The cast of popular Korean game show Running Man will return to Singapore for a second fan meet in November.

The fan meet's line-up has not been announced. Fingers are crossed that all seven hosts will make it to Singapore.

At the first Running Man fan meet held last October, five out of the seven members entertained a full-house crowd of 3,000 at the Singapore Expo Hall. Absent were the goofy, gangly Lee Kwang Soo and the eloquent Yoo Jae Suk, nicknamed "the nation's MC".

Lucky fans were picked to play games onstage with the cheeky HaHa ( Ha Dong Hoon), the sinewy Kim Jong Kook and the bumbling Jee Seok Jin. They each took turns to serenade the audience. Ardent fans of the show took the chance to goad Gary Kang into giving his "partner" Song Ji Hyo a kiss. The pair make up the "Monday Couple", a label that has stuck through constant teasing on the show, although they are not in a romantic relationship.

The November fan meet's organiser, Korean entertainment channel One, also announced that they will be holding a fan meet for the first time in Malaysia in the same month.

More details of the "Race Start! Season 2 in Singapore & Malaysia" of the Running Man Fan Meeting Asia Tour 2014 will be revealed later.
