The actress, who is currently starring in the new thriller “Intruder”, thought about having spent the last decade of her life on the popular variety show.
“It’s been exactly 10 years since I appeared on SBS ‘Running Man’,” said Song Ji Hyo. “I was 30 years old [by Korean reckoning] when I started and turned 40 this year. “Running Man” was definitely a big part of my thirties. It feels strange that something outside of my family has taken up so much of my life. But I am very grateful [for the show]. Running Man was an opportunity that played the biggest role in making me a topic of discussion. “
The actress expressed her deep affection and gratitude for the show and said: “It is difficult to put into words what” Running Man “means to me because it is not easy to spend more than 10 years together [something or someone]. For example, we change our cell phones so often and even move, and if we do that, that’s the end. But because I spent my thirties with my colleagues and the program, I was able to grow and improve. “
Song Ji Hyo also raised the fact that she was considering ending the show and explained why she ultimately decided to stay.
“Of course, there were times when I was struggling with the physical aspect of the show due to exhaustion, and I even thought about stopping,” she admitted. “But to me” Running Man “feels like a promise I made and my desire to keep that promise was stronger [than my exhaustion]. ”
When she was in her forties (based on Korean calculations), Song Ji told Hyo that she was looking forward to taking on new challenges in the next chapter of her life.
“I don’t really feel my age,” said the actress. “For me, the only difficult part of getting older is starting to lose stamina. I actually feel like I can do a lot more things that I like now. There are things that I have not been able to try in the past and that I can try now. “
Song Ji Hyo also revealed that she does not intend to get married soon unless the right person enters her life. “It’s hard enough to take care of myself,” she laughed. “I really enjoy my life now. So if I don’t meet someone for whom I would be willing to change my lifestyle and daily routine, I have no intention of getting married.”
Song Ji Hyo’s new film “Intruder” recently had the highest number of moviegoers on the first day of all Korean films released since the outbreak of COVID-19.
