More Run Brother recaps for fun :)) Finally, we get the episode with Yang Mi! I did 4 episodes at once again because I felt lazy :”D… go to the end of the article for some Luhan+Kris reunion information ^^! Happy week-end everyone!
Ep. 9 Who Stole the Treasure? with Yang Mi
As a big fan of Running Man, the problem with watching the Chinese version is the lack of suspense. Each time they play a game, I already know what the concept is and most likely, how the episode will end. This time, they chose the concept of Reincarnation which is one of my favorites 😀 The episode also contains TWO name tag ripping segments, which is a lot of fun to watch! Yang Mi must have set her mind to rip some tags off, since she is brave enough to take initiative and refuse to hide. As always, Luhan is the first one OUT, thanks to Yang Mi. Sigh, he should really start to look out for his back. The first part of the episode is set in 1960s, and we are left wondering… did Angelababy or Deng Chao win? During the second part, the game is set in 2015 and they is reincarnated into each other’s body. Only Zheng Kai, who was visited by a magician before the period change, remains in his old body. The mission: find the eight keys and the treasure box to win the game. I won’t divulge what happens for the rest of the episode, but I highly recommend you to watch it! Yang Mi was adorable and the game twist was fun to watch. Also, the winner may surprise you :))…
Ep.10 Run Brother VS PDs with Wang Baoqiang
For the New Year, what better way of celebrating 2016 than watching the Run Brother cast trying hard to win games? Instead of a variety show, this episode looks a lot more like an educational show about hard work and friendship/brotherhood. In it, the eight members must work together to accomplish almost impossible missions. Their prize? Watch the PDs fall in the water. Personally, I believe the missions where not that hard, since they were able to accomplish everything. There was 4 missions: cross the river on a boat made of plastic bottles, run a marathon and arrive at the final location faster than a bus, successfully read the character on a flying ping pong ball in 30 seconds for 3 times, and a series of mini games against the PDs themselves. For me, the games where not that interesting, since I knew from the start that they were going to win and the lack of humour made the episode boring. However, the episode is nice in the sense that we get to see the PDs, and some of them are really handsome and fit 8D!
Ep. 11 with Goddess
guests: Sui He, Zhang Langxin, Bea Hayden, Xiong Danlin, Lianne Li
The most beautiful guests ever! If you are a guy, you wouldn’t want to miss it… I am watching the episodes on the official website of Jiangsu TV and it is surprising how the recent episodes all have more than 1M views! Oversea Chinese viewers are slowly conquering Youtube ^^. Lianne Li is the wife of Wang Zulan and it is adorable how they have been put in the same team. They are super loving with each other and I love how much she cares for her husband ^^. When asked who she want as her partner, Sui He chose Deng Chao. As he tried to thank her, his saliva falls off his mouth… xD making everyone laugh (thirsty, oppa?). As for me, my favorite guest was Bea Hayden. During the games, Luhan is doing the best (someone studied well in Chinese language classes back at home ^^) while Chen He did a good job through out the episode to prove Sui He that he is capable man! Clap clap! All the games where very cozy and even though the final game was not outstanding, I think it is a family friendly episode to watch if you have time 🙂
Ep. 12 Final Episode of Season 3
Last episode of the season… anyone else is excited? I honestly found this season very average and that is why I started to write less for each new episode. Of course, the cast still bring me laughter and happiness, but I am no longer that excited to watch the new episodes. Instead, I have been watching a lot of Go Fighting! and Late 80s Talk Show and if anyone is interested, I can write a review for it. Now back to this special episode in Australia, the land of Kangaroos and Joeys! The episode start smoothly with everyone cooking and relaxing together. Surprisingly, Chen He is the best cook whereas Baby made a potato fly in air by trying to cut it. The next day, they all play a small race to determine who will get the advantage during the ultimate game. Everyone looks adorable in kangaroo suits and Deng Chao is the one who wins. Now, the finale game! It is Harry Potter concept (RIP Alan Rickman). Everyone is put in a different school and therefore possess different magic powers. I find it ironic how Wang Zulan is put in Magic Department of Science… isn’t that an oxymoron? Anyway, back to our classic name tag event! DC get’s the power of invisibility and it is cute how he is playing with the other member’s face… to their despair. After an exciting segment of run and chase… the strongest members are among the first to be eliminated…the ultimate winner is: Chen He!
Sad it is all over? Don’t worry! There is a new surprise for all Run Brother fans out there! Run Brother is collaborating with Challenger Alliance! I wonder how Kris Wu and Luhan will interact! And how the RB crew will tease Fang Bingbing and Li Chen 8D…
