Simon Pegg’s food savvy makes him a variety show ace in Running Man guesting
Running Man, one of Korea’s longest running variety shows recently concluded its Mission Impossible special episode which featured a double agent storyline and special guest appearances of the film’s stars Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill and Simon Pegg.
The three Hollywood actors, who played the role of M agency’s senior agents went up against Running man’s R agents, who were trying to uncover who the three double agents belong to M agency were. Tom, Henry and Simon played the popular games like the metal box challenge, the mystery box challenge and the Pirate Roulette.
Simon immediately became a beloved variety ace when he won against Lee Kwangsoo in guessing broccoli was inside the metal box and even ate it after the content was revealed. He followed through with the winning streak when he beat Song Ji Hyo in guessing that the mystery box contained gooey pasta.
It seemed like Simon’s familiarity with food made him a perfect foil to Running Man cast’s antics.
