Relationships form the basis of what makes Running Man one of the most watchable and hilarious variety shows ever. The cast have a strong, almost familial relationship which translates well both on and off screen. On screen though, there are plenty of "couples" formed through the years of teaming up together; the Monday Couple and the Easy Brothers as examples. Still, there are plenty more couple mix-ups which I think the show could promote more of.
Couple such as...
#8 Yoo-Kook Couple (Eternal Rivals)
Yoo Jae-suk and Kim Jong-kook have been rivals since the beginning of the show. Both are capable leaders, have their own personalities and always at each other's throats. It's always fun to see a dysfunctional couple paired together and just let the fireworks come out.
#7 Gary-Giraffe Couple
One of the less focused on couples in the show. They haven't had a chance to show off their teamwork but their pairing is guaranteed to garner the laughs. Case in point: episode 182 where Kwang-soo and Gary played the horse acupuncture mat race.
#6 Yoo-Mong (Candy Alliance)
The Candy Alliance first formed in It's no doubt that Jae-suk and Ji-hyo have an infectiously cute relationship; equal parts bickering and kinship.
Jae-suk even knows Ji-hyo's scent as seen on many occasions. Plus, with the Ace and a capable Yoomes Bond, they'd literally be unstoppable.
#5 Kwang-Mong Couple
Ah the siblings.

#4 Impala-Tiger Couple
The strongest and weakest links need to get together as a team. On one hand, they'll be a fair fight for the rest of the members. And it's great to see how Jong-kook reacts to Suk-jin's inability to complete missions. This is what "tipping the scales" means, literally.
#3 Sparta-Gae Couple
The pairing of the Commander and the Sudden Commander is almost as deadly as the SpartAce couple; both are capable of completing missions with record time, and deft in nametag ripping. A pairing like this doesn't happen too often because imagine how unfair it would be to the rest.
#2 Yoo-Lee Brothers
One of the best couples we need to see more of on during Running Man. The Yoo-Lee brothers are basically the best comic relief you'll ever need. They have perfect chemistry; Kwang-soo is the perfect foil to Jae-suk. Plus, Jae-suk's inner bully always tends to surface around Kwang-soo, and the results are hilarious.
#1 Ha-Yoo Couple
Another pairing that has the equal mix of disdain, teasing and ribbing to make their interactions fun and engaging. Everything, from their famous "YAAAAHH!" cry to their general banter leaves us all in stitches,
Which one of these couples are your favorite? And which other couples do you enjoy seeing on Running Man? Leave a comment below!
