Song Ji-hyo. Much has been written and said about Ace Ji-hyo, Running Man's wonder girl and how her addition to the show has brought out a side of her that even she probably didn't know she had.
She's the only female cast member in Running Man, but is still able to hold her own against all of them. To achieve this feat, I assume that she has some sort of superpower behind that petite frame and mostly blank face. Superpowers such as...
Song Ji-hyo can sleep anywhere, any time. It's understandable, since Ji-hyo is one of the hottest stars, and she has film, drama and advertisement commitments besides filming for Running Man. But she takes sleeping to the next level, literally, especially in episode 178, when she fell asleep while perched up on the giant Jenga tower.
Which leads me to the next point...
Ji-hyo is fearless. Well, not all the time because she's scared of slimy things like eels and snakes and worms but generally, Ji-hyo shows an almost limitless amount of courage as compared to her male Running Man costars. This is evidenced plenty of times on the show; by the way she bravely took on Choo Sung-hoon in episode 150
to leaping off the Macau Tower in episode 133 to being the bullet of a blob jump.
Not many female actresses would dare to do half the things Ji-hyo does. This of course, leads to her being a...
#3 Gold Magnet
When it comes to gold prizes on Running Man, Ji-hyo has won almost 80% of the time, earning her the nickname Gold Ji-hyo. It's not a surprise really, seeing how she gives her all to win every mission (see Fearlessness above).
It's almost scary how much gold she was won since the gold prizes were introduced on the show. This could also be thanks to her...
#2 Sixth Sense
Ji-hyo may be nicknamed Mong Ji for being blur and blank all the time, but when the going gets tough, she really knows how to work those brain cells and figure out what exactly is going on. That's why she's the Ace of Running Man.
She has an uncanny ability to figure out if the other members or guests are up to something suspicious, or strike before the iron is hot and get opposing teams out. This is why she's a perfect fit for the role of a spy, because almost all the other Running Man members (except for Jong-kook), often need Ji-hyo's sixth sense to figure out what's going on in the mission.
If all else fails...
Ji-hyo is not down to using aegyo to achieve her win. She hides it well behind her blank expression, but when required, she can bust some of the cutest moves this side of a Hot Issue dance.
Most of the time, she'll use it against her Monday Boyfriend, Gary but sometimes, she'll use it on the gullible male guests as well. The other Running Man members are all immune to this superpower, so it isn't as effective a superpower as she would like it to be.
Or is it?
So out of all these superpowers that Song Ji-hyo has on Running Man, which ones are your absolute favorites? Or which ones do you think I may have missed out? Leave a comment below!
And for all those Running Man fans who are celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri, SELAMAT HARI RAYA, MAAF ZAHIR DAN BATIN!
