South Korean variety TV show Running Man will hold an online fan meeting via TikTok, the world’s leading short-form mobile videos, on September 5.
The SBS variety show, Running Man, has gained massive popularity worldwide since its first broadcast in 2010. Since 2013, Running Man members have been visiting their fans overseas with fan meets and various performances.
The Running Man 2021 Online Fan Meeting will be planned and produced by NP C&C, a subsidiary of NPInc., a brand experience content solutions company, and will be held at NP XR STAGE. The fan meeting will also be broadcast live on the global short-form mobile video platform, TikTok.
“TikTok’s paid live feature was first introduced in May, and we have received positive feedback as well as meaningful results afterward, including Lotte Duty-Free Online Family Concert, Beautiful Mint Life 2021, and FOREST 21 Epik High Concert. TikTok will continue to make efforts to provide better customer experiences to domestic and foreign users,” said Jay Bae, head of global business development at TikTok Korea.
Running Man 2021 Online Fan Meeting will open tickets through SM Tickets and various overseas ticket companies at 12PM (PST) on July 16.
The show will be broadcast live to global audiences in six different languages: Korean, English, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Indonesian at 6PM (PST) on September 5.
Running Man‘s overseas fan meetings and performances have been popular in many regions like Southeast Asia. A previous fan meeting was held successfully in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam in December 2019.
The Manila fan meeting, despite having to be rescheduled due to the COVID 19 outbreak, is still recognized as one of the best K-performances, as tickets sold out within one hour of going on sale.
