iKON’s B.I impressed when he read out a poem he had written that struck a chord with the cast of “Running Man.”
The September 9 episode of “Running Man” was a continuation of the “Truth or Dare” special with Lee Elijah, Lee Si Ah, Lee Joo Yeon, Kim Ji Min, Sunmi, BIGBANG’s Seungri, and iKON’s Bobby and B.I.
Each guest had to write a special skill that they have, and B.I wrote that he was confident in writing poems. He explained, “It’s because I write a lot of lyrics.” He then revealed that he had actually written a poem for “Running Man,” and he proceeded to read it out loud. His poem was as follows:
“Title: ‘Running Man’
A microcosm of our society, ‘Running Man’
My mother told me that screen time determines your wage
You are the only one in charge of your screen time
When everyone else is saying yes,
You have to say no to appear on TV
When you get slapped on your left cheek,
You have to offer your right cheek for one of the slaps to appear on TV
In order to survive in this animal kingdom full of predators
I must become a fox
Lee Kwang Soo, he is my only target.”
Though B.I apologized and said that he’d rushed to write the poem last night, Yoo Jae Suk stated that he had really struck a chord in them all as they related to every word as members of a variety show. Though Lee Kwang Soo was slightly taken aback by the last part, everyone applauded B.I’s efforts to write a great poem.
