Ok, so never heard of Running Man? Neither had we until Twitter started going crazy this morning with #runningmanindubai trending and their fans going semi-wild. We checked them out and turns out they're a pretty big deal. Running Man is a South Korean variety show that launched back in 2010 and forms part of SBS's Good Sunday lineup. It first started to get attention as the 'come-back show' for Youu Jae-suk, the main MC of the show.

It was first rumoured last January that the show had been invited to come to Dubai for a 'Dubai Special' (they did a 'Shanghai Special' recently too) but they kept their lips sealed as to whether this was confirmed or not. That is, however, until they tweeted that some of their stars were enroute to our lovely Emirate.

Here's what their fans have been tweeting:
