With Keep Running Season 4 奔跑吧4 (technically season 8 if we’re counting from the very beginning of Running Man China before the name change to Keep Running) about to start filming, it’s finally time to put the many casting speculations to rest as the show announces its official lineup by having everyone draw caricatures of each other.
OG members Angelababy, Li Chen and Ryan Zheng Kai who were around even when the show was still called Running Man China are back. Of the new additions last year, only Lucas Wong and Song Yuqi will return though they aren’t able to make it in time for filming due to the pandemic. Zhu Yawen and Ian Wang Yanlin will be replaced by Cai Xukun, Guo Qilin and Sha Yi.

I really thought that Song Yuqi wouldn’t be back with three new members and her keeping busy with (G)I-DLE activities in Korea, but I guess they decided to have 8 members for Keep Running Season 4. Cai Xukun’s popularity has soared even higher now with him being the charismatic representative in Youth With You 2, so his participation is surely something to look forward to. As for Guo Qilin, you must watch Joy of Life! Even so, I still really miss the old cast.
