Hyun-Jin Ryu Plays a Human Bowling Ball - Gets a Strike! (.gif's)

As you know, Hyun-Jin Ryu has been a consistent presence on an Korean "urban action variety" show called the "Running Man" the past couple of years.  Last year he paired up with fellow MLB star Shin-Soo Choo to play some psychic supernatural Baseball and worked his magic with a Hula Hoop in another episode.

This time he runs around with a bunch of folks to participate is some strange, yet hilarious, high-jinks.  Unfortunately, the show is in Korean and there are no English subtitles.  Still, even though I couldn't understand a word, I found myself laughing at many of the sequences. 

Check out some .gif's I put together of the best moments.  Below, the show participants meet with Ryu and proceed to accost him like a gang of old grandmothers.

After driving around in a car, meeting some folks on the street and playing some sort of jump rope game the "Running Man" crew head to a local swimming pool to play some human bowling.

That's right, they will be human bowling balls and Hyun-Jin Ryu is tasked with throwing his large prodigious body towards a set of pins.  It's both hilarious and troublesome at the same time.  After all, the big guy could've hurt himself.  Or, he could've bowled a 7-10 split; which would have required another embarrassing dive down the lubed-up lane.  I can just imagine him having to sprawl out like a ungainly log - trying to reach both ends to get a spare.

On second thought, I would have loved to see that again.  But as you can see, Ryu bowled a wondrous strike; to the joy and disbelief of the gallery.

The best part of all are the numerous reactions from the crowd.  I am laughing just thinking about it.

BTW, you can watch this entire episode here.
