He posted a photo of him and his wife on 21st May 2020 with the caption “we’re married” (我们结婚啦 wǒmen jiéhūn la).

In Keep Running Season 4, he was “flagged” to lose 10 kilos.

Let’s just wait and see whether he can do it.

立(lì) flag is an internet saying. which means you say something you wish for or say something in a jokey way, but don’t end up sticking to what you’ve said. It’s a bit like making an unrealistic bet.

He joined Keep Running Season 2 as a guide.

Now he is a host in this season.

The other hosts like to jokingly remind him that he is the oldest one.

Well for one, being really handsome, and the other being a great singer.

Keep Running Season Ⅳ: Games

Rip the nameplate(撕名牌sī míngpái) is a very famous game through all these seasons.

The original game one is from the Korean version of Running Man.

The participant has their name stuck to their back and the other players have to rip the “nameplate” off without hurting them.

The TV show has changed it a little bit and make it harder. I think it is a good game to play outside with your friends, it could even be a good thing to do for a team building.

They also have lots of challenges and other great games during the show.
