Students these days are all into The Running Man game. The game involves running around and trying to rip off the name tags stuck on each other′s backs, just like in the variety show.

Because this game is so popular, some stationary stores located around schools sell Running Man name tags. One costs about 2,000 won.

If these name tags cost 2,000 won, how much do the real name tags used in the show cost? The October 17 broadcast of SBS′ One Night of TV Entertainment looked into the issue to answer the question.

′Running Man′ Name Tags Cost 60,000 Won Each

The episode revealed more than just the price of the name tags. It also found out that the Running Man name tags were often reused. The producers kept the name tags used by the Running Man members, and used them whenever they were needed. Because the rules of the game often changed, the name tags came in many different shapes and sizes.

What was more surprising was the actual price of these name tags. Although the ones sold in stationary stores cost 2,000 won, the real ones cost a whopping 60,000 won. This was because the name tags were all made by hand. Every letter in everyone′s name had been sewn in by hand.

The producers of Running Man said, "Since our name tags were all sewn in inch by inch, they′re different from the ones being sold in stores and the prices also differ greatly."
