The hit South Korean reality show “Running Man” is finally getting a local version.

And among those excited about it is Kapuso actress Glaiza de Castro, who is quite happy to be tapped as part of the cast along with Mikael Daez, Ruru Madrid, Buboy Villar, Lexi Gonzales, Kokoy de Santos, and Angel Guardian.

During a recent virtual press conference, Glaiza noted how the show is a nice opportunity for her to do something different for a change.

“Kasi halos lahat kami ay nakikita niyong umaarte sa TV, sa pelikula. So I think magandang avenue sa amin para makita ng mga tao kung sino talaga kami,” she related.

Note the show tasks members and guests to complete various missions and games, which could get wild at times.

Glaiza maintained she and her cast mates are “ready” for any challenges.

“And I think mas maganda nga na hindi namin iniisip yung image namin kasi for the longest time ayun yung concern namin pag ka sa Instagram, sa TV. So I think para rin sa aming mga actors, parang break din siya to not care too much about our image and how we look. So dito talaga ang concern namin is, of course, to enjoy, to do the challenges, to accomplish the mission na ibibigay sa amin and hopefully makabuo ng magandang foundation pagdating sa friendship.”

The cast will be flying to South Korea, staying there for two months.

Glaiza quipped: “Ito na yung rurok ng mga pangarap ko.”

But turning serious, she related: “Siyempre honor po na makapunta ng Korea hindi lang to travel kasi iba yung magpunta ka ng Korea para mamasyal. Pero to have an opportunity to work there and to collaborate with the Korean production staff, and hopefully beke nemen ma-meet namin yung original cast ng ‘Running Man.'”

“Napakalaking opportunity po and sobrang honored kami na kabilang kami sa mga napiling host dito for ‘Running Man Philippines,'” she reiterated.

In terms of her relationship with other members, Glaiza sees the trip as a good way for them to bond.

“Kapag gusto mong makilala yung isang tao, isama mo siya sa travel. Kasi na-experience ko yan, talagang na te-test yung friendship, yung relationship pag nasa ibang bansa.”

She noted how it’s normal for a group of people to have arguments and misunderstandings.

“Lalo pa sa Korea may language barrier. Iba yung characters ng mga signs so biglang maliligaw ka, di alam ang gagawin,” she said.

“Pero I think excited din kami and looking forward kami to whatever happens. Open kami sa misunderstanding kung magkakaroon man kasi parte yun ng journey namin. Kasi kung lagi kaming masaya, di parang hindi naman reality yun,” she added.

“So kasabay ng mga pag e-enjoy namin ay yung learning namin sa characteristics ng bawat isa. And accept it kung satingin namin nakakainis yung personality ni Mikael, ni Ruru. Talagang dito makikita kung sino talaga sila. I-accept namin yun kasi ayun yung totoong buhay.”

Glaiza pointed out how they’re not out there to prove anything.

“Wala kaming dapat patunayan kung hindi ma-enjoy at gawin yung dapat namin gawin. Kasi the more we think about na kailangan may mapatunayan – e wala naman kaming roles kailangan i-play – I think mag manifest yung tingin namin kailangan namin patunayan sarili namin. Ang intensyon really is enjoy and mag manifest sa mapapanuod ng tao.”
