All good things must come to an end and after six years, it appears that the Monday Couple will be breaking up.

On October 25, popular Korean variety show "Running Man" announced that main cast member Gary will be leaving the show. According to reports, Gary had revealed to the production staff earlier this year that he planned to leave the show in order to focus on his musical, and while everyone tried to convince him to stay, the staff decided to respect Gary's wishes. 

In response to Gary's departure, the "Running Man" staff released a short statement thanking Gary and wishing him well:

“We sincerely thank Gary for putting everything into the show for [six] years, as one of the original members of ‘Running Man.’ Gary wishes to focus on his career as a musician, and we wish him the best.”

We're going to miss you, Gary, and we wish you only the best for whatever you do in the future!

Let's take a trip down memory lane and remember that time when the Running Man crew - and Gary - were in Australia for some of their usual shenanigans:
