It was a sad day when Gary announced that he was leaving "Running Man", but it appears that both the star and show can't stop coming back into each others arms!

Following up on his post-departure appearance on "Running Man", new reports have come out stating that Gary is set to make yet another return on the popular variety show. The show is currently in the midst of a "member's race", whereby each cast member is the central focus of a race that's based on one of their wishes, and Gary is set to receive his own special race.

While the former cast member's appearance will only be a one-off special appearance, producer Lee Hwan Jin revealed that not only is Gary's upcoming appearance a surprise for fans, the rest of the cast didn't have any idea that he was returning, which should make for some great variety show shenanigans.

As for what fans can expect from Gary's special episode, all details have been kept secret so we'll just have to wait until January 29 to find out what happens.
