However, Song Ji Hyo also stated that she has not declined any role given to her. With that in mind, we could also assume she's simply not being offered very many roles. The show got mediocre ratings, between eight and nine percent for the most part. The Jackal Is Coming had a mediocre box office reception despite the presence of one of the biggest idols in Korea, Kim Jaejoong. Many credit the popularity of Running Man for that and I agree that the show has greatly contributed to her getting noticed by producers, writers, and directors.

It was a long haul to success, but one that eventually paid off. In other words, Kang Gary was already successful in his field before Running Man, and the show only helped him become more mainstream.
By that time, however, his credibility, skill, and reputation as a rapper and musician had already been solidified. Unconsciously or consciously, Kang Gary was also able to differentiate his career as a musician from his persona as a variety star. It was only recently that he accommodated Song Ji Hyo-related questions in his LeeSsang interviews and even then it was quite brief.
