Here’s a million-dollar question: what’s the capital of Singapore?
Take a moment to guess.
If you’ve said Yishun, power to you: we concur though that’s completely wrong.
Chances are, some of you won’t even know the answer, and might not even know what “capital” means.
Here’s a bit of a context before we move on.
What’s a Capital of a Country?
Lest you’ve returned whatever you’ve learned in geography classes back to your teacher, here’s a brief idea of what capital of a country is.
In Wikipedia, it’s stated as a “the municipality exercising primary status in a country, state, province, or other administrative region, usually as its seat of government.”
To quote an example, Malaysia’s capital is Kuala Lumpur. But why not, say, JB or Melaka?
That’s because that’s where the Government is located.
But how about Singapore?
Singapore is small; so small, the entire country is a city, unlike Malaysia whereby there are many cities.
In other words, Singapore’s capital is, well, Singapore. You can’t say that Singapore’s capital is in Orchard because The Istana is located there, simply because Orchard isn’t a city, but merely a place.
So, now to Running Man, the show that some of us have stopped watching but might just watch again with this new episode.
Running Man Since Its “Cancellation”
Long-time Running Man fans would remember the saga whereby the show was announced to be cancelled by February 2017. Fans all over the world cried, but it took a U-turn as Kim Jong Kook turned the table and convinced every member to stay on.
But there were major changes: Gary had left and two new members, Jeon So-min (every guy’s new girlfriend now) and Yang Se-chan joined the team.
If you’ve not been watching, the two new members did blend into the team very well. And if I’ve not said it yet, I’ll say it again: Jeon So-min is every guy’s new bae.
Here, one more picture for you.
And she’s surprisingly already 32 years old.
