The star-studded listof presenters includes some of the top K-Drama and variety stars of the year including “Running Man” cast members Song Ji Hyo and Lee Kwang Soo.

In addition to the appearance of the “Running Man” stars, “Roommates” cast members Lee Dong Wook and Park Min Woo were also named as MAMA 2014 presenters. 2014 was a busy year for Lee Dong Wook, who starred in the weekend drama “Hotel King” followed by the supernatural drama “Blade Man.” Park Min Woo currently stars in the weekend drama “Modern Farmer,” opposite FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki and Honey Lee.
