Kim Jong Kook managed to confuse his co-workers when he continued to discuss dating rumors with actress Yoon Eun Hye in the past.
Quote from Allkpop on Thursday (23/6/2022), on the latest episode of the KBS2 variety show ‘Problem Child In House’ which aired on June 22, 2022 yesterday, the cast members discussed the dating scandals of the artists.
MC Jung Hyung Don commented, “Two celebrities who have the biggest dating scandal rumors in Korean entertainment world are here. Rumors of Kim Jong Kook and Yoon Eun Hye’s dating scandal, as well as Kim Sook and Lee Dae Hyung’s scandal.“
Kim Sook jokingly asked Kim Jong Kook, “So when is your wedding date? My wedding date is already scheduled.”
In response to Kim Sook’s question, Kim Jong Kook responded, “My wedding date was already scheduled ten years ago.”
Another cast member, Min Kyung Hoon, then asked out of curiosity. “I wonder why you never dodge the dating rumors?“
Kim Jong Kook replied, “If I keep talking about it, then the rumors will become a big scandal. When a topic like this comes up, I prefer to remain silent, and move on to the next topic.”
However, Kim Sook did not agree with Kim Jong Kook’s opinion. “I kept quiet while the dating rumors were circulating, but then suddenly a wedding date that I don’t even know when, just floated around in the media..”
Kim Jong Kook then explained more, “Rumors will appear again and again, but will slowly disappear on their own. Or the real thing to dismiss the rumors is if one of the artists got married.“
Jung Hyung Don then said, “But it’s been more than twenty years, and neither of you are married.”
Finally, even Kim Jong Kook couldn’t dodge and replied, “Why didn’t Yoon Eun Hye get married soon? He should just get married, and all these rumors would end.“
Dating rumors between Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Jong Kook in the past resurfaced when Yoon Eun Hye uploaded a video on her YouTube channel on May 17, 2022.
In the video, Yoon Eun Hye talks about her ex-boyfriend, and fans attribute it to Kim Jong Kook, considering the two were paired up on a variety show.
