Kim Jong Kook shared further information about the dating rumors with Yoon Eun Hye — but he confused the people even more.
For years, both Kim Jong Kook and Yoon Eun Hye have constantly dealt with relationship rumors ever since their love line on X-Man became a hit. Although the show ended over a decade ago, their famous Of Course scene still dominates variety shows these days.
After keeping his silence for years, the Running Man star bravely talked about it but confused the public even more.
Did Kim Jong Kook Date Yoon Eun Hye?
During the June 22 episode of the KBS2 show Problem Child In House, host Jung Hyung Don mentioned that the program welcomed two celebrities who have the biggest dating scandals in the industry — Kim Jong Kook and Kim Sook.
The pair have always been shipped to Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Dae Hyung, respectively.
In one part of the show, Kim Sook jokingly asked Kim Jong Kook when his wedding date was. The Running Man star said that his wedding had been scheduled since 10 years ago.
When asked why he never denied the rumors, Kim Jong Kook said, “If I keep on talking about it, then it becomes a big issue. When this topic comes up, I've found that it's best to just be quiet. Just quickly move along to the next topic."
However, the opposite happened to Kim Sook, as her fake wedding date went viral without her knowledge. Still, Kim Jong Kook insisted that dating rumors would go away despite coming up over and over again.
He suggested that the other way to get rid of the rumors is to see one of them get married to someone else.
But Jung Hyung Don caught him by saying that neither Kim Jong Kook nor Yoon Eun Hye got married 20 years after their love line started.
In the end, he left a cryptic message, saying that Yoon Eun Hye should get married instead so the dating rumors would finally be over.
Yoon Eun Hye Recently Hinted At Her Past Relationship With Kim Jong Kook
Before Kim Jong Kook spoke up, Yoon Eun Hye reignited the rumors by uploading a since-deleted video of her discussing her ex-lover.
In May, the actress said that she gave a present to her ex-boyfriend. It was a notebook wherein she wrote all the texts her ex sent to her.
She clarified that her ex was a good man. But one day, his texts became short until they ended their relationship for good.
It resonated with what Kim Jong Kook shared in an episode of SBS’s My Little Old Boy, saying that he received handwritten texts from his ex-girlfriend, who used to call him “prince.”
As the dating rumors are yet to reach its end, it is highly likely that the two celebrities will deal with it until they truly get married to someone else.
