Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Jong Kook’s fans still stir dating rumors years after their love line on X-Man started.

It has been over a decade since Yoon Eun Hye, and Kim Jong Kook sparked relationship rumors due to the love line they established on X-Man. When they parted ways after the show ended in 2007, they continued working in their respective industries until their most famous scene in the variety program trended again.

For what it’s worth, the Running Man star famously covered her ears during the Of Course game in X-Man, becoming one of the most reenacted scenes from X-Man.

Recently, they found themselves in the same buzz again after the actress uploaded a video on her YouTube channel.

Yoon Eun Hye, Kim Jong Kook Reignite Past Relationship

On May 17, the Fluttering Warning actress uploaded a since-deleted video on her YouTube channel in which she talked about her ex-boyfriend. She revealed to her viewers that it was the first time she had shared that particular story.

Yoon Eun Hye said that she gave a present to her ex-boyfriend. She added that she wrote all the texts her ex-boyfriend sent to her in a notebook.

After a few months of dating, she gave it to the man as a gift.

She clarified that her ex was a good man. But one day, his texts became short until they ended their relationship for good.

Fans immediately noticed her story’s similarities to what Kim Jong Kook shared in an episode of SBS’s My Little Old Boy. At that time, he said that he had received a gift from an ex-girlfriend.

"There was an ex-girlfriend who once hand-wrote all the texts that I had sent her. She used to call me her Prince. As time went by, my text messages became shorter. I once sent her a text that only read, 'Going to the gym,'" he said.

With that, everyone was left shocked that online communities immediately made their names appear on the hot topics list.

Since the actress deleted the video after the talks started, it sparked more rumors that she might truly be referring to Kim Jong Kook.

Yoon Eun Hye’s Agency Clarifies Reports

After the rumors came out, Yoon Eun Hye’s agency quickly dismissed the claims and said that the video was not related to Kim Jong Kook in any way.

“In the case of the YouTube video, there were many problems, and since we have been uploading a video every week for over a year, we determined that we needed a period of rest, so we are in the process of rechecking [the video] and preparing for Season 2,” it explained.

It defended that it deleted the video, not because of an article about her past relationship.


Kim Jong Kook and his representative are yet to comment on the new matter.
