On December 14, Kim Kyung Ho made a guest appearance on MBC “Golden Fishery – Radio Star” and addressed the recent gay rumors. The hosts of the show first revealed a picture of Kim Kyung Ho and Kim Yeon Woo dressed in matching pink shirts, questioning the truth behind rumors of him being a male-lover.
“No. It might be because of my voice, but I’m a ‘real’ man (as in being a macho-type of guy)… I go crazy over girls. I love SISTAR. Hyorin has caught my heart already,” Kim Kyung Ho said.
Jung Sung Ho, who was Kim Kyung Ho’s manager on MBC “I Am a Singer,” added, “I get questioned a lot about his sexuality. They ask if Kim Kyung Ho really likes guys, but I tell them he’s not.”
Recent rumors speculated Kim Kyung Ho’s true sexuality mainly because of his long hair and feminine demeanor. He has a soft voice and his posture is very feminine in a lot of ways, making people wonder if he was indeed gay.
In fact, Kim Kyung Ho is not the first male celebrity to be questioned about his sexual orientation. In the past, Super Junior’s Heechul, comedian Hong Rok Gee, No Hong Chul, Jung Yeop, Tei, and Kang Dong Won have all been involved in gay rumors, which all turned out to be false.
Here’s a video of Kim Kyung Ho’s performance with Kim Yeon Woo. Does it still make you question his sexual orientation?
