Kim Jong Kook‘s associate told the media on February 11 that he has personally apologized to actress Yoon Eun Hye for the current social media campaign that has been happening to get her to guest on his variety program “Running Man.”
The associate said, “He has called [Yoon Eun Hye] himself to apologize for what has been happening.” They also commented, “He seems to feel really sorry as it may be stressful for her.”
They further continued, “Kim Jong Kook is also taken aback at how big this has become, as he just brought her up in passing. When he feels like he’s burdening someone, he can’t just let it go either. He had to call her himself to apologize.”
