Tiger JK recently appeared as a guest in the “Star Lap Time” segment of XTM’s “Top Gear Korea Season 5” where celebrities put their driving skills to the test.
“Star Lap Time” is a popular segment of the show where celebrities drive a Volkswagen Polo on a track, and their lap time gets recorded.
Tiger JK, who is famous for his lack of direction and doesn’t usually drive, said, “Before I did it, I felt very nervous, and I didn’t want to do it, but it was actually fun,” and expressed his satisfaction towards his first circuit racing experience. He went on to say, “I could’ve gone faster, but I fooled around on the corners.”
Tiger JK showed a different side of himself compared to his charismatic personality on stage. He wore a cute helmet and cheered as he sped along the “Top Gear Track.”
In connection to his wife, Yoon Mi Rae, Tiger JK revealed, “I still get butterflies in my stomach like I did when I first met her.” However, he evoked laughter when he revealed, “Mi Rae has a worse sense of direction than I do. She still gets confused between left and right.”
Tiger JK’s lap time will be revealed on the November 10 episode of “Top Gear Korea Season 5.”
