On the December 14 broadcast of the hit SBS variety program “Running Man,” the cast members, together with guests Kim Woo Bin and Lee Hyun Woo of the movie “The Technicians,” were divided into teams and had a staring battle wherein the person who blinks first loses.
Kim Jong Kook was the first member to go on a stare off with HaHa. While trying their best to keep their eyes open, HaHa, who skillfully protected his eyes from blinking, asked Kim Jong Kook, “Do you like Yoon Eun Hye? Or do you like Moon Geun Young?,” making Kim Jong Kook laugh. Kim Jong Kook has had some history with Yoon Eun Hye while he has mentioned that Moon Geun Young is his ideal girl in previous episodes of “Running Man.”
Having seen how Kim Jong Kook reacted to the mention of Yoon Eun Hye’s name, Gary knew how to attack the singer when they had their match. While on a staring battle with Kim Jong Kook, Gary mentioned Yoon Eun Hye’s name and finally, Kim Jong Kook blinked his eye as he laughed.
Kim Jong Kook and Yoon Eun Hye developed a strong love line while they were in the SBS variety program “X-Man.” The two were rumored to have been in a relationship however, they never really admitted to it.
