Rumors have recently been circulating amongst fans of the SBS variety show that the two stars are in a relationship, with fans dubbing them “The Ace Couple” and, more recently, “The Nevis Swing Couple.”
On the upcoming Christmas special of “Running Man,” Song Ji Hyo responds to the rising speculation that she and Kim Jong Kook are dating. “I know that according to fans, there is a love line between me and Kim Jong Kook,” she acknowledges, adding with a laugh, “There were even reports of the two of us getting married.”
Ji Suk Jin replies jokingly, “I’ll bet my entire fortune that the two of them are not dating,” confirming that “The Ace Couple” is not, in fact, in a relationship.
Upon hearing his response, HaHa playfully suggests to Song Ji Hyo and Kim Jong Kook, “Then you should date each other for now, so that you can claim Ji Suk Jin’s entire fortune, and then break up afterwards.”
