On January 5, Kim Jong Kook appeared on the KBS show “Entertainment Weekly” and talked about rumors surrounding his love life.
Kim Jong Kook said, “Cha Tae Hyun is crazy. All of a sudden he was like, ‘Do you know why Kim Jong Kook goes to the United States with his mom? It’s because he has a family there.’ Since he’s such a close friend of mine, people started to misunderstand. It’s definitely not true and I think I have to sue him now.”
Kim Seung Hye then asked if he would publicly reveal he was dating when he did. “I think it’d be right for me to keep it private,” he said. “I would only reveal it if I got engaged to be married. If I didn’t have a girlfriend, I’d say I didn’t, and if I did have a girlfriend, I’d say I didn’t as well.”
The reporter then wondered if he was currently lying when he said he didn’t have a girlfriend, but he firmly denied it.
