Kim Jong Kook Opens Up About A Former Girlfriend He Wanted To Marry
During the May 26 broadcast of the SBS reality show, Kim Jong Kook ended up chatting with one of his friends about relationships while taking a drive together.
“What I remember from my breakups… I think I’ve always worked out after breaking up,” the singer said with a laugh. “One time, I went through a breakup late at night, and while listening to the music that I was preparing for my album at the time, I ran up and down the stairs like crazy. I kept running up and down the stairs. After the breakup came the stairs.”
Kim Jong Kook went on to muse, “In love, it’s always the person who’s more in love that suffers.”
The singer then opened up about a past girlfriend whom he had hoped to marry, revealing that he hadn’t been able to find another woman that made him feel the same way since.
“With the woman that I wanted to marry,” recalled Kim Jong Kook, “I had the thought: ‘If I get to marry this woman, I think I’d be so moved that I’d shed tears.’ But since then, no matter whom I imagine myself marrying, I find myself thinking, ‘Would I be that moved by marrying [this person]?’ There hasn’t been anyone like that since.”
With a heavy sigh, he added, “I need to meet a good person.”
