Kim Jaejoong Talks About His Ideal Type During 1st Korean Variety Show Appearance In 10 Years
Kim Jaejoong shared stories about his love life and described his ideal type on TV Chosun’s “Taste of Dating.”
On the June 13 episode, the singer appeared as a special guest and marked his first appearance on a Korean variety show in 10 years.
The MCs welcomed Kim Jaejoong to the show and asked him if he was currently dating. “I’m currently not able to date,” answered Kim Jaejoong. When asked about the last time he dated, he coyly pretended not to remember.
As for his ideal type, he replied, “I honestly don’t really look at appearances. You know how Park Na Rae appears a lot on TV these days? I asked [comedian] Lee Jin Ho if I could meet her personally and Lee Jin Ho said, ‘You may be disappointed if you meet her in person.'” When MC Choi Hwa Jung asked why he wanted to meet the comedienne, Kim Jaejoong answered, “I like charming people.”
As for his thoughts on what “Taste of Dating” is, he stated, “I think the ‘Taste of Dating’ is the taste of lipstick. You kiss and get physically affectionate when you have a partner. You can only taste that when you’re dating.”
While watching footage of a couple on a date, the MCs asked if Kim Jaejoong had ever invited a partner to his space. He answered, “I previously had a grand piano in my home. There are times when I want to play the piano after having a drink. I unintentionally began developing those feelings.”
He added, “I really like cooking for others. I even released a cookbook in the past. I can basically cook any Korean dish.”
“Taste of Dating” airs on Thursdays at 11 p.m. KST.
