Tiger JK: "I Thought Love Was Everlasting"

Renowned rap star Tiger JK and his equally talented wife Yoon Mi Rae have received attention with their bickering on SBS’s “Happy Sundays- Running Man,” which aired on September 4. With the theme of hip-hop, this week’s episode brought in famous rappers and artists such as Dynamic Duo, Simon-D of Supreme Team, and of course Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae.

From the start of the episode, the hip-hop couple began arguing, sparked due to Yoon Mi Rae’s disliking of the attire that Tiger JK chose to wear during the broadcast. Although it was another hot summer day with a lot of humidity, Tiger JK decided to wear a black suit during the broadcast, instantly making his wife angry. Explaining why she was in such a bad mood, she said “I only wore this because you (Tiger JK) told me to.” Furthermore, the uneasiness between the two continued when Yoon Mi Rae commented on another action made by Tiger JK, revealing that “He secretly called our manager and requested that we be on separate teams”, leading audiences and Yoon Mi Rae to ponder on what Tiger JK’s true intentions were.

Sitting in the back seat of a car, the rapper couple ceased to stop with their heated argument, even with Lee Kwang Soo in the passenger’s seat and Yoo Jae Suk driving. Upon hearing his wife’s comments, Tiger JK sighed and said that “I thought love was going to last forever.” Yoon Mi Rae, however, was not done and responded with an equally sharp retort: “Nothing in this world lasts forever.” While all the quarrelling was going on, Lee Kwang Soo and Yoo Jeh Suk had looks of utter awkwardness and confusion on their faces, both staring into each other’s eyes and asking the same question: “What’s going on?” After a few minutes and with complete silence in the car, Gwang Soo chose to break the awkward mood by asking “So… Shall I sing for you guys?” resulting in a burst of laughter from both Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae.
