Kim Jong Kook and Yoon Eun Hye were the talk of the town back in the early 2000’s as they portrayed an adorable “couple” on-air for SBS‘s hit variety program, X-Man. Their chemistry and similarities instantly became a hit, as everyone in the nation began wondering if the two were really in a relationship.

Decades later, the two stars have started to make headlines again for their previous on-air love affair and this time, it’s one of Kim Jong Kook’s old interviews that began to resurface.

Going along with the theme, Kang Ho Dong couldn’t help himself but bring up the legendary ear covering “Of Course” game that happened between Kim Jong Kook and actor Lee Min Ki.

During the game, Lee Min Ki-sshi asked if ‘you hated Yoon Eun Hye’ and wow. There’s no way you can act in that type of performance if you’re not dating.

When Kang Ho Dong asked Kim Jong Kook if he had actually dated Yoon Eun Hye at the time, Kim Jong Kook couldn’t help but get flustered. He dodged the question by confessing that during their time as an on-air “couple,” he developed some feelings for the actress.

During our time on the show, we were an on-air couple. Because of that, I think I developed some feelings. I thought to myself, ‘here (on X-Man,) Yoon Eun Hye is my girlfriend.’

— Kim Jong Kook

Kang Ho Dong concluded with another very blunt question — the comedian asked Kim Jong Kook if he ever “regretted not getting together with Yoon Eun Hye?”
