Since his Turbo days, Kim Jong Kook has always been careful about being involved in scandals. Even though he has often been questioned about his relationship with Yoon Eun Hye, Song Ji Hyo and Moon Geun Young, he has never revealed anything at all.
No one would have expected for this sudden revelation because of how tight-lipped he has been for the past 23 years as an artist.
It seems like the shocking day has arrived. In the latest of episode of My Ugly Duckling, the muscly man confessed to his mother about his history with women.
According to Koreaboo, it was a casual conversation about eating habits when Jong Kook spilt,
“Because I ate with my girlfriend every night, she told me that dating me caused her to get fat.”
The Running Man member said that his previous relationship lasted for six years and the one before lasted for seven!
His manager, Kim Kap Jin, quietly asked why did the relationships end to which Jong Kook replied that it was his fault for delaying the proposal.
“I am being punished.
“It’s completely all my fault. I wanted to be perfectly prepared for marriage and creating a family so I would say “just wait a little more, a little more” but eventually, I think my need for perfection caused the breakups.”
Jong Kook has been known to strive endlessly for perfection. However, he has admitted before that he often don’t know when or what exactly that ‘perfection’ is.
In fact, it was such a serious issue with his bodybuilding that he became addicted to going to gym.
Health and muscles became his obsession to the point where he was often exhausted. Not to mention back-to-back shootings for multiple variety shows.
Hopefully Jong Kook can be at ease with his expectations and finally find true happiness.
