While he is often subject to endless teasing for his rumoured relationship with Letter and Family Outing, Jong Kook's in the best position to help Kwang Soo. of Joseon as a nurse and the love interest of Lee Dong Wook. . When Song Ji Hyo's real-life relationship became public, many fans felt.
Shocked by a female fan who was shedding tears of happiness on stage, Kookie asked if she was "sad", displaying an endearing side of the Commander. His good buddy and fellow Running Man member Lee Kwang Soo may plot to tear off Sparta's nametag on the programme every week, the fans that came wearing their own version of the nametags were dying for the Commander to tear off theirs.
And so he did, for some of the lucky game contestants. He seems SO nice. Jong Kook also briefly shared his desire to have the actress guest star in future episodes of the variety show Running Man at his first press conference in Singapore yesterday. But don't expect anything romantic to happen from it.
While he is often subject to endless teasing for his rumoured relationship with Eun Hye, Jong Kook says he has now "passed the stage of love-lines". It's a very simple time for me now," he explained through a translator. He's aware that fans - especially "Asian fans" identify better with Running Man's 'Sparta-Kook' than 'Kim Jong Kook, the singer', and remains just as grateful for the love and support.
Speaking to the local media in a mixture of Korean and English, the Masters' graduate from Dankook University is just as entertaining in person as he is on TV. The quick-witted Korean was also quite the charmer in his replies and would tickle reporters with his one-line retorts and candid honesty - like how he professed a liking for his affectionate nickname 'Kookie' instead of 'Commander'.
When xinmsn asked if he feels pressured to maintain his toned physique for the show, Jong Kook clarified that he "keeps fit" for personal and health reasons "not for Running Man".
In town for his first Singapore fan-meet, the balladeer who is often packaged as a brute force to be reckoned with on the show also jokingly lamented about the tendencies of being targeted and seen as 'the enemy' by his fellow guests. On top of being seen as an aggressor in the show, Jong Kook is also known for his 'bullying' antics towards Running Man co-star Lee Kwang Soo.

Suzy and Lee Dong Wook reportedly dating! : kpop
I recently just slept over at his place and we work out together, we spend so much time together,' quipped Jong Kook. They're called the Monday Couple because to the public's knowledge they have not dated in real life and are only a couple on Mondays.
Though there are rumors the two have broken up, the couple has still been seen together. Aside from being a variety star and an actress, Song Ji Hyo is also a model. Many consider Frozen Flower to be her biggest movie role to-date.
Before that, she played mostly supporting or antagonist roles, the most famous of which is Jumong. However, Song Ji Hyo also stated that she has not declined any role given to her.
With that in mind, we could also assume she's simply not being offered very many roles. The show got mediocre ratings, between eight and nine percent for the most part.
The Jackal Is Coming had a mediocre box office reception despite the presence of one of the biggest idols in Korea, Kim Jaejoong. Many credit the popularity of Running Man for that and I agree that the show has greatly contributed to her getting noticed by producers, writers, and directors. Running Man is on its fourth year and she is undeniably one of the cornerstones of the show.
Her primary selling point is her partnership with Kang Gary, a rapper and half of the extremely successful duo, LeeSsang. Some are so devoted, they create videos like the one above.
As silly as it may sound because both parties made it clear that the romance is only for the showmany fans felt that Song Ji Hyo had led on Kang Gary. The Monday Couple broke up on the show but has since reconciled. Netizens are always abuzz whenever Song Ji Hyo and Kang Gary display some form of sweetness on the show. Some even speculate that they might have real feelings for each other or are even dating.
In fact, her role in Emergency Man, Woman was the very role of a cute and lovesick woman she swore never to play. The show had some success but she has yet to get a follow-up project.
Could it be that fans are rejecting her partnership with actors because they can only see her with Kang Gary? Could it be that her character in Running Man as the ace and the Monday Girlfriend is so strong that fans are having a hard time seeing her any other way? He started at the bottom, with no label or management company willing to take him in.
To get started, Kang Gary and Gil invested their own money to record their first album and did live concerts to promote themselves because no TV show would pay attention to them.
It was a long haul to success, but one that eventually paid off. In other words, Kang Gary was already successful in his field before Running Man, and the show only helped him become more mainstream. By that time, however, his credibility, skill, and reputation as a rapper and musician had already been solidified. Unconsciously or consciously, Kang Gary was also able to differentiate his career as a musician from his persona as a variety star.
