In the recent episode of SBS’s My Little Old Boy, which aired on September 6, Kim Jong Kook met up with YouTuber Egg Kim, g.o.d’s Park Joon Hyung, well-known workout buffs.
Kim Jong Kook showed his love for workout, saying, “The reason I go to LA so often is because of the gym.” and excitedly added, “I like the training center for national athletes better than Disneyland.”
He then moved on to the “struggles” he faces with being so athletic. “So Min once told me. Girls’ don’t like this kind of body. I’m not working out to look better for girls. All I need is one woman who likes this body,” he said.
“Then my fans told me. If they say ‘I’m a fan of Kim Jong Kook,’ then people will say ‘Oh, you like that body.’ They said they don’t want to hear that. My fans, they look at me. They like the sincerity and prudent side of the sportsmen,” Kim Jong Kook continued. “Someone asked me, ‘What would you do if your girlfriend asks you to lose the muscle because she doesn’t like your body?’ I said, ‘Then she didn’t love me in the first place.’”
