The preview for the new episode of MBC’s entertainment program “I Live Alone”, which aired on March 1st, drew attention as it show how Kim Kwang-kyu adapts to the new environment in his new house ‘because it was the first time in his life’ to own one.
In the preview, Kim Kwang-kyu said, “After living in yearly and monthly rented apartments, I earned enough to buy a house for the first time. It took me 56 years to do so”. The revealed house boasts a fantastic view in a luxurious atmosphere, drawing admiration.
Kim Kwang-kyu said, “The whole house was decorated in a simple and comfortable way”, and attracted attention as he put everything the way he likes. In addition, his appearances when exercising and having a celebration drink were also broadcast. It is known that the actor still finds the feeling somewhat awkward during this time as he is still adapting to the new house.
In a broadcast of “I Live Alone”, which aired in May last year, Kim Kwang-kyu said, “The real estate manager told me to buy a house because there was news that housing prices were about to fall. I trust him so I didn’t buy one and waited for a while. However, the housing price has doubled now. This makes me so angry”, adding, “I’m currently living in an apartment in Gangnam, Seoul on monthly rent”.
