Announcer Kim Bo-min revealed her memories with her husband – football coach Kim Nam-il.
On May 31st, Kim Bo-min posted on her Instagram two photos along with the caption “I finally opened it. My old Cyworld photo album. There are more than 9,000 photos but I think these are the photos in which two of us look okay”.
One of the photos is a selfie of Kim Nam-il and Kim Bo-min taken 18 years ago. This selfie, which was posted on Kim Bo-min’s Cyworld in 2004, shows the two smiling brightly next to each other. Their youthful faces in this two-shot photo caught the eyes of netizens. The other photo showed Kim Bo-min focusing on taking selfies while Kim Nam-il was looking somewhere.
Kim Bo-min added, “In front of Namsan Coffee vending machine in 2004, he said ‘I, Kim Nam-il, think about Min-ni (Bo-min) a lot, I wonder Min-ni also think of me the same way?’. In 2022, he grilled meat at a charcoal grill meat restaurant and said, ‘Min-ni ah, eat the meat before it burns’.”
Regarding her husband, she explained, “He’s someone who avoids taking pictures, signing autographs, and broadcasts because they make him feel awkward.” Kim Bo-min also sent a message to Kim Nam-il, saying “It’s OK, it’s okay to just think about soccer. But let’s take more photos since all of our memories can only be left in pictures.”
Netizens responded enthusiastically to her post, saying “So heart-fluttering”, “Then and now, you two have not changed much”, “This married couple encourages me to get married”, “You two are so beautiful and cool”, “Aren’t you Na Hee-do and Baek Yi-jin?”, etc.
Kim Bo-min married former footballer Kim Nam-il in 2007 and has a son. The couple and their love story received attention as the two were said to be the real-life version of Na Hee-do (Kim Tae-ri) and Baek Yi-jin (Nam Joo-hyuk) in tvN’s drama “Twenty-five, Twenty-one”, which ended in April.
