It was revealed that the source of rumors about Kim Jong Kook having a wife and child in Los Angeles, US, is none other than his best friend Cha Tae Hyun.
On the December 28th episode of KBS2’s TV show “Problem Child in House”, actor Cha Tae Hyun and actress Kwak Sun Young appeared. The two will be co-starring in the upcoming K-drama “Brain Cooperation”, which is scheduled for release on January 2nd, 2023.
On this day, MC Kim Sook asked Cha Tae Hyun, who is known as Kim Jong Kook‘s best friend, about the rumor that Kim Jong Kook had a wife in LA, saying, “Since you’re here, I really want to ask about that.”
Hearing this, Kim Jong Kook surprised everyone by pointing towards Cha Tae Hyun and revealing that his best friend was the one to start such rumors.
In response, Cha Tae Hyun said, “It is a reasonable doubt. Jong Kook goes to LA a lot. At some point, people are prone to find it suspicious. I think he has a girlfriend over there.”
Then, the actor invoked laughter by joking, “But on another point of view, I often go there with my mother. I guess she also has a wife there.”
Regarding this, Cha Tae Hyun answered proudly, “Since the period is gradually getting longer and longer, I guess that you are coming to see your child. I can’t help but think that.”
Speechless, Kim Jong Kook clarified, “Of course, we are only saying this as a joke, but there are sometimes people who actually believe in it.”
