After 11 years, Song Ji Hyo finally officially opened up about her relationship with Kim Jong Kook

Song Ji Hyo also shared the meaning of Running Man in her life.

In an interview to promote “The Witch’s Diner,” actress Song Ji Hyo shared more about her time with “Running Man” and what the show meant to her. 

“Running Man” is really a part of my life, not just an entertainment program. Joined the show when I was 30 years old, and now I am 41 years old. I’ve spent my entire thirties on the show. I lived as a member of ‘Running Man’ for a quarter of my life.”

“I wish to continue working on ‘Running Man’ with everyone as we are currently. That’s exactly what I want. I’d feel like a piece of my body was missing if I couldn’t participate in ‘Running Man.'”

When talking about her loveline with Kim Jong Kook, Song Ji Hyo candidly opened up about their relationship.

“I was drawn in as well since the members teased him a lot. To be honest, I was a little uncomfortable about the “love-line” concept at first, and I was unsure if it was suitable. I was nervous every time I was teased since I didn’t know how to reply.”

“Now that I’m acclimated to it, we’re more at ease discussing issues like this. I believe the members’ chemistry is excellent, and our recording sessions were enjoyable. I believe we will become closer, but the “loveline” isn’t real.”

Meanwhile, Song Ji Hyo has recently made an eye-catching transformation for her new TVING drama “The Witch’s Diner”! Based on a novel by Goo Sang Hee, “The Witch’s Diner” is a dark fantasy drama about a witch restaurant that sells food that grants wishes in exchange for the customers’ souls. Song Ji Hyo stars as Jo Hee Ra, the restaurant’s owner, and witch, and Nam Ji Hyun stars as her business partner Jin. Chae Jong Hyeop plays Gil Yong, who is the restaurant’s part-time employee.

In contrast to her usual lovable and gentle appearance, Song Ji Hyo skillfully takes on her new role of a witch by creating a mysterious atmosphere with her charismatic gaze and low-pitched voice. Rather than telling a story of simply defining good and evil, the drama takes on a more modern take by exploring the story of a witch living amidst the city.
