HaHa commented on how even paparazzi gave up on trying to find a scoop on Kim Jong Kook.
On June 10th broadcast of SBS' 'My Ugly Duckling', HaHa and Yang Se Chan made a surprise appearance on the show to spend some time with their close hyung, Kim Jong Kook.
While eating, HaHa spoke up on how popular Kim Jong Kook was back in the day, "I heard many actresses wanted to date him but rejected everyone. If you heard who they were, you'd be shocked that anyone would reject them." To this Kim Jong Kook simply answered, "I had a girlfriend then."
Continuing their conversation, HaHa expressed his desire of wanting to see Kim Jong Kook go out more and date. "Please stop going to the gym on your birthdays. Apparently, Dispatch followed him but eventually gave up and left. There's nothing to catch - his schedule is going to the gym, office, work, gym, office, work - after following him for months, they couldn't get anything." Kim Jong Kook added, "I used to live in Anyang so apparently they just wasted gas following me around."
