Kim Jong Kook has expressed his desire to get married soon. During a press conference for the new variety show on KBS, titled Year of the Dragon Club – Childish Bromance, he shared his thoughts about his future.
The show features five celebrities - Jong Kook, Cha Tae Hyun, Jang Hyuk, Hong Kyung Min, and Hong Kyung, who were all born in the year of the dragon. They are known to have been friends for the past 20 years.
Talking about his trip with his Dragon Club friends, he confessed: "I was really jealous of my married friends. I feel like I'm behind on marriage."
"When I meet up with these guys, I ask about marriage or give/receive advice. I think I have good teachers. I want to get married as soon as possible. I'll deliver good news in the near future," he added.
Tae Hyun added: "Kim Jong Kook is the only one still single. Marriage isn't gonna come easy just yet. He's too devoted to his parents and his standards are too high."
