Kim Ki Bum visits SM Entertainment building + reveals he keeps in touch with Super Junior members

Kim Ki Bum visited memorable spots on SBS Plus' 'Two Feet Life.'

'Two Feet Life' is a new road variety show where stars and their family, friends, and colleague walk through a nostalgic location together.

On the December 14 episode, Kim Ki Bum made a variety show appearance for the first time in years. He commented, "I think it's been more than 10 years since I appeared on a variety show. I'm very nervous." 

Kim Ki Bum visited his old hometown, SM Entertainment building, and his old dorm with his friends. 

Before immigrating to the United States at age 11, Kim Ki Bum lived at Dogok-dong. He visited his elementary school and teared up when he met the owner of the school supply shop. 

Next, he visited the apartment he used to live during his SM trainee days. He shared, "I used to live in the same apartment building as Lee Soo Man's parents. Lee Soo Man said he saw me in the parking lot and gave me his business card. And then I started training in Korea."

Kim Ki Bum recalled his Super Junior days and said, "At the time, I lived with Super Junior and TVXQ hyungs," and shared, "Fans used to camp out here and wait for us." 

When asked if he keeps in touch with his former members, Kim Ki Bum answered, "I still talk to Heechul hyung. I've also met Donghae hyung this year. It was nice to see him."

Kim Ki Bum got astonished by how SM Entertainment building changed, commenting, "Look how much SM has changed."

He is still one of the biggest mysteries in kpop to me. He was one of the most well known members of SUJU back the day and was casted as a lead in his own drama and and then all of a sudden just stopped promoting not just with SUJU but in general. He was probably even bigger than Siwon or other actor members of SUJU

Could be because he realized that being an idol is not for him. Probably got stalked around too much. Probably felt sick of having to bring out a different character on-screen because he didnt want the haters to start barking.. List goes on.

Come to think of it, I think Heechul also mentioned that he wanted to quit at the peak of his career, because it was too exhausting. That could be the very reason Kibum left.

Heechul just seems like someone who is a great friend. He's friends with half the Korean entertainment industry, from what everyone says. LOL He's close with a lot of people which has to be hard when he works so much as well. I really respect him for that.

He was one of the apples of my eyes before. I did hope one day he would come back to Suju. Well, seems like he had completely left the thought of returning as singer. I’m just happy he’s back in the small screen! He looks different but definitely looking good as he’s always been❤️

Am I the only one who isn't a fan, like at all? He was barely a member, LITERALLY. Also I won't forget that one time when he was gone for like 6 years and then tried coming back and insisting he was a member, like no it doesn't work that way lol. It must be cool though to go back to old roots and see how something grew! That'll be pretty cool to see.
