Moon Hee Jun says he was traumatized by Kim Jong Kook calling him 'fatty'

Moon Hee Jun revealed he was incredibly traumatized by Kim Jong Kook calling him "fatty" on a previous episode of 'Running Man'. 

On the January 26th installment of 'Knowing Brothers', Moon Hee Jun featured as a guest and shared he's been dealing with the aftermath of being called "fatty" by well-known fit star Kim Jong Kook. The H.O.T member explained, "I don't think I should appear today. I lived in trauma for the past 2 years because Kim Jong Kook called me 'fatty' on 'Running Man'. They told me the concept of today's episode is 'the pig's sun.'"  

Super Junior's Heechul then said, "You were asked to be a guest because of your Chinese zodiac sign," and Moon Hee Jun responded, "My Chinese zodiac sign is the horse."

In related news, Kim Jong Kook followed up with an apology for his insensitive remark towards Moon Hee Jun.

I know that many people here are going to comment on how he is fat and that the comment wasn't even that bad, but... Heejun has been mercilessly bullied by people for his weight, and it's been going on FOR YEARS. And it's just one of the many things he's been bullied for in general, ever since H.O.T. disbanded, so yeah, it's not surprising he didn't like being called a "fatty" by a fellow celebrity.


If I remember correctly, his weight is a result of health problems, and it fluctuates quite a lot.

Bullshit. I understand you're just saying what you've heard. All weight can be managed with proper diet and an active lifestyle. Hypothyroidism could be difficult to manage, but it's still done.

its interesting that in most society fat shaming is looked down on but it Korea its seems so normal to comment on ones weight. I felt so uncomfortable watching moms diary as Hong Jin-young constantly cut down her sister on camera about her weight. We get it, shes a big girl, but to constantly make remarks on it wont help her lose , it's just going to get her more anxious and depressed which will lead her to more over eating! People need to understand that fat shaming isnt acceptable in any circumstance. If you want to help someone in any situation you need to have some positive reinforcement and encouraging words! People think losing weight is so easy, just stop eating lol sorry , it's not that easy its hard work and dedication to countless hours of planning meals and work outs and then actually seeing them through

Anyway, my point is people need to stop shaming others and instead kjk could have some after the show and offered to help Moon Hee Jun.

I think it's different when Jin Young chastises her sister, because you can tell she does it because she cares. I mean, it may be insensitive, but in her case I don't think it's done with bad intentions.

Wow hilarious. People are attacking him on being fat? Just cause y'all don't want to accept Kim Jong Kook made an insensitive remark? I'm no fan of HOT but it's known that this guy's weight fluctuates. If y'all watched that episode it was hella uncomfortable and KJK was always yelling at his team members to do better. It's funny to one point, but uncomfortable after a point. It's all in the past and over now, but y'all insensitive roaches in the comment section can tone down since clearly none of y'all seem to know the concept of trauma (whether a small or big issue).

Didn't he say on a show that after H.O.T. disbanded that he drank alcohol 5-6 days a week and quit practicing so hard and that caused him to gain weight?

People shouldn't be attacking him for being fat, but read the link akp posted in this article. Kim Jong Kook apologized to him in 2016...so why is he bringing it up again? Yeah, Kim Jong Kook made a mistake...and owned up to it! It's in the past. Moon Hee Jun is just a spoiled baby who loves attention and pity.

Wow, it's linked in the article that the whole team apologized already on 2016 and you guys still trying to hate on it in 2019?

The Knowing Bro's theme for the show is "the pig's sun" for god' sake... They're obviously also low key joke on it.

I noticed sometimes Koreans can be a little too blunt with personal observations, especially about any flaws someone may have. I remember being shocked he called him that when I saw that episode of running man. It's embarrassing enough to be called that in front of the other members, but the whole nation saw it as well. And it is recorded so it will always exist somewhere. Jongkook may have apologized, but that doesn't mean he's going to get over it fast, no matter how long ago it happened. And I think he only apologized after everyone started criticizing him for saying it in the first place. That's why we should be careful about the things we do and say to people, because they may internalize it and it may be hard to let go or get over.

not that it was okay but MHJ was brought onto RM and KJK apologized (even if it was in joking variety fashion) and later admitted that he gets carried away on RM. People need to understand that variety stars are playing characters just like on dramas. Its closer to who they are but it's not the whole picture. Everyone on RM has a role they are expected to fulfill

That is the problem when you famous skinny and then went to fat. People always have the image of you being skinny so they keep on asking you why you became fat like it's a problem. There are plenty of korean celebrity that are fat and nobody cares but that is because when they got famous they were fat already.

I get the feeling that MHJ is just overly sensitive and insecure. I’ve always wondered why Soyul basically dropped off the face of the earth after they got married. Even if you’re not an active celebrity anymore and a busy mom, you could at least let your fans know if you’re ok occasionally. Is it because MHJ needs to be the star in the household?

It's never okay to fat shame someone, and I'm glad KJK formally apologized (BACK IN 2016 WHEN THIS WAS RELEVANT). On that note, I would like to say I absolutely cannot stand this man and his penchant for playing the victim. First, let's go back to the Baby Vox scandal. After dating news with MHJ and Kan Mi Yeon broke out, it literally killed their career. So many death threats and literal terror attacks from rabid HOT fans that they couldn't handle anymore, despite being a top group. Not MHJ's fault..but then he has the gall to go on tv and complain about how Mi yeon ruined his life. Like bruh, nobody terrorized HOT because hello, sexism. Second, what did Mi yeon ever do to him? He implied that she used his name to get fame but think about it. Would someone who received KNIVES in the mail want to relive their scandal? She only ever mentions his name because the poor girl can't go on tv without the hosts mentioning it. In fact he mentions her name just as much, if not more. The Baby Vox breakup is something old school fans to this very day see as a damn shame. These girls had to give up their careers but POOR MOON HEE JUN.

This jerk off claimed that he had suffered SO terribly that his mother doesn't season his soups anymore (Kan mi yeon's last name "kan" is the Korean word for seasoning). Now he brings up KJK out of nowhere. "People call me fatty because KJK hyung called me that. My mother was very upset"...boy does he love running to his mommy about all this issues. KJK apologized back in 2016, so why bring it up again? Just to vilify KJK and once again throw himself a pity party.

Well, he married Soyul, who cares any longer if he's fat. The best vengeance of a fat guy is if he get's a beautiful wife even when he's fat. "Have you seem my wife? She married THIS fat guy"

To me, he is just exaggerating for variety shows. How can someone be traumatized for 2 years when it is easier just to lose weights in 3 months time. So he feels traumatize and yet refuse to put in the effort to lose weight after 2 years? WTF.

its so funny how the same people who argue fervently against bullying when it concerns anyone saying they honestly dont find their favs attractive or think they're ugly, are always defending people's right to call someone else fatty or say they're ugly because they're dark skinned

they're just like "well they ARE dark" or "they ARE fat" and "they need to get used to it"

thats why i just say what i want, because i know that everyone else does. they only roll out the "Be nice and think of others pweshus feewings" guilt trip when its about someone THEY care about

didnt the apology come like 2 years ago and the comment even earlier than that? Dude, you were fat. You got called out on it. Isntead of getting a trauma, try get angry about it and use that passion to lose some weight instead. Crying about it on TV isnt gonna do anything good for you anyways. Make something good out of a terrible situation instead

Only he got chubby because of health issues. This is why I can't stand some of you. You have no idea why someone is over weight. You just assume they are lazy and/or don't exercise. There are many instances where losing weight is impossible and all you can do is try not to get too over weight. So yeah, stop fucking throwing salt on people's wounds. They know they are over weight they see it every day.=, no need for your two cents.

Fuck off pussy. Being overweight is a epidemic that is sweeping the globe due to poor diet and sedentary lifestyle. This fat fuck needed a kick in his ass, kjk could have shown him how to lose weight, but he probably just went and ate his feelings.. ice cream cookies and pies. Dont enable people who's problems become everyone's. If you're a big fatty.. get off your ass and go to the gym or eat real food and not pre packaged bs.
