Netizens revisit past on-screen romance between Chaeyeon and Kim Jong Kook


Netizens revisited past on-screen romance between singer Chaeyeon and Kim Jong Kook

On July 19th, a post reminiscing a special friendship between Chaeyeon and Kim Jong Kook gained attention online. Back when Chaeyeon was still a 19-year-old high school student, she was able to meet her then bias 21-year-old Kim Jong Kook on KBS's 'TV date'. The time has passed and Chaeyeon debuted as a singer. The two met again on 'X-Man' but Chaeyeon couldn't talk to Kim Jong Kook about how they have met before. 

2 years have passed and then they got to play an 'Of course' game on 'X-Man'. The first thing Kim Jong Kook said to Chaeyeon was "Jin Sook(Chaeyeon's legal name), long time no see", which caught Chaeyeon by surprise. It turned out Kim Jong Kook remembered her as well, but he didn't bring it up because he was worried Chaeyeon, who was a successful soloist, would feel awkward. 

Netizens reacted: "I thought he was just making fun of her legal name back then. Omg, this is so sweet!" 

"Okay I'm putting my everything on this ship"

"Oh, I'm Yoo Jae Suk now. I completely resonate with him lol"

"Kim Jong Kook is guilty"

"Holy hell"

"Kim Jong Kook you rascal fox"

"If I were her I'll stan him forever from that moment on"

What would you do if you met your bias once before you debuted but he or she remembered you after 10 years?

  1. Chaeyeon
  2. Kim Jong Kook

YJS mentioned on a recent RM episode that they were airing the old episodes of Xman again and that it's very popular. KJK's lovelines were a big part of X-man and he's still being haunted by them 15+ years later. Chayeon even played up that crush when she appeared on running man for their x-man themed episode a few years ago. It was really funny. Then on Happy Together, she announced she was moving on (like KJK, this is your last chance kind of thing). I suppose in an attempt to move on from the image of her one-sided crush. Who knew Xman would make a come back like that? They're even playing Xman type games on current variety shows.
