Hong Jin Young & Kim Jong Kook get asked about 'some' relationship on 'I Can See Your Voice'

AKP STAFF

Hong Jin Young and Kim Jong Kook were asked about their 'some' relationship on 'I Can See Your Voice'.

As fans know, Hong Jin Young and Kim Jong Kook have been known for their onscreen 'some-mance' through programs like 'Running Man' and 'My Little Old Boy', and they even won the 'Best Couple' award at the '2018 SBS Entertainment Awards'. The two singers met once again on the January 24th episode of Mnet's 'I Can See Your Voice', and they were asked what was going on between them.

Co-hosts Leeteuk and Yoo Se Yoon pointed out that Kim Jong Kook couldn't look at Hong Jin Young in the eyes, and Leeteuk asked, "At our press conference, we said that we wanted to invite Hong Jin Young for sure. Yoo Se Yoon and I welcomed Hong Jin Young, but Kim Jong Kook seemed uncomfortable."

When the guests asked how their 'some' was doing, Kim Jong Kook responded briefly, "I mean, we're both doing fine."

Sometimes having a "relationship" only for broadcast can be fun and profitable for both the shows and the celebrities. KJK was known for them from many of his old shows, although he's tried to move on from it. Monday Couple on Running Man was huge and contributed a lot to the show's popularity. However, sometimes they can get out of hand and interfere with a celebrity's career or personal life because people think it's real or want it to be real and some people hate it with a passion. I think that's what happened here. After they won "best couple," their shows stopped pushing the whole pseudo-relationship thing. Something might have happened that made it uncomfortable for them.

Knowing how much Kim Jong Kook cares about his friends and family he is probably protecting her without talking too much about "relationship". She had many hardships in her career so in his own way now he don't want her to lose some fans/makes fans angry because of him.
