Kim Jong Kook said he′s working very hard to get a girlfriend because he doesn′t have one now, contrary to what rumors may say.
In a recent interview with enews, Kim Jong Kook touched on rumors of his marriage that had started popping up in the financial sector.
He said, "You may know about this, but recently I suffered because of wedding rumors. If I have a girlfriend I want to marry or if I have specific plans to do so, I will open them up to the public and make it clear."
He added, "Since I don′t really live like a celebrity, I′ll announce my marriage neatly when the time comes."
The reason rumors of his marriage spread so quickly was mostly because of his friend Haha′s recent engagement.
Kim Jong Kook said, "I was shocked at first after hearing about Haha′s engagement. After I first heard Haha was getting married, I didn′t realize, but the people around me told me that I couldn′t seem to swallow anything. I felt then a weird feeling I had never felt even when many other friends around me had gotten married."
"I was jealous of how he made the decision to get married," he added. "There are probably marriages that are forced, but I′m jealous of how he met a person that made him decide he wants to marry her."
He then hinted that he currently doesn′t have a girlfriend, saying, "I′ll meet her soon and brighten up."
He also said, "Of course I′m working hard to get married. I ask the people around me to introduce me to people. I recently went on a blind date too. It′s just that I′m so careful because I can′t seem to turn anything down so I′m always dragged around. I think it′ll be hard for me to fall in love at first sight."
Kim Jong Kook recently released his first album in three years with the promotional single Men Are All Like That. He produced his own album this time and showed off his polished vocal skills.
