“Running Man” members Kim Jong Kook (김종국) and Song Ji Hyo (송지효) – or as shippers refer them as the “Spartace Couple” – once again sent fans into a frenzy with their adorable sibling-like chemistry!
Last night (Wednesday,13th April), KBS2’s entertainment show “Problem Child in House” dropped the teaser video featuring Jong Kook, who will join the program as a new MC, on its official YouTube channel. Interestingly, Ji Hyo will also appear as his first guest.
In the released teaser, the “One Man” singer opened by saying, “I want to be active and lively (while conducting the show). I enjoy doing things with gusto.” After fellow MC Kim Sook asked him to welcome the first guest, Jong Kook finally went to introduce Ji Hyo. She suddenly got mad at her “Running Man” castmate, saying, “I’ve been waiting for so long at the back!”
The duo continued to show off their close bond on-screen as they playfully bickered with one another. In particular, the preview for the upcoming episode of the variety show gained significant buzz when the “Princess Hours” actress candidly was seen asking Jong Kook, “Oppa, did I ever make your heart flutter before?”, making the hunky celeb embarrassed.
Needless to say, a lot of fans were more than thrilled upon seeing the interaction between Jong Kook and Ji Hyo in the short video. A fan on AllKpop questioned, “How much longer are they going to keep this schtick up?” to which another commentator responded by jokingly saying, “Until he’s too old to keep his ‘stick’ on.”
In case you don’t know, both Jong Kook and Ji Hyo have never been shy about flaunting their deep adoration for each other, especially while appearing on “Running Man” together. As a result, viewers of the popular variety programme have been hoping to see the two stars date in real life.
