Kim Jong Kook confesses he was once jealous of best friend Cha Tae Hyun’s success

Kim Jong Kook shared why he was jealous of Cha Tae Hyun when they were young.

Singer Kim Jong Kook made a guest appearance on the December 24th episode of ‘Come To Play’ and shared some entertaining stories about his friends Cha Tae Hyun, Yoo Jae Suk, and Lee Kwang Soo.

Kim Jong Kook stated, “I disliked Cha Tae Hyun way back when he was hugely popular. We worked in different fields, but when he had success with both his acting and singing career I was jealous of him even though we were friends.”

Kim Jong Kook continued, “I actually tasted success first when I debuted as a member of Turbo. Back then when Cha Tae Hyun was still an unknown actor, he was merely an extra in the beginning and in the end. When he got very popular people misunderstood him as having changed into an arrogant and ego driven person.”

Kim Jong Kook explained further saying, “The truth is Cha Tae Hyun is a very free spirited person. Sometimes even though I know everything there’s to know about him I still misunderstand him.”
