Singer and broadcaster Kim Jong-kook confessed that he used a seat bus habitually when he was active as a group Turbo.

In KBS 2TV’s ‘The Problem Son in the Rooftop Room’ broadcast on the 11th, broadcaster Jo Hye-ryun appeared as a guest. In particular, MCs Kim Jong-guk and Jo Hye-ryun were from the same ‘Anyang’ and were elementary school alumni, and they had a common denominator: movement.

Jo Hye-ryun said, “I’m from Anyang Girls’ High School, and Kim Jong-guk is from Anyang Shinseong High School.” “There are a lot of muscles in Anyang. There is Kim Jong-guk, me, and Rain (Jung Ji-hoon),” she said, referring to another Anyang native. Then, Kim Jong-guk said about Rain, “I am an international student,” and “I am not from Anyang. Ji Chang-wook was our high school junior.”

Kim Jong-guk and Jo Hye-ryun share a common denominator of being from Anyang.

Jo Hye-ryun also revealed the ‘salted Jong-guk’ aspect of Kim Jong-guk, which he witnessed in person while living in the same area. Previously, Kim Jong-guk gathered a topic for his thrifty spirit in SBS ‘My Little Old Boy’. He released various saving episodes, such as not only washing used wet wipes and using them again, but also not turning on the air conditioner even in the middle of sweaty summer.

About the time, Jo Hye-ryun said, “It’s memorable,” and “I became a celebrity first, and Kim Jong-kook debuted as a turbo. “At first, I was wearing sunglasses, saying that I shouldn’t reveal her face.” Kim Jong-guk, who heard this, said, “It wasn’t mysticism (wearing sunglasses), it was because he was ugly. At that time, he was not the face of a singer.”

It was a time when he was popular but had no money.

Jo Hye-ryun said, “As for how naive Kim Jong-guk has been since then, I’m still a celebrity, so I rode the Abella (vehicle model). But Kim Jong-kook was a turbo and he rode the bus,” she said.

Even Kim Jong-guk used the bus habitually until the beginning of his third album, which was at the peak of his popularity. “I took a seat bus,” he said. “The seat bus was possible as long as it did not get caught by the person sitting next to it. It was popular, but money was scarce. When I took off my sunglasses, (people) didn’t recognize me, and when I wore them, they recognized me.”
