Kim Jong Kook “Wins” $1 Million USD Bet After Revealing His Clean Doping Test Results
The anticipation is finally over—Kim Jong Kook has officially revealed the results of his 392 doping tests.
The Running Man member was previously accused by Canadian bodybuilder Greg Doucette of using doping enhancements to achieve his fit physique. The Canadian bodybuilder confidently “bet” $1 million USD that Kim Jong Kook’s physique was not natural, which made headlines all over the world.
In an effort to put the rumors to rest, Kim Jong Kook—who has become an icon of health and fitness in South Korea—began to upload videos that served as a journaling process of his doping test journey. And in his most recent YouTube video, he was able to concretely squash all of the previous enhancement allegations that were made against him with the results of his doping tests.
Before revealing the results, Kim Jong Kook shared the entire testing process of what he went through. He first took his viewers to the very day he underwent all 392 tests, which was back on November 13, 2021.
Testing official: “Since it’s 2021, we are only able to do the 2021 version. There are 392 tests.”
Kim Jong Kook: “392, sounds good.”
He also shared some clips of the testing process, which included a precise packaging of Kim Jong Kook’s urine samples.
I think I might be the first ever celebrity in South Korea to do this.

It was following the previous introduction that Kim Jong Kook learned that not even Olympic athletes undergo the 392 doping tests.
Testing official: “[Olympic athletes] don’t undergo the tests that we did.”
Kim Jong Kook: “So I’m taking tests that even Olympic athletes don’t even do?”
Testing official: “Yup. These tests are for people who are competing in ‘In competition.’ These LIMS tests are for people who have been previously caught using doping enhancements.”
After a few minutes of discussing what the LIMS tests are, the testing official and the Running Man member reconvened on December 19 to officially talk about his test results. They first revealed the official report which included his doping code number and the proof of Kim Jong Kook’s urine sample testing.
The results were then revealed, which stated that no steroid usage was detected in Kim Jong Kook’s body!
Based on the results, it is proven that there were no traces of steroid usage in your body.
