Yoon Eun Hye Admits That Her Heart Fluttered On “X-Man” While Portraying A Love-Line With Kim Jong Kook

It was during one specific game!

Yoon Eun Hye recently made a guest appearance on Knowing Bros along with some other early 2000’s stars and ever since her appearance, she has been making headlines. The reason? The former girl group member’s famous love line with Kim Jong Kook from the past became a discussion topic during her time on the JTBC show.

It all began when Kang Ho Dong randomly brought up the cast members’ close friendships with the Running Man member.

Kang Ho Dong: “Everyone here is close with Kim Jong Kook.”

The comedian used that as a hilarious segue into Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Jong Kook’s past on-air love line.

Kang Ho Dong: “Eun Hye, you also had…”

Kang Ho Dong then used the opportunity to reenact perhaps one of the most famous scenes in South Korean variety program history — X-Man‘s ear-covering “Of Course” game tactic formerly used by Kim Jong Kook.

And while the entire studio erupted into laughter after realizing what Kang Ho Dong was transitioning into, Yoon Eun Hye cooly played along with his antics. The actress explained in detail what happened on that very episode of X-Man.

He covered my ears so I couldn’t hear anything and then he said ‘Of Course.’ At the time, it created mass chaos.

While the Knowing Bros studio reminisced of the past moment involving Yoon Eun Hye and Kim Jong Kook, Kang Ho Dong asked the very question that everyone has been wondering.

Even though it’s a variety show, I feel like it could complicate and create confusion within someone’s mind?

— Kang Ho Dong

It was to his question that the actress admitted that her heart fluttered in those moments.

Yeah it did. My heart fluttered. I was so surprised at the time.

Shinhwa member Jun Jin chimed in by sharing that the entire nation erupted into mass chaos after the “Of Course” moment aired on television.

At the time, the entire nation went wild.

Due to the popularity of X-Man and their previous love line, Yoon Eun Hye was asked countless amount of times if she had really dated Kim Jong Kook at the time. It was regarding this that Seo Jang Hoon asked the actress how many times she had approximately been asked that question.

During your lifetime, how many times did you hear this question (did you guys really date?)

— Seo Jang Hoon

Proving her un-aging variety show abilities, Yoon Eun Hye responded with the wittiest response.

Mmm probably as many as Jang Hoon-yi heard the question, ‘you should try playing basketball.’
