Kim Jong Min must be one of the funniest person alive. Always acting goofy and idiotic, it has won him a legion of fans not just in Korea but globally. Just ask those who have watched Xman, Heroine 6 and Love Letter. He is actually a singer and part of a group called Koyote, can’t believe that right? Classic moments in Love Letter include the Tung Tung couple pairing with Hwang Jung Eum, that was so funny!! And there is also the 6, 7, 8 pairing with Brian and Chun Myung Hoon in Love Letter. Never a dull moment when he appears on the screen. Too bad he would leaving for the army soon for 2 years.
Presenting his quotes that he often uses on variety shows that are so funny
Do you love her?
Do you know what’s the difference between like and love?
If you like a flower, you would pluck it.
If you love a flower, you would water it.
I would be watering it!
Smiles don’t belong to people who are blissful.
Happiness belongs to those who are smiling.
If you smile twice towards the camera,
the camera would film you twice.
(the more times you smile, the more times you will appear on camera meaning)
Jong Min: Are you rich?
Seul Gi: I’m poor!
Jong Min: I don’t want a poor romance, it’s not because it’s a poor romance because of lack of money, but a poor romance is one that doesn’t have romantic memories. I will bring you happy memories!
When you laugh, the whole world would laugh together with you.
When you are crying, you are the only one crying.
I don’t want 2 – 3 years relationship,
I want a thousand year romance.
I will love you till 999 years 12 months 31 days 59 mins 59 secs.
If you only love me for that remaining 1 second,
our thousand year romance will become a reality.
Romance is using sadness as a guarantee to borrow happiness
Pretty guys are to be admired by everybody.
A normal guy is to be admired by you only.
MC: Jong Min is great with quotes, what are you going to say today?
Jong Min: My hard work will not betray me
MC: That’s a good one!
Jong Min: Because I am not talented enough, so I have to work hard!!!
I love you,
so I will give you everything.
Although we are parting,
I will also give parting to you as well.
Jong Min: Where’s that thing? Where did you put it?
Jong Min: Angel wings!
I love Bae Seul Gi very much just like my fingernails,
But alas, my fingernails seems to be growing longer and longer
I am a star, my shine is covered in the day because of the sun’s presence,
but I am always shining, looking at you.
My mum used 20 years to make me become a man from a boy,
but you only used 20 secs to make me become a idiot.
I only know you from now onwards,
How can you not care about me?
If you can’t even safeguard your love,
you have no right to gain the affection of someone.
– Love Letter S1 #7 –
MC: Do you have a girlfriend, Kim Jong Min?
Jong Min: Yes, it’s Han Ji Hye
MC: How far are you willing to go for her? Are you willing to pluck the stars from the sky for her?
Jong Min: YES!
MC: How are you going to do that?
Jong Min: … (Stunned) I will do something else then! Like plucking fruits, I will do my best.
MC: What kind of a fruit is Ji Hye then?
Jong Min: Ginkgo (Used for culinary and medicinal purposes, has a funny taste but is good for the body)
(Everyone is laughing)
Jong Min: (adding on) Cute, strong taste, sweet
MC: Tell us what will you call Ji Hye?
Jong Min: House!
(All the female guests are stunned)
Jong Min: You are my house to me, a place for me to rest!
Do you know why a watch is round?
Because when you reach the end, it will start again.
Let us start from scratch again.
Pain…sad…tired…let me suffer all of this,
you just live in happiness
The best time to confess, is when if you don’t confess your love,
you will feel like you are going to go mad,
and wanting to die,
that kind of feeling.
I love you,
and it’s not because you are the only one,
it’s because I only want to love you
My heart is being bitten, very painful, but yet very sweet…
This heart of mine is only enough to love you only.
(Why is your heart being bitten?)
I only know how to memorise, but I can’t explain.
Juliet loves Romeo,
Chun Hyang loves Mong Ryong,
Mother loves Father,
The dog in our house loves the dog living next door,
Can’t I love you too?
Compared to not knowing you and living for 100 years,
I would rather know you and die now.
(Why Kim Jong Min wants to become a strong person)
Jong Min: I am water.
Ho Dong: I know, he says he is water.
Jong Min: There’s nothing stronger than water, can you cut water?
Seul Gi: You can just freeze it, right?
Jong Min: Right, but it will become hard after that.
Chae Yeon: Ice cubes can be smashed.
Jong Min: They will become water again after they melt.
Eun Jin: Water will evaporate when exposed to heat.
Jong Min: But they will come back down as rain.
Why are you dropping so many things?
Don’t leave your beautifulness on the floor!
Classic line by him to all female guests:
I love everybody~
