“My scandal with Yoon Eun Hye is not true. The scandal with Yoon Eun Hye is entirely groundless. I hope there is no misunderstanding”, explained Kim Jong Kook after a Golden Fishery preview last week which was reported by the Korean media as him confessing that the scandal was true.
On the 28th at the waiting room of Music Bank, Kim Jong Kook expressed to a reporter, “In the taping of Golden Fishery, (Kang) Ho Dong hyung asked for the real truth behind my scandal with Yoon Eun Hye. At that (time), what I said was obscured and misinterpreted as if I was confessing to the scandal”. He continued, “The love rumor of me and Yoon Eun Hye isn’t true”.
In the preview shown last week (which will be aired tonight), Kim Jong Kook talked officially for the first time about his scandal with Yoon Eun Hye which started from 2005. The media reported the scandal as true afterwards.
Kim Jong Kook explained in detail about the preview, “Ho Dong hyung asked closely about the start of the scandal. ‘You have met up in private, right?’. I actually answered ‘When people live, they may have come across each other somewhere’ but my words ‘When people live…’ was cut short and edited away. It was done to make it look interesting for broadcast. Nevertheless, I realize that it might be wrongdoing on my part, speaking like it’s the truth.”
Kim Jong Kook ended by saying, “In order to make the show look more interesting, I didn’t think about the possible implications that it might had for the other party. It could be that because of my words, I might have created unnecessary worries for Yoon Eun Hye. I wish that I don’t have any other misunderstanding in future just for the fun of broadcast.”

Now is it on or off? I am confused as well. But Yoon Eun Hye has released a statement through her manager, defending Kim Jong Kook, but stopping short of saying anything else. Maybe they do have some links afterall.
