Ji-hyo’s Dating Rumor with Kim Jong-kook
Song ji-hyo has been rumored several times that she has been dating singer Kim Jong-kook who is also her Running Man fellow member. The rumor started with an article which was only made up of assumptions and opinions. The article explained what had allegedly happened between the two celebrities, where the two were seen too close to be just friends on SBS’ Running Man.
However, the rumor was not true and the article was being considered false by news outlets. Kim Jong-kook and Song Ji-hyo were nothing more than friends and fellow entertainers as they often appeared side-by-side on Running Man. Song Ji-hyo has made it clear that she can never date Kim Jong-kook, mainly because she cannot mix her emotions with someone she is working with. So, the two are just friends and only coworkers on a TV program.
