Kim Jae-kyung’s Dating News and Ideal Type
In an interview with Newsen, in 2015, Jae-kyung was asked something most idols were asked before, whether or not she had a boyfriend. Jae-kyung elegantly answers, “I’ve always dated in secret. But right now, I really don’t have [a boyfriend]. It’s a period where I want to get married, but also one where I am being careful, so I’m thinking a lot. I’m thinking more because I’m at the age where my friends are getting married and having kids.” This addresses the fact that she has reached the age where she seriously considers the prospect of marriage and that dating should not be considered so lightly.
She then added, “I’d never be in a public relationship. It’s complicated enough with just the man and the woman, but with my job, if we go public with our relationship, there will be a lot of talk about our relationship. I don’t want to make an issue even more unmanageable.” Later, she spoke a little bit about her ideal type, saying, “I like people who I can have a good conversation with and have an opinion. I also like people who love themselves and so can love others, and I hope that he is someone trying to find out more about himself.”
On another variety show, Radio Star, in 2018, Jae-kyung addressed the topic of secretly dating. The idol-actress made everyone laugh when she said, “I thought that I wasn’t at a level where it would become a hot topic even if an article was published.” The hosts joked that it seemed like her first tip was to not become famous. She added that she also told her younger brother, N.Flying’s Jaehyun, “Date a lot while you’re not famous.”
Not only that, but Kim Jae-kyung also added a second tip about good places to date that would not be easily figured out by fans. First explained that she really enjoys traditional Korean things, such as palaces and hanbok (traditional clothing). She said, “One day, I realized that there were only foreigners there, so I came up with the method of wearing hanbok and going to the palace. Since there are many foreigners there wearing fancy hanbok, there isn’t the danger of being noticed.”
Kim Jae-kyung and Her Brother, N.Flying’s Jaehyun
During Kim Jae-kyung’s stint in the variety show Happy Together 3, she spilled a little bit about her relationship with her younger brother, Kim Jae-hyun, who also happens to be an idol under FNC Entertainment and appeared alongside his older sister. Kim Jae-hyun debuted in 2015 with the group N.Flying, as their drummer, who is such a charmer on variety shows. During the talk sessions, the MCs asked him whether or not it was hard for him growing up, having an older sister who is an idol, he responded that his brother-in-law is around 300 people. This seems to be an allusion to the number of boyfriends that his sister has had.
Despite it, Kim Jae-kyung stated that during her time as a trainee she didn’t date much due to the fact that she was on a one-track mind towards the possibility of debuting, having no time to date at all. After debuting though, she has made time to date and enjoyed her life in her 20s. This bleeds to the advice she gives her brother, encouraging him to date secretly as long as he is not caught by his entertainment agency.
After their appearance in Happy Together 3, which was done while Kim Jae-hyun was still a trainee, he has finally debuted, with the full support of his older sister. Kim Jae-kyung briefly appeared in N.Flying’s variety show titled Cheongdamdong 111, which focuses on N.Flying’s debut process as well as other artists under the FNC label. The two were spotted in the show having lunch together as Kim Jae-kyung gives advice and supports her little brother. On his debut, Kim Jae-kyung posted a photo of Kim Jae-hyun’s teaser photo on her Twitter profile to show support.
Kim Jae-kyung’s support and love for her little brother did not end there. During their time promoting as idols, some of their schedules overlapped, like during their time at Idol Star Athletics Championship. The two shared a selfie together that was then uploaded on Kim Jae-kyung’s Twitter, showing off their tight bond with each other. They posed in tandem with peace signs and Vs filling up the screen. Can you imagine a cuter pair of siblings?
