Kim Jong Kook Talks About His Ideal Type Again

Almost every time Kim Jong Kook appears on a talk show he is asked about his ideal type.

On the January 7 episode of "Happy Together" the question came up.

"As far as looks go," he said. "I think I prefer women who look like Yoon Eun Hye. I really like everything about Chae Yeon too, but I had a loveline with Yoon Eun Hye in the past on a program called 'X-Men.'"

The variety show aired in 2005.

He admitted that despite people thinking he lives a glamorous life, he has less than ten phone numbers from female celebrities. One of them is Song Ji Hyo.

"I think Yoon Eun Hye changed her number," he said. "And I haven't been in a relationship for over a year."

It was not the first time he mentioned Yoon Eun Hye in conjunction with his ideal type.

"It would be nice if we had dated," he said when he was asked about their dating rumors on "Healing Camp" in February 2015. "When we were recording I would think of her as my woman. In this context she was my woman. If another man had approached her, I would have felt the need to protect her."

On the same episode he also noted that his ideal woman should not be too thin. He was asked to define his ideal by ranking Yoon Eun Hye and Moon Geun Young in marriageability. He picked Yoon Eun Hye  quickly although he has in the past complimented Moon Geun Young.

That same month Kim staged a social media campaign to try to get Yoon Eun Hye  to appear on "Running Man." Some criticized his effort and he called her to apologize for the notoriety it caused.

Kim complimented Moon Geun Young when he appeared on "One Night Of Entertainment" in November 2012. To answer that night's ideal type question he provided plenty of details.

"I'd like her to be about five-foot-five tall, not skinny and have a round face," said Kim. "She doesn't have to be rich and I prefer someone with big eyes because mine are small."

When the show's host pointed out that his description sounded a lot like Moon Geun Young, Kim complimented the actress. He said he would not mind if she asked him out.

Even Kim's friends are asked about his ideal type. When Jang Hyuk appeared on the KBS program "Entertainment Weekly" in March 2013, he was grilled about Kim Jong Kook's dream woman. What kind of woman would fit the bill?

"She should be able to spend a lot of time at fitness center," said Jang. She should also like chicken breast."

Kim Jong Kook does like high-intensity workouts.

At least two female celebrities have admitted Kim is their ideal type. One is Chinese celebrity announcer Zhou Yun and the other is actress Ye Ji Won.  And Yoon Eun Hye even said he was close to her ideal type. When she was interviewed by High Cut magazine, she was asked to choose her ideal type between Jung Il Woo and Kim Jong Kook.

"Aren't their styles too different," she said. "Il Woo may be disappointed if he hears this but I don't really like younger men. I think Kim Jong Kook would be closer to my type."

Will Kim Jong Kook ever find his ideal type? What do you think?
