Kim Jong Kook (but he will always be Kookie to us) is a South Korean singer, actor and variety star. Depending on who you ask and how old you are, he’s either best known for being a member of K-Pop group Turbo, or a variety star standout in the now defunct Family Outing or the always great Running Man.
Kim Jong Kook and I are a lot alike. Well, aside from the fact that he’s older, successful, buff, a better person and we look nothing like each other. Even his voice, which is almost comically high as a singer compared to his imposing physique, contrasts with my deep mumble. So, why the comparison? One only needs to watch Running Man to see that in a show where Kim Jong Kook is more physically fit and able (and often more cunning) than nearly every guest and regular cast member, his one weakness is pretty. Pretty knocks him dead. He is incapable of saying no to it (aside from Ji Hyo who is the exception to everything) and he gets incredibly flustered when past romantic rumors of his are brought up. It’s pretty adorable. And so is Kookie. Behind the insanely strong, athletic, Commander Kook is the soul of a romantic. On second thought, maybe we just have nothing in common. Without further ado:
Kim Jong Kook is so beef cake that his beef cakes have beef cake.
Kim Jong Kook is so charismatic that the pied piper follows him.
Kim Jong Kook is so cute that small animals flock to him to hear his song.
Kim Jong Kook is so cunning that velociraptors learn their attack patterns from him.
Kim Jong Kook is so buff that when Superman laid eyes on him, he immediately enrolled at a gym.
