Popular singer and Running Man's strong man, Kim Jong Kook, is on his way to be a special guest at DramaFever's Third Annual DramaFever Awards in NYC, but not before he made a new revelation on the SBS Healing Camp program on February 2. So what did he say about his hope for love and ideal type?

Many Korean stars and celebrities are careful about their relationships for fear of upsetting their fans. However, lately there seems to be a rush to admit secret romances. We recently reported on Lee Min HoPark Min Young, Girls' Generation's Sunny, and even Park Shin Hye. No specific names were mentioned, and fans are sometimes left wondering even more.

Kim Jong Kook didn't exactly make a confession about a secret romance, but here's what happened on Healing Camp on February 2.

Kim has often been teased about his admiration for actress Yoon Eun Hye ever since they were on the X-Man variety show in 2005. He was pretty open about liking Yoon Eun Hye on that show, but now it seems that they've never dated.

He at first said, "It would've been nice if we had dated, right?" and laughed when one of the show's hosts, Sung Yu Ri asked if they had dated. But he then made this interesting admission: "When we were recording, I would think of her as my woman. Within this, if a woman who was coupled up with me was being asked out by another man, I thought that I'd have to protect her." 

See Kim Jong Kook in the latest episode of Running Man:

Host and comedian Kim Jae Dong then asked Kim Jong Kook to select between Sung Yu Ri and Yoon Eun Hye in a round of "Ideal Type World Cup." Kim Jong Kook's face seemed to flush as he laughed. 

Kim Jae Dong didn't leave him off the hook as he noted, "Your face turns red even at the mention of Yoon Eun Hye’s name. You really liked her, didn’t you?" Kimg Jong Kook chose Yoon Eun Hye and explained that Sung Yu Ri was already taken so he couldn't really choose her.

Now comes a really sweet declaration of some sort from Kim Jong Kook.

He said, via the TV program, "I want to tell you thank you. When you're not busy, let's eat together."

Does Yoon Eun Hye know about Kim Jong Kook's feelings and on-air invitation to eat together? We could only hope. They do look nice together, and their personalities seem really compatible. Will someone please call up Yoon Eun Hye? Maybe it's time for her confession.

By the way, tickets are sold out to the exciting DramaFever award event. If you are one of the lucky fans who is attending the special event, please share your experience.
