Last week, Running Man power agent Kim Jong Kook mentioned his unending crush for actress Yoon Eun Hye. With the fans’ heightened interest for the two, Running Man invited her to join the program.

Kim Jong Kook talked about his ten-year crush for Yoon Eun Hye in an interview on Healing Camp last week. “Eun Hye's been my Ms. Right,” Kim Jong Kook said, “At least when Eun Hye and I filmed X-men together, I thought she was my woman. I wanted to protect her from other men in the program.”

On the TV show X-men, Kim Jong Kook and Yoon Eun Hye  showed numerous romantic scenes while playing games. They are the original reality show couple, preceding Running Man’s Gary and Song Ji Hyo, who are also known as the Monday Couple.

Now Running Man wants her on the show to have Kim Jong Kook reunited with his old love. On Thursday, Korean broadcasting company SBS tweeted, “Let’s summon Yoon Eun Hye to Running Man with 10K RTs!” The tweet has over 30,000 retweets as of this writing.

What does Yoon Eun Hye think about this? Positive, we think. 

"I'm a big fan of Running Man, and would love to join the show one day," Yoon Eun Hye said, although she worries about developing a personality on a reality TV show that would interfere with her potential to portray multiple personalities on films and dramas. “Yoo Jae Suk keeps mentioning my name to Kim Jong Kook (as an inside joke) on Running Man. I’m amazed and thankful that fans still love us as a couple, years after X-men aired,” Yoon Eun Hye said. 

She jokingly added that, if people keep talking about her and Kim Jong Kook, she’s not sure if she’ll ever marry someone. “Who will want to marry me in the future?” Yoon Eun Hye asked, frowning.
