Kim Jaekyung Explains Her Unique Idea For How To Secretly Go On Dates In Public
Rainbow’s Kim Jaekyung revealed some of her methods for secretly dating as well as talked about overcoming difficult times on MBC’s “Radio Star.”
On September 26, Kim Jaekyung appeared as a guest alongside MBC’s “Bad Papa” co-stars Jang Hyuk, Son Yeo Eun, Ha Joon, and Choi Ki Seop.
Kim Jaekyung said, “During Rainbow promotions, our goal was No. 1. But since we couldn’t get No. 1, we had a low sense of accomplishment and low self-confidence and self-esteem. Whenever that happened, I learned a new hobby and that gave me a sense of accomplishment. So now I have many hobbies.”
She added, “Rainbow had many breaks, so I actively encouraged the members to overcome them through hobbies. There are some people who think that I have a lot of money because they see all my hobbies, but I use all of the money that I earn on academy fees. I only live for today.”
Explaining her thoughts behind her lifestyle, she said, “There was a time when I felt the strength of mother nature in Papua New Guinea. Seeing the rain at the time, I thought, ‘I’m happy right now, but why couldn’t I live happily before?’ I then began to live to be happy in the present moment.”
About 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.”
For her second tip, Kim Jaekyung 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.”
Cha Tae Hyun then asked if there was anyone famous among her boyfriends who wore hanbok with her. Kim Jaekyung immediately answered “No,” making the hosts laugh again as Yoon Jong Shin reminded Cha Tae Hyun about the first requirement she’d mentioned.
