Kim Jong Kook Profile

 

Kim Jong Kook

Kim Jong Kook: (born April 25, 1976) is a South Korean singer and TV personality. He was initially part of the Korean duo Turbo, later pursuing a successful career as a solo artist. Apart from being a 3 Daesang Award Winner Singer, he also participates actively in many variety shows including Running Man and Family Outing.

Details: Commander, Sparta(kook). Undeniably the physically strongest  member and most driven to win. He’s also probably the smartest, most clever and observant with uncanny powers of deduction. But if he can’t win by strength, he’s willing to resort to cowardly or weaselly tactics to re-gain an advantage (questionable character, but being of an older generation, he’s more observant of and sensitive to Korean cultural etiquette, and has shown himself to be very magnanimous as well). Other nicknames I would suggest are Detective Kook, Bully Jong Kook and Anger Management Jong Kook. Early on he was often allied with Haha and Gary who he called his “dongsaengs” (little brothers), but the dongsaeng relationship only lasted with Haha.
