Kim Jong-kook Speaks Out About His Back Problem Responding to Rumors and Vicious Replies

“When People go out and have fun, or take a rest in bed, I try my best to reduce sleep and live like this.”

Singer Kim Jong-kook’s statement is going viral online. Kim has been receiving vicious replies and messages since he fulfilled the military service by serving as a public service worker. Now, he is receiving hopeful and positive messages from fans.


In 2006, Kim Jong-kook served as a public service worker to fulfill his military service because of a back problem. However, some people suspected him for faking it as he appeared on TV shows and showed great fitness skills.

The suspicion has been around for about 10 years. When he posted a picture of his fit body, which he gained after so much effort, there were people who wrote vicious and negative replies, so he finally spoke out about his thoughts.


On his Instagram, Kim said (under the picture of his spine): “I’ve had this spine since high school. People always ask me how I work out with this spine.. I just tell them I do..cox i gotta make something to support my curved spine.#NeverComplained losers always look for excuses not to believe. They don’t wanna believe. Cmon plz do what you want to do. Anything is possible if u try ur best no matter ur weakness. #Motivation#BPositive#ImpossibleIsNothing”.

This Korean Lip Sync Maestro Has Thousand Faces

Did you know that Saturday Night Live exists in Korea as well? Already in its 8th season, SNL Korea features popular comedians like Shin Dong-yeop and Kim Joon-hyun. Recently, the show invited K-pop girl group TWICE to host the show, reaching the highest Nielsen ratings in current season.

But the true star of SNL Korea is still entitled to Kwon Hyuk-soo. Kwon Hyuk-soo, a Korean actor who also starred in Korean drama series, Lucky Romance, started his acting career as a crew member of SNL Korea Season 2 in 2012.

It was until very recently that he remained as a nameless (ironically, his only known line – if anyone remembers – was the part he says “My name is Kwon Hyuk-soo” at the end of the show’s Weekend Update).

It was when he found his talent in lip syncing that he became a star. Here is a video clip of his most well-known lip sync parody, a scene from Korean sitcom series, High Kick!

If you ask who Kwon Hyuk-soo is in the video, all three of them are him.


He also turns into Sailor Moon with TWICE members…



And of course, he covered Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen as well.



No one knows what he will cover in the next episode, but we sure know that it will well surprise us!
