Kim Jong Kook Got His Mosquito Voice After Drinking Repellents
Kim Jong Kook got his trademark mosquito voice because...he drank mosquito repellent?
The singer appeared on the November 1 broadcast of KBS2′s Happy Together 3 and opened up on the voice he is teased so much about.
Jung Tae Ho dressed up in the Madam Jung character he dons in Gag Concert, and said to Kim Jong Kook, "Everything about you is great, but I want you to change just one thing. Your voice. Your voice is like a mosquito′s. It′s so much like a mosquito that I sprayed repellent while listening to you sing."
To this Kim Jong Kook said, "There was an incident where I almost died when I was little. I thought some repellent that was in a bottle was a drink, so I drank it all up. My mom told me that my voice thinned after washing out my stomach."
The person who first started to call Kim Jong Kook′s voice a mosquito voice was the show′s MC, Yoo Jae Suk.
Yoo Jae Suk joked, "One time I heard a mosquito buzzing around in the room next to mine, but I soon realized it was Kim Jong Kook singing."
