[KpopNewsAddicts] Jackie Chan reveals he could’ve married a Korean woman he dated for 8 years on ‘Knee Drop Guru’
Jackie Chan surprised the viewers on ‘Knee Drop Guru‘ by revealing that he could have married a Korean woman that he dated for 8 years.
On February 28th, Jackie Chan guest starred on MBC‘s ‘Knee Drop Guru’ and shared various stories of his life. During one segment, the subject of Jackie when he lived in Korea was brought up.
He shared, “From ages 18 to 20, I lived in Myung Dong, Korea. I wasn’t famous back then and I went to Korea to work as a stunt double. There was a curfew set in place and the only places that were open at 4 am were night clubs. I fell for a woman there and talked to her often.”
He continued, “There weren’t any cell phones back then. I was in Hong Kong and my girlfriend was in Korea, so when I wanted to call I had to go to the telephone company. When I called her, I would say things like ‘honey’, ‘is it cold in Korea?’, and ‘Kiss.’ However, I became busy and didn’t have the money to call so over time we naturally grew apart. If it was easy like it is now to make phone calls, I would’ve married her.”
Meanwhile, Jackie Chan is promoting his new movie ‘Chinese Zodiac‘ where viewers can get a taste of his real action moves.

During those 3 months, Daesung will be providing ‘d-lite’ to fans in 19 cities with a total of 25 performances. Originally, Daesung was scheduled for only 4 dates in Kobe and Tokyo in March, but the concert planners must have grossly underestimated Daesung’s popularity, because they ended up adding an additional 21 concerts in 17 cities because of the high demand.
He’ll be visiting cities such as Nigata, Aomori, Hokkaido, Miyagi, Gigawa, Okayama, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Saga, cities that even Big Bang had never visited before.
