Kim JongKook Special Appearance Brings More Roars During the Encorp Strand Mall Grand Opening

You don’t need to go all the way to Greece to meet the Sparta…let the Sparta come to you! Yes, the famous Sparta Kook is back!

For avid fans of the Korean variety show, Running Man, the return of ‘Sparta Kook’, (a nickname notably given to the ‘Ace’ of the show, Kim Jong Kook) to Malaysian soil last Saturday was like a birthday wish come true. The muscular singer graced his way to Encorp Strand Mall, Kota Damansara and made a special guest appearance in conjunction with the grand opening of the mall.



With approximately 1000 fans patiently waiting to welcome him continuously.chant his name, this Running Man ace finally made his appearance on the center stage. Like the song “I Love you more than I did yesterday”, the love and happiness shared between Kim Jong Kook and his fans were definitely more than yesterday when he opened the show with Today More Than Yesterday. He also continued serenading the audience with his other hit ballads “Men Are All Like That” and “One Man”. Three songs from a romantic Kim Jong Kook were not enough to satisfy the audience who had been yearning for his mellifluous voice. In a flash, he transformed himself into a witty and lovable man while cutely dancing to “Loveable”. The increased decibels from the screaming audience were expected, especially when they were witnessing the muscular Sparta swaying his body to a cute choreography.


Despite not feeling well prior to his arrival in Malaysia, Kim Jong Kook allayed the fans’ worries and kept the audience entertained throughout the show. He assured the fans that he was in a better condition now… after all “I am Sparta”, he joked when asked about his body condition. He also promised the fans that he would bring the Running Man cast to film the show in Malaysia in the near future.

From romantic man to a cute shy guy, he displayed them all within the short span of this show. So, what else was missing? He wouldn’t be Kim Jong Kook if he didn’t show you his twist dance! He then wrapped up the show with Twist King, another hit during his time with Turbo. This song not just lifted the hearts of fans but also brought back the nostalgic memories of the man during his early involvement in the music industry.


‘Sparta Kook’ is not just a beast at capturing people and tearing off nametags in Running Man, but this man is amazing and managed to capture the hearts of the audience too.

Located in Kota Damansara, Encorp Stand Mall consists of three levels of retails floor with over 200 shops including TGV Cinemas, Sam’s Grocers CHI Fitness, Yahama Music School and many more. The mall was positioned to be the next destination for families looking for a unique shopping experience, fun dining and entertainment.

Thank you Encorp Strand Mall for the invitation to the grand opening of the mall and the opportunity to cover the event.
