On the August 6 episode of SBS' 'Incarnation,' Kim Hyun Joong was accused of having a strange fetish for ladies' stockings and high school uniforms as he was sometimes spotted at a female costume shop in Japan.
Before he could even explain himself, MC Shin Dong Yup joked, "Let's respect his personal sexual tastes. That's being polite." Another guest star Kim Sung Kyung also added, "You can't help yourself but to have a fetish for objects if you're like Kim Hyun Joong who receives love from everyone."
Kim Hyun Joong laughed as he answered, "It's like I've become that kind of person. We should censor out my face or something."
The star explained that he was spotted by his fans when he went to purchase super heroes costumes (ie Batman) for his collection. Apparently, more scandalous outfits such as school uniforms, police uniforms, and nurse uniforms were right next to the hero outfits. He added, "The fans were more embarrassed than I was, their faces turned red. I thought it would be stranger to explain myself so I acted natural and looked at them, but I didn't purchase them."
