“My heart hurts and I get worried when one of my family members even catches a cold… My friend is currently going through a difficult time because of a rare disease
I knew about his diagnosis in advance but, now that many others know, I am writing this post to request something [of the public]. They say that if you genuinely have a clear heart and good intentions, you can create a miracle. I ask that you encourage my friend and request that you say things with a warm heart and kind intentions.We always said we would go get a drink together at some point but, because of our busy lives, I was unable to take care of my friend and for that I am very apologetic [to him]. My friend maintains his humor and wit, despite the unfortunate situation he has been handed. I hope that he is able to move forward without losing his smile. Woo Bin, I love you. Hang in there. Let’s continue to smile.”
Born in 1990, Kang Ha Neul and Kim Woo Bin have been friends since they starred in TV drama “The Heirs” in 2014 and later in coming-of-age movie, “Twenty” in 2015.
“This is a statement about Kim Woo Bin’s health issues. We took to this statement to reveal Kim Woo Bin’s condition personally, knowing that many will worry and show concern. While carrying out his various schedules, Kim Woo Bin felt abnormalities in his body and visited a hospital, being diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer. Fortunately, it is still in its early stages, so he has begun receiving drug treatment and radiation therapy. He plans on focusing on his treatment for now before greeting you with a recovered, healthy image, so please wish for his speedy convalescence. We are currently in the stages of adjusting his previously made schedules. We ask for your numerous cheers and encouragements. Thank you.”
Kim Woo Bin was set to start filming new movie, “Wiretap” in July, but the film company confirmed that filming will be pushed back until he regains his health.
