News just broke that Korean actor Kim Woo Bin has been diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer. In a statement released by his agency, Sidus HQ, it was said that the actor found out after a recent visit to the hospital.
According to Korea Herald, the agency wrote, “Kim Woo Bin wasn’t feeling good and recently visited a doctor. We found out that he has nasopharyngeal cancer. Fortunately, it wasn’t discovered late, so he has started receiving drug treatment and radiation therapy.”
Woo Bin was supposed to start filming for a new movie in July, but production has been postponed due to his health condition.
CJ Entertainment, the film distributor, said, “Kim Woo Bin’s recovery is the top priority. We’ve negotiated with the production company to postpone the filming until Woo Bin returns to work.”
The 27-year-old actor will be acting alongside Lee Jung Jae in the movie, which is a remake of the Hong Kong blockbuster Overheard. It is unclear when the actor will resume work.
We hope he’ll get the rest he deserves. Get well soon, Woo Bin!
