I haven’t seen much of Kim Woo Bin lately, that happens when he hasn’t done a K-drama last year in 2014 and I typically watch less K-movies. He was busy filming movies all of 2014 and the first of the movies to premiere was Criminal Designer (The Con Artists/The Technicians) over Christmas break. It was billed as a Thieves-esque caper movie, with a less star-packed cast of course, but using the same heist setting that can be so fun to sit through.
The movie premiered in second place after Hwang Jung Min‘s period movie Ode to My Father, but alarmingly it dropped nearly 50% in the second week to 5th place while Ode retained it’s first place position and increased 16%. I guess the movie won’t have the same Thieves level success but for Kim Woo Bin’s first headlining cinematic role hopefully the reviews have been positive on his acting and screen presence. There’s a new fashion spread that showcases his sleek style to his best advantage shilling for a C-bedding line. Here’s the hoping he does a K-drama in 2015.
