Kim Woo Bin is everywhere these days. I can’t go to any Chinese or Korean entertainment site without bumping into news about his latest movie casting, endorsement deal, magazine covers, and now he’s even making the news in the gossip column. Those fans of Woo Bin who weren’t happy about him dating model Yoo Ji An (or those who didn’t want him dating anyone period) can relish in his return to bachelor status. Turns out the low key but public couple quietly broke up about 3 or 4 months ago but their agencies are only confirming the breakup this week. I didn’t care if he was single, dating, married, gay, asexual, or even secretly an alien. I like him because he makes crap roles and dramas better (Heirs) and makes great roles spectacular (Friends 2). He’s just that good of a young actor with equal parts charisma and acting chops.
Most have only one or the other and that’s enough for a lifetime as an actor getting gigs left and right. To have both makes my eyes sparkle when I watch him onscreen. He’s in the pages of the Spring issue of W Korea in a spread that makes me wish for some alterna-universe where he played Kim Tan in Heirs. Or even if the character of Choi Young Do was the one who went to the US to study. The reason being is the W Korea spread brings back memories of the third episode of Heirs when Park Shin Hye‘s character wandered around the desert highways of Cali and ended up at a seedy gas station motel with Lee Min Ho‘s Tan. What could have been electrifying with the whole lost in a remote environs tension ended up jokey and anemic thanks to those two’s low wattage chemistry. Oh what Kim Woo Bin lost in the desert would bring to the world of Heirs. Love these pics, especially the incongruity of how he makes a rose-printed shirt seem chic and manly when he wears it.
I hated his character YD in heirs and lost my liking of him because of that. He need to get back with better role.
btw, Kim bum and MGY also broke up. So sad 🙁
Me too. I hated Choi Young-do so much because he reminded me of the kids who used to bully me back in high school. Those kids ruined 3 years of my life and made me feel like utter crap. I liked his character in the one episode of School 2013 I saw though, couldn’t continue because I find LJS really unwatchable (just my opinion). I still managed to laugh at Young-do’s jokes when he wasn’t being a huge ass and he made me feel 1% Sorry for him when he finally met his mother. So, I guess his charisma is undeniable.
Kim Bum and MGY broke up??? That’s too bad. They were cute.
Is he wearing leather pants in the desert? At least he’s looking fineeeeeeeeeee.
And Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum also broke up… I never got a couple vibe from them but I doubt I’d get a couple vibe from Moon Geun Young with anybody, so there’s that.
Ms. Koala, now that you can actually watch Lee Jong Suk, you should give School 2013 a chance. The bromance of those two… love them.
She called him “eye candy”!! 😉
So I guess this is a great time for k ent to announce any past or recent breakups so as the lessen the reaction since it’s spread around between different couples.
For me, I don’t really care one way or another but I hope both sides will go onto being happier in life.
I didn’t really care about him dating and all, but why am i happy when i hear he broke up? 😛 hahaha
Seems like May is the month of break-up news. Because so far:
1. Yoo In Na and Ji Hyun Woo
2. Kim Bum and Moon Geun Young
3. Kim Woo Bin and Yoo Ji An
Funny that these couples all have being too open in common. It’s a curse.
That`s why i think there is hope for Lee Seunggi and Yoona. You can`t see them anywhere together.
Not to mention mandatory military service is breathing down Seung-gi’s neck as well.
The happiest thing I’ve heard so far”woo bin broke up” oh god what words can be more soothing than this….oh just dying…..watch friends 2 yesterday and I nearly fainted …I was literally shouting the moment he appeared.
Appearances could be decieving and after Kim Bum and MGY’s break up, I get why korean celebrities keep their personal lives under wraps. Can’t say I’m really heart broken upon hearing about KWB’s breakup, but the former’s out-of-the-blue confession just blew up in my face.
Oh no! I hope it wasn’t an acrimonious breakup and that neither of them was too hurt by the end.
On the bright side koala, now that you can stand LJS you should definitely watch him and KWB in School 2013. Now that was chemistry!
Woah ..MGY and Kim Bum broke up???
Kim Bum must have been devastated… He seemed soooo in love with MGY… Sad for him… :((
Was Woo Bin oppa dating anyone!!?? Haven’t noticed at all haha. I’d rather see him as a sexy bachelor where I can drool over….hihi. also he is looking damn fine.
Aww this sucks.
