It’s been belatedly reported that Kim Bum was infected with the norovirus, the highly contagious gut bug.
On February 4, a representative of King Kong Entertainment revealed, “Kim Bum recently suffered from an infection of the nororvirus. As such, he had a hard time filming ‘That Winter, The Wind Blows.’ He’s completely recovered, so there is nothing to worry about now.”
A source within the production team stated, “Our cast and crew are fighting against the cold weather as they film. While Kim Bum wasn’t feeling well, he stayed on site and did all he could to film smoothly. “
In the upcoming series, Kim Bum will take on the role of Jin Sung, professional poker gambler, Oh Soo’s, (Jo In Sung) right hand man. He can be friendly one moment and cold-hearted the next, not to mention that he’s also quite short-tempered.
“That Winter, The Wind Blows” is Song Hye Kyo and Jo In Sung’s comeback piece to dramaland. Song Hye Kyo takes on the role of Oh Young, the sole heiress to a giant conglomerate. She lost both her parents and her eyesight, making her extremely self-protecting and lonely. Jo In Sung plays Oh Soo, a playboy and a gambler who sets his eyes on his next target, Oh Young.
“That Winter, The Wind Blows” will premiere on SBS on February 13, at 9:55PM KST.
