Kim Woo Bin received a warm welcome as he made his return after over two years!
The actor has been battling nasopharyngeal cancer since his diagnosis in May 2017 and has been on a hiatus during his recovery. On November 21, he resumed his activities by appearing as a presenter at the 40th Blue Dragon Film Awards.
Kim Woo Bin was met with cheers and applause as he walked on to the stage, and he bowed and greeted everyone. “I’m very nervous,” he said with a laugh. “It’s my first time greeting everyone in a long time, so I worried a lot about what I should say. Rather than anything else, the first thing I want to say is thank you. A few years ago, my health was very poor. But so many people cheered me on and prayed for me so that I could overcome it. I’m able to greet you in good health sooner because of that.”
He added again that he was taking the opportunity of the ceremony to express his thanks to everyone who’d supported him and prayed for him. “I sincerely thank you,” he said and bowed again, receiving another warm round of applause.
