Kim Woo Bin on His Conflict with the Costume Director During “Friend 2”

On November 14, Kim Woo Bin appeared with director Kwak Kyung Taek on SBS’s Power FM Radio, “Gong Hyung Jin’s Cine Town.”

When asked if he had ever gotten into trouble with the director, he said that there was some conflict over the costumes.

“It wasn’t that I got into big trouble. Because I used to be a model, I’m pretty ambitious when it comes to what I wear, so there was some friction with the costume director. The director (Kwak Kyung Taek) told me to apologize first, so I did.”

Kwak Kyung Taek said, “I feel that it’s necessary to have that kind of side to oneself. No matter if you’re a rookie, one needs to express his or her opinions. But, different from dramas where each actor has his own costume coordinator, movies have a costume director that controls everything, and it’s necessary to follow that.”

“Friend 2” is the sequel to the 2001 film “Friend,” and is set 17 years after the first movie, when Joon Seok (Yoo Oh Sung), released from prison, runs into the late Dong Su’s (Jang Dong Gun) secret son Sung Hoon (Kim Woo Bin).

The director also talks about Kim Woo Bin’s pros and cons as an actor during the broadcast. Read more about it here!
