Kim Woo Bin Talks About Being Name-Dropped In “Goblin”
In an interview about his recent film “Master,” actor Kim Woo Bin was asked about his feelings regarding being mentioned in the drama “Goblin.”
Previously, Lee Dong Wook‘s character in “Goblin” tries to pick a name for himself. He asks about which names females like and Kim Woo Bin is among the recommendations.
Kim Woo Bin answered, “I was really surprised. I sent a text to [Kim Eun Sook] right away. Wow~ it was really fun. And for my name to be included on top of that. I wrote ‘Fighting!’ to [Kim Eun Sook]. Since my name came up I said, ‘Thank you very much,’ and Kim Eun Sook said, ‘Buy me a meal in return.'”
Kim Eun Sook is the writer of “Goblin” as well as “Heirs” which starred Kim Woo Bin.
Kim Woo Bin further expressed his thankfulness toward Kim Eun Sook and said, “Since we worked together in ‘A Gentleman’s Dignity‘ and ‘Heirs,’ we have kept in touch. I am so thankful because we worked on projects that helped many people get to know the name ‘Kim Woo Bin.’ She’s like a benefactor. I don’t know if there is a way to do this, but I really want to repay her.”
The actor also mentioned his favorite shows these days besides “Goblin.” He said he’s a big fan of “I Live Alone” and “My Ugly Duckling.” Furthermore, he commented that he likes “Running Man” since he has appeared on the show often and they feel like family.
