Kim Woo Bin has begun working on his upcoming project following last season?s Uncontrollably Fond. The Hallyu star is seemingly keen on moving forward from the issues that plagued the said series, which included low ratings and controversies involving Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae.
The 27-year-old dramatic artist is reportedly busy shooting his fifth movie, titled Master. The film will have him alongside top K-drama actors Lee Byung-hun and Kang Dong-won. Fans can expect it to be shown in cinemas in 2017.
According to HNGN, insiders have pointed out that Woo Bin is among the most popular models-turned-actors in Korea. Because of this, the recent negative publicity that he got involved in will not likely affect Master.
Kim Woo Bin made news last month when he bravely addressed the low ratings of Uncontrollably Fond. He starred in the KBS series as lead character Shin Joon Young, an arrogant celebrity. His love interest was 21-year-old actress Suzy, who played a quirky documentary creator named No Eul.
The show received negative reviews and failed to draw a huge audience share versus rival Wednesday-Thursday k-drama W Two Worlds.
Kim Woo Bin?s official statement
In an official statement posted on his fansite last August, Woo Bin apologized to their disappointed fans.
He also acknowledged many probably had high expectations since KBS promoted the show to be the network?s follow up to the hit k-drama Descendants of the Sun. ?
Lee Min Ho ? Suzy Bae love triangle
Furthermore, Woo Bin also got dragged into a controversy involving his leading lady and her beau.
Ever since they began dating in 2015, Lee Min Ho and Suzy have constantly been hounded by rumors.
Recently, insiders alleged that the Boys Over Flowers actor demanded his girlfriend to leave Uncontrollably Fond. This was supposedly because of her closeness with Woo Bin, which made Min Ho very jealous.
Suzy supposedly defied her boyfriend and chose to still work with Woo Bin. However, some reports claimed that the actress? relationship issues most likely affected the two?s onscreen chemistry, hence the show?s poor ratings and bad reviews.
