Uncontrollably Fond star Kim Woo Bin has spoken up about allegedly competing with other Hallyu heartthrobs. The actor specifically addressed rumors pitting him against Song Joong Ki and Lee Jong Suk.
The 27-year-old plays the lead character in Uncontrollably Fond alongside Suzy Bae. He is known to be friends with the said actors from ?Descendants of the Sun? and ?W Two Worlds.? His other friends in the industry include Jo In Sung, Lee Kwang Soo, D.O., Cha Tae Hyun and more.
In a recent interview for Elle Korea, Kim Woo Bin said he is often stereotyped as a partyboy. However, he clarified that he actually prefers to spend time quietly at home and drink soju with friends.
“There is a big dining table at In Sung hyung’s house. That’s our hangout spot and we drink teas and chat. I call any of the hyungs when I have time,” he detailed.
Kim Woo Bin also shut down allegations that he and his friends are competing with each other.
“In a way, you might think we get envious of one another since we work in the same field, but it’s not like that at all,? he said. ?I go to them when I receive new scenarios and ask them to monitor it for me. I also share my worries with them.?

Still, the lead star clarified that he did learn a lot of different things while filming the romantic drama. He also said that it was while filming Uncontrollably Fond that he was really able to reflect on many things.
