Actor Kim Woo Bin was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer in May 2017 and has since halted all activities to focus on his treatment.
At the time, Kim Woo Bin was preparing to star in the film, Wiretapping, which was ultimately delayed due to the actor’s health.
In December 2017, the actor wrote a hand-written letter to his fans, updating them on his treatments and conditions and promising them to return one day in a healthy condition.
I’ll return one day to greet everyone, healthily, as if nothing had happened. I thank you and thank you again. I love you. My WooriBins.

- “I have to say, I was a little excited after hearing about the comeback. Although the facts are not completely clear, health is always the greatest priority so I will continue to support you silently and hope that you will be able to recover quickly and become healthier than anyone else.”
