Actor Kim Woo Bin, who is currently seen in KBS2's Uncontrollably Fond, is not sure about the popularity of his character, Shin Joon Young. The 27-year-old expressed his apprehensions over choosing the romantic comedy series with the viewers.
On 1 August, the actor updated his fan cafe showing concern over disappointing his fans for not portraying "a bright and cheerful character". He said: "I apologize for coming to you so late. In this precious time, when everyone is seeing me as Shin Joon Young, I wanted to leave a message under the title 'This is Shin Joon Young,' but leaving one now, as the drama passes the halfway mark, I'm embarrassed."
Furthermore, expressing his apprehensions the model-turned-actor relayed: "Everyone must have waited a long time for a new drama, and looked forward [to 'Uncontrollably Fond'] all the more for the wait, but I'm worried that I wasn't able to meet expectations. On one hand, I'm sorry about not being able to show a bright and cheerful character." "
However, Woo Bin also talked about positive things on choosing Uncontrollably Fond. "I learned a lot of different emotions through the character Shin Joon Young, and it was a valuable time during which I was able to reflect on a lot of things."
"I wanted to gift everyone with those precious emotions and thoughts that I had, and with warmth. I dare to call it a 'present,' but I hope that when you are watching the final episode, you will have felt at least a little of what I intended," he said.
Uncontrollably Fond airs every Wednesdays and Thursdays on KBS2 at 21:55 KST.
