The cast became emotional as Kim Woo-bin overcame cancer and returned healthily.
On tvN’s “Boss By Chance 2,” which aired on March 10th, Kim Woo-bin, Lee Kwang-soo, and Lim Joo-hwan appeared as guests and became staff members of a mart run by Jo In-sung and Cha Tae-hyun in a rural area. The mart has already been running for two days. The guests showed perfect adaptation to the work of the mart.
The guests showed their entertaining ability. Lee Kwang-soo, who served Jo In-sung’s ramyeon to a customer at the snack corner, said, “I really wanted to eat his ramyeon while watching the broadcast, too. I thought I could eat it when I came here, but he didn’t cook it for me,” he complained. In response, customers laughed, saying, “The employee welfare here is not good.”
After the store closed, the two employees and the part-timers relaxed with Korean rice liquor makgeolli. Kim Woo-bin smelled the makgeolli and expressed his disappointment as he could not drink alcohol. Seeing this, Cha Tae-hyun burst into laughter.
Kim Woo-bin shocked Lim Joo-hwan by jokingly asking, “You know how to make such tasty food yet you left all the cooking to Jo In-sung when we went on a trip?” Hearing this, Jo In-sung showed a bitter smile.
The topic of their conversation during the meal was Kim Woo-bin’s return. Kim Woo-bin, who was battling nasopharyngeal cancer, made his comeback appearance at the Blue Dragon Film Awards in 2019 after 2 years and 6 months.
Lee Kwang-soo, who was present at the time, said, “I was touched,” and Lim Joo-hwan added, “I got goosebumps.”
Kim Woo-bin said, “I was really nervous at that moment. It’s been so long and many people were worried about me. I was grateful that the seniors gave me a lot of applause.”
Jo In-sung then asked playfully, “You didn’t expect your comeback project to be a variety show, did you?” and Kim Woo-bin replied, “Yes. I’m wearing a mask, so I don’t know if my grandmother will recognize me.” He then smiled and shouted at the camera, “Grandma, I’m on TV”.
Meanwhile, Kim Woo-bin will work with Kim Hye-ja and Ko Doo-sim in tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Our Blues,” which is scheduled to air in April. He said, “There’s a scene where I appear with Kim Hye-ja and Ko Doo-shim, and as soon as I saw the script, I was so nervous,” and added, “I cried when I saw their acting even though it was just for rehearsals.”
