Kim Woo Bin to Star in ′Friend 2′
Kim Woo Bin will be appearing on the silver screen with Friend 2.
Friend 2 is the sequel to Friend, a highly successful 2001 film directed by Kwak Kyung Taek. It will be about three men that represent their own generations, and will take place in both 1963 and 2013.
The film has been gathering interest as it will be helmed by the director of the original, and Yoo Oh Sung, the lead of Friend, will again be acting as the lead.
Kim Woo Bin will appear as Sung Hoon, the hidden son of Dong Soo (Jang Dong Gun). Sung Hoon comes to get involved in a series of incidents after meeting Joon Seok (Yoo Oh Sung) in jail. The role was previously turned down by Lee Min Ho.
Kim Woo Bin said about his role, "I′ve watched Friend more than 10 times because I love it so much. I can even recite all the lines of the film. I′m pressured that I′ll be appearing in the sequel to Friend, but I have faith in the director and I aim to learn a lot from the seniors on set."
Friend 2 will confirm its roles and start shooting in April.
