Q: Oh! This is ludicrous statement. Don’t have anything. You even do an aegyo to a man…
WB: Because it’s really fun when I come to filming site. Because it’s fun, that kind of images will come right? But, ‘I have so much cuteness’, I never say something like that on television to show it. I can’t do something like that through words. Instead, I love to show it by hug or skinship. In conclusion, I don’t have cuteness. I like doing skinship.
Q: Someone who like to doing skinship with people has a really warm heart right?
WB: Yes. Really have so much. I like people there and I like drinking alcohol with them. Because I can talk with them. Although I don’t really good at drinking but I like them. Usually, I can drink one and a half bottle of soju. But because I can’t drink alcohol for a long time. My drinking capacity is until at that limit, and it’s fun. Nowadays, I really don’t have a chance to drink…
Q: After listening to your story, you just do so many works. It’s sad that your youth passed, right?
WB: I can’t help it but keep repeating the same schedule for a whole year. So, if I don’t have a schedule from one day until the following day, I will go to drink. In a spare day, there are friends who always can be asked to go out with. Until morning come we drink. But it’s really rare to do something like that…
Q: Don’t you wanna go out?
WB: Of course I wanna go out. I wanna drink until morning comes too. But now I have to work to appreciate the love I got. To thank them. Thank you so much…

Q: Although he’s rebellious. Young-do is sweet.
WB: KES writer really wrote Young-do’s character well. He has a pure image inside. He even called as ‘Elementary student’. Thank you so much. I will not forget Eun-hye (I wonder the reporter wrote a wrong name or not since I don’t know who is Eun-hye, maybe Woobin wanna say Eun-sang or Eun-seok, but I doubt if he said Eun-seok, the writer, since he didn’t put .writer-nim’)…
Q: Although it’s sad to send Young-do off, but now you are start filming The Technicians right? Except actor CHS will come as a cameo, in second meeting you really in that film’s actor list, while in first meeting your name just come out.
WB: Yes it is. Really thank you. Now for the sake of becoming a hit movie, a ritual is hold. Honestly, it’s not a beginning of the filming. It’s just because there’s no one that can be reach, so everyone sit in one place, feed, and becomes have great responsibility to make it good. The movie will start filming in the beginning of March. I’m preparing for it hard now….
Q: It will come out well. You’re the lead actor.
WB: First, I will put my best effort. It can be not good too. Hahahaha
Q: It’s not actor Kim Woo-bin, but Kim Hyun-joong, what kind of person you are? If I give you 3 keywords that express your confidence?
WB: Oh, what should it be? (Manager who heard it said ‘how about charisma?’ suddenly Woobin said ‘no’) Model, actor, dinosaur. There are many people who said I resemble with dinosaur, and after I look it, it becomes more resemble. (laugh) Thank to director too, who likes me. There are many flower boys, but because I’m more special than the other, has a ‘manly’ side, they saw it from me….
Q: I agree. Manly side. Uncommon actor of 20 generation…
WB: There are many actors, but I don’t know well. It’s dangerous question. Hahahaha….
Q: Lately, what kind of deep impression book that you read? As for me, I recommend (Love a little more than tomorrow) and (No, We are sorry) to the readers.
WB: I can’t read lately. I only read The Technicians script…
Q: You seem like study very hard.
WB: Of course I should study. Since I don’t have anything, I should put an effort…

Part 5 next!
Q: During interview, this kind of question that I intend to ask you is boring, but still. You think that because actor Lee Jongsuk who worked together during School 2013, today’s Kim Woobin is now here.
WB: Aaaa~~ Jongsukie. It’s really excited if I talk about Jongsuk. I guess Jongsuk talked about me so much, I’m the one who should thank him. Time that can be repeated once again comes.
Q: Then, should we try?? For Kim Woobin, Lee Jongsuk is? As a reference, Lee Jongsuk did a cover for December issue. That time Woobin ssi did a harmful scene that wasn’t easy to act. As a friend, he said he was envy with you.
WB: Is it a praise?? Jongsukie is always a thankful friend. School 2013 received so much love but if Jongsuk wasn’t on that drama, I think I couldn’t do it. If Jongsuk wasn’t there, I also couldn’t imagine Park Heung-soo that can be seen on a screen. I got so much help from Jongsuk. Since we had become friend, it became more comfortable. Thanks to Jongsuk, I think now I can get so much love. Reporters sometime wrote that we are rival, but when that kind of article come out I feel so sorry. Jongsuk for me forever sunbae. He started modeling and acting earlier. Instead of rival, I like ‘friend’ word better.
Q: Same heart, a friend that can discuss about work together. This kind of relationship is hard to find, but I’m envy.
WB: Of course. Although this kind of friend is hard to find, but while working it becomes more ,closer. Just-looking-at-each-other-eyes-then-you—will-know relationship. There are the same things each other, there are also many different things, so I think we match to each other.
Q: I agree with a praise that Lee Jongsuk ssi gave to you. I watched Friend 2, but I just only looked at you. You are the best one who fit well with wild character among all actors.
WB: It’s because an excellent director, I only have a spoonful effort. It’s also because many seniors helped us. There were many a good actors, but of course if you just saw me, that kind of reaction would come.
Q: You played a gangster’s murder well.
WB: I really wanna try a murder role. If I got a chance I wanna show it. Because that kind of role is hard it’s not I will do it now, I wanna show various role. Now I just wanna practice and if the preparation is done I wanna show a good image…
Q: Then, what kind of various role that you wanna try during this time?
WB: Because my rebellious character is really strong, I did many rebellion acting. Of course I have the other work too, but it’s not enough. Hehehe. But I also wanna show various image in my heart. I did different things, but people who saw it will give the same love generally, by rebellious character, the coming work…

Part 4 next!
Q: Honestly, your face is suit well with this generation. Hahahah..
WB: It’s the first time. When the president of my agency saw me he told me like that. I should work hard to build a solid foundation and accumulate a valuable experiences. When the opportunity arises, I can show them who is ‘Kim Woo-bin’. But honestly, when I think it again I just want to thank that people like and support me in a short time. Since I don’t wanna disappointed my fans, I’m learning new things.
Q: What kind of new thing it is?
WB: Even if it’s just a little, I should not lazy. It’s should be a effortful thing. If I have a spare time I will intentionally find another things to do for my own’s sake. Until I can improve myself…
Q: Such a great effort. But lately, Kim Woobin’s searching engine is about your Senior High School. When Senior High School time you can discovered on collage’s gate brochures or letters. (Since 1st year in Jeonju Jeon-il Senior High School, he was a passionate student a part of Daegu, Daekyung model academy and was on their homepage gate. After that netizen started to recognize him)
WB: Eiyyyy~~~No! I really wanna do modelling. Back then I was so urgent, run to the only my dream, model. If I went to a fashion show, there were so many people who had good proportion and who born with it. When I saw them, since I wasn’t the one who born with it, I just should put an effort. I didn’t know it be good or not but since debut time even I just do a few show, I should walking in a different way than other people. I also practised a pose a lot.
Q: I saw earlier, there isn’t a same pose. I was so surprised..
WB: Because photographer helped me, it will be looked more like that…
Part 3 Up Next!
Thanks Sri Damayanti (@Soieya) for translating!
Q: Everyone went crazy after knowing you’ll do a photoshoot for us. What is the effect you have on woman?
WB: Maybe it’s KES writer’s magic. Thanks to The Heirs, even it’s ended but I become busier. When I was filming that drama, I just had two schedules, now 4 or 5. I’m working hard with a thankful heart. But I also can sleep. Back then when I was filming there wasn’t time to rest, now I sleep 5 or 6 hours.
Q: You come in wearing all black clothes. When Spring comes, do you like to wear clothes with flower pattern or beautiful colours too?
WB: It’s not I don’t like it. I just like clothes that suit me. I don’t wear just branded clothes. Although I almost wear all black clothes in normal days like now, but stylist hyung’s advice is great. Because we do shopping together. Before I buy anything, I will ask him first. Since my body is big, clothes I got from sponsors are too small. So, I buy clothes that I can wear when I work. Stylist hyung doesn’t like me to exercise. He said my clothes won’t fit in my body. (laugh)
Q: Today’s photoshoot concept is Kim Woobin’s bloody flower of devil springs. Devilishness Kim Woobin, how is it?
WB: It’s good. I really should be like that. (laugh)
Q: Now many girls fall for you. In 2011, you debuted with White Christmas that brought you to this busiest day. Do you ever think ‘I will be a great one’ from the first?
WB: I always think positively. Although I read a book called Secret when I was 20 years old, but when I saw the content, I wasn’t doubt about it. Just think a good one, then like a miracle, one way will comes. Since I was child I always practice like that…
