Agency sends Kim Woo-bin get well wishes
The post on Instagram read, “We hope you recover quickly and we wish you a happy birthday. We miss you.”
Kim was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer on May 24 and has been undergoing drug and radiation treatment since. Nasopharyngeal cancer occurs in the upper part of the pharynx, located behind the nose and above the throat.
On July 7, the production of director Choi Dong-hoon’s upcoming movie “Wiretap” (working title,) in which Kim has been cast as the protagonist, was stalled until Kim is fully healed. Choi reportedly had Kim in mind during the film’s pre-production stages and was against giving the role to another actor.
