Film Project on Hold as Kim Woo-bin Treated for Cancer

2017/07/10 | Permalink | Source

Filming of director Choi Dong-hoon's new crime caper "Wiretap" has been postponed to allow Kim Woo-bin, one of the principal cast members, to seek treatment for cancer. Kim is undergoing drug and radiation therapy after being diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer in May.

The film's production company said Friday it would suspend the project, which was scheduled to begin this month, until Kim completes the treatment.

"We are really worried about him, and his health is more important than filming, so we decided to postpone the project", the company said.

In a show of support for their co-star, other cast members including Lee Jung-jae, Kim Eui-sung and Yum Jung-ah agreed with the decision.

The film is about a police unit that wiretaps corporate executives suspected of stock manipulation.
