While Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye, and Choi Jin Hyuk sang for SBS’ The Heirs, Kim Woo Bin did not, and it turns out it was he who turned the offer down.
Kim Woo Bin appeared as a guest on MBC FM4U’s 2o’clock Date with DJ Park Kyung Lim on January 7.
Remembering that he once sang for fans at a fanmeeting, Park Kyung Lim asked Kim Woo Bin to sing a song for the listeners.
Quite bashfully, Kim Woo Bin replied, “I’m not a good singer. When people give me the choice to either sing or dance, I’d rather dance than sing. I don’t even sing in front of really close friends. It’s embarrassing. I don’t really sing when I’m alone either. I just hum enjoyably.”
Park Kyung Lim asked why Kim Woo Bin didn’t participated in The Heirs OST, when so many members of the cast did
Kim Woo Bin confessed that unlike his character in the drama The Heirs, he didn’t have any feelings for Park Shin Hye.
January 7’s broadcast of MBC FM4U’s 2’O Clock Date featured Kim Woo Bin as the guest, who confessed “Out of Park Shin Hye, Krystal and Kim Ji Won, I was the most comfortable with Park Shin Hye. I don’t mean to say that she was like a guy, but she was very comfortable to be with.”
“Park Shin Hye was always full of energy, working hard and taking care of those around her. I felt like she was more of a co-worker than a woman,” continued the actor. “But once the filming started, I would see her as ‘Eun Sang.’”
DJ Park Kyung Rim asked, “Then who was the actress that was most like a girl to you?”
“All of the actresses made the male staff very happy, but Krystal was the most popular of them all

Here are our top 10 moments for episode 5!
Chun Song Yi: You must be crazy.
Do Min Joon: Chun Song Yi -
Chun Song Yi: Shhhh. You shouldn’t talk when in other people’s dreams. Yeah… I was way too lonely, so my body was having a rough time too, which is why I’m dreaming sexy dreams. It must be time for me to get married. The body is honest.
Punk. Come more often and give me your arm pillow from time to time.
Do Min Joon, the doors to our dreams are wide open too
Yet another celebrity has weighed in on Kim Woo Bin′s appearance.
The topic of January 2’s broadcast of JTBC’s Ssulzun was the popularity of supporting actors, with Kim Woo Bin from The Heirs being one of them.
“Many times, the supporting actors have more room for freedom than the main actors,” said Kim Gura. “They can insert dynamic characters into their roles.”
“Kim Woo Bin, for example, has a face like an animal’s. His face has a wild feel to it, which definitely makes him stand out among the others in his age,” continued Kim Gura.
“There is a reason why Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk duo are sought after in the world of commercials,” he said. “They are unique in their own way, for example, Lee Jong Suk is a pretty boy, while Kim Woo Bin has a wild look, which makes their popularity last for a long time
RECAP: FIFTH RECORD Min-joon saves Song-yi from falling overboard, and as he puts her to bed, she pulls him down to her to give him a kiss. She murmurs, “You’ve gone crazy,” but it’s more to herself than to him, believing herself to be dreaming him up. She hushes him from speaking and sighs, “Yeah, I was too lonely all this time and it’s been hard on my body. I’m even dreaming up sexy dreams now. It’s time I married. Hormones are honest.”Drifting off to sleep, Song-yi curls into Min-joon’s coat for warmth—the one he’s wearing, which pulls him even closer to her. Looking completely out of his element (well, even more than he is, for being an alien and all), Min-joon carefully extricates himself. As soon as he exits, he overhears scary hyung Jae-kyung confirming with his secretary that “it” has been completed, without witnesses, and that if not for somebody being greedy, he wouldn’t have had to do this
Lee Bo Young has been having a great year, and she was the undisputed star at yesterday’s 2013 SBS Drama Awards.

Lee Bo Young also walked away with the Producers’ Award and the Top 10 Stars Award.
She was emotional in her acceptance speech, holding back tears as she said, “There were many outstanding nominees tonight so I’ll think of this as an award for the ‘I Hear Your Voice’ team. I never thought I’d be able to win a Daesang, but I got a little greedy since this was such a good drama

In a recent interview with Newsen, Lee Min Ho said “I was in America to film the first four episodes and came back to Korea to film the fifth episode, and that’s when I met Kim Woo Bin for the first time.”
