Known for his slender limbs, Kim Woo Bin‘s Taiwanese fans have given him the nickname “Long-legged male god.”
On the March 23 episode of MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment Relay,” the actor travelled to Taiwan to have a fan meeting event with his local fans.

A representative of his agency commented, “A staff member in Taiwan said that he [Kim Woo Bin] is called ‘Long-legged male god’ in Taiwan. The amount of fans surprised him, but he made eye contact with the fans and acted in a caring way.”
“He prepared a song for his fans. It is something he feels very unconfident about, so he put a lot of effort into it

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

7th Grade Civil Servant
Joo Won had a busy 2013, and it all started with MBC drama 7th Grade Civil Servant, which ran from January to March this year
With all the husband hullaballoo, sometimes the secondary characters feel a bit too secondary, but then they’ll step to the fore with something really sweet. It’s easy to get caught up in the Oppa-Chilbongie wars (omg you guys are killing me with them), but this drama has a lot more to offer than fanwars and shipping, which is actually why I think it’s doing itself a disservice to be so coy with the “Who is he?” gimmick. Because when the show is all about the small, revealing character moments, it’s totally got my heart.

Lee Min Ho wrote, “I was happy the past four months as Kim Tan. I hope that everyone also gains courage from ‘The Heirs’- forward!” “Forward” was one the phrases that Kim Tan liked to say to Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye) when he was asking her to have courage.

Well the time has come, “The Heirs” has finished. If you want to cry, we’ll have a moment of silence for those going through early withdrawal symptoms. We didn’t get a terrible ending, not everyone got a happy ending, but it wasn’t too open that left me guessing. I don’t like being left guessing after an ending, it feels so unsatisfying. So what were some major moments and some of my favorite scenes from the final week? Let’s find out.

With the conclusion of SBS’ drama “The Heirs, “ viewers could not help notice something ‘extra’ among the last few scenes.
The last episode of the drama, which aired on December 12, included a moment in which Kim Tan, played by Lee Min Ho, envisioned a future scene in which he holds a party at his house. Being of wealth and status, Kim Tan imagined a future involving luxurious food, people, and atmosphere.
However, viewers could not help but notice a beauty amongst the background extras. Shown for a mere three to four seconds, a waitress walking by offering champagne stood out in the background.
Despite the extra’s brief appearance, the internet buzzed wildly about the unknown beauty as people began to take note of her resemblance to actress Kim Tae Hee. The nameless extra’s ability to stand out in the backgrounds raises questions as to whether we can soon expect to see her in a future drama of her own
