Actor Kim Woo bin recently talked about his “The Heirs” co-stars Park Shin Hye andf(x)’s Krystal.

On January 7, Kim Woo Bin made a guest appearance on MBC FM4U’s “Park Kyunglim’s 2PM Date”. He shared, “Out of Park Shin Hye, Krystal and Kim Ji Won, I felt most comfortable with Park Shin Hye. It was comfortable to talk to her because she is like a younger sibling to me. I wouldn’t say that I view her as a man would.”

“Park Shin Hye is someone who works extremely hard and has a positive attitude. She also looks after the staff a lot. Rather than a woman, she seems more like a colleague to me. When the cameras were on, she looked at me as though Eunsang was looking at Young Do. I also looked at her as Young Do,” he said.

“Then which female actress seemed more like a woman to you?” asked radio program host Park Kyunglim.

“At the drama filming set, all of them made the male staff members very happy. I think Krystal, however, was the only one who all of the staff members really liked. Whenever Krystal was filming, there was a lot of people gathered. When it was my turn, everyone took restroom breaks,” he said while laughing.

He continued, “Out of all the f(x) members, I would say that Krystal is closest to my ideal type. It’s because we’re friends. The other members I haven’t really had a chance to personally meet, so I’m not close to them.”

Kim Woo Bin went through a lot to be in the position he is right now. In the most recent episode of SBS‘ “Incarnation”, the actor talked about his rookie years.

He said: “When I first came to Seoul to start model work, I felt bad asking for financial support from my parents, so I lived in the sauna for about six months.” He also explained that he did a lot of model work, but his company was going through tough times and did not pay him.

Kim Woo Bin shocked everyone, saying that he used to fill his stomach with water because I didn’t have money to pay for food and snuck into the saunas since he didn’t have any entrance fees.

He shared: “I’m so happy now though. I’m doing things that I wanted to do.”

Woo Bin later explained what gave him strength during these hard times: “My favorite phrase is, ‘God only gives struggles to people who can overcome it.’ I saw it in a book and it helped me out so much.” 

The company Woo Bin used to work with ended up collapsing with the CEO running away with all the money. Luckily, Kim Woo Bin was able to get signed with a better company with trustworthy staff.
