On July 18th, during a press conference for his new drama “W” Actor Lee Jong Suk spoke about having to compete for the same time slot as his best friend Kim Woo Bin, who is starring in KBS drama “Uncontrollably Fond.”
Lee Jong Suk new drama “W” will premiere on 20th July, 10 pm KST on MBC and will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays while Kim Woo Bin’s drama “Uncontrollably Fond” is currently airing at 9:55 pm KST on KBC Wednesday-Thursday.What seems like an uncomfortable situation was clarified by Lee Jong Suk that there’s no sense of competition between him and his best friend. He said that, “We are known to be best friends and we happen to star in dramas that air at the same time.” Before being cast in “W” Kim Woo Bin had asked him to make a cameo appearance on “Uncontrollably Fond,” but he couldn’t because of the overlapping air time.
He went on to say that the two maintain a symbiotic relationship and rather than competing will cheer each other on and make plans to have dinner together sometime.
The two have been famous for their bromance in “School 2013” and have been close friends off screen too!
We wish them both the very best for their dramas!
