Actor Kim Woo Bin had a movie talk live to promote his upcoming movie 'Master' through Naver on November 28!


During this, he talked about going to the Philippines for filming and not being able to return to Korea because he got entangled with the Criminal Investigation Department!  


SEE ALSO: [OP-ED] What makes a music video?


He revealed, "My real name is Kim Hyun Joong, and someone with the same name was on the run for fraud.  Thankfully, it was resolved within a week.  If I had not gotten help, I supposedly would not have been able to leave for a month. I got all fingertips fingerprinted and went through the whole process of documentation."


He then left a video message for the conman of the same name, saying, "Didn't you do a lot of running away in the end?" making everyone laugh.

    hahahahahaha..the man with same name as kim woo bin surely did a lot of frauds for him to be on the watch list.. thank god woo bin was cleared with all charges and was able to get back to Korea.. I think the ones who handled the case didn't know woo bin's an actor in Korea.. ^_^ i hoped they did some background check also to know who they were about to detain...

    Even though Kim Woo Bin is an actor, he still has to undergo the same procedure. Every one should be treated equal when it comes to the Law.

    yeah I know.. was just making light jokes out of the situation.. hehehe.. but the last part of my comment is not part of the joke though.. yeah everyone is equal but what can they get bad with just a little research.. background checking of every person they're about to question may they be public figure or not.. they have a term in that.. if i'm not mistaken it's profiling.. double checking if the person they're about to detain was the right one or not ^_^ but given that the person that they were running after is a woman and woo bin is a man, profiling is really needed.. ^_^

    i know right.. im from Philippines btw.. but there are circumstance that a criminal might change her appearance right.. so further investigations also is required.. finger printing is for sure the best way to identify a person.. Philippines is not that advance in technology and we have slow investigation process.. thats why maybe it takes a while to confirm woobins identification.. :)
