Before Korean film "Master" hits the theaters in December, Kim Woo Bin revealed what he went through while shooting the film in the Philippines, stating that he did not get to return to Korea immediately due to some anomaly.
According to Allkpop, the Korean actor said he got entangled with the Criminal Investigation Department in the country because of his real name. "My real name is Kim Hyun Joong, and someone with the same name was on the run for fraud," Kim said.
The "Master" star continued, "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."
In June, Kim was spotted in the Philippines for his comeback film "Master." A report from Korean Times stated "The Heirs" star will share the big screen with Lee Byung Hun and Kang Dong Won for the upcoming film.
During his stay in the Philippines, photos of Kim while strolling around the Metro circulated on the internet. He was even spotted in Greenbelt, Makati. Reports claimed the Korean actor filmed "Master" in different areas of the country like Cebu, Bulacan, Binondo and Intramuros.
Kim takes the role of Park Jang Goon in "Master," who will serve as the brain of President Jin played by Lee Byung Hun. Before the Korean film officially hits the theaters, it was displayed during the American Film Market in California from Nov. 2-9.
Watch out for Kim Woo Bin, Lee Byung Hun and Kang Dong Won in "Master" this December in theaters worldwide.
