Actor Kim Woo Bin, who is making his comeback after being on a four-year hiatus, can be seen gracing the cover of the newest issue of Esquire magazine.

Esquire unveiled its July issue on the 19th with Kim Woo Bin on the cover, along with a short interview with the actor. 

According to a source from the magazine, Kim looked more natural than ever during the photo shoot, which was done in coordination with luxury Italian watch manufacturer, Panerai. 

Kim revealed during the interview with Esquire Korea: “I talk a lot with the director and the other actors on set in order to make a good movie. These days, it makes me happy to go to set.”

When asked about the secret to being an actor who “bats a thousand” – meaning that all of his films have earned beyond the break-even point – he answered, “I’ve been lucky. You can’t predict audience numbers, regardless of whether a movie is good or bad. I’m thankful that I’ve been lucky enough that no one has lost money.”

In another question about what he believes to be his appeal as an actor, he explained, “There are a lot of beautiful and handsome actors, but I think I have a slightly unique look. That might be the reason why I’ve been cast to play the school bully about five or six times.”
