Actor Kim Woo Bin had K-drama fans buzzing with excitement recently after opening an account on Instagram. As of 5:30 p.m. on the 27th, not even 24 hours after joining the social media platform, he already had over 320,000 followers.  

After opening his account on the 26th, Kim posted a black-and-white photo with a simple greeting that read, “Hello. I’m Kim Woo Bin.” 

The photo shows the actor sporting tousled, wavy hair, with his hand nonchalantly cupping the side of his face. He also has an intense look in his eyes, which peer out from between strands of hair. 

Kim’s agency, AM Entertainment, also shared the news via its own Instagram page with a post that read, “We have good news. Today! Finally! Woo Bin opened his official Instagram account. We hope many of you visit his page and interact more intimately with Woo Bin.”

Kim Woo Bin, who has made his return to the world of entertainment, was met by fans rejoicing and welcoming him to the Instagram platform as soon as he opened his account. The explosive increase in his follower count shows the excitement being felt by the young actor’s many fans to connect with Kim through social media.

Kim Woo Bin, who has yet to follow his actress girlfriend Shin Mina on the platform, is currently not following anyone on Instagram. Shin Mina isn’t following her boyfriend yet, either. Although whether the two follow each other on social media or not isn’t all that important, it is something that the couple’s fans are showing a keen interest in. 

In 2017, Kim Woo Bin went on hiatus to focus on receiving treatment after being diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer. 

Kim signaled the end of his hiatus in November of 2019 when he made an appearance at the 40th Blue Dragon Awards as a presenter. He then showed his readiness to resume activities by moving to Shin Mina’s agency, AM Entertainment. Kim Woo Bin is currently filming director Choi Dong Hoon’s newest film, Alien (tentative title).
