Popular actor Kim Woo-bin may soon step down from his position as host of cable music channel Mnet’s “M! CountDown.”

An official with his agency Sidus HQ said on Saturday, “We’re discussing on his quitting the show but nothing at all has been decided on when and how it would happen.”

Kim has been the Thursday show’s sole host since last August but is thinking of leaving the show to focus more on his acting career – possibly start working on a new project in March or April, the official explained.

Kim, 24, started out as a fashion model in 2009 and entered the acting scene two years later through KBS drama special “White Christmas.”

However, he got his big break last year through smash hit SBS drama “The Inheritors” which he starred in alongside actors Lee Min-ho and Park Shin-hye.
