The nasopharynx cancer is a rare type of head and neck disease located on the upper part of a person’s throat just behind the nose. It is most common among males living in certain regions of East Asia and Africa.

The actor was unaware that he has cancer until he went to the hospital for a check up. Apparently, he’s been experiencing unusual symptoms in his body — only to find out it’s because he has cancer.

After the news was released, his fans from all over the world were devastated:


We can definitely hear many hearts breaking right now!

Fortunately, the disease is only at its early stages so it is treatable. Kim Woo-bin is currently undergoing radiation treatment for it. All his work schedules had been indefinitely put on hold so he can focus on getting better.

And his fans cannot help but send their support, prayers, and love to the actor:






Get well soon, oppa!
