[TRANS] 161119 Kim Woo Bin 'MASTER' interview with KBS Entertainment Weekly #kimwoobin #kimwoobinmaster (Woobin's part only) 
Q : "What do you feel about shooting with LBH and KDW?"
Woobs : "I'm the second youngest among the casts. It does make me feel burdened because there are many great seniors and I felt the pressure to do the best."
LBH (responds to Woobs' talk) : "I'm the second shortest among the cast!"
Q: "Are you good at doing aegyo?"
Woobs : "I'm not good at aegyo, but I'm good at skinship."
KDW (responds to Woobs' talk) : "He touches a lot~"
Woobs : "I do things like this (touch KDW)."
Q : "He does that a lot in order to get closer to his seniors..."
KDW : "It's not that he does't good at aegyo, he's more to affectionate type."
[Woobs chooses Kang Dong Won as master of knowledge]
Woobs : "KDW knows almost everything. He can't stand his own curiousity. If he doesn't know something he'll try to get the answer right away. So when I ask something and he doesn't know about it he personally look for it and tell me. He's that kind of person."
Q : "If you are left on isolated island, who'd you choose to stay with you?"
[LBH & KDW chooses KWB, while Woobs choose LBH]
Woobs : "Actually there is no any differences if I were to live in that island with only one of them. Because LBH have more living experience, so I chooses him so that I can live wisely."
LBH : "I choose Woobs because I can make use of his tall frame, besides that KWB is really good at taking care people. Live in isolated island may not be that bad after all."
Woobs (as closing commentary) : "Our movie will be released on December. Thank you~"

Star Studded Korean Crime Thriller “Master” Sold to 31 Countries Ahead of Release

By Ella Palileo Asian Movie Pulse

Writer-director Cho Ui-seok’s South Korean crime action thriller Master has been pre-sold to 31 countries even before its local December release.

The KPop Herald reports that CJ Entertainment has sold the film’s distribution rights to international territories such as the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Italy, Thailand, and Singapore among others.

In Master, Filmmaker Cho Ui-seok—known for his crime hits Make it Big (2002), The World of Silence (2006) and Cold Eyes (2013)—directs three of Korea’s biggest actors.

Master is a complex battle between cops and con artists. Lee Byung-hun, who we recently saw in The Age of Shadows (2016) and The Magnificent Seven (2016), plays Jin Hyun—the charming conman and chairman of Won Network. Actor-model Kim Woo Bin, of Friend 2 (2013) and The Con Artists (2014) fame, plays Park Jang-gun—Jin’s faithful right-hand man and Won Network’s tech expert.

When Won Network gets involved in a multibillion-dollar fraud case, Kim Jae-myeong, the team leader of the police intelligent crime unit, must hunt down Jin. Gang Dong-won, known for the blockbusters The Priests (2015) and A Violent Prosecutor (2016), plays the charismatic cop Kim. Uhm Ji-Won as Lieutenant Shin Gemma, Oh Dal-Su as Prosecutor Hwang Myung Joon, and Jin Kyuan as advertising executive Kim Eom Ma, complete the ensemble.
