On a recent episode of MBC’s I Live Alone, Heo Ji Woong revealed how Kim Woo Bin gave him strength following his diagnosis with blood cancer.
Ahead of this reveal, Heo Ji Woong announced that he was diagnosed with cancer last December and completed his treatment this May.
What drew particular attention was when Heo Ji Woong shared messages he received from other people who also fought cancer.
He added that all you have to do is do as the hospital tells you to do and that what gave him the most strength during treatment was the stories of other people who recovered from cancer.
Heo Ji Woong then brought up Kim Woo Bin, who was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer back in 2017.
Kim Woo Bin contacted me during that time and said that he felt the most comforted by stories of how other people got diagnosed and recovered from it. He said that’s why he contacted me.
