One of Jung Il Woo’s celebrity friends is Kim Bum. They met in the set of the sitcom Unstoppable High Kick. On March 13, he completed his military service! Like Ilwoo he has a medical condition, so he completed his service as a civil servant. Some sources say he is suffering of degenerative arthritis due to a great weigh loss he underwent because of the filming the drama “Padam Padam.” Lately, they do not want to disclose the illness but say he inherited it and has to visit the hospital often for treatment.
In this post I will highlight their friendship through the years.

Jung Il woo sent a food truck to Kim Bum’s drama location to show support for his friend. Kim Bum had been taking a break from acting and this was his first drama back. It is called “Tale of the Nine Tailed.” The following photos were captioned: “Woo is here. 1 Day 1 Woo! My friend who sent me is number 1, the best! “
Update: January 8, 2021. Jung Il woo and Kim Bum are two Real Hot Ramen Flower Boys in Ilwoo’s Youtube video:
Such a sweet friendship. May it continue to flourish! Inspired by their love I created this Christmas image in 2017. I daydreamed what it would be like if they spent Christmas together…
Yeah… who needs heaven?!
Kim Bum as I said way up at the beginning of this post just completed his military service. He is soon set to start filming a new drama! It’s called “The Tale of Gumiho”. You can read more about it HERE.
This is probably his most iconic role:
Do you know what it is? That’s correct! Boys over flowers. To finish, this is one of my favorite photos of him… he has a little bad boy look and smirk comparable to Harrison Ford’s.
Well that’s all for now. Come back soon so you don’t miss the continuation of this beautiful friendship!
