[130227/INTERVIEW/ENG] "I want to be a good person", by Actor Kim Woo Bin
OP Note: I edited this translation for grammar the best I could. If you want to read the original translation just click the the source.
★ Everytime I look at comments on me2day, I get more energy
When I wanted to communicate or tell a story to my fans I didn't know what I had to do, so I asked my agency. They told me to open a me2day account. I asked the PR-team noona how to post and how to check the comments. I just learned those 2 methods. When I have free time, I will post and check the comments. Even though I can't read them all, when I look at the comments, so many people say they like me, and that makes me feel energized. Even if I'm in the middle of working, during break times I read it. Then, I feel re-energized again, so everytime I feel tired I'll find/read it purposely. Thanks for all your support.
I'm not very good at using my smartphone. My phone doesn't really have many applications, also I don't understand the function of it. me2day too was a little difficult at first, but I can use it naturally now. All the posts that I have posted are written by myself. At first, telling my story to others like revealing my diary, it felt so awkward, but that's how I communicate with my fans.
★ Through 'School 2013', me2day friends are also concerned about school violence problems
Actually, when I wake up in the morning, I read some articles in the newspaper. My uncle is a reporter, so it causes me to read the newspaper. However, a lot of articles talked about toxic school violence incidents last year. How serious school violence problems are was making my heart feel bad, so when I received the 'School 2013' synopsis I went for auditions immediately, because I really wanted to participate to cover such school-related realistic problems. I thought it would be great if I could give a little help to solve the problem. While shooting 'School 2013' i uploaded a post onto me2day to my me2day friends, "If you watch the drama with your families and have conversations (about the drama) you can share it with me." Then, they comment with the stories. Looking at those comments, I feel what I was working on seems meaningful, and I get more energy.
Ever since I became interested in social problems, I wondered about problems that Oh Jung Ho (Kwak Jungwook) and Min Ki had. Why they had such thoughts and what big reasons caused them to be like that. It might be because of their neighborhood, but I think "They who received such wounds, if we can understand a little bit of their minds, it might be better." Would another problem appears? If me2day friends and friends around them were more concerned about this, then it would be better. We can understand each other if they tell us more about their thoughts. One day, my teacher called me to the consultation room. It's really uncomfortable. Seriously, if you have problems you have to go there. I wish counseling rooms would be more comfortable, and easily open, so students will talk about their problems. At least if there's no door, you can say "Hi" to your counselor when passing by. When I was in my 3rd year of senior high school my homeroom teacher helped me a lot. He/she understood the minds and hearts of half the students in our class, and also had dialogues often. Whether you're good at studying or not, it will be good for you if you close with all your teachers. I'm still keeping in contact with my teachers, and want to see them again.
★ Go Namsoon and Park Heungsoo, old friends from the beginning
Jongsuk and I were a friends since our modeling activities. Jongsuk's age is the same as mine, and we worked the same shows sometimes, but actually he is my senior. We met and talked often, but we got closer while shooting 'School 2013'. When I played as Park Heung Soo, I really loved Go Nam Soon. I got a good friend, because of School 2013. We're still contacting each other frequently. Because of our tight schedules, we can't meet lately, but we will call or text each other. Because Jongsuk also has a me2day account, when we take a picture together then upload it, we will check each other's account. "Upload it too? why?" "Upload." Even if our faces didn't really show, but we will still check it. I/we take photos as much as possible, pick one of them, then post it, because I want to show my good look to fans. When shooting School 2013, because a lot of them (casts) have me2day too, during our break times they will hold their phone and post on me2day. I think fans and I have a little more communication now, so I want them to like the drama. because we have such connection.

Do we need a Kim Woo Bin tag?
