Nam Sang Mi revealed through the production company “I received the offer to appear in “The Joseon Gunman” and while reading the script, I thought that Soo In resembled me in a lot of ways. After deciding to appear in the drama, there was no need for me to be worried.

Nam Sang Mi spoke about her character, revealing “Jung Soo In is a very knowledgeable and talented noble maiden, but she is a forward thinker. During the enlightenment period, she has a lot of curiosity about the new world, so she does this different actions that are out of the ordinary.”
She continued “If we go by my image that I have built up until now, I would have been cast as a totally different character,” proclaiming that this is her grand acting transformation.
Nam Sang Mi added to the anticipation by stating “I am very worried about Jung Soo In’s growth. She meets Park Yoon Gang (Lee Jun Ki) and falls in love with him, but through enduring this turbulent enlightenment period together, Jung Soo In grows into a powerful woman. She goes through a process of many transformations as she goes from being a girl to a heroine.”
It is rumored that the production company is very satisfied with Nam Sang Mi, who lays out all of her enthusiasm for her character.
A representative of the production company relayed “She has completely become Jung Soo In when her eyes light up full of curiosity and when she steadily reads her lines with her small mouth. Nam Sang Mi and Jung Soo In are just like Decalcomania.”
