Eric Nam has shared how he feels slightly worried about his image as the caring and well-mannered “Nation’s Boyfriend.”
On the May 12 broadcast of KBS2TV’s “Happy Together 3,” the singer remains humble when asked about the reason for his skyrocketing popularity. MC Uhm Hyun Kyung immediately says, “There’s no question about it among the female population. His manners are correct,” praising Eric Nam and his gentleman-like behavior.
Regarding his good guy image, Eric Nam confesses he can’t help but feel burdened by it. “Some day I might end up making a mistake, and that’s what I’m afraid of.”
He finally shares when he notices his popularity. “I’m grateful that people recognize me significantly more often than before. In the past, they would look at me and call me Eddy Kim, but now they’re wondering ‘Is he Eric Nam?'”
