On February 20, Elle released a pictorial with actor Nam Joo Hyuk for their March issue. The photo shoot took place in Los Angeles and the actor channeled a darker, more masculine charm for the photos.
In the accompanying interview, Nam Joo Hyuk said, “I know that my looks lean towards a more innocent vibe so, in the future, I’d like to increase my mature and masculine charm.”
The actor expressed his dedication to acting and said, “I ask myself a lot of questions like how can I enjoy acting even more than I do now and how can I convey my sincerity through my acting.”
Nam Joo Hyuk also talked about his past as a model and his future as an actor. He said, “Even up until just two years ago, I was working as a model and I never imagined I would be where I am now. I want to show everyone who I am and I think that, right now, the best way to do that is through acting. So, I will continue to work hard to show a better side of me with acting.”
