After it was confirmed that actors Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk are in a relationship, Nam Joo Hyuk’s comments about his ideal type in interviews after the completion of MBC’s “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” are attracting attention.
In a number of interviews from January, Nam Joo Hyuk stated, “Bok Joo is someone who says a lot of encouraging things. I really like a character like Bok Joo,” and, “I’m the type of person who likes someone for a long time. I don’t have a specific ideal type necessarily but I like the character of Kim Bok Joo. I think someone who is in the same field as me…and can become a source of strength for me is my ideal type.”
In response to a question about his ideal type during an interview with “Arirang TV,” the actor said, “Someone who is in sync with me emotionally. Nowadays, I like women who have short hair and sharp features because sometimes they look cute but other times they look intimidating,” revealing his very specific ideal type.
Fans commented, “In the past, Nam Joo Hyuk always picked cute girls as his ideal type so to see this specific of a change in his ideal type must mean that he has a girlfriend,” and “Based on the description of his ideal type, it sounds like Lee Sung Kyung.”
Netizens who heard about the interviews said, “By picking Kim Bok Joo as his ideal type consistently, he was probably hinting at his relationship with Lee Sung Kyung to the public.”
