Nam Ji Hyun opened up about her latest drama, love, and her personality in a pictorial with The Star.
After an ethereal photo shoot, Nam Ji Hyun sat down to talk about her recently-ended SBS drama, “Suspicious Partner.” On how she felt about the production coming to an end, she said, “I still can’t believe it’s over. I don’t think it will sink in until the follow-up drama starts [Editor’s Note: Interview took place before “Into the New World” began airing]. I feel a little dazed and confused.”
When asked if her “Suspicious Partner” character’s love interest Noh Ji Wook (played by Ji Chang Wook) is close to her ideal type, Nam Ji Hyun replied, “I think he is. But because he’s a drama character, he doesn’t feel real, more like a character in a dream. I think he’s a guy that no woman would dislike.” Continuing the topic of love, Nam Ji Hyun opened up about what kind of relationship she’d want to be in and said, “I want to date someone who would be my closest friend, someone I can lean on and someone I can support in return.”
She also expressed an infinite love and passion for acting when she was asked if she’d ever thought about doing anything else. Nam Ji Hyun said, “Acting is something I don’t want to give up. Even if I went looking for something new, I don’t think anything could give me as much joy and a sense of responsibility than acting.”
On what her personality is like, Nam Ji Hyun replied, “I have a lot of curiosity, so I like to do a lot of research into things. For any given topic, I’ll try to approach it in a variety of ways. My friends joke that I’m always observing people every day.”
