Nam Ji Hyun Talks About Working With D.O. As A Fan Of EXO
Nam Ji Hyun shared, “I think we were able to get along as friends because he’s only two years older than me. My other co-stars from my previous works were a bit older than him. Of course, I was able to get along with them comfortably without any awkwardness, but D.O. and I were especially able to share our troubles and give advice to each other.”
When asked if she had felt pressured about acting with an idol with a huge fan base, the actress replied she hadn’t worried about that. She explained, “I had heard [D.O.] was a great actor, and after seeing his projects, I wondered how he would really act. In fact, I think he was very similar to my expectations. Since I always take a serious attitude and try my best every minute to concentrate on everything I can, I thought I would try harder as a fellow actor rather than be careful of him because he was an idol.”
However, Nam Ji Hyun couldn’t hide her amazement that she was able to act with an EXO member. She commented, “EXO debuted when I was in high school. At that time, there wasn’t anyone who didn’t like them. I was a fan too. Thanks to him, my friends were greatly amazed when I started this drama. I’m an actress as well, but I don’t have many chances to meet idols, so I was fascinated that my co-star would be an EXO member. I told my friends that I’m amazed as well.”
“100 Days My Prince” concluded on October 30 with successful viewer ratings.
