Nam Ji Hyun Talks About Tackling Her First Lead Role In “Shopping King Louie”
With MBC’s “Shopping King Louie” airing its upcoming first episode, a press conference was held to introduce the drama and answer various questions.
At the press conference Nam Ji Hyun was asked how she feels about starring in her first lead role. She answered, “Since I’m at the time where I’m moving on from being a child actor to an adult actor, I get many questions about how I feel regarding this.”
The actress continued, “When I was a child actor I had to take on the first eight episodes at most, but now I have to take on about 16 episode from beginning to end. At first I thought I would feel a lot of pressure about my first lead role but I became at ease because the director said, ‘Let’s just have fun filming.'”
She concluded, “Now I don’t feel much pressure and I’m enjoying filming. I’m not worrying about the possibility of poor ratings right now.”
“Shopping King Louie” is a romantic comedy drama about a shopping king named Louie (Seo In Guk) who experiences amnesia and meets country bumpkin Go Bok Shil (Nam Ji Hyun). The first episode airs on September 21. Check out the trailer below!
