Nam Ji Hyun made her acting debut as a child actress in the 2004 series “Say You Love Me.” Since then, she has starred in several dramas from portraying child roles to adult roles.
The actress shared, “I naturally transitioned from being a child actress to accepting adult roles. But I believe, the public still strongly remembers me as a child actress. I thought it was a difficult task to cover it up.”
She also stated that current viewers might not even know that she was a child actress. Teenagers now may not know much about it.
Nam Ji Hyun also shared her connection with Park Eun Bin and Lee Se Young who is just like her that started their careers as child actress. She revealed that she is somewhat connected to Park Eun Bin. They both attended the same university and they also appeared in the MBC drama “Queen Seon Duk.”
She stated, “I’ve only met Park Eun Bin once at school. We worked together when we were young so we didn’t have each other’s contact details. I’m proud to see other child actors shining up until today just like Park Eun Bin and Lee Se Young.”
Nam Ji Hyun also expressed her willingness to work with other child actors and stated, If there will be a chance, it will be fun to have a project with all the former child actors.”
