Actress Nam Ji-hyun, who is in her early 20s, impressed viewers of the recently concluded romantic comedy "Shopaholic Louis" in her first starring role.
Since starting her acting career at the age of 10 in a 2004 TV series, Nam has appeared in various dramas, mostly playing younger versions of main characters.
"I was really nervous at first. I felt a huge responsibility as a lead actress. But I told myself that people are attracted to a cheerful personality and just tried to enjoy it and show the things that I can do well," Nam said. "After doing the series, I have more confidence in myself."
"Many people have advised me to make the most of an opportunity and to more actively pursue fame, but I'm in no hurry. The most important thing is to enjoy and love what I can do," she said.
"I want to take a step-by-step approach to achieving my goals as an actress, rather than attempting too many things at once," she added.
