While Nam Joo Hyuk initially dreamed of becoming a professional basketball player while studying, he had to let this dream go due to an injury. When he moved to Seoul, he won the Top Model contest sponsored by K-Plus and soon after made his debut as a model in 2013.


His acting debut happened in 2014 in Idle Mermaid (also known as Surplus Princess), where he had played a memorable supporting role. However, it wasn't until his portrayal as Han Yi-An in Who Are You: School 2015 that really got him on everyone's radar!

Moreover, he has been recognized by several award-giving bodies such as the Blue Dragon Film Awards and the APAN Star Awards at still a young age, leading us to believe that there is still so much more to come from this dreamy K-drama hunk!
