If you've seen the first episode of new K-Drama Start-Up, then it's highly likely handsome Korean teen star Nam Da-reum has caught your attention! Why wouldn't he? He's not only good-looking, he acts well, too!


In Start-Up, he plays the young version of actor Kim Seon-ho's Han Ji-pyeong. The character is an orphan, who has a flair for investments, a talent and skill that would help him succeed later on in life. 


Now 18, Nam Da-reum has been acting since he was seven years old, debuting with a stint on the widely popular and classic K-drama Boys Over Flowers back in 2009. 


Throughout his career, he has played the young versions of several top Korean actors such as Lee Jong-suk, who served as his older counterpart in two K-dramas (Pinocchio and While You Were Sleeping) and one film (No Breathing).
