Nam Ji-hyeon Expands Acting Horizon with More Mature Roles

Actress Nam Ji-hyeon was cemented as a household name for her role as a lawyer in the TV series "Suspicious Partner" that drew to a close last week.

Yet despite her name recognition after several successful TV series, she has struggled to shun the image of a child star, which has continued to follow her. "I tried to look more mature for the role with long hair", said Nam, who is still in her early 20s, as she started acting when she was a child.

She first found fame as a child in the TV dramas "East of Eden" and "Giant" but buckled under immense pressure as a middle and high school student until she almost quit acting altogether. Only a change in mindset would revive her career. "I let go of perfectionism, and acting became fun again", Nam said.
