Actress Nam Ji Hyun, who recently starred in Suspicious Partner, spoke about the pressure that child actors are under as they grow into full-fledged adult actors.
On the July 24 broadcast of KBS Cool FMs Kim Ye Wons Raise the Volume, Nam Ji Hyun appeared as a guest. Nam Ji Hyun, who started off as a child actress, said, When I first started acting, I was a bit confused. It wasnt something that I tried because I really wanted to, and my parents didnt force it on me, either. I started it because I thought it would be a special experience that would be helpful in the future, but it connected to dramas and even movies.
Nam Ji Hyun confessed, I think most child actors go through this. As they become adults, they feel the need to show that theyve grown up. I think thats when they start finding their own color. It really changes a lot based on what path you take.
She said that she went through the same dilemmas. Because my work wasnt something that I chose because I wanted to, I had a lot of second thoughts in middle school and high school about the career itself. I wasnt confident about it, so I thought about it a lot. But when I became an adult, I stopped thinking about it.
She revealed, When I turned 20 years old, the work environment changed a lot. When I went on to university, my personal life changed too, and the environment around me also changed. My thoughts changed, and I accepted new things, and my problems resolved on their own. Time fixed everything.
