Nam Joo Hyuk Considers His Next Drama Moves

Following his performance in "Who Are You? - School 2015," Nam Joo Hyuk is considering his next drama role.

In "Who Are You? - School 2015" he played Han Yi An, the lifelong friend of Go Eun Byul, played by Kim So Hyun. He was a loyal friend but, alas, only a second lead and did not get the girl.

"When I first approached the role of Han Yi An, I was glad that such an opportunity arrived at my doorstep but the burden was great and I was really worried," said Nam on Instagram. "Compared to the role I was given, I was lacking so I tried my best but things didn't go the way I imagines they would, which caused a lot of frustration."

They could not have gone that badly, if he is already being offered other roles.

If he takes the role in the family drama "Fancy Seduction," Nam will play Jin Hyung Woo, a smart, funny handsome character. He is the leading female character's first love and one not easily forgotten. But that's no guarantee he will get the girl.

Song Yeong Mok, who wrote "Golden Rainbow" and "May Queen," is the writer for "Fancy Seduction." Kim Sang Hyeob, who directed "Mama - Nothing To Fear" is the drama's director.

"Who Are You? - School 2015" was not Nam Joo Hyuk's first role as he played Park Dae Bak in "the Idle Mermaid."

And "Fancy Seduction" is not the only drama role the model-turned actor has landed in 2015. Nam also has a role in the webtoon-based drama "Cheese In The Trap," which stars Park Hae Jin, Kim Go Eun and Seo Kang Joon.  He will play Kwon Eun Tak, a tall, good-looking guy with a cute way of speaking. Again, he has been cast as the loyal best friend type, so he probably won't get the girl.

"'Cheese in the Trap' is a webtoon that I've always really liked so it's an honor that I even get to be in the drama," said Nam. "I will diligently prepare to show my best efforts."

 "Who Are You? - School 2015" was not first role as he played Park Dae Bak in teh 2014 drama "The Idle Mermaid."

The rookie model-turned actor began his modeling career in 2013 when he walked the runway for Songzio Homme Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Nam was represented by the modeling agency K-Plus, which signed a partnership agreement with YG Entertainment in 2013. The agency is now called YG Plus. Popular actor Cha Seung Won trains the agency's models for acting work. The agency has so far produced a few models-turned-actors, including Lee Sung Kyung, who appeared in "That's Okay, It's Love" and Queen's Flower," and Kang Seung Hyun, who appeared in the web drama "We Broke Up."

"Fancy Seduction" is expected to have an October release date.
