“Recently, memories from my modeling days have been coming to my mind a lot. I want to be ‘actor Nam Yoon Su’ when acting, be natural in variety shows, and show ‘model Nam Yoon Su’ in photo shoots.”

“Nowadays, I have this confidence that I can do anything. I was sort of scared when I first started off as a model as well as when I started acting. Everyone is like that when encountering something new. But as I adjusted to it, I became more confident, causing me to just jump in to challenges.”

“Whether it is an acting project or a photo shoot, I want to challenge myself to try new and different things.”

“It’s sort of awful right now. My looks and way of thinking have changed. It is kind of cringey to say that I am a mature adult, but I am an adult. I have become more manly also.”

“Ever since I started acting, I think my emotions have become more diverse during a photo shoot than when I was just working as a model. I don’t set boundaries between actors and models when I’m shooting a pictorial. When I’m in front of the camera, my priority is for [the photos] to come out well enough to satisfy everyone.”

 “I don’t know about later, but [right now,] I’m more attracted to villainous roles than romantic ones. Is it because I’m the youngest of three brothers?”

“I want to grow more as an actor. I really enjoy acting. Maybe it’s because I didn’t start it for a special occasion, but it’s more interesting than I expected. I want to continue to feel this joy.”
