Nam Joo Hyuk will continue his busy acting career in 2020.
Attention is drawn to the packed schedules for Nam Joo Hyuk, who will return with various genres and characters. Starting with Netflix original series The School Nurse Files, which will be released on Sept. 25, he will greet fans through the new tvN drama Start-Up, set to premiere on Oct. 17. He has also finished filming two new films, Josee (literal title) and Remember (literal title).
First, the actor will come back with a new drama about a year after The Light in Your Eyes. The Netflix original series The School Nurse Files is a cheerful fantasy series about school nurse Ahn Eun Young, who has the ability to see “jelly” that no one can see, coming upon an unusual mystery at her newly appointed high school and solving them with her fellow teacher Hong In Pyo. Nam will play the role of Hong In Pyo, the grandson of the founder of the school and a Chinese character teacher. He will stand by Ahn Eun Young as a partner who recharges her “energy.” Expectations are high on what kind of performances Nam will show as he confronts jelly monsters, the residue of desire.
Another “youthful” drama is on its way. In the upcoming drama Start-Up, which depicts the start and growth of young people dreaming of success in South Korea’s fictional Silicon Valley called Sandbox, Nam plays Nam Do San, who works hard to shine once more. With this, he will show the unexpected charm of a person who is both a NGSB (no girlfriend since birth) and a coding genius.
