Last year marked 100 years of Korean movies. Director Yoon He-yeol screened a short film <Dream> with a child actor Namhoon who stars childhood of <Parasite> director Bong Joon-ho who grew his dream of becoming a director from 13. A kid model turned actor Namhoon made strong presence in a number of competitions and won the best rookie at the 18th Korea Culture & Entertainment Awards and the best child actor at the 2019 World Star Awards.

“My mom said I smiled a lot since baby and so she took a lot of photos and sent them to baby model contests. I liked photo shoot in swimming suit, party costumes and Halloween costumes. When I finish the shooting, I received a lot of toys and stationeries” says Namhoon. The modeling led to an opportunity for acting which he seized the moment.

“My mom (Seo Jeong-hye) is my reliable supporter. She works a as a senior model at the moment. She majored in the piano and I might have that blood. She often advises me that no matter how hard I practice I must perform on stages as many as I can to give 100% of what I have. My father is fond of the movies also. I watched the Lord of the Rings with him and grew my dream to be an actor.”

“I would like to show my gratitude to International Model Association president Ahn Byeong-cheon, Namyejong Practical Arts College director Cha Eun-sun/deputy director Kim Jae-yeon/professor Jeon Mi-rye, and the Global Expo Kid Model Association president Im Jae-su.”

When asked about future plan, he said “I want to challenge commercials. I also want to try drawing and cooking and travel here and there if time allows. Of course acting is my top priority and I want to appear in more good films.”
