Nam Joo Hyuk of the hit Korean drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo flaunted a more mature and masculine look for the March issue of Elle Korea.
Joo Hyuk often portrays the role of a playful and innocent young lad in his projects. But for his photo shoot with the media outlet, the 22-year-old actor wanted to exude maturity and a masculine charm. With an intense look and a bad boy ensemble, Joo Hyuk definitely gave off a manly vibe.
The model also previously expressed his interest in taking roles with a different personality than his former dramas "I ask myself a lot of questions like how can I enjoy acting even more than I do now and how can I convey my sincerity through my acting."
"Even up until just two years ago, I was working as a model and I never imagined I would be where I am now. I want to show everyone who I am and I think that, right now, the best way to do that is through acting. So, I will continue to work hard to show a better side of me with acting."
Joo Hyuk is reportedly in talks for the TV adaptation of Korean fantasy comic Bride of the Water God!
