When I went to check the news today, I was surprised to see Na In-woo’s pictures in hanbok offering Lunar New Year greetings, thinking that there were just few photos (and he looked super great!), but it turned out that there was an accompanying interview! Currently making a name of himself through the tvn weekender Mr. Queen, Na In-woo portrays the character Kim Byung-in, cousin of the Queen who harbors feelings for her and will stop at nothing to protect her. I might detest Byung-in in the drama, but I can’t win against smiling Na In-woo.

A phrase or word you want to hear being associated with you: An actor who can act well.

A variety program you want to join if you are given a chance: 2 Days 1 Night! They seem so close with the family-like air around them. I’m a homebody who prefers spending time at home, so there are still lots of places in Korea that I’ve never been to. I think that I’d be able to make many fun memories by traveling to every nook and cranny of our country.
A different area you are interested in trying, other than acting: I want to be a part of a band. I want to master playing the guitar and participate in a concert. If there’s a chance to do so, I’d like to give it a try.

A wish you want to achieve this year: It would be great if everyone, including myself, can stay away from illness and be healthy, both physically and mentally. If it’s possible, I’d like to hold a fan meeting. I’ve never had one, so I thought that it would be the best place to return all the support and love I have received up until now.
Your last word: I love you all!
