While ‘The Great Shaman Ga Doo Shim’ marks the first drama for Nam Da Reum in the lead after embracing adulthood, when asked about his first impression of the script, he revealed that he thought he can greet viewers with a fresh project and character. He found his offered role Na Woo Soo attractive and interesting.
“Thank you for liking me. I don’t think that the way I regard this role will be much different from before. However, since there is the pressure and responsibility of playing a lead character, I vowed to make an effort so that I can immerse more seriously into the drama” he added.
Further talking about his character from the drama, he shared “If I had to pick something I have in common with him, it’s that I was also loved by my teachers when I was a student. And I wasn’t as intelligent as him, but I think I studied hard and got good grades.”
When questioned about how Nam Da Reum depicted this character for the viewers, he responded by saying that he thinks he acted with utter care so that Na Woo Soo’s words and actions seem natural of someone who is born with a silver spoon and is the school valedictorian.
Talking about working with Kim Sae Rom, the actor said, “Kim Sae Ron nuna took good care of me on the set, so I was able to act more comfortably. She’s only two years older than me, and we’ve been on a similar path, so we had similar concerns and talked about them on the set. I’m very shy, but I was thankful because she was making a lot of effort.”
Nam Da Reum signed off with a message for the fans and asserted that the drama is comfortably enjoyable. While watching the values and thoughts of the characters in the drama, he thinks that the audience might be able to reflect on them as well.
‘The Great Shaman Ga Doo Shim’ is a new fantasy romantic drama starring Kim Sae Ron as Ga Doo Shim, a teen with supernatural abilities who wish to be an average high school student but is destined to become a shaman. On the other hand, Nam Da Reum will essay the role of Na Woo Soo, a golden kid who begins to see ghosts after meeting Ga Doo Shim. They embarked on an adventure together to solve a deadly mystery.
‘The Great Shaman Ga Doo Shim’ will premier on July 30.
