WATCH: What Nam Joo Hyuk Thinks of Penshoppe

It looks like Christmas came early ’cause Penshoppe just revealed their newest brand ambassador. ‘Tis definitely the season to be jolly as we welcome Korean actor and model Nam Joo Hyuk to the all-star club of brand ambassadors. Things just keep getting better and better, and we ain’t complaining about it.

Although he’s generated some buzz from his roleds in K-dramas such as Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, and most recently, The Bride of Habaek, Nam Joo Hyuk actually started out as a model, first debuting on the runway of SONGZIO Homme’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection way back in 2013. Standing tall at 6’2″, the angel-faced 23-year-old has also been taking his fashion game a step further as he treads along the fluid movement of modeling.

Keeping things cool and calm, Nam Joo Hyuk easily fits into the brand’s latest holiday campaign. Donning crazy pullovers and sporty jackets, the collection is also part of the recently launched #IAmDifferent anti-bullying campaign.We stopped by during Nam Joo Hyuk’s exclusive shoot in Seoul and got the chance to have a one-on-one with Korea’s wonder boy. During our chat, we found out about what his idea of relaxation is, what he thought about being Penshoppe’s newest face, and managed to squeeze in a feisty round of quick fire questions.

Watch the video below:

What do you think about the collection?
It’s the kind of like the style that I used to wear in my early 20’s, so it reminds me of the old days. Even though it was just a few years back, I feel like I am getting younger again. I am really excited to show my new style to Filipino fans.

How did you feel when you were first asked to be part of Penshoppe?
I was surprised and excited because I have never expected that I would be a main model for an overseas brand.I promised myself that I will do my best to perform well during shooting and show some great styles in the Penshoppe collection.

What’s your favorite piece?
I like most of the collections, but if I need to pick one item, it would be the Hawaiian shirt.

What are your favorite things to wear?
I like wearing training suits and sweat shirts.

Which would you choose? No phone for a week or no skincare products for a week?
I would rather not use a phone for a week.

What’s your idea of relaxation?
I watch movies, listen to music and play computer games at home. Also, I take walks with my puppies.

Describe your personal style.
I like a comfy style and basic items such as training wear, sweat shirts, slippers or loafers.

When it comes to fashion, do you prioritize comfort or style?
Comfort but stylish at the same time.
