On the other hand, Im Nayoung gained recognition after appearing in the 2016 Mnet survival show “Produce 101”. Afterwards, she debuted as a member of project girl group I.O.I and later PRISTIN. After both of her groups disbanded, Im Nayoung ventured into acting and has since been actively working in the field.
In particular, Nayoung made her official drama debut in the 2020 series “Flower of Evil”, and has since expanded her repertoire with various works such as “Summer Guys”, “Over To You”, ”Twenty Hacker”, and “Imitation”. She has also made her theatrical debut with the 2021 play “I Loved You”.
In March, Im Nayoung performed at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, the largest performing arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere. Here, she captivated the audience with her performance in “Hello, the Hell: Othello”, a physical theater production inspired by William Shakespeare’s tragedy “Othello”, where she played the role of Desdemona.
Recently, she was caught up in dating rumors with actor Choi Woong, who is 9 years older and co-starred with her in the aforementioned play. However, both parties have since refuted the rumor, and described their relationship as “close colleagues”.
