Kim Nam Hee revealed his relationship with JYP Entertainment.
Kim Nam Hee said, “There was a time when I decided to audition everywhere. I wanted to gain a lot of audition experience. At that time, I also took part in JYP’s actor audition. It’s actually an audition for singers, dancers and actors. I applied because there was an ‘actor’ part.“
He continued, “They told me to come to the audition, so I went to JYP’s office building. But there was a line all the way to the main street. Everyone from kindergarteners to young people in their 20s danced, so I wondered if I should audition here. I was the only middle-aged man. However, as I came so far, I waited a few hours to enter the audition hall.“
Kim Nam Hee confessed, “Then my turn came. Seeing me, a middle-aged man, the judges were surprised and asked, ‘What are you going to do?’ I replied, ‘I’m going to try acting.’ They said, ‘Please try it.’ I started my lines, but it finished in 5 seconds.“
Kim Nam Hee added, “I knew this wasn’t a place for me from the beginning.“
