Kim Nam Joo

Kim Nam Joo, born in Seoul, is a South Korean actress. When she was two years old, her father’s business failed, which resulted in the family moving to Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, where Kim spent her childhood and adolescence. After graduating from high school, she enrolled as a Dance major at Suwon Women’s College. When she was a sophomore, Kim joined the Miss Korea pageant, and the experience led her to quit school to pursue modeling in September 1992.

Kim won fourth place in a talent search by broadcaster SBS in 1994 and quickly became a popular television star in her twenties. She rose to stardom in the 1990s in television series such as “Model”, “The Boss” and “Her House”. After 2001, Kim went into semi-retirement, only appearing in commercials, particularly after she got married to actor Kim Seung Woo in 2005 and lived as a full-time housewife and mother. Then in 2009, she made her comeback with “Queen of Housewives”. “Housewives” was a rating hit, and went on to collaborate with Park on “Queen of Reversals”. She starred in the 2012 Tv series, “My Husband Got a Family”, the number one top-rated program on Korean television for the entire year of 2012. In 2018, Kim received critical acclaim for her role in the series Misty.
