She was in a super popular historical drama back in 2018!

It wouldn't necessarily be wrong to say that Nam Ji Hyun's on-screen journey, one that started all the way back in the early 2000s, has been an ideal one—a child star enters the industry, plays the younger counterparts of leading stars, graduates from such roles, and down the line, topbills her own K-dramas.

Aside from Nam Ji Hyun's endearing smile and personality, her constantly-proven ability to star in a vast range of genres is something to adore. Sickly-sweet rom-coms? Check. Action-packed historical dramas? Check. Stories about everyday girls going through everyday things? Check. Her latest offering to fans, tvN and Netflix's take on Little Women, is only another enjoyable watch waiting for us to binge. Can't wait another week for more episodes to premiere? Scroll through the rest (and the best) of Ji Hyun's filmography below:
