“Start-up” stars Nam Joo Hyuk (who plays the nerdy AI developer Nam Do San) and Stephanie Lee (who portrays the sassy designer Jung Sa Ha) might have been bickering in the series as co-workers in Samsan Tech through their residency in Sandbox, but the two are actually really good friends in real life.
The two both started as models-turned-actors in YGKPLUS, before transferring to different agencies. Nam Joo Hyuk is now with Management SOOP, while Stephanie Lee is with VAST Entertainment.
Here are some of their photos from 2014:
Waiting for more interaction between these two, and the Samnsan Tech team!
