It is common for actors to appear on entertainment shows and show a new side of themselves, but the general belief is that if their image becomes fixed in entertainment shows, it can be an obstacle to returning to their day job and playing new characters.

For this reason, it is common for actors to withdraw from entertainment shows in which they are regularly appearing before appearing in a work, or to appear only in short entertainment shows that end after 2 to 3 months. There are many actors who only appear on entertainment shows to promote their work and are reluctant to make regular appearances.

Na In-woo earned the nickname ‘the next Kim Jong-min’ for his immature appearance while appearing on KBS’ signature entertainment show ‘2 Days & 1 Night’ starting in 2022, but in the drama, he plays a 180-degree different character as the heir to a chaebol family who is rational and never loses his composure. do.

Because of this image change, other contestants on ‘2 Days & 1 Night’ said to Na In-woo, “You seem to be acting like an idiot on entertainment shows,” which made people laugh.
