Naeun in A-TEEN

The teenage web series collected 6 million views in the first month and a half.

A-Teen is a coming of age series that is about the life stories of six high school students, their school, friendship, and love life. The success of A-Teen was followed by the production of A-Teen Season 2 in 2019.
April’s Naeun played as Kim Ha-na, an innocent high school student with perfect grades, character, and appearance. She quickly became the star of the web series due to her youthful character and beautiful face. Her make-up in the series gained huge interest and was copied by female viewers.
Before playing as Kim Ha-na, Naeun was actually hoping to play the role of Do Ha-na. When the director asked her to perform as Kim Ha-na, she got the role instead.
Naeun in Extraordinary You
Naeun received a lot of praise for her latest TV drama series. She performed as Yeo Joo-da in MBC’s Extraordinary You. The drama was adapted from the webtoon July Found by Chance. Extraordinary You aired on Wednesday and Tuesday from October 2nd to November 21st, 2019.
Extraordinary You was produced in a comic-like setting. Naeun’s acting talent was tested because she had to perform dual characters. Naeun’s role, Yeo Joo-da is the leading role in the comic. Yeo Joo-da’s character is kind, hopeful and confident about her future. She is raised from a poor family but attends a school in which the majority of the students come from a wealthy family.
Yeo Joo-da has a romantic relationship with Oh Nam-joo, the son of the family who manages the school. Oh Nam-joo’s mother dislikes her son’s relationship with Yeo Joo-da. She is also the target of bullying from girls from other schools because of her relationship. As the leading character in the comic, she has a strong will and is determined to keep the relationship.
Inside the comic, she must follow the writer’s story and hide her emotions but outside the comic, she shows her brave and confident character. Outside of the comic life, she confronts anybody who gets in her way.

She promoted Peripera’s popular lip tint line-up, Ink The Airy Velvet. She looked extremely lovely and youthful in the commercial pictorial.
In September 2019, Peripera released Naeun’s pictorial for the autumn collection. She was photographed wearing a brown outfit and brown hat while holding Peripera INK V Shading.
