|Revised Romanization||Nam Sang-mi|
Nam Sang-mi was working in a Lotteria restaurant near Hanyang University in the fall of 2001 when someone posted her personal photos on the internet. Her popularity as an ulzzang led to her discovery as an actress. She made her debut in the 2003 melodrama series Love Letter, and began her acting career by taking small roles in films, TV dramas, and commercials. Her first leading role came with Sweet Spy in 2005. This was followed by leading roles in comedy drama Bad Family (2006) and action romance drama Time Between Dog and Wolf (2007).
Nam said regarding her role in horror film Possessed (2009), "The moment I read the script, I wanted this part badly. After such a long time away from films, it excited me, and I can show a completely different side than I've shown in dramas." She next played the titular character in romantic comedy drama Invincible Lee Pyung Kang.
After starring in close friend Ku Hye-sun's short film You (2010), Ku cast her as the leading lady of her second feature film The Peach Tree (2012). Meanwhile, on the small screen, Nam starred in the retro music drama Lights and Shadows (2011) and romantic comedy drama Goddess of Marriage (2013).
