Kim Namjoo better known as Namjoo, is a South Korean singer and actress. She is best known as a member of Apink.


Kim attended Seoul Performing Arts High School along with fellow Apink members Naeun, Hayoung, and former member Hong Yookyung. She graduated in February 2014. In 2015, Kim was accepted to Sungkyunkwan University's Department of Performance Arts.

Before debuting with Apink, she starred in a 2007 TV commercial at age 13.

Kim joined Cube Entertainment through the 2010 Cube Party auditions and was one of the last Apink members to be introduced before the group's debut. She is also one of the two members of Apink's sub-unit PINK BnN along with Bomi.

In September 2015, she was cast in Naver TVCast's 8-episode web drama Investigator Alice, which was released in October 2015, where she portrayed detective Chun Yeon-joo.

In March 2015, Kim joined MBC's Tutoring Across Generations in place of Lee Tae-im, but the show got cancelled on April 2 after episode 21 due to falling ratings. Kim with fellow member Yoon Bo-mi appeared on Sugar Man as PINK BnN on October 20, 2015. In 2016, Kim and Apink co-member Yoon Bo-mi became the new MCs of Shikshin Road 2. In the December 27 broadcast of King of Mask Singer, it was revealed that Kim was behind the mask "Good Daughter Shim Cheong".

Kim alongside groupmate Eunji and Jang Hyun-seung, former member of Beast, released the single "A Year Ago" from the project A Cube For Season #White on January 3, 2013 to commemorate the success of their respective groups.

In 2014, she performed "Seoul Lonely" with the hip-hop trio Phantom on several music programs.

On June 2, 2015, she released a duet with BtoB's Yook Sungjae entitled "Photograph", as part of Cube Entertainment's project single album A Cube For Season #Blue Season 2.
