My Sony Nex 5n LCD becomes really noisy when shooting at low light (dark environment). Although it doesn't show up when you are reviewing the pictures. Is it normal? I didn't have this issue with my previous Canon S90.

This doesn't seems to be happening in Day or very bright environment.

love minimalism and simplicity

As many said, this is cause there is no magic in the LCD, it is still a video in low light, and to achieve it, sony bumps the ISO for preview/LCD/EVF. On a conventional DSLR you would get a dark viewfinder. On an electronic viewfinder you get noise, but you are able to see what you are shooting. As others have said, the other option is lag.
