The Netflix series “Doona!”, starring Suzy and Yang Se Jong, is a romance drama that tells the story of an ordinary college student, Won Joon, who meets Du Na, who retired after leaving behind the glamorous K-pop idol days. It is based on the Naver webtoon of the same name, “The Girl Downstairs”, written by Min Song-ah, known for her work on “Nanolist”, and gained popularity for the delicate emotional portrayal of a character who creates a campus romance with an idol-turned-housemate.
While working as the main vocalist of a popular idol group and the center of her popularity, Lee Du Na suddenly announced her retirement and stayed in a shared house in a college town. Thanks to her idol origins and unrivaled beauty, as well as her high synchro rate with her characters, Suzy, who was always mentioned in the virtual casting of the webtoon, will play Lee Du Na, which is expected to give great satisfaction to fans of the webtoon.
Yang Se jong, who plays Lee Du Na’s counterpart, Lee Won Joon, has breathed new life into each character with his solid acting skills. He will once again show off a unique charm.
This will be Yang Se Jong’s first work after discharging from the military.
On January 17, Netflix unveiled the 1st look at the drama sharing two stills of the main stars.
Director Lee Jung Hyo of “Crash Landing on You” is in charge of directing “Doona!”
“Doona!” will be released on Netflix in the 4th quarter of 2023.
