Singer and actress Suzy (29) recently opened up about her emotions and her highly anticipated series “Doona!”
On the 17th of October, Cosmopolitan released a photoshoot and interview with Suzy, who is preparing for the release of the Netflix series “Doona!” In the released photos, Suzy radiates a pure and transparent charm under the autumn sunlight, showcasing her clear beauty without any flaws.
The drama “Doona!”, based on a webtoon of the same name, depicts the romance that unfolds when retired idol Doona (Suzy) meets ordinary college student Wonjun (Yang Se Jong) in a share house. Suzy expressed a special attachment to Doona, saying, “Although my experiences and Doona’s experiences are different, I was able to understand Doona better than anyone else. Memories of my idol days also came to mind. When I was in my early twenties, I didn’t have the luxury to feel and express pain like Doona. I hid my emotions.”
She continued, “But Doona fully experiences her emotions and suffers freely. She even has a wicked side that intentionally says mean things. That’s why there is a cool corner where I want to embrace her. It was thrilling to portray such a character. I discussed this with the director. I hope the story will make people initially misunderstand Doona, but eventually understand her.”
When asked how she would have lived if she had left behind her idol life and enjoyed campus life like others, Suzy replied, “I think I would have lived very well. I would have enjoyed it more than anyone else!” with a refreshing smile.
Meanwhile, Suzy also revealed a change in her mindset after receiving recognition for her acting skills in the lead role of the web drama “Anna” on Coupang Play. She said, “I have gained confidence in myself. Now I feel like I need to believe in myself more. Since then, people don’t just see me as a bright and pretty person, and I am very satisfied with that,” smiling.
So, what kind of person does Suzy want to become? She said, “I hope I age well. Wrinkles and all, I want to be cool and go at my own pace. Instead of being bound by the past or the future, I try to be faithful to each moment like living day by day. If I live each day as a good day, wouldn’t I become a good adult?” (laughs)
