Still cuts of actress Suzy transforming into idol “Lee Doo-na” attracted attention
On September 28th, Netflix released Suzy’s still cuts from “Doona!” through its official account with the caption “What kind of person is idol Lee Doo-na?“.
“Doona!” is a drama based on Min Song-ah’s work “The Girl Downstairs”, which has been serialized on Naver since July 2019. It depicts the story of ordinary college student Lee Won-jun (Yang Se-jong) meeting Lee Doo-na (Suzy), who retired after leaving behind the glamorous K-pop idol days, and becoming housemates.
In “Doona!”, Suzy plays the role of Lee Doo-na, the main vocalist of a popular idol group and the center of popularity. Lee Doo-na announces her sudden retirement and stays in a share house in a college town.
Still cuts released by Netflix show Suzy’s complete transformation into Lee Doo-na. As an idol on stage, Suzy’s presence is reminiscent of her Miss A days, drawing attention. Netflix also unveiled essential elements of idol culture like photocards, further increasing expectations for her transformation into Lee Doo-na.
