Ordinary university student Lee Won-jun’s life takes a delightful turn when he moves into a shared house occupied by retired K-pop idol Doona.

As the premiere date of October 20th for Doona! approaches, the main trailer, and key art give fans a taste of what’s to come.

The Blossoming Romance Between Suzy and Yang Se-jong

Suzy, previously a K-pop sensation herself, is a near-perfect embodiment of Doona. Paired with Yang Se-jong’s portrayal of the innocent-hearted university student Won-jun, the series promises a heart-fluttering romance.

Director Lee Jung-hyo, recognized for his masterful direction in hits like Crash Landing on You and Romance Is a Bonus Book, emphasizes the essence of the series, saying, “The webtoon realistically depicts the awkwardness in relationships. I want ‘Doona!’ to be a series where viewers can fondly reminisce about their clumsy days in their 20s.”

Suzy’s Enchanting Portrayal of Doona

On the surface, Suzy is also an uncannily accurate representation of Doona from the popular webtoon. Suzy’s impeccable features, from her porcelain complexion and sleek black hair to her mesmerizing eyes, confirm she’s the ideal fit for the role. As director Lee says, “Who else could play the role of Doona if not Suzy?”

Describing her character, Suzy says, “Doona is straightforward and blunt, but she also carries many scars within. She may seem like a cat with sharp claws, but in reality, she is like a ‘dog-cat’ who likes people.” 

Mysteries surrounding Doona

Despite being a central character, the reasons behind Doona’s retirement from her stellar idol career remain shrouded in mystery. Hints from the trailer suggest a turbulent past, with glimpses of emotional breakdowns and unanswered questions.

With the trailer hinting at the romance between a former idol and a college student, Doona! is set to debut on October 20 exclusively on Netflix, promising a heartwarming exploration of love, identity, and youth.
