Suzy’s new movie after the blockbuster Anna “closed” the male lead.
The Girl Downstairs is the follow-up drama of national first love Suzy after the fever named Anna. Recently, after many rumors, the producer has officially announced that the male lead will be paired with the nation’s first love in this romantic project. The guy is called Yang Se Jong, the actor is 2 years older than Suzy.
Based on the hit webtoon series of the same name, The Girl Downstairs tells the story of a beautiful female idol who decided to retire from the entertainment industry and an ordinary college student. They accidentally become housemates again and begin to develop special feelings between two people who seem to belong to two different worlds. Suzy will play the female lead Lee Doo Na, a beautiful, charming former idol with a mysterious past while Yang Se Jong has been cast as the male lead Lee Won Joon.

Yang Se Jong also has the gentle side of a student Lee Won Joon
For Suzy, Lee Doo Na is probably a role that is not too challenging when she herself is a beautiful and attractive idol. Recently, she also proved her acting ability after the hit work “Anna”, which helped her get rid of the label “idol acting” to be recognized as a real actress.
As for Yang Se Jong, Suzy’s “new boyfriend” on the list of screen lovers, although he has only been filming for 6 years, his acting is something that the audience does not need to worry about. Having trained well at Korea National University of Arts, majoring in Theater and Film, right after entering the profession, Yang Se Jong had the opportunity to participate in big projects. The debut role in the blockbuster Dr. Romantic helped the handsome Yang family to be highly appreciated, immediately classified as a real actor.
Yang Se Jong has been loved since his first movie Dr. Romantic
Yang Se Jong’s acting is really not ordinary
After only 1 year of working, Yang Se Jong had her first lead role in the movie Temperature of Love, alongside the powerful sister Seo Hyun Jin. This work was an unexpected success, making Yang Se Jong one of the most popular rookies of 2017. However, in the midst of his rising career, Yang Se Jong had to enlist in the army. Since Temperature of Love up to now, he has only had 3 films, including 2 leading roles and a return to Dr. Romantic 2, however, only took on a cameo role that appeared briefly.
Until now, it has been more than 2 years that the audience has not seen Yang Se Jong on the screen, because of this, his reputation has decreased quite a lot. Fans hope that his return to The Girl Downstairs, alongside Suzy, will help him regain his reputation. And if this movie is released quickly, this is also the first work after discharge of “former soldier” Yang Se Jong.
