She explains, “I also had some parts when I really felt for the character, Doona.” She added, “My heart was really fluttering, I would sometimes scream when I was reading the script.” And then said, “If you watch the show, you’ll really think that I’m perfectly in sync with the character.”

The singer-actress, who debuted in JYP Entertainment’s Miss A, talked about the time she actively promoted as a K-pop girl group member.

She first stated that while filming for “Doona,” she wanted to give a big hug to her character. Suzy explained, “I did think of the times when I was part of a girl group. So, looking back, I felt that there are moments when I felt I was struggling. But, I didn’t really know much. I think I tried to deny that I was struggling. I tried to just stay as a bubbly person, and stay in my bright bubbly kind of character.”

She continued, “But Doona is different. She would express her feelings in every extent. She let her self suffer, she let her self go through those emotions. So, I kind of was envious of her, and I could resonate with her in that sense. So, that’s why I thought I wanted to give her a big hug.”

Suzy also mentioned her fictional girl group, Dream Sweet. She said, “While were filming the show, we had to practice. It’s been quite a long time since I had members together with me, and doing a group performance. It was quite new because I had different members this time. But we got quite close to each other.”

She shared, ‘At first it was a mess, but, later on, we became better synchronised as a group. So, I felt very satisfied.”
