Fans of the romance webtoon “The Girl Downstairs” (“Lee Doona!”) have been wondering who will play the male protagonist in the drama adaptation alongside Bae Suzy, who plays the female lead. It could be Yang Se-Jong! According to the news, Yang Se-Jong chose “The Girl Downstairs” as his first drama role after being discharged from the military.
The original webtoon “The Girl Downstairs” depicts Duna Lee (Lee Du-Na) and Joon Lee (Lee Won-Joon)’s college romance. Since 2019, it has been serialized on Naver Webtoon, and the English version is now available on WEBTOON.
Yang Se-Jong is in talks to play Joon Lee, the male protagonist in the drama “The Girl Downstairs.” In the webtoon, he meets Duna Lee on the first day of college, when he checks into a share house. He doesn’t recognize her at first, but later realizes she’s the legendary idol who abruptly retired and vanished.
Yang Se-Jong demonstrated his ability to act in romantic roles in his dramas “Temperature of Love” and “Still 17,” which raised expectations for his new role in “The Girl Downstairs.” He enlisted in the Korean military in May 2020 and served until November 2021.
“The Girl Downstairs” will be a Netflix series, and the detailed schedule has not been confirmed as of April 2022.
