Doona! Review 2023 Tv Show Series Cast Crew Online
There was a lot of comments when the trailers came out that this was going to be female version of Nevertheless. Well let me tell you that it is not. Not in the slightest.
This series tells you the story about the trauma of a kpop idol who is completely lost and broken, and who finds herself relying on the sweet care and innocent feelings of a young boy living in the same dorm house she is hiding in.
The drama has a straightforward story with well written and complex characters. The more you watch the more about their past you will unearth, and the more of their layers you will uncover. They have an spectacular growth and development and it is truly amazing to watch. How they make mistakes, they regret them, learn from them and heal with the love they give each other.
It was very exciting to me to watch Yang Se Jong after his comeback, he is an amazing actor and he was fantastic in this role, specially in the emotional scenes. He carried the series. I also need to mention that he plays a very shy, inexperienced, crazy in love 20 year old boy, when in reality he is a 30 year old man. Just outstanding.( the difference when we saw him playing My Country: The new Age!!)
Chemistry between him and Bae Suzy was good enough, although I didn’t think the skin-ship ( kisses, hugs etc…) in this was as natural and organic as I would have expected from such experienced cast and high quality production, not sure if it was done on purpose for the aesthetics of the drama but it felt staged and a bit fake. But I am used to this already in asian dramas so it might have been because of censorship and all that.
Secondary characters and couples were also fantastic and entertaining . The second female lead had also a very amazing subplot, watching her story with the male lead you were left wanting to know more about them and for a moment you actually rooted for them to become happy forever and ever. Such endearing but bittersweet story.
Overall it was a very enjoyable watch , perfect to binge during a rainy weekend. You won’t regret it.
