Suzy will star in the new Coupang Play original series Second Anna (literal title).
According to Starnews, Suzy recently decided to take the lead in Second Anna and is coordinating the details. Second Anna is a new work by director Lee Zoo Young, who directed the 2017 movie A Single Rider, starring Lee Byung Hun and Gong Hyo Jin.
Originally, Lee planned on releasing the work as a movie. However, the project was recently reorganized as an 8-part Coupang Play original series. Second Anna tells the story of a woman who tries to live a life of a different person like those who suffer from Ripley’s syndrome. Suzy will play the title role of Anna, the woman who lives someone else’s life.
Since finishing filming Start-Up last December, Suzy has been contemplating her next steps. According to a source, she chose to star in Second Anna because of its captivating scripts and her trust in director Lee. Since director Kim Tae Yong’s Wonderland, which she starred in with Park Bo Gum, still doesn’t have a set date for its release, Second Anna may be her first comeback on small screens in a while.
Second Anna plans to begin filming later this year after finalizing its full cast.
Meanwhile, Coupang Play is continuing its aggressive investment. Besides Second Anna, they will release One Ordinary Day, starring Kim Soo Hyun and Cha Seung Won, as its original series.
