The Sound of A Flower

To get ready for the role in this historical rom-com, Suzy went to pansori classes (traditional Korean musical storytelling) for a year! She played the first female pansori singer in Korea who came through various obstacles to perform in public. Since the series is set in the Joseon era, women weren’t allowed to perform in the public because of their gender.

To be precise, Suzy stared as a young girl who dreamed of learning pansori. Initially, she was inspired by a pansori teacher whom she once heard performing. However, the teacher refused to teach her because of that discrimination matter.

Nonetheless, the stubborn girl found a way out – disguised as a man, she entered the pansori school. But still, the teacher she wanted to learn from didn’t agree to accept her as a student.

One day, the teacher found out that the King’s father wanted to hold a contest where Pandora performers would compete against each other. Since the teacher knew the desperate girl had true talent, he agreed to teach her to send to the competition. However, they made a huge risk by doing so, since a woman’s participation in the contest might be punished by the death penalty for both – the student and the teacher.

Then, the actress appeared in the fantasy series “While You Were Sleeping”, where she starred as a woman with supernatural abilities (let’s say so). After a catastrophe, the woman started seeing dreams of future tragic events happening to other people. It could be the people she knew or complete strangers. Much more interesting events started to happen when she met a prosecutor (played by Lee Jong Suk) and learned that there were more people with similar talent.

Start Up

It might seem that Suzy played quite a wide range of characters in dramas of all possible genres, but here’s another surprise. The actress played an ambitious entrepreneur in the Netflix tech drama “Start-Up”.

In the series, Suzy played the character who lived in Sandbox, Korea’s fictional Silicon Valley and dreamt of becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs. Her character was a true workaholic dreaming of launching a startup. She worked alongside Nam Joo Hyuk, who starred in the drama as a math genius.
She doesn’t essentially focus on the screen time when choosing a project.

Her professionalism was especially recognized in the film “Ashfall”. Suzy wanted to take the role even though her screen time in the film is quite short. The actress says she selects the projects depending on the scenario and the genre, not the time she appears on the screen. She chose to take part in this project since she liked the scenario and it was of a genre that she had never previously done.
