About ‘Anna’

The K-drama ‘Anna’ depicts the story of a young woman whose life takes a turn due to an inconsequential lie. In the drama, Suzy takes on the role of the main lead, Yumi. The show is directed by Director Lee Joo-young, who has been recognized for his directing skills and workmanship through the movie, ‘Single Rider’.

She continued to urge fans to look forward to the drama and see her on-screen in the drama 'Anna' that is scheduled to be released in 2022.
