On April 20th, Yang Se Jong and Lee Yoo Bi may be Netflix's new original series ‘The Girl Downstairs' cast members. Yang Se Jong could take on the role of Lee Won Jun, the male lead. The drama tells the story of Idol Lee Doo Na, who chooses to retire, and Lee Won Jun, a freshman in college, living in the same shared house. 

This will be Yang Se Jong’s first drama after his military discharge. He enlisted in the army after JTBC's 'My Country' and was discharged from the military in November last year. Bae Suzy was considering the role of the female lead, Lee Doo Na. Yang Se Jong and Bae Suzy are expected to work together in one drama.
