Why is this newbie Korean actress being compared to Suzy? 

The Korean acting industry is filled with great actors and actresses debuting every year, who, despite their inexperience, can be formidable names. Born in 1999, rookie actress Won Ji An is gaining attention for her great prospects, having starred in multiple big projects alongside co-stars with years of experience in the industry.

Won Ji An debuted under Hiin Entertainment with a minor role in Jung Hae In’s hit drama “D.P”. Despite her brief appearance, the actress drew immense attention as netizens compared her visuals to the “nation’s first love” Suzy.
