The romantic comedy "Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol" held a press conference with lead stars Go Ara and Lee Jae Wook, the director, and the cast!

The drama follows the energetic pianist named Goo La La (played by Go Ara). And Sun Woo Joon (played by Lee Jae Wook), an expert part-timer who bumped on each other's fate at a piano academy called La La Land in a small countryside village.

Director And Screenwriter: 'Go Ara Is The Perfect Choice For The Role'

Goo La La was described by the producing director (PD) Kim Min Kyung as a character who is never before seen in a Korean rom-com but one that suits Go Ara to a tee. Go Ara shared that she enjoyed many rom-com as a viewer, and she always wanted to do the genre. After being offered the role, although it is her first time doing it, she realized that this is the perfect time to grab and fulfill her dreams.

The actress continued that her character is a lot like Rapunzel from Tangled. Rapunzel grew up obedient to her one parent, with only her pet for company. The world of her name begins to change when she meets Sun Woo Joon at La La Land.

As per the screenwriter of the drama, she described Go Ara to be a 200 percent match for the character. And with the statement, Go Ara replied that she thinks it's just 99 percent and she'll leave about a 1 percent gap. Addedly, Go Ara said that she had practiced piano for already 3-4 months to prepare for her role. And although she plays piano as a hobby, she still wanted to improve her playing of more impressive songs for the drama.
