The official Doona! synopsis on Netflix reads:

"A college student navigates life and school while dealing with a unique predicament -- he's living with a beautiful former K-pop sensation."

Meanwhile, the webtoon's synopsis reads:

"When Joon moves into his new apartment on his first day of college, he wasn’t expecting beautiful ex-celebrity Duna to be living downstairs. Joon tries to avoid her at first but finds himself growing more and more curious about her mysterious life."

The Netflix K-drama follows Lee Doo Na as she retires from the limelight and opts to live in a share house near a university. She meets Lee Won Joon, a freshman at the university, who also resides on the property.

The two get to know each other and get attracted to one another. The problem is, Won Joon is an ordinary young man without anything extraordinary about him.

Despite all odds, will he be able to win Doo Na's heart?
