Doona Bae (Korean pronunciation: [bɛduna]) portrays Sun Bak in Sense8. She was born October 11, 1979, in Seoul, South Korea. Bae is an actress and photographer.
Background and ChildhoodEdit
Growing up, Bae would follow her mother, Kim Hwa-young, a famous stage actress in Korea, around the theater and rehearsal halls, learning lines of dialogue as she went along. This did not initially lead Bae towards acting. She states, "People might say that since my mother is a theater actor, I became an actress. But to me, those experiences probably had the opposite effect. On the contrary, because I saw many great actors working with my mother, I thought this was a job only people with extraordinary talent could do."
Bae first became known outside Korea for her roles as the protagonist's political activist girlfriend Cha Young-mi in Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002), as archer Park Nam-joo in Bong Joon-ho's The Host (2006), and as an inflatable sex doll-come-to-life in Hirokazu Koreeda's Air Doll (2009). She then had English-speaking roles in various works of The Wachowskis, including the films Cloud Atlas (2012), Jupiter Ascending (2015), and the TV series Sense8 (2015).
