— Sumi to Alice in "Broken Arted"
Sumi is a recurring character in the Freeform original series, Good Trouble.
Sumi is portrayed by Kara Wang.
Sumi is highly intelligent and ambitious, studying to become a doctor. She has a good heart, but is riddled with insecurity and craves attention, willing to find it wherever she can. As a result, Sumi can be selfish and becomes unhappy when she isn't receiving the attention she desires. Generally, though, Sumi is bubbly, happy, airy, and easily excited. She hates conflict but often causes it between others due to her inability to recognize personal barriers. For example, Sumi is incredibly self-absorbed and crosses lines when it comes to her newly-founded friendship with her ex-girlfriend, Alice, whose affection and attention she tries to gain by sending mixed signals despite being engaged. She is remarkably smart outside of her flighty social skills.
Sumi is an attractive young woman in her twenties, with long dark brown hair and wide brown eyes. She has a slender physique and her bubbly personality radiates off of her, especially in her big and bright smile.
Sumi stayed the night at the Coterie and borrowed twenty-dollars, Alice's hoodie, and then gave her a kiss goodbye. That night at the party, Alice revealed that she was throwing the party for Sumi, was it was her birthday. Sumi is late and Davia snidely calls her a bitch to Mariana, and says that Sumi is taking advantage of her. Alice explains that the reason they're friends is that lesbians are more mature then straight people and stay friends with their exes. When Sumi arrives, Alice runs to get the cake from the kitchen and Sumi happily announced her engagement to Meera. The newly engaged couple party and socialize, and later, Sumi asks Alice to be her maid of honor and Alice accepts despite the fact that she still loves her.
