First sleepy couple stills for SBS’s While You Were Sleeping
Aw, don’t they look cozy. Cameras began rolling ages ago on the pre-produced drama While You Were Sleeping, but the promo rounds have only just begun, and the first official stills of Lee Jong-seok (W–Two Worlds) and Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond) have finally been released. They’re both reuniting with writer Park Hye-ryun (Pinocchio, I Hear Your Voice, Dream High) for a new romance that mixes supernatural and legal elements, hopefully to great effect a la I Hear Your Voice.
Suzy plays a woman who can see the future in her dreams—specifically, unfortunate things that are about to happen to other people—and Lee Jong-seok is a prosecutor who will fight to prevent her premonitions from becoming reality. I’m kind of hoping that the two characters don’t know each other in the bus scene that’s pictured, since it would make for a sweet meet-cute.
Stills from the script reading have also been released, featuring supporting leads Lee Sang-yub (This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair) as a prosecutor-turned-lawyer, and Go Sung-hee (My Beautiful Bride) as Lee Jong-seok’s colleague at the prosecutor’s office. Other supporting cast members include Jung Hae-in (The Lonely Shining Goblin), Park Jin-ju (Reunited Worlds), and Shin Jae-ha (Wanted) as Lee Jong-seok’s little brother. PD Oh Choong-hwan of Doctors is at the helm.
I’m keen to learn more about the plot, since the one-line description for the show hasn’t changed since early casting reports way back in last November. That’s almost a year of waiting! I feel like I should get a gold star for being this patient, but I suppose a good drama would be the best reward. Everyone cross all fingers and toes that it’ll be worth the wait!
While You Were Sleeping follows Reunited Worlds on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning in late September.
