Well, I’m definitely in! Lee Jong Suk (W-Two Worlds) has been confirmed to be starring in the new drama While You Were Sleeping. While You Were Sleeping is the latest drama from writer Park Hye Run of hit dramas I Hear Your Voice, Pinocchio, and Dream High. Lee Jong Suk previously worked with the writer on I Hear Your Voice and Pinocchio.
While You Were Sleeping is about a woman who sees terrible things that will happen to people in the future through her dreams and a prosecutor who tries to prevent them from happening.
Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond) has been offered the leading role opposite of Lee Jong Suk as our future-seeing heroine. I would be completely fine with Suzy accepting this role as I have always found her pleasant and particularly enjoyed her in her last drama Uncontrollably Fond.
I’m a big fan of this writer and am super excited at the third reunion between her and Lee Jong Suk. I know we will get some fully developed characters with a lot of heart and maybe even a dose of mystery. I love the fantasy premise, and I think Lee Jong Suk and Suzy would be a pretty fun pair.
While You Were Sleeping is looking to air in the first half of 2017.
Update 11/28/16: Suzy has been confirmed to be starring in While You Were Sleeping.
