    I totally agree with you! I cannot wait for While You Were Sleeping…I’ve loved Lee Jong Suk in all of his other dramas. Temperature of Love and 20th Century Boy and Girl are also on my must watch list. I just started watching School 2017 (I’m a little late to that drama lol)…do you recommend that one too?

      I’ve been waiting for While You Were Sleeping for so long! I’m definitely trying to keep my expectations in check, but it’s hard not to get excited with Lee Jong Suk teamed up with the Pinocchio/I Hear Your Voice writer again. I really hope they can recreate the magic 🙂

      I haven’t started School 2017 yet. It was not originally on my watch list, but after hearing such good things about it, I have now added it. Question is, when will I get to it? lol

    Same here. Been waiting for While You Were Sleeping for the longest time.

    Manhole seems very interesting but the ratings are very low. Hopefully you will give it a good score so I can watch. LOL

      Thankfully, While You Were Sleeping is FINALLY almost here, lol. It’s one of my most highly anticipated dramas. I’m also really looking forward to Manhole. I hope I like it enough to give it a good score too, hehe. I just hope it doesn’t get cut because of the ratings 😦

    Why Is while you’re sleeping always stops in the middle? Even if I rewind it. It starts from episode 1 to 4. What should I do?


    • Kay says:

      It sounds like you may need to contact customer support for whatever site you are watching on. If it’s Viki or DramaFever, they should be able to advise you.
