The remaining two high profile K-dramas of 2016 are here or right around the corner, Legend of the Blue Sea appears a prime time hit straight out of the gate and Goblin rides vaunted expectations on a cable platform. Lee Jong Seok raced to the forefront of the 2017 drama line with news that he was doing screenwriter Park Hye Ryun‘s next year drama While You Were Sleeping. The casting would normally be a slam dunk third go around between the two, with Lee Jong Seok having hit daebak acting twice with Park Hye Ryun’s I Hear Your Voice and Pinocchio, but news that his leading lady is likely Suzy has garnered mixed reactions. But Suzy’s best performance was arguably in her debut drama Dream High which Park Hye Ryun also wrote so maybe this reunion will also serve Suzy well. All I know is that Lee Jong Seok + Park Hye Ryun’s story is a must watch, and what better reminder than the latest Cosmopolitan Korea spread with Lee Jong Seok looking like his pre-makeover Choi Dal Po incarnation from Pinocchio. Dal Po ya!
