Hopes are high, and usually that’s where dreams go to die but I’m inclined to give this one a shot at bringing in viewers. Upcoming SBS Wed-Thurs drama While You Were Sleeping pairs together successful screenwriter Park Hye Ryun of Pinocchio, I Hear Your Voice, and Dream High fame with PD Oh Choong Hwan who directed Doctors and You From Another Star, and adds popular Lee Jong Seok and Suzy on top of that team as the leads. Neither of the leads had a big hit with their last dramas, W: Two Worlds led its time slot but only got as high as 13.8% AGB ratings and remained in the low teens while Uncontrollably Fond was legit a ratings disappointment for the high profile names attached. I’m hoping for more chemistry from the leads this time than their previous drama pairings, and nicely fleshed out characters with a romance trajectory that really hits a home run with audiences.
In addition to Lee Jong Seok and Suzy, the supporting cast of While You Were Sleeping includes Lee Sang Yeob, Jung Hae In, Go Sung Hee, Shin Jae Ha, Kim Min Jae, and Park Jin Joo.
