This Wednesday is the arrival of highly promoted SBS pre-produced drama While You Were Sleeping, teaming up for the third time screenwriter Park Hye Ryun with her most often used male lead Lee Jong Seok. Even if this drama is a hit I think this ought to be it for these two, Park Hye Ryun has had a good run with Lee Jong Seok in I Hear Your Voice and Pinocchio but the two need to branch out further from each other. Park Hye Ryun is also re-teaming with Suzy after working together in Dream High but that feels like a lifetime ago and remains my favorite Suzy role and it’s sad that Suzy hasn’t improved much in the interim. I do like what I’ve seen of both leads in the previews, they have noticeable chemistry and the mood of the drama captures Park Hye Ryun’s ability to toggle between light everyday comedy and much more serious subject matter. The cast attended the drama press conference last week dressed tonally all over the place with Suzy being the standout in a cute leggy baring red and black dress.
