Sorry for the late post on newly arrived SBS Wed-Thurs drama While You Were Sleeping but in between watching the first episode and then having tickets to Hamilton last night, it was a sensory and entertainment awesomeness overload. I love While You Were Sleeping, love love love it! This is the first drama since Goblin that has roped my excitement and dug its claws into me to want more. The first two episodes that aired on Wednesday was almost a self-contained story on its own, with the beginning and final moments of the episode bookending an emotional and cathartic payoff already.
I ship the OTP so badly, with both Lee Jong Seok and Suzy delivering in spades in terms of acting and chemistry. This is what I wanted Uncontrollably Fond to deliver and it couldn’t until the last two episodes, and here it’s happening right off the bat with even more excitement than Park Hye Ryun‘s last drama Pinocchio. The ratings for the night came in with MBC‘s Hospital Ship still in the lead midway through airing at 9.8% and 10.6%, Sleeping second with 7.2% and 9.2%, and poor Manhole with 1.9% heading into the final episode.
