My verdict is out on the first two episodes of SBS drama While You Were Sleeping which is total and complete love. Its what I wished Uncontrollably Fond was, and I love Sleeping this much for the same reason UF failed to engage me at the start, namely Suzy. She was awkward in UF and played a difficult to connect with character, whereas in Sleeping she is warm and natural but most importantly I love her character to pieces. Everything about Hong Joo makes me want to squish her, from her prickly scrappy attitude in the beginning towards Jae Chan to how she’s completely on his side once she knows what he did to save her only based on a dream. I think Suzy’s even delivering a more engaging performance that Lee Jong Seok, for now, and their characters are less romantically stirring at this point and more like I want them to unite into a dynamic duo to stop crime and divert accidents. The second day episodes of Sleeping went up a bit in ratings but still in the single digits, and still behind time slot leader Hospital Ship.
