Press Conference and Final Set of Previews for While You Were Sleeping with Suzy and Lee Jong Seok

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.

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.
