Yoon Kyun Sang and Lee Sung Kyung Make Adorable Couples Cameo in Flagging While You Were Sleeping

I finally figured out the flaw of SBS Wed-Thurs drama While You Were Sleeping, and the reason why ratings aren’t higher and are in fact fading again. The drama’s two flaws are familiarity, both in screenwriter Park Hye Ryun‘s writing style and storyboard, and in how the male lead Lee Jong Seok feels like he’s playing a copied version of his role in previous dramas. The stories still interest me but there is a noticeable lack of excitement and urgency, and in fact feels like the drama started off with a bang and is now trailing to a whimper. Suzy‘s character is way more interesting and she’s quite charming and warm to watch, but having her try the same have a dream try to change the future routine has gotten repetitive. So the highlight for me now is seeing more famous face cameos and coming this week are stars Yoon Kyun Sang and Lee Sung Kyung playing an adorably self-absorbed and lovey dovey couple that runs into the OTP at a field and jostle to take the best selcas. Love love the expressions they make ahahahaha! Continue reading
