This one’s going to be a popular one and if because of anything it’s primarily due to the leads Lee Jong Suk and Suzy.
The first teaser to anticipated Korean drama ‘While You Were Sleeping’ was just released recently and gives us the first glimpses of Lee Jong Suk and Suzy as a pair in their new project together.
Just based on this teaser alone it looks like the drama will be really pretty so not only will we be gifted with beautiful faces to look at but the cinematography will also be visually pleasing which is… always good. I’m not the biggest fan of neither Lee Jong suk or Suzy so I’m not so sure if I’m going to give this drama a try. I lost my trust and joy in watching Suzy after her last project with Kim Woo Bin in ‘Uncontrollably Fond’ where even my love for Kim Woo Bin wasn’t enough for me to stay (also how funny is it that after working with Kim Woo Bin Suzy’s moved on to working with his School 2013 friend Lee Jong Suk?). I’m not so sure how Suzy is going to do in ‘While You Were Sleeping’, but based on the teaser it doesn’t seem like things should be that bad. Arguably, even if her acting doesn’t improve much from what we last saw her in, I assume she has enough star power to pull in the ratings and success for the drama along with star Lee Jong Suk.
Suzy plays Nam Hong-joo who can sense accidents that occur in the future through her dreams and then Lee Jong Suk plays Jung Jae-chan who works as a prosecutor to prevent those accidents from happening. The premise alone sounds interesting and if written creatively and intelligently the drama could be a hit. The rest of the potential for success would fall upon the main leads to deliver and as seen in this teaser alone, maybe that success isn’t that far in reach.
‘While You Were Sleeping’ is set to premiere on September 27, 2017 on SBS.
