Nine months into to the year and I don’t think we’ve found the definitive 2017 drama. We had Goblin but it ended in January. Could this be it?
Here’s the summary from Wikipedia:
The drama is about a woman, Hong-joo (Bae Suzy), who can see unfortunate events in her dreams, and a prosecutor, Jae-chan (Lee Jong-suk) who does everything he can to prevent the woman’s dreams from coming true.
It has that supernatural aspect that works well for Lee Jong Suk and is written by Park Hye Ran who penned his hit I Can Hear Your Voice and Pinocchio. She also wrote the charming drama Page Turner which gives me confidence that this will be more interesting than the summary suggests. On the negative side, I am not as confident about Suzy’s acting skills and just hope it’s not distracting.
This one isn’t subbed:
The first teaser is melodramatic while the others are lighter so I suspect that like many dramas, it will start off light till they pile on the angst halfway through.
I will wait to watch a full episode before commenting on their chemistry.
While You Were Sleeping premieres on SBS on September 27th.
