Lee Jong-seok gets a sunbae and a little brother for While You Were Sleeping

Casting continues on SBS’s upcoming drama While You Were Sleeping, with actress Go Sung-hee (Spy, My Beautiful Bride) signing on and Kim Min-jae (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim, The Lonely Shining Goblin) in talks to join. The series will be a supernatural legal show, set around a woman who dreams of accidents that will befall people and the prosecutor who works to prevent those events from materializing.

Lee Jong-seok (W–Two Worlds) was cast early on as the prosecutor lead, while Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond) has been confirmed as the leading lady. The drama marks Lee Jong-seok’s third project with scriptwriter Park Hye-ryun, with whom he’d previously worked together on Pinocchio and I Hear Your Voice, both of which were engaging, upbeat contemporary romances with slight paranormal bents.

Go Sung-hee is set to play Lee Jong-seok’s hoobae from university but his sunbae as a prosecutor. She may have a soft, cute appearance and sweet way of talking, but she’s a sharp prosecutor with a high indictment rate and a knack for getting suspects to confess.

Kim Min-jae, meanwhile, is up to play Lee Jong-seok’s younger brother, described as full of charm and appeal. Still in high school, his dream is to be a police officer like their father, but his grades aren’t quite good enough. The two brothers live together, and the younger one enjoys domestic work and taking care of the household, which sounds like an adorable bromance in the making.

Well, I can’t say I love everyone in the cast, but I’ll do my best, for the sake of this writer. I can handle Suzy even if I’ve only ever thought her a serviceable actress at best, because she has a likable aura that goes a long way with her. And I don’t mind Kim Min-jae that much; he’s been steadily building up a resume with small parts in lots of dramas, such as the Goryeo king in Goblin and the stalwart nurse assistant in Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim (other credits include My Little Baby, Because It’s the First Time, Twenty Again, and Persevere Gu Hae-ra). But Go Sung-hee… She’s been dull as dirt in everything I’ve seen her in (her credits: Miss Korea, Records of a Night Watchman, Spy, and My Beautiful Bride), and she has essentially the opposite of screen presence.

On the upside, also cast are Lee Sang-yub (This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair) and Jung Hae-in (Night Light), both of whom are welcome additions. Lee Sang-yub has a connection with the drama’s director, PD Oh Choong-hwan, having put in a memorable guest appearance on the PD’s last drama, Doctors.

While You Were Sleeping will be entirely pre-produced and will air on SBS later this year.

disagree so much about Go Seung Hee... She is decent in my beautiful bride and Spy. Lee Jong Suk is more unbearable to watch.

She's average in Miss Korea and Jealousy Incarnate (very short guesting only though) but Kim Min Jae was quite bad in Twenty Again (paired up with the horrible idol lead, their scenes in TA are automatic FF for me). Though he wasn't as bad in RDTK so dunno maybe he improved a bit.

With Suzy in the mix, this drama's casting has been disappointing.

I agree. I didn't like her until "My Beautiful Bride." I didn't even like her in the beginning but she kind of grew on me enough to admit that she was doing a good job.
I think the pairing helped too. Kim Moo-yul, was fantastic in one manning that show.

Ditto that. I gotta admit that while I love KWB, he's not that much of an actor but he is definitely improving like on Uncontrollably Fond. That at least gives a slightly different character other than the constant bad boy charade.

Woo Bin was great in School 2013, he was big sparkling balloon in The Heirs, hitting right emotions and giving Young Do unique flavor (dude survived and made Young Do favorite of many despite dull writing), he was okay in The Techinans (due to directing and genre) and hilarious in Twenty. After watching him in everything, I think his "he plays only bad boy" complains mostly myth, rather than truth. There is far more actors who plays far more similar to their previous roles characters, than him. Some of them even DB's favorites.

Pls leave them... let them be hating. People really take their hate to the next level, till they start sounding illogical. Unbearable... REALLY?

Yes, both Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin are way overhyped actors ...but unbearable? Worse than Go Seung hee, Kim Min Jae, or Suzy? That's a little ridiculous to think.

Why is it that when people see things as overhyped they feel the need to drag it so far down? It's like when Frozen was popular and a bunch of people started calling it "the worst Disney movie ever". Or when DotS hit big and people said it was one of the worst dramas of 2016. Overhyped things are usually fine. Not great, not terrible...just fine.

"... who will defeat the bad guy with that “smart” look."

Lol...

That's LJS's "swoon" glance.

Known to drop women's panties with the slightest provocation.

It's that.... oh my gawd... he's only 22 and is a genius doctor and can perform the "SAVOR" procedure but yet he has that hip "I don't give a sh-t" grin and that cocky swagger and that tousled hair which is so unexpected in a doctor.... which is somehow even hotter... oh gawd oh gawd... I'm wet... DOCTOR let me be your NURSE! ... look.

At least, such is the casual (and not entirely serious) assessment of this male viewer. Fact? Projection? Delusion? Who knows...

;)

Both LJS and KWB maybe not everyone's cup of tea. But to call them "most overrated" or "unbearable to watch". Are you serious people? This guys worked hard to achieve their status in industry and they still work as hard, constantly improving and getting better and better in their craft. For better I'm not LJS fan at all, but he is good in whatever he is doing (he needs some mix in his usual copy-paste characters). I love KWB and actully think he is underrated.

And he is underrated imo, he carried W on his own (the plot was good as well but we dont give him enough credits for KC and his monologues) and saved the ratings of the shitfest that dr stranger was. For a 27 yr old, thats not bad at all

Yet you cared to click open this article and comment. You elaborated in your comment below what you meant with the word ’overrated’ so I arrived at the conclusion that you’re stanning some other actor (possibly Park Bo Gum) and you think that they deserve more popularity than LJS and KWB. That was your opinion and this is my opinion, and I’m not even fan of either of them. Just saying...

@endo you conveniently skipped my argument that no other hallyu star his age is hard carrying any show. Lol its funny coz you have nothing to say, both W and dr strager are rating winners so why bring Dong yi ??

And did you just compare a 2010 saguek to a 2016 scifi drama

Times have changed , ratings in double digits are good now especially since W is targetted towards people below 30s. And the amount of buzz it created was huge in SK and abroad. Be ignorant I guess :)

Also W is a hit drama which LJS carried, noone can deny that, not even NATE users who hate him. For a 27 yr old guy thats good enough when his peers relies on big names like jun ji hyun
Most kdramas are succesful collabs between two leads, VERY FEW were HARD CARRIED by a single lead. So I would say LJS is quite admirable

0

Same with me! ?I've tried to finish watching W but stop at episode 6 because I can't stand watching LJS!

The funny thing is when UF and W were airing, I talked with my sisters about what if Suzy and LJS play a drama together and now they will!! Not because I like them as a couple but I think it will be interesting to see their "haughty air" on screen.

I believe in writer. She has that ability to cover her actors weakness. LJS was pretty green in I Hear Your Voice; 90% he looked just the same, but was good in emotional moments. I just hope unlike Pinocchio she stops making her leads cry so much. I've got annoyed with it, especially since both Dal Po and In Ha were mostly reactionary rather active characters. She also should work on second half of her story, because she trends to drag it to boredom. Other than that, I really believe in her ability, to write interesting story. And I watch her dramas mainly because she has some sparks in her heroines, her stories predictable but entertaining and they has that "youth" feeling in them. Her dramas good, tasteful watch. And unlike LKH, who gave Suzy hard (and miscast) role, with story that doesn't suit both KWB and Suzy's aura (they could do much more as a rom-com couple), PHR's style, I bet, will be more in her comfort zone. Just like LJS always in his most comfortable zone, whenever he works with her.

To be honest, he really isn't a Daesang material, but well, popularity always beat quality eh? Peace.

Most Hallyu actors are overrated but there are better and worse ones so they aren't all the same. I'd put Lee Jong Seok as in the middle. He can act and if put in suitable roles, he will do well. It's only after watching him in several dramas that I found that he doesn't change much from character to character. Still, he can at least emote unlike some others.

Actually, I always find young Korean actors/actress more talented than those of, say, Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

If you think Korean young actors/actresses (above) are overhyped, do not venture into Chinese dramas. Because fangirls will think these young actors are godly thespians of sorts as long as they look good *cough*YangYang*cough*ZhengShuang*cough*

This guy really only trust Park Hye Ryun for his drama choice. Two times he change writer, all of them start good, yet got bad at the end of the drama. Park Hye Ryun give his character bad start, but then his arc always end in satisfying manner. So, work as much as you want with her as long you are happy and satisfied with the script :)

@Rene, you guys for sure have strong victim mentality and love to create conspiracy theory behind "poor LJS" (the ones who believe it. I'm from now only addressing to you/them. I'm not generalizing anyone). His k-fans recently freaked out and called journalist anti (guess what, the same one lol), when Suzy was announced as his potential partner, which turned out to be just truth. More than that PHR actually choose Suzy first to act in her drama. There is plenty articles about plenty artists, that criticize them. Shit happens with everyone, they're public persons in hard place like K-entertaiment. There is shit articles about SidusHQ artists too. Should I blame YG, well known, shady and aggressive mediaplay powerhouse? As I said it's not that deep. They two times produced two of his dramas. You said it right, SidusHQ is a business company and they love money. And if you also believe, that SidusHQ has something to do with comments (that also bash KWB and Suzy) then you nothing more but delusional. As fan it probably hurts you, whenever you see something negative about your "oppa" (I do have from time to time same reaction), but you guys more obsessed with hating Sidus, rather than first educate yourself and use some common sense and good old logic first. As someone who always was there, whenever LJS fans freaked out about SidusHQ, I thought you guys overreact, I still you guys overreact. Also, you should't mentioning SBS, it reminded me how mean some of his fans were to KWB.

Haters,beefers.all ye haters should venture into acting instead of bashing the guy.if you are asked to name your favourite actors and actresses,im sure that the names you'll mention are those who dont have an ounce of talent.so shut up and go do something meaningful with your life

Ah, my favourite actor is Seo Inguk, and my favourite actress is Gong Hyo Jin. Does these two names sound untalented to you? :)

Matter of perspectives. How would you feel if someone goes to Seo In Guk’s or Gong Hyo Jin’s casting articles and say that their acting skills are overrated? And they’d just say that it’s their honest opinion?

Hemmm, the first commenter above mentioned that she/he are sure that other persons favourite actor/actress doesn't have any ounce of talents, that's what was written and I guess I've just want to highlight that not everyone favourite are untalented or popular only, and I am just writing down the names out of the moment, and yes I do agree, it is a matter of perspectives. See my point here? :)

That’s why I said *matter of perspectives*. Someone might not personally like SIG or GHJ acting style/choice of roles, or these actors might simply not attract them. If these said people already had biased opinion and commented on your favorite actor's (but their not so favorite) casting article for some funny reason, wouldn’t their fans, who eagerly wait for their fave's news, get defensive? I do get your point, but you can’t blame these fans, especially if the comments are repetitive to the point they feel defensive. Just saying ˆ_ˆ

I had never been impressed me with Seo Inguk acting and I think he always played the same character and I had never been connected with Gong Hyo Jin's acting- both are overrated.

The most unbearable to watch for me would be Suzy. I believe being an actress is not the thing for her. She is beautiful and has the nice aura. But still for me she does not have the acting talent.

LOVE and is super excited to see Lee Jong-seok because I know he's gonna rock it, but I'm so deflated with Suzy's casting. She's stunning, has a lovely voice and is pretty charismatic, but I don't think I can bare her as an actress... yet? Granted, I've only seen her in a couple of shows (Dream High and Big Disappointment) and she was actually okay in those. I've never watched her as the main lead, though, BUT yesterday, when I was watching Entertainment Weekly, they had this clip of Suzy (I think it was from Uncontrollably Fond) crying and telling someone not to go or that she was afraid they wouldn't come back or something along those lines, and I was just like, "Omg, she's so awkward and bad." In that short clip, i felt nothing but cringeworthiness, which is not good. It's hard to be critical without sounding like a hater, but what's done is done. Maybe she'll surprise us!

lmao yikes @ some of these comments but go off if it'll make you feel better about yourself I guess! Taking time to be deliberately rude about someone I don't like... can't relate...

Lee Jong Suk remains unbothered, you guys are giving him so much relevancy!

Anyways, Suzy is such a beauty and her new mv is brilliant but I'm not too keen on her as an actress. I do hope she has improved her skills for this role!

Yea, I've always been more of the bent that time is more productively spent building people you do like up rather than on tearing those you dislike down.

But, as it turns out, not everyone agrees with me.

Shucks...

Score one for diversity of opinion.

Suzy fan , you should be the last person to talk about misplaced credits considering how Suzy is a product of really succesful mediaplay. Knetz love her. During UF it was KWB who acted his ass off, but suzy got the free ride, and literally all comments were about her beauty. Isnt that the most annoying thing ever.
I dont see KWB fans here complaing that Suzy stole the spotlight in terms of comments. And thats coz they are confident in him. So stop being hypocritic ,please :)

"but suzy got the free ride" or is it KWB?

I'm just stating the truth. Are you going to agree if a show credits Suzy? Of course not. Lol.

It was actually LJS who got a free ride from Lee Bo Young and Park Shin Hye. Haha.

I MEAN I HAVE SEEN BOTH OF YOU BASH LJS BEFORE AND I HAVE RECEIPTS but this is a bit too much even for trolls like you

Suzy did get a free ride, KWB did all the acting in UF
Did you just compare her to LJS? What are you guys smoking, I wanna smoke it as well. And LJS got a free ride? Well sweethearts sorry to break your fantasy ,the world thinks otherwise. He is amazing in all the 3 shows you mentioned and everyone recognises that

LJS is a Grimae winner who was amazing in Hot young bloods and School 2013

How delusional , I am worried about you?

Huh? There are people that don't like Kim Min Jae!?...I honestly thought he was fantastic in Goblin as the young king. He did great as Nurse Park in RDTK (although they didn't give his character much meat, he worked with what he was given).

I'm so excited for him!

LJS is good in my books. I mean, there are FAR worse actors in the industry, LJS's acting isn't ground breaking but I'd say he really delivers with the roles he's given.

I dont mind actually, if he really copied Yeo Jingoo. Not everyone born with talents , and he is still learning. He just want to do well, and he might watch some actors'performance to help him, and unintentionally copied the style. As a learning process i will accept that. And he was not even the main cast.

Maybe it looks obvious because these two resemble each other.

i dont mind too and i didnt even realize it in the first place. he looks so intense with kim soo hyun in their scene and they deliver each time! i guess if people want to criticize, they will still find way to criticize like our own shining example Mr Lee Jong suk, from his face to his acting chops!

If someone makes a side by side comparison video showing that Min Jae indeed did copy expressions and body languages from Yeo Jin Gu then I'd believe it but it's kind of stretching it to say one actor copied expressions/body language of another when acting interpreting a given situation and its very plausible that any two actors may give the same expressions and feeling to the same situation.

I think LJS is an a-okay actor. Still of course not on par with handsome and veteran ajusshi actors (am talking about them crops of awesome above 30s Kdrama heavyweights) and I enjoyed his W2Ws. Suzy on the other hand.. guess she's passable as an actress but tbh, in every dramas where she acted, I can't seem to remember her characters nor her presence.

I've watched My Beautiful Bride and hell, the vengeance wrecking groom, Kim Moo Yeol was fantastic in every episode. GSH as his bride, she's okay. Not the best but I think she suits tht beautiful and dainty bride character who appeared to be hopeless but actually a strong woman in the inside. Her quiet support & sacrifices to spare her husband from the ugly truth of her very existence was admirable BUT of course it grated on my nerves tht she didn't come clean to her husband in the first place. Overall, I enjoyed the drama. I sometimes watch it every now and then, just to get myself a dose of Kim Moo Yeol in action. A little boyish charm but a manly man. Flower boys are good as eye candies but that's all there is to it. In the end, I still prefer manly men hehehehee..

I kept rewatching "War of the Arrows" because he is in with my other favorites, Park Hae-il, Ryoo Seung-ryong, Moon Chae-won, Lee Kyoung-young etc. (Awesome cast!)

He should be done filming "Daerib Forces." I wouldn't mind seeing him in a OCN drama again.
