Kim So-hyun to make special appearance in While You Were Sleeping
The cast for writer Park Hye-ryun’s new fantasy legal drama While You Were Sleeping already seems like a reunion tour from her past shows, with Lee Jong-seok (Pinocchio, I Hear Your Voice), Suzy (Dream High), and Shin Jae-ha (Page Turner, Pinocchio) signed on, but now it really feels complete with a special appearance from Kim So-hyun (Bring It On, Ghost), who was in two of the writer’s past dramas—she starred in Page Turner with Shin Jae-ha and kicked off I Hear Your Voice as teenage Lee Bo-young.
Kim So-hyun is currently shooting her upcoming sageuk Ruler–Master of the Mask with Yoo Seung-ho, but made the time for a cameo in While You Were Sleeping for writer Park. There’s no word yet on the length of her appearance and the role she’ll play, only that it’s important to the story.
Of course, it only makes me wish that she were in the whole drama (aaah, she could’ve had a loveline with Shin Jae-ha!), but maybe we can hope that it’ll be like her cameo in The Lonely Shining Goblin, where we saw her practically every week. What I really want is for her to headline Park Hye-ryun’s next drama, because she was so great as the sassy teenage heroine in I Hear Your Voice and the prickly genius pianist in Page Turner—a drama that I still wish could have a second life as a full-length miniseries.
While You Were Sleeping stars Suzy as a woman who sees future tragedies in her dreams, and Lee Jong-seok plays a prosecutor who fights to prevent these tragic dream visions from coming true. The hero lives with his high-schooler brother, played by Shin Jae-ha, who wants to become a police officer like their dad. Lee Sang-yub (This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair), Go Sung-hee (My Beautiful Bride), Jung Hae-in (Night Light), and Park Jin-joo (Jealousy Incarnate) co-star.
While You Were Sleeping starts shooting in March for a broadcast sometime this year on SBS.
