Star cameos continue for While You Were Sleeping with Yoon Kyun-sang and Lee Sung-kyung
It always gives me warm fuzzies inside to see actors and actresses supporting their friends with cameo appearances. So I’m doubly excited to see Yoon Kyun-sang (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People) and Lee Sung-kyung (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju) make cameo appearances in solidarity for their friend Lee Jong-seok’s (W—Two Worlds) drama comeback While You Were Sleeping.
It’s a supernatural romance between a girl who can see the future through dreams, played by Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond), and a rookie prosecutor, played by Lee Jong-seok, who tries to stop her nightmarish premonitions from becoming a reality. While You Were Sleeping is a fully pre-produced drama that’s supposed to end filming in July in order to concentrate on post-production for their fall premiere date.
The specific roles that Yoon Kyun-sang and Lee Sung-kyung are playing were not announced, but I’m hoping that maybe a cluelessly adorable Dr. Yoon-do (Yoon’s character from Doctors) might make a special appearance because both of them worked together with While You Were Sleeping’s PD Oh Choong-hwan on his most recent hit drama Doctors. Or Yoon could also reprise his role from Pinocchio (also written by Park Hye-ran), where he was a serial murderer and brother to Lee Jong-seok’s character, though that would be a heartbreaking cameo. They’ll likely play entirely new characters, but I’m happy to see so many reunions all around!
SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama While You Were Sleeping will premiere in September, after Reunited Worlds, which is scheduled after currently-airing Suspicious Partner.
