Lee Jong-seok’s awkward social skills in While You Were Sleeping
In dreamy character posters for SBS’s upcoming While You Were Sleeping, Lee Jong-seok (W—Two Worlds) thinks, “No one would be able to believe… the future I changed,” and almost in reply Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond) thinks, “There’s no one else… but you.”
This supernatural legal romance is centered around a story about a woman (Suzy) who sees tragic futures in her dreams and the prosecutor (Lee Jong-seok) who tries his best to prevent those futures from happening. His character is a prosecutor in the investigative bureau, who simply can’t seem to make friends. As we can see from these stills and his colleagues’ annoyed looks, he doesn’t seem to get it when it comes to human relationships.
While his fellow colleagues are engaged in pre-meal prayer, he reaches over them to grab food. In another still, everyone stares at him with omg-did-he-just-really? looks on their faces. It’s no wonder that his bureau teammates, who consist of Lee Ki-young (The King Loves), Bae Hye-sun (Falsify), Min Sung-wook (School 2017), and Go Sung-hee (Jealousy Incarnate), just don’t like him.
On the other hand, we have Lee Sang-yub (This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair) who is the complete opposite of Lee Jong-seok. Lee Sang-yub’s character was a previous investigative bureau prosecutor like Lee Jong-seok, but he left that career for a more lucrative and successful one as a prosecution-specialist lawyer. He’s a gregarious golden boy, admired and loved by everyone who knows him. He’s shown smiling even while visiting his past workplace, and greeting everyone with concern and care. There’s a past relationship between Lee Jong-seok and Lee Sang-yub, and I’m curious to see how the loner and the popular kid of the prosecutor community know each other.
