Kim Se-jung dreams of sheep to ease her insomnia in Let Me Hear Your Song
“One sheep… two sheep…” Kim Se-jung (School 2017) counts in her poster for Let Me Hear Your Song. In the teaser-trailer, it’s revealed that her character suffers from insomnia, defined as “the inability to sleep despite conducive conditions being fulfilled.” Despite tossing and turning in bed, she can’t fall asleep, and pleads for someone to help her sleep.
So how did she end up with insomnia? Perhaps it’s linked to the murder case that is at the center of this mystery rom-com drama. According to the synopsis, her character is a timpanist suffers from insomnia AND amnesia that can be traced back to the day she witnessed a murder. But when she meets a strange tone-deaf man, played by Yeon Woo-jin (Priest), they begin investigating the truth together.
In contrast to the poster above, the one below shows Kim Se-jung sweetly smiling as she sleeps with a mini-Yeon Woo-jin serenading her (I’d give a left kidney to get myself one of those.). The copy says: “Evening call? This man… Who is he?”
He’s her night errand boy, of course, who is in charge of helping her sleep with his tone-deaf songs. By day, he’s a pianist who managed to enter the orchestra in a fantastic way. On the outside, he may seem as desolate as a desert, but inside he’s hot and passionate.
Stills of Lee Shi-won (Memories of the Alhambra), playing a psychiatrist with both brains and beauty, have also been released. She is a strong supportive cousin of Kim Se-jung’s who sometimes goes overboard and acts like a helicopter-cousin. Despite her gentle appearance, she has a bit of a potty mouth and a tough demeanor.
Monday-Tuesday KBS drama Let Me Hear Your Song, written by Kim Min-joo and directed by Lee Jung-mi (Cantabile Tomorrow), will begin in August 5.
