Lee Jong-seok moves in next door in While You Were Sleeping
The supernatural legal SBS drama While You Were Sleeping is looking much more rom-comy in the second teaser than it did in the first. Along with the newest teaser, a couple of stills have been released showing Mr. Hotshot Prosecutor Lee Jong-seok (W—Two Worlds) moving in next door to our clairvoyant heroine, played by Suzy (Uncontrollably Fond). He shows up with a rice cake in his hands looking adorable as always, following the tradition to bring your new neighbors rice cakes as a sign of good will and future good relations.
This newly released second teaser, though, is what really got me thinking maybe this drama will be lighter than I thought. From the first impression and the synopsis about a heroine who’s plagued with nightmarish dreams of other people’s tragic futures and the prickly prosecutor who would try to prevent those tradegies, I thought While You Were Sleeping would be going the melo route. However, the new teaser is bright and funny as it opens with copy written on clear blue skies: “I dreamt a sweet dream.”
In the first scene, we see Suzy waking up with a firm conviction that Lee Jong-seok is in love with her. He clearly is in disagreement; he rants and raves about how Suzy is obviously delusional and narcissistic. But then it’s shown that he’s actually the one with a prince syndrome, as he goes around taking selfies and reaffirming his own brilliance to himself in empty interrogation rooms as his team watches him from the other side of the one-way window.
As he’s called into a meeting with his superiors, they let him know that he still has a long ways to go. The copy reads: “It finds you like a dream in the middle of the daily grind.” Lee Jong-seok is down in the dumps as he struggles to figure out what to do, when suddenly out of nowhere, Suzy pops up beside him.
She’s like his personal vitamin C, patching him up when he gets hurt or being the shoulder he can sleep on. She lets him know: “I wasn’t lying when I said I saw the future.” The teaser ends as Lee Jong-seok has finally grown accustomed to her and looks for her across the way. In his voiceover he’s much more uplifted, telling us that he has “found a person who cheers me on.” Waah, so cute! When can I get my hands on this drama?
Darn, it’s still two weeks away. Wednesday-Thursday drama While You Were Sleeping begins on September 27, after Reunited Worlds ends.
