While You Were Sleeping is one of the most anticipated Korean dramas of 2017. It was first reported on September 27, 2017 but many netizens have commented that they can’t wait to watch it soon. While You Were Sleeping was Bae Suzy’s solo project in 2017 after last year’s success with the drama Uncontrollably Fond along with Kim Wo Bin.

Plot Story While You Were Sleeping
Broadly as directed on the Asianwiki website, the plot of While You Were Sleeping will range between two main characters, Nam Hong Joo, played by Bae Suzy and Jung Jae Chan, played by Lee Jong Suk. Both figures have the ability to see the future, Nam Hong Joo is a former journalist who is able to see possible accidents in the future while Jung Jae Chan is a prosecutor who tries hard to prevent such accidents from happening. Jung Jae Chan’s own character is portrayed as very cool but slowly changes when his destiny relates to Nam Hong Joo because he becomes a figure willing to do anything to stop Hong Joo’s dreams. Not unlike her character in Uncontrollably Fond, Suzy’s character as Hong Joo is a cheerful figure despite having an unscinged way of life as well as a dark secret she tries to hide.
So just like Uncontrollably Fond, it looks like Bae Suzy is re-honing his acting in the gloomy romance drama that certainly makes fans have to be ready with a box of tissues before watching it and hope that somehow it ends with a happy ending because Uncontrollably Fond does not end happily at all.
