“While You Were Sleeping” Overtakes To The Top Of Mid-week K-Drama Race
Crossing the halfway mark of its run, While You Were Sleeping drops a sweet rain kiss for its faithful fans.
While You Were Sleeping knocks down the opponents of the tight Wednesday-Thursday Korean drama race with Jung Jae Chan’s (Lee Jong Suk) discovery that Nam Hong Joo (Bae Suzy) is the same girl he met in the funeral home when their fathers died because of a runaway soldier.
Before Jae Chan can have a happy reunion to the girl who saved his life 13 years ago, he gets shot by the dying father of the dead victim from his last case. Hong Joo, who also learned about her fated connection with Jae Chan, downplays the excitement of meeting him again, citing how it has been a scar in her life that she wants to forget.
But Jae Chan does not want to concede so he decides to find Hong Joo and brave the odds between them. At that same moment, she wakes up from her dream of him looking for her everywhere, so she rushes to the hospital and puts on an umbrella to shield the runaway patient.
Hong Joo chides him for planning to do an irrational act, and he figures out that she has seen it through her dreams. He assures that he empathized on the guilt she felt on almost letting him die in trying to save the brother of the man, who killed their fathers because he also hesitated in saving him that time.
The two make amends and when he asked her how she responded in her dream after laying his cards and what he feels about her, she tiptoes to give him a quick peck to which he returns with a heart-fluttering deep kiss under the pouring rain.
While You Were Sleeping is safely traipsing its flow, with a turning point that is a sure gift to the followers. Now we just have to wait if the momentum will be consistent up to the closing episodes.
Ha Ji Won’s Hospital Ship, Yoo Ji Tae’s Mad Dog and Lee Yeo Won’s Avengers Social Club are making the midweek drama battle interesting to watch since they are top-billed by reliable veteran actors. Aside from that, all current dramas have their own impressive story drive which reflects on the decent ratings as well.
