K-Drama Reaction: While You Were Sleeping | Episodes 7-8

You’ll find the people you can trust in the most unexpected place and circumstance.

Little Detail Matters

Han Woo-tak (Jung Hae-in) has adjusted well with his newfound skills. He prevented a horrible thing from happening just by changing a small detail from his dreams. He also discovered he isn’t the only one seeing visions in his dreams. Jung Jae-chan (Lee Jong-suk) and Nam Hong-joo (Bae Suzy) told Woo-tak about their own experiences and a peculiar trio was created.

I like Woo-tak as a character. It seems like he filled in a gap I didn’t know was there from the start. I’m hoping he won’t have any romantic feelings with Hong-joo because I like their dynamics as it is.

Three Good Men

For some reasons, Hong-joo and Woo-tak had the same dream about Jae-chan’s investigation of Park Jun-mo’s case but with different outcomes. They decided to follow Woo-tak’s dream and let the investigator Choi Dam-dong (Kim Won-hae) handle the interview. It leads to Jun-mo’s prosecution and at the same time, Jae-chan finally winning the respect of his colleagues. I think this is just the start of Jae-chan, Hong-joo, and Woo-tak working together to prevent unfortunate things from happening. It made me more excited to see more of these characters.

The Pianist’s Freedom

I’m a little bit sad that Park So-yoon (Kim So-hyun) would not be part of the rest of the series. I love her interactions with Hong-joo and somehow, wishes her to end up with Jae-chan’s brother, Jung Seung-won (Shin Jae-ha). I’ll pray to dramagenies we’ll see her again at the end of the series.

Maknae’s Episode Verdict

It’s just the first case but these episodes were a thrill to watch like we were already in the climax. I think this is just a taste of what would happen throughout the series – scenes that’ll enthrall its viewers because of exciting heartbreaking, and lighthearted moments.

Afterthoughts of a Dongsaeng

– I doubted Suzy and Lee Jong-suk’s chemistry but they look good onscreen.

– Kim Won-hae has once again shown he is one brilliant character actor.

– I  don’t usually comment on filming techniques of dramas I review but While You Were Sleeping‘s cinematography is superb.
