Lee Jong-suk is confirmed to play a prosecutor role in an upcoming drama series slated to air next year, according to its producer iHQ Monday.
The news came after a media report Monday morning that Lee and singer-actress Bae Suzy are likely to star in a drama series tentatively titled “While You Were Sleeping.” Suzy has not been confirmed yet.
Lee will play a prosecutor that prevent predictions by his partner, reportedly to be played by Suzy, from becoming reality.
The script will be written by Park Hae-ryun, who also worked on SBS’ series “I Can Hear Your Voice” and “Pinocchio” both of which Lee starred in.
The cast for “While You Were Sleeping” will be confirmed by the end of this year and production will start early next year, according to iHQ. The broadcaster of the series has yet to be determined.
