While Lee Min Ho is in the military, his fans have something to support on the small screen. His girlfriend Bae Suzy, who is mononymously named Suzy, is set to star on the SBS series “While You Were Sleeping,” which will premiere on Sept. 27, Wednesday.
On Sept. 22, Friday, Suzy discussed “While You Were Sleeping” during a press conference at the SBS headquarters in Seoul. The upcoming SBS series is about the possibility to change the course of a person’s life and the consequences that come with it, Yonhap News quoted the K-pop girl group missA member as saying.

On “While You Were Sleeping,” Suzy plays a 29-year-old unemployed journalist who can see unfortunate events before they happen. The character used to be a fan of a 29-year-old rookie prosecutor named Jung Jae Chan (Lee Jong Suk).
