“We will wrap up all of the necessary logistics by the end of the year, and kick off production next year,” said iHQ in a statement.

The series will be written by Park Hye-ryun, who worked on Suzy’s acting debut production “Dream High” in 2011 and will be directed by Oh Choong-hwan of “Doctors” and “My Love from the Star.”

Both Suzy and Lee have had a busy, successful year.

Suzy, of K-pop group MissA, gained global fame through KBS’ romantic drama “Uncontrollably Fond,” which also featured Kim Woo-bin, while actor and model Lee rose to stardom again with hit fantasy series “W,” which co-starred Han Hyo-joo.

“While You Were Sleeping” is about a woman who is able to foresee unfortunate events in her dreams and a prosecutor who tries everything in his power to prevent them from actually happening.
