The highly anticipated team up of Lee Jong Suk and Suzy is finally happening! In fact, an insider revealed that their upcoming drama, titled "While You Were Sleeping," has started rolling just recently.

Although the production has began the first overall filming earlier, a source affiliated with Lee Jong Suk stated the actor is scheduled to join the team for his first day of shoot on Mar. 2 as per Soompi.

For "While You Were Sleeping," Lee Jong Suk will play as Jung Jae Chan, a rookie prosecutor who appears cold and serious. On the other hand, Suzy takes the role of Hong Ju, an ex-journalist who used to idolize Jung Jae Chan for his profession.

Suzy's character in "While You Were Sleeping" has the ability to foresee future incidents, while Lee Jong Suk will try to prevent these unfortunate events from happening in the present.

The upcoming SBS drama will be spearheaded by Oh Chung Hwan, who is known for producing "Doctors." Meanwhile, scriptwriter of "I Hear Your Voice" and "Pinocchio," Park Hye Ryun, will reunite with Lee Jong Suk in the pre-produced drama.

Lee Jong Suk hit the big time for his previous role as Kang Chul in "W." Although the production for the fantasy drama was more difficult compared to his previous projects, the actor said the whole experience was "also more rewarding," according to Allkpop.

After wrapping up "W," the 27-year-old actor started the three-month filming of his newest film "V.I.P." On the sidelines, Lee Jong Suk has been doing photo shoots here and there.

Not only that, he also appeared in the web series "7 First Kisses" alongside top actors Lee Min Ho, Park Hae Jin, Ji Chang Wook and more. Despite his busy schedule, Lee Jong Suk showed his support to Lee Sung Kyung by making a cameo appearance in "Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo."
