While You Were Sleeping Storyline

‘While You Were Sleeping’ begins with Nam Hong-joo. She experienced a nightmare about her father’s death when she was a tiny girl. Later on, the same thing happened to her father. Her nightmares became more frequent as she got older, and though she always knew how the accident or other event would play out, she never knew when it would actually occur.

She attempts to help the people in her dreams, but the timing is off. The situation becomes more dire when she begins having nightmares about her mother’s and her own deaths. After having a series of nightmares in which she was killed, she quit her career as a journalist and moved in with her mother to a remote, peaceful area where they would be safe from harm.

Prosecutor Jung Jae-chan is surrounded by corrupt individuals who hope to corrupt him. Since everyone else is on board with unlawful activities like evidence fabrication, they have made much more progress than he has. The one who killed Hong-joo’s father was also the one who killed Jae-chan’s. Hong-joo saves Jae-chan’s life after she saw him on the verge of death after an incident. Death’s plan for Jae-chan is derailed, and as a result, Jae-chan gains Hong-joo’s ability. He, too, is starting to have dreams in which he witnesses someone else’s passing.
