While You Were Sleeping – Kdrama Quotes

Korean Drama Quotes – While You Were Sleeping


♦ “I … believe you. Because it’s me, I can believe you.”

♦ “What was so special about me? What did you like so much about me? No! I was wrong. You hugged me after saving me. Then… was it at the bus stop? Or… when you brought me the rice cake?! Oh my goodness. So it was then! Did you fall in love with my voice? Goodness. Wait, that’s not it. Did you move next to my house because of me?”

♦ “If you can see the future in a dream. What will happen then?
That future, that time, that fate, can it be changed?”

♦ “Thank you for saying that you’ll believe me.”


♦ “Who’d believe me if I say I saw you in my dream… and that I came here to change what I saw in my dream… because you looked so sad in it. No one would believe that I changed your future.”

♦ “I don’t know why it had to be you. I told you there isn’t anyone. It’s just you.”
-Nam Hong Joo

“I’m sorry. You must’ve resented me a lot earlier at the substation. It’s all because I’m incompetent. Because I’m so incompetent, I have too many regrets. I just don’t want you to turn out like me. I want you… to have a much better life. I guess that’s why my expectations keep getting higher. I want you to be taller than me. I want you to own a car even if I commute by bus. I’ve never been on an airplane, but I want you to fly first class all the time. I started my career as a Grade Nine public official, so I want you to start at a higher level.”

♦ I’m curious of that one little detail I changed. Will that one little detail be able to prevent something horrible that’s going to happen?

♦ “Dad, I became a prosecutor as you wanted. I was so afraid of letting you down that I tried really hard. Sometimes I get too weary and I just want to run away. I guess that means I loved you, very much. And I found someone who shows me support like you did. It’s okay whether I make it or not. But even so, I still have this desire to want to make things right. Now that desire scares me. Before I get weary with that desire and before it becomes any bigger, I want to run away.”

♦ “Now, I have someone who wishes the best of me. If I do well or not, she’d tell me it’s okay. But I want to do well. Now I’m scared of that thought. Before that thought tires me out, before it gets bigger … I want to run away.”

♦ “Even if life gives you trials, do not be sad or angry. Your heart lives in the future. Your present is sad. Everything is a short moment. What passed, and what’s passing now…will be cherished in the future.”

♦ “It’d be amazing if time could flow backward, but what can we do? There’s no use in crying over spilled milk. You have a lot of time. You can fill up the glass again slowly. So don’t cry too much. Don’t beat yourself up for too long. But never forget what happened.”

♦ “Regrets are pointless, there’s no use crying over spilled milk. Time won’t flow backward for you. All you can do is to slowly fill the glass up again.”

♦ “Don’t blame yourself. Blame yourself but keep it short and remember it for a long time.” – Choi Dam Dong

♦ “There was a time when I thought it a blessing to know the future. But that blessing starved the anticipation of a gift, and broke the spirit to face a challenge, and turned off the signal of hope. A future that can’t be changed. Predetermined days. Those are other names for despair, and the loss of everything when you give up.”


♦ “Don’t beat yourself up for too long. But never forget what happened.” –  Prosecutor Jae Chan Jung,

♦ This all will pass.
This may look like something big.
When things pass, they are nothing.
You won’t believe it, but you will talk about things as if they’re some jokes.
So, tell yourself to not worry about things too much.

♦ “Regrets are pointless. there’s no crying over spilled milk. all you can do is slowly fill the glass up again.” –  Jung Jaechan

♦ “Anger can make things that are right, feel unbearable.”

♦ “Facial expressions can be deceiving. Sometimes we can read someone’s mood, thoughts, and feelings from their facial expressions like an open book. But some people can use their facial expressions like a mask that conceals their moods, thoughts, and feelings. Nevertheless, there are flashing moments that collapses the border between such deception and truth. The truth that no one could see. The truth that you didn’t want anyone to find out. There are brief moments when they’re revealed to the world. Let’s not close our eyes if we ever happen to face such moments. Don’t pretend you didn’t see it. Don’t avoid it. Face it squarely.”
