I have inordinate amount of admiration for Lee Sung Min. He is a fantastic actor and The King 2 Hearts was where I saw him first but it was Misaeng that turned me into a HUGE fan. Now he is heading back to tvN for his next small screen role as he has confirmed to star in upcoming human drama titled Memory. The actor was last seen in period mystery film The Guest. On a surface level, the plot of Memory sounds a lot like another forthcoming show Remember starring Yoo Seung Ho but it looks like the latter is more on the thriller side whereas we are going for more drama and emotions with Memory.
Lee Sung Min will play a lawyer who suffers from Alzheimer’s and puts his all to fight his final case before losing all of his memories. In the process, he will learn the value of family and life. The show comes from the acclaimed team behind shows like Resurrection, Devil, and Shark and although I haven’t seen either of three, the first two have been lauded a lot while Shark was a major disappointment.
Memory will take a long time to finally air as it will take over the slot vacated by Lee Je Hoon thriller Signal and that puts the premiere date sometime in March.
