Jang Nara and Seo In-gook’s icy partnership begins

Romance blossoming over murder and mayhem seems to be the trend these days, and here comes another detective couple to join the ranks. KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama I Remember You has released new stills and a first teaser that… well… doesn’t really show much of anything. It’s a teaser that tells me more about the drama production’s schedule than it does about the drama, and all I can say is, I hope that’s not their idea of a good teaser.

The crime-thriller-meets-romance drama from the writer of Protect the Boss and the PD of God of the Workplace stars Seo In-gook as a cold and haughty elite profiler who can size anyone up in an instant and doesn’t play well with others. Jang Nara is a detective who has been observing him for mysterious reasons unknown, and they end up having to be partners on a special task force.

Lee Chun-hee is the perfectly perfect law-school educated detective who leads the task force, and he’s described as an amusing character with a bit of a puffed-up ego that’s played for laughs. He’s used to winning at everything because he’s lived a charmed life, but the first time he’s ever been out-matched is when he meets Seo In-gook, who’s his subordinate but better at everything, and an ass about it to boot.

I can see that rivalry being a fun part of the show, and the partnership has potential as long as there are other sides to the hero than just cold and implacable all the time. I already like the sound of Chun-hee’s character better, but we’re told that the drama will have sweetness and humor along with the thrills, and I’m sure that Seo In-gook will find a way to make the hero likable despite what’s on paper.

The show’s first teaser is just a serious of phrases, and I’m interpreting them as things Jang Nara is saying about Seo In-gook’s character, since she’s the one who’s been stalking him. The flashing words read: “Indifferent, cold eyes, rude manner of speaking, sexy brains, like a monster… Despite that, I remember you.” Other hidden phrases include: “A child who has pain like mine,” “You ignored me,” “Like war,” “Don’t run away,” “I always trust you,” and “I’m watching you.” As with most things when it comes to this drama, it’s a mystery what it all adds up to.

I Remember You follows Who Are You–School 2015 and premieres June 22.

I already love the second lead more than the first. But we'll see how live action can change that - if it can, that is.

I had so many doubts on JN-SIG's pairing but seeing them in one frame makes me feel a lot settled. They don't look like they'd have some intense chemistry but they do look good together. Hopefully the pairing will gel too because I love that new look JN is sporting and really want to see this for her.

I do think JN looks like SIG's noona although she's very pretty and baby-faced. My concern was my inability to see them as romantic partners. Seo In Guk just looks so young! Of course, I see her with the second lead, LCH in a heart beat.

From the teaser it seems that maybe she's known SIG since childhood. Hopefully there will be a VERY interesting reason why she's followed him for so long.

The bit about SIG's rivalry reminds me of his rivalry with Lee soo hyuk in highschool savvy, it was adorable, petty, and utterly great.

I hope this one will be equally entertaining~

awww so happy to see them together in one frame <3

on the pairing, im not sure if i can tell a couple's chemistry just by pic, but i believe in SIG and JNR acting chops. both worked well in their previous dramas. hope IRY writer and director give them lots lots meat and bone on the script and the execution thus the casts can go right to the top!

thus said, anything with Gukkie on it, im IN! <3<3<3

Maybe she's his long lost sister.
She stalking him to be sure he is actually the brother she misplaced.

I think the found-out-we-are-siblings-after-we've-fallen-in-love trope went out of fashion years ago. So since they explicitly said that the two leads will be falling in love, the chances of this happening is close to nothing.

Will Seo In Guk have a brother in this drama? I would love it for Yook Sung Jae to play Seo In Guk's brother! When I watch School 2015, Sung Jae really reminds me of In Guk.

there a short interview clip up on youtube with the pair talking. Jang Nara I must say looks like a older sister with a cheeky younger brother, but as they not in character mode, I have no worries the pair well step it up once the drama starts, it is good enough they feeling comfortable with each other and it is not as if both have not playing with younger/older romantic partners before. Seo In Guk will learn a lot from JN I am sure.

Oh My Gosh! Chun-hee and that lisp of his. I find him ridiculously hot.

SIG is also hot, not gonna lie, but Chun-hee is all grown up.

Wait, two hotties? Jang Nara you one lucky girl!

some might bite me for saying this but she looks a tad a bit for him. She is baby faced but is starting to show her age though.
ill still check it out though since i like her acting and seo in guk has a nice voice too.
