Lee Ki-woo, 2PM’s Junho offered roles in tvN’s Memory

Casting is in full swing for tvN’s upcoming drama Memory, with new casting possibilities cropping up one after the other. Lee Sung-min (Misaeng) was secured early on to headline as the lead character, and on the heels of Kim Ji-soo and Song Sun-mi joining just the other day, we now have two more potential additions.

First up is Lee Ki-woo, who has been offered the role of a third-generation chaebol in the drama about a lawyer with Alzheimer’s who decides to defend one last case, who struggles with a failing memory while realizing the value of family and love. Lee Sung-min would be that lead, and if Lee Ki-woo signs on, it’ll be a whole Miss Korea reunion, with those two and also Song Sun-mi. Can we have the rest of the BB cream crew too, being all nerdy and bumbling? For old times’ sake?

A sharp, wealthy chaebol is certainly a role I can picture Lee Ki-woo in, although I don’t think buttoned-up and chic is actually his best type of role. I didn’t find Lee Ki-woo that interesting in Miss Korea playing the sharp businessman (or in A Star’s Lover playing another sharp businessman), but I did find him much more appealing after Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, where all of a sudden he seemed like a different actor, all cheeky and interesting. He has a tendency to go full-on wooden when there isn’t much to work with, so let’s hope the character is a well-fleshed-out one.

Meanwhile, 2PM idol Junho is also up for a role, a hoobae lawyer who assists Lee Sung-min’s character. I’d tell you more, but that’s all we’ve got.

Memory comes from PD Park Chan-hong of Devil and Resurrection (also Shark, but we can just forget that was on his resumé), and is set to follow Signal, the detective-crime thriller from the Misaeng PD starring Lee Je-hoon and Kim Hye-soo. It will premiere in March as a Friday-Saturday drama.

Honestly, I don't care for the premise. But then they court such awesome or promising actors so I'm forced to tune in. Really happy to see Yunho in dramaland. He's the one that should be getting lead roles from 2pm.

As far as I am concerned, he is the only one from that group with the least bit of acting talent.

If not the rest of the BB cream gang, how about at least a guest appearance by Lee Seon-kyun?

Junho was really the best thing about Twenty, well him and Lee Yubi anyway.

There was nothing for his character to really do in Miss Korea and honestly I felt like the character was barely part of the show. I'd hope this would be an interesting character for the guy, too.

And omg, I really did confuse this with that Yoo Seung Ho drama lol. This one sounds a bit more interesting. But we'll see.

Miss the BB cream crew; wouldn't have thought that a romcom about a beauty pageant and cosmetics company would draw me in so much, but yeah, LKW's character was wasted.

Not really, YSH's lawyer role loses his memory out of the blue, not due to Alzheimer's.

Why can't we get Lee Ki Woo in a lead for romcom? PLEASE. Tick tock people, I can't wait forever!

And I don't agree that Lee KiWoo was TOTALLY wasted in Miss Korea. Although I would have liked him to have a bigger and more interesting role, he did a good job of playing the fine line between good guy and bad guy, he kept me guessing. I just love him and look forward to whatever he does next.
