Remember—Son’s War: Episode 1

Remember—Son’s War is one of the many memory-related dramas as of late, but we’ve got a strong one in our midst. We piece together a fragmented memory of a murder alongside a son seeking justice for his father, whose memory continues to degenerate. The agency to find the truth is powerful, but truth is opaque. Thankfully, we’ve got a hero with impeccable memory of every detail and allies in this war. The premise alone was compelling enough from the get-go, so this stellar cast — tasked with unfolding the story behind this memory — will surely make this ride all the more enjoyable, emotional, and poignant. In search of this memory, we go…

 
EPISODE 1 RECAP

The prison doors open, and two guards escort a tied-up prisoner, their footsteps echoing through the hall. At the sight of the execution chamber, the prisoner tries to resist entrance, but he’s dragged into the room.

The noose is prepared, and the prisoner stares at it with fear and shock. His eyes meet those of a boy on the other side of the glass, and he runs frantically toward him. He pleads for his freedom, insisting that he’s innocent. “Jin-woo ya, tell them I’m not the culprit! Jin-woo ya, you told me you would get me out! Get me out!”

Getting on his knees, Jin-woo desperately begs the officials to save his father. They stare stoically at the scene, while Jin-woo yells and bangs on the glass. The execution process continues, despite their hysteria, and the noose is wrapped around his neck. Time stands still in the moment the floor releases, and the innocent father is hung.

Jin-woo wakes up from his nightmare in cold sweat, eyes wide with fear. He realizes his surroundings and breathes a sigh of relief — he’s simply in his office on a late night. He looks intently at his calendar, which has December 9th circled.

It’s the day of the prison visit. Jin-woo’s father sits across from him and politely apologizes for his lack of recognition. The unfamiliarity seems normal to Jin-woo, and he introduces himself. He’s SEO JIN-WOO (Yoo Seung-ho), the defense attorney for SEO JAE-HYUK (Jeon Gwang-ryul) in his retrial, four years after his initial trial.

Jae-hyuk presumes that Jin-woo knows his sentence and condition, and Jin-woo begins to prepare his father for their upcoming trial. But Jae-hyuk ponders aloud, “At the end of life, what remains is not your money or name, but your memory. But for me, even that memory does not remain.”

He describes what others have told him about the horrible crime he committed: killing a young woman, a 20-year-old college student. Whether it’s good or bad fortune, he has no memory of it. He tells Jin-woo that he’ll decline the offer for his retrial.

Jin-woo asks if it’s because he doesn’t trust a young lawyer like him. Jae-hyuk smiles and explains that he trusts Jin-woo’s practice. But his lack of memory can’t justify his innocence, so he’s decided to stay in prison to repent.

Jae-hyuk notes that Jin-woo isn’t surprised and asks if they’ve had this conversation before. Jin-woo recounts that he’s refused an appeal 7 times, insisted on receiving punishment 9 times, and told Jin-woo that he’d represent him well 10 times. They laugh at his stellar memory, but Jin-woo quickly changes the mood by insisting on Jae-hyuk’s innocence. Someone else deserves the punishment that Jae-hyuk has wrongfully received these past four years. Even if he can’t remember, he must remember.

Suddenly, a flicker of Jae-hyuk’s memory comes back, and he asks Jin-woo if he had a son. He encourages his crying father to keep digging into his memory, for he’ll realize that his son may be closer than he thinks. Jin-woo exits the prison, and he vows to get his father out.

Four years ago. On a typical morning, Jin-woo expresses his approval of the side dishes for breakfast. He promises to make dinner that night and gets even more excited when his father promises to come home early from work. They’re called outside by neighborhood friends, a father and his daughter Jung-ah, with a bag of sweet potatoes to share. They’ve just come back from their morning hike and tease each other for insisting on accompanying the other.

In a fancy hotel, a man with an intricate dragon tattoo on his back showers and prepares his outfit with his one night stand counterpart. As he walks out to start his day, the woman reminds him of his promise to stay with her for the day. In his thick Kyungsangdo accent, he says that he has no recollection of such a promise. She assumes he’s going to his wife, but he laughs off the idea. He’s got a trial to attend.

She’s skeptical that a man with a dragon tattoo on his back would be a lawyer, so he gives her a business card. Sure enough, the man with the dragon tattoo, PARK DONG-HO (Park Sung-woong), is the lawyer he claims to be. Good guy or bad guy, his job is to release his clients’ handcuffs. On cue, he receives a call from his boss and heads out to do his job.

Dong-ho greets his handcuffed client, SUK JOO-IL (Lee Won-jong) with a fist bump and seems stumped in their difficult situation. His client had a physical encounter with a young man at the club, and now he’s faced with 30 weeks of jail time. There’s barely any room for mercy, since the man is the chaebol heir to Il-ho Insurance. On top of that, they’re going up against prosecutor TAK YOUNG-JIN, who’s notoriously resistant to bribes.

But Dong-ho reminds his mob boss client that a good lawyer wins with no charges in court, but the best lawyer doesn’t even need to go to court. *fist bump*

In his high school uniform, Jin-woo video calls his father as he waits for his bus to the broadcast station. Dad works a menial labor job, and he was called to work on short notice. He apologizes to Jin-woo for not accompanying him and asks him to give him a better view of his outfit. He gives a thumbs up of approval for his handsome son. They’re adorable.

When Jin-woo starts to exit the bus, he bumps into a student (Park Min-young), and she drops her bag. He returns it to her, but just as he’s about to leave, she notices a slit in her bag and no wallet. She demands everyone to stay on the bus, since they’re all part of a crime scene. She rattles off legal jargon while carrying a giant law book, and all of the bus riders end up at the police department.

The police can’t find anything on the bus surveillance footage, so they ask pickpocketed girl if she can specify potential suspects. She scans the bus riders and corners Jin-woo — he’s the one most likely to have pickpocketed her when he bumped into her.

Though Jin-woo denies the deed, she’s convinced that he’s the culprit and insists that she remembers everything. Jin-woo cracks a little smile. She remembers, huh? How good is her memory? Pretty good, she claims. Then what was the exact time of their encounter? What was the person next to her wearing? She laughs at the questions.

Jin-woo digs back into his super memory and tells her everything, from the exact hour and minute to the bus information to the outfit of the person sitting next to her. And sure enough, they find a girl in the bus crowd fitting the exact description.

Pickpocketed girl complains that no one remembers such small details, but Jin-woo argues that the smallest details are the most important. She doesn’t believe him. “Soon enough, you’ll believe me. Because my memory doesn’t miss one thing,” he claims.

Jin-woo goes back into his memory to replay the exact scene of their encounter. The scene freezes in time as he walks through the bus. He finds that the bag was slit open before they made a stop, so it’s likely that the crime scene was earlier in the timeline. He backtracks to the bus stop, where he watches their wait for the bus. He sees a man in jeans with a Rolex watch getting into a prepared black car. Jin-woo repeats the man’s words before he entered the car: “In an hour, the Office of Tax Administration.”

The girl laughs again in disbelief, but the police confirm Jin-woo’s memory. The license plate of the car matches one of a stolen vehicle. The crowd murmurs in fascination, but Jin-woo isn’t done. He claims that the criminal is here with them. After a moment, he points to the poster on a cabinet with a picture of the real pickpocket, Oh Jong-su. “My memory is accurate to the smallest detail.” The crowd applauds.

Mob boss lawyer Dong-ho stands out with his bright blue suit in the grayscale color scheme of the prosecutor’s office. He runs into a familiar enemy, Prosecutor HONG MOO-SUK, in the elevator, and the prosecutor asks Dong-ho if he’s still working under mob boss Suk Joo-il. Dong-ho expresses his disapproval of his phrasing (working under), and the prosecutor extends an invitation to face off in court soon to straighten out their ill fate.

But Dong-ho is looking for another person in this office: Prosecutor Tak Young-jin, his opponent. Dong-ho follows him into the bathroom and gives him a frivolous greeting at the urinals. Prosecutor Tak refuses to compromise, but Dong-ho gives him a tempting offer. Defer this trial, and Dong-ho will help him score a huge drug case in Busan. It’ll be good for his reputation, especially after his epic loss in his last mob case. He doesn’t reject the offer, which looks good for Dong-ho.

The bus riders are released from the police office, and the pickpocketed girl tries to apologize to Jin-woo again. She apologizes profusely, but he doesn’t accept her apology. If he didn’t have such a detailed memory, her baseless claims could have framed him as the real culprit. He warns her not judge without the full story — someone’s life could be on the line.

As he leaves, he turns around to add that she should be especially careful if she’s a law student. She referenced section 4, clause 5 of criminal law? Section 4 has to do with real estate, and there are only 3 clauses. HA.

Our law student, LEE IN-AH, quietly sneaks into her lecture, but her professor notices her and picks on her to answer his scenario question. She responds that this supposed relative who was sexually harassing the girl should be locked up right away with the charge of attempted assault. But another classmate, NAM YEO-KYUNG (Jung Hye-sung), disagrees and claims that the action was halted when the girl screamed, so attempted assault would not be the charge. She steals the spotlight with her flawless recitation of the law.

As they share a meal, Prosecutor Tak asks how Dong-ho knew of his lack of knowledge in mob cases. Dong-ho doesn’t reveal his source but simply explains that this information is why he’s got high success rate. He offers his helpful tips in this new partnership, and they toast.

Prosecutor Tak asks how Dong-ho plans to handle their chaebol heir, but Dong-ho’s still thinking it through. Prosecutor Tak says that NAM GYU-MAN (Namgoong Min) has everything — money and power — but humanity. With that much money and power, he should have grown up in a household that embedded manners, but he turned out pretty twisted. He’s got no filter. And we see that: His company workers line up with bowed heads as he walks by, and he forces an older gentleman to bow deeper to meet his satisfaction.

Prosecutor Tak admits that he agreed to Dong-ho’s conditions partly because he doesn’t want to help such a filthy guy. Looks like they’ve got obstacles, but Dong-ho smiles and reassures Prosecutor Tak that he doesn’t have a 100% success rate for no reason.

In the car, Chaebol Nam Gyu-man asks for an update on their case against this mob boss. His secretary, AHN SOO-BUM (Lee Shi-un), assures him that the case is going well. Gyu-man insists that they speak informally when they’re not in the company setting — they’re friends, after all. Secretary Ahn speaks informally in a formal tone as he says that the case should end in their favor, especially with their prosecutor.

Dissatisfied by the response, Gyu-man tells his chauffeur to stop the car, and Secretary Ahn shuffles out by our spoiled chaebol’s window. Pushing at his friend’s forehead, Gyu-man recalls being embarrassed in front of his friends and wants more than just legal punishment. He asks about the mob boss’s family and orders his secretary to find a guy good with knives. Say, what?!

Then he asks about the next line of business. The venue is being prepared, and Gyu-man reminds his secretary to recruit a trot singer, preferably unknown. To finish off his tantrum, Gyu-man leaves Secretary Ahn on the side of the road and tells him to take a taxi back. After the royal pain in the ass leaves, Secretary Ahn fumes with anger.

From afar, Dong-ho and his photographer capture this interaction. Dong-ho has got his hands full.

Law student In-ah returns home to her family pizza shop, where her mother is watching a TV program with Jin-woo showing off his hyperthymesia memory. She’s amazed and tells her daughter that this kid could easily pass the bar exam with his memory. Frustrated by Jin-woo, In-ah changes the channel, but the news also shows Jin-woo as the student who identified the pickpocket. In-ah turns off the TV and storms inside.

Secretary Ahn recruits Jin-woo’s neighborhood friend, Jung-ah, as the unknown singer Gyu-man requested, and it seems like she agreed without knowing any context. As she approaches the venue, Secretary Ahn tells her to sing the given repertoire, and she notices Jin-woo’s father working outside. She reveals that he’s her father’s neighborhood friend.

The event is a huge party with all its attendees drinking and shooting up drugs, and Jung-ah is visibly bothered. Secretary Ahn brings her to the dressing room and gives her a dress to change into, but she refuses. She’ll just sing. He brings her to the door to point out all the filthy rich sons at this party. Still she refuses the job, but he hands her an envelope of enough money to cover her tuition and walks out.

When Gyu-man arrives, he’s bothered by Jin-woo’s father, who is vacuuming the lobby. They kick him out and head to meet the singer. Jung-ah has changed into the dress but looks frightened and reluctant to perform. Gyu-man enters her dressing room and gives her a sleazy look.

Jin-woo waits for Dad with his promised kimchee jjigae dinner, but his father has yet to return home. He gives him a call, but he doesn’t answer because he’s busy at the phone store to buy a replacement for his son’s cracked phone. The lady claims that this is his third time coming by the store. Uh-oh.

Jung-ah begins to sing, and it’s immediately clear that Gyu-man disapproves. He drunkenly gets up and yells at her for her song choice. He’s sick and tired of all the English — he wants trot music. Jung-ah nervously apologizes and gets right into singing a trot song.

After her performance, Jung-ah is taking off her jewelry in the dressing room when Gyu-man bursts in with a bottle and two wine glasses. He offers her a drink and looks at her with scary eyes.

The next morning, Jin-woo receives a call from Dad. The dinner looks untouched, and Dad hadn’t come home that night. When Jin-woo asks where he is, Dad doesn’t know. He’s wandering around with his bought cellphone in the middle of nowhere. Jin-woo worriedly rushes out to find him.

Dad continues to wander in the woods and comes across a body of a young lady. It’s Jung-ah. He’s shocked and tries to wake her, but she’s dead. He pulls out his phone to call the police, but he can’t remember his phone’s passcode. Dad panics and grabs his head in pain. Jin-woo arrives on the scene to find a dead Jung-ah and his father passing out beside her.

At the hospital, Dad gets interrogated by the detectives on the case, since he was the first witness. Dad can’t remember why he was at the location and how he got there, which makes him seem more suspicious. The detectives seem to question him as if he’s a suspect, so Jin-woo intervenes with his memory of criminal laws to protect his father from unlawful interrogation.

But when asked if Dad knew the girl, he claims that he’s never seen her. Jin-woo looks at him, shocked, since they clearly know Jung-ah. But Dad denies any knowledge of this girl.

Jin-woo rushes back home to find all the phone purchases and other multiple purchases. He seems to be assuming the worst and gets Dad tested for possible memory loss. But in the doctor’s office, Dad shows no sign of major memory loss, which is a relief for Jin-woo.

The Seochon murder becomes national news, and the prosecutors are pressured to narrow down a suspect. Elevator Prosecutor Hong tells the detective on the case to look through his list of possible suspects, but the detective says that they’ve found no leads and searching through this list would be useless. But they’ve got their jobs on the line, and Prosecutor Hong threatens to cut him loose if they can’t catch a suspect soon.

At the funeral, Dad and Jin-woo pay their respects to Jung-ah and her father. Dad encourages his friend to stay strong for Jung-ah, to find the killer for her sake. Then the detectives barge in, with Prosecutor Hong’s warning ringing in their heads: 3 days to get a confession.

The detective drags Dad out of the service, much to everyone’s surprise. Jin-woo tries to chase after his father, who assures him that everything is okay — they’ve probably got something wrong. Dad is swiftly taken away in the police van, leaving Jin-woo soaking in the rain outside.

Once the coast is clear, one police car veers off, and the detective orders the driver to turn off the siren. Dad looks confused about where they’re going, but he’s given no answers. The van ends up in an empty warehouse, and we’re left in the dark about what happens there.

Jin-woo returns to a ransacked home, and it’s clear where this chaos is headed.

The news reports on the killer in the Seochon murder case, and In-ah’s parents watch the news in horror. Her father watches with disbelief, having met Jin-woo’s dad on multiple occasions. He would never commit such a deed. Then In-ah’s mom turns around and asks if that Jung-ah is the Jung-ah from her 5th grade class. In-ah gasps in shock upon realization that she knew this Jung-ah.

Jin-woo waits to meet his father, and tears begin to well up when he sees Dad. He asks Dad what’s happened, but Dad can’t recognize him. He asks who Jin-woo is, and the lack of recognition shocks Jin-woo. Once Jin-woo clarifies that he is Dad’s son, the realization slowly hits, and Dad begins to shed tears. They reach their hands out against the glass, both crying.

In-ah finds Jin-woo standing outside of the courthouse, watching the protests demanding capital punishment for Dad. She tries to catch his attention, but the bus arrives with Dad. The crowds rush towards him, and police forces have to stand in their way. Dad looks confused and overwhelmed by the crowd, and Jin-woo watches the scene with fear.

Suddenly, a man recognizes Jin-woo as the killer’s son, and they all rush towards him. In-ah gets pushed into the crowd as the police block them off from Jin-woo. The protester manages to pull his necklace off, and it falls along with the ring hung on it. Jin-woo gets beaten with thrown eggs and stands helplessly in front of the courthouse.

 
COMMENTS

I’m enthralled by the performances in this first episode. Our father-son duo emotionally grounds this show, and these two are a powerful pair. Jeon Gwang-ryul is wonderfully poignant in performance as Jin-woo’s father, expressing tragedy and regret in a fragile way. The subtle changes in his unfamiliarity to his recognition of Jin-woo induced a strong pang of emotions, including a deep sadness for his shame in forgetting his son. He’s just got those forlorn eyes that say everything about what he’s feeling. And of course, Yoo Seung-ho reflecting that weight of emotions completes it. He looks so great on screen, in character, and ugh, I just love him.

In the same vein but a different response, I am so disgusted by Gyu-man. I am disgusted by his mannerisms, his entitlement, his party… Is it too early for me to hate his entire being? But wow, we’ve got to give Namgoong Min a hand for animating this deeply disturbing character with bravado. I’m hoping we’ll be given more middle ground in his character, as opposed to a straight up villain to the extreme. I’d love to see the complexities that created such a despicable being, and I know Namgoong Min is capable of adding dimension and creating a vulnerable villain. He’s got the bad guy thing down — I’m already getting chills and higher blood pressure just looking at the guy — but I want to feel more invested in this antagonist.

I was hoping for more bromance between our chaebol pain and his secretary, but I’m not sure that’ll be the nature of their relationship. Or maybe it’ll develop into a better bromance once our resentful secretary does something to Gyu-man’s liking. As long as the cost for their friendship isn’t an innocent life, I’m all for more petty antics between these two.

What a fun character we’ve got with Dong-ho. His carefree nature and shrewd practice is a nice comic breeze in the gravity of everything else. He’s savvy in his field, though I wonder if he intentionally uses his skills for our mob boss. Is it his choice to be defending mobs? He sure didn’t seem happy to be labeled as working under the mob boss, which makes me question what landed him in his current practice. Dong-ho’s an interesting one, and we’ll need to peel away his goofy grins to find out how he fits into this story.

The memory sequence was excellent in its representation of the details of hyperactive memory. Revisiting a memory almost seems supernatural, and though we’re not explicitly traveling through a wormhole to go back to the past, this whole memory deal is essentially time travel for us. I do wonder how useful this condition would be to Dad’s situation, since there is absolutely no memory base to begin with. How will his detailed memory help him, if the memory isn’t his to begin with?

I’m curious to see how the partnership between Jin-woo and In-ah grows, since we’ve seen some of the fundamental differences in their thought process. No doubt, Jin-woo’s recall ability has contributed to his insistence on knowing everything before making assumptions. But that’s not to say that In-ah was completely wrong in deducing that Jin-woo was the pickpocket. She shows a weakness and hypocrisy of human nature in our tendency to blame others with the slightest association when faced with little evidence. Which is exactly what happened with Dad, except with more political manipulation and illicit activities.

With all the pieces in place, I’m eager to see how this drama capitalizes on all of its potential. You’ve got a great story, a strong cast, and compatible directing — show us what you’re made of!

Hahaa the image of Gyu-man guzzling his champagne open-mouth omggg soo funny.

I'm always going to support the two leads, so I'm watching this with a positive mindset. And just the whole cast is awesome. The plot needs to adjust itself to let us catch up with it, but other than that I'm lovin' this!!!

I love a serious / thriller series,and the first (two)episodes have given a promising premise. If they can keep up with this tone/atmosphere without too many fan services, than it's great. Btw, YSH and JGR are amazing. I watch this series just for them.

Awesome first episode. Every character just seems so interesting and fleshed out, even the evil ones. But holy hell, the father-son relationship hit me hard. And I can't believe the dad now has to deal with his Alzheimer's alone in prison. That's gotta be so scary. He needs his Jin Woo :(

This episode made me as livid as Pinocchio by making Dad the scapegoat under presidential pressure to catch the suspect. The police have no evidence, and Jin Woo should have insisted the doctors run more tests. I winced through the first two minutes; executions make me queasy. Thank goodness it was only a nightmare.

Yoo Seung Ho is hands down the best actor of his generation. He is cute in romantic comedies, but dramas are where he shines. Every emotion is conveyed through his eyes. I want to cry even before he cries. With Gaekju's plot at a standstill, it is time for Remember to overtake the top spot in ratings. I am hooked already.

Thanks for the recap, dramallama!

I am thrilled to find this post today~ *squeee*
I've watched (as I vowed before to myself that I wouldn't pass this drama no matter what) many times.

And this is toooo brilliant, ok, I may be overboard with compliments (still have a long way to go) because my fanheart for The Divine, in my opinion, Yoo Seung Ho, He's wonderful isn't he? Well, He always wonderful in my eyes, improved along these years. He brought me tears in the first few minutes, I couldn't stand looked into his eyes without shed any tears. He difinitely nailed Jin Woo

Park Min Young eonni~ it's really nice to see her and I officially love her, as much as I always loved Moon Chae Won. Her Meeting with Jin Woo is really moving, I don't know, it just has deep meaning for their future, not just nonsense bickering and I excited to see how far she could accompany him.

Park Sung Woong too, of course great, I laughed hard when he's sing, and how he handled the real justice. Now I want to believe that maybe he wouldn't cross the dark too far.

No words for Nam Goong Min, he is the most hottest and believable villain these days. He totally changed from his role in The Girl See Smell yet got me the same vibe. Fighting oppa, I'm ready to hate(?) you hahaha

And Thankyou Dramallama for the recap, and fighting. I'm waited for next next post ^^
Thankyou

Yay for Yoo Seung Ho!!!!! With Remember and Imaginary Cat going on at the same time, it just goes to show his talent as a young actor. His return to dramaland has been flawless so far and he's still on an upward path.

I'm still interested in how the characters are going to increase in depth and background, especially Gyu-man (that guy is seriously evil) and this show already has all of me invested, so I'm cheering Remember on!!

Also Yoo Seung Ho is wonderfully handsome (just wanted to add that there). Thanks for the recap!!

I'm glad this show is being recapped. I really liked the first two episodes. This is the most handsome Namgoong Min has been in my opinion, the hair-cut really suits him and makes him look much younger.
I'm happiest because there is not a single weak performance here, everyone is doing so well. I like this drama a lot more than that other SBS drama with the genius boy whose father was also wrongly accused. The heroines have the same first name and the actresses who played them have the same last name. I was moved by emotion and by how intense the episodes were, but Ii didn't know it would be 24 not 20. How are they planning on sustaining the show?
Does anyone else think that Namgoong Mmin's character and that lawyer girl in In-ah's class are related? I wonder how she would feel when she realizes just how terrifying her brother is. She's so righteous now, but I'm sure that would change later.
Namgoong Min is really rocking this role, I have not been chilled to the bone since Liar Game's Kang Do-young.

It's a fantastic cast, which I guess is part of the reason why this first episode was already so stressful. They brought to life the heightened melodrama so well. I'm not sure if I could endure the run, though much respect to the makers for starting the show off with a bang.

Really enjoyed Park Sung-woong's portrayal so far. His bad boy lawyer is so entertaining!

OK, so I watched the first episode.

I really want to like it, but it just felt bler..

The thrill and pace are there, but it is seriously lacking logic and there were quite some facepalm moments.

One reason why "Miracle in Cell No. 7" worked is because the story took place atleast 20 years ago when forensic investigation was not as developed and when the legal system was not as mature. So the idea that silly Dad Ryu Seung Ryong is being accused of rape and murder based on zero evidence, besides being there at the time and place where the victim was discovered, actually "works" here because his daughter (Park Shin-hye) will use these doubts to reverse the verdict in his retrial 20 years later.

Remember - Son's War however, takes place in 21st century. I don't buy the "we have zero evidence, but just because I say so" plot here. I just feel that Dad is being accused of murder just because he "just has to" in order to justify the story. I know we are going to have corruption and "a badass president" again (just like all other Kdramas such as God's Gift, Pinocchio etc.).. but man, I just wish the execution was smarter and more intelligent.

Same here re: logic/plot so far.

While I get his photographic memory, it seems a little far-fetched he was focusing on even the pickpocket's conversation when he was getting into his car.

Plus - Nam Gong Min was awesome, though I am not quite yet swayed by both leads after Ep 1.

actually the character has a condition called Hyperthymesia which in reality is rarely diagnosed but still exists, so him remembering the thieve's conversation isn't that far fetch considering he suffers from Hyperthymesia

Same here. I was hooked in the first 10 minutes, thanks to Yoo Seung Ho's acting. But the drama is just filled with adults acting like a child. The logic is laughable. So, I will not be wasting good hours of my life with this show despite the cast.

I actually thought they had plenty of reasons to suspect him: He knew the victim, couldn't recall what happened that night, was the first person to find her body, and if necessary, could even be placed in the general vicinity of where she was last seen. Sure, WE know he's innocent, but when you put that sort of information into the hands of someone with power and zero morals, who's under pressure from the public to give them a suspect, it's easy to see how he became their unwitting scape-goat (especially since most murders are committed by someone the victim knows). For them, they were more interested in closing the case, not in punishing the right man... so in the context of this world, of this story, I really didn't find it all that far-fetched, not when it was such an easy case to pin on someone else. Not to mention, confessions given under duress happen all the time.

Plus, if anything, I think it's an interesting look into the corruption of power, and how the poor often find themselves victims of the system. Especially in a country like Korea who seems to be struggling with problems of noblesse privilege (the "nut rage" scandal), and big corporation greed (the Sewol Ferry tragedy), so perhaps this is something that would be on the forefront of most viewers minds. So personally, I find the set-up really interesting and look forward to seeing how the "little man" triumphs in a world that's controlled by those with wealth, privilege, and power.

I know Dad being wrongly accused as a scape-goat behind the scheme of a greater corrupted power is what the show is all about, but the build-up and execution are just silly.

Didn't Dad go to the doctor to have examinations concerning his memory deterioration? That would have explained why he can't recall anything regarding that night. Didn't Dad go down the city to buy a new phone for his son (there must be a certain distance between the vacation house and the phone store, no?)? Does he not have a receipt where the time and date of purchase are stated (if not, he has the sales person as witness or maybe CCTV)? I find it very hard to believe that he is the first and most importantly the only person to be accused of rape and murder based on the fact that he knows her and that he was there when she was discovered. Atleast, Miracle in Cell No. 7's Daddy was seen pulling the little girl's pants down when she lying there.

Did the victim not undergo autopsy? If so, they could have found the culprit's skin fibers, fingerprints or any of his belongings on her, especially if she was assaulted. She would have struggled with him and it would have left some of his traces between her fingernails. If baddie was smart enough to shower her after he murdered her or put on gloves when he assaulted her, resulting into "zero evidenice" of the culprit, then on what ground of evidence can Dad be accused of this crime if there is no evidence or traces of the culprit? Do they not have "reasonable doubt or beyond a reasonable doubt" in Korea? Nobody actually questioned the organisator of the party or the owner of house?

Like HILLEO♥fab♥GO GO commented, it would have been more believable if baddie actually bribed the police forces, forensic department and the prosecutor to accuse Dad, to make up fake evidence and to remove his name from the list of the suspects.

But that being said, I just swallowed down the things that bugged me, so I did enjoy episode 2. It has 24 episodes, so I'm curious how they are going to stretch this.

All those facts that you are mentioning are actually the reason why the build up and execution of the show are excellent.

The writer is telling you that with all those facts, a good lawyer can win this case in his sleep, yet they got the father a rambling useless and incompetent lawyer who doesn't give a crap about defending his client or if his client is innocent or guilty.

And even the son who is still a high schooler can see that, hence his determination(going gambling to get the money to pay the lawyer) to find a competent lawyer to defend his dad.

They are laying down all the facts for you to follow the story and you are calling them "silly" and "bad execution" when it's not.
I know everyone is entitled to their opinion but It's sometimes frustrating to hear people give a bad wrap to a show from the get go just because they are too lazy to connect the facts.

If you want to continue watching the show, I suggest you watch the 1st 2 episodes once more to understand the logic of the writer because it's pretty straightforward to me.

The writer is showing you how corrupt the system is:

from lazy and incompetent lawyers who don't care about facts,
to sleazy ones who fabricate evidence to ruin innocent lives,

to the police officers who ruin innocent lives and ignore and/or destroy evidence because "they have to close a case".

That's what this show is about and YSH and PMY are doing a fantastic job so far showing their frustration and powerlessness at the unjust and corrupt system.

i got your point and others' point too. and kinda agree with you. in the corrupt countries, even with so called 'evidence' and 'fact', money could buy anything including the 'truth'.

the police and prosecutor just wanted to finish this case no matter what happen to someone's life. and look at the people who thought that the dad is the killer, they didnt even give any thought of him. the neighbor who lived with them for years and knew him even thought that he's the killer.

there was a 'same' case happened in my country, police put an innocent man into jail bcuz they 'thought' he was the culprit. they were being biased. even the evidence told differently. until a good lawyer helped him. i watched him got interviewed in national tv and he got released after months in jail. if i were him, i would sue those polices... sigh.

so, watching this one, every evidence could be made by those who 'want' it. we just need a good prosecutor, some good policemen and good lawyer to help the innocent.

so i kinda agree with my fave dream and you too ^^

@sogazelle

Well, it's very unfortunate that you find people who express a different opinion or different view too "lazy" to understand and to connect to the story. If I was watching the show half asleep I wouldn't even have bothered to come up with the points I mentioned earlier in my previous posts.

@sogazelle & My Favorite Dream

This is my THIRD time saying this, I know Dad being wrongly accused as a scape-goat behind the scheme of a greater corrupted power is what the show is all about. I'm not against the premise, I was just hoping for a smarter execution. Because for now, the points that you (@Sogazelle) have mentioned regarding "a corrupt system" did not happen so far, except for a stuttering useless lawyer and a corrupt prosecutor. There is no fabricated evidence, fake witnesses, or police and forensic officers who destroy evidences whatsoever (so far). There is no evidence at all, whether it's fabricated, destroyed, ignored or not. You may find this a fascinating set-up, but I think I'm allowed to express my opinion that I just find it silly and hard to suspend disbelief. And I guess you will just have to accept that people experience different views on things. IF baddie actually bribed everyone involved and fabricated fake evidence or fake witnesses to mislead people or just to frame Dad from the get-go, it would have been more believable for me to watch and also something that I was actually was hoping for. Not sure if you have seen "Beyond the Clouds/Full Sun"? The male lead was also accused of murder which he did not commit. But atleast he was deliberately framed and put in jail by the villian who fabricated evidence and bribed the local police department and court.

What is also laughable is that baddie was smart enough to remove his traces on her and to wear a condom when he sexually assaulted her, but then just placed her body in an open place instead of burying the corpse under the ground (they are in a forest anyway...). But of course, I know that I'm just being picky here because this is just a TV drama and it does not bother me as much as the things I've mentioned earlier.

Of course, my opinion is MERELY based on the first two episodes. It's a good thing that doubts and questions are being raised by Park Jin Woong's character during the trial scene in episode 2 - not everyone is empty-headed in this drama I guess. I'm genuinely looking forward to how the case is going to unfold in the latter episodes, considering the fact that this is coming from the writer of one of my all-time favourite Korean films "The Attorney". But if it continues down the same road as episode 1 & 2.. You will not have to see me here anymore.

@Blossom

Sorry! Didn't mean for it to come off like I was attacking you, I was just trying to figure out how we could be on two such very different wavelengths. That, and I didn't want any new readers curious about the drama to read your review and get the wrong impression; though I agree you have a right to your opinion. Hope you enjoy it from here on out!

0

I still don't understand why you find the set-up silly or unbelievable though. In the first episode, their main objective was to establish him as a worthy suspect/scape-goat in the murder, and considering all the reasons I laid out in my previous comment, I felt like they did that. Frankly, all the gripes you pointed out happen all the time in real life (even more-so on television): Scenes get compromised, people get bribed, cops get lazy, DNA can be unattainable or destroyed due to poor transportation or storage practices, doctors can be wrong, innocent people are convicted, etc. Those, to me, weren't exactly face-palm moments, but merely proof of a flawed system which is meant to set up the world in which our hero is set to fight.

I'm guessing all the stuff you listed will be addressed during the trial, or through dialogue down the road - I was merely defending his believability as a suspect, and trusting the writer to explain away all the rest in due time. Again, this was only the first episode, so I think it's unrealistic to expect them to address EVERYTHING - establishing characters, relationships, and plot should always come first. His alibi, autopsy results, evidence, etc - if they don't explain that all during the trial in a believable way and still find him guilty, *then* I wouldn't blame you for taking issue. But again, I think it's too early to judge it so harshly from the start when we have yet to see how it all unfolds.

And frankly, I think it's important to remember that this is a drama, not a documentary, and even popular American series (and most Korean dramas) require some suspension of belief when it comes to the science found in their shows. I mean, if they did find DNA and knew who the culprit was right from the start, that would make for a pretty short (and dull) drama! But I'm glad none of that stopped you from watching the next episode and enjoying it!

As for his memory issue: I got the impression from his son's reaction that the doctor thought he was fine after the examination, since he passed the few tests he gave him? And honestly, even if the doctor *had* found something during that short visit, it doesn't automatically clear him of murder charges or of committing a crime - memory deterioration isn't a get-out-of-jail free card. If anything, for most people that would just just make him look even more guilty since he could've done the crime and legitimately forgotten. Just the fact that he was wandering in the woods in the middle of nowhere, and happened to "stumble" upon the dead body of a girl he lives nearby, would be suitable cause for suspicion, whether he was guilty or not.

And reasonable/unreasonable doubt is the court's jurisdiction, not the police. They give them the most likely suspect, and then it's up the prosecutors to prove or disprove the validity of the police's suspect. Something the second episode had been doing a good job exploring... so even that complaint of yours was...

...already addressed. And for all we know, HILLEO♥fab♥GO GO's comment might still prove to be the case - we don't know, because again, this was only the first episode and we have many more to go.

As for me, the only thing I really took issue with was the stuttering lawyer (and even that I could overlook for thematic-reasons), but since that wasn't in this episode, I'll address it during the second episode recap instead (hopefully there will be one)!

0

The girl was sexually assaulted and the forensic examiner couldn't find *any* evidence of the culprit because -wait for it- "the DNA was destroyed"?? *face palm* It'd have been actually believable if the baddie bribed them, which definitely doesn't seem far fetched compared to extorting a confession from a sufferer of an illness that causes his memory to deteriorate.
Other than this thorn in my eye, I think the drama is compelling enough and the cast is awesome.

I really like the premise of the story, but I kind of cringed during the first part, when they showed the happy-go-lucky interaction between father and son. It was way too sweet and exaggerated and I felt that it wouldn't have had to. The change would still be as drastic even without them being so over the top.
But I enjoyed the episode nonetheless, since this was only a short part.

YSH and JGR father-son duo is so heart touching. Namgoong min looks super evil much evil than his last drama TGWSS. PSW and mob boss looks like hidden identity reunion, they just got new identities. PSW is the most intriguing character here. PMY looks so similar with her previous lawyer character in ANL. I hope she grows some spines to help YSH.

I was really excited to check out this drama due to the story and also due to Park Sung-woong.
I'm so not used to seeing him all flashy and smiley! Last time I watched him act was in Hidden Identity. It's cool to see him playing a whole different type of character though.

Namgoong Min makes for a very convincing villain. I haven't see him in much stuff. Actually, the only drama was Secret Hotel. But yeah, it would be interesting to see more sides to him than just a straight up bad guy. I already hate the way he treats his secretary. Lee Shi-Un had such a great bromance with Jung Kyung-Ho in Falling for Innocence when he was also the secretary and JKH was the boss.

You should check out Unemployed Romance. It's a light romantic comedy and Namgoong Min is absolutely hilarious in it. It was the first thing I saw him in so I always think of him as a comic actor first but he does make a pretty great villain. What with his previous turn as a serial killer in Girl Who Sees Smells and now Remember, I hope he doesn't get typecast as a villain and gets to do some more comedy.

Chae Youngshin, where is Parkbongsookie?
oosp, i keep seeing doppelgänger of my forever faithful, patient, trusting Youngshin-ya.
i was going to boycott this "Remember"right from the start. else i keep thinking Chae Youngshin went adultery against my Seo Junghoo? at least i keep feeling like it. was telling myself, i may have to boycott both Parkminyoung or Jichangwook show for a long while, before i can visualize Chae Youngshin and Seo Junghoo hugging another co-stars.... just couldn't help compare this OPT with Healer's OTP, think i am not doing justice huh.
well. i am more "mature" than that right?sggghhh.... extreme post-healerless syndrome.

Healer sort of created "Aurora Borealis" in my galaxy, and spin me into another sphere / realm. Healer start my virgin flight into many sites, with Healer i start writing at instagram, twitter, dramabeans, soompi, tumblr...

“What remains in life, is not money, not your name, it will be memory. To me, those memories won’t last.” : Dad.
“To know the detail is the most important thing… Because nothing is missing from my memory.”: Seo Jinwoo.
Remembering, is a gift from God, to all. What was kept in our mind stayed till we hold our last breathe on earth. Remembering is much about people, people that matters to us.
Memories are very fair, whether to the rich or poor, the clever or the “stupid”, the good-people or Bad-people. Memories are a blessing, to all. It’s the only thing we acuminate for free as we aged in life.
For dad, and those who has Azlemair early in life, this precious part was robe, if the memories were beautiful and about loved ones. But for those who had a painful suffering life behind them, memories were tortures and is a blessing not to remember.
We are yet to see, this nothing missing from Seo Jinwoo’s memories is a blessing, or a torture for him. Remember is also something we hold loved ones forever in our hearts, a gift even to our loved ones, a tool to save our loved ones in jinwoo’s case. To some, Remember is the best gift our loved ones give us.

How do you want it to be remembered? Is there a message you would like to deliver?”
Writer Yoon Hyeon-ho: “The thing that lasts the most in life is ‘Remembrance’. Sad, happy or beautiful, the person with the most ‘memories’ is a rich one.”
JW: “My memory is very precise even about trivial things.”
the thing that lasts the most in life is Remembrance, sad, happy, ugly or beautiful, the person with the most memories is a rich one. The person with the most memories of someone he loved, whether is it memories of sadness or happiness or trivial matters daily lives memories of the loved ones, as long as he stored it all, he is rich until the moment he died. Because remembering someone is the only rights or luxuries we have, either is it a death sentence awaiting criminal, or a cancer patient, or a aging old man, or a heart broken wanting to end life person, memories is something that accompany us till our last breathe in a locked cell, upon hospital bed, or that seconds just before we decided to take our life.... Memories is all we have, nothing and no one can take away. And Memories is the best things we can leave behind for our loved ones. This is the theme of Remember. The Theme of Remember is not about “war of the son” nor about some NGM war, but it just a one word title: “Remember”. Remember his loved ones, and how to love his loved ones, when he start to stop remembering them.
“What remains in life, is not money not your name, it will be memory. To me, those memories won’t last.”: spoken by JW’s Dad who was a ‘Type’ of JW foreshadow what will becometh of JW. Speaking as an Alz’s patient, that memories being the only luxuries accompanied a death sentence criminals, or a dying of cancer patient, even of one that seeking suicide, even this is rob from a Alz’s patient. Alz’s is the worst kind of death sentence, worst kind of sickness, worst kind of aging and wasting away.

IA warming up to him, actual feeling should be developed only at the end of ep1, when she witnessed the saga of the egg throwing. But before that, it was just pure amazed at his photographic memories which only followed after embarrassment and guilt of almost causing him to be jail... Just like same thing happened to dad, all presumptions. The embarrassment and guilt was strong enough to leave an impact, even to extend of frustration of repeated reminder of her blunders earlier on, first by the TN reality show that obviously was what JW was going to, just before being almost be framed as a thief.
Followed by TV realities, he was furthered mentioned in the news report that he aided in catching the actual thief... Even until the mins before the egg throwing... JW to her, was just a student... There was no love at first sight, no growing up with childhood memories of already attracted and fond of each other... It was a slow developed slow cooking stew... Not a 3 min High temp Micro.

His memories did randomly returns, “JW, these days I strangely remembered everything from the past, you and I have so many happy memories together.” JW may just do that once a while, ‘strangely remembering everything vividly from the past’ Just like what Jinwoo told his family in the car prior to the car accident, there are many pockets in his memories, just like photographs files, any time he wanted he can reopen and access, now his case is anytime he want he cannot reopen all these pockets as and when he wanted, but they are not lost without, just lost without inner-space. Read an articles Writernim Yoon mentioned, “the subject of ‘memory’ is something every writer would want ot deal with”. Confirming that the drama is not solely a thriller of legal wars between some sons, the key centre is not even Nam Gyu-man, but more of the melodrama of the blessing and curses of “to remember and not to remember”. Highlighting Memories as one of the best gift we can give to our loved ones, to ‘make others happy’ by remembering that we loved them for they are unique, for “you’re just you”, just like what Inah said to Jinwoo. I am rewatching the whole drama into the second times, some ep I even watched about 4 to 5 times, I rewatch to feel and understand and prove that Inah role in Jinwoo’s life is crucial.
