Yoon So-hee, Park Jin-hee for legal drama Memory

We have two possible additions to tvN’s Memory, which I will forever confuse with SBS’s brand-new Remember, although maybe you guys will have a better time keeping track of all the dramaland memories rampaging around these days. Not that you can blame anyone for being confused, as both dramas feature main characters who are lawyers losing their memories, who take on one last important case in a race against time before their minds fail them. I’m sure they’re totally different. (Actually, sarcasm aside, I do expect them to be very different in execution, which is why it’s so confusing that these overlapping programming choices happen so often in dramaland. Why always schedule the similarly themed shows together? Why not give them both a little room to breathe?)

Memory is the drama starring Lee Sung-min (Misaeng) as that lawyer (Yoo Seung-ho headlines Remember), who works in a law firm and is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Yoon So-hee is currently positively considering the drama, and would play one of the characters working at the law firm. It sounds like it’ll be a heavily workplace-centric drama, with Song Sun-mi of Miss Korea confirmed to play an attorney and 2PM’s Junho as another younger lawyer.

Park Jin-hee (Gu-am Heo Joon), meanwhile, hasn’t been too active recently, having married and given birth in the past year and half. Joining this show means she’ll be reuniting with writer Kim Ji-woo and PD Park Chan-hong; she worked with the director in 2001’s Stock Flower before working with both in 2011’s Fermentation Family. (The writer-PD duo has collaborated several times before, most notably in thriller dramas Resurrection and Mawang. Also 2013’s revenge drama Shark, but we can forget about that one.)

She’ll be playing Lee Sung-min’s wife, a caring and thoughtful housewife with a bright, positive personality. Kim Ji-soo was previously reported to be considering playing Lee Sung-min’s ex-wife, a capable judge, so I’m going to assume that both ladies will figure into the story as the lead character rediscovers the meaning of family and love through his struggle with his progressing illness.

Memory is being planned for a March premiere as a Friday-Saturday drama on tvN.

I like Yoon So-hee, hope she will play the lead female one of these days. I've only seen PJH in Giant, hmm...Hopefully it'll be a good one!

I've only seen PJH in Giant too, and I hated her character with the fire of a thousand suns. Not sure if it was her performance or the way the character was written that set me off the most, though, so I'll try to give her another chance.

Oh, Junho confirmed for this drama. I don't see the news anywhere yet. I remember that he and Yoon So Hee rumour to be a couple in We Got Married. At least they can meet each other in this drama.

I love Park Jin-hee. She had marvelous chemistry with Park Shin-yang in War of Money (2007) -- and yes that melodrama is still engraved in my heart of hearts the feels it is one melodrama to beat to be honest ---

Loved her in Giant (2010) too. Kang Moya. I still remember her face when she says that.

Now if Lee Sung-min's leading lady will be Song Sun-mi or Park Jin-hee, I'm fine with either. (But he had sizzling chemistry with Song in Miss Korea)

I think the leading ladies will be Kim Ji Soo and Park Jin Hee, with Song Sun-mi more likely in a supporting role.

I hope this drama gives Yoon So-hee a decent role - she's a really good young actress, and versatile too (hard to believe the sweetheart from Let's Eat is the same as Jang-mi's backstabbing friend in Marriage Not Dating). And yeah, she's ready for lead roles too.

This story is something that I am looking forward to. With senior actors as the main lead, actually it does feel good. I hope it turn out to be great!

Yoon So Hee actually is quite lucky, even she is yet to get a lead role but I believe this is the time for her to gain experience first and working with senior actors can help. Plus she is still young. ;)

I always tickled to see your name. Yeah I am waiting for the next episode of 'I have a Lover'. Do you know JJH is collecting his nickname due to his role left and right these days? heh.

I like YSH, but sometimes I get confused since there seem to be several other actress/idol actress who give out similar feels and have similar voices (and way of speaking).

Yoon So-hee was not in Achiara...I'll forever mistake these actresses with eachother. They should get cast in one drama, maybe then I'll notice the difference in their faces.
Anyhow, I like every addition to this drama! PJH is always amazing.
