Kim Dong-wook, Moon Ga-young cast in Memoir of the Man
Kim Dong-wook, Moon Ga-young
Memoir of the Man has cast Kim Dong-wook (Special Labor Inspector Jo, The Guest) and Moon Ga-young (Woohoo Waikiki 2, The Great Seducer) as its leads. This melodrama depicts a romance between a news anchor who has hyperthymesia, a condition that gives him super acute memory of every moment in his life, and a controversial rising star who has lost a chunk of her life due to memory loss.
Kim Dong-wook plays the Nation’s Anchor of the next generation, who has a condition that never lets him forget a moment in his life. The condition means he’s always remembering every second of every day of every year. He’s handsome, fills out his suit perfectly, and has gentle manners to match. However, the moment he’s on air, he changes into a ruthless truth machine that attacks with facts, no matter who the target is.
Moon Ga-young plays a filter-less scandal-maker whose mere presence leads to number one in online search results. Her social media is filled with her completely unfiltered thoughts, and as a result the public is highly engaged in her activities.
The drama will be co-directed by Oh Hyung-jong (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo) and Lee Soo-hyun and written by Kim Yoon-joo (Queen Inhyun’s Man, Nine: Nine Time Travels). MBC’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Memoir of the Man will begin airing on March 18, 2020.
