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.

Kim Dong-wook is coming back!! I'm happy he's playing a character who is described as "handsome" and "fills out his suit perfectly" because his past two roles really put him through the wringer.

I find these polar-opposite pitches so funny.

"So basically, this guy has a great memory. And do you know what the twist is? His girl LOST her memory!"

Who needs their own memory when a guy like that can remember it for you?

Thanks for the casting news for Kim Dong-wook, @tineybeanie. I've been looking forward to a happier role for him that is 100% free of evil discarnate entities.

Here's hoping that the melodrama is kept to a low roar. While I'm ecstatic that Kdramaland seems to be giving prosopagnosia a rest, I'm wary of the combination of hyperthymesia and memory loss. The movie A MOMENT TO REMEMBER was a deluxe tearjerker because of early-onset dementia -- so combining memory loss with another party's ability to recall everything that has ever happened to them is a recipe for unremitting pain. I couldn't bring myself to watch REMEMBER—SON'S WAR with its one-two punch of hyperthymesia and Alzheimer's after watching my Mom lose her battle with the latter. Fingers crossed that I'll be able to enjoy MEMOIR OF THE MAN. ;-)

I’m also hoping the melo factor is kept mellow.

Also, lol on the super memory/terrible memory pairing.

@egads,
You and me both. I was thrilled out of my shoes to learn that Shin Dong-wook will be playing a bona fide surgeon in ROMANTIC DOCTOR TEACHER KIM 2.

Have you considered medicating with CLOUD STAIRCASE while waiting for the new show to premiere? Watch 16 episodes and call me in the morning. ;-)

Oh, I missed that news. I guess I'll have to put RDTK2 on my list.

I'll check it out.

Love them both but it’s creepy with their RL age difference. 13 years is a lot. And they look their respective ages.

It worked for Lee Ji Eun (IU) & Lee Joon Gi with their 11 year age gap (some say 12) and for Kim Go Eun & Gong Yoo with their 12 year age gap 🤔🤔🤔 To this day, people still freak out (in the good sense) and fan girl about any and every interaction between Lee Ji Eun & Lee Joon Gi

Scarlet Heart was not my fav. And I absolutely loathed Goblin. Goblin mostly for the age difference. Sorry...

The age difference in Goblin wouldn't have mattered this much if they hadn't insisted on her remaining a schoolgirl till the end.

So Moon Ga Young’s character will essentially be a mix of Chun Song Yi (albeit, no one—absolutely NO ONE— will ever fully be THE Chun Song Yi except Jun Ji Hyun ❤️❤️❤️) with her character in “Tempted” (forgot the character’s name) but less vindictive 👌🏻👌🏻 Okay....
I’m just glad that Moon Ga Young will be back in dramaland 🙂🙂

Yay, Kim Dong-wook! But a melo on a major network. Hmmmmm...

That writer though. She wrote Duel and worked with Song Jae-jung in QIHM and Nine. That's a plus, right?

I'm curious about casting sometimes. I like the both actors and I don't really care about difference of age but between this one and Nam Ji Hyun and Lee Joon Hyuk, it's not pair I would have imagined. It's not like they were lacking younger actors or older actresses.

Aw, I like these two. Didn't watch their previous dramas, but hope this one works out well.
