tvN Memorist holds first script reading with Lee Se-young, Yoo Seung-ho
New stills have been released featuring the cast and crew of tvN’s upcoming supernatural-thriller Memorist. The team gathered together for the show’s first script reading and actors Yoo Seung-ho (My Strange Hero), Lee Se-young (Doctor John), Jo Sung-ha (Arthdal Chronicles), and Go Chang-seok (Boyfriend) as well as other supporting cast were present.
The drama is based on a popular webtoon, also called Memorist, with Yoo Seung-ho and Lee Se-young in leading roles.
Yoo plays the character of Dong Baek, a police officer who possesses the power to read people’s memories. Unlike most superheroes who conceal their identity, Yoo’s abilities are public knowledge and he uses his superpowers to help capture criminals and villains through his work. His most recent case however, has been trickier to solve and he works together with Lee Se-young in order to chase down a mysterious serial killer called “Absolute Evil.”
Lee Se-young plays the role of criminal profiler Han Sun-mi. With exceptional credentials, intelligence, and capabilities, she is the top in her field and rose through the ranks quickly despite her young age. In terms of personality, she comes across as prickly and cold. However, she is passionate about her work and is more determined than anyone to bring justice to all criminals.
In supporting roles, Jo Sung-ha plays the head of one of the police force’s departments and Go Chang-seok plays Yoo Seung-ho’s police team leader.
On the production side, directing will be done collaboratively by PD Kim Hwi (Neighbors, The Tooth and the Nail) and PD So Jae-hyun; the writing team will be led by Ahn Do-ha and Hwang Hana.
tvN’s new drama Memorist is currently set to premiere in March 2020.
