Stills of crime-solving duo Yoo Seung-ho and Lee Se-young released for Memorist

New still cuts have been dropped for upcoming drama Memorist, featuring Yoo Seung-ho (My Strange Hero) and Lee Se-young (Doctor John). Based on a webtoon by the same name, Memorist is about how a police detective with a state-registered supernatural ability teams up with an elite profiler to solve the case of a serial murderer.

Unlike the traditional superhero that hides his identity, Yoo Seung-ho plays a supernatural investigator who refreshingly declares his abilities outright and uses them for the public good. He has the ability to perform “memory scans” whenever he touches someone. Is anyone else getting That Psychometric Guy vibes?

Despite his “memory scan” abilities, he’s a lower level police official because of a previous history of using excessive force. In terms of personality, he’s very simple and direct with a strong dedication to justice, and somehow that makes his actions more unpredictable at times. Regarding his character, Yoo Seung-ho said that even though he might seem reliable and emotionally steady, he feels the pain of victims through their memories and is affected by each experience.

Lee Se-young plays the geeenius profiler who has a penetrating eye that hones in on weaknesses and flaws. She’s a chic character, with amazing specs, and currently serves as the youngest ever police superintendent. Although she approaches her cases with a logical cool-headedness, she lives with a fiery passion to catch criminals. With her intelligence and tenacity, she pursues even cold cases to their ends. Despite passing the bar exam at a young age and ranking first nationally, a sudden desire to do fieldwork sparked by a certain case led her to switch career paths from prosecutor to police officer.

tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Memorist, directed by Kim Whee (The Neighbors), So Jae-hyun (Forest of Secrets) and Oh Seung-yeol (Chief of Staff), and written by Ahn Do-ha and Hwang Hana, will begin airing on March 11.

Any bets on whether the serial killer has amnesia? Have to make it challenging somehow.

Or split personalities?

I like this. Tell me more. I'm thinking the amnesia though, which is unfortunate because split personality could be fun.

Actually, Yoo Seung-ho himself is the bad guy who has split personalty and he is actually chasing himself. However, in the final twist, it is seen that he is faking the whole split personality thing and he only has one personality which is actually a bad guy. So, more like Psychometric Guy meets Primal Fear. Also, the two main characters have already met each other as children for some reason.

My thoughts exactly. I didn't know one could doubt YSH's acting ability. Lol. LSY, maybe.

That last pic of him looks a lot like Kim Nam Gil. It's the hair, but something else too... Maybe looking intent but soft?

I love that she is the genius and I pray they don't dumb everyone down so she can seem smart or that God forbid he can seem to be the smartest.

I wouldn't believe it usually of a kdrama but YSH tends to choose roles where the male lead is more emotionally vulnerable and the female lead is smarter and more capable. I do have high hopes for this, even though I'm trying not to.

REALLY love this pairing. YSH needs someone strong to play off of, and LSY has just the right acting skill and energy. They're going to bring out the best in each other, performance-wise. Can't wait for this one!

This is the one I'm really looking forward to, although I'm trying not to because I don't want to be let down from my own expectations.

Ohs my god, it's like dramaland knew exactly what to get me for my birthday. Please be good! I love her AND I love that her character description is the kind that usually only male characters get to have. Women can be geeeeniuses too y'know.

What amazing cast. I want to give it a try because of them but not sure about the story.

Same - the story seems a bit of a rehash/ripoff of previous dramas. I would like to think that the cast will carry it, but having seen some really bad directing and editing (looking at you, Forest) will wait and see.

I really like both artists, but I am not very fond of serial killers. I am not fond of any killer at all. There are enough in real life 😞

I think that whole serial killer and then 20 years later copycat killer has been done to death lately.

I do like both actors but serial killers do not appeal to me. There are lots of other options available in March which are must see. I will wait for reviews.
