Lee Se-young, Yoo Seung-ho offered tvN supernatural-thriller Memorist
I’ve been waiting for this dramaland duo to happen forever! Lee Se-young (Doctor John) has just been offered the lead role opposite Yoo Seung-ho (My Strange Hero) in tvN’s upcoming drama Memorist.
It’s based on a popular Daum webtoon by the same name, about a police investigator who has the supernatural ability to read memories, and uses his ability to track down serial murderers. Yoo Seung-ho is being courted for this role, and Lee Se-young is up for the role of a criminal profiler who partners up with the investigator to solve cases together.
To be clear, while both actors have announced that they’re positively reviewing the script, they are not confirmed yet.
Yoo Seung-ho and Lee Se-young started out as child actors in the same time period (early 2000’s) starring in different hit sageuks (Queen Seondeok and Dae Jang Geum respectively), but it was only in 2012 that they were in a drama together (I Miss You), and they didn’t even have a meaningful connection in it. So I’ve been looking forward to their matchup for a while now, and I’m excited for it to happen.
Mystery-thriller Memorist, co-produced by director Kim Hwi (Neighbor) and PD So Jae-hyun (Forest of Secrets, 100 Days My Prince), is scheduled to air next year on tvN.
