3 Memories Discovered So Far In The Mysterious Forest Of Park Hae Jin And Jo Bo Ah’s Drama “Forest”
The mysterious forest in KBS2’s “Forest” keeps unraveling new memories!
“Forest” stars Park Hae Jin and Jo Bo Ah and tells the story of a man who has everything except a heart and a woman who only has her heart. They meet in a mysterious forest and must uncover its secrets. The suspenseful drama has topped viewership ratings for three weeks straight, starting from its premiere. Here are three memories that this mysterious forest has subtly shown so far.
The memory that led Kang San Hyuk to first place
Kang San Hyuk (played by Park Hae Jin) discovers that one cannot enter the storage room that holds the document containing the history of the 119 Rescue Unit with just his probationer qualification. He makes a request to Bong Dae Young (Ryu Seung Soo), asking to be made into an official crew member if he places first in their newcomer training. He chooses to take a direct route to quickly reach the end but instead gets caught up in a current. Once he collects himself and gets back to shore, he sees a hollow in the forest, where he watches children enter, claiming that they will soon be able to return home this way. Kang San Hyuk is also reminded of his childhood self exploring the forest with his friends Choi Chang (No Kwang Sik) and Oh Bo Mi (Jung Yeon Joo), arousing curiosity among viewers about whether his memory has to do with Choi Chang.
Jung Young Jae’s memory of high school with Oh Bo Mi
After making a proposal to the 119 Rescue Unit, Jung Young Jae (Jo Bo Ah) is on her way home when she discovers an elderly man passed out in front of their house. She rushes over to someone frantically calling out for the man, and there, she is shocked to run into Oh Bo Mi, whom she attended high school with. After getting the old man the appropriate treatment, the two angrily argue in Oh Bo Mi’s car. Later, the two meet again in front of the Rescue Unit, but they are cold to one another, raising questions about what happened between them during their school days.
The memory of a clam in a lake on the mountainside lake where there aren’t even any streams
The day after his group training, Kang San Hyuk returns to the hollow and tries to remember his memories associated with the area. He runs into Jung Young Jae who is on a walk on her day off, and the two make their way to a nearby lake in the mountains where there aren’t even any streams. Here, Jung Young Jae discovers a clam smaller than a centimeter and shows it to Kang San Hyuk out of fascination. He looks at it sternly and begins to film every bit of the lake, making viewers wonder why he is curious and how this will impact his resort.
The producers shared, “Kang San Hyuk and Jung Young Jae are enhancing the plot of the drama by becoming involved with the stories held inside the forest. Starting from episode 13 and 14, the two characters will get closer to the mysterious forest and the ‘Pandora’s box’ within it. Please look forward to it.”
KBS2’s “Forest” airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10 p.m. KST.
