Yoo Seung Ho And Lee Se Young Each Use Their Different Strengths To Catch A Serial Killer In “Memorist”
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “Memorist” is a mystery thriller that follows Dong Baek, a detective with supernatural powers (played by Yoo Seung Ho), and Han Sun Mi, a genius profiler (played by Lee Se Young), as they join forces to hunt down a mysterious serial killer.
In the first episode that achieved strong viewership ratings, Dong Baek and Han Sun Mi traced a mysterious kidnapper in their own ways. Dong Baek used his supernatural ability of memory scanning to track down the culprit’s identity while Han Sun Mi utilized her keen observation skills and her investigation team to find the culprit’s location. The episode ended with Dong Baek kicking Oh Yeon Tak (played by Bang Joon Ho), the CEO of an entertainment agency, in the face.
On March 12, “Memorist” gave a sneak peek of the second episode. Dong Baek is chasing after someone while wearing a mask and hat to cover up his identity, and Han Sun Mi is gazing at someone with a cool, levelheaded expression.
The photos also show a glimpse of Lee Shin Woong (played by Jo Sung Ha), Koo Kyung Tan (Go Chang Suk), and Oh Se Hoon (Yoon Ji On). Han Sun Mi and Lee Shin Woong face off with tension, and Koo Kyung Tan and Oh Se Hoon team up to investigate together.
The production crew commented, “A shocking fact about the claw hammer case will be revealed. Please wait and see the truth Dong Baek and Han Sun Mi will uncover using their own methods and what the clues Dong Baek captures with his memory scan will mean.”
Episode 2 will air on March 12 at 10:30 p.m. KST, but starting from episode 3, “Memorist” will air during its usual time slot on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 10:50 p.m. KST.
