A TIME TO REMEMBER
Park Tae Suk (Lee Sung Min) is a ruthless lawyer who does whatever it takes to win his cases. When he becomes diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he realizes how he’s taken everything he holds dear for granted and reevaluates his life and the choices he’s made. He puts all of his energy into fighting one last case before his memory starts to fade away.
THINK I DO REMEMBER HOW TO DO ONE OF THESE POSTS
It’s been so long since I last did one of these that I don’t know if I remember how to do one. I don’t think I did one once last year but I’m going to try to better about getting these out. It’s nice to be able to talk about shows that are currently running. There are times when I start off loving a show only to be disappointed at the end. Also, there are those American shows that I don’t have the time to do full reviews or shows that I’ve given up midway that it’s a nice way to recap some thoughts on those shows.
Lee Sung Min has played a wide variety of supporting character roles over the course of his career. Recently, I think we’ve been embracing him more in the lead roles, especially after playing the inspiring Section Chief Oh in Misaeng. In his latest work, Memory, he plays a talented but heartless lawyer who would do anything for his clients. And yet, the thing that draws me to Lee Sung Min is that when his character is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he manages to make us empathize with him.
