Remember is a story about Seo Jin Woo who tries to prove his father’s innocence for a crime he did not commit. He has perfect memory, and using that as his best weapon he fights for his father.
Although, this summary sounds very bland and boring, it’s actually not. I’m not the type of person who usually watches law dramas, I tend to go more for the cheesy ones (then roll my eyes at the cheesy parts). But, this drama was the best one I’ve ever watched.
I don’t have much to say about the characters in this drama, because they were all good (except for Lee In Ah, she kind of got on my nerves sometimes). I really liked how the writers didn’t really give Jin Woo his victory EVERY time he had a case. The reason I mention this is because most dramas set up the scene in such a way that the main character always wins every case. I could be wrong with some dramas, but for the ones I’ve watched, it’s always happened.
I have to applaud the evil side of this drama, they did such an outstanding job. I've never experienced such a hate/love feeling toward the antagonist in a kdrama before, and it was amazing. Also, I feel very happy with the fact that there were no love triangles in this drama. Thank you, writers for not pulling the "Triangle card".
One thing that I feel like I must say about this drama is that the court scenes are not bland and boring like how I expected it to be. Even though most of the drama revolved around the court scenes and Jin Woo’s father’s case, it was very interesting and I was so into watching this drama
I give this a 5/5
I would recommend this to anyone who would want to watch a very addicting drama (and also please be prepared to want this drama to continue until you die because OH MY GOSH, I DO)
Remember is a show that on paper sounds like it could be dry; you have the son vying to prove his father's innocence but that automatically means courtroom scenes that can often be boring. Luckily for us, this show manages to stay taut and thrilling despite the law talk.
The most important part of the show are the characters -and the writer who makes them so appealing. Everyone is well written and acted allowing for you to root for the good guys to win and the bad guys to fail. The definite lure though is Nam Gung Min who embraces his role as the big bad in a giant hug; it's so obvious he's loving the craziness and villainy of Gyu Man which makes for an entertaining watch as much as he infuriates you.
Kudos also has to go to the director who manages to keep the courtroom scenes entertaining, with great editing helping to build the tension.
A recommend for a fan of any of the leads or those who like law based shows.
