Over at OKC, Healer was a resounding success! It’s going to be a tough one to follow up on. This round we’ve decided to put up an idea we’ve been kicking around for a while — Moderators Choice! Yes, each of the four moderators chose a drama we’d like the show to discuss (I managed to refrain from putting Doctor Champ up again….barely) and you vote which one you think you’d like to watch. Easy enough. Ready for your choices?
Who Are You
Synpsis: Two police detectives who work together are polar opposites. One has the ability to communicate with ghosts and the other doesn’t believe anything he can’t see or touch. Detective Yang Si On (So Yi Hyun) and her partner, Detective Cha Geon Woo (Taecyeon), are in charge of the lost-and-found center within the police department. But after coming out of a coma after six years, Si On has the ability to see the spirits that are attached to the objects in the lost-and-found center. Gun Woo tries to help her resolve these unclaimed items, reluctantly believing Si On’s abilities, especially as he starts to fall in love with her. But what happens when one of the ghosts hanging around is Lee Hyung Joon (Kim Jae Wook), Si On’s former boyfriend who was killed in the line of duty? “Who Are You” is a 2013 South Korean drama series directed by Jo Hyun Tak.
I Remember You
Synopsis: When a serial killer strikes women who all have a similar appearance, the police department’s Special Crime Investigation Team is stumped. While Cha Ji An (Jang Nara), an elite detective, and her fellow colleagues are assessing the latest crime scene, the mysterious Lee Hyun (Seo In Guk) shows up and instantly assesses the trademark attributes of the killer. Hyun is a genius criminal profiler with a degree in criminal psychology who received an anonymous email that brought him to the crime scene all the way from the United States. The serial killer seems to be sending a personal message to Hyun with the clues he leaves behind, and Hyun wonders if it could be related to an escaped criminal “monster” from his childhood who killed his father and was responsible for the disappearance of his younger brother. Ji An has known Hyun since childhood and is ecstatic to see her childhood crush again, but Hyun doesn’t seem to remember her. With no leads to capture the serial killer, Ji An and her colleagues solicit Hyun’s help. Can Hyun and Ji An solve the case and find answers to their pasts? “I Remember You” is a 2015 South Korean drama series directed by No Sang Hoon.
Synopsis: Many of us had dreams when we were younger about the the life we want to lead when we grow up. For Jang Geu Rae (Im Siwan), it was to become a professional baduk player (a game that involves chess-like strategies and skills). But when his life took an unexpected turn and he couldn’t pursue his gaming plans, the down-and-out Geu Rae is forced to get an office job and goes to work as an intern at a large company. There, he feels like a fish out of water and relies heavily on the kindness of the reserved fellow intern Ahn Yeong Yi (Kang Sora), tries to please his new boss, Section Chief Oh Sang Sik (Lee Sung Min), and keep up with the ambitious intern Jang Baek Gi (Kang Ha Neul). Geu Rae also faces animosity from the other interns because they think he is a nepotism hire — getting the highly coveted internship position with only a GED and no work experience. As Geu Rae tries to keep his head above water in the cubicle world, can he use the strategies from the game of baduk to survive in the corporate world? “Incomplete Life” is a 2014 South Korean drama series directed by Kim Won Suk. It is based on the popular online comic “Misaeng” by Yoon Tae Ho.
