Review – I Remember You / Hello Monster
I will remember this show… until I’m dead. I am a sucker for sympathetic villains and this drama featured not one but TWO.
Plot: Basically, two young brothers are separated in childhood after one is kidnapped by a teenage serial killer. The story is what happens when they are reunited in adulthood… including the reunion with the serial killer.
To say that I loved this show is an understatement. I love a lot of dramas. If I didn’t love K-dramas, I wouldn’t bother with this blog. There are tons of great K-dramas. And for every K-drama, there is one that seems made… if you can find it… just for you. As if K-World read your diary, said, “Oh, you like this, eh?” and created a drama and wrapped it up like a present, tied it with a bow, and put your name on it. This drama HAUNTED ME. The romance and the cop shenanigans and the mystery plot lines were all awesome, but the center of this story is about nature vs nurture. Do we create monsters or are they born? Can they change? Can they learn? Can a monster evolve into a human being?
I’m not even using poetic license when I say I had dreams about this show. I literally had dreams about this show.
Overall Rating – 12/10. Monsters Make Their Own Families.
Much Much Much Rambling, Character Explorations, Themes, And Massive SPOILERS follow… so, you know, you have been warned.
