On November 21, news outlet Sports Chosun reported that Lee Se Young was cast as the lead actress in tvN’s upcoming drama adaptation of “Memorist.”
Based on the popular webtoon of the same name, “Memorist” will be a mystery thriller that tells the story of Dong Baek, a detective with supernatural powers who loses his memory, as he stumbles upon a mysterious case of serial murders.
According to the report, Lee Se Young was offered the role of Han Seo Mi, a profiler who works with Dong Baek. Yoo Seung Ho was previously confirmed to be in talks for the role of Dong Baek.
Later in the day, a source from Lee Se Young’s agency Prain TPC confirmed, “Lee Se Young is positively considering appearing in ‘Memorist.’”
If Lee Se Young and Yoo Seung Ho both agree to appear in “Memorist,” they will be reuniting after eight years. They previously co-starred in the MBC drama “I Miss You” in 2012.
