We’ve got a casting confirmation guys! It completely caught me off guard actually, because I’ve been waiting for confirmation about whether my Heon oppa would be coming back to the small screen. Turns out he’s still mulling the script, but maybe this will tip the scales for him. Su Ae (Athena, 9 Ends 2 Outs) has been confirmed as the female lead for the upcoming Kim Soo Hyun-penned weekday melodrama Forget Me Not.
Su Ae will play a woman who has lost (or is losing) her memory, and has a poignant love story with a man who is mourning the loss of an unforgettable love. Directing will be PD Jung Eul Young who also collaborated with Kim Soo Hyun on her last drama Life is Beautiful, which was complimented for breathtakingly capturing Jeju, which was where that drama was set. This is totally weird, but for some reason I’m in the mood for a melo. This craving hits once in a blue moon, but when it does, I get so swept away in the dramatic angst.
I love Su Ae but she has such an unknown factor. She either has incredible chemistry with her co-star (Lee Byung Hyun, Lee Jung Jin) or such a negative chemistry that it’s like the arctic froze over (with my I Lub You Jung Woo Sung in Athena). If Song Seung Heon takes the lead role, I’m going to keep my fingers-crossed for the pairing to simmer and sizzle.
