While I’m not terribly devastated that upcoming drama Goodbye Mr. Black lost its time slot on SBS following soon-to-premiere drama The Village (Achiara’s Secret), overall it is something to lament because the cast of Moon Chae Won, Lee Jin Wook, Kim Kang Woo, and Song Jae Rim has the combination of charm and acting talent to pave over the usual bumps in drama narrative. While stranger things have happened before in terms of a drama losing a time slot only to maybe get it back again, or switch networks right away, looks like Goodbye Mr. Black really has kissed the post-Village time slot goodbye for good as SBS has lined up another drama for that coveted spot. The network is going to stick with the thriller/mystery genre with Remember (not to be confused with KBS‘s recent drama I Remember You), the story of a genius lawyer named Seo Woo Bin who suffers from a memory disorder but sets out to investigate and clear his set-up father of a murderous crime. The production is fast-tracking the casting that is looking for a male and female lead in their mid-twenties.
Directing will be PD Lee Chang Min who directed Birth of a Beauty, Midas, and Giant, and who was originally slated to direct Goodbye Mr. Black. The more intriguing news is that the script is from the hands of screenwriter Yoon Hyun Ho who co-wrote the hit movie The Attorney as well as the movie I am Father. I’m fine with this project in concept, it’s really going to come down to who ends up in the cast as the leads.
village premiere next week n this drama doesn’t have the lead yet, the cast will act without preparation for this drama, they just need to cast popular actor who has many fans n their fans just watch anything from them
Lee Jongsuk. He plays genius type characters perfectly.
the premise sounds to me like robert downey jr. movie the judge.
hope they at least take some talented actor cause they really don’t have enough time now. still it’s a bummer goodbye mr black will not happen i missed MCW..
I am guessing they will court LJS
Yeah, I think LJS will go with this one. Another genius role, but this time Lawyer? And SBS also loves him.
No LJS, to me his acting is average. Better JJS at least for me.
Yes for you, because for me jongsuk is the best, lol
JJS is 30plus. They’re looking for mid20’s actor
Hopefully not LJS…
excited to see who they will cast… :3
I know this will never happen T0T but wish it would be Yoo Seung Ho
Memory disorder… why do I think of Memento? Although, that is a good story and I don’t mind seeing it given korean treatment.
I’d rather boycott SBS. I am pretty pissed about Goodbye Mr. Black losing it’s spot. Enough to avoid SBS altogether. I am already going to not watch that Achiara Village for them throwing away Kim Jae-Wook from it and replacing him with that youngster who does not have half his experience. Goodbye SBS!
Mmm actually kjw role isn’t the role that sungjae take, they are different character
If jongsuk is the candidate of the male lead, I know why sbs throw away good bye mr black then…
If it’s true, SBS is just so meaaaaaaan LOL ??
What a timing! Wuli Jongsuk said he was going crazy with the need to act. The film he was considering got delayed and all the recent drama casting was finished until now! Personally I don’t think he is gonna take a role of genius with tragic family history again but he may be desperate enough since he said had resorted to acting out scenes in TV to himself at home.
God not ,not LJS ,I feel like I see him everywhere .
He hasn’t been working since Pinocchio though…
Hmm…how about a reunion of Lee Jongsuk and Kang Sora. Both are available now.
LJS Pls I So Much Love Him And Park Min Young Lol I Prefer Kang Sora Just Saying
“Genius”. Will it hurt to have a normal lawyer? Genius =/= interesting.
This instead of Goodbye Mr Black? No thank you!
