It was Song Seung Hun who earlier made the news for possibility getting casted in screenwriter Kim Soo Hyun’s upcoming drama, Forget-Me-Not. However, the first casting confirmation comes from actress Soo Ae (Athena: Goddess of War), who was just announced to be cast in the role of its female lead.
Forget-Me-Not is a traditional melodrama featuring a love story between a woman who is losing her memory and a pure-hearted (지고지순한) man who takes responsibility for his love. Following in the footsteps of Shim Eun Ha of Trap of Youth, Lee Young Ae of Fireworks, and Kim Hee Ae of My Man’s Woman, there is already high anticipation for what Soo Ae will show as the newest lead actress of writer Kim Soo Hyun’s miniseries.
On her initiation to “Kim Soo Hyun’s gang” (김수현 사단), Soo Ae shared that she feels a mixture of a heavy sense of burden, anticipation, and excitement.
Penned by Kim Soo Hyun and directed by Jung Eul Young, who have worked on many hit dramas together, including Life is Beautiful, Mom’s Dead Upset, and My Man’s Woman, Forget-Me-Not is scheduled to premiere the last week of September, airing as a Monday-Tuesday drama after Warrior Baek Dong-soo on SBS.
