Episodes aired: 8 of 16 episodes (as of 14th July)
Also known as: Hello Monster
I don’t know what makes me watch it and I never regret it, in fact I love this drama! I guess it’s because of its genres, plot, teasers and the CASTS. Lee Jin Wook was supposed to take the male lead, however, I am glad he didn’t. (He went to take The Time I Loved You instead.)
After two actors (Lee Jin Wook and Lee Seng Yoon) turned the offer down, Seo In Guk took the male lead role. I am so glad that he took this role! The role, Lee Hyun, a genius profiler, definitely fits Seo In Guk! I can’t imagine Lee Jin Wook playing it, hah. 😛 I have seen him in Love Rain (I did not know it was him! He looked so different back then) and Master’s Sun. He definitely has charms. I think I should watch his other dramas too.
Lee Hyun’s smart thinking is what makes him look sexy (excuse me). He has such a sexy mind. Excuse me again. 😛 I totally love this character.
Jang Na Ra totally rocks her character in this drama as Cha Ji-an! I have seen her in School 2013 and Fated to Love You but her role in I Remember You is totally my favourite out of all her roles! She may look dumb or whatever, but she is such as badass.
She can even fight and kick ass well! I got to say that her action scenes are jjang! Anyway, Cha Ji-an is an elite policewoman. She has been ‘stalking’ Lee Hyun since young because of their relation to someone named Lee Joon-young (played by EXO’s Do Kyung Soo). She practically knows every of Hyun’s preferences and the corners of his house, hah.
I thought Park Bo Gum is cute, but his character, Jung Sun-ho, being suspicious and cute at the same time is what makes him look kind of creepy. Jang Sun-ho is a mysterious lawyer. As we have suspected from the first time he made appearance, he is really related to Lee Hyun. He looks nice on outside, but he is different on inside. (I am trying to make this post spoiler-free, but oh well) I am so looking forward to how Hyun is going to find out about Sun-ho’s real identity.
Lee Joon-ho (played by Choi Won Young) is a forensic doctor (or you can call him pathologist) and he is another mysterious one which his real identity is not revealed yet (as of episode 8). We suspect that he might related to Hyun too.
Team Leader Kang is as funny as the actor himself, Lee Chun Hee. He is great, however, his clumsiness is what always ruining his big moments, HAH. I like how this character brings lightness to the show, along with his team members, as well as the budding romance between Lee Hyun and Cha Ji-an, of course.
Speaking of romance sparks, Lee Hyun and Cha Ji-an do look good together! All thanks to the amazing chemistry between Seo In Guk and Jang Na Ra. It’s so nice to see Lee Hyun actually care for Cha Ji-an even though he finds it and her annoying. Hope to see more of their blossoming romance! I never thought I’d like romance in such a crime thriller drama.

This drama is just too good. Too good. Very interesting. Rom-com? Psychological thriller? Mystery? All these are in this drama. It will be the one I will be very MUCH looking forward to every week for new episodes since Kill Me, Heal Me. And one that will keep my attention throughout the show since both Healer and Kill Me, Heal Me.
To add on, I like how just ONE character from the past has a big impact on present of this drama, and that is Lee Joon-young. I gotta give Kyung Soo (aka D.O) for acting out this character really very well because he left such a great impression on the viewers.
As I am writing this, I really cannot wait for new episodes 9 and 10 this week (but finally)! Is Hyun suspecting Lawyer Sun-ho? [Spoiler alert! If you have not watched this drama yet, try not to read next.] I think Hyun might think that Sun-ho is really Min. Sun-ho must be really jealous that he is closer with Ji-an. And Sun-ho might have thought that his brother abandoned him to Lee Joon-young when they were young, however what Sun-ho doesn’t know that is Hyun has lost part of his memories. I hope for a nice reunion, not the creepy or bad one. xD And I, and the viewers, are so curious about Lee Joon-ho’s real identity that he might be grown-up Lee Joon-young.
