Looks like the unsolved Hwaseong murder cases is getting another look, one year later. First it was Bong Joon Ho’s classic film Memories of Murder (2003), which focused on two detectives trying to find the serial murderer. Then last Gapdong, starring Yoon Sang Hyun and Sung Dong Il, was also based on the Hwaseong murder cases but gave it a different spin, pitting the son of the main suspect and the main detective on the case against each other. And now finally, master of crime dramas Kim Eun Hee is taking a whack at it by remaking Memories of Murder.
Happy new year! And here it is – finally my year end review. There were a lot of ups and downs for me this year, as I feel I watched some good formulaic dramas, some dramas gone horribly wrong, and very little good dramas. But it still made for an interesting year, and it’s hard to believe that a lot of these dramas just aired in 2014!
