  • KIM Eun-hee to Pen the New Drama

    One of Bong Joon-ho’s signature films, Memories of Murder (2003), is going to be remade as a TV series. The TV drama, based on the same true story that inspired Memories of Murder, is about a serial murder case that happened in Hwa-sung in the 80s. SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System) confirmed that the series will be written by KIM Eun-hee, the pen behind popular series such as Sign and Ghost. The series is currently under the working title of Signal.
    In the original, the seasoned actors SONG Kang-ho and KIM Sang-kyung played detective in search of a brutal serial killer. A young woman is found raped and murdered, while more cases with similar characteristics follow in the remote town of Hwa-sung, and a special task force is set up to capture the murderer. Local detective PARK Doo-man is joined by a detective from Seoul named SEO Tae-yoon. But the search is faced with difficulties, and the detectives fall into despair. The film also stared Gyeongju’s PARK Hae-il.
    The series is expected to air by August, but an official announcement has not yet been made.
