A chaebol with a short-memory syndrome, falls in love with a has been singer/actress .
Gong Ma Sung is a chaebol, a neuroscientist and successor to Sunwoo Company, which run a hospital amongst other things .
He was on a commercial enterprise stumble to China when he met an up and coming singer/actress Joo Gi Bbeum .
Their attraction to each other was moment. They spent a very eventful day in each other ’ south company and by the end of it, they agreed to be in a relationship .
Gong Ma Sung and Joo Gi Bbeum agreed to meet up late on that day at the lapp place before the night is over .
Gong Ma Sung was excited to see her again and was at their meeting place fairly early. He then went to the tattooist future door to get an ink of a flower, which meant memory, to signify the diabolically enjoyable day he spent with Joo Gi Bbeum. While at the tattoo living room, he overheard a couple of guys plotting something flagitious towards Joo Gi Bbeum .
He followed them as they left. He was thus distract that he runs towards a pass lorry. He ended up with his principal bleeding on the grind .
meanwhile, Joo Gi Bbeum waited for him for a long time until she can ’ t anymore. She went back to the hotel and met an actor who had been after her for ages, incidentally, he was one of the two men, who were plotting something against her .
This man added a small phial of powder to her cocktail while she was not looking. Before you know it she passed out and when she came to, she was in a bed in a hotel room next to a dead consistency of the actor, who gave her the pollute drink. The police were seeing to him .
nowadays, three years later…
Gong Ma Sung had forgotten everything about that sidereal day three years ago. well, he would as he suffers from the short-memory syndrome. ( I ’ ve just forgotten what comes next ! ! ! ) Poor Gong Ma Sung has become a lone calculate. He is sometimes taken advantage of and doesn ’ t remember it .
His memory lasts a day, so he writes everything he does each day and memorises for the next day. Though rather boring, he learned to live with it .
now Joo Gi Bbeum leading office is at its minimal. She doesn ’ metric ton want to remember what happened three years ago. To make ends meet, she ended up being bullied into doing rather demeaning on-line vlogs, including eating a hale live fish .
She ends up in the hospital, where her path crossed with Gong Ma Sung once again .
Gong Ma Sung mistakenly thought that Joo Gi Bbeum was the paparazzo who was waiting to take his photograph. He was preferably paranoid about having his photograph taken .
He grabbed the camera and threw it on the grow which broke the expensive lens. He then told her to go away .
She asked him “ Don ’ thymine you remember me ? He said, “ Are you crucial that you would be worth remembering ? ”
anyhow, Gong Ma Sung made an entrance to his diary of the things that happened to him that day, excluding his meet with Gi Bbeum as she was nothing to him .
The next dawn when he woke up and had a shower ( bonus picture LOL ) he started remembering Gi Bbeum .
Throughout the sidereal day he would think of her. He asked his secretary to look for the anonymous girl with his draw as the alone reference .
meanwhile, Gi Bbeum is trending on-line because of her latest video, where she was behaving like a daredevil to remove her badly fortune .
Go Mang Sung caught his secretary/PA in hysterics while watching the video recording. He got curious and saw that Gi BBeum is the same womanhood he wanted his PA to locate .
He found out that Gi Bbeum was besides running an on-line shop. He orders a large number of items in her shop and asked her to deliver it personally .
When they met, it did not end well. They angrily agreed never to see each other again .
But a few hours late Go Mang Sung barely can ’ thymine keep away from her and visits her house .
They got talking a little moment of the past. He asked her that possibly she pushed him away that is why they broke up .
Go Mang Sung gave her an ultimatum. She has to decide whether he remembers her tomorrow or delete her from his memory .
She told him to forget her and everything between them .
Despite trying to forget her, Go Mang Sung precisely can ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate. He went to his doctor friend who diagnosed him being in love with her .
He forgets everything that happens to him every day, but not about her. He thinks of her every single day .
For such a busy executive, he seems to have all the time in the world to go chase after Jo gi BBeum .
Go Mang Sung is quite indulgent of his cousin and bought him a production company. Their beginning augury up was Jo Gi Bbeum .
I was wondering why Go Mang Sung has the shoes and videotape player belonging to Jo Gi Bbeum in his house ?
It was just explained towards the first character of this sequence. The house he is living now used to belong to Jo Gi Bbeum, who was forced to sell all her belongings to meet all the fines for her contracts which were invalidated because of the scandal she was involved in three years ago .
I can ’ t believe how Choi Jin Hyuk has become more good looking now. His smile is barely so appeal and catching .
When he is trying to be cute, he can ’ thyroxine be any cunning .
This episode ended with Go Mang Sung going in place of Joo Gi Bbeum in a quiz usher. He was perfect in the round where it does not involve looking at a well-lit screen to look at the question but a different fib when he had to look at bright lights, which caused him to feel like dying .
This is a gem of an episode .
Choi Jin Hyuk is just perfective as a lead in a romantic play. I hope there is already another one lined up for him. He is such a rejoice – devilish joy with that smile that goes right through his eyes. Dreamy ! 🙂 🙂 🙂
anyhow, Go Mang Sung was out for the count for a couple of hours after his stint at the quiz indicate and ended improving in the hospital .
Joo Gi Bbeun, though followed him in the hospital, was misled that she was rather excess baggage as the live-in girlfriend of Go Mang Sung was about to visit. So she left the hospital without seeing him .
But she did not have to wait long to see him again as Go Mang Sung came to see her at her family .
They had a cute agaze contest moment, which was enough for Go Mang Sung because he had seen her. He then left and Joo Gi Bbeum was left all felicitous and agitate .
They agreed to meet up in his hotel bar but Lee Ha Im happened to be in the same hotel and accosted her. Lee Ha Im was aggressive but ended up slump on the floor witnessed by many people .
The disturbance attracted Go Mang Sung and seemed to favour Le Ha Im, which infuriated the already angry Joo Gi Bbeum. She left and was followed immediately by Go Mang Sung. He explained that it was his hotel so he had to take of the charwoman on the shock and he can not be in the centre of angry spat witnessed by many .
This did not pacify Joo Gi Bbeun, and I like her even more for it. She left and it seems they are back at square one .
Ki Joon invited Joo Gi Bbeun to attend a rather controversial shindig, the Odd Ball, for the amphetamine class, with him. She did look adorable in a buoyant white dress .
She met Go Mang Sung in the party who was surprised to see her there. He asked her to date for just one season. Joo Gi Bbeum was insulted. He clarified it clumsily, that it may lead to the early seasons as well but he just wanted to know if he could very handle her. test period. 🙂
Joo Gi Bbeum was having none of it despite Go Mang Sung begging her that he needed her as he was clinging to her for his survival .
This infuriate Joo Gi Bbeum. She told him that he does even begin to know what survival is ! She said that she had become dehumanize in order to survive not entirely for herself but to look after her family. She had to do anything to make a living, put food on the table. She then walks off .
The highlight of the party was the host putting Joo Gi Bbeum as the subjugate for a entire humiliation. He burnt a 10 million won and put the ashes into a field glass of wine. He then asked Joo Gi Bbeum to drink the wine for 1 billion won much to the hilarity of the audience who started chanting “ Drink it, Joo Gi Bbeum ”
Joo Gi Bbeum raised the glass and intoned 1 billion won and drunk the wine a lot to the repugnance of Go Mang Sung .
I tell you this drama is getting better and better and Choi Jin Hyuk alias Go Mang Sung is stealing every view that he ’ mho in .
Song Ha Yoon is a identical beautiful and competent actress but not in the league of her lead homo in terms of charisma .
But having said that they do exude oodles of chemistry together .
anyhow, the cliffhanger last night of Joo Gi Bbeum drinking the wine with the burn money did not end well for the host. At the last moment, she threw the perch of the beverage in his expression .
Joo Gi Bbeum then got the kiss of her animation when Go Mang Sung snogged her in front of the guests for the longest time .
They are now flirting up a storm and Go Mang Sung bought a window corner of a chocolate patronize for her single consumption to read her script, listen to her thoughts and such like. So cute .
Joo Gi Bbeum finally got her break into television. But her nasty ex-manager/guy sabotaged the world program by having the localization changed to the swim pool. He was mindful that Joo Gi Bbeum suffers from aquaphobia .
anyhow, Joo Gi Bbeum ended up being catapulted into the water and had closely drowned. however, because of her repute, her anti-fans increased in numbers. many were commenting that she was merely being a play queen .
Go Mang Sung who had been invited to participate in a nostalgic ‘ Meet your first love ’ suddenly became interest to be a contribution of the program .
He was sol vocal with his opinion about a new democratic actress, Lee Ha Im that he was trending. He was circus tent of the search engine list, thereby removing some of the estrus from Joo Gi Bbeum .
Joo Gi Bbeum was down on the doldrums. She went to the table by the window with her appoint on it and started to sob. then she saw the gorgeous Go Mang Sung outside, which she thought was merely a mirage until he put a earphone on her to calm her down .
I hope they tighten up the script a bite because these two episodes are a act dry .
I don ’ t actually understand why Joo Gi Bbeum is so dowdy and about fight tooth and nail against Ki-Joon when he tried to buy her good clothes .
seriously, I don ’ t truly understand how a pamper pop star/ actress fair three years ago would forget every justness in a fame life .
I am reasonably sure there are some cheap items of invest that are stylish therefore why should she suddenly dress up like a middle age charwoman. tied when she was better dressed, she still picked up a dress that is actually ill-fitting and why doesn ’ triiodothyronine she do something about her haircloth ? surely her newly agent/manager would have suggested for her to do a little make-over before he launched her back .
anyhow, Joo Gi Bbeum and Go Mang Sung was going on a date and adviced her to dress up. well, she waited and waited for him but once again, he was a no-show .
What she did not know was that Go Mang Sung had another of his memory backsliding. He seems to be forgetting more and however remembering more of the past, including how his aunt was wholly objectionable towards him when he was merely a child .
She told him that it was all his mistake that his parents died, he was an dead evil .
Young Go Mang Sung was sitting on the back seat of their car with his mother. He was happily playing with a play car, which he by chance dropped into the front seat. His father tried to reach for the toy while at the same clock driving the car. The accident killed his parents immediately .
Go Mang Sung besides found out that person has been doing some frauds in the company which has his key signature. He was advised by his adjunct to be leery of his aunt, who is the current CEO and besides of his repair .
The latest prognosis on him is that his brain is dying .
But at the lapp time, he is remembering more and he has now remembered Joo Gi Bbeum completely .
He asked her if they can be lovers .
Go Mang Sung was beginning to remember more and more and vaguely recalls that Joo Gi BBeum ’ s ex-manager is supposed to be involved in his accident three years ago .
Go Mang Sung knows that his time is very express until his brain last gives way. To take care of everything and how the money should be left to where he wanted it to go to, he gave a press conference that he will be leaving his luck to the nursing base which was his project .
He besides undid all the troubles his aunt caused Joo Gi Bbeum. He gave several bags of constitution and skin care to Gi Bbeum ’ s bristly baby to make her happy .
He paid the tuition fees of her buddy so he does not have to do part-time jobs between studying .
To the forefather, who has park fingers, he gave a cactus plant .
And to Joo Gi Bbeum, he allowed her to be felicitous by secretly hiring the busbar she takes to get home plate. There he had her record played much to her happiness and pride .
Go Mang Sung is getting more ill by the minute but he starts remembering more of what had occurred three years ago .
The nasty Joo Gi Bbeum ’ s ex-manager, Kim Bum Soo, had tried to have the death of the actor from three years ago be reopened and investigated due to new tell .
The attest was Joo Gi Bbeum/s cup of tea, which still contains the rest of the drugs that had killed the actor .
fortunately, Go Mang Sung last remembered what he catch at the tattoo living room three years ago involving buying the drugs from the tattooist who doubles up as a drug dealer. He sold the drug to Gi Bbeum ’ randomness coach who then told the actor to use it to drug Gi Bbeum to submission. Go Mang Sung was very specific in his description of the drug dealer, who was readily caught by the chinese patrol .
The ex-manager was going to be receiving his summon to court but ahead he told Go Mang sung that his accident was anything but .
This made Go Mang Sung think .
It has been revealed that the accident was indeed not an accident .
Go Mang Sung, personal doctor and hospital director, set up the accident. He hired person to run Go Mang Sung over .
now the doctor of the church is being blackmailed by the director .
It seems Go Mang Sung ’ mho aunt is the mastermind .
The coach, Kim Bun Soo, wanted a payment of 100 billion won to keep his talk closed .
Kim Bun Soo had enough presence of mind to guarantee that the Aunt and the sophisticate do not completely get away with the try murder of Go Mang Sung .
He went to GoMang Sung and gave him the secret record of his meeting with the aunt and doctor of the church. He encourages Go Mang Sung to do something to ensure that Gi Bbeum is protected from the cruelty of his aunt .
Go Mang Sung took his aunt to lunch and told him that he knew everything including the accident of three years ago .
He asked his aunt why she wanted him dead. He then said that she sometimes scares him but he had always loved her equitable like a beget and father rolled into one .
The aunt said that she hated him for all he stands. Because of a line in her forefather ’ sulfur will everything went to the firstborn male child of the family .
Go Mang Sung told his aunts that he will not do anything to her as he will forget about everything the adjacent day .
His aunt left him all alone in the restaurant sad and lone .
interim, Gi Bbeum was auditioning for a little part in a movie and it was a success .
She called Go Mang Sung to meet up but he merely could not face up to it and lied that he was far away when in fact he was only a few feet from her .
She then later found him unconscious .
The preview showed Go Mang Sung with a bag and ready to leave .
I reckon he will go to America or Europe for a more sophisticate treatment and come back a newfangled world. otherwise, it would barely be besides sad to end this drama of him being dead and gone .
Episode 15 & 16
15th is a bittersweet episode and would likely to bring you a few tears. I myself shed a few during the scenery between Go Mang Sung and his young cousin, Ki Joon .
Ki Joon was in truth the one that loved him unconditionally from the start, more than cousins but like true brothers .
When Go Mang Sung asked Ki Joon to possibly they should hug, Ki Joon was at first reluctant as this was not in truth male but he did hug his cousin. This was very move and I cried .
Yes, Go Mang Sung went abroad for discussion without telling Gi Bbeum, who he sent to America for an audition, while he went to Baltimore himself for discussion and reminisced sadly along a street of bistros remembering his brief time with Gi Bbeum in Hainan, China when they inaugural met .
actually, that was not the first clock time they met, as what is becoming coarse with a great deal of Kdrama love stories, the leads have normally had a forget childhood meet-up. 🙂
A random addition to this fib was when Gi Bbeum was four years erstwhile, she went camping with her dad near a river .
Her dad told her to stay put as he was going to go for a bitty. Gi Bbeum saw a flower, which is called Mountain Coronate Samworth. ( apparently, this bloom symbolises memory )
Young Gi Bbeum went to pick the flowers by the river bank but lost her foot and tumble down into the water system .
fortunately, a young Go Mang Sung was there to fish her out .
The little girl did not show any trauma at all, so how can she on the spur of the moment develop such phobia with water ?
very fallible and random scene !
The sequence started with Jang Woo-Jin, Go Mang Sung ’ s PA appearing before Gi Bbeum .
He said that Go Mang Sung was truly in a pretty bad shape the last time he saw him in Baltimore and then he fair abruptly disappeared .
And that was over a calendar month ago .
Past ahead a class by and by, Gi Bbeum is a democratic soap asterisk in an american english television .
She is immediately living at Go Mang Sung ’ south sign of the zodiac. She is however pining for him but she thought she should very get over him .
She asked Ki Joon, if she could redecorate. Ki Joon said to go for it .
But Go Mang Sung is not dead ; he had lost all his memories again. He was found by his Doctor Yoon wandering around in Baltimore .
After a year, Go Mang Sung is potent again but without his memories .
He had a joyful reunion with Ki Joon, who at first was scared that Go Mang Sung had completely forgotten him but on the reverse, he knows him by his name and besides his nickname of Gallileo. Again their scene was a touching one .
Gi Bbeum was shooting near the Healthy village when she wandered toss off near the fountain. She abruptly saw a quite familiar figure and of class, it was Go Mang Sung .
He did not recognise her but she confessed to him that they know each other a farseeing prison term ago. She then said that she had fallen for him .
A couple of months late, they are getting married for the one-fourth time as Go Mang Sung does not remember their former wedding .
He proposes to her every week .
It was a cute, light ending and everyone was felicitous for them, except probably his three aunts who are all in prison for staff maltreatment .
Go Mang Sung was a very big person, he forgave everyone that did him wrong, including Gi Bbeum ’ s ex-husband director, who I supposed did redeem himself in some ways. He was the one who confirmed to Go Mang Sung that his accident was anything but .
I like the history but I have to admit that I was not storm that this drama is not a popular wake choice because there are thus many things that are truly off-putting .
And these things are chiefly on the lead actress separate .
Don ’ t get me wrong, she is identical pretty but the script did not do her justice .
She was supposed to be a beautiful sing ace fair three years ago and however she drastically changed into a dowdy middle age woman with no common sense of style any. Most of the time she looked like a drown chicken 🙂 What the hell is that hairdo ? low ponytail and slurred bangs ? Nooo ! ! !
When she fell again with the gorgeous Go Mang Sung, she turned into a pure smirk aunt who at beginning would not sleep with him. What is that cutesy, short female child expressions ? not truly dainty for a thirty-year-old ajumma. She should be sensual not trying to be cunning. I am afraid by this time they have lost their chemistry in my eyes. He was constantly excessively well for her and needed a better script .
Go Mang Sung suffered indeed much injustice and bad fortune in his liveliness, the audience/viewer like me would have liked him to have given the baddies a short morsel of their own medicine and then he could have forgiven them afterwards, that would have sat better with the viewers. There should be department of justice in this earth .
But all in all still a watchable drama chiefly because of Cho Jin Hyuk .
But in the very end, the cast has a surprise singalong which was identical cheery, madly joyous ! ! !
