If you want a good look at an extensive cast before casting news are even out for some of them, a script reading is the place to get it. "Memories of the Alhambra" is a suspense romance drama about investment company president Yoo Jin-woo going on a business trip to Granada, and becoming involved in a strange incident at an old hostel run by heroine Jeong Hee-joo.
In order to show a more polished result, the series started filming in May, making it a semi pre-produced piece. Attending the script reading along with writer Song Jae-jeong and PD Ahn Gil-ho were cast members Hyun Bin, Park Shin-hye, Park Hoon, Kim Eui-sung, Kim Yong-rim, Chanyeol, Lee Seung-joon, Min Jin-woong, Cho Hyun-chul, Lee Si-won, Han Bo-reum, Ryu Abel, Lee Hak-joo, Lee Jae-wook and more.
The related piece gives us a quick recap of the leading duo as well. Yoo Jin-woo (Hyun Bin) has a PhD in engineering, and he's a talented game developer and CEO for his investment company. Although he is adventurous to the point of recklessness, he is a very cynical person. Jeong Hee-joo (Park Shin-hye) is a Korean running a hostel in Granada, Spain. Although she is not great at managing her finances, she is an artistic and charming person.
One thing that particularly draws my attention about this batch of news is that the fantasy genre is no longer included in the drama's description. Does this mean that we can wave that whole virtual reality thing bye bye, or has that become a hidden twist? I hope it's not the latter, because not even my memory is bad enough for me to not expect that. Let's hope that the attention to production delivers a good piece when "Memories of the Alhambra" premieres in December.
