Upcoming fantasy drama "Memories of the Alhambra" is dipping its toes in the promotional game with the release of its first stills for Hyun Bin's Yoo Jin-woo. They're not descriptive of any plot points or otherwise dramatic, but a first look doesn't really have to be, especially for a very marketable leading man.
Hyun Bin plays Yoo Jin-woo, the manly and humorous CEO of an investment company, who also holds a PhD in Engineering. When he takes a business trip to Spain after facing some hard times, he and his hostel owner (played by Park Shin-hye) become entangled in a mystery.
There was this whole virtual reality idea floating around during the drama's early stages, but as I haven't been following its production for a while, I am not sure if it's still in place. Perhaps it's intended as a twist further into the story. I would love to see more sci-fi from Korean drama, but a fantasy mystery sounds appealing nonetheless.
I hope that writer Song Jae-jeong can create a coherent, well-structured and sensible plot for "Memories of the Alhambra", because my past experience with her work does worry me. The drama will be coming out on tvN in November, so we have a lot of time and promotional goodies to go.
