South Korean directors believe to experiment with wide-ranging genres. Memories of the Alhambra directed by Ahn Gil-ho gives its audience blended themes including thriller, adventure, romance as well as science fiction. This South Korean series was first released as a cable television program which attracted huge audience because of its twisted plots. The season 1 is now available on the streaming platform, Netflix for its global spectators.
Memories of the Alhambra takes its audience into the world of ‘augmented reality” or AR along with Yoo Jin-woo and Jung Hee-joo. Although the film has much to tell about this world but it successfully shows the thin connection between these two worlds. This Korean drama which was initially launched on a television channel, tvN has become the highest rated Korean cable TV drama.
The Korean classic initially introduces the viewers with Yoo Jin-woo, CEO of a company. The story opens up slowly when Jin-woo receives a mysterious message about an AR game. As soon as he got the message, he flew to Spain to meet the owner of the letter. But his life had something else to offer and he ended up meeting a hostel owner, Jung Hee-joo.
Ahn Gil-ho very interestingly changed the emotion and the feelings of romance and adventure soon evolved. Not only this, it gradually takes the audience into the world of science fiction where the character will be entangled between the real and virtual world.
Season 2 which is soon going to release will answers many unknown facts and surely going to open the mysteries. It will dip into these two worlds which will leave the viewers awestruck. Moreover, the first part neither put light on the lead characters’ histories nor it explained why did they become tech geeks. So, there is a hope that the Season 2 will bring answers to many such questions.
Memories of the Alhambra stars Hyun Bin who plays the role of the CEO. He was seen in many Korean dramas including “My Name is Kim Sam-soon”, “Worlds Within”, “Secret Garden”. Along with him, the series showed another prime female character played by Park Shin-Hye. Season 2 can show many more new faces along with these old cast.
Memories of the Alhambra was initially shot in Spain while the later work was completed in South Korea itself. Ahn Gil-ho took the right decision to release this first on a cable TV channel. The first season revolves around 16 episodes of one hour each. The first episode dropped on 1st December 2018. While the final or the 16th episode was released on 20th January 2019.
Its been almost 1 year since its last episode which left the audience with a sense of curiosity. The series ended with a lot of mysteries and since then everyone is looking forward to season 2. Although there is no official announcement from the crew member, however there is a hope that it is going to arrive by next year.
