[K-Drama] Gap Dong/Gabdong (Memories of Murder)

Gap dong/Gabdong (Memories of Murder) is a criminal investigations drama about serial killings based on the real "Hwa-seong serial murders," which occurred from 1986 to 1991 in the Taean Neighborhood of Hwaseong, South Korea. Ten women were raped and murdered during that time period. The real life case also inspired 2003 movie "Memories of Murder".

The story begins with Moo-Yeom, a detective and works to capture the killer Gap Dong. 20 years ago Moo-Yeom's (Yoon Sang-Hyun) father was a suspect in the "Gap Dong" serial murder case. Because of the detectives' oppressive investigation, Moo-Yeom's father killed himself. The statue of limitations has expired for the serial murder case and Moo-Yeom resigns to the belief that Gap Dong is dead. A new clue though for Gap Dong appears in front of Moo-Yeom and he sets out to catch him once and for all.

The drama features Yoon Sang-hyun, Kim Min-jung, Sung Dong-il, Lee Joon and Kim Ji-won as the main characters.

Yoon Sang-hyun played the role as Ha Moo-yeom

A detective in Iltan Police Department's violent crimes unit. He vows to avenge his wrongly accused father.

Kim Min-jung played the role as Maria Oh

A psychiatrist with a mysterious double life and a suspicious curiosity for all things Gap-dong.

Sung Dong-Il played the role as Yang Cheol-gon

He was a police inspector at the time of the original murders, and is now a well-decorated officer. Upon receiving his latest promotion, he surprises his superiors by requesting to be assigned back to Iltan, because he wants to end his career by capturing Gap-dong. Still convinced that Moo-yeom's father was the killer, he is extremely prejudiced against Moo-yeom, which makes for a combative working relationship.

Lee Joon played the role as Ryu Tae-oh

An inmate of a prison psychiatric hospital, who becomes a barista after his release. With a genius IQ of 150, his excellent and detailed memory may prove valuable to cracking the case, but he also happens to have the disposition to be a dangerous psychopath, and considers Gap-dong his god and hero.

Kim Ji-won played the role as Ma Ji-wool

A 17-year-old high school student and webtoon artist with the pen name "Matilda." Ji-wool becomes pivotal to the case when her webtoon titled The Beast's Path ends up foretelling the crimes. When she becomes the killer's next target, it also serves as a set of clues to find him.

The first episode of Gap dong was aired last April 11, 2014. It takes over the tvN Fri & Sat 20:50 time slot previously occupied by "Emergency Couple". It was directed by Jo Soo Won with the Screenwriter Kwon Eun Mi.
