"Remember" increased its ratings, as viewers tuned in for the dramatic introduction of the murder trial involving Seo Jae Hyuk (Jeon Kwang Leol), a seemingly harmless man with Alzheimer's disease.
According to Nielsen Korea, the SBS crime series recorded 9.7 percent in nationwide viewership, an increase of 2.5 percent from its premiere.
The second episode opened as Seo Jin Woo (Yoo Seung Ho) and Lee In A (Park Min Young) served as bystanders to the spectacle surrounding Jae Hyuk, as he entered the court.
As the son of an alleged murder, Jin Woo was pelted by eggs and bore the brunt of criticism from the media and ordinary citizens.
While the prevailing sentiment of spectators including the public defender assigned to the case relies on the assumption that Jae Hyuk is guilty, In A supports Jin Woo in his stance that his father is innocent.
In one of the most comical scenes of the episode, In A rescues Jin Woo from an illegal gambling parlor, where he attempts to use his abilities to win money that could fund a stronger defense team.
In A appears in her pizza delivery uniform and helps him escape from the den of enraged gangsters.
"Remember" evokes the emotionality of the 2013 crime drama, "I Can Hear Your Voice," which was marked by the superhuman abilities of Park Soo Ha (Lee Jong Suk), a young man who possessed the ability to hear the thoughts of those around him.
While hyperthymesia, the condition that afflicts Jin Woo exists, its rarity makes it an equally appealing plot device.
Meanwhile, ratings for the KBS2 period drama, "The Merchant Gaekju 2015" declined by 0.2 percent with its terrestrial broadcast. MBC's family series, "Sweet Savage Family" also experienced decreased viewership, with 6.2 percent, as 0.8 fewer viewers tuned in.
