“Remember” tells the story of Pil Joo (Lee Seong Min), an Alzheimer’s patient who seeks revenge that he was planning for 60 years in search of the pro-Japanese who caused the death of the entire family, and In Gyu (Nam Joo Hyuk), a young man in his 20s who unintentionally gets involved in the revenge.
