tonton, Malaysia’s pioneer OTT platform has joined forces with Malaysia’s famous YouTuber brother duo, The Ming Thing (TMT), in creating a new original series “I, REMEMBER” premiering exclusively on tonton 20th May 2018.

The series tells the story of Hafiq (played by Jad Hidhir), a socially awkward young man with an unusually perfect memory and recall. Due to his supernatural ability to remember, he faces each day either with pure excitement or total dread. However, undisclosed to many, his special gift exposes him to exploitation by those seeking profits and power in life. One day, a sudden turn of event took that power away from him, robbing him of his identity and the trust of those around him.
The audience will follow Hafiq’s journey as he seeks answers to his sudden memory loss and how he copes with an intricate and unpredictable new set of emotions. Find out if Hafiq can survive his emotional, mental and physical ordeal as he races against time searching for remedies and answers for his abrupt memory loss.
Despite being their first series project with tonton, The Ming brothers Ho Ming Han and Ho Ming Yue have lined up a star-studded award-winning cast starring in this exclusive original web series. Award-winning actor Alvin Wong (2012 Golden Awards’ Best Supporting Actor) graces the series alongside popular casts such as Emily Chan, Louisa Chong, and Ho Ming Yue himself. Meanwhile, the series also introduces fresh new faces such as Jad Hidhir and Karan Hundal with a special appearance of award-winning actress, Sharifah Amani (2005 Malaysian Film Festival’s Most Promising Newcomer Award, 2006 Malaysian Film Festival’s Best Actress Award) playing Hafiq’s mother.
