Korean Drama Review : Kill Me, Heal Me (Hangul: 킬미, 힐미)

It was so nice to finally see Ji Sung star in a new television drama, I been anticipating upon learning about this. It has been 4 years since the  last time I saw him act in Protect the Boss (Oh! except on his wedding announcement btw, it was all over the news, Gee! can't believe his married and now father to their first born daughter Kwak Ji Yoo who was born last June 12, 2015)

Kill Me, Heal Me is story about Cha Do-hyun (played by Ji Sung) a son of a wealthy family– who has seven different personalities (other known as Dissociative Identity Disorder) after faced terrible experience during his childhood. Do Hyun has to share his life with his other six personalities: 

  • Shin Se Gi - he is violent but he never hurts children and women. He appers when Do-hyun experiences violence.
  • Perry Park - his a weirdo, likes to drink alcohol and speaks 
  • Ahn Yo Sub - a 17 year old boy and an artist who like to commit suicide every time he appears. He is also Yo-na's twin brother.
  • Ahn Yo Na - a mischievous 17-year old girl who loves idols and has a crush with  Oh Ri On.
  • Nana - a little girl who named her teddy bear as Nana.
  • Mr. X. - a mysterious guy who is later revealed as Nana's father.
Each personality shows distinctive characters. And then one day, he met a psychiatry resident Oh Ri Jin (played by Hwang Jung Eum), who is willing to help him heal himself.

However, Ri Jin’s twin brother and a popular writer Oh Ri On (played by Park Seo Joon) also seemed to know Do Hyun since the very first time they meet on the plane. He knows that somehow Do Hyun and Ri Jin were connected to each other since they were young. His been secretly investigating Do Hyun's family background. And later tried to take advantage of his disease for his next novel, when he found out Do Hyun's personality disorder.

This drama has full package of genres, from drama, comedy, romance, to mystery! At first I find it super cool, and I was pretty impressed with the story line and Do Hyun's character. But on the long run i find it a little too monotonous for my liking. So I end-up skipping some episodes. BUT I HAVE TO GIVE JI SUNG A BIG CREDIT FOR HIS EXCELLENT ACTING SKILLS. HE DID A GOOD JOB IN THIS DRAMA. INDEED HIS ONE OF KOREA'S GREAT ACTOR IN HIS GENERATION. Park Seo Joon and Hwang Jung Eum did a good job as well they both executed there role nicely and perfectly. I'm impressed! Considering its my first time to see them act (As far as I remember).

Spoiler Alert! Read at your own risk!!!

  • Do Hyun and Ri Jin were childhood friend and used to live in the same house. Because Ri Jin mom is married to Do Hyun's father. Ri Jin's identity was keep secret until Do Hyun's grandfather decided to adopt her as his grandchild because at the time Do Hyun's dad was being disowned by his grandfather because he was living with Do Hyun's mom who his grandfather objected.
  • When Do Hyun's father decided to go back to his family, he was surprised to find out that his wife as a child and was very mad. He confronted his wife. While they were having confrontation Do Hyun's grandmother heard everything and decided to keep Ri Jin away from public eye. She was keep in a basement. The main reason why shes claustrophobic.
  • Ri-jin's real name is actually Do Hyun. When grandmother find out everything, they decided to name Ji Sung as Do Hyun because everyone from there circle of friends know that she had a grandchildren name Do Hyun.

Some of my Favorite Highlights:

  • Episode 7 - It explained the reason why the show titled “Kill Me, Heal Me”.

  • Episode 11 - Where in Oh Ri Jin and Oh Ri On performed the Team Rocket chant then going on their separate way without a word. That was too cute! This two are adorable. And Oh! Episode 7 has fair share of cuteness too, that's when time the Oh Ri On family took out their selfie stick proudly and posing together for the camera prior to Oh Ri Jin’s departure to US. His dad is a sweetheart. Really cute moments in there.
