Kill Me, Heal Me Korean Drama Review

Kill Me Heal Me Korean Drama - Ji Sung

Kill Me, Heal is a comedy drama about Cha Do Hyeon (Ji Sung), a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder stemming from a tragic incident in his past.  He meets Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung Eum), a first year psychiatry student, and eventually asks for her help in treating his disorder.

Kill Me, Heal Me is simply an amazing drama.  Ji Sung’s portrayal of Cha Do Hyeon was so engaging, and he really brought to life each distinct personality.  I was so touched by Cha Do Hyeon’s struggle, yet I was still able to connect with each personality and see their importance.

The drama includes some wonderful comedy to lighten the mood surrounding Cha Do Hyeon’s illness.  I felt that the comedy was used appropriately and further enabled the audience to connect with his character on many levels.

At the same time, the drama makes you fully aware of how devastating this illness is to Cha Do Hyeon’s life.  It complicates his work and social life to such a degree that he has basically had to suffer alone by keeping it a secret.

That all changes when Oh Ri Jin comes in to his life.  She immediately develops a strong compassion for him.  One of Cha Do Hyeon’s personalities, Shin Se Ki, also pursues her, which further complicates Oh Ri Jin’s feelings.

The mystery surrounding Cha Do Hyeon’s traumatic incident that broke his mind in to different personalities is laid out very well.  Each episode gives a new small piece of information as to what happened, but it never gives away the full truth until the right moment.  The drama does really well at showing how complicated a memory can be and gives the audience a good perspective.

The chemistry between Cha Do Hyeon and Oh Ri Jin is also tangible.  They play off of each other so well.  She has distinct relationships with Cha Do Hyeon and Shin Se Ki, but she is able to do this because in the end she sees them as one person.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Cha Do Hyeon’s most lively personality, Yo Na, who happens to be a 17 year old high school girl.  This personality provided for some of the best comedic moments.  Ji Sung didn’t hold back in his portrayal of her, and boy does it show!  Yo Na was an audience favorite for good reason.

And not to forget two of his other memorable personalities, Yo Sub and Perry Park.  Yo Seub was the 17 year old boy who struggled with depression and suicide.  This personality had such a subtle depth to it.  Also, to continue to liven things up is Perry Park.  This personality likes to have a good time and has a particular fondness for boats and making bombs.  Things were always exciting when Perry Park was around!

I was completely invested in this drama.  I couldn’t wait to see what Cha Do Hyeon’s personalities would do and how he would clean up after them.  I was intrigued by his missing memory and loved watching it unfold.  And his relationship with Oh Ri Jin was hilarious, yet absolutely tender and romantic.  I shed some serious tears over this drama.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to give it a chance!

    I finally picked up this drama (I’ve gone up to ep. 16) and it’s been great so far. Loved Shin Se Gi!! I slowed down with watching it because I don’t want it to end. You’re right, I definitely cried in some parts. It definitely deserved the top rating.

      I fell hard for this drama! It’s only the second drama I started watching again immediately after I had finished it. I had heard all of the positive reviews for it, but I never anticipated just how much I would love it! Just the right combination of everything🙂
