Rookie actress Im Ji-yeon to romance Lee Seung-gi in Kill Me Heal Me

Oh, interesting: Next year’s multiple-personality rom-com drama Kill Me Heal Me, which is heading into final negotiations with Lee Seung-gi for the lead role, is now in talks to cast rookie actress Im Ji-yeon opposite him. I would have expected the drama to cast somebody with more name recognition, or for somebody like Im to get a secondary role, but she has reportedly received the offer to play the heroine who’ll romance Lee Seung-gi.

Not that I doubt that a new actress could do a good job, as I’ve been hearing quite a bit about Im Ji-yeon this year despite her newness on the scene, thanks to the intense romantic melodrama Obsessed, which she acted in alongside Song Seung-heon and Jo Yeo-jung. I haven’t seen her acting yet, but when a debut feature role earns you multiple awards and the lion’s share of attention for a movie with bigger stars (she’s picked up wins at the Buil Film Awards, the Film Critics Association Award, and the recent Grand Bell Awards), you tend to take note of the name.

The hero’s role is a third-generation chaebol who suffers from multiple personality disorder (he has seven personalities), and the drama tells the love story between him and his secret personal doctor, who is a first-year psychiatry resident with bipolar disorder. Gack, how many things about that make you cringe? Is everybody in this show going to have psychiatric conditions? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, since that is the trend these days, but you would think a hero sporting seven personalities would be enough drama for a drama.

In any case, the heroine’s character is quite the smart cookie, having earned a perfect score on the college entrance exam, and has an easygoing personality (and tremendous appetite) to contrast against her pure, sweet looks. Her name is Oh Ri-jin, and she’ll have a fraternal twin brother (the offer’s out to Park Seo-joon of Witch’s Romance) whose name is Oh Ri-on — or, if you say it quickly, Orion. I can’t decide if I find that overly punny or cute, although really, I’ve rarely met a bad pun I didn’t eventually like.

Kill Me Heal Me is described as a healing drama and a romantic comedy, and is written by Jin Soo-wan of The Moon That Embraces the Sun and Capital Scandal, and directed by PD Kim Jin-man of Golden Time. It will follow Mr. Back and premieres in January.

After digesting this news, I'm happy they are giving the spotlight to a newbie actress who swept awards with her movie and graduated from the best Art school in SK.

LSG, LJY, show us what a great pairing you'll be, I trust you.

No HATE people, at least she ain't an idol landing roles with her popularity, this drama seems like a train-wreck, and my expectations are low, but anything for puppy.

So fighting!!

Yeah! She has disorder. So we have a lead with 7 personna, his love line has 2 and her twin brother can be considered as 2 since he's charming and cute but weird genius.
11 in 3 *clapping hands* the drama has a budget of 15 million dollar, they are stuffing and shrinking their cast with many personna, like an all kill? So one personna will fall for 3 personna od SG's charact and a half and her other personna will fall for SG's other 3 and a half? This makes the two halfs together the dominent personna of SG's charact and she's in love with him. Problem solved.
Has anyone seen Moon/sun? How is the writer? Many said that drama was overratted!

Im getting headache trying to digest the plot .

My last comment is my pure imagination. Sorry I gave you headache.
I said 2 vs 7 so one of her personna will fall for 3.5 of his personnas. The other one will fall for the 3.5 of his. In the end, the two halfs 0.5+0.5=1 his dominet personna is the one she really fell for.
I think she'll try to heal him but discover her desease in the process making both of them healing each other.
And sorry I love mathematics.

A national and syndromed drama of more than 42% in rating can't be the so-called overrated. Some people don't like it simply b/c of 2 things: 1.they are not sageuk fan. 2. Ask their antis why.

Btw, it's a sageuk and it was written based in a novel. You just can't compare it with this modern medical rom-com even though they have the same writer.

0

Oh dear, you sure make this sounds more complicated like math. ^^' Or maybe you want to make it more simple so you can count it. But let's make thing clear that Bipolar is different with D.I.D (multiple personality). While DID is having more than one personalities (in this drama case you can imagine it like there're 7 people in one body and mind), Bipolar is more like you have a change of mood but it still have 1 persona. Even though at first people may think that DID patient is just have Bipolar, or maybe suspect Bipolar as DID, both are different and we cant count it this way.

But agree with you that maybe with female lead have this disorder, it's not only the male lead that being healed but they heal each other, that what we call healig romance. And let's think this in another point, isn't it good thing the famale lead also have some deep and problem in her character.. becuase for me, I don't want to see mare kind famele lead who made him fall in love by just being there patting his head (though I'd love to see lovey dopey scene when her patting SeungGi head, but not just that :P)

It'll be all good if the production company didn't claim that they had a lot of top stars vying for the characters. I've been reading articles, hearing rumours that they're going to find Hallyu stars since the drama is bankrolled by the Chinese investors. Everyone was anticipating the female lead to be somebody but the news came out and it was... anti-climatic to say the least. Just not much to buzz about.

This was considered as a Big project.

Lets see if she will give me a strong impression with her act :D im looking forward for their awesome chemistry soon

Lee Seung gi's popularity in China is really inflated by international fans. He is popular among Chinese Korean drama viewers, but among mainstream he is not. And frankly there are so many Korean actors who are popular among that niche. To say, he's big in China is a big overstatement. Right now, the it boy of the moment, LMH and KSH excluded, is Lee Jong-suk.

LoooL.
First, they never offered the role to any of who you sited. KSH was thrown once the drama was anounced by his FANS because the writer is the one of Moon/sun.
Like one messygirl said, SG was offered the role before but quietely declined. The production crew told the Ch. Sponsors who they have in mind and they said they have the same person in mind. They insisted on SG which refute your theory.
2 months or I don't remember, there was an article about star writer making their comeback, SG's name was thrown in the article which proves he was the one they wanted from beggining. Hyun Bin was supposedly offered and his agency put an article on him refusing it. The production crew posted a statement saying they nevver offered him the role ... Blabla it's a lot of drama.

Well LJS is. Just because your Chinese friend, one in 1.3 billion, doesn't know who he is, that does not mean he isn't getting known among Chinese viewers and netizens. His name for the past two weeks has been the most searched Korean actor name on all Chinese web portals, again LMH and KSH excluded because these two have consistenly appeared on the search rank a lot . And that says a lot especially when LJS is not just competing with other Korean stars, but with Liu Shishi and Eddie Peng who actually have a popular TV show airing on Hunan TV right now.

LSG's popularity in China is inflated, but LJS isn't all that popular too. KSH and LMH are still top. The two of them are still sufficiently popular, but the fact is that the average Chinese won't know about them at all. So LJS really is not the it-boy among mainstream Chinese viewers, that is. (Then again, I'm not too sure whether they are trying to appeal to the whole of the 1.3b population or just the fangirls.) Anyway, most Korean male celebrities who are popular in their home country are at roughly the same level. Believe it or not, Joo Sang-wook is also quite popular, and Choi Jin-hyuk too.

And yes, LSS and EP have a popular show on Hunan, but it's not on the level of Scarlet Heart nor the other ridiculously popular period drama. I wouldn't expect the two of them to be on the search rankings, unless there's news of LSS's marriage.

@paroles I don't think a show has to be on national drama level to be considered really tough competition o_O Just because DMY is not on BBJX's level doesn't mean that it's not impressive that LJS/his drama is doing alright against it

LMH and KSH are above everyone else and then the other people are obviously below them. LJS though? lol He is not that popular though, not enough to be singled out anyway. He's on the same level as LSG at or around. YAAS was more popular than DS in fact.

Pinocchio is doing well in China. LJS is gaining attention as a result. Not saying this because I'm his fan, because I'm not. Just stating what I see on the other side. And it seems there's this misconception that is needed to be clarified.

I'm basing my observation on this data, a Shanghai based analystic that does a good job aggregating all entertainment daily search results from all China's search portals. And it's reliable.

http://ww3.sinaimg.cn/large/79aba393gw1emqhm60qouj20c80fidhj.jpg

Result from yesterday. LJS at #5, PSH at #9 and Lee Minho who doesn't have any show airing at the moment at #19. Eddie and Shishi at 1 & 2 respectively. And this is not a one of thing. It's been like this, ljs and psh appearing on this list, for the past two weeks.

When YAAS or other Korean shows aired since Stars, not one of them, the show and its stars have been appearing on this seatch rank. At least not that I've seen and I've been following this weibo account for over a year now.

Shocking a drama is airing and he's on the search rankings. You are well informed for a nonfan. I didn't say he wasn't popular, but don't pretend he's on some higher level than the other guys trying to get into China.

0

Well, yes I like to be well informed, so I can make judgment on certain topics with better clarity.

LJS is, whether you like it or not, at this moment the one who is gaining a lot of attention in China. Something of which Lee Seung-gi has yet to receive on that level. And back to my original point, LSG's popularity is nowhere at the level of "no joke" that @MessyGirl was describing.

0

@misaeng

listen, I think people are all overestimating the popularity of their oppas, even the two big ones KSH and LMH tbh, and I've never seen many SG fans actually say he's that popular in China in the first place. He's actually one that just recently did fanmeets there and had his first CF there as well. I don't like or dislike LSJ getting attention in China in the first place. And this is honestly a silly conversation.

misaeng sshi, u start all this mess bcz of mere "no joke" thing lol nice try.

Jongsuk's quite popular in this niche and he's ranked high, though he's definitely not as popular as Soohyun and Minho. Jongsuk gets asked over to attend events with big Chinese celebrities and his fee is close to $1mil for one appearance (but I'm sure the price is going to keep climbing). He's also getting asked to endorse Chinese brands. The brand that Lee Minho and Kim Soohyun were both in contract with this year, he'll start officially endorsing next year. Jongsuk's drama also gets sold for a lot, Pinocchio is making $5.6mil from export rights to China. Doctor Stranger was sold for $3mil.

@Misaeng: This is about lsg and his co-star, and you suddenly jump in just to drag your bias into a irrelevant comparison with lsg. You even drag lmh and ksh in with a two-week search. Are you that fame-hungry for your bias?

Don't be innocent. Sharing the same CF doesn't mean you get the same amount of payment or influence. Your drama selling better doesn't mean your own value is similar or higher. China has showed they have paid too much for some unworthy deals.

Choi Min Sik won Best Actor for the 51st Daejong Film Awards (or Grand Bell Awards, which are very big awards). She won Best New Actress for them (Park Yoo Chun won for Best New Actor). Just a few days ago.

So even if not at his level, she has approval by a very big committee as a promising or rising actress. Unless you believe the same big awards who recognize Choi's excellence are somehow wrong when it comes to all other winners. Being new does not make someone bad, even if it takes a whole lot to reach giants like Choi, which few do.

Foreign hallyu-fans might think drama actors are hotshots, but they are nothing compared to movie actors in the eyes of the public there. This recognition makes her casting in a drama more than sensible.

When people who have not even seen her act are wondering if she got an award for her nudity, it's sexist. Pure and simple. I have not seen her either, so I do not to judge her before I do. I definitely do not try to belittle her using her body, gender or work ethics, which I've seen many do since this was announced, very few actually having any experience with her.

Slow clap. What a whole lot of drivel I've had to read about Im Ji Yeon on here.

People don't watch shows for Seung Gi only!!! Don't blame him for the ratings!!

If the show get poor ratings, it's the scripts fault (and of course, the actors have a little in it sometimes) and if it get high ratings, it means everything is perfect, from acting, writing and directing. Ratings= team work.

This China popularity talk is so childish. Seung-gi isn't half as popular as KSH and LMH but is definitely the next in line over a whole lot of others being mentioned. But really, I wouldn't give a rat's ass. Because this is a kdrama and their popularity in XYZ country doesn't affect the overall drama or who they cast. Says the unknown actress they're currently courting.

Anyway, I haven't seen Obsessed so I'm in no position to judge IJY. I hope she can live up to the task. I'm much much more worried about the script that is sounding more disasterous as info is revealed. The doctor is bipolar?!? You have got to be kidding me!

MoonSun is one of the most overrated drama ever, and I'm honestly very pessimistic about this project. I hope it's good because right now Jekyll and Me sounds so much more appealing just based on the simplicity of its story. I thought I can watch anything for Seung-gi. For the first time, I'm questioning that. Big time.

Don't worry. No one would expect it to be "boring and ridiculous" as moonsun. Why? They are hella different in any terms. And achieving half of that "boring and ridiculous" of moonsun doesn't seem easy these days.

If under double digit rating means "good script and execution", I wish you happy.

No one expect it? Umm, yea, I do. Again, how does being different not mean it will be boring and ridiculous when its written by the same writer?

And why thank you! Because I sure as heck wouldn't furrow an eyebrow over single digit ratings as long as it doesn't continue sapping the life outta me - much like MoonSun did. Either way LSG has never had a single digit rated drama, so hell I'm not worried about those numbers. Besides, ratings are more of a fan/fangirl concern and I am not one. I'd rather have quality anytime of the week.

Here is the fact:
Moonsun: sageuk within a royal background, even not sageuk rom-com, written based on an available novel.
Kmhm: modern rom-com with a medical background and personality disorder as new trend.

No matter what the heck is on your mind, these two will never be the same so-called "boring and ridiculous" as you expect, even if the same writer tries to put some joseon scenes into KMHM.

Now you are not worried about rating, about female co-star, then you should just lay back and enjoy it your own way because good + bad acting is no much difference from bad plot + good acting.

Ratings is more of a fangirl concern? Don't be kidding. TNS and AGB may declare bankruptcy if only fangirls care for it.

"because good plot + bad acting is no much difference from bad plot + good acting" => I mean for your own case only.

I love how you make my own case for me LMBO. You obviously cannot accept that others can have a different opinion. I wouldn't make the effort convincing you anyway because... Why'd I waste my time?

And ah yes, because ABG and TNS caters to international audience and their opinions. Of course! I'm not Korean and neither am I a fangirl so I don't give a hoot for ratings. I do care for quality which MoonSun had none of (Oh, and it had none of good quality acting too!) and which I'm hoping KMHM would have some of. And I highly doubt will...

But keep going. It's amusing me that you're getting heated up. Don't deny it! :P

Thank you. When you said moonsun had none of good acting quality, I know what kind of shitty acting standards you have been holding. No more words to say.

@Mandy - Moon/Sun had fantastic child actors!

It's just unfortunate that neither of the adult leads was able to live up to them - Kim Soo-hyun tried so hard (and at least got the ratings to show for it) but it was hard to watch Han Ga-in, she may as well have been a block of wood (especially after seeing the much more skilled and less than half her age Kim Yoo-jung as her child self)

0

@Pogo - Oh absolutely loved the kids part! Not just the acting but the drama was quite good for about 6 episodes. KYJ and YJG were fantastic!

Then KSH and HGI came in and everything went down the so-bad-boring-horrible path. KSH overacted his pants off and HGI didn't act at all. The contrast drove me nuts but the story was so much worse. I just hope nothing of that sort happens here because this writer is really doubtful right now to me.

@orion:

You are not the only one who know the truth about acting recognition in korean movie industry. I admire CMS, Song kang ho, ha jung woo, lee byung hun etc in terms of acting career. And I know no matter how big you are as drama/ hallyu star in korean or overseas, if you fail to prove your talent in movie field, you keep remaining yourselves as STARS, not actors.

I tried but couldn't get the connection between your 1st and 2nd post. First you said she won that award thanks to her boobs, and CMS also same thanks to his boobs. While I found it so offensive to CMS and his acting career, you kept giving me such a lengthy essay about what you felt RIGHT about her. Was your 1st post just a joke that I mislead ? It is not HER whom I care for.

The first post was a joke, to stress the fact that the original poster claimed prestigious awards are given for someone's boobs. So yes, it was sarcasm. I thought using a top male (= no boobs) actor would make my point clearer, that this recognition she got is not something to be belittled. Apparently it was not as clear (I guess there would be people who would offend great actors in this fandom), so sorry about that.

Of course Choi is an excellent actor who deserves his recognition. And I have not seen his boobs or moobs, so no opinion on those. They are his personal space anyway. :P

I have nothing agaisnt her and I am not LSG fan either, but with LSG as a popular star, perhaps, his fans would want a more "solid" or better-known actress to pair with him, for a success guarantee, esp after he acted with several famous actresses before.

I see your point now. I am sorry, too, cuz it was me who didn't read what lead you to your joke earlier. About his boobs when you first mentioned, I even wondered : what? Did CMS play some 18+ role before? Silly me :)

Well, there was sex in 'Oldboy' and I have actually seen his own bare body more than hers in a few works, ironically. Ahaha.

But yes, I am sure neither he or she are getting recognition for their nekkidness. I guess people will find out when this series airs, if they approve of her acting and awards.

You do realise this only happens when the actress in question has been already seen to be bad in a role, right?

Because contrary to what you claim, the news of the first leading roles of Kim So-eun, Jo Bo-ah, Han Groo, Ha Yeon-soo, Jung So-min, Jung Eun-ji, Nam Ji-hyun, Kim Yoo-jung, Kim So-hyun, Shin So-yool, Kim Ji-won, etc. was mostly met with the reaction that you claim we give only to the boys - "high time she had her first lead role", "been waiting for her to get her breakout", "good that she's getting it instead of an idol, I liked her in ____ project" etc.

I consider myself a feminist, but it puzzles me that some people think "feminism" = defending a woman doing a shoddy job, at all costs.

But the thing is, you almost always never see this level of vitriol when it's an article about an actor with questionable acting skills. Okay, so maybe with the obviously bad ones like Taecyeon and Yunho you see people wanting to sign petitions to get them out of a movie/show, but there's really a difference in tone when you read the comments carefully.

female actress with questionable talent = must have had a sponsor / couch casted!!

male actor with questionable talent = gah but ok he's cute

and if we're talking about this woman in particular, seriously, how many commenters here actually saw the movie? saw her acting? sometimes you just see one comment from someone who saw the thing and the rest are quick to copy their observations... given no benefit of the doubt

I honestly feel confused every time I see you comment about how ~SJWs~ feel the need to save crappy actresses when most of the time they get drowned out by fans quick to claim how they bought/manipulated their way into a role. Sexism doesn't always have to be overt to be considered sexism, you know?

There are only two actresses who got that reaction of "they must have a sponsor!" here when news of their casting was posted. One was Jin Se Yeon because of her habit of keaving dramas in the middle of live shhots to. go and sign fresh dramas (not once but 3 times) and the other was Go Sung Hee. This girl is only the third actress I saw getting this negative reactions. You yourself admitted that people have signed petitions to keep Yunho and Taecyeon out of projects and criticised their acting harshly. And now Ahn Jae Hyun is also being harshly criticized for lacking skills and taking the lead of Blood, no one is forgiving him for being pretty.

What I'm saying is, some people like to make claims because it sounds good (poor new actresses, they all only get hate and sponsor rumors! The newbie actors who are bad, no one says anything about them!) ...when that is contrary to fact. And it's not as if male idols and newbies get off easy either, I saw on a past post people asking who JYP had to bribe to give Taecyeon his role in Wonderful Days, please leave acting etc. A few fangirls will defend but commenters don't tolerate it.

I have seen her in Obsessed and she really held her own, and ever outshining some of her co-stars *cough Song Seung Heon cough* And damn, that girl has a fine body. So envious.

So what if she went naked and did a few 19+ scenes. Sometimes a newbie has to make certain sacrifices in order to land a plum role that more established actresses turned down.

So instead of worrying about a newbie actress who's been sweeping all the movie awards in her field, I am more worried about whether LSG has the acting chops to pull off a chaebal with 7 personalities.

yes, I would say the same thing. They always over praise this LSG and even dare to put down the actress being paired with him. As if this LSG is the best actor in Korea (which I found it's so wrong). What kind of attitude is that? They are so childish. It's the full right of the director and production to decide with actors they want to hire in their production, so accept it and support him without degrade any other actors.

0

lol who are you to shade his fandom, the problem here is the other oppar's fans is the one who keep bringing him down and keep comparing him with their beloved oppar like why tho =_= and honestly, if your bias get criticized , isn't it normal for u to defending him? sighhh

Amusing, yeah, but even I was getting stressed out reading some comments. Since I have no male actor bias (can't we just appreciate them all? LOL), I couldn't help but notice how people seem to read too much into things, seeing 'red' everywhere HAHAHA. I guess that's how carried away people can get when talking about their faves.

My personal opinion is wait and watch the drama and see how the leads perform and judge them based on that. Until that point, all arguments are moot because past performances are no guarantee of future success.

I do like Lee Seung-gi but if this girl's half as good as she ought to be from the awards and buzz she's gotten she'll blow him out of the water. I have to admit I am a little dubious as well out acting Song Seung-heon is like out acting Keanu Reeves either of whom could be replaced with a cardboard cutout and have the same performance.

Im joo eun? Seriously? Just when i thought it cant get any worse. Her acting was bad in obsessed. I am surprised to know she won awards for that.. I guess doing rated scenes can definitely earn you the attention.

Anyways.. i will root for seung gi. I am not a fan of his acting. But i like him though. Acting out 7 characters seems to be a biggest challenge though. And the female lead character is bipolar too? Sigh.. Lets see how this goes.

Oh please, she's doing fine in the movie field. I don't know why some people here were overreacting about her acting. I'd say a newbie actress who won many awards for her big screen debut is much better than hallyu idol actress. Pls give this girl a chance. On the other note, I'm worry about LSG. Could he pulled off 7 personalities? Also to think his slot rival will be the mighty Hyun Bin...

She kind of gives me Shin Sekyung vibes, which is unfortunate. Though I'm glad she's being given projects after doing such a racy movie instead of being avoided. Can't really evaluate her acting but I'm glad the industry isn't trying to bury her.

Seung Gi usually has good tastes in projects. Save for Gu Family Book I think in general anything he's been attached to in recent years has been really enjoyable, and I don't even consider myself a fan of his, so I'm not gonna dismiss it just yet. Plus if Park Seo Joon is in it (I will wholey admit to being a fan of him since I Summon You Gold which I only watched for him and Baek Jinhee *___*) the charisma will be harm to resist.

I haven't actually seen her movie, but I hope she's not as bad as people claim/does better in this drama.

There is no way she's a worse actor than Song Seung Hoon, so she's already got that in her favour.

I can count on my one hand the number of kdramas that have taken on medical themes in one way or another and done it right.... And then you add mental illnesses which are a real social issue ( and might I add Korea seems to have problem- just a personal observation) and turn them into a gimmick...no thank you...even Its okay, its love was iffy on that front despite the great writing and wonderful acting

I just have to say that the unrealistic depiction of mental illnesses in Korean dramas is very frustrating . This drama already sounds like a mess(7 personalities)wtf?. I thought that It's okay,that's love was poorly written and pretentious and it seemed more like a documentary to inform the Korean public on mental disorders rather than a real depiction of a mentally ill patient's psyche. I appreciated the fact that they got good actors(Jo in sung was fantastic as always) but the drama was boring and lacked any substance in my opinion. I want to see a Korean drama that accurately depicts mental illness you know not just the aspects that look interesting on t.v. I think a writer who takes the time and effort to do so will get a lot of recognition for their work much like Misaeng is getting praise for its realistic portrayal of the office life, but I guess a drama about a character who suffers from 7 personality disorders is not the best place to look...
