Hwang Jung-eum romances Ji Sung(s) in Kill Me, Heal Me

With only a couple days till the show premieres, MBC has released new posters for Kill Me, Heal Me, its “healing romance” featuring Ji Sung (and his seven personalities) falling in love with Hwang Jung-eum, a psychiatric resident. I always find these doctor-patient romances uncomfortable, but if we’re looking for a silver lining, I do at least appreciate that the tagline features the heroine this time promising the hero, “I’ll protect you.”

The tone is fairly light in the teaser below, though there’s a thread of pathos to give it that healing-drama feel. At one point, Kim Seul-gi (in a cameo) says, “That feeling like I’m alone in the world — feeling like there are many different me’s inside me…” We don’t hear the end of that thought, but it sounds meant to be an echo of our hero’s feelings.

This is a drama I’m mostly interested in for the leads, since it wasn’t long ago that we saw Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum being intense and tortured in the melodrama Secret. True, Kill Me, Heal Me will be going for an entirely different tone, with no wrongful deaths, payback schemes, or vengeful stalking at its heart — at least I hope. But we do know the leads have chemistry and are capable of pulling off both the whoa-that’s-sizzling angle to their romance, as well as the well-that’s-twisted side. Plus I’m certainly looking forward to seeing how Ji Sung tackles this role, since he always delivers. Now, if only the plot holds up…

Park Seo-joon, Kim Yuri, and Oh Min-seok also round out the main cast. Kill Me, Heal Me premieres this Wednesday on MBC.

Was so not gonna what it when Seungi was cast... I like what we know of his character, he seems a sweetie but...his 'acting' is just not my cup of tea. The drama has to be extra ordinary for me to have to watch him. Much prefer Ji Sung.

me too, for acting i prefer jisung, i only watch seunggi drama if i really interested with the story, i'm not too sure about this drama mostly because i doubt the writer could really write 7 personality, but the teaser with the addition of better actor make me wanna check it

You should check it out. I was actually thankful LSG didn't take this drama, he's a great actor and all that, but I don't think he can pull it off as great as Ji Sung did. Ji Sung really did a great job and the first few episodes weren't as serious as I thought it would have been, it was more of a rom-com instead. It really is a joy to see Ji Sung with so many characteristics and each time, he doesn't fail to change his gaze.

Ji sung is killing this role. He's so good I can't imagine someone else can do this. Blessing that Seung Gi and Hyun Bin turned this down. as much as I love LSG I don't think he can pull this off. He's not ready for this kind yet. ji Sung delivers that's for sure. I'm on episode 8 now and this is getting better and better!

We have his movie, also he needs a break from acting and we need an album!!

is it like, set in the early 1990ies? why is Seo Joon in that jean jacket and ...that thing...that strangles his lower part...uh.

somehow I wish someone would give Hwang Jung-Eum a lead that is at least normal... she always has to deal with men qho have a million issues. either allergies, violence, now 7 personalities. hope that none of them are agressive. Poor girl.

I love Park Seo Joon, his hair, not so much. Oh Beanies, let's hope an upcoming hairdo would happen later in the drama. Then we would feel at ease with his wrinkly smile.

His smile will override the hair for me but I'm with you - please, a new 'do would be welcome.

She did have a normal lead, a VERY fine one at that, have you watched Incarnation of Money? I believe in that drama SHE was the abnormal one lol!

One another note, I never watched anything with JS but this one could be a good start, only problem would be to know which one of the seven personalities is his real one?

But seriousely, the drama is worth watching for Kang Ji Hwan's performance alone, not to mention it is from the team behind History of salaryman which is a great off beat drama

well according to the previews/articles, the chaebol one is the real one haha. Cha Do Hyun I think. Guyliner version is the domineering one of his other personalities :) so I think it won't be that confusing... I hope.

God no! I hope the rockstar version is not the real him, that would be too over the top for me!
So question remains which kind of cheobol would that be? the typical worn to death cold-hearted-with-a-heart-of-gold (yawn) or the quirky one à la... well, I can't think of any quirky cheobol lead!
maybe I need to watch more dramas that involve cheobols LOL!

Quirky a la Shin Sung Rok's character in Trot Lovers! I wouldn't suggest watching the whole thing necessarily (the last few episodes took a nose-dive, I thought) but I loved how bizarrely clueless he was as the entertainment company CEO.

lolol I thought the lead in Incarnation of Money was pretty wacky too. I mean, the whole show was! But I agree he was very fine.

It looks promising. Definitely checking this one out. This might actually have more rating advantage than JHM because it starts out earlier especially if the plot will turn out good too. The preview is in this one is more intriguing compared to JHM.

Secret was probably the only Makjang that tempted in the past 5 years or so, got curious cause of all the hype, it took me at least 3 episodes but boy did it suck me in, now that was a crack addiction inducing drama. For that reason I will give this a go, I definitely wouldn't have touched this with a barge pole if the leads had been otherwise. The other plus is I love the rest of the cast as well. Bring in on and please please don't disappoint.

Looks good.
Part of JS's charm is that he plays characters that are off kilter - sligtly nuts - there is a **WARNING ** Go back! flag, but you can't stay away. It'll be interesting to see him play a fully nuts character. I guess we have to look for the sane lining in his cloud of crazy to love him.

Thank you for saying this; I don't feel so alone anymore. The psychiatrist/patient dynamic is one of the most intense, so it is especially unethical for a psychiatrist to have a relationship with their patient.

I hope that is just a misleading teaser.

I really like this cast :) So hopefully the writing and execution will make up for reservations I have about the overall plot. I'll be optimistic.

I had just happened to watch a lot of melodramas (which is weird, because I rarely get into them) around the time Secret came out so I wasn't in the mood for watching it. Now I'm stoked that I'll get to see the leads in a rom-com because I love them both in comedy and I could tell from what little I saw of Secret that they have good chemistry.

LOL the "Ji Sung(s)" in the title killed me.

Jisung looks so rough and tired in these stills. If I'm going to watch this, I feel like I'd be so lost. I would have to jog down every one of his characters.

I think his characters will be so disparate that viewers won't have a problem, and I'm guessing that they will focus on a few or else the whole drama could go heywire. But no wonder the guy looks tired in these pics (although honestly, that's a matter of opinion,) didn't they just start filming a week ago?

Ji Sung is a great actor.. Saw him in person in MAMA2011 award in singapore and he was just standing right beside me and he was very handsome in person. He was very friendly with song seung heon I think they are real friends. But he was really different in person much more handsome and he always smile :D lee bo young is one lucky girl and congrats to them and can't wait to see their first child

For this drama, God help me! I really cannot stand the wait and it's unhealthy. I am so sure that Han Jimin excites me for Jekyll, but this time, when we talk about the reunion of the fantastic couple Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum in angst-filled Secret... In a totally different tone (romantic comedy)... How can I stand another day waiting!!! Ji Sung in a truly tripolar state is a different source of thrill, and cannot be ignored! It just triples my excitement!
