Well, I actually managed to complete another drama this year so I must have liked it! I can think of plenty to criticize about Kill Me, Heal Me, but ultimately it was a unique experience chock full of enjoyable moments, and I didn’t want those moments to end. Instead of just saying goodbye to our... More »
Just when I thought Kill Me, Heal Me had nothing left to excite me, they throw in an unexpected twist! Well timed, Show (for the record, I’m talking about Episode 16 since I’m writing this pre-Episodes 17-18). Now it feels like anything could happen, and I no longer have any concerns about a lack of... More »

Based on the title alone I think I would have assumed... More »

Over the last year I’ve left so many dramas unfinished that it feels a bit surreal to enjoy one all the way through to its conclusion, and then feel that bittersweet emptiness when the credits finally roll. Perhaps Healer wasn’t perfect, but it was always consistent and hit me in all the right spots. It... More »
I’m a huge Ji Sung fan, so I’m surprised I didn’t watch Kill Me, Heal Me earlier. I think what I love about him is that he always gives layered performances and is able to convincingly switch between moods and tones at the blink of an eye without us even noticing the sudden transitions. I... More »
I’ve been out of town for a few weeks, but I told myself very sternly that when I got back I would make sure to check out all the new dramas. Of course I did the sensible thing and caught up on Healer instead. I’m happy to say I have no regrets about my decision... More »
