The peaceful coexistence between Robin and Seo-jin is threatened, though nothing is quite as confusing as Seo-jin’s sudden… niceness, leaving Hana completely spun around. And they say a leopard can’t change... More »

It’s becoming quite the juggling act to maintain this twin cover story, especially when our baddie seems to be closing in on the truth faster than anyone would like.

Okay, things just got way more interesting. The plot gets a fresh twist, the suspense actually heats up, and everyone starts pushing past our hero’s boundaries whether he likes it or not. Not, as the case may be, but luckily there are people in his life who care more about helping him than being liked.... More »

It’s always baby steps with this show, but it does get better every time, especially now that all our characters have feelings getting mixed up in everything. Our prickly hero even spends a day being nice, and as you can expect, this confuses everyone immensely. The mystery also takes a turn for the better, giving... More »

Yay, I’m happy to report that yesterday’s episode wasn’t a fluke—it may have taken two weeks for Hyde, Jekyll, Me to find its rom-com center, but now that our hero has softened, the romantic development is actually coming along. It’s not that I didn’t have faith that Seo-jin would become likable, but there’s SUCH a... More »

If only every prickly romantic hero had an impish alter ego to force him out of his comfort zone. Now that he’s forced to shack up with the woman he tried to send away, Seo-jin can’t exactly cut himself off from the rest of the world anymore, though not for lack of trying. He reluctantly... More »

This show is pretty ridiculous, but it’s also fun, especially when our hero’s alter ego starts actively messing with his life. Some would call it “fixing” his life, but good luck convincing an uptight control-freak that adding complications is a good thing. But even the bossypants with a stick up his butt has his moments—they... More »

It’s our first full episode with our hero’s alter ego Robin, who turns out to be much more than just a guy that saves people. Maybe I’m the only one who’s surprised to find heart in a relationship between a man and his split-personality, but I find myself more invested now that we’ve met Robin.... More »

With our basic setup in place, the kidnapping mystery takes over and further entangles our characters in a dangerous investigation. But given that a certain damsel in distress is what brings out our hero’s, well, inner hero, a little danger is actually a good thing. And even though they’re just teeny tiny cracks, we’re already...

SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday series Hyde, Jekyll, Me got off to a good start today, with solid character introductions, a mystery, and a touch of whimsy. As expected, it’s the Hyun Bin Show, but he doesn’t disappoint, managing to be funny, grumpy, assy, and swoony all in one episode. I’m pretty happy with this drama’s presentation... More »
