Han Ji-min courted to romance Hyun Bin(s) in Hyde, Jekyll, Me

I guess the reunion wave is still going strong, because we have another potential costar reunion in the works, this time from film to television: Han Ji-min (Rooftop Prince) is being courted to star alongside Hyun Bin (Secret Garden) in his new SBS split-personality romantic comedy, called Hyde, Jekyll, Me. It’s a 20-episode drama from the PD of 49 Days and Yawang and the writer of Alice in Cheongdam-dong, based on the webtoon Dr. Jekyll Is Mr. Hyde.

The drama stars Hyun Bin as a third-generation chaebol who runs an amusement park called Wonderland. He suffers from a trauma in his childhood that left him with multiple-personality disorder, so there are two totally opposite personalities inside of him — one sweet, kind, and innocent, and the other cold, prickly, and bad. All we know about the heroine so far is that she’ll love both men, and she’ll find herself in a love triangle with his split personalities. I’m still confused as to how that’s supposed to be romantic (it just sounds dysfunctional to me), but then, it’s not like it would be the first time a drama couple blurred the line between romance and dysfunction. Y…ay?

The two actors costarred in the fusion historical film The King’s Wrath (Fatal Encounter) as political rivals — he played King Jeongjo and she was his grandfather Yeongjo’s queen consort, Jeongsun. They actually had great antagonistic chemistry together, so even though it’s a pretty big leap from step-grandmother and enemy to rom-com love interests, I think they’ll make a good romantic pairing.

I don’t know how likely it is that Han Ji-min will sign on; she was courted for a rom-com earlier this year opposite Uhm Tae-woong (his upcoming tvN show Valid Love) but ultimately declined. A project opposite Hyun Bin on SBS is a different story though, so she might be looking at a return to dramaland by early next year.

Hyde, Jekyll, Me will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays beginning in January.

Ha Ji Min is a decent actress but she does not interest me. She is not natural so superficial and so plain in heq looks. That makes her so boring. I prefer Yoon Eun Hye, she is interesting and cute. Hope she would make it with Hyuo Bin in a project....

I love Han Ji Min. Hyun Bin is my favorite actor, and two of them pairing as a couple is amazing. My dream is granted. Hope they will make the drama a successful one. I can't wait and look forward to their great chemistry in this new drama. HJM and HB, fighting!
