TV Review: Kill Me, Heal Me (킬미, 힐미) (Drama/Rom-Com)

Kill Me, Heal Me (킬미, 힐미)
20 episodes
Ji Seong, Hwang Jung-eum

Cha Do Hyun, the son of a Korean conglomerate, secretly hires psychiatric resident Oh Ri Jin to treat his multiple personality disorder. (Netflix Synopsis)

Another Ji Seong drama finished! Kill Me, Heal Me was great fun, not least for Ji Seong's excellent performance playing multiple characters, including a teenage girl obsessed with boys and my favourite, a 'bad-boy' named Shin Se-gi. His different mannerisms and styles of speech for the various personalities came across well, as did the emotion he conveyed throughout. Hwang Jung-eum I am not so fond of; I find her acting style screechy and grating. But that didn't spoil my enjoyment of the series overall. As with so many K-dramas, it managed to seamlessly blend humour with deep emotion and thought-provoking themes as the two main characters fought to uncover and heal their traumatic pasts. It gets 4.5 stars from me.
