Hyun Bin and Ji Sung Will Be Facing It Off Next Year, Both Depicting Characters with Multiple Personality Disorder
Hyun Bin will be starring alongside Han Ji Min in upcoming SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “Hyde, Jekyll, I.” This is Hyun Bin’s first small screen project since being released from mandatory military service, four years after his last hit drama “Secret Garden.”
“Hyde, Jekyll, I” is a romantic comedy about a girl named Jang Ha Na (Han Ji Min) who falls in love with Koo Seo Jin (Hyun Bin), a man whose multiple personality disorder splits him into two polar opposite personalities. The Jekyll version of himself is cold and cynical, whereas his Hyde counterpart, named Robin, is extremely warm and kind. While this is not the first time he had to go back and forth between two different personalities (see “Secret Garden”), it still will be no easy feat for Hyun Bin to switch back and forth between two alter egos who act and dress completely differently from each other.
Actor Ji Sung will similarly have his hands full depicting a character with multiple personality disorder in MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Kill Me Heal Me.” Fans are looking forward to Ji Sung’s chemistry with Hwang Jung Eum of “Secret” as they reunite on the small screen.
“Kill Me Heal Me” tells a story about the healing romance between Cha Do Hyun (Ji Sung), a third generation plutocrat suffering from multiple personality disorder, and his psychiatrist Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung Eum). Whereas Hyun Bin’s character has two personalities, Cha Do Hyun has as many as seven different personalities, making things extra complicated for Ji Sung.
The bar is set high for the two top stars, as their dramas will both occupy the Wednesday-Thursday slot.
“Kill Me Heal Me” will air its first episode on January 7, while “Hyde, Jekyll, I” is slated to premiere in mid-January. Which drama are you more excited for?
