The first drama and character posters are out for Hyde, Jekyll, Me right in time to start off the 2015 drama year on a positive note. It all looks good but not great, not that I was expecting great or even needing it to check out this drama. Hyun Bin really is enough to lure to me, and having him play two personalities is doubling the pleasure. I like the color scheme in the posters but am a tad underwhelmed with how it continues to look like a standard K-drama rom-com without anything fresh.
One would think a dual personality male lead is unique enough to mess up the joint a little but all I see are chaebol bicker and fall in love with plucky poor girl, and instead of her warming his cold heart, there’s already a nice guy version of him around to win her heart first. It doesn’t help that Hyun Bin’s cold guy personality is basically Kim Joo Won from Secret Garden mashed with So Ji Sub‘s Joo Joong Won in The Master’s Sun. The mashup would be complete if Han Ji Min is the first girl to ever crack his hard shell and the one who holds the key to curing his condition.
