Maybe I’m in a particularly easygoing mood lately, how else to explain why I’m crazy affectionate towards all the promos for Kill Me Heal Me. It’s got that combination of pretty and interesting without trying too hard. All signs pointed to this drama needing to reach high for it’s wild premise of a leading man with 7 different personalities, yet the promos are anything but extreme. The official dramas posters are out and both versions immediately invoke a warm, sweet weekend drama vibe. The poster on top especially resembles an older Hwang Jung Eum drama Can You Hear My Heart.
I like the drama going this route to upend the intense emotional and psychological nature of the story. Ji Sung plays his male lead with such tortured charisma already in the previews, its an early sigh of relief to see him looking quietly content in the poster. Park Seo Joon plays Hwang Jung Eum’s twin-not-really-a-twin and the poster hints that he’ll be the one left alone as Hwang Jung Eum leans back into Ji Sung while Park Seo Joon looks wistfully in the other direction. The drama also released more stills including the first look at antagonist Oh Min Seok, popular Kim Seul Gi doing a cameo, and Ji Sung getting physically tormented by unknown assailants.
