Tomorrow is the first test for Kill Me Heal Me as it premieres to start off the 2015 K-drama year after a ratings dismal 2014 year for prime time dramas. The toughest competition in Pinocchio heads into the final few episodes which may leave an opening for audiences to migrate over to KMHM for something to pick up after Pinocchio ends. If KMHM bombs on arrival that’ll make it interesting to see if the multiple personality story line just doesn’t hook the domestic audience, which may be worrisome for the next arrival in Hyde, Jekyll, Me.
I’m pumped for KMHM after a slew of great promotional materials from drama stills to previews to posters. The most substantive goodie has arrived in the form of a rollicking 5-minute long preview that confirms for me that male lead Ji Sung is killing it (all pun intended) in his role. When he plays the main personality of Cha Do Hyun and the leader of the other personalities bad boy Shin Se Ki, it’s like he’s playing two male leads in different dramas. I’m also getting the vibe that Hwang Jung Eum will fall for both personalities while trying to treat his dissociative identity disorder (DID).
