The fourth and latest preview for Hyde, Jekyll, Me is the best yet, showcasing in a short thirty seconds just enough backstory and juicy tidbits to whet my appetite. It’s actually arriving next week now that Pinocchio wraps up tomorrow, turning the Wed-Thurs time slot into a battle of the personality disorders. Unlike Kill Me Heal Me and the main personality being the sweet likable one, this drama writes amusement park chaebol president Koo Seo Jin as the cold mean one while his alter ego Robin is all smiles and kindness. He’s also the one not wearing glasses and has less shellacked hair for better differentiation.
Putting aside naming the alternate personality Robin, which immediately makes me want to yell Batman in response, I like that the drama is paving the foundation for how the two personalities coexist. Seo Jin apparently has been keeping Robin from coming out for the last five years, likely from being the cold, repressed, has no life asshole so he doesn’t get too close to anyone to trigger anything. Meeting leading lady Jang Ha Na ends up releasing Robin, much to Seo Jin’s dismay. He even nicknames Ha Na “Bul Gil Ri” for meaning bad luck or bad omen for her presence causing calamities for him.
