Alrighty then. If Hyde, Jekyll, Me didn’t manage to impress in the first two episodes with a weak story launch and uninspired directing, it appears the drama is headed down only upside left to milk which is Hyun Bin in all his leading man glory. The first two episodes already showed us his post-army abs, sent him leaping over the roof, and doing some seriously romantic but implausible unless he’s a mermaid underwater snuggling of leading lady Han Ji Min. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the fan service bits in the first two episodes since that was frankly the only interesting bits so far.
I’m also starting to get the feeling the iants all the comparisons to Secret Garden beyond just Binnie playing a cold chaebol suffering from a mental affliction. Why else would the drama collaborate with Baek Ji Young for the just released second OST called “Because of You”, when any mention of Baek Ji Young and Hyun Bin immediately calls to mind the insanely popular OST single “That Woman” from SG. I overdosed on the track because I played it too much initially but it really is a classic. Too bad this new song is a pale imitation but does have Baek Ji Young’s gorgeous vocals at least. I’m also soaking up the OST picture above which is that straight from the cover of swoony historical romance novels.
