It’s basically make or break for Hyde, Jekyll, Me this week. It was probably that turning point for other viewers last week or even the week before during the drama’s premiere episodes but I’ve been waiting (and waiting and waiting) so long for Hyun Bin‘s drama return I’m summoning reserves of patience and optimism to see if things pick up soon. I remember Lie to Me had really underwhelming first four episodes but the drama flipped the switch with me during the third week and I ended up rabidly addicted. The drama still wasn’t very good but at least being hooked made the watch more fun, and that’s really all I can hope for when it comes to HJM. I don’t get the sense either the screenwriter or PD knows what they are doing or at least have been making really poor narrative choices so far. The new drama stills teasing more Ha Na and Robin sweet times is cute and all but I’m more intrigued with Seo Jin getting his hard shell cracked more and more.
Sung Joon is sooooooooo wasted in this drama so far, and all signs point to his presence being the obligatory plot driver rather than developing some personality and story background of his own any time soon. At least he got Discovery of Love under his belt last year, that was a great drama to showcase acting and cast chemistry by the boatloads.
