My thoughts –
‘Kill Me Heal Me’ was undoubtedly one of the best dramas of this season. It’s awesome from almost every angle. The drama itself was a complete package of romance, humor, tragedy, excitement & suspense. The plot was unique, well-written & wonderfully executed. The consistency it maintained throughout the last episodes was worth complimenting. Even though the story was a little stretched somewhere at the end, yet the last few episodes were no less exciting than the first ones. That’s what makes the drama worth watching several times.
Character build up was beyond perfect. ‘Ji sung’ was the heart of the drama. To be honest, I was not a big fan of him in the first place, but by the end of the show I swore that I’d never judge a book by its cover ever again. Now I’m in love with Ji Sung oppa. His acting skill is just WOW. Portraying one single character is a challenge itself, but Ji Sung managed to pull off seven different personalities more than perfectly. From the lady killer ‘Shin Se Gi’ to the fangirl ‘Yona’, he was completely into the characters, making audiences to fall in love with his different personalities.
I fell in love with ‘Shin Se Gi’ the moment he confessed his love for Oh Ri Jin in the most extraordinary way ever!!! But when I got to know the hidden secret behind all of his actions, my love for him literally bloomed. So even though I loved every single personalities of Cha Do Hyun, ‘Shin Se Gi‘ was my most favorite of them all. My 2nd fav was ‘Yona’, thanx to her funny personality and activities, the show was much more enjoyable to watch. 🙂 To be honest every single personalities was lovable, and so my heart was literately aching when they were leaving one by one at the end of the show. 😦
If Ji sung was the heart of the drama, Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung-eum) was the soul. She is an extra ordinary actress!! She doesn’t bother looking ugly on the screen, she puts her heart in the characters she play. As a viewer I could feel the warmth, dedication, selflessness Oh Ri Jin had through her brilliant acting. She was the one who opened the closed doors to Cha Do Hyun’s heart. She was the one who healed his heart from the scratch, and I absolutely loved her for that. She was an inspiration for me.
With the warmth & dedication Oh Ri Jin healed Cha Do Hyun’s heart, even when she was suffering terribly, was deeply heart-warming. The love they shared for each other made them stronger and helped them get rid of their painful memories from the past. An example of true love, that’s how their relationship was.
I’d also like to mention how nicely the character of Oh Ri Ohn was handled. He was not just another typical desperate second lead. His character was diverse. One moment he was childish and the other moment he was completely different. Hats off to ‘Park Seo Joon’ for being able to handle the different sides of this character. His acting was just superb.
Final Thoughts – A must watch drama for everyone. Even non k-drama fans will also love this show more or less. A taste of different genres all together in one single drama, you don’t want to miss that now do you? 😛
