Kill Me, Heal Me (2015)

The Sh'Pill:

Is seeking professional help enough to help heal a business heir, with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), or will it kill him just from trying to put his multiple, and very diverse, personalities in check for even a moment? This “meeting of the minds” dramedy gives so much to bite into.

The Pharma 5 Watch Guide!

Best Time To Watch:

This drama teaches many things about life, so I recommend watching it with your family on the weekend. Obviously, put your younger siblings to bed or let them go outside and play for a while.

Prescribed For:

I recommend this to adults and teens. Also, it is a great drama to start if you’ve never watched any Korean drama before. In addition, this is a must-see for anyone who appreciates top-notch acting.

Side Effects:

Because of the unexpected plot twists, I became engrossed in the drama and lost track of time until the end. I was moved to tears, laughed until I was dizzy, and ultimately fell in love. Either you’ll shed a few tears, or you’ll burst out laughing so hard that your cheeks hurt.

Cast & Chemistry:

This drama’s main lead couple is superb. Both performed so admirably in their roles that you won’t be able to take your gaze away from them. The acting was polished and ‘on point’ and had some great on-screen chemistry!

Addiction Level:

There is something about the male lead, played by Ji Sung, that’ll make you want to watch this drama over and over again. Ji Sung clearly put a lot of effort into all the characters, differentiating one from another in the most brilliant way.

The LONG PILL:

Kill Me, Heal Me tells about a wealthy man with multiple personality disorder. The plot revolves around his quest for emotional recovery after being abused as a child. This drama did an excellent job of presenting a complex subject in the most naturalistic and believable way possible. Insight into how society views those suffering from mental illness was provided by this drama. There were no dull moments because of the rich and compelling character development. Also, the OST has enlivened numerous scenes throughout the drama, instantly improving my mood after listening to it.
Hard Pill to Swallow
The plot is a rollercoaster ride that begins slowly but builds in intensity throughout the whole drama. If you don’t get past the first and second episodes, it wilI be hard to be emotionally invested.
