hyde jekyll and i kdramaSummary: Geo Seo Jin, an heir and the CEO of a theme park Wonderland is suffering from a multiple personality disorder. The other personality he possesses is called Robin, a very talented artist who always helps him whenever he’s in a difficult situation that could be triggered by his traumatic past. On the other hand, Jang Hana who works in the Wonderland circus got to know Robin and fell in love with him.

Genre: Romance, Fantasy
Episodes: 20
Stars: Hyun Bin as Goo Seo Jin / Robin
Han Ji Min as Jang Ha Na
Sung Joon as Yoon Tae Joo
Hyeri as Min Woo Jung

Likes: The most anticipated return of Hyun Bin to the small screen made everyone (I’m sure not just me) very excited! Love Hyun Bin! Who doesn’t?

Paired with Han Ji Min sealed it to be a great drama! (Wait, not too quick. Just read the dislikes below.)

No matter what happens, I still love the 2 leads. I think they’re great actors. Hyun Bin was great in portraying both Seo Jin and Robin that sometimes I forget that they’re the same actor. Same goes to Han Ji Min, she’s a melodrama princess.

Who would I choose? Hm, difficult question.

Seo Jin – I love his cold personality. Rich and cold to be precise :). I also prefer his looks (minus the glasses) more than Robin’s. And he get’s to wear suits all the time which is Hyun Bin’s specialty (as per Secret Garden experience).

Robin – I love the way he smiles, it’s contagious! His talent in drawing makes him sexy. His happiness is also contagious (at least before he became very sad). He’s just very likeable!

So who wins? At the end, I was leaning towards Robin. I think the show was made focused on Robin’s character before he disappered making him very special. A tragic love, a tragic ending (I was howling!).

I like the last 2 episodes. I think these were the only times when I got so serious watching it. Taking all the sadness the drama might bring in (so I had Kleenex by my side).

Have to mention how I like Hyeri. She was fun and cute. She’s got potentials, just need to be in a good drama.

Dislikes: Gosh, where do I begin? Simply said, a very bad script! How on earth did Hyun Bin fall for this. Now you have a bad script which was badly executed, how do you call that? A disaster! It was hard to watch, my heart was bleeding. These great actors looked like amateurs in this poor drama. Poor Hyun Bin oppa, I hope you do a followup soon!

So bad that it made the police look very stupid. They just couldn’t catch the psychiatrist. When they were close, they got hypnotized instead. So laughable!

Nothing much about the circus really? Aside from the Gorilla in the beginning. To make that kind of intro, it make viewers believe that there’s much to it. But nothing.

The drama reminds me of 3 great dramas which made this one not up to par…

Kill Me, Heal Me – for the multiple personalities disorder theme.
It’s Okay, That’s Love – for being a radio commentator.
Rooftop Prince – for disappearing in the end and for having Han Ji Min in it.

My Rating: 6.5 stars! (10 as highest)
