POV DISCUSSION: Kill Me Heal Me Episode 7 & 8


I love this drama. Well cast, good story, amazing chemistry and it’s not stingy with the kisses. AHAHAHAHAHA.

Anyway, the latest episodes of Kill Me Heal Me is probably the best so far, and it just keeps getting better. There are lots of clues being dropped in these two episodes, but these same clues make me confuse yet again. But that’s part of the fun 🙂

Every time I watch a KMHM episode, I am reminded at how it was rejected by two initial male actor before Ji Sung decided to pick it up. I am so thankful for this because I can’t imagine anyone else who is able to do this role as good as Ji Sung, and I think everyone would agree. It seems as though Ji Sung and KMHM is match-made in heaven. AHAHAHA. Okay, I’m exaggerating.

As usual, not doing recaps – dramabeans are doing recaps for KMHM so can check the website out. Not much screencaps either, but I have plenty to discuss about 🙂


First of all, let’s talk about Cha Do Hyun and the people around him. His mother seems to know that he has nightmares and she mentioned that Do Hyun must not remember ‘the child’.

And of course – this child is either Ri Jin or Ri On. In my opinion, I think it’s Ri Jin. Why? The bear. The picture of the Bear, and the fact that Se Gi offered Ri Jin a bear. And the personality is named Nana.

Talking about this… could the personality Yo Sub and Yo Na…. be somehow related to Do Hyun-Ri On, or Do Hyun-Ri Jin? I mean… the personality are twins….. and if there really is a twin in is drama….. hmmmm.

Don’t you guys think she dislikes Do Hyun? Is it because he is Shin Hwa Ran’s child? Or because he ’caused’ her son to be in a coma?

vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h06m28s30vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h06m46s210Ri On is like the character who reveals clues to us, bit by bit and make us all confuse. Now, let’s try to put some pieces together.

Ri On’s story title:
Twin-switched up Murder Case
The Child In The Basement

TWIN SWITCH UP MURDER CASE??? I know this is crazy, but what if… Ri Jin is Shin Hwa Ran’s real child? And Do Hyun is just an ordinary guy? And Ri On is the dead Min Seo Yun’s child?

What if Shin Hwa Ran wanted her child to be the successor of the company, but since Ri Jin is a girl, she got Do Hyun from somewhere and made him her son. However, her real child lives in the same house. Is that too imaginative? Hahahha.

I can’t think of a reason why Shin Hwa Ran doesn’t want Do Hyun to remember ‘that child’. But one thing I think I can be sure of, is that ‘that child’ and Min Seo Yun’s child is not the same person. So Ri Jin and Ri On will each be either one.

All three of them are afraid of basement. According to Ri On’s story, “A black shadow appears…oh??” It means that the person is someone he knows, probably he knows well. Even during one of his flashback scene, he put down his hands after realizing who is standing in front of him. I know this is weird, but could it be his secretary? No right?

Oh! And Ri On mentions that he overheard the parents talking, about being adopted and he started researching about the guy in that family who is of a similar age to him. He also mentions that he is aware of why he is afraid of basement, but Ri Jin still doesn’t remember, so he is finding her memories in her stead.

This could mean so many things. What if Ri On is searching for the truth for Ri Jin, since she can’t remember? And how much does Ri On knows?

Okay – enough for the speculating theories. Hahahaha.

vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h03m02s19vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h03m40s141It’s probably the most emotional scene between Do Hyun and Ri Jin so far, and it’s just perfect.

vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h07m39s235vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h07m50s89AND HILARIOUS YO NA THE FANGIRL. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h08m13s54vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h08m17s101vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h08m19s123Every scene with them is just picture perfect. You know what I mean, right? Hahahaha.

vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h08m35s26vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h08m49s160vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h08m51s185vlcsnap-2015-01-31-22h09m04s56I really like how Do Hyun and Ri Jin’s relationship progresses. From being accidentally tangled up together, to slowly becoming friends. It’s not like the usual two characters who “fell in love” after numerous encounters, but you can really feel the ‘heart’ in it.

Do Hyun always kept his emotion in check, not revealing his true self – but he is slowly warming up to Ri Jin, and without realizing he is slowly changing and learning to express himself, instead of bottling up his feelings. Of course, you have to give Ri Jin credit for that because she is persistent, and she says what’s on her mind. Some sort like the kind who you will put down your guard with.


As Do Hyun slowly expresses himself, it’s hard for Ri Jin to differentiate Do Hyun and Se Gi – because as we can see, they are alike at times. And of course, it’s not surprising since they are literally the same person. And most likely in the end, Do Hyun will have all these personalities as a part of him, though it probably won’t ‘come out’ anymore as a different identity.


Do Hyun was probably touched and swept away by Ri Jin at that moment. And when he looked at Ri Jin and said that he is Cha Do Hyun is like telling her, yes I’m Do Hyun and I am the one kissing you right now. It’s like as though telling her indirectly that it is not someone else, but him, himself, who wants to kiss her.

And the fact that he ignored Se Gi’s warning despite remembering it, means that he has already fallen for her – of course I don’t think he knows it himself. He probably thinks he got swept up and was just touched, right? Okay – I don’t know. We have to wait and see.


There is just so many different theories running through my head, and it’s driving me nuts, in a good way.

Ji Sung should totally win an acting award for this, but too bad drama is in early January and since drama awards are at the end of the year. Usually drama which airs later in the year always gets more advantage.

So far, I love how the plot slowly unfolds itself, and the mystery slowly revealed to us, through Ri On’s story. It’s unique in a way, and interesting.

Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum scenes are really awesome, always – and I love every single scene with them. Even though we all know how awesome Ji Sung is in portraying the different characters, we have to give credit to Hwang Jung Eum as well. She’s been great with her facial expressions – and even those scenes where she screams, or make weird funny faces – it just suits the theme of the drama and it’s really nice to see 🙂

I’m like hoping every single day that drama doesn’t mess up in the second half, or all these mystery will turn into something crazy or stupid (*coughs siblings cough*) because it’s just so awesome right now, and I want it to stay that way till the very end.

Okay – that’s all for these two episodes 🙂

  1. I just wanted to say that i wouldn’t be worried about the awards …last year You who came from the stars aired between December 2013 and January 2014 still got so many awards in 2014 ..it’s all about the impression that will remaine after a drama air time.

    Honestly i’ve never watched a drama or a movie with Ji Sung i didn’t have any liking to him .. i was so set up to not watch KMHM i watched it cause i was bored and in episode one after Se Gi appread i was OMG is that the same actor ? and everytime an other alter appears i’m OMG is that the same actor ? How on earth does he do that ? how can the look in his eyes change this much ? How ? How ? 8 episode later i’m so conviced that each alter is a total different person and that they do exist seperatly .. I nagged two of my friends who never watched a K-drama before and they ended up watching it and loving it and beeing amazed at Ji Sung.

    I made some reseach about DID and hatoff to the writer he/she did an amazing job making DH the way he is , the host , is supossed to be that meek fragil depressed selfconsious having such a low selfesteem and one alter or two can control the others one and they have rules and laws between them ( the human mind is a world on itself :O )

    I love this drama , thank you cast , writer and staff for the amazing work …that rooftop scene between YS/RJ/DH was ART ! and RJ is growing more and more on me !

    Do i need to mention YN ? :O

    Thank you for the ” recap” 😀

    1. I’m glad you watched it and get to know Ji Sung ❤ He's really amazing and one of my all-time fav actors since I saw a drama in 2004 🙂 Of course, not all of his drama choices were good, but this is definitely one of the best roles he have taken so far!!!

  2. I say don’t worry about year-end awards. JS-HJE are already in that level where they’ll get at least Top Excellence for every dramas they starred in, except if those happened to be so bad at ratings like 4-5% (which probably only Great Seer with JS and never happens for HJE); Now KMHM is no.1 in ratings, highly popular, praised by critics and netizens, also one of MBC’s biggest projects for 2015, with acclaimed writer-PD, joint-venture with China, endured all casting troubles and controversy before they had to pulled some strings (I think) to get JS-HJE so late; then there’s plagiarism issue. With all that factors, I don’t think MBC will just let it go silently and empty-handed. They’ll have big shots for mid-length/special project category, particularly if the ratings can go even higher later.

    For Daesang, though, it’s more difficult for JS since MBC has an anniversary sageuk in 2015 (Hwajung). You know how MBC always gave a Daesang for their anniversary sageuks (Queen Seon Deok, Dong Yi, MoonSun, Horse Doctor, Empress Ki etc). Not to mention MBC often have very successful weekend dramas too for further competition.
