Kill Me, Heal Me keeps the plot advancing at just the right speed. I’m satisfied with the development in each episode, but desperate for the next one. The best thing about episode 12 is the development in Cha Do-Hyun’s character. But the story moves forward in key ways: Chairwoman Seo’s agents follow Shin Se-Gi to the … Read more

Kill Me, Heal Me episode 11 elegantly balances its humor, romance and suspense. It always amazes me that the crew and cast can put together a great show this quickly, given how fast they have to produce footage under Korea’s “live shoot” production system.

So seductive. I still have a million reservations about Kill Me, Heal Me‘s patient-psychiatrist relationship.

Or as a therapist? … Read more

Kill Me, Heal Me Episode 7: Boundaries


Kill Me, Heal Me delivers great story-telling in episode 7. I could also probably use some psychotherapy for having liked it so much. Even before episode 8 makes it into subtitles, I have to write something about how this show is flirting with unethical medicine. Oh Ri-Jin is training to be a psychiatrist. She’s still … Read more
