Kill Me, Heal Me Cast: Who’s in it?
Ji Sung (‘Innocent Defendant’, ‘Familiar Wife’, ‘Secret Love’, ‘My PS Partner’, ‘Doctor John’) stars as Cha Do-Hyun, a rich businessman with a kind heart, who helps others whenever he can. However, this is his primary personality as he suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID). He discovers this affliction 11 years back and tries his best to hide it from his friends and family. Cha Joon-young is his actual name and he has six other identities.
Shin Se-gi is a violent young man, a personality that surfaces when Cha Do-Hyun faces any cruel, brutal situation. Although he is aggressive, to date, he has never hurt any woman or child. Se-gi is Do-Hyun’s only identity that remembers everything. His first love is Oh Ri-jin. Perry Park reveals himself in the form of a 40-year-old man with a knack for fishing and building bombs. This counterpart appears when Cha Do-Hyun recalls some of his good moments with his dad. Do-Hyun had promised his father that he would gift him a boat, named Perry Park Boat – and hence the name. He speaks with a Jeolla dialect. Ahn Yo-seob is a smart 17-year-old boy with suicidal tendencies. He is a talented artist. This personality first surfaced when Cha Do-hyun had attempted suicide in high school.
Ahn Yo-na is a bubbly, social, and mischievous idol-loving 17-year-old girl. She appears when Cha Do-hyun goes through emotional or mental stress — when he needs to handle it by himself in secret. She harbors a crush on Oh Ri-on and is Yo-seob’s twin sister. Na-na is a 7-year-old girl who has a teddy, Nana. She defines Do-Hyun’s childhood fears and insecurities. She is also an embodiment of Ri-jin’s younger self. Mr. X is a weird man, later revealed as Na-na’s father.
Hwang Jung-eum stars as Oh Ri-jin, Oh Ri-on’s twin sister. She is a psychiatry resident in her first year and maintains an outwardly perfect image. She may look pretty, sophisticated and kind but she is clumsy and has a quick temper. Ri-jin later becomes Do-Hyun’s secret psychiatrist, and gradually starts falling for him. As the episodes progress, we learn that her real name is Cha Do-hyun.
Park Seo-Joon (‘What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim‘) is Oh Ri-on aka Omega or Oh Hwi, Oh Ri-jin’s elder twin brother. He seems like a simple guy but he writes mystery novels under the pseudonym Omega. He starts investigating the Seungjin Family. He has another name, Oh Hwi, which he employs to flirt with women.
Oh Min-suk is Cha Ki-Joon, ID Entertainment’s president and Do-Hyun’s trusted companion and cousin. Both of them want to be the heir of the family’s company. Kim Yoo-Ri is Han Chae-Yeon, Do-Hyun’s first love, and Ki-Joon’s fiancée. She is a cold, haughty woman.
