The couple’s last drama, “Secret Love,” received wide popularity, hitting a 20 percent viewer share. Drama fans are wondering if the romantic chemistry of two actors will bring another success in the drama scene.

Originally, actor Lee Seung-gi and Lim Ji-yeon were chosen to play the part, but both decided to step down due to difficulties in schedule.

“Kill Me, Heal Me” is to start airing in January after “Mr. Baek.”
