Gu Seo Jin is the owner of an amusement park and cares a lot about its profit. There is a secret that he hides, namely the fact that he has a split personality and that beside the cold side he shows to his employees, he has a cheerful and caring side as well and it's called Robin. Jang Ha Na is the master and actress at a circus in Gu Seo Jin's amusement park -- a circus that Gu Seo Jin doesn't want to be there. Things become difficult when Gu Seo Jin's other personality seem to be interested in Jang Ha Na.
Hyde, Jekyll, Me is another drama that tests the skill of the leading actor by having him portray two vastly different personalities warring with each other.
Hyeon Bin shows why he's a top leading man, effortlessly switching between Gu Seo Jin and Robin, managing to infuse each personality with enough character so that you forget they're acted by one person (beyond the identical looks). And he also successfully makes you root for both characters, which is a tough feat. The rest of the cast, however, never manages to fully keep up with Hyeon Bin. That's not to say they are terrible, but all have had better projects.
The story is pretty simple, with one key villain whose identity isn't too hard to figure out early on. And while the character becomes more interesting later, it may be a bit too late to retain many people's interest. And the directing reflects that, going from basic to more intense as the show progresses, but again a little too late.
Not the best show out there, but by far not the worst. A good watch during a dry spell but not one to go out of your way to see.
