The remake of the popular Korean drama Kill Me, Heal Me is titled Seven Versions of Myself 柒个我, and has confirmed rising actors Zhang Yishan (Yu Zui) and Cai Wenjing (So Young) as the leads.
Zhang Yishan stars as Shen Yizhen, the heir to a conglomerate firm who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. He is sent to the US at a young age for psychological treatment, and is recalled back as an adult due to his father’s illness. He meets psychiatrist Bai Xinxin (Cai Wenjing) and her twin brother Bai Xiangrong at the airport, and persuades the former to be his family doctor. Cue romance hijinks between one bewildered woman and seven split personalities.
Despite being only 24 years old, Zhang Yishan is actually a veteran actor who has been active in the entertainment industry since 2003. He made a name for himself as Liu Xing in the insanely popular sitcom Home With Kids 家有儿女, though it was his breakthrough performance in online crime drama Yu Zui 余罪 that cemented his status as one of the best young actors around.
Seven Versions of Myself is produced by Huace Media (Deer and the Cauldron 2014), and directed by Deng Ke (My Amazing Boyfriend).
Yu Zui… still no subs :”(
OMG! I really loved the original! After watching Yu Zui, I believe zhang Yi Shan definitely has the potential to portray such a complex character that requires both dramatic and subtle acting.
Agreed – he seems like the perfect choice for the more eccentric split personalities.
