I’m sad to be writing this since I had high expectations for both dramas and really wanted to like them. Unfortunately though, it just didn’t work out. And, it’s actually unfair of me to group these two dramas together as The Hypnotist (被催眠的催眠师) is far superior to Psychologist (心理师) in terms of directing style, acting, cinematography, and the overall story in general. But, since I watched them both back-to-back yesterday and these were the two dramas I initially planned on recapping, it feels more appropriate for me to make one announcement instead of two.
In short, the verdict is I will not be writing recaps for either drama because they’re not my cup of tea. If you want to read the longer version of how I felt about the first episode of Qiao Zhenyu’s Psychologist and Yang Le’s Hypnotist though, then continue reading below!

Qiao Zhenyu and Tang Yixin’s Psychologist (心理师) will be airing on April 24th with 12 episodes. In a new trailer that was released, we see that Tang Yixin supposedly plays Qiao Zhenyu’s alter-ego within the drama whom he eventually falls in love with. So, our male lead Dr. Xia (Qiao Zhenyu) either has Dissociative Identity Disorder, or all of this is just a part of Miss Ouyang Xin’s (Tang Yixin) big scheme. Interesting. I can’t wait to find out!

More stills have been released for Qiao Zhenyu and Tang Yixin’s Psychologist (心理师), which will be airing on April 24th! Their official weibo account shared these pictures with the caption: “Is it possible for you to fall in love with another one of your ‘personalities’ one day? Doctor Xia (Qiao Zhenyu) and Miss Ouyang Xin (Tang Yixin) will tell you the answer,”
I didn’t know this will be about Dissociative Identity Disorder! But, a quick look back at older news articles reveal that this drama was initilally titled Two-faced Psychologist. So, I have a feeling our male lead will be suffering from this condition. I’ve always found DID to be one of the most fascinating disorders, which was why I took a course on it when I was getting my degree in psychology. But, unfortunately, it’s often poorly portrayed on screen. Hopefully this drama won’t mess it up! Qiao Zhenyu is looking very good in these pictures though, so the fangirl in me is still very much excited lol
