On October 12, JTBC unveiled the first official poster of “Reborn Rich.” The first official poster. The poster features a group photo of the chaebol family Sunyang Group. One person stands out in the photo, Song Joong Ki has a different background color and the text beside him reads, “reborn as the bloodline of the family that killed me.”
“Reborn Rich” is based on the hit web novel of the same name and tells the story of a man [Song Joong Ki] who was killed after being framed for embezzlement by a chaebol family, a family he’s served for over 10 years. He gets reborn as the youngest son of the chaebol family [Sunyang Group] and plans revenge by gradually taking over their empire.
The drama is written by Kim Tae Hee of “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and “A Beautiful Mind,” and it will be directed by Jung Dae Yoon of “She Was Pretty” and “W.”
Song Joong Ki plays double characters in the drama and goes back and forth between Yoon Hyun Woo, a loyal secretary of the chaebol family, and Jin Do Jun, the youngest son of the chaebol family, to make up for a thrilling transformation. Yoon Hyun Woo was an all-around solver of the Sunyang family. He was falsely accused and abandoned, he then returns as the Sunyang family’s youngest son, Jin Do Jun, he wages a war against them.
Actor Lee Sung Min, who does not need words to describe him, plays Jin Yang Chul, the head of Sunyang Group, and rules as an emperor, giving off an overwhelming aura. Jin Yang Chul, who rose to number one in the business world after his poor childhood, gets ready for the final match with endless longing for money and relentless coldness.
Shin Hyun Bin, who has an unrivaled acting color, takes on the role of Seo Min Young, an anti-corruption investigation prosecutor from a prestigious legal family. She is a persistent competitor who goes back and forth between the boundaries of evasion of the law and illegality in order to bring justice, and has the nickname of “the Grim Reaper of Sunyang land.” Attention is drawn to the synergy that the three actors will show and how their narratives are intertwined across the times with each other.
In addition to the poster reveal, JTBC said the drama will be broadcasted 3 times a week, each Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
“Reborn Rich” will premiere on November 18 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
My personal thoughts- written by Jass K.
This is one of the dramas I am most excited for. I wonder how many episodes the drama will have if its 3 episodes per week. The drama will have 16 episodes so I definitely find this choice interesting. Don’t get me wrong, the more episodes I get per week, the better.
I am interested in seeing how this unfolds. I generally like revenge dramas and Joong Ki picks entertaining projects so this shall be very interesting.
