Lee Soo Hyuk Will Go To Any Lengths To Catch Criminals In New Reincarnation Drama “Born Again”
Described as a “mystery melodrama about reincarnation,” “Born Again” will tell the story of three people and their intertwined fates, which remain interconnected even as they lead new lives after being reincarnated. Jang Ki Yong, Jin Se Yeon, and Lee Soo Hyuk will each be taking on two different roles in the drama.
Lee Soo Hyuk’s first character will be the pure-hearted detective Cha Hyung Bin from the 1980s, while his second will be Cha Hyung Bin’s modern-day reincarnation—the cool-headed prosecutor Kim Soo Hyuk.
Although both characters have devoted their lives to fighting crime, their personalities could not be more different: Cha Hyung Bin is a romantic who has eyes for only one woman, while Kim Soo Hyuk is a cold, ruthless lawyer who doesn’t believe in the kindness of humanity. Convinced that crime is built into a perpetrator’s DNA, Kim Soo Hyuk believes that criminals cannot be rehabilitated and will resort to any means necessary to lock them up in prison for the rest of their lives.
In the newly released stills from the drama, Kim Soo Hyuk has a secretive meeting with a faceless individual in the parking lot of a building. After speaking to someone on the phone, Kim Soo Hyuk furtively exchanges something with a mysterious man in a motorcycle helmet, piquing viewers’ curiosity as to what the unforgiving prosecutor is up to.
“Born Again” premieres on April 20 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available with English subtitles on Viki.
