JTBC’s upcoming drama “Reborn Rich” is a fantasy drama starring Song Joong Ki as Yoon Hyun Woo, a loyal secretary to a chaebol family. When he dies after being framed for embezzlement by the very family that he had faithfully served, he is reborn as the family’s youngest son Jin Do Joon, and he plots to take over the company out of revenge.

Song Joong Ki is first to give his greetings, introducing viewers to the overall story of “Reborn Rich” as well as the two characters he will be playing. When talking about his first day of filming, he admits that he is always nervous to begin filming. “To be honest, my personality is not the type to get nervous. But since the script for ‘Reborn Rich’ is so interesting, I think there was a sort of pressure for me not to mess things up,” he explains, though he is quick to assure that things will definitely become easier the more he’s on set.
Talking more about the drama, he describes the plot of “Reborn Rich” as being very refreshing. “There are a lot of great works about going back in time, but I feel like this is the first script I’ve read in a long time that had me curious about how the next episode will play out after reading the last scene.”
Finally, he gives a shoutout to actor Lee Sung Min who plays Jin Do Joon’s grandfatherJin Yang Chul, saying that he was very excited to be acting alongside him and that filming was almost like a dream.
Lee Sung Min, for his part, describes the first day of filming to be much harder than he had anticipated but gives a lot of credit to the actors who were with him for making shooting that much easier.
About the drama, he comments, “I know that there are a lot of works that center around chaebols, but our drama obviously will have something that sets it apart from previous ones.” He commends the staff and cast for their hard work and promises viewers a show that will be more than worth it.
Next is Shin Hyun Been, who plays Seo Min Young, a prosecutor at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office’s Anti-Corruption Investigation Department. She hints that her character appears in many different forms that span through different times and ages, a very unique and interesting characteristic of the drama.
