Song Joong Ki Changes His Family’s Fate After Waking Up In 1987 As Chaebol Heir In “Reborn Rich”
JTBC’s “Reborn Rich” has shared an intriguing sneak peek of its second episode!
“Reborn Rich” is a new 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 in order to exact revenge.
On the first episode of “Reborn Rich,” Yoon Hyun Woo’s years of toiling away at Soonyang and faithfully serving the Jin family nearly came to a thankless end. However, just as he faced certain death, a miraculous opportunity came his way: Yoon Hyun Woo unexpectedly woke up in 1987 as the young Jin Do Joon (played by Kim Kang Hoon).
In newly released stills form the drama’s upcoming second episode, Yoon Hyun Woo begins to alter the fate of the Jin family after he suddenly becomes Jin Yang Chul (Lee Sung Min)’s youngest grandson.
One photo captures the broken porcelain incident repeatedly mentioned in the first episode, with Jin Yang Chul and his young grandson Jin Sung Joon (Moon Sung Hyun) crouching down together in front of shards of shattered white porcelain.
At the same event, Jin Yang Chul turns a cold shoulder to his son Jin Yoon Gi (Kim Young Jae) and his grandsons Jin Do Joon and Jin Hyung Joon (Cha Sung Jae). Jin Yang Chul’s frosty gaze as he greets them reveals the pitifully low status Jin Yoon Gi and his children hold within their family.
However, with Yoon Hyun Woo inhabiting Jin Do Joon’s body, Jin Do Joon soon manages to change his icy grandfather’s mind about him. The next set of photos shows Jin Yang Chul smiling in amusement as he listens to what the bold young child has to say.
In the final photo, Jin Do Joon has already grown up into a college student. With so much time having flown by, it remains to be seen just how much Yoon Hyun Woo has changed the course of fate in the years since he first woke up as Jin Do Joon.
The producers of “Reborn Rich” teased, “Jin Yang Chul, who had been keeping his distance from Jin Yoon Gi and his family based on his own judgment and standards, will bring them back into the fold due to an unexpected incident. Please look forward to seeing what kind of moves Yoon Hyun Woo and Jin Do Joon make as the plot races full speed ahead.”
The second episode of “Reborn Rich” will air on November 19 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
