It looks like there will be an intense rivalry between Jang Ki-yong (Search Query: WWW) and Lee Soo-hyuk (The Man Living in Our House) for the affections of one lucky lady in the upcoming retro melodrama, Born Again. Currently, both male leads have confirmed, and Jin Se-yeon (Selection: War Between Women, Item) is being courted for the part of the female lead.
In 1980, the three meet for the first time and become intertwined in a fateful relationship of fiery passion and jealousy. They are reincarnated in the present day with different life circumstances, but the fierce competition for the love of one woman begins again.
For his 1980s character, Jang Ki-yong plays a lone wolf who rejects the life of wickedness laid out for him by his evil father. In the present, he plays an elite medical student. Meanwhile, Lee Soo-hyuk plays a detective who guards his pure love as his 1980s character, and a prosecutor who believes criminal behavior is genetic for his present-day character.
It’ll be interesting to see how these characters become involved with each other. For Jang Ki-yong alone, I would have watched this series (because I was especially impressed with Come and Hug Me), but you add Lee Soo-hyuk (and his abs), and I’m already counting down the months until Born Again starts.
Monday-Tuesday drama Born Again, directed by Jin Hyung-wook and written by Jung Soo-mi, will be broadcast on KBS starting this April.
