First look at 1980s Jang Ki-yong in KBS melodrama Born Again

 

New stills have been released for KBS’s upcoming mystery melodrama Born Again, featuring one of its leads, Jang Ki-yong (Search Query: WWW).

The drama is about three people who continue to be drawn together by fate–even when reincarnated in new lives. Starring alongside Jang Ki-yong are Jin Se-yeon (Queen: Love and War, Item) and Lee Soo-hyuk (The Man Living in our House)

Within this story, Jang Ki-yong plays the character of Gong Ji-chul in the 1980s and Jeon Jong-beom in the present day. The newly released photos are from the ’80s, so we’re getting a look at his past reincarnation. There’s a scar under his left eye and he looks like he’s seen better days. But his appearance aligns with his “lone wolf” character who struggles to live a life that is independent from his evil father.

I’m not sure how I feel about this plot, but I am super glad to see Lee Soo-hyuk back in a drama. Although, it’s a shame there aren’t any stills of him yet, we did at least get to see Jang Ki-yong in all his retro glory. Hopefully we’ll get to see photos of the rest of the cast soon!

Directed by PD Jin Hyung-wook and written by Jung Soo-mi, Born Again is currently set to premiere in April and will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS.

I still don't feel good with "reincarnation" and "living in the 80's", but I have no other choice but to give it a try because of JKY. Even those hairs suit him.

I get it not many people like him this way, but I STILL do. Heck even that hair doesn't do any damage to his beautiful face.

JKY looks like SJK in Werewolf boy. And JKY is supposed to play a "lone wolf". Lol. I'm not sure about the story but I'll probably watch this for him anyway.

I'd give credit to JKY for choosing different roles.. i mean it's easy for an actor to fall into a certain character stereotype like the "perfect boyfriend" or the "rich successful CEO". Kill it fell under the radar but I watched it and fell in love with it. His character in Come and Hug Me was somehow different too. This one I can't gauge yet. Hoping this will deliver the story it wants to.

"When asked if being able to show a different appearance was an important factor in deciding his next project, he responded, “Anyone can play someone tall and good-looking. Rather than that, I want to discover myself while acting in a world I haven’t experienced.”

Good on him! Pretty boys are a dime a dozen. He has a distinct face too.

The description screams 'Chicago typewriter' to me (which I quite enjoyed albeit its draggy plot on the later eps). But hey i'm all in for the retro 80s settings and JangKiYoung!
