Song Ji-hyo to be romanced by Sohn Ho-joon, Kim Min-joon, Gu Ja-sung, and Song Jong-ho in JTBC’s Begin Again
Recently, it was announced that Begin Again had secured its headliner Song Ji-hyo (Lovely Horribly, Running Man). She plays a single working mom with strong survival skills, who has a career as a movie producer, but she hasn’t been in a relationship in 14 years. All of a sudden, four men appear in her life, and she’s confronted with a dilemma she hasn’t had to consider in over a decade: romance.
The first contender will be played by Sohn Ho-joon (The Light in Your Eyes). He’s a charming bad boy who writes best-selling novels for a living, and his stories have even been made into Hollywood movies. However, he likes to keep his identity anonymous.
Song Jong-ho (Arthdal Chronicles) will play an attractive young man who’s had a tough life. The character is an actor whose good looks preceded him, to the point that he was known as the Bae Yong-joon of his major (theater and film). Post-college, his popularity has soared to the point where he’s known as the “Nation’s Guy Friend.”
Playing a character described as “scary, but sexy” will be Kim Min-joon (My Sassy Girl), and he’s the CEO of a financial firm called 9 Capital. However, he started off as a gangster, but now he’s known as the “Robin Hood of Loansharks.”

The last of Song Ji-hyo’s suitors is the “young, but swoon-worthy” one, who will be played by Gu Ja-sung (The Secret Life of My Secretary), and this character works as a physical education teacher. With his ever-present smile, he is an extremely popular teacher, treated almost like a celebrity at school.
As this love pentagon begins to unfold, Song Ji-hyo’s character begins to discover herself again. After having put her work and child first for the last fourteen years, she realizes through her complex new relationships of the need to value herself again.
JTBC’s upcoming drama Begin Again, written by Lee Seung-jin and directed by Kim Do-hyung (Somehow Eighteen), is scheduled to air in 2020.
