Reincarnation melodrama Born Again holds first script read
Less than a month after the finish of Gantaek: War Between Women, Jin Se-yeon (Item) was photographed at the first script read for her next drama, Born Again, along with her co-leads Jang Ki-yong (Search Query: WWW) and Lee Soo-hyuk (The Man Living in Our House). Born Again tells the story of three reincarnated souls that have been intertwined together by fate.
In the 1980s storyline, Jin Se-yeon plays the owner of a used bookstore who treats her customers warmly, like old friends. Unfortunately, she has congenital cardiomyopathy and could die at any moment. In the present-day storyline, Jin Se-yeon plays an archaeologist who uncovers the skeletal remains of the nameless, and restores their stories to them.
Jang Ki-yong plays the dual role of a lone wolf who defies his evil father in the 1980s, and an elite medical student in the present. Lee Soo-hyuk plays a pure-hearted detective in the 1980s, and a prosecutor who believes in a “criminal gene” in the present. The three become involved in a passionate love triangle that endures beyond death and time.
The head of KBS Drama, Moon Bo-hyun said the following to start off the script read: “After a four-month break from airing Monday-Tuesday dramas, we are ready to energetically begin this project. Because so many talented actors have been gathered for the show, I have high hopes. I hope that everyone can build good memories around this project.”
The supporting actors were also present at the script read. Kim Jung-nan (Crash Landing on You) plays a provocative, dangerous woman with strong charisma. Choi Kwang-il (Forest) adds a weightiness to the drama with his serious presence. Jung In-gyeom (Doctor Prisoner) plays the face of absolute evil. Jang Won-young (Rescue Me 2) plays a shameless, crafty character who provides comic relief.
Upcoming KBS Monday-Tuesday mystery melodrama Born Again, directed by Jin Hyung-wook (What’s Wrong Mr. Poong-sang) and written by Jung Soo-mi, will begin airing in April.
