Song Joong-ki, Lee Sung-min confirmed for time loop drama
Lee Sung-min, Song Joong-ki
JTBC drama Youngest Son of a Chaebol Family has cast Song Joong-ki (Vincenzo) and Lee Sung-min (Money Game) as its main leads. Based on a web novel by the same name, the story is a fantasy drama about a character that somehow returns to the past and begins a new life.
Song Joong-ki’s character is originally the personal secretary of the head honcho of a chaebol family. His job mainly revolves around minimizing “owner risk,” a.k.a. cleaning up the scandals and other messes made by the chaebol family members. Despite his loyalty to the family, he’s framed for something he didn’t do, and is thrown away without an afterthought.
By some miraculous phenomenon, Song Joong-ki returns to the past — but not as himself. He’s now the chaebol family’s youngest son, Jin Do-joon. Having lived through the future, he uses his knowledge strategically to begin taking over the chaebol conglomeration.
The current head of the family and leader of the chaebol conglomeration, Jin Yang-chul, will be played by Lee Sung-min. He’s extremely competitive, and has an almost unmatchable resolve. In his endless pursuit of money and success, he can be cold-hearted and ruthless.
Written by Kim Tae-hee (Designated Survivor: 60 Days) and directed by Jung Dae-yoon (She Was Pretty), Youngest Son of a Chaebol Family will likely air in 2022 on JTBC.
