Dramatic synopsis reading from the cast of JTBC’s Reborn Rich
Before giving us an actual look at the drama, JTBC is offering up a dramatized (or is that dramatic) synopsis reading by the main cast: Song Joong-ki, Shin Hyun-bin, and Lee Sung-min.
It’s shot beautifully, full of warm tones and Serious Acting, and makes me think perhaps the drama will be a little more artful than just straight melo… and now all I want to see is that exact thing: an artsy melo makjang high-budget cornucopia of drama.
The teaser opens with our three main characters — each on a beautiful set — reading from the Reborn Rich synopsis. The narration seamlessly transfers among the three actors as they read the following:
This story is about the revenge of a man who was born into a poor family and sacrificed his life to serve a chaebol family.
No, actually, it’s about the youngest son of that chaebol family who swallowed up the business with his greed.
The true colors of the chaebol.
The invisible war of inheritance.
And a man who was reborn as a new person.
Is he controlled by vengeance, or is it just the selfish desires of human nature?
Is it a blessing to start a new life?
Or is it just another nightmare…
Oh boy, you can just squeeze the drama from the air like a sponge, and I’m loving every minute of it. My favorite Song Joong-ki drama has always been Nice Guy, so if this is the 2022 version of hand-wringing and revenge and bitter love, I’m so in.
Directed by PD Jung Dae-yoon (I’m Not a Robot, W-Two Worlds), with scripts by Kim Tae-hee (Designated Survivor: 60 Days, Sungkyunkwan Scandal) and Jang Eun-jae, Reborn Rich premieres on November 18, and will air in a new Friday-Saturday-Sunday sequence.
