BORN AGAIN – is anybody else watching this?
Lee Soo Hyuk makes my ovaries explode.😍😘🤩🥰 Gosh I know I shouldn’t get attached to him considering the whole soul switch-a-roo & that he has his hair up ; but I can’t help it. I rewind & rewatch his scenes, i can’t get enough.

JKY playing a murderous psychopath feels too blasΓ© now. He brings nothing new to his interpretation of Cheon Jong Bum.

I am so gone for this drama that I watched the last 3 episodes raw 😆

Just 28 hours to go before I get my fix!!! I know it’s bad, but tedha hai par mera hai! My poison, my rules lol

    Raw? Oh my Rumi. I’m not watching it cos it sounded like my kind of nightmare and also I’d just make too many JKY Cinematic Universe jokes and then drop it at like episode 5 but anyway…

    “I know I shouldn\’t get attached to him considering the whole soul switch-a-roo”

    The writer could be fooling us with the soul switching. I wonder if no switching actually took place. But it could go either way (I mean, Ji-Cheol did dramatically write on the walls of his holding cell about his desire to live as Hyung-Bin, even if only for a little while). We’ll just have to continue watching. πŸ˜‰

      If the writer does try to make it a fake out, then it’d just be a huge plot hole because Soo Hyuk doesn’t grab his head, he grabs his eye area in phantom pain.
      ___ It makes semi sense from Jun Beom’s perspective because 80s cop also saw the gruesome murder scenes – the 21st century reincarnation could be interpreting things differently – If he is 80s cop. But the paintings are in a murderers pov so again the soul switch-a-roo fake out would just be colossal bad writing on top of the already bad writing.

      Tbh I also considered the possibility of a fake out but I’m holding faith due to the dramaland hair rule & mdl order of listing actors 😂

        I know some other Beanies had thoughts about Lee Soo-hyuk’s eye grabbing in the current timeline.

        Re: Jong-beom’s character:

        I believe that the people around him (I refer to them as both the Murderer’s Posse–for the man and woman who followed/admired Ji-cheol’s father when he was actively killing–and crazy family–mostly for his mother) are expecting him to be this psychopathic serial killer. A twisted version of the Next Best Thing. As such, they interpret his actions and even his art in that light.

        In a flashback, for example, a young Jong-beom talks to his mother about his wanting to have been able to see inside the body of his late grandfather. His mother has this look on her face and says that he must have a curiosity about studying bodies (or something like that). But Jong-beom replies that he wanted to see if he could find his grandfather’s soul. His mother then has the look of someone who was not expecting that response. As for the paintings: the woman (who was a student of Ji-cheol’s father and apparently the lawyer who defended Ji-cheol in the ’80s timeline) looks at the painting of the person hanging off the ledge. She guesses that the perspective is from the murderer’s point of view. Almost as if the murderer were looking down at the person: he is above everything and the person hanging off the ledge is insignificant (this is my very poor summary of what she says). Jong-beom then replies something to the effect of: “Is that what you see?” He never confirmed her interpretation. Sorry for rambling. I am summarizing and paraphrasing a lot here, lol.

        With Jong-beom’s character, they might be going with a sociopath or psychopath (I always have a problem with these terms as used in dramas, but will go with this), but he might not be a serial killer. I don’t think he is a killer. There is something off about him, but that could be because he does not behave or think “normally.”

        And it could also very well be because he is the reincarnation of the detective. I like what you wrote above: “the 21st century reincarnation could be interpreting things differently.” This is a possibility. But I can’ t help but feel that we could always be fooled.

        Side note: I never saw ’80’s Ji-choel as a psychopath. I can understand that the public might think that, as all of the murders were pinned on him. But the woman who belonged to Murderer’s Posse also seemed to think of him that way. He was troubled, no doubt, but I saw him as a deeply feeling but also troubled person.

          Yes agreed. The mom was definitely wanting a psychopath. I wouldn’t be surprised if she got the 80s dad sperm because she was a fangirl.

          Thanks for the reminder about the lawyer author. That one is most definitely a fangirl.
