Song Joong Ki will be “reborn rich” in the upcoming drama.

JTBC’s Reborn Rich centers around a secretary who got killed after being falsely accused of embezzlement by the family he served for over ten years. The drama begins when he goes back in time and becomes the youngest son of the family. The show comes from Sungkyunkwan Scandal writer Kim Tae Hee, rookie writer Jang Eun Jae and W and She Was Pretty helmer Jung Dae Yoon.

In Reborn Rich, Song Joong Ki plays loyal secretary Yoon Hyun Woo and Jin Do Joon, the youngest son of a chaebol family. Despite being a member of the asset management team, Yoon Hyun Woo’s main job is taking care of numerous scandals that Soonyang family causes. Jin Do Joon is the grandson of Jin Yang Chul (Lee Sung Min), the chairman of Soonyang Group. But the truth is, he’s actually Yoon Hyun Woo who traveled back in time after being tossed aside by the man he served for so long.

Song Joong Ki chose writer Kim Tae Hee, whom he worked with in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and an interesting worldview as the reasons he chose Reborn Rich. “It just doesn’t end with a simple fantasy of traveling back in time, but the detailed emotions of the characters were well-blended into the material. It was really fun,” the actor shared.

About playing two different roles, Song Joong Ki explained, “Their names are different and times they live in are different, so they might seem two different characters, but the insides are the same, so I acted while thinking that they’re just one person.”

“They each have different charms since they live in different environments and live different lives. Yoon Hyun Woo is someone we can often see around us, and the lack he feels from his family leads to his ambition to achieve success. This normality and the point that evokes sympathy is a big attraction,” he added. “(Jin Do Joon) on the other hand, is a member of a chaebol family which we don’t often see. I thought it was refreshing to see how he survives, makes judgments, and chooses in a complex environment that we have never experienced before.”

Meanwhile, Reborn Rich will premiere on the 18th at 10:30 PM KST and also be released on Disney Plus and Netflix.
