There is a heated debate on whether JTBC’s Reborn Rich will have the same ending as the original webnovel series.
This is because the drama left a lot of cliffhangers in the story from the very beginning. Some lines and scenes have made viewers wonder if Song Joong Ki would face the same happy ending in the live-action series.
The original webnovel series ends with Jin Do Joon (played by Song Joong Ki) visiting where Yoon Hyun Woo was killed after successfully getting revenge on the Sunyang Group and Jin Yang Cheol (Lee Sung Min). However, as the live-action series has a bit of a different storyline from the webnovel series, fans are expecting that there could be an original ending to the drama.
At the beginning of the drama, Lee Hae In (Jung Hye Young) cries out to the Sunyang family members, saying, “I will give you three percent of my share of the Sunyang Group, so please tell me the truth behind my son’s death.” And when Jin Young Ki (Yoon Je Moon) collapses and falls into a coma, the group’s eldest son Jin Seong Jun (Kim Nam Hee) visits him and says, “I know what you did. But I don’t want to have the group if that’s what it takes.”
After watching the scenes, viewers speculated, “When Jung Hye Young reappeared in front of the Sunyang family, she said, ‘Please tell me the truth behind my son’s death.’ This means that someone will kill Song Joong Ki or his brother and disguise their deaths as accidents. This may be why Song Joong Ki is living a different life now.”
Another viewer said, “If the story flows the way it does now, the Sunyang family will grow to despise Jin Do Joon, and he will be killed in a car accident. His father would remain silent, his mother would grow grudges against the family members, and Seo Min Young (Shin Hyun Bin) may plot revenge against the group. The story may end without killing him, but the ending wouldn’t be exactly the same as the original.”
Others shared, “Just like Yoon Hyun Woo’s mother failed to avoid her tragic fate, Jin Do Joon may eventually die.”
All eyes are on whether the drama will have a happy ending that delivers satisfying revenge or a tragic ending that leaves us in tears.
The romance between Jin Do Joon and Seo Min Young is another thing to look for, as her role was minor in the original web novel.
