Is 2022 another legendary year for Song Joong Ki like 2016? 

JTBC’s ongoing Friday-Saturday drama “Reborn Rich” is getting a hot response with its fast-paced development and story full of tension.

“Reborn Rich”, which broke through double-digit ratings (10.8%) in three episodes, has seen a steady upward curve until episode 8. The ratings slightly dropped to 17% in episode 9 but rose again to 18.3% in episode 10.

Song Joong Ki, who plays the main character, is shaking the Sunyang family and shaking the hearts of viewers. Viewers are wondering if 2022’s Song Joong Ki with “Reborn Rich” will surpass his iconic work in 2016, “Descendants of the Sun”.

Among many memorable characters of Song Joong Ki, his “lifetime character” is Yoo Shi Jin from “Descendants of the Sun”. When the drama aired in 2016, it created a “Yoo Shi Jin syndrome”. “Descendants of the Sun” ended with the highest viewer rating of 38.8%, and Song Joong Ki won the first Daesang of his career at the KBS Drama Awards that year.

Since then, Song Joong Ki has consistently met with viewers through one drama every year. In “Arthdal ​​Chronicles”, he played a dual role, and in “Vincenzo”, he played a captivating dark hero. In particular, “Vincenzo” recorded the highest viewership rating of 14%. This year, Song Joong Ki also made a special appearance in “Little Women”, which recorded the highest viewership rating of 11%.

Through “Reborn Rich”, Song Joong Ki is giving viewers tension three times a week from Friday to Sunday. Unlike six years ago, when “Descendants of the Sun” earned 30%, the number of TV ratings has become less important now due to the development of online streaming services. Now, 20% has become a dream viewership ratings.
