“Reborn Rich” actor Kim Young Jae reveals a story about Song Joong Ki’s wife, “Katy came to the set but I thought she was a staff member”

Katy Louise Saunders reportedly accompanied her husband Song Joong Ki to the set of “Reborn Rich” even before their marriage.

The June 21st broadcast of MBC’s entertainment program “Radio Star” featured Choi Jin Hyuk, Kim Young Jae, Bae Yoo Ram, and Shin Hyun Soo. Kim Young Hae played Jin Yoon Ki, the father of Jin Do Joon (Song Joong Ki) in JTBC’s 2022 drama “Reborn Rich”.


That day, Kim Young Jae revealed a secret story about “Reborn Rich”. He said, “Even if people don’t know my name, they call me ‘Joong Ki’s Father’. I went on a trip after finishing the drama, and the owner of the accommodation recognized me and treated me well.”

He continued, “When I received the casting offer to play Song Joong Ki’s father, I wondered if I could do well since our difference is only 10 years”, adding “However, my wife learned about prenatal education in Song Joong Ki’s drama ‘Nice Guy’. And my son was born. Thinking of my son, I decided to star in the drama as Joong Ki’s father”.

Kim Young Jae then drew attention when he shared, “Song Joong Ki’s romantic relationship rumor broke out the day ‘Reborn Rich’ cast gathered for a meal. Therefore, I was able to hear some behind stories about his relationship. His wife actually came to the filming site before the dating rumor arose. Seeing Katy on the set, I could never imagine that it was his wife”, adding “I thought she was just a staff member. She naturally came and left.”

Upon hearing Kim Young Jae’s story, netizens said they felt touched by the heartwarming story of Katy accompanying Song Joong Ki to the filming set even before the news of their romantic relationship and marriage was reported. 

Earlier in January, Song Joong Ki announced his marriage with former British actress Katy Louise Saunders and her pregnancy. On the 14th, he announced the birth of his son in Rome, Italy. At that time, the actor posted on his official fancafe, saying “Today, I’m greeting you because I wanted to deliver a dream-like news. I finally welcomed our baby to life in Rome, the hometown of my wife. I’m grateful that both the baby and the mother are healthy.”
