Song Joong Ki’s formidable acting in “Reborn Rich” proves he’s no longer a “flower boy”

Famous actor Song Joong Ki, whose face often overwhelms his talents, is exuding fatal charms via his spiteful role in “Reborn Rich”. 

Song Joong Ki is garnering huge attention everyday via his appearance in “Reborn Rich”, playing a cunning person who completely masks his dubious intentions. Even so, he has a burning passion, leaving the audience unable to take their eyes off him.

Despite wearing no armor, Song Joong Ki’s character is one with the bravery and determination of a war general. In his previous work, “Vincenzo”, Song Joong Ki played a cold-blooded anti-hero, but this time, his atmosphere is not one that’s supported by evil. 

Based on a novel of the same name, the K-drama “Reborn Rich” follows Yoon Hyun Woo (Song Joong Ki), a secretary under the Sunyang group, a leading conglomerate in Korea. However, he was unfairly killed, reborn in 1987 as Jin Do Joon, the youngest grandson of the Sunyang family, and was set out with revenge in mind.

Yoon Hyun Woo, who always carried out orders from the Sunyang family without asking any question, clenched his teeth to work and was pitied by his colleagues and juniors. All of this, he did because of his father’s job joss and the sorrow of his mother, who died due to union activities.

However, the result of his devotion to Sunyang was disastrous. In particular, he was given the mission to find slush funds by Jin Seong Joon (Kim Nam Hee), the eldest son of the Sunyang family, and was unexpectedly killed by someone in Sunyang. That’s why when he was reborn as Jin Do Joon, our male lead secretly cultivated his own strength and laid out a revenge plan against the Sunyang family.

With clear knowledge of the turbulent political and economic history of South Korea, which he learnt while living as Yoon Hyun Woo, the reborn Jin Do Joon became an investment guru. He looks like a kid on the outside, but his mind and schemes were as cunning as a snake. 

Moreover, things get brutal when he shows his intention to snipe the Sunyang Group, as if he’s a descending grim reaper. In the ending of the 6th episode, which aired on November 28th, he finally reveals the blade he held towards his grandfather, Jin Yang Chul (Lee Sung Min).

At the same time, the solemnity exuded by Song Joong Ki peaked due to the actor’s intense immersion. Even against the highly experienced Lee Sung Min, Song Joong Ki does not fall behind at all. While Song Joong Ki is always praised for his visuals, a handsome face is far from being the most formidable about him. 

Looking back, Song Joong Ki always showed himself with a unique presence, although such skills were often hidden by his appearance. In fact, even during the actor’s early days, his co-stars have also mentioned Song Joong Ki’s incomparable aura, as well as the observation that he matured early.

With a baby face and skinny body, many would underestimate Song Joong Ki, but the truth is, he can quickly overwhelm and outwit any opponent. This also reflects in the actor’s works, most notable in Jin Do Joong, who finally bared his ferocious teeth after disarming the opponent with a soft smile.

Overall, Song Joong Ki’s terrifying power can be felt in both Yoon Hyun Woo, who was dignified and stubborn, and in Jin Do Joon, who made fun of his opponent with elegant speech.

The outstanding acting performances showcased by Song Joong Ki certainly blew a lot of viewers away, and left them wondering how he honed such brilliant skills, just as how they question the identity of Hyun Woo’s killer in “Reborn Rich”. 

Nevertheless, most attention is being focused on what will happen in the future – both in the K-drama “Reborn Rich”, and in what kind of great success Song Joong Ki will attain.
