Song Joong Ki revealed his true identity in front of Lee Sung Min on “Reborn Rich”.
JTBC’s Friday-Saturday-Sunday drama”Reborn Rich” exceeded 16.5%, continuing to be a sensation. In the fifth and sixth episodes, which aired on Nov 26th and 27th, Sunyang Group and Jin Do Joon (Song Joong Ki) faced a crisis at the end of the century.
Viewers are also enthusiastic. The sixth episode’s rating was 14.9% nationwide and 16.5% in the Seoul metropolitan area, breaking its own record every day. The highest viewer rating per minute was 18.4%, maintaining the top spot in the same time slot.
With the economic crisis swept through the Republic of Korea, Jin Do Joon, who had been preparing for this alone, established a company called “Miracle Investment” with Oh Se Hyun (Park Hyuk Kwon). The first company Miracle chose to take over was Ah Jin Motors, where Yoon Hyun Woo (Song Joong Ki)’s father (Lee Kyu Hoe) was working for.
Miracle started negotiations with Ah Jin Motors on condition that the current workers are kept employed, which seemed to lead to a successful acquisition. However, there were other people who wanted Ah Jin, the second-largest company in the industry. Jin Yang Chul also needed to merge with Ah Jin Motors to protect Sunyang Motors under the pressure of restructuring affiliates. Miracle was then accused of “speculative capital” overnight due to Jin Yang Chul’s interference.
The government tried to push for the merger of Sunyang and Ah Jin under the lead of Daeyoung Motors. Using this, Miracle approached Sunyang Motor Co., which had no money, and offered its 17% stake and employment succession as a condition for them instead of funding the acquisition. As Jin Yang Chul accepted the offer, Jin Do Joon believed that he finally achieved a “miracle” by changing the past.
However, at his old house, he witnessed his mother’s death again. She is concluded to have taken her own life, unlike before when it was due to a heart attack. Behind his mother’s mysterious death were “Sunyang Life Science” and “Neinus.”
Sunyang Life Science is where the liquidation took place in the process of mergers and acquisitions at the government level. And Neinus was a speculative hedge fund of people from Sunyang who bought and sold stocks in line with this very trend.
They bought shares of Sunyang C&T with the profits earned, which meant creating slush funds for illegal succession. In the end, when he realized that his family was sacrificed as minority stockholders due to the inheritance tax by a conglomerate family, he was caught in great anger and began a fight to capture Sunyang.
When Choi Chang Je turned his back on Sunyang E&C and handed over the new Seoul Town business rights to its rival Je Ah E&C, Jin Yang Chul intuitively felt that Miracle Investment was behind it again. He even caught Oh Se Hyun and demanded that Miracle bring to him the real major shareholder. At the time, Mo Hyun Min realized that Jin Do Joon was the real owner of Miracle. Jin Do Joon then revealed himself in front of Jin Yang Chul, introducing himself as a major shareholder of Miracle.
In his previous life, Jin Do Joon was Yoon Hyun Woo, a normal boy from a normal family who suffered from the IMF crisis. He believed that he could change everything if he could reverse his family’s fate at the time.
However, this was a mistake. Jin Do Joon realized that all the pain he suffered in his past life was due to the selfishness of the conglomerate family Sunyang. Now, viewers can’t wait to see what will happen next as Jin Do Joon has revealed himself in front of Jin Yang Chul.
JTBC’s Friday-Saturday-Sunday drama “Reborn Rich” will continue at 10:30 p.m. on December 3rd and 4th.
