Jin Se-yeon has been confirmed on February 3 to star in the upcoming KBS drama Born Again opposite Jang Ki-yong and Lee Soo-hyuk.
Born Again is a mystery thriller that revolves around three individuals who are caught in a dangerous love triangle in the year 1986. Jang Ki-yong (Search: WWW) will play a lone wolf serial killer who falls in love with the girlfriend of a highly devoted detective, to be played by Lee Soo-hyuk (Sweet Stranger and Me).
Jin Se-yeon, who is starring in the ongoing series Selection: The War Between Women, will essay the role of a bookstore owner with a heart condition. Despite not knowing how long she has to live, she possesses a warm, gentle heart and inadvertently ends up as the love interest of the two men. She is expected to ramp up the tension and conflicts between the two male leads.
In the year 2020, these three characters are reincarnated as completely different people. The detective is now a prosecutor who believes that people inherit criminal mentality, the serial killer an aloof medical student who manipulates those around him, and the bookstore owner a bioarchaeologist who can restore history by merely touching the skeletons she finds. The fates of these three people, however, lead them to the same twisted path as before.
Previously, Jang Ki-yong and Lee Soo-hyuk were reportedly courted to play the role of the detective and killer, respectively. In confirmation reports, however, their roles were switched. Jang will be taking on the role of a killer for the second time in his career, following last year’s Kill It.
Born Again will be helmed by Jin Hyung-wook, who directed last year’s hit family drama Liver Or Die. It is scheduled to premiere in April.
