KBS will re-air The Innocent Man starting tomorrow following the recent announcement of Song Joong-ki‘s impending marriage to his Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Hye-kyo. The network will re-air all episodes of the drama through its international broadcasting service, KBS World.

The Innocent Man is a melodrama about Kang Ma-ru, an aspiring medical doctor played by Song Joong-ki.

She commits a murder by accident and Kang Ma-ru turns himself in to the police to protect her, thereby serving a sentence for a crime he has nothing to do with.

Desperate to take revenge on her, he deliberately meets Seo Eun-gi (played by Moon Chae-won), Han Jae-hee’s step-daughter, and use her for his revenge. However, he begins to genuinely care for her and gets himself into a complicated situation when he and Seo Eun-gi suffers from a road accident that causes her to lose her memory.

Me? Just an ordinary lad with an extraordinary (says this something called 'stereotype') habit of watching Korean dramas. It started with action-filled City Hunter and the rest, as they say, is history.
