Born Again Ends with Low Ratings and Complete and Utter Narrative Crap as Jang Ki Yong and Lee Soo Hyuk Swan Through the Crazy

Such is the case for Born Again, the recently ended KBS Mon-Tues drama that is best described as a dumpster fire of everything wrong in writing a story. It’s so so SOOOOO bad I want to hear from fans tell me why it’s good because that’s such a fascinating point of view I need to read. I watched it all because it was so bad I couldn’t stop and each episode got worse and I couldn’t stop even more because I was flabbergasted this drama got green lit.
