It’s off to the races and what was billed as a thoroughbred of top actors and acclaimed production team does not disappoint from the start. Reborn Rich (The Chaebol’s Youngest Son) premiered this Friday on cable network jTBC with 6.058%, the second highest network premiere of all time behind The World of the Married with 6.260%. It’s the only other jTBC drama to premiere over 6%, and to compared the third highest network premiere went to Sisyphus: The Myth at 5.607% as that drama was billed as an top of the line anniversary production. Even better are the rave reviews, the premiere set the stage for a huge cast of acting talents playing the sprawling, rich, and plotting family at the center of the tale and Song Joong Ki in one episode sells his loyal consigliere character who gets a second chance now from the center of the family. I loved the first episode but know this is a rich tapestry that will take time to slowly savor the unfurling, but the patience will be rewarded also from the amazing acting across the board. Lee Sung Min showing up for mere seconds at the end of the first episode sent shivers down my spine and honestly this is the old school K-drama revenge melo we’ve been waiting a long time for again.
