Reborn Rich movie review

Jin Yang-cheol complex character

As the role model for future Jin Do-joon and Yoon Hyun-woo, Jin Yang-cheol (Lee Sung-min) is the most interesting character in the movie. Jin Yang-cheol is a complicated character, hard to love or hate.

He is a shrewd and cynical businessman who has built Soonyang on cruel and often unethical practices. He has big ambitions to make Soonyang number one and will not hesitate to cut ties with anyone who stands in his way or doesn’t want to obey his orders even if they are members of his family. that. Jin Yang-cheol loves Soonyang more than his family.

With all of Jin Yang-cheol’s bad qualities, we can’t just hate him, especially seeing how much he loves his youngest grandson, Jin Do-joon. As the only descendant of Yang-cheol with a similar mindset and way of doing business, Do-joon has become Jin Yang-cheol’s favorite grandson and a threat to the rest of the Soonyang family.

Review Reborn Rich

Jin Yang-cheol is highly respected by Do-joon even though the two sometimes have conflicts because of business competition, but when watching this movie we will see the warmth of the relationship between grandfather and grandson. lovers.

Fighting doesn’t always use muscles

Yoon Hyun-woo, who was born as Jin Do-joon originally had a desire to avenge his death. Before getting to that point, Do-joon embarks on a mission to pit Soonyang against the rest of his family.

Coming from the future, Do-joon excels in knowledge, especially what is going on in Soonyang’s family as he has all this information during his time as a servant in the family. This makes it easy for Do-joon to make decisions or plan to complete his mission.

Instead of winning Jin Yang-cheol’s heart to get a small portion of Soonyang as an inheritance, Do-joon has ambitions to buy Soonyang as a form of revenge. This leads to a tense and tense battle of wits as Doo-joon traps the rest of the Soonyang family with his insatiable greed and ulterior motives against them.

Through the violent conflicts of succession, we see not only the deterioration of society but also of humanity. Despite enduring greed, suspicion, and betrayal in his quest for revenge, Jin Do-joon remains steadfast in his principle of protecting the interests of those he cares about.

Movie Reborn Rich

At work, Jin Do-joon was always able to get the job done without using illegal methods with extraordinary results. Like the investment rules he enforces, Do-joon deeply understands the personalities of each Soonyang family so it’s not difficult for him to trap and eliminate them in the battle for succession.

Each episode is filled with surprises and leaves us impatient to see the next part of the story. In addition, ‘Rich Son Reincarnated’ does not have a single criminal as every member of Soonyang’s family is a suspect with their own crimes.
