Reasons Why Lee Joon Gi’s New Drama “Again My Life” Is So Popular
SBS’s new drama “Again My Life” has been gaining popularity for its intriguing storyline just a week after its launch!
“Again My Life” on SBS is about a young prosecutor who is given a second chance at justice after failing to bring down a powerful person the first time. Lee Joon Gi plays Kim Hee Woo, a man who was wrongfully slain while investigating a corrupt politician but is given a second chance at life.
The drama’s April 8 premiere aired to No. 1 ratings and experienced an immediate increase with its second episode. In addition to receiving high audience ratings, the drama and its star, Lee Joon Gi, were among the top three on Good Data Corporation’s weekly list of buzzworthy dramas and performers.
Despite the fact that the drama has only been on the air for one week, here are three reasons why “Again My Life” is causing such a stir!
Lee Joon Gi is a reliable actor.
To the point where “Again My Life” is said to be of the “Joon Gi genre,” right from the drama’s start, Lee Joon Gi impressively filled up the episode with his captivating acting. Additionally, Lee Joon Gi plays both a prosecutor and his own younger-counterpart from 15 years ago, earning praise from viewers such as, “He’s acting out even his age.”
In just the first two episodes, Lee Joon Gi has demonstrated a wide range of emotions, from Kim Hee Woo’s detached feelings after dying an unfair death to his flawless portrayal of Kim Hee Woo’s cries of relief when he was given one more chance to save his parents. Lee Joon Gi charismatically portrays Kim Hee Woo’s commitment to successfully punish evil in his second life.
The major goal of Kim Hee Woo is to destroy the villain’s inner circle.
The gratification derived from seeing Kim Hee Woo’s plan unfold is one part of “Again My Life” that has viewers fascinated. Kim Hee Woo is able to return to his life from 15 years ago in his second life, but with all of his present experience. Kim Hee Woo boldly embarks on his mission to destroy his adversary’s inner circle now that he possesses the power of knowledge.
Kim Hee Woo travels back in time to resurrect his parents and save the lives of Kim Han Mi (Rainbow’s Kim Jae Kyung) and Kim Kyu Ri (Hong Bi Ra). Through this, Kim Hee Woo begins a new life, meeting people he never met in his previous life, such as Kim Hee Ah (Kim Ji Eun) and Lee Min Soo (Jung Sang Hoon), who will also become fateful companions in assisting him in taking down his enemy Jo Tae Seob (Lee Kyung Young).
A clear theory of good and evil, a fast-paced plot, and fulfilling moments
There is a distinct demarcation of good and wrong in “Again My Life,” which recounts the story of a second life and a passionate prosecutor aiming to punish evil. Political billionaire Jo Tae Seob is caught up in a corrupt vested interest cartel, and Kim Hee Woo is determined to root it out and show him how powerful justice can be.
Kim Hee Woo is slain by Jo Tae Seob’s henchman in the first episode, but he is immediately restored and allowed to resume his life from 15 years earlier. With such a fast pace, viewers were unable to look away for even a second. The plot proceeds at a breakneck pace, leaving no room for discouragement as Kim Hee Woo moves through the stages of his dynamic quest.
