A Quick Recap!
Previously in Reborn Rich Ep 16, Do-Joon took over the Soonyang company and became the largest shareholder of the company. However, Chang-Je started an investigation into illegal political campaign funds, making it a lucrative opportunity for Dong-ki. He submitted evidence against Do-Joon, who helped the suspected murderer to escape the country. So, he was on the emergency warrant. But Min-young couldn’t believe the whole situation and later learned it was Do-joon’s plan. After the secretary’s confession, Do-Joon got out of custody, and Dong-ki was arrested. Soon his wife and daughter reported Young-ki for slush fund-related crimes.
Meanwhile, the Soonyang family faced a crisis, and Do-Joon became the company’s next chairman. But he was killed in a horrific car accident. After the truck rammed the car, Do-Joon looked straight into the person’s eyes who saw the accident: Hyun-woo. Two decades later, Hyun-woo survived the bullet shot and decided to go with Min-young as the sole witness. He later played the evidence in court, trapping Sung-Joon, and later, Hyun-min divorced him. He then returned with Se-Hyun in the hope of building a fairer society.
Reborn Rich Season 2: What To Expect?
Who Is Real?
The finale left fans with plenty of questions. Song Joong-ki’s return as Hyun-woo left fans in shock as nobody expected this twist could happen. Now everyone is looking forward to seeing more of Hyun-woo. Well, the twisted plotline hints at endless possibilities. Hyun-woo lived Do-joon’s life and took his revenge. But there’s speculation that perhaps the real Do-Joon is still alive and exchanged his life with Hyun-woo to destroy the company. Further, there’s a chance that the thread is attached to the third person, who’s paving the path for both of them.
Min-young Finds Her Love
In the closing moment, Hyun-woo’s remark reminded Min-young of Do-Joon. She recalled those words as Do-Joon often used them. But it remained unclear how Hyun-woo knew it. Is Hyun-woo the real Do-Joon? There’s a chance that Do-Joon survived the accident and started living as Hyun-woo to take revenge. So the second season may focus on Min-young’s investigation and how she learns the truth behind the personality switch. It may lead to the reunion of the lost lovers.
Jin’s Family May Return
The Jin family did a lot to take over the Soonyang Group. They continued to fuel their greed. Throughout the first season, fans saw them in an endless battle for the group’s rights. So they won’t give up like this and may return to claim the company. Additionally, their biggest opponent is already dead, and they don’t need to fight with anyone. So it may create a perfect plot for Reborn Rich Season 2.
