  16. 16 : Wishsom Says:

    The story in this drama is so messed up. What’s so good about a messy story? No, nothing good at all. Audience will give up watching the stupid drama. What is the Director or the story trying to tell ? Dont know. Everything and every character in the drama is messed up. So what? Are we supposed to be watching a “A Legion of Madness” ? And above all, the Director is not creative at all. He copies the “hair tying” scene from another drama (CLOY) and the “shirt pulling” scene (where JB was pulling SB from the road at the traffic lights). This scene is copied from the variety show ILA. Hey Director, dont be brain lazy!! Be original and be innovative.

    The actress playing the bones professor has not improve in her acting skills at all. After all these years, no change.

  17. 17 : Shiva Says:

    Jin Se Yun can’t act. every drama she played she ruined that drama. so sorry for Jang ki yong great actor ended up having a flop drama on his list of dramas please don’t play with Jin Se Yun ever again.

  18. 18 : Julie Says:

    This drama is so excited to watch what will coming the next episode.I love both handsome actors but i like Lee Soo Hyuk acting skills is so great in here.Hope this drama get the higher viewer and happy ending;)

  19. 19 : Chocopie Says:

    Here’s my take regarding this drama. I may be wrong though :

    There two parts to the drama. 1) The myth about being born again. A popular belief in Asian culture. This belief is used here as an interesting foundation/base to start off the story. Plus, here in Part( 1) its purpose is to be used as a distraction and false lead to stoke viewers interest and suspens. To drive viewers to distraction and confusion.

    So, lets leave this Part (1) of the story. There is nothing much to it. Instead go to Part(2). Part(1) is good as a base for reference only as it still contains residual info as backstory for Part(2).

    Part(2) of drama/story is crucial. Its the substance of the story of this drama. Its about the present time and the people living in this time and what is going to happen to them as the drama unfolds. Main people here are JB, SB, SH, HY (SH mother in law), JB’s Dad, Mum and younger brother. HY’s character is evil and vengeful.
    She’s got ulterior motives. JB’s dad does love JB, and he using his influence and power is quietly abd secretly protecting JB. On top of this, eitherJB’s bro or Mum cud be the monster.

    SB and SH are just caught in the drama here owing to their fates, going by the “born again” belief.

    JB is well aware of the intrigues and the goings on around him, but at the moment for many reasons he is powerless to act. He’s cool. Bidding his time. He’s no monster. He’s smart and he knows right from wrong. Its a pity though that he does not know that his dad really loves him. His dad is protecting him from “the monsters”.

    I think deep seated hatred and evil revenge is the theme of the drama here. JB is caught in centre, the pawn.

    Anything else in story is just superflous – to lead, mislead, misinform and to confuse the viewer in order to create what the Writer thinks make a great script ?? Eeeeeek !!!!

  20. 20 : Chocopie Says:

    If only actor Jang Ki Yong will take up a more pleasant and bright project in future.

    He’s been in too many dark and melancholy jobs already. Not healthy.

    Jang Ki Yong, how do you get out of character when a project is over. Please make sure you do.

  21. 21 : Yul Says:

    Jang ki yong,s Younger Brother seems more like a psycho imo. You can watch online or Download Born Again with English Subtitles at dramahive : https://dramahive.com/download-born-again-kdrama-eng-sub/

  22. 22 : vespertyne29 Says:

    Jong beom’s father does NOT love him. JB isn’t even his son, but from a sperm donor his wife got found through the (apparently illegal) sperm bank that Soo-hyeok’s future father-in-law (the father of his crazy fiance) runs. It’s probably the sperm of a psychopath. The Chief prosecutor isn’t protecting JB because he loves him, but because he doesn’t want the negative publicity of a psycho killer in the family. He’s already changed JB’s name, after he was convicted or murder at age 15.

    While it appears highly likely that Jong-beom hasn’t killed anyone YET, but is being framed by someone who is doing the killing, the evidence against him is OVERWHELMING. So Soo-hyeok would be a blind, stupid, incompetent prosecutor not to want to arrest him. There’s no way he can know that someone is framing JB. Only JB knows that, and he won’t talk.

    But regardless of whether he is already a murdered, JB has and is planning murders. Plus he is a psychopath who can feel no genuine human emotions, but is obsessed with Sa-bin, and shows his “love” by stalking her, planting a tracking device and recording (of photos and texts and messages) device on her phone, and by stealing her diary, then pretending he knows everything she likes. He is one sick puppy. VERY sick. And while he may not harm Sa-bin, he will kill anyone who he thinks will take her away from him. That isn’t love – that’s sick obsession.

  23. 23 : Misu Says:

    This is a sad and mess up drama. Kim Soo Hyuk is a stupid prosecutor that did not know his ex-gf is a killer. Feel sorry for Chun Jong Bum because he like the same girl from previous life and his family treat him so bad.
    Hopefully this drama ending is good.

  24. 24 : Michael Says:

    vespertyne29 #22

    Wow… looks like you are jealous. Have you always been like this? Even jealous of a drama’s character, Jong Bum. Its ok to be jealous. Its a human’s weakest spot. Not an admirable emotion though.

  25. 25 : Chocopie Says:

    Yeah Yeah Yeah !!!! Jong Bum will not die. Saved by… someone unexpected?

    Meanwhile, stay safe everyone !! Covid-19 is still out there. As deadly as my grandmama’s gogujang.

  26. 26 : quinnqaqa Says:

    I love this story very much👍🏻💞😊to be honest the main reason i watch this drama cuz of lee soohyuk😍i love his acting ,he really got into his charachter 👍🏻❣️but i’m feeling a bit dissapointed cuz many people didn’t see his talent :'( too me he is a good actor. I used to watch him in drama titled Sweet Stranger and Me ,he looks handsome back then😍❤️many people maybe say he is underrated actor but to me it’s not. maybe luck don’t side with him, who knows?director and producer please notice him!!how could you can missed such a great actor like him?🙃however,i will support him as the most amazing actor i’ve ever like. FIGHTING LEE SOOHYUK, WE WILL SUPPORT YOU!💕LOVE FROM MALAYSIA🇲🇾💝saranghae oppa,don’t give up!😘

  27. 27 : quinnqaqa Says:

    Fighting KBS!💕

  28. 28 : Chocopie Says:

    The story is coming to an end soon. However, I still do not understand what the drama or story is about. So far what I can catch of the drama is that its about killings and more killings, but killing for what? A killers club in mad killing frenzy mode? Or is it all about harvesting human organs?

    Too much tinkering and manipulations of the mind here. Sickening mess.

    Anyway, Jeong Bum fighting !! Looks like you are the only sane character in the drama. The others people are all crumbling and falling apart. And I hope you will not die.

  29. 29 : HeeBa Says:

    It’s sooooooooooooooooooo good! I’ll be upset if Kiyong died in the end or something 🙁

  30. 30 : Chocopie Says:

    Got mixed feelings here about Born Again. It will be closing soon. Will put my thoughts here first in case I am kept busy away on assignments.

    Actor Jang Ki Yong, thanks. Happy, you will look at doing projects that are bright and breezy too in future. WWW was a good one, Morgan.

    Yes, its not easy to act in a dual role drama with a tough script. But you’ve done well. So have your colleagues SH and JSY. They did well too. Keep up the good work.

    Stay safe !! Have a nice day !!

  31. 31 : Soleil Says:

    Here’s my understanding about the story’s message. It’s not about the eternal love. It was about a man who deserves to love and to be loved. In the past and present time he knew he did bad things but try to change himself to be a better person. I just realized it when Hye Mi wrote in her laptop, so that was the writer herself/himself conveying her/his message that love is for all.

  32. 32 : pinggua Says:

    a great ending with the 3 lead great acting. those spoiler should not continue to watch if they dont like thriller like this…they spoil other people who enjoy the drama…great writer with the end of the twist in the story…

  33. 33 : gaby Says:

    did he die in the end..not sure i understand the ending..but i really enjoy the movie, very emotional last episode..great job all actor to my oppa jongki,LSY and the actress.

  34. 34 : pinggua Says:

    great job acting by jongki, LSH and the female lead…good twist of story , it take the mind to go out f the box to understand….but i am happy with the ending that JB finally received love by the lady lead…

  35. 35 : gaby Says:

    Love this drama, though a bit confusing but the writer is so smart to put the twist of the story…in the end, its about people would klil for love, all the ji yong kill to gave his love a heart, soo hyuk kill to protect his love,,the phyco woman kill to love the man she love but he dump her.

  36. 36 : ivy Says:

    This is such an excellent drama with unpredictable twist in the end , cant understand why people dont like it…wonderful acting by all the 3 leads, jong ki, SH, SB,

  37. 37 : shellane Says:

    People who like thriller and can think outside the box should watch is drama by the excellent male lead.Jong ki never disappoint in his acting, I am beginning to like LSH acting too, I think this is one of his best in the few drama I seen him in….

  38. 38 : miyake Says:

    Good show , I love the story& support ACTOR Lee Soo Hyuk, love his acting & he look handsome & have a sharp features,, Hope more producer will give him more roles ..

  39. 39 : Moe Says:
