H  Hi Oly40, thanks for sharing this. This drama will be broadcast  on July 29, taking over MBC’s Monday & Tuesday 10PM time slot after “Partners for Justice Season 2.”  They're the newest additions to the cast who will play antagonists to the trio, who are Rain, Lim Ji Yeon, and Kwak Si Yang . First is Sohn Byung-ho, who plays a straight-up villain as a big-shot CEO of a construction company.  Han Sang-jin will play the managing partner of one of the top five law firms in Korea. He and Rain’s character are great partners in the original world, they are as great work enemies once Rain crosses over into the parallel world where he’s a righteous prosecutor. Choi Phillip, who will be playing a one-sided rival who sounds more harmless and vaguely amusing than anything else. :P

Adjusting to a new reality in MBC’s Welcome 2 Life

Credits to by tipsymocha (dramabeans)


We’re getting a bit of an onslaught of drama premieres this month, and it’s frankly starting to get a little hard to keep track of (I think I heard the number 18 somewhere). One of those will be MBC’s Welcome 2 Life, the sci-fi rom-com that features Rain (Sketch), Im Ji-yeon (Blow Breeze), and Kwak Shi-yang (Chicago Typewriter). The show has released some new stills of the three leads, showing the two detectives at work, and the parallel-universe-traversing lawyer looking a little worse for wear in his new reality.

Just as a little refresher in case you’re as somewhat overwhelmed as I’m starting to feel with all these new shows, Rain will play a star defense attorney who does anything he can to get his clients victories in the courtroom. The wily lawyer somehow ends up getting sucked into a parallel universe where he’s an upright prosecutor who does everything by the book. He’ll also have to deal with the fact that the people he knows in his own reality have parallel-universe counterparts that may take some getting used to.

Namely, the biggest shock to his system has to be Im Ji-yeon’s character, who is sporting a rather unflattering bob in the stills and is a hot-headed, no-nonsense detective, which naturally puts her at odds with Rain’s defense attorney. However, in the parallel universe Rain finds himself in, his counterpart is Im Ji-yeon’s husband and, apparently from these stills, a father. And last, but not least, is Kwak Shi-yang, looking appropriately serious and hard at work as a detective and partner to Im Ji-yeon. His character is described as somewhat gruff, but with a soft side that only comes out around his partner-hoobae.

*** RAIN posted this picture yesterday with a caption : " # Welcome 2 Life # Han Sang Jin " - Han Sang-jin will play in the drama as the managing partner of one of the top five law firms in Korea. He and Rain’s character are great partners in the original world, they are as great work enemies once Rain crosses over into the parallel world where he’s a righteous prosecutor.  :P

Lim Ji Yeon Turns Into A Tough Detective In New Fantasy Rom-Com With Rain


MBC’s upcoming drama “Welcome 2 Life” has revealed new stills of Lim Ji Yeon!


“Welcome 2 Life” is a fantasy rom-com about a selfish lawyer named Lee Jae Sang (played by Rain) who gets sucked into a parallel universe because of an accident and starts living a new life as an upright prosecutor.


Lim Ji Yeon plays Ra Si On, the only female detective in her major crimes unit. In the current world, she is the ex-girlfriend of Lee Jae Sang. In the parallel world, she is a loving mother and the wife of a nice, upstanding Lee Jae Sang.


In the new stills from Lim Ji Yeon’s first day on set, the actress fully steps into her role as the hardball detective Ra Si On of the “real” world.


A source from the drama said, “Lim Ji Yeon has amazed everyone with her dedication to her role as the tough detective. You’ll fall in love with the character’s wildness. In the parallel world, you’ll see her as a lovely wife and mother. Please look forward to the two very different characters from Lim Ji Yeon.”


“Welcome 2 Life” is set to air after the conclusion of “Partners for Justice 2,” and will be available on Viki. Check out character posters here.

The drama, starring Rain, Lim Ji Yeon, and Kwak Si Yang, is about a selfish lawyer who gets sucked into a parallel universe because of an accident and starts living a new life as an upright prosecutor.


The poster shows the divide between the two worlds. The dark, selfish side of Rain’s character Lee Jae Sang walks along the top half of the poster along with his fellow suits, including Jang Do Sik (played by Son Byung Ho), Kang Yoon Ki (Han Sang Jin), Park Ki Beom (Kim Joong Ki), and Min Sung Jin (Choi Phillip).


The bottom half of the poster is populated by the characters of the parallel world, including Lee Jae Sang (Rain) as the upright prosecutor, Ra Si On (Lim Ji Yeon), Gu Dong Taek (Kwak Si Yang), Oh Seok Jun (Park Won Sang), Park Young Sook (Jang So Yeon), and more.




A source from the drama said, “Jung Ji Hoon (Rain) falls into a parallel world due to an accident, and goes from a selfish lawyer to a completely different life as an upright prosecutor. His relationship with those around him will also undergo a great change. Please look forward to ‘Welcome 2 Life’ and [Rain’s] process of turning over a new leaf between the completely different worlds.” Check out the character posters for the main cast here.

“Welcome 2 Life” Starring Rain Captures Parallel World Theme In Released Drama Teasers




Welcome 2 Life is the newest drama that will take you to imaginative worlds.

MBC’s upcoming drama Welcome 2 Life dropped its main poster featuring two divided worlds.

Starring Jung Ji Hoon (Rain), Lim Ji Yeon and Kwak Si Yang, the image shows distinction of the two worlds to be traversed by the actors. In particular, the colors reflect the mood to be unraveled in the series. While the bottom picture shows bright hues, the inverted part of the image hints a dark ambiance.

Welcome 2 Life centers around the story of  cunning lawyer Lee Jae Sang, who will do everything in his power, may it be good or bad, to win his case. Unfortunately, he meets a car accident. From there, his life will change as he gets trapped to a parallel world. Instead of his former job, he will become an upright prosecutor.


At the top of the poster, figures of people heading to one direction highlights Jung Ji Hoon’s bad lawyer character. Walking along with him are fellow actors including Son Byung Ho, Park Won Sang and Han Sang Jin. Additionally, the purple sky alludes to an ominous impression elicit by the picture.

In contrast, the bottom part of the image reveals Jung Ji Hoon leading the cast entourage in a brightly lit scene. Amplifying the anticipation of the fans, the main poster framed the trajectory of MBC’s ingenious project.

Two Worlds Connected

Playing two characters of different personalities is one of the drawing points of the series. In the initial released photos, the distinct variations of the roles show cold and warm facades of the characters Jung is about to play.


Suiting up as the story’s female lead is Lim Ji Yeon. In Lee Jae Sang’s real world, she plays the role of strong-willed detective, Ra Si On. Also, she is Jae Sang’s former lover, but they are not at all friendly. Interestingly, in the other world, she is a supportive and loving wife to Jae Sang, as he performs his duty as an honorable prosecutor.


Rounding up the cast is Kwak Si Yang (Chicago Typewriter). In both worlds, he will portray the role of Si On’s partner detective.


Welcome 2 Life will premiere on July 29 via MBC at 8:55PM KST.
