Again My Life: Episode 1 (First Impressions)

by DaebakGrits

AgainMyLife1_00.jpg

 

Hold onto your seats, Beanies, because you’re in for a fast and bumpy ride with the premiere of Again My Life. But like an old school wooden roller coaster that jerks and jostles you around, it’s still pretty fun.

Editor’s note: Continued drama coverage is pending based on Beanie feedback.
 
EPISODE 1 FIRST IMPRESSIONS

 

Our latest justice porn drama wastes no time introducing our protagonist and antagonist, and as far as first impressions go, there’s very little mystery about where our main characters lie on the good versus evil spectrum.

 

KIM HEE-WOO (Lee Jun-ki) is a righteous prosecutor who fights crime in the courtroom and — more questionably — on the streets, but there’s no denying that he’s on the side of justice. And if his moral compass — and sexy glasses — weren’t enough to have you rooting for him, he’s a kind-hearted soul who buys up all of an ajumma’s gimbap so she won’t get in trouble for illegally selling food in the subway station. Like all too-perfect-to-be-true heroes, this prosecutor has a white whale villain that he’s destined to defeat.

Enter JO TAE-SUB (Lee Kyung-young). He’s a politician and a “kingmaker” with a lot of important people in his pocket, including South Korea’s president and Chief Prosecutor KIM SEOK-HOON (Choi Kwang-il), Hee-woo’s boss. The public loves him, not knowing he’s secretly a criminal and blackmailing the country’s most powerful people into doing his bidding.

 

When Hee-woo presses charges against Tae-sub, these two foes finally meet and face-off across an interrogation table. There’s a lot of tension and verbal sparring that’s emphasized by split-screen staredowns and the intentional use of banmal to belittle each other. Hee-woo is confident that he has cornered Tae-sub and will trap him with his evidence and key witness.

Unfortunately, Tae-sub’s network of accomplices is wide, and he’s aware of the secret witness, who’s since been “persuaded” (i.e., tied to the roof of a very tall building until he fearfully agreed) to recant his testimony. Hee-woo is lured to the same rooftop, where he fights off Tae-sub’s hitman and two female lackeys.

Despite Hee-woo’s mixed martial arts skills, the hitman is able to get the best of Hee-woo and injects him with a drug cocktail before tossing him over the side of the building. In death, Hee-woo will be painted as a shamed, druggie prosecutor who committed suicide, and his accusations against Tae-sub will be discredited.

 

As Hee-woo falls to his death, time stops, and he magically reappears on the roof where a mysterious Woman in Red confirms that he is, indeed, dead. A reel of his life’s greatest — and not so great — hits plays out before him, and it’s a bit like the Rocky montage, as he goes from a poor and bullied underdog to a kick-butt prosecutor.

 

Hee-woo emphatically assures her that he will dish Tae-sub a heaping dose of justice if he’s given a do-over, so she sends him back in time. Like, waaaaay back — as in he’s barely out of high school and still working at a convenience store. When she said he should take his time to prepare and trap Tae-sub perfectly, she meant it.

On the 15th, Fantagio's agency Fantagio said, "Han Ki-chan has been cast in the SBS Friday-Saturday drama 'Again My Life'.

 

In the drama, Han Ki-chan takes on the role of Kim Young-il, the son of Kim Seok-hoon (Choi Kwang-il), the chief of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office. Yeong-il is a person who doesn't hesitate to talk nonsense. He always dislikes his half-brother's sister-in-law, Kim Han-mi (Kim Jae-kyung), and is expected to add tension to the play by causing conflict every time he encounters it.

 

Ki-chan Han started his full-fledged acting career through the web drama 'Where Your Eyes Stay' in 2020, and is a newcomer who first made eye contact with viewers as Han Tae-joo, who has a scar behind his bright appearance in the play. Then, with 'Your Playlist' released last year, he took on the role of 'Cha Cha-young', a young man who wanders between love and friendship. In 'Find the Hidden Guy', which aired in the same year, he played the role of 'Yoo Go-gyeol', who looks cool but has pure charm than anyone else. did. After being cast as the lead in 'Ocean Like Me' to be released in the first half of this year, this time, 'Again My Life' will take the lead in the first drama.

SBS’s “Again My Life” released new stills of Lee Joon Gi on his path to revenge!

“Again My Life” is a drama about a young prosecutor who gets a second chance at justice after failing to bring down a powerful person. Lee Joon Gi stars as Kim Hee Woo, who was unjustly killed while investigating a corrupt politician but unexpectedly gets a second chance at life. Kim Ji Eun stars as Kim Hee Ah, a genius and the youngest daughter of Cheonha Group’s CEO.

Although Woo Yong Soo (Lee Soon Jae) appears to be a shabby old man, he is actually a sharp and seasoned wealthy individual who has great sense when it comes to real estate. In the newly released stills, Kim Hee Woo receives a harsh initiation into the world of real estate by Woo Yong Soo, and they portray contrasting attitudes during their first meeting at a real estate auction.

In the stills, Kim Hee Woo appears to be slightly at a loss in front of Woo Yong Soo, especially since Kim Hee Woo is experiencing his first real estate auction. Curious about the spirited Kim Hee Woo, Woo Yong Soo scans him up and down from head to toe.

First Impressions: “Again My Life” Is A Twisty Tale Of Slow Burn Vengeance

Apr 15, 2022
by shalini
 

Lee Joon Gi’s back and in fine martial form as a hotheaded prosecutor who lives by the law and his fists. On paper, the character does seem a little too similar to the one he played in “Lawless Lawyer,” but in practice, they end up being reasonably distinct. At a pace so frenetic that it feels like a movie at times, “Again My Life” makes its entrance with a splash. This show doesn’t waste time in getting us back to the past, and it pulls no punches in showing how entrenched corruption is in society. Yet, the heart and soul of this drama remains in the little moments where Lee Joon Gi gets to do what we all undoubtedly dream of at points and returns to his past to reshape his future.

Here’s what we loved about the premiere episodes!

Warning: spoilers for episodes 1-2 below.

1. A level-headed hero

We’ve really started to move away from characters that only embody a single trait to much more complex people, and I’m loving it! K-dramas are rife with unorthodox prosecutors and lawyers, especially hot-headed ones, meaning that Kim Hee Woo (Lee Joon Gi) has to work extra hard to stand out as a character. At first, he seems the classic fast-talking prosecutor, but after our backwards time skip, Hee Woo proves to have a surprisingly gentle personality, a mind as sharp as a knife, and a tendency to think before he acts (a rarity amongst many drama characters). Hee Woo is at times vaguely reminiscent of Hwang Si Mok (Cho Seung Woo) in the excellent “Forest of Secrets.” As we relive the events that shaped Hee Woo, his former off-kilter demeanor starts to make sense. So, when he goes back and has a chance to do it all over, his personality softens to the person he could have been before life hit him in the face. He’s so easy to root for!

I am so glad he is getting a team to help him this time, it is better. Episode 3 was good.

 

This is not a love line is this one eh?.

Loving the action /fight scenes in this drama but such a physically demanding role for LJG!

 

There didn't seem to be much romance in the manwha (I am only half way through) but might be different in the drama ?:)
