Excited about this *possible* Song Joong Ki project? Here are some fast facts about the upcoming K-drama, Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son:
What's the plot of Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son?
Adapted from the popular web novel of the same name, Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son is centered on a man who was betrayed by a chaebol family that he's been loyal to for more than a decade. What's a chaebol, you ask? It's a large conglomerate owned by a family. Think of South Korea's Samsung, Lotte, and Hyundai—these household brands has a string of companies under its umbrella.
Back to the drama's storyline, the worst thing that the chaebol family did was to frame him for embezzlement and killing him! Later on, he was reborn "as the youngest son of the chaebol family and plans revenge as he works to gradually take over", according to Soompi.
JTBC, who brought us the high-rating series A World Of Married Couple, Itaewon Class, and Sky Castle, has been eyeing Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son as its special project and will be broadcasting the drama on their network.
What's the role that was offered to Joong Ki in Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son?
Joong Ki will play the titular role in this drama! IDK about you but I feel a hint of Vincenzo Cassano here (because of the revenge thing) or maybe that's just me missing him as a mafia consigliere?? Anyways, our oppa is currently reviewing the offer and we hope he accepts it!
P.S: We're also looking forward to this drama's other cast members. Who do you think will join Joong Ki? Let us know in the comment section!
Who will be directing Chaebol Family's Youngest Son?
According to reports, Jung Dae Yoon, the director behind W: Two Worlds and She Was Pretty is at the helm of this drama. Joining him is screenwriter Kim Tae Hee, who penned Designated Survivor: 60 Days and Sungkyunkwan Scandal. That means if Joong Ki accepts the role, he will be reuniting with Tae Hee writernim!
When is the premiere date of Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son?
Chaebol Family's Youngest Son was initially slated to air in 2019 but was postponed due to some circumstances. Since it's confirmed that JTBC will be broadcasting it, the upcoming series will start filming in the second half of 2021 and will be released in the first half of 2022.
