“Welcome 2 Life” Flashes Character Posters Of Rain, Lim Ji Yeon & Kwak Si Yang
Exploring parallel world in MBC’s new fantasy series looks more enticing with latest released image teasers.
On July 5, the network dropped character photo teasers of Jung Ji Hoon (Rain), Lim Ji Yeon and Kwak Si Yang.
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.
Meet the Main Leads
Portraying the main lead is Jung Ji Hoon. Playing two characters of different personalities is one of the drawing points of the series. In the released photos, the distinct variations of the roles show cold and warm facades of the characters Jung is about to play.
Returning to the small screen since Blow Breeze, Lim Ji Yeon suits up as the story’s female lead. 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.
Contrasting faces of Lim reflects her character photo as she barely smile in one of her personas and charmingly beams at the other.
Rounding up the cast is Kwak Si Yang (Chicago Tyypewriter). In both worlds, he will portray the role of Si On’s partner detective. Peering intently, his image shows unfazed attitude and cryptic message of his roles in both worlds.
Helming the project is Director Kim Geun Heong. His portfolio boasts hit period dramas such as Jumong, Queen Seon Deok, and Yi San among others. Penning the series is Yoo Hee Kyung.
Welcome 2 Life premieres on July 29 via MBC.
