Born Again K-drama: Does it have a happy or a sad ending?

Spoilers ahead. The characters Jung Sa-Bin, Cheon Jong-Beom, and Kim Soo-Hyeok connect after reincarnation. Fate had something else planned for them. Their lives again get intertwined. As time passes, situations start to become like a cobweb.

In the final episode, Jong-Beom (Jang Ki-Yong) is seen lying in the hospital while Sa-Bin shows him stuff to wake him up. Meanwhile, Jong-Beom’s memory travels back to the past when he finds Sa-Bin in the bookshop. He recognizes her and calls out her name. This shows that his surgery was a success, and he had lost his memory only for a short time.

In her present life, Sa-Bin found herself confused about whom to choose as her partner between Kim Soo-Hyeok (played by Lee Soo-Hyuk) and Jong-Beom. However, when Jong-Beom cleared his name from being a serial killer, Sa-Bin could separate her strong feelings for him.

Soo-Hyeok even helps Jong-Beom to clear his slate from his past life. The creators tried to give a happy ending to the drama. While Sa-Bin, in her past life, ended up with Kim Soo-Hyeok’s past character. But, in their present life, she gets her happily ever after with Jong-Beom. The love triangle might have created quite a lot of confusion for the viewers, but it was the main spark of the drama Born Again.

Jang Ki-Yong, Jin Se-Yeon, and Lee Soo-Hyuk‘s chemistry was loved by the viewers. However, the drama received mixed reviews. Even though the creators gave a happy ending, they couldn’t follow up with the storyline throughout the series.
