Born Again K-drama Plot
Born Again tells the story of three people, a serial killer, a detective who is trying to find him, and the detective’s lover who is being pursued romantically by said serial killer. This was around the 1980s, and while they died out, they get reincarnated and meet each other again during the present day through fate.
Here are the characters of Born Again:
Kong Ji Cheol (played by Chang Ki Yong) was a serial killer in his past life and he let go of his inhibitions to become inhuman just like his father. He gets reincarnated as Cheon Jong Beom, who is a medical student.

Jung Ha Eun (played by Jin Se Yun) suffered from dilated cardiomyopathy (inability of the heart to pump blood due to an enlarged or weakened left ventricle) in her lifetime and was a lover of Cha Hyeong Bin. She was also a one-sided love interest of serial killer Kong Ji Cheol. She has now reincarnated as Jung Sa Bin, a bone archaeology instructor.
