The catchphrase that hooked me up with the drama. Is it possible to fall for a drama way before its premiere? It is possible for me in some rare cases and this time, I hope the charm stays with me until the end. The Incarnation of Money is set to take over Cheongdamdong Alice’s slot this Saturday and I think I’ll follow this one too, making it the fourth SBS’ weekend drama I watch in a row.
It’s not too much to say that I have high hopes and expectations for the drama simply because:
- The team behind it was also the one who rocked Giant and History of the Salaryman. Though I have yet to watch the former, the latter was a journey full of crack and I won’t mind to have another dose of that crack.
- Hwang Jung-eum. Yeah, I really, really like her.
- Kang Ji-hwan. I recently finished Capital Scandal and was this close to watch Lie to Me, so this is a good thing for the drama to arrive at the right time.
The Incarnation of Money is centered around a prosecutor Lee Cha-don (Kang Ji-hwan) who lost his parents at a young age and soon lost his memories of his life as a chaebol because of an accident. Bok Hwa-sul (Kim Soo-mi), the one who caused the accident took him under his care and he grew up together with the woman’s daughter Bok Jae-in (Hwang Jung-eum). Being raised with the money her mother earned through the loan shark business, Jae-in was a lonely girl despite the wealth from the money they had while Cha-don’s perfect life was shattered in a blink of an eye because of the money. Ji Se-gwang (Park Sang-min) and Eun Bi-ryung (Oh Yoon-ah) hold the secret that destroyed his family, again because of the money.
The press conference was held on Tuesday and the 15-minute preview was disclosed at the event. I haven’t watched the whole video, just because I’m afraid of knowing too much details about the drama.

In case you haven’t seen the teasers, these are the two teasers released:
The posters are yet to be released but I’m all for the money-like backdrop poster to be used as the main poster. Pretty please! I love that one so much 😉 The Incarnation of Money will air its first episode on February 2nd. Gotta love the cast, including the recurring ones from the team’s previous works. Curious? Let that be a surprise then~
EDIT: Here’s a slightly longer teaser number 3. Two days left!
