Despite creating a “fever” on the small screen, Reborn Rich still cannot avoid the “grains”. In the scenes shot in Turkey, the film was criticized for portraying your country as a country with many evils and lack of safety. The film has many important characters that make it difficult for viewers to grasp all the names of each person in the main storyline.

Although at the beginning of the film there is a fantasy element when the male protagonist is revived and retains the memory of his previous life, but many details in the script are still criticized for being forced. When Do Joon was reincarnated as the youngest son of a tycoon, had a huge fortune as a child and still loved his family in his previous life. However, despite frequenting the restaurant of his biological mother in his previous life, he still left his biological parents to live in poverty, and his mother died due to poverty. Obviously there are ways to help his parents live better with the money he has.
In addition, the male lead Do Joon does not fully reveal his inherent ability when the most critical situations stem from the fact that he already knows the future. So Do Joon can accurately predict who will win the election, how the “bubble” on the stock exchange will unfold, or which companies will be highly profitable to invest in. Many viewers feel that much of that success doesn’t come from actual talent.
