This time on “Would I Date Him?”I reflect upon the leading man from the series Welcome 2 Life.
Our candidate: Welcome 2 Life’s Lee Jae Sang, portrayed by Rain, is a lawyer. He begins the series working to keep guilty rich clients out of jail, but a car accident sends him to another universe where he finds himself a prosecutor working to put the guilty rich in jail.
Rain is one of my cadres of cuties (actors I follow and watch their dramas). Last year’s Sketch was one of my favorite dramas of 2018. I hoped Rain would luck out and with another great character in Welcome 2 Life.
Background. Jae Sang is a ruthless lawyer who finds his world turned upside down after a car accident. He wakes married to a woman he dated years earlier, a father, and now a prosecutor fighting evil.
BOLD. Jae Sang took risks in both universes. Sometimes his choices paid big and sometimes it was a bust. But Jae Sang was never a shy flower. He went for it.
LEVERAGED PAST EXPERIENCE. Jae Sang remembered what happened in each universe and leveraged it to make progress in the universe he was in.
EVOLVED. Jae Sang began the series selfish and ruthless. It wasn’t an easy path but he came to understand what mattered in life and pursued it with vigor.
NOT CAUTIOUS. Jae Sang believed his plans would work. Skirting the edge of ethics…not a problem. Rushing headlong without seeing the consequences should something go wrong…lather, rinse, repeat.
WANTED WEALTH. Jae Sang start out a wealthy lawyer with power and an ego to match. When he woke in the opposite universe, he was a prosecutor with a modest salary and a family to take care of. He couldn’t stand not having money and was willing to chuck pursuit of justice in pursuit of wealth.
Is he my next date?
He’s smart, good looking, passionate, and willing to evolve and embrace what matters in life. But I can’t overlook that he’s in love with his wife and daughter and NOT available. I’ll have to pass on dating him. But I’m happy to say I know a good lawyer!
