Upcoming drama “Love Rain” has received a lot of attention both at home and overseas for its stellar lineup, famous director, and popular screen writer. “Love Rain” stars hallyu star Jang Geun Suk and SNSD’s YoonA as its main leads and also includes “Super Star K’s” Seo In Gook, “Powerful Opponents’” Kim Si Hoo, “Spy Myung Wol’s” Son Eun Seo, and “Smile Mom’s” Hwang Bo Ra.
Producers of the series announced that there is a strong possibility that “Love Rain” will air on KBS once “Dream High 2” ends in March. The cast and crew have already completed filming the 1970s scenes, and shooting the present day scenes will resume in late February/early March in Japan. Jang Geun Suk, YoonA, Kim Si Hoo, and other central characters will officially kick off filming the 2012 scenes in Hokaido, Japan, where they will film their characters’ first encounter with each other.
“Love Rain” is a melo-love story set in two different periods – the 1970s and 2012. Jang Geun Suk and YoonA play Seo In Ha and Kim Yoon Hee, two college students who fall in love with each other in the 1970s; unfortunately, these two do not get their happily ever after. Fast forward to the present, Seo Joon, In Ha’s son (also played by Jang Geun Suk) meets and falls in love with Ha Na, Yoon Hee’s daughter (also played by YoonA). Jang Geun Suk’s 1970s Seo In Ha is a romantic arts student who is willing to lay down his life for the love of his life. His son Seo Joon, on the other hand, is a carefree photographer who enjoys a freewheeling lifestyle. YoonA’s 1970s Kim Yoon Hee is a pure, elegant “campus goddess,” while her daughter Ha Na is a bright and lovable character.
Director Yoon Seok Ho and writer Oh Soo Yeon, the masterminds behind the sensational melodramas “Winter Sonata” and “Autumn in my Heart” have teamed up once again to produce “Love Rain.” With the combination of Jang Geun Suk, YoonA, director Yoon Seok Ho, and writer Oh Soo Yeon, it doesn't come as a surprise that “Love Rain” has already secured a Japanese broadcaster.
"Love Rain" aims to air its pilot episode this coming March.
