Jang Geun Suk Is a Romantic Artist in "Love Rain"


Love Rain is slated for broadcast in early 2012, but the anticipation for the drama has already started to build with release of still shots of its lead stars Jang Geun Suk and SNSD’s YoonA in character.

Pictures recently released are of Jang Geun Suk in one of the character he plays, Seo In Ha, a university student in the 1970s who falls in love with Kim Yoon Hee, YoonA’s character. In the photos, the actor is seen in a brightly lit workshop, and he appears to be finishing a painting. The soft sunlight and his “artist-at-work” poses give off a soft, romantic charisma.

“The 1970s Seo In Ha is gentle and caring. His lines are poetic,” Jang Geun Suk said. “I am working to the best of my ability to express the innocence and the feelings of the drama.”

“Love Rain” is a cross-generational love story set in the 1970s and in the present time. Jang Geun Suk and YoonA play the young lovers in 1970s and again as the characters’ children in the present.

The drama, produced by director Yoon Suk Ho and scenarist Oh Soo Yeon, the team behind such successful Hallyu hits as “Winter Sonata” and “Autumn in My Heart,” is aimed for release in the first half of 2012.
