“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.
In the released stills, In Ha and Yoon Hee have their first, heart-pounding encounter. In Ha is wearing paint-covered apron and shoes, whle Yoon Hee is dressed in a feminine floral dress matched with a burgundy cardigan. For In Ha, it’s love at first sight. As shown in the stills, he cannot take his eyes off her as he hands Yoon Hee her books.
Director Yoon Suk Ho commented, “In the 70s, young love was all about romance, innocence, and warmth. The cast and crew put in tremendous effort to portray the love and sensibility of the 70s as accurately as possible.” He added, “With Jang Geun Suk and Yoona’s pure and lyrical charms and personalities, we plan on showing the viewers a beautiful, warm, heart-pounding, and bashful story about love.”
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” is aiming for a spring 2012 broadcast.
