On March 22, over 350 reporters and photographers flocked to Lotte Hotel in Seoul for the press conference of upcoming drama “Love Rain,” starring Jang Geun Suk and Girls’ Generation’s YoonA. A representative of “Love Rain” stated, “Domestic and international reporters came to the venue three hours before the start of the event. We believe this is the greatest response a press conference has ever had.” Eager fans also made their way to the venue to catch a glimpse of this generation’s biggest hallyu stars.
Actors Jang Geun Suk, YoonA, Kim Shi Hoo, Lee Mi Sook, Jung Jin Young, Kim Young Kwang, Son Eun Seo, Hwang Bora, Seo In Kook, and director Yoon Seok Ho attended the press conference and expressed their confidence and strong belief that “Love Rain” will become the next hallyu classic.
“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, the 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. Check out the preview here with subs!
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” will premiere on KBS on March 26 at 9:55PM KST.
