PD Yoon Suk Ho, who’s famous for his melodramas like ‘Autumn Tale‘ and ‘Winter Sonata‘, is reuniting with writer Oh Soo Yun for the new drama, ‘Love Rain‘. The drama boasts a formidable cast comprised of Jang Geun Suk, SNSD‘s YoonA, Son Eun Seo, Hwang Bora, and Seo In Guk.
‘Love Rain’ recently held its first script-reading session with the cast, PD, and writer. PD Yoon Suk Ho led the meeting with careful and detailed suggestions on the acting. Jang Geuk Suk and Yoon prepared for their parts thoroughly, and the atmosphere in the meeting seemed no different from the actual filming environment.
The story portrays both the pure emotional love story from the ’70s, as well as the more modern type of love. PD Yoon Suk Ho reflected, “Many of the actors and actresses in this drama may not have experienced the style of romance felt in the ’70s.” He mused, “Looking back on my memories, it was an enjoyable time; that nostalgia is reflected in this production.”
Jang Geun Suk will play a double role as a father and son, ‘Seo In Ha‘ and ‘Seo Jun‘. Commenting on his roles, he stated, “When I first saw the script, I cried a lot. I feel an ambition to express the two characters’ emotions, in addition to the emotions I feel and the sincere message I want to say through ‘Love Rain’.”
Jokingly, he continued, “I usually covers roles that portray energetic personalities, but trying to do something more calm and steady ,it feels uneasy.“.
YoonA will play two roles as well; she’s accepted the part of ‘Kim Yoon Hee‘, a shy beauty from the ’70s arc of the show, as well as ‘Yuri‘, a cheerful girl from the present time. YoonA explained “The burden is big, as I have to act as two characters who have contradictory personalities. But by being together with the PD, writer, and the other actors and actresses, I have a strong heart. One by one, I’ll do everything possible.”
After the script-reading ended, the actors and actresses ate dinner together and became even closer. Filming is scheduled to begin in September and the drama will air in early 2012.
