Hallyu star Jang Keun-suk will partner with Yoona from Girls’ Generation to play a pair of lovers on the new KBS drama “Love Rain,” which airs from Monday.
In the highly anticipated collaboration, the two stars will play characters that weave in and out of the 1970s and the present. Filming for the 1970s part of the program has been completed, while the portion representing the present is still being made.
A press conference for the program was held at the Lotte Hotel in central Seoul on Thursday, during which the cast and crew spoke about the project.
“It was challenging trying to play a character from an era before my time, but it was also a lot of fun, and it was truly an honor to be a part of such an epic tale,” Jang said of his work in the 1970s portion.
Yoona said she was a bit daunted at first, but her nerves settled down once filming began. “Previously, I’ve only worked with co-stars who were way older than me, and so they always took care of me. The thought of working with people my age was frightening.”
