[TALK OF THE TOWN] Forecast calls for ‘Rain’A press conference for the upcoming movie “Season of Good Rain” was held last Tuesday at the Megabox Dongdaemun. The film stars Korean actor Jung Woo-sung and Chinese actress Gao Yuanyuan as Dong-ha and Mei, respectively. The characters are friends who later find love despite a language barrier.
The title of the film is a phrase from a piece of writing by the prominent Chinese poet Du Fu of the Tang Dynasty. Director Hur Jin-ho said he chose it himself.
“I wanted to make a film about bright and happy love,” Hur said, in contrast to his previous works such as “Christmas in August,” “April Snow” and “Happiness” that featured tragic love stories.
