Cast of new drama ‘Rainbow Rose’ speaks at conferenceThe cast and crew of the new drama “Rainbow Rose” intended for Japanese TV attended a press conference in Tokyo on April 3. Ahead of the show’s debut on April 13, multiethnic stars of the show took turns to speak about the drama.
“The drama has a cast from Korea, Japan and the United States, and we all gave it our best to create a colorful body of work,” said the director, Kim Soo-ryong. The director added that despite the short filming time in Korea, actors worked hard, which dissipated any cultural barriers that may have otherwise slowed production.
Meanwhile, KARA member Kang Ji-young said that she fell in love with her character, causing much laughter among her family members.
“At home I’d sing and dance just like the character Yuri would, and my mom thought I was delusional,” Kang said.
She added that this was the first time she took on the challenge of acting since she made her debut with KARA four years ago.
“I’ve learned so much and have some precious memories that will stay with me forever.”
Meanwhile, Japanese actress Elena Mizusawa said the drama had it all, including “family, friendship and romance.”
