Let’s just be honest here and accept that Love Rain with Jang Geun Seok and Yoona will be making buttaloadsa of moolah regardless of whether it turns out good or a teeming piece of crap. It has already been presold to tons of Asian countries, and the Japanese obasan audience is primed for a Yoon Seok Ho drama starring the hottest Korean export to Japan since Yonsama. I care whether LR is quality entertainment, but its moneymaking potential is not up for debate. I wish Seok would pick better projects rather than this and the abominable You’re My Pet movie (OMG, I cringed my way through it), but that just me wanting more for him in terms of challenging his acting chops. LR will be airing on KBS in the Spring of 2012, so a brief snippet was aired during the KBS Drama Awards today. It’s not a real teaser but does afford a first glimpse of the filming and the leads in action. Watch out, a Love Rain is coming your way soon!
