When I saw the picture above, the first thing I yelped was “OMG, no way Lee Mi Sook plays the aged older version of Yoona‘s character from the 70s?!?” And then of course, a quick check confirms that, indeed, 70s version of Yoona’s character turns into Lee Mi Sook in 2012. I hope this is one of those casting specifically against the realm of possibility simply to make it funny. Because one is fire and brimstone and walking sex on legs and the other is……not. Despite being pre-sold to seemingly a bajillion countries, Love Rain with Jang Geun Seok and Yoona seems to be flying under the radar in terms of anticipation around the English drama blogs. You all know it’s premiering tomorrow on KBS, right? When I watched all the previews, I just realized that Yoon Seok Ho‘s brand of hyper-posed romanticism just comes across as anachronistic in this day and age. It’s been exactly ten years since Winter Sonata, so we’ll just have to see if the audiences are craving for more of Maestro Yoon’s brand of season-driven lovelorn angst. Read on for all the English-subbed trailers for Love Rain.
