Love Rain Releases New Stills of Leads Jang Geun Seok and Yoona

Jang Geun Seok has fallen into a niche of playing artistic types in project after project, even if the profession ranges from musician to dancer and now to painter. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I sorta miss emo-Prince Chang Hwe and his ilk, the poker-faced emotionally-damaged type. For the upcoming Love Rain (which I always associate with some sort of NC-17 shower from above), more pictures are trickling out of Jang Geun Seok and leading lady Yoona’s 1970s incarnation. While even Seok can’t rise above the dreaded bowl haircut, I’m loving his intense expression while painting. The drama has been filming off-and-on for the past two months already, and will take a break so it can resume in the Spring because PD Yoon Seok Ho loves to incorporate the seasons into his dramas.

  1. Seukie looks so adorable… I want to miniaturise him and put him in my pocket~~ For some reason, this whole movie is giving a Coffee Prince vibe from the stills… But since the lead actress is Yoona and the extended cast aren’t big names, I’m apprehensive about saying that sentence. I really hope I’m proven wrong though, and everyone and everything pulls together, cast and storyline included. I love Seukie too much to have him experience a meh drama ^u^

  2. I love the bowl haircut! (Admittedly, I am a big fan of 1970s fashion in general – hooray for vintage stores). I like JGS and the director (yes, I am unfashionable enough to unabashedly love the seasons’ dramas) and the premise sounds up my alley but every time I think about Yoona, my enthusiasm goes does the drain.

    Oh well, maybe she’ll surprise me.

    I can see why JGS gets typecast though – he’s got the boho artist vibe down cold.

    And no Chang Hwe ever, please! For one, I hated Emo Prince. For another, he was a dead ringer for a (female) cousin of mine in that look, and that was very disturbing.

    • For a moment I thought you meant that you hated Yoona so much you would drive into her repeatedly for 16 hours straight.. then I read the rest of the sentence =3

      Also, the way I see it, there are only so many boho artist roles out there that JGS can do, after that it’s back to brooding hero… so imma enjoy JGS-boho-ness while it’s there ^u^

  3. Too effeminate. Not selling the ” I love women” story anymore. Yoona who? Actually not too many are selling the I like girls.

  4. I actually like his hair. Haha. Compared to the permed hair he had during M3.
    And how can one picture be that good? Even if it’s just a still, I can see the emotions from him.
    And yeah, a change of character type in his future dramas would be welcome. Really.
    Speaking of future dramas, I wonder if he would try doing another sageuk. Oohhh…exciting. Haha.
