LOVE RAIN - SARANG BI - THEMED TRAVEL - FILMING LOCATION

Love Rain (Hangul사랑비RRSarangbii) is a 2012 South Korean television series directed by Yoon Seok-ho. It aired on KBS2 from March 26 to May 29, 2012 on Mondays and Tuesday at 21:55 for 20 episodes. Set in the seventies and the present day, it tells a heartrending love story over two generations, with Jang Keun-suk and Im Yoona playingdual roles.


Well, as you guys can see that both of our main actors are Korean Top star especially Im Yoona who is one of Girls Generation members. It's love at first sight when Seo In-ha (Jang Keun-suk) and Kim Yoon-hee (Im Yoona) meet as shy university students in the seventies. It takes time for the hesitant pair to finally voice their feelings, but circumstances beyond their control send them down different paths. In 2012, In-ha (Jung Jin-young) is now unhappily married to Baek Hye-jung, one of Yoon-hee's former best friends. He has never gotten over his first love, and when he runs into Yoon-hee (Lee Mi-sook) after so many years, the two reconcile and look forward to making up for lost time.

In-ha's son Seo Joon (Jang Keun-suk) is a photographer, and he bumps into Yoon-hee's daughter Jung Ha-na (Im Yoona) by chance. Unlike her mother, Ha-na is a cheerful and vivacious girl, and though they initially find each other troublesome, even as they argue, they can't help but be drawn to each other. Gradually their feelings develop, and Joon and Ha-na fall in love.

Unaware that that their children are dating each other, In-ha and Yoon-hee announce that they are getting married. As both couples deal with the shock, Joon and Ha-na struggle with sacrificing their love for their parents' long-aborted happiness. As for me this Korean Drama series its very worthy to watch as the directed is one of Korean famous director who had directed Blockbuster Korean Drama series "Autumn in My Heart" in year of 2002. This is one of biggest masterpiece made by Yoon Seok-Ho. You guys have to watch it. It's worth it. ^^
