Jang Geun-suk and Im Yoon-a’s Romantic Moments in ‘Love Rain’
Love Rain (사랑비) is a drama that tells the story of two lovers, starring Jang Geun-suk and Im Yoon-a. It has 20 episodes in total and started airing on March 26, 2012, ending on May 29, 2012. Love Rain (사랑비) was directed by Yoon Seok-ho and was filmed in two different countries, South Korea and Hokkaido, Japan.
Love Rain is the story of Seo In-ha (played by Jang Geun-suk) and Kim Yoon-hee (played by Im Yoon-a) in the 1970s. They were Korean university students living in Daegu, Korea, who were attending the same university. In-ha loved Yoon-hee at first sight. He conveyed his feelings to Yoon-hee and it turned out that she also liked Inha’s love affair.
The relationship between Seo In-ha and Yoon-hee had to face its end since Yoon-hee knew her boyfriend had found her lost diary. Yoon-hee thought she could understand every single thing about herself by reading her diary.
Although Seo In-ha tried to apologize for his mistakes, but their relationship has come to an end. Finally, Kim Yoon-hee and her grandmother returned to the U.S. to treat the grandmother’s tuberculosis. On the other hand, Seo In-ha had enlisted to the military. They didn’t belong together and ended up marrying different people and having children. Their feelings were made for each other, however, and neither of them could forget their first love.
The story continued in 2012. This time, the children of Seo In-ha (was still played by Jang Geun-suk), Kim Yeon-hee (was still played by Im Yoon-a) and Lee Dong-wook (played by Kim Shi-hoo) are reunited without knowing the history of their parents’ relationship in the past.
One day, Seo In-ha’s son, named Seo-joon, accidentally bumped into Kim Yeon-hee’s daughter, named Jung Ha-na, at the train station in Hokkaido, Japan. Seo-joon is a photographer that was known as a playboy who worked in Hokkaido and Jung Ha-na is a college student living in the city, who will return to her hometown in South Korea.
