Jang Keun Suk + Yoona, Hallyu Couple for ′Love Rain′
KBS2’s Love Rain hasn′t even started in Korea and it′s already been sold to Japan - and at the highest price ever in the domestic industry, at that!
Makes sense, since the drama′s been making issues all around Asia due to its two leads - Girls′ Generation′s Yoona and hallyu prince Jang Keun Suk.
According to the drama′s production company, the drama was preparing to be sold since its planning stages, and the company recently sealed the deal with Japan′s Pony Canyon at a record high price.
Meanwhile, Love Rain features a love story that spans from the 1970s till the present. Producer Yun Seok Ho, who helmed Winter Sonata and Autumn in My Heart, arguably the catalyst dramas of the Korean Wave, is directing.
The drama, which began filming in September, will air in the first half of 2012 after completing production.
