Teaser of "A Love To Kill" starring Rain creates stir

2005/10/21 | Permalink | Source

The new KBS Monday-Tuesday series "A Love to Kill", written by Lee Kyeong-hee and produced by Kim Kyoo-tae, has already drawn significant attention from viewers ahead of its premiere on Oct. 31. The series' leading actor, Rain (real name Chung Ji-hoon), said that viewers would be surprised when they see the pilot episode of the drama, and it seems he is absolutely correct.

Immediately after the teaser of "A Love to Kill" aired on Oct. 20 prior to the Wednesday-Thursday series "My Rosy Life", the drama's Web site bulletin board was flooded with messages. It was the second teaser for the new series so far, with the first one airing on Oct. 13.

The 38-second-long teaser caught viewers' eyes by featuring a bruised Rain, who plays a K-1 fighter in the drama, against the backdrop of a cloudy sky in the heart of a city, and his co-star Shin Min-ah against a clear blue sky at the seashore. The teaser was produced in the form of a wide aspect movie-like screen. The final scene of the teaser showing Rain shedding tears seemed to particularly impress fans.

More than 1,600 messages have been posted on the series' Web site as of Oct. 21. One viewer wrote, "I finally saw the teaser today, and now I really look forward to seeing this drama". Another viewer wrote, "It looks even more impressive and sad on the screen".

Viewers are placing high expectations on Rain as the series' leading actor. One viewer wrote, "Now I can watch Rain on TV as much as I want".

"The sad look in his eyes arouses so much compassion. Rain must be very busy these days preparing for his concert in China and filming a drama. I will pray for his well-being so that he can fully show off his acting skills", wrote another viewer.

"A Love to Kill", in which Rain plays the K-1 fighter and bodyguard "Kang Bok-ku" opposite Sin, who portrays a star actor named "Cha Eun-seok", will premiere Oct. 31, replacing the series "Wedding".
