[TV Magnifier] Why did "Love Rain" include gangsters?

2012/05/09 | Permalink | Source

Low rating drama KBS 2TV "Love Rain" rated 5.1% on the 8th.

"Love Rain" was criticized as 'old' from the tenth episode. The only way out for "Love Rain" was the script.

However, it didn't help. Gangsters appeared at the ending scene of the fourteenth episode. A sudden gangster appearance in the background of a green garden, drizzle and clear skies led to the breakdown of "Love Rain".

This was unexpected even by writer Oh Soo-yeon. A member of staff told Sports Hanguk on the 9th, ",It is true everyone felt odd after reading the scripts for the thirteenth and fourteenth episodes. It wasn't Oh Soo-yeon's style and the odd characters (gangsters) were out of place. We messed with them subject at hand to ventilate the viewers' surrounding's a bit".

The frequent kiss scenes in the drama also gave the viewers discomfort.

Another member of staff explained, "There were suggestions that elements of a romantic comedy should be input in the drama recently. But the sudden appearance of love scene between Joon and Ha-na actually caused a counter-effect".

"Love Rain" which has continuously failed to make a hit is being criticized of not being able to 'utilize' Jang Keun-suk and Yoona well enough to meet their reputation for acting.
