On the upcoming April 9 episode of KBS’ Love Rain, a new love story will be revealed between Girls’ Generation’s Yoona and Jang, the photographer, now set in 2012. Just like the switch from the analogue to digital age in the drama, the two actors will display a 180 degree transformation for Love Rain,as the characters take on a new role within the drama. Jang, who portrayed the passive Seo In Ha in the past, will now take on the role of Seo Joon, the confidant man who can win over any girl in three seconds. It marks a complete turn-around from the soft-spoken and warm Seo In Ha character Jang portrayed in the 1970s setting and 2012’s Seo Joon, who pays no heed to the attention of others. Seo Joon is described as a temperamental but merit-filled individual.
For his role as Seo Joon, Jang studied and followed the actions and movement of other photographers, showing Jang’s seriousness in his acting.
A member of Love Rain’s production said, “Even the production staff was surprised by Jang’s transformation. We feel the professional Jang Keun Suk, who is similar to the Seo Joon character, will be able to fully display his character’s merits. It will be good to anticipate the new character.”
