Korean actor Jang Keun-suk and Girls’ Generation Yoona’s romantic drama be turned into a film in Japan.
The two’s “Love Rain,” which aired in Korea during the first half of last year, will be released as a film in Japanese theaters next month, according to an official with the drama’s production company Yoon’s Color on Friday.
The 20-part drama will undergo re-editing by a Japanese film director to show the highlights and the main parts of the series in a two-part film, according to the official.
The first part is set to be released on September 20 and focus on characters’ past, while the second part is set to be released on October 11 and focus on the present, the official added.
However, the number of theaters in which the movie will be screened has yet to be decided and there are no plans for it to be released in Korea, stated the official.
Set in the seventies and the present day, “Love Rain” centers on a love story over two generations, with Jang Keun-suk and Yoona playing dual roles.

O…wow…I would love to see it…wonder what the director made of it…
eventhough 2 parts is not enough of Sukkie hihihi
In mine opinion it’s not easy to select scenes out of so many and still keep the story strong
I think may be mainly Suk’s scenes will be selected as this may be targeted for eels ^_^
not be easy to choose the scenes, because personally I think that all the scenes in Love rain are very very very good and important.
All scenes were so Rock and awesome!. i love this drama.
I AMO LOVE RAIN !!!
I AMO IM YOONA & JANG KEUN SEOK !!!
Interesting. With so many good scenes i wonder how they will do it.i hope it wont be exclusively shown in japan.
Exactly my thoughts! How the heck are they gonna choose which scenes they’re gonna take out and which are gonna stay. Hahahaha
Anyways, I’m so excited for this. I’m also hoping they’ll release it as DVD, as well.
Go Love Rain! Go JKS!
me too, I’m so excited for this!!! I love Love Rain!.
yes!!! Go LOVE RAIN!!
i loved their chemistry together, this was so special and natural. Real Love!.
many thanks sis Sarah for always sharing such a great news/ article to us… I am very happy with the positive response of almost all the Asian countries regarding this drama. How I wish Korean entertainment Industries as well as Korean viewers will begin to realize its worth… Personally speaking, I am very satisfied with the context of this drama from start to finish that’s why I don’t get some reason why Korean Ratings got so low where as in different countries like our country it was consistently on the top during its airtime slot..
Jessica, I didn’t look at the rating in Korea anymore but more on whether I enjoy the drama or not.. even high rating drama in Korea I drop as no Sukkie in it ! ^_^
hahaha..same here…is that bad? maybe will watch as long is not “mainstream” meaning 13 = 12
Sarah, Thanks for translating and sharing this with us. What a good news. Hopefully his countrymen would realize how this drama made a great impact not only in Japan, in other neighboring Asian countries, in the US and Europe. Hope they will see that this is the only drama recently that would be transformed into a movie.
Watch it sis! It’s gonna be good coz the TV drama version rocks!

LOVE RAIN is very successful globally, Honeslty I do not care about low ratings in Korea because this drama is one of the most wonderful and unique artistic piece in dramas, Love rain is excellent and original drama from around the world, Love Rain is Art. Also, Yoona and Jang keun suk are awesome and amazing actors. of course, they are the most beautiful and envied couple from all over asia.
I think Love Rain is his best drama for jang keun suk.
No offense, but this drama is better than many other popular or commercial dramas (for teenagers).
Love rain would be like “Mozart”: High Artistic quality, something unique, special and perfect.
other dramas would be like “justin bieber”: very commercial for only teenagers, but not always “The commercial” has “The artistic quality”, not always!.
Congratulation, Im Yoona and Jang Keun Suk. they really are the best actors. thank you so much, you inspired me guys! I’m wait for their next drama or movie.
honestly, i’m so excited for this. I miss Love Rain.

Movie version, I can’t wait for the movie!! Zikzin!! Jang keun suk is one of the best actors in asia. I’ve seen almost all of Jang keun suk’s work and “Love Rain” was definitely one of his best work. YoonA is my top female actress-idol, her acting skills are better than many others actresses, also her dedication can be seen clearly on-screen and like Jang keun suk.
Yoona and Jang keun suk are the prettiest couple. they have a perfect chemistry.
Jang keun suk and Yoona also did an amazing job together. Love Rain was so natural and real. i loved this.
Go Love Rain!!!
Good New, I want to watch the version movie, soon. the drama was amazing.
congratulation Im Yoona, Jang Geun Suk and Love Rain.
For Me, All music, acting and characters were well-played. This drama certainly can touch our heart. I have to admit : Love Rain is one of the best dramas of All Asia.
The japaneses are the luckiest people on earth. thanks Japan 😉 japanese are nice people, they have good taste.
Jang keun seok and Im YoonA should’ve made a new version movie of Love Rain in 3D. they are two of the best actors in korea, Brilliant actors!!!
ooooooooo I can t wait to see!
three of the things that I genuinely appreciate about Love Rain in contrast to others korean dramas is that they are so natural and clean acting. also They are the most beautiful Asia couple.
I could feel the love between them ( Im Yoona and Jang Keun Suk). That I had never felt in any others dramas.
ooh, yeah, i am so excited, i need to see this version movie! of course, i loved version drama.
love rain is the best..can’t wait for this film..
