Love Rain was so hyped for several months.
How could you not want to see it ? Love Rain has super popular SNSD’ Yoona and Asian prince Jang Geun Suk take the lead, plus PD Yoon Suk Ho (Autumn Tale & Winter Sonata) helmet the drama.
The drama also teased us with numerous beautiful photo stills.
But still, Korean audience doesn’t get it.
The 3 first episodes of Love Rain was beaten hard by its rival (SBS’ Fashion King & MBC’ Lights and Shadows) and the rating was disastrous.
Based from AGB Nielsen, Love Rain’s first episode got 5.8 %, second episode 5.2% and the third fell into 4.4%.
It was a total humiliating result for KBS and Love Rain’s team.
But, it’s not the end of the world and Love Rain is still in high spirit.
The people from Love Rain’s production team said ‘Actually, we’re embarrassed with the unexpected low rating. But Love Rain has beautiful images, the beauty of slowness and the warm story unlike other dramas. Although PD Yoon Suk Ho disappointed with the current result but we believe there’s some good news pretty soon’.
He continued ‘ The first 4 episodes tells story from 1970′s and after that will jump to modern era. Yoona and Jang Geun Suk’s character will change and story becomes interesting. In addition, mid-age love story between Jung Jin Young and Lee Mi Sook will give different color for the fans’ .
Hopefully their hope comes true !
