Love Rain had caught my attention before because of the great trailer it has. I loved the first part of the story but hard to say I really don't liked it that much at the 2nd part. The story at first was really heart melting especially if you'll put yourself into the situation of the main characters. The next half of the story was a disappointment for me because it's a really read more long and I think they did the story into circles.

What I love about this drama is the music that it has. The songs were really great and it suited the scenarios in the drama. The actors and actresses also did great but for me I won't try to watch it again.

Love Rain has been on my radar for a while. I’ve been hearing mix reviews about the drama so I was a little hesitant to watch it right after it was finished airing in Korea. A fellow K-Drama addict, who is crazy for Jang Geun Suk insisted that I should see this. I finally gave in and watched it last weekend. The experience was nostalgic. It reminded me the reason why I read more love watching Asian dramas and why I so wanted to learn their language.

One of the reasons why I didn’t immediately watch Love Rain is because of its 1970’s era. The first few episodes are really slow and dragging. Moreover, it’s hard to make viewers appreciate it because the target audiences of K-dramas today are mostly teens and young adult. I even had difficulty connecting with the characters in the 1970’s because I’m not familiar with Korea’s culture during that period. What I appreciate in this era was its cinematography. A lot of the beautiful shots of this drama came from the first 4 episodes. The 2012 plot has the typical formula in K-drama now a days. It was only different because of the family issue they incorporated in the story

I was impressed with how well JGK and YoonA played their two roles. They were able to show the difference in the characters and set it apart. You can easily pin point who’s from who without tracing any similarities in their attitudes or mannerisms in their acting.

I was surprised to know that Im YoonA is a member of Girl’s Generation. It’s no wonder I didn’t know because I’m not a fan of K-Pop groups. I listen to Korean songs and I like several singers and power vocal groups but I’m more into ballad than mainstream pop music. I honestly never thought of her as a singer first before an actress because she acts well. Yes, it was a little cutesy here and there but if the scene requires her to act mature, hurt or whatever serious emotion she has to portray, she delivers it—without frills. Just the right emotion needed in the scene. As I’ve said before, not all singers transitioning to acting ends up good. There are few artists who perform well in both worlds. YoonA is lucky to be one of them.

Love Rain is not for everyone. I understand that many viewers think that the plot didn’t work. I’m giving it 8 as overall score for the reason that I simply enjoyed watching it. I admit that there are parts I didn’t like and some are dragging, but then if I go beyond that and see what it really has to offer, it boils down to one thing—it’s a love story. I’m a simple-minded person but with all the dramas I watched and all the contemporary novels I read, I don’t get touched easily—I had that in Love Rain. I felt the pain, the loss, the love. It touched my heart—and that’s what I watch Korean dramas for.

    I'm just going to pretend it ends within episode 1 and all those frustrating events never took place, because main characters spoke up for themselves.

    Quite polarizing. I found the parent-thread tiring so I fast-forwarded those scenes for a second watch. The young couple is super cute when they are happy. The bad times felt boring, always hearing the same over and over again. The main characters make up for it though :D

    I watched this drama last year. It is one of my favorites. I will watch it again. It is one of those that pops into my mind every now and then. I liked how the two-stories came together. It is so unforgettable!

      If you looked at the genres it's a romance melodrama drama, so it's not surprising there is not mystery or comedy :) It's a love-story.
