Cast & Credits
This drama is the opposite of that. Ugi, the male lead, is afraid of rain. At first it was difficult for me to understand how you can even dislike rain, but his situation was understandable and if I had been through something like that, it would haunt me too.
Most people love rain because even if it's pouring, its sound still soothes you. The same goes for this drama: even if it revolves around two people coping with a beloved one's tragic death, it still manage to soothe your soul.
Land of the Rain may only be one hour long and its characters may not be that talkative, however it is everything but boring. The acting is just right, it's simple while still managing to convey all the right emotions. What amazes me the most is that the music isn't actually made of songs (okay maybe one or two instrumentals...at most) but of water-related sounds and of silence, yet it's actually the perfect "soundtrack". The more I think of it and the more this drama sounds like the embodiment of the rain: it's simple yet so powerful.
So to sum up, Land of Rain will probably not do if you're in want of some action pack movie or an epic love story but if you are looking for someting to calm your soul the way the rain does, well stop wasting your time and go watch it.
