Son Ye-jin “is a one-of-a-kind actress”, states Ahn Pan-seok in an interview with Ilgan Sports and translated into lớn English by Soompi, and continues: “She has a positive energy. In order to lớn capture the viewers’ attention, an actor’s presence alone needs lớn be powerful, & she is an actress who has that kind of power. She is been able lớn bring to life every production in which she has appeared. <…> That’s why, from the very beginning, I thought that there was no one else for the leading role of ‘Pretty Noona’ but Son Ye-jin. I only contact one person và it worked out.”

For Jung Hae-in, Ahn states in the same interview: “I casted him after watching three clips . His acting was so good. I could only see his acting và not his face.

“I was surfing the mạng internet one day when I came across the phrase ‘Noona who buys me food,"” explains Ahn at the press conference for the drama — as Romantic tv reveals– & continues: “It was from an interview about a very famous star couple that got married after using that phrase. I though it was really witty.” In fact, this is what Song Hye-kyo said in an interview with W Korea magazine’s March 2017 issue, when talking about her Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Joong-ki và another good friover, Yoo Ah-in, prior khổng lồ her engagement with Song, who’s now her husbvà.



Something in the Rain brought two things that made it stand out for me: The silences. The long sequences where people and things and footsteps, embraces, and gazes could just be; without words, và sometimes even without music.

These silences were embedded in an unprecedented geographical coherence. The bus stop before the apartment is really the bus stop before the apartment. The river at which father và daughter have a heart khổng lồ heart talk is also really only a short walk away from their apartment. The subway station, bus stop và restaurants are really next to lớn the company they work at.

In short: the landscape shown in Something in the Rain is as cthảm bại as it can get to the actual landscape of a real person who’d be living in Seongphái nam, working in Sangam and has two favorite neighborhoods khổng lồ hang out at: Hongdae & Cheongunhyoja. — Marion KDL
