Well, it looks like the proverbial “star” of one of our favourite Soshi ladies, Yoona, is certainly on the rise here :D. Why do I say that ? Well, Yoona’s latest KBS drama project “Love Rain”, in which she plays the role of 2 major characters, has recently been picked to be showcased at MIPTV 2012, to be held at Cannes, France, from the 1st to the 4th of April 2012.
This international event, organized by Reed MIDEM, is a recognized platform for financing, co-producing, buying and selling entertainment content across the world.
According to the event website, the synopsis of “Love Rain” states that this drama “tells of two kinds of loves—the pure love between two college students in 1970’s and the trendy love between the son and daughter of those students in the present day. Jang Geun-suk, a rising star in Asia and Yoona, a member of ‘Girls Generation’ who is winning popularity in Europe and America as well as Asia, have been cast as the main characters.”
KBS has already ear-marked “Love Rain” to be a Hallyu drama for the international entertainment market. At present, “Love Rain” has generated considerable interest in Japan, a real feat in itself.
According to market insiders at the above-mentioned event, this TV drama has 3 important things going for it: Director Yoon Sukho, Jang Geunsuk, and Girls’ Generation.
Well, it looks like our favourite 9 ladies are set to make another major impact in the worldwide entertainment arena, albeit in this case, by the proxy representation of only 1 member of the group, Yoona :).
Be that as it may, all I can say is: Yoona Jjang ! Yoona Daebak ! Yoona Hwaiting !
