[NEWS] ‘Love Rain’ stands still

Posted: 25 Apr 2012 07:05 AM PDT


KBS2 TV drama "Love Rain" continues with its snail pace.

According to AGB Nielsen Media Research on April 25th, "Love Rain" aired on the 24th, rated 5.6%. This is 0.4% higher than the previous episode.

However this drama is on a standstill mode and has the lowest viewing percentage compared to other dramas. SBS "Fashion King" and MBC "Lights and Shadows" rated 9.4% and 23.6%.

"Love Rain" is significantly far from "Lights and Shadows" and the gap with "Fashion King" is also widening. Unlike viewers' expectations, it was rated as cliché since the very start and even though the scene of the drama has changed in generations, it still doesn't attract any attention.

While Jang Geun Suk (Seo Joon) and YoonA's (Jeong Ha Na) love mode has become official, many wonder if the viewing rate will turn direction and go up again.

Actress Ha Ji Won will demonstrate force like the true action queen she is.

On the 12th episode of the MBC drama "The King 2Hearts" that is to be aired on the April 26th, Ha Ji Won will demonstrate bold leg kicks and rappelling along with other forms of actions.

Having displayed more feminine and graceful images lately as the fiancé of the prince rather than a Special Forces sergeant, Ha Ji Won will return as a warrior once again with a parade of action movements starting on the 12th episode.

Ha Ji Won suppresses a North Korean female official with a straightforward kick, lightly lands on the roof of a merry-go-round and rappels down from the air, all very gently and quick.

In the shoot that took place in a playground on the 14th, Ha Ji Won endured 8 hours of shooting for the rappelling down from the merry-go-round to the ground. While practicing small moves on the ground, Ha Ji Won didn't seem scared or afraid at all and managed to pull off what would've been a challenge for men as well.

Kim Jong Hak Production claims, "Ha Ji Won is excellently performing difficult actions scenes. Not only that, she is managing to portray the various expressions and emotions of Kim Hang Ah with merits."
