J. Tune Entertainment has released the album jacket pictures for Rain’s upcoming 5th Album “Rainism” plus his comeback schedule today.

They revealed that MBC will be broadcasting a special called “Myself, Rain, Dance” on the 17th which will kickstart his album promotions. That special program will be showing footage from a closed-door showcase for 1000 lucky fans that will be recorded on the 9th at MBC Dream Center.

But before all that happens, MBC will first air a special documentary about Rain called “Rain’s Coming” this week which will be focusing on his personal life, etc. This also means that MBC is breaking from norm for Rain’s comeback by broadcasting two special programs for Rain in consecutive weeks.

Rain’s 2nd “Love Story” teaser will be released on 8th October.

Posted in Ha Ji Won, Rain with tags , , on October 3, 2008 by koala41

Rain has finally revealed something from his upcoming 5th album expected to be released in October after an absence of 2 years since his last. After all the hair mess that Rain has had in the past months, he has finally come good with his latest hairdo. Ha Ji Won looks as stunning as ever, A-lister indeed!

According to J. Tune Entertainment, “The teaser video and related media for his 5th album titled ‘Love Story’ will be released through Mnet.com on 2nd October (tomorrow).” So we get a sneak peek of Rain and Ha Ji Won looking at each other one day before the teaser release in different frames.

The music video between Rain and Ha Ji Won was shot at Apgujeong’s Rodeo Drive and an unidentified club in Kangnam, Seoul. The sudden appearance of the two caused a big commotion and attracted a sizeable crowd.

The plot of the mv is about a bad man’s love story with Ha Ji Won playing his love interest. “Rain has worked really hard during this period to show his new album concept through this mv which will be like a mini movie in itself. We have prepared for this for quite a long time,” explained J. Tune Entertainment.

Ha Ji-won in “My Love By My Side”

Posted in Entertainment News, Ha Ji Won, Korean Movie, Kwon Sang Woo with tags , , on September 23, 2008 by koala41

Time for Kwon Sang-woo to share a bit of the spotlight: He’s been cast alongside Ha Ji-won in the new movie My Love By My Side [내 사랑 내 곁에], to be directed by Park Jin-pyo (You’re My Sunshine, Voice of a Murder).

The film is described as a melodramatic romance centering around a man who suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease and the self-sacrificing woman who loves him. Kwon’s character suffers from the incurable illness as his body gradually becomes more and more paralyzed, but maintains his sense of humor and his dignity.

Ha Ji-won plays a cheerful and upbeat funeral director, and because of the frequency with which she encounters death, she doesn’t think of disease as the grave and dire thing that people typically see it as being.

The movie will be released sometime next year, and on the downside, I’m a bit sick of Kwon Sang-woo too, and terminal-illness melodramas are never my bag. On the upside, it’s always great to see Ha Ji-won in action.
