Uehara Takako romances Rain in Runaway

To correspond with its foreign locales, KBS’s Runaway is also bringing onboard some name foreign actors, such as Japanese singer Uehara Takako, who will have a romantic loveline with Rain. She’ll play a top singer named Kieko who shares a “sad love” with his character.

In the ’90s, Uehara was a member of girl group Speed while she was just a young teen; the group disbanded in 2000 when she was 17, after which she went solo. Among other things, she appeared in the Japanese drama Koi no kara Sawagi (Much Ado About Love) Drama Special, which also featured Ryu Shi-won (Style).

Meanwhile, another well-known Japanese actor has been cast to play her father, a powerful figure in the yakuza underworld: Takenaka Naoto, whose projects include Tokyo Tower and Nodame Cantabile.

The drama, which airs in late September, has been beefing up its ranks with a solid cast that includes the likes of Lee Na-young, Lee Jung-jin, Daniel Henney, Yoon Jin-seo, Sung Dong-il, Jo Hee-bong, and Gong Hyung-jin. Let’s hope its story can keep up.

Actually, Speed got back together a couple years ago. They've got a couple singles out and have been touring a bit.

Although I'm still not interested in Rain, anything with Lee Na Young gets my attention immediately. The addition of others, including the Japanese folk who I am more fmiliar with, is just bonus. :)

i have a few Uehara Takako songs that I listen to....the way i imagined her is different from how she looks like in real life...i imagine her to be bubbly, short and cute, but she looks older and more mature.

and wow the cast is getting larger and more high profile. I hope it won't end up like East of Eden.

@ 6 Cam

I'm glad though that only two episodes air per week. It's such a mistake to watch a completed kdrama because no matter how many times I end up saying I'll only watch one or two episodes, I end up watching like ten and get no sleep. X_X

I wonder how they'll manage the language factor. Will she have lines in Korean or will he speak in Japanese? I'll watch anything with Rain in it.

With so much star power and international interest, I think this is going to be fantastic....or a massive train wreck. I'm holding my breath.

I am so hoping that the writers will go unconventional this time and have THIS girl end up with Bi Rain's character instead of Lee Na Young's character...

I was thinking this girl used to be Jin Akanishi's (of the boyband Kat-tun) girlfriend from way back. Am I right? She grew up, matured.

^ yup, she is Jin's ex girlfriend, very cute couple. I agree with all comments, she is very pretty and I'm still waiting that Rain ends with Takako, it could be really unconventional.

Takenaka Naoto ... i love him. such a great actor and so freaking hilarious in some of his dramas and movies. i'd love to watch him in this drama but then the drama will be really disjointed for me since i'd be skipping the part with Rain!

This is korean drama at its " best", getting ahead of itself by bringing too many actors/actresses into the mix.

I haven't seen anything with Lee Na-young in it ( saw 2 eps of Ireland but couldn't continue) but the Rain-mad girl in me will watch anything he does

It's garnering its fair share of detractors because of its cast but let's watch, then judge

Can't wait for it to premiere!

I'm not going to be able to take Takenaka Naoto seriously as a yakuza boss. I mean nearly every single thing I've seen him in has had him being a total idiot. This is going to be hilarious!
