Rain comes back to dramaland with She’s So Lovable
It’s official, Rain is coming back to dramaland with a new series titled She’s So Lovable to air on SBS. The title literally translates to “The woman who’s so lovable to me,” which is an awkward name that is just a touch less awkward than the Song Poh You it used to be (fine, it was Song For You).
I expect this drama to be visually gorgeous, coming from the writer-director pair who brought us Doctor Champ and Scent of a Woman—although dramaland as a whole has been looking a whole lot more glossy as of late, so perhaps the show won’t be such a stark contrast to the rest of the offerings this time.
She’s So Lovable is described as a “sentimental and romantic love fantasy” that takes place in the pop music world, where a group of young men and women harboring all sorts of pain find solace in music. Rain is set to play a songwriter-producer who is also the president of an agency, who still can’t shake the loss of his bygone love.
The drama purports to show a vivid depiction of the music industry, and based on the description (and from watching both Champ and Scent) it sounds like we’re looking at an introspective, hopefully sweet and romantic style of drama. And, with Rain cast as a master producer, hopefully lots of meta jokes and references to his own pop-star identity. ‘Cause what’s the point of casting former idols to cultivate fictional idols if you can’t make fun of the whole world of idol meta?
She’s So Lovable will follow It’s Okay, It’s Love on Wednesdays and Thursdays, premiering September 17.
