Rain considers JTBC’s action romance drama Sketch
It’s been an eventful year for Rain (Come Back, Ajusshi), and it looks like he’s now back in nonstop working mode. Since his last album and drama, he’s gotten married, and recently welcomed the birth of his first child with actress Kim Tae-hee. According to Rain’s management agency, he has received the offer to star in JTBC’s upcoming drama Sketch, but hasn’t confirmed whether he will join.
He’s gearing up for his four-year music comeback since his last project, “Rain Effect,” coming out next month in a mini-album called “My Life Love.” Thus he’s been rather busy, and it’s undecided when he’ll finish reviewing the script for Sketch, which is an action-cop romance drama about people who are fighting to change the futures that have been decided for them. If he confirms, Rain will play the ace investigator in the violent crimes department.
Currently, he’s serving as a mentor in KBS’s The Unit, an idol reboot survival reality show, and he has been in and out of the recording studio for “My Life Love.” It’s a special album package for his dedicated fans, containing the music that allowed Rain to become the superstar he is today. Aww, thank you Rain.
He’s been a sentimental favorite of mine since Full House, but I must admit some of his most recent projects have felt lackluster to me. Especially She’s So Lovable (where he seemed to be only capable of an angry glare) was a disaster on all fronts. Hopefully with his new wife and baby to energize him, we’ll see the cuter, non-stone-faced Rain from years ago.
Sketch is tentatively scheduled to air on JTBC next year in March. If you want to see Rain sooner, his semibiographical film Uhm Bok-dong, about a national bicyclist, finished filming this past year and will be released in the near future.
