Korean star Rain could be starring in his first TV drama in 2 years
He’s in talks to appear in the series Ghost Doctor, scheduled to air in the second half of 2021.
It’s been two years since OG K-pop celebrity Rain starred in a television series and it appears that dry spell is coming to an end.
A representative from Sublime Artist Agency confirmed on Friday (Feb 8) that the 38-year-old singer-actor is in talks to appear in a TV drama and things are looking “favourable”, as reported by Soompi.
The show in question is Ghost Doctor, which will mix medical drama with, um, ghosts. Boo Sung-chul, who is known for hit TV shows Heirs and Jang Ok Jung, Lives In Love, will be the producing director, with Kim Eun-hee (Live Up To Your Name) writing the script.
Once Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, firms up the deal, it will be his first starring role in a TV series since 2019’s Welcome 2 Life.
He’s appeared in many other hits throughout his long career, including Full House in 2004, A Love To Kill in 2005 and My Lovely Girl in 2014.
Ghost Doctor, which is a literal translation, is scheduled to air in the second half of this year.
