The South Korean drama series “Something in the Rain” debuts exclusively on Netflix today in Asia and English-speaking countries.
The show is about the budding relationship between Yoon Jin-ah (played by Son Ye-jin) and her best friend’s younger brother, Seo Joon-hee (Jung Hae-in), who have known each other since childhood.
The story begins with Joon-hee’s reunion with Jin-ah after completing an overseas assignment. Working in the same office building, their feelings for each other grow through different daily encounters – both intentional and unintentional – and their friendship slowly transforms into somewhat different and sweet.
There’s no groundbreaking moment, but both admit they want to be more than just friends.
Directed by An Pan Seok, who worked on other K-drama series such as “Secret Affair”, the show stars Son Ye-jin, who rose to fame in romantic TV series and films such as “The Classic”. Her most recent movie, in which she stars with So Ji-sub, is a remake of the famous Japanese romance “Be With You” and will be released in Thailand on June 23.
Meanwhile rising star Jung Hae-in gained increased recognition for his supporting roles in the 2017 television series “While You Were Sleeping” and a later appearance in “Prison Playbook”.
Netflix members will be able to watch the first four episodes of the series today. Two more episodes will premiere on Netflix every Friday.
