With Rain’s new drama Fugitive to be released this week the actor gave his thoughts on his character as well as the amount of action scenes he had to go through most which involved lots of running. Something that was no surprise in the drama is that a short video was released today for the OST that included a song by none other than MBLAQ!
Fugitive is a romantic comedy investigative action series about a conspiracy involving a hefty sum of money going missing in times of the Korean War 60 years ago, Rain plays Gee-woo, a private detective at an international secret agency who becomes pegged as the murderer of his own old friend.
When talking about his character Rain said “I’m a character who you weren’t able to see in other movies or TV dramas. When I first decided to take on this production, I talked with scriptwriter Chun. The character is someone whose progress consistently orients around a woman he likes. I’m having fun filming it. I hope you enjoy it too.”
Then adding, “I watched the drama ‘Chuno’ religiously. Not because of the storyline or the beautiful scenes, but because Lee Hyuk hyung did so well.. But the scenes were beautiful. I really wanted to film a production like ‘Chuno’. Director Kwak Jung Hwan, scriptwriter Chun Sung Il and me, us three got to meet up. We had a mutual understanding and decided to work hard together.”
When speaking about the action involved Rain added “Lee Jung-jin and my relationship is that of a chaser and the chased so we really ran a lot… I’ve done a lifetime’s worth of running,” the singer and actor told media outlets during a press conference for the drama held in Seoul on Monday.
He explained, however, that the action sequences were “not too tough to handle” compared having received a year’s worth of grueling training in Hollywood for Wachowski Brothers’ pic “Ninja Assassin” last year which had left him with zero percent body fat.
