YoonA paired with Jang Geun-suk

20 Sep – SNSD's YoonA has been confirmed to play a leading role alongside actor Jang Geun-suk in the anticipated new drama, "Love Rain".

According to dkpopnews website quoting the production team: "It took a long time to find the right actress – someone in their early twenties with a 'pure' image. YoonA has proven her acting chops in 'You Are My Destiny' and 'Cinderella Man' and the team has high hopes."

"Love Rain" is a love story between a man and woman who meet in college in the 1970s. It is a fantasy melodrama with both Jang Geun-suk and YoonA playing dual roles. It is said to be highly anticipated by drama fans as it reunites director Yoon Seok-ho and writer Oh Soo-yeon of "Autumn in My Heart" and "Winter Sonata" for the first time in 10 years.

YoonA commented: "It's an honour and a dream come true to be able to work with Yoon Seok-ho. His earlier dramas 'Autumn in My Heart' and 'Winter Sonata' touched me. It'll be my first drama in a while, so I will do my best to meet everyone's expectations."

Asked to comment about the singer, Yoon Seok-ho praised YoonA by saying: "I'm confident that YoonA's fresh and innocent beauty will make the love story shine even brighter."

    2015 Dodge Charger goes under the knife

Thanks to the original stoutness of the Mercedes-assisted chassis, and the periodic updates that keep them from seeming like 21st-century versions of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger combo still draw in fans. Today, Dodge revealed yet another redesign for the 2015 Charger — and for an old car, it's quite the change.

    2015 Nissan Murano aims for the style-forward crowd

    Nissan says its 2015 Murano crossover, only the second major revamp of the car since it debuted in 2003, draws its design cues from the “age of future space flight.” That’s probably taking it a little far, but the new Murano, based off the 2013 Resonance concept vehicle, is an exceptionally lovely machine, all fluid, curved metal on the outside, and flowing, soft-touch materials on the inside. Certain kinds of comfort and charms that were unheard-of outside of premium vehicles five years ago have definitely trickled down, and reached a kind of design apotheosis with this car.
