Rain and Lee Dong Gun opened up about reuniting through a drama for the first time in 15 years.

JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama “Sketch” held a press release on May 24 that was attended by producing director (PD) Im Tae Woo, Rain, Lee Dong Gun, Lee Sun Bin, and Jung Jin Young.

On this day, Rain and Lee Dong Gun were asked what it was like to be working together again. The two had appeared in the 2003 KBS drama “Sang Doo, Let’s Go to School!” and now they’ve reunited through “Sketch.”

Rain stated, “What’s extra special about this drama is that Lee Dong Gun and I are working together again for the first time in 15 years. I feel comfortable, like I’ve come home. Though filming can be tiring at times, I’m having fun and I’m happy.” Lee Dong Gun reciprocated the sentiments as he shared, “It was a drama that I really wanted to do as soon as I received the script. I feel a lot of pride from the work that Rain and I get to do together through this drama.”

PD Im Tae Woo also revealed why he decided to cast Rain and Lee Dong Gun in their respective roles. He explained, “Rain is an actor who can pull off an air of naivety that is necessary for his character. The role also requires a lot of action scenes, and Rain is someone you can rely on when it comes to action.” Calling Lee Dong Gun’s casting a gamble, Im Tae Woo stated, “He has the appearance of young nobility, so I wondered whether he would be the right fit for the role. But I needn’t have worried as he’s been doing so well.”

“Sketch” will an investigative action drama that follows the story of an ace detective teaming up with a female detective who is able to draw out what will happen 72 hours in the future. The drama will premiere on May 25 at 11 p.m. KST.
