Production as an Asian drama: Producers say, “We will cast at least one out of either Song Hye-gyo or Rain”
The KBS drama Full House, which aired in 2004 and earned much love not only in Korea but throughout Asia, will be producing a season 2 as a pan-Asian drama with participation from Korea, China, Japan and other countries. Full House is the drama that shot Rain to fame throughout Asia as a skilled dancer and singer.
Director Park Chang-shik of Kim Jong-hak Productions told Herald Biz on the 24th Oct 2008, “In preparation for making Full House Season 2, writer Jo Jung-hwa has worked for two years. Currently, the scripts for the first four episodes have been completed. Since Korean, Chinese, and Japanese actors will be participating, the drama will be filmed in those countries.”

Getting at least SHK or Rain to resume their roles in the drama? That would be a long shot. If i were them, i would want to move on and not revisit that old role, no matter how popular the drama has become.
What does Rain think of Full House season 2? Is he even interested in doing it?
In a recent interview, when he was asked what he thought of a sequel to Full House, his answer was “I want to leave it (Full House) behind as a sweet memory.”
Although Rain acknowledges the said drama shot him from practically a nobody in Asia to super stardom, he is wise enough not to reprise the role of stubborn Lee Young Jae.
