Inside News--Account About Rain

Inside news from staff (not sure staff of where, think it's the hotel)

The staff said that there was a dinner at the ballroom tonight. Bi ate a lot of food, very big appetite.

Bi's English was spoken very well, conversing in English with the staff people around him, and also had a conversation with a Caucasian guy from the conference.

(skipping this next line, because of the Cantonese slang I'm not sure what she's trying to say, but something about Bi borrowing some paper goods from somebody... )

Lastly 'they' said, "Rain is so smart and polite, really very polite, and more polite than the male star who come from Taiwan in October they served before".

Park Jinyoung's reminder: Don't show high expectation on Rain, just let him goes on step-by-step!

Park Jinyoung (JYP), the singer-and-producer recently voiced his opinion, "We should lower our expectation on Rain and don't purposely set the targets which are too high for him to reach."

In his interview with <STAR News>, JYP said, "If everything goes on smoothly for Rain, it may not be a good sign. So hope that everyone can hold their eagerness and don't show high expectation on him. Now it's just a beginning for him, a totally new start."

"Whether it's Rain himself, or the people who care about him should lower their expectation. Don't pressurise himself. From the viewpoint of filming, Rain is indeed a newbie, and it's also a new investment from the aspect of businessman." JYP added.

At this moment, it's a new beginning and shouldn't overstress oneself.

People will make mistakes in their life, for sure. However, the high expectation will definitely pressurize Rain and it may result on negtive impact. It's meaningless to be so nervous about success. Lowering the expectation and work out step-by-step, that's the advice of JYP to Rain.

Lee Zhonghe asked for Rain's autograph


Korean artist Lee Zhonghe (pinyin) had pretended to be drunk so that he could ask for the autograph from Rain!

"I met Rain for the first time through a movie screening. Later, Huang Zhengmin (pinyin) requested me to get him an autograph from Rain. So I asked one in the name of my wife." However, the name written was incorrect. And Lee was hesitated should he request for another autograph again.

Then it happened that they had a chance to dine together and Lee pretended to be drunk in front of Rain.

Thus the MCs were eager to know what happened in the end, but it was disappointed, "Until now I still haven't got the new one."

Star still treasures the wallet from Rain


it’s not an easy task to simply ask the famous Korean singer Byul or “Star” to disclose her private life, but when asked what her most valuable possession was, Byul was quick to answer that it was her wallet that was most dear to her. It was also due to the fact that a famous superstar had bought it for her as a birthday present.

That famous superstar is none other than South Korea’s Rain, or Jung Ji Hoon. The cute pink wallet came as a surprise to her as she never imagined she’d receive such a special gift from her idol. It was three years ago that Byul was asked to be the opening act on Rain’s ‘Rainy Day’ tour in China, with the tour dates just happening to land on her birthday as well. Well aware of Byul’s birthday during his touring, Rain felt bad that she wasn’t able to celebrate it with her family back home, thus, presenting this gift to show his appreciation to her.

Even though she has used this wallet for three years, she has no intention of replacing it just yet. Byul reveals that she wants to use this wallet as long as it can last, even when her friends tease her that her real reasons are otherwise ( meaning she’s still crazed about her special gift since it’s from Rain ^^).

Byul: “ I still look after this wallet with care. Even though I’ve used this wallet for three years, it’s still in great shape. Thinking about the day when Rain gave me this wallet makes me blush with happiness. Whenever people ask, I always tell them that Rain bought this wallet for my birthday ^^ ” .

Byul was even kinder to show her private belongings inside her wallet! The first thing you’ll see when her wallet is open is a cute picture of herself. She says that she likes this picture as she thinks it’s pretty and plus she’s not wearing any makeup. She also showed us her various member cards, business cards, and different currencies she keeps as souvenirs.

Kindly showing us a part of her personal life, Byul cutely says “ I will continue to work hard to save up money to put in this wallet until it can’t be closed. I’ll work my hardest, so please continue to support me. See you and thank you ^^” .

Why would Hollywood be interested in Korean stars?
(2007/12/27)

- Strategic casting to target Asian market based on the popularity of the Korean Wave.
- Jang Dong-gun, Ha Jeong-woo, Song Hye-kyo are the first ones to make their debut in Hollywood as the main casts of American film.

One after another, an increased number of Korean stars, including Jang Dong-gun, Rain, Lee Byeong-Heon, Jeon Ji-hyeon, Park Joon-hyung and Song Hye-kyo, had been cast in American films.

But, why would Hollywood be interested in Korean stars?

According to the analysis produced by the Film Promotion Committee, the average annual film marketing growth in America from 2000 to 2005 had been around 31,6 billion dollars. Comparing it against England (2nd – 5,2 billion) and Japan (3rd – 4,6 billion), the American market is approximately 6 time larger, the biggest market in the world. In particular, the film industry had been dramatically advanced and countless American actors are being already appearing in their films. Therefore there's seems no suitable reason to cast Korean actors who virtually has no recognition in America.

However, in the process of producing the film, the American film producers and the major studios makes careful strategy to target the international market. From 2000 to 2005, among the world's top 10 film markets, the only countries whose share of native films had been more than 50% of their overall film industry had been South Korea (9th) and India (10th) (Excluding China who has restriction on importing foreign films). Then it was followed by Japan (41.3%), France (35.6%), England (17.5%) and Italy (24.7%), showing the powerful influence of Hollywood films over majority of global film industry. Especially, at recent times, the Hollywood producers became more interested in the Asian market, which is at the stage of rapid growth.

A well-known Japanese casting director, Yoko Narahashi, who works actively in American film industry explained, "Recently, the demand of Asian actors had been dramatically increased in Hollywood. More and more Asian actors are getting into roles that would have been given to Caucasian actors in the past. Therefore, now is the best time for the Asian actors to come to Hollywood", at the Busan International Film Festival, last October.

In order ensure its influence over the international market, the Hollywood producers use the two main strategies of either casting Asian or Caucasian movie star or film the movie at the local ground. Examples of these strategic casting include the 'Mission Impossible' series, which are filmed over various countries including China and other European countries; the casting of actors such as Gong Li (Miami Vice), Zhang Ziyi (Rush Hour 2) and Don Juan Moreno y Jederique Jimenez (Da Vinci Code).

The first group of Asian actors to debut in Hollywood were from Japan during 1970s, followed by Chinese actors of 1980s and 1990s. Lately, this trend is moving towards the Korean actors as the Korean Wave sweeping through every parts of Asia.

A Korean actor in Hollywood, John Cho, who starred in a film called "West 32nd" said, "In fact, the Hollywood producers prefer a popular Asian stars who don't speak good English over an Asian actor of American origin who can speak perfect English".

Due to limitation of language and the strategic casting to target the Asian market, the Hollywood producers had been purposely casting the Asian stars for large-scaled action movies. Examples include Rain ("Speed Racer") and Lee Byeong-Heon ("G.I. Joe"). However, there aren't many who overcome this casting strategy and are recognised as real actors in Hollywood. Out of all the Korean actors, Rain made the most splendid debut in Hollywood in his upcoming movie, 'Speed Racer' with its 300 million dollar worth of production cost and being directed by the Wachowski brothers. However, one can't see any special meaning in it, other than Rain being cast as a supporting actor in a Hollywood film in behalf of all other Asian stars.

Yoo Duk-hwa (Andy Lau), who had an interview with the My Daily Telegraph last year said, "Hollywood doesn't pay sincere attitude toward Hong Kong actors" revealing his reason for not entering Hollywood. Likewise, Jackie Chan also showed his disappointment in his interview with the My Daily Telegraph in 2005, saying "I had continuous call from Hollywood, but the only genre given to me was comic action". Even China's greatest star, Jet Li, had to play villain in "Lethal Weapon" in order to make his debut in Hollywood. On the same line, Hong Kong's Chow Yun-Fat's American debut film was "The Replacement Killer", where the number of gun shooting scenes was overwhelmingly greater than the scenes where he speaks his lines.

However, Jang Dong-gun, Ha Jeong-woo and Song Hye-kyo took different ways in making their debut. The large-scaled action film, 'Laundry worrier' is targeting the international market and Jang Dong-gun is cast as the main character, exactly opposite to the pathway taken by previous Asian stars in Hollywood. Even though the motive is based on the producer's consideration towards to the Asian market, Jang Dong-gun is to be challenge the international stage as the main cast of the film.

Ha Jeong-woo's independent film, "Never Forever" evoked a great interest in the America's biggest Independent film festival, Sundance Film Festival. Recently, he had been receiving casting offers from various American producers. In addition, he is a member of American Actors Association.

Lastly, Song Hye-kyo is making her Hollywood debut with a low-budget independent film, "Fetish". She could have sign a contract with the major agency and use strategic casting to star in a large-scaled Hollywood film targeting the Asian market. However, she chose to challenge Hollywood by star in an independent film, refusing to follow the footpaths of previous Asian stars.

Rain Sweeping Across Billboard & Box Office Simultaneously



Top star singer and actor Rain receives affirmation from the world.

Rain, who will be sneaking into the US movie box office market through Hollywood's work <Speed Racer> by 2008, will be distributing his global record with a brand-new image; rolling up the Billboard charts to the number 1 ranking, thus proving the worth of his reputation as a world-class star.

Playing an Asian-American named "Taejo Togokhan" in <Speed Racer>, Rain is stepping up with his fluency in English and his steady acting skills, giving himself a favorable impression and receiving high praises from the American audience.

Rain specifically aimed at the Asian region to launch promotional activities by using this movie <Speed Racer> as something that will be widely known by its people; as he is evaluated and designated as the Asian star most wanted by Hollywood producers. As Rain is successful in his first step into the US market, his status as a singer has also received extreme attention.

As he works his way up into the first ranking on the Billboard charts with his global record release, Rain's special edition during this time has been set as the union between every kind of pop music between the East and the West. Therefore Rain's music record activities in the US will attract much attention. With this, at the year end of 2007, Rain mentioned that "next year I hope to bring everyone astonishing news". Not only has Rain adhered to the promise he has made to his fans, he has also made a more definite development in his direction of being a world star.

Rain worked volunteer in Taeon, South Korea (Rain’s portion only on Jan 16th news)

Rain worked as oil spill clean-up volunteer worker in Taeon, South Korea
Taeon district said “Feel the beauty of life from a quiet image”

Singer/artist, Rain, real name Ji Hoon Jeong: Worked quietly as a volunteer to clean up the worst oil in Taeon, South Korea in cold weather.

One of Taeon oil spill clean-up volunteer worker said Rain worked hard as volunteer to clean up the worst oil under the cold weather on Jan 16th.

On Jan 16th, around 10:30 am, the weather was extremely cold especially in the morning, the skin seems like cracked in such low temperature. Rain insisted to clean up the worst oil although the sea water was freezing cold. Rain’s father occasionally visited Taeon and he came with 20 workers on this day.

Per J. Tune, they really want to do something for Taeon. Then, Rain motivated all staffs from his company to clean up the worst oil together.

Taeon rescue team officer responded in the phone interview,
“Mr. Ji Hoon Jeong was working so hard. He even motivated his staffs to clean up the worst oil together. As an actor and artist, he shows his power. Ji Hoon believed something needs to be done for Taeon; he worked sincerely and did not catch anybody’s attention. He insisted to finish his work. It shows his real personality in this case”

Per this rescue team officer, some press reporters found Rain when he took off his hat during rest time. After a while, those reporters walked close to him. However, Rain did not pay attention to them and continued to do the clean-up job quietly.

Rescue team officer said, “Mr. Ji Hoon Jeong neither say anything nor look at anybody, he just worked quietly.”

….Rain finished the post-production of movie “Speed Racer”. He just came back Seoul on the 14th. Originally, he wanted to plan to take a short break. He went back his office on the 15th, then he worked as oil spill clean-up volunteer worker in Taeon on the 16th…..Rain is planning to go back USA 10 days later, scheduled the details for his new Hollywood movie…The primarily shooting schedule for new movie is around on March and April…

Rain agrees to perform only after a paycheck, Wednesday January 23, 2008 Korea


After signing with Lotte Duty Free as their spokesperson for the next year, the dancing magician aka Rain agreed to perform at the “2008 Lotte DFS Family Concert.” The concert celebrates “2008 Hallyu Tourism Exchange” and other artists, such as Lee Seung Hwan, Yangpa and renowned pianist Isao Sasaki will also perform with Pinky.

It seems like Rain is sticking to “perform after payment” strategy after his concert fiasco last year, which is surprisingly, very smart. Instead of creating new music and taking risks, he’s recycling his old songs to make some dough.

You can check out the “2008 Lotte DFS Family Concert” at Busan BEXCO Center on February 16th.

Rain asked help from fans, Monday March 17, 2008 Korea




Rain has asked his fans, through J Tune Entertainment’s homepage, to help him find photographs of him that are illegally distributed.

The Korea singer had a world tour in 2007 and before his concert in Thailand, he signed a contract with MAMA, a Thai company, to allow it to use his picture for the packaging of it cup noodles. Under the terms of this contract, the cup noodles with Rain’s picture on it can only be sold within a given period but unfortunately, that term was not followed and is still on sale up to this day. Pictures of the cup noodles can actually be found in the Internet.

Because of this, Rain requested his Korean and overseas fans to help him fight against his pictures being used illegally.

The online poll for Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influence People 2008 is out and as expected, the Clouds have mobilized to get Rain on the list again. Due to the supreme organization of the Clouds, Rain is in the lead with almost 80,000 votes.

According to Warner Brothers Korea, Rain starts his promotional tour in Korea on the 20th, then Hong Kong on the 23rd and onto Los Angeles, California, where he will join producer Joel Silver, actors Emile Hirsch and Matthew Fox for the premiere. Rain is also scheduled for a Japan appearance in June.

"Hollywood actors are promoting the movie on various talk shows [in the United States] but in Asia, no one is as popular as Rain so we are expecting a great response from his promotions of the film here," announced a representative of Warner Brothers.

At 300 million dollars (USD) for its production and 80 million in marketing costs, "Speed Racer" is a hefty blockbuster about the best racers around the world battling in cars equipped with cutting-edge technology.
