Shattering of Men’s Fantasy “The Betrayal of Kim Tae Hee”
Many men feel inferior in front of singer and actor Jung Jihoon (Rain): he is tall and handsome. He dances well, sings well, and acts well. He has a great body and he has a lot of money. Just as many women are mesmerized under his charisma, these men try their best to look for his shortcomings. Somehow they can’t give thoughtful consideration, but will only find fault on things.
They criticize Rain and others by leaving remarks in forums. It could be trivial, like when Rain had a supporting role in Speed Racer, these people who assumed as having excellent command of English, criticized that Rain had overdone his pronunciation. It could be more serious when they criticized an actress’ acting skills as suspicious of pro Japanese.
The news about Rain and Kim Tae Hee falling in love ended up in Rain having violated army regulations. The issue was soon out of control. I believe this is related to the deep rooted jealousy these people have against Rain. The “all capable” Rain, with his beret off, was able to enjoy love, at a time when it means cutting off from love relationships when an ordinary man goes to army, with the actress that all men in Korea admires. They feel that Rain is having the best military life in the world, they feel that Rain has too much. Thus they are not able to see any beauty in it. And they totally forgot Rain’s difficult adolescence and the painful effort he had made to get to his current position.
The affair is also a fatal blow to Kim Tae Hee’s image to them. Honestly, there are other beautiful actresses in Korea, but Kim has a strong “premium”. She is a graduate of Seoul University. Thus she has a superb position between a “celebrity” and a “civilian”. Men admire her beauty and her cleverness. They are curious to know what kind of man she will meet and what kind of love she will have. Many men, blind to their own limitations, believe they can get her love. They even criticize the actors she worked with. But now Kim has given her heart to the 2 year younger, handsome and sexy Rain. These people feel being dumped, being betrayed.
Because Korean men have such feelings or fantasies towards Rain and Kim Tae Hee, once they are erupted, these people are not able to think logically and reasonably. They get crazy with celebrities or turn their backs to them with such absurd feelings. Rain meets his “Busan Woman”, and was labelled a “Bad Guy”. Surely he can find a way to “Avoid the Sun”.
