[ETA]: Rain’s bio has been updated, he’s attending the award show, & everybody please remember to VOTE! THANKS!
Hello lovely Clouds,
Just wanted to give you an update edit to let you know two things: Rain’s bio has been updated and it’s time to hit the voting HARD. We’ve only got a week before the awards show is here.
It is our understanding that Rain has been invited to attend the awards show and that he will be heading to L.A. on June 3rd. We are so excited that we are going to be able to catch a glimpse of him on our own televisions that we can’t stand ourselves!
Below is a pic of his updated bio for you.
Be sure to visit the Biggest Badass Star page on the Movie Awards site, vote for Rain, and then click on his name to enjoy his bio.
Wishing you many Rainy days,
Terri :-} & Stephe ^@@^
Spread the Word: Rain’s Bio is UP at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards!
Hello lovely Clouds,
I’m so excited! Every single day I’ve been checking to see whether or not someone would get their act together and send MTV a bio for Rain’s 2010 MTV Movie Award nomination. Every day, I’d tromp on over to MTV, log in, vote and then check Rain’s name for that magic underline and index finger that would tell me Rain had a bio linked to his name. And every single day, I was sorely disappointed…
After work, I did my thing. I tromped, voted and all of a sudden: VOILA! There it was! The amazing hand that practically shouted, “CLICK ME.”
So I did. And this is what I saw:
All I can say is THANK YOU “Rain’s people”–whoever you are.
Not only did we get a bio, but we also got a filmography, some photos and, yes, even some clips of Ninja Assassin and a couple of interviews. How absofreakin’ cool is that?
Yes, it’s a very small biography–succinct and to the point. But that appears to be the standard fare over there, so that doesn’t bother me in the slightest. At least now U.S. fans will be able to read a little SOMETHING about Rain over at MTV.com. And if they wanna know more, they can always just pop on over to Cloud USA and read everything else about him, right? :-}
Thanks, Clouds, and big HUGS for making some noise for Rain over at MTV.com. I truly think you had a LOT to do with his getting a bio up sooner than later. And for that, I applaud you ALL.
As for MTV.com? Thank you for finally listening!
To visit his bio for yourself, CLICK HERE, then click on Rain’s name.
It is finally time, Clouds, to do what we’ve been itching to do—get over to MTV.com and give Rain a HUGE thumbs-up for his superb portrayal of “Raizo” in Ninja Assassin. Online voting started at noon EST on May 12th, and will go until June 5th. Let’s help our Ji-Hoon get what he so richly deserves: the » 2010 MTV Movie Awards title of Biggest Badass Star. Anyone who has the sheer strength of will to transform himself from stage performer into a zero-percent body fat killing machine, and can hold his own against Sho-sama (a shinto jinen martial arts master and head of his own institute, who has been in practice for 57 years) in any capacity should wear that crown for life. Seriously.
» MTV’s voting page for Biggest Badass Star is now up, and right HERE. The Rain clip they chose is of that unique and ultra-cool Ninja chase through Berlin traffic, something we haven’t seen in a ninja movie until now. We like.

In the immortal words of Raizo himself (and we do mean to sound critical), “Let’s go!” Let’s finish this strong and bring our Ji-Hoon to Los Angeles. Not simply because his name is Rain, but because this man has worked hard for this honor and he deserves it. Aja fighting!

Rain Invited to the MTV Movie Awards.
News source Asia Economy reported on the 28th (Seoul time) that Rain has been invited to attend the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on June 6th, and that he has accepted the invitation. As we understand it, J.Tune Entertainment stated today, “Rain has been invited from the head office of America’s biggest music channel MTV, so he’ll leave for LA on June 3rd in order to attend 2010 MTV Movie Awards.”
The MTV Movie Awards are in their 19th year, and are a compilation of fun and unusual accolades which have been voted on by many mainstream viewers. (And that is what makes the award important—the Golden Popcorn statuette does represent what currently has the attention of young America, and also their parents.)
Rain’s portrayal of “Raizo” in the 2009 Warner Bros. movie NINJA ASSASSIN is what snagged him his nomination out of a page full of other hopefuls in the Biggest Badass Star category. Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and others didn’t make the cut for the Final Five…
The awards ceremony will take place at the » Gibson Amphitheater.
(Thanks to rain bird and Rain Europe for this timely information!)
Gibson Amphitheater is located in Universal City, California, an unincorporated suburb right outside of Los Angeles. The word on the street is Rain will be in the States for several days before and after the event, and if that is so, we imagine he will use that time wisely to reconnect with previous contacts, see his American representation, et cetera. Get your umbrellas ready, California Clouds—it might be Raining on you really soon. Start planning ahead, Clouds across the nation—Rain should not set foot in L.A. without a host of us there, along with our Cali sisters, to welcome him. Let’s show him how much we care!
