…that his new social media icon shows that he has Mickey D’s, NYC tour buses, and chopped license plate art on his mind. Clever!

We see you being all cryptic, Rain… sending subliminal messages… :)

[clip][Eng trans] From Stephe’s desk: The whole story — “I thought all South Korean men would look like Rain.”

Okay, y’all.

I’m sure most of you saw the write-ups and TV reports last week about Samuel Okyere “revealing that Lee Min Ho has the most popularity in Ghana” on a Korean reality show. And how Samuel O’s cousin came to Korea after seeing Rain. And that “Women in Ghana like Lee Min Ho and Rain a lot.” And that “he revealed that his cousin was met with disappointment once she actually arrived in Korea, as the male population was not what she had expected”, making everybody in the audience laugh.

Which is cool. But it’s not the whole story.

They pretty much glossed over the fact this hilarious reality TV show segment centered around Rain. (I wonder why. *evil eye*)

Thanks to native speaker Sonya, who has stepped up to the plate a lot this year in bringing us translated Korean news items when she could, we can set the record straight. Sonya, you’re a gem!^^ <3

Samuel Okyere is a young black man from Ghana, West Africa, who has become a favorite TV personality in South Korea these past few years. He speaks Korean and has been on many reality shows. He’s a current cast member of KBS’s Our Neighborhood Variety Sports (a.k.a. New Kiz on the Block). Recently, his cousin Effie, also from Ghana, was brought on the show to talk about Korea. That’s when the hilarity went down, keke~

I really like Effie! I’d hang out with her in a heartbeat.

Read on, and please enjoy. :)

*Note: Korean TV drama My Lovely Girl has begun airing across Eastern Asia on ONE TV’s cable and satellite channel, which is what prompted this interview.


ONE TV Asia 5/5/2015 —

Exclusive! Interview with Rain

rain2

ONE caught up with Hollywood’s superstar Rain, who made a TV comeback after a 4-year-long TV hiatus with romantic drama <My Lovely Girl>, co-starring f(x)’s Krystal Jung.

Set against the backdrop of Korea’s dazzling music and entertainment industry, My Lovely Girl is a romantic drama that tells the story of two individuals who heal their painful memories of love with music.

ONE: Hyun Wook, the character you play in My Lovely Girl, is a talented lyricist who is incredibly successful, somewhat similar to you in real life. For you, what do you think is the key to your success?
Rain: I still have a long way to go. Some people might think Rain is the superstar or super successful, but I am someone who always set new goals and try to accomplish them.

Yep. Like I said, there was NO way Rain would be sitting on his butt doing nothing but taking in the New York skyline all this time. Nuh-uh!

He’s gonna work. He just can’t help it! :) <3 ^@@^
