dsl99a's Note: This was a long article and interview, so I'm summarizing and translating what he said.

15 Oct 2008 - Rain Becomes More Sincere Upon Release Of 5th Album

- Prior to the release of the 5th album, Rain went to visit and pay respects to his mother again.

- Rain said, "I've given up what all others in their 20s are enjoying, but I have no regrets. The movie "Ninja Assassin" in which I have a leading role will hit the theaters worldwide in the beginning of next year, and my special album will be released in the US the 2nd half of the year. I think, next year could mark the biggest connecting point in my life."

- The October 15th release of "Rainism" was devised by him, and it's termed as 'Rain's music, dance and image of the new era'. It is the kind of music that can be enjoyed by listening with the ears and seeing with the eyes. It has strong dance characteristics. The electronic music based "Rainism" and the ballad "Love Story" have become hit songs because of these reasons. Most of the music are composed by Rain and he personally duplicated rhythms with electronic musical instruments, almost similar to that of Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back".

- Rain indicated, "I don't care too much about the success coming from acting a lead role in "NA". Acting in "Speed Racer" set a good foundation, and now through "NA" another level has been set, and because of this lay-out it's become my 2nd movie. "NA" is an action film, but it also contains a beautiful, chilling love story."

- In regards to his performance at the Beijing Olympics closing ceremony, he said, "The Olympic Games surmounted race, ideology, idealism, the boundaries of thinking; the world became one body to celebrate. Being able to perform with China's top entertainers singing to words and music composed by a Japanese, and receiving the invitation to be Korea's representative by the Olympic Committee--I felt like it was "one world" at last."

- Rain plans to shed off the image of "the good-looking and graceful singer", demonstrating an inner side of him to the audience. He is also giving up his own idea of perfectionism, easing up on the pressures of needing to perform flawlessly and to have a perfect, well-toned body."If in the past I was like that of a hard pillar of cement, then right now I am a soft willow moved easily by the wind. Whenever I'm performing the performance must be perfect, and my expressions at the end of it must looked like everything was effortless; only then did I feel relieved. Even if I was injured, sad or weary, nothing was revealed. But I must now say to my fans too that it was very painful, very difficult." He smiled and went on saying, "Because I'm young, I felt that it didn't matter if I felt any ache, didn't accept any physical therapy. But right now I want to have a comprehensive physical examination."

- He is continuously lonely in enduring and challenging himself."There has been one unfortunate event to another in the entertainment circle recently, everybody is in panic. Although it feels more despairing and lonelier, I will work hard and stand firm again. When I stayed in the US last year during Christmas Eve, that was the first time I cried. Haha..."

- Rain has not forgotten his own duties. He has established J.Tune, has been an actor, trained new trainees and also formed a clothing line. But he is very clear of his own strong point, that is singing and performing on stage."JYP, SM and YG are Korea's evergreens of the music world. To say that I must be their successor is bigger than attempting my own dream. When discussing business, I have my management and operations personnel, I do not do it personally. Because no matter when, I'm still an entertainer."(END)
