Oct 2008 - Exclusive Rain Interview with Channel [V]

Showering his greatness upon the world is Korean pop sensation, Rain. A cross-cultural icon, Time magazine named him one of 2007’s “Most Influential People in the World” while People magazine included him in its “Most Beautiful People” issue. Rain is one of the few artists to generate just as much buzz in Asia as he does in Western markets.

With the launch of his latest album, Rainism, Rain is thundering back. With Rain flooding the airwaves, the chart-topping icon is [V]’s Chosen One for the month.

In this tell-all chat, the Korean idol opens up about his new album and upcoming projects.

You recently released your fifth album, Rainism. What can you tell us about it?
RAIN: Rainism was released two years after my last album, Rain’s World. On this album, I explore many different genres of music with songs like ‘Rainism,’ ‘Love Story,’ and ‘Fresh Woman.’ I hope people will enjoy it!

Why did you take so long to release this album?
RAIN: For the past two years, I was shooting movies such as Ninja Assassin and Speed Racer [directed by The Matrix’s Wachowski Brothers]. So I haven't been around much since I was abroad. Now I'm going to focus on my career as a singer.

What was your main goal in making this album?
RAIN: Above all, I wanted to make cheerful songs. In terms of choreography, I tried to make the performances full of fun. When you watch songs from Rainism through my music videos or my performances, you'll have a much better idea of what went into making this album. I'm sure you’ll enjoy it.

The hit single, ‘Love Story,’ has a very dramatic storyline. Can you tell us about this song?
RAIN: Love Story’ is my personal love story. The melody is familiar and easy to listen to. It’s the kind of song that you can sing along to as well. The music video for ‘Love Story’ is a hot topic these days.

Why is that?
RAIN: It’s mainly because the famous Korean actress, Ha Ji-won, who plays the leading lady, draws a lot of attention. I’m so glad that she was part of this music video. She was great to work with. The total length was originally 45 minutes. But you can see the final shorter version on CHANNEL [V] now.

We've heard that you're preparing for the Rainism Tour. Where will you be touring and what can we expect?
RAIN: The title of the tour is ‘The Legend of Rainism.’ I will tour all over Asia starting with Korea next March. Then I will go to all the major Asian cities. Watch out for it in your city. It'll be great!

In Ninja Assassin, you play ‘one of the world’s deadliest assassins.’ Tell us about the film.
RAIN: It was amazing working with the Wachowski Brothers again [directors of the Matrix films and Speed Racer]. You'll experience a whole new dimension of action scenes. The interesting thing about it was that we used Chinese martial arts like Kung Fu because the stunt people trained with Jet Li and Jackie Chan. You'll see a lot of cool action sequences. It’s a lot of fun and it's going to be released this summer [in July].

What are your New Year's resolutions for 2009?
RAIN: In 2009, I'd like to see many new talents emerge from my company. I'm personally training some of them now. When these new artists come out, please show them your love. Ninja Assassin will also be released this year so I hope it'll be successful worldwide. If you guys enjoy the movie, spread the word! And my new album will come out in August, which is around the same time as Ninja Assassin’s release. The new album is a big project so I’m really looking forward to it.

Any last words for your Asian fans?
RAIN: Hi, guys! I love you all, thank you for your support and best wishes, everyone!

Watch Rain storm his way back on the charts with the debut of his new video, Love Story. Fans can get more on their idol with the [V] special on Sunday, January 25 at 7 pm HK/SIN, 8 pm MAL. You can also watch ALL of his music videos and the UNCUT exclusive [V] interview with the Rain-man himself NOW!

Danke für das Interview!

2 Dinge stimmen leider nicht so ganz: die Love Story war leider am Ende "nur" 35 Min. (ich hätte es gerne natürlich länger gehabt  Wink ) und da der März in 2 Tagen zu Ende ist, denke ich mal nicht, dass es so jetzt auf die letzte Minute eine Tour geben wird. Ich bin gespannt, wann Rain die Tour jetzt plant.
