2008 June Ceci Magazine (Chinese) -- Oh! It's Rain


(Part 1)"HIS SOUL"

Ceci: I really would like to break away from the identity of a reporter and pretend to be a close sister or a friend to have this open conversation with you. Frankly how do you think of yourself as being so fortunate?
Rain: Even though there has been many difficult and painful things in between, when I look back, I am overall a very fortunate person. The achievement that I have now is the result of years of effort, but in the world of entertainment there are many others who put forth so much effort and yet are unable to achieve anything. I'm very fortunate, what I've imagined and planned has been realized in every step of the process.

Ceci: Do you still get to eat fried Korean rice cakes by the roadside these days?
Rain: Recently because of the training for , I've had to regulate my diet, I can only eat things such as chicken breast meat and raw fish. Even after becoming famous, I'd still eat fried Korean rice cakes often, just not by the roadside.

Ceci: During such moments, do you suddenly get envious of regular people?
Rain: I would really like to learn from the experience of an "on-campus romance", but for me now, that is just impossible.

Ceci: We can say that there will be paparazzi in the future in Korea. I am not in favor that the personal lives of stars be thoroughly exposed. What do you think? What if in the future, or even now, you are pursued by American paparazzi, what would you do?
Rain: The intrusion of one's personal life is very miserable. But if that is really the case, I'm still just like how I've always been, there won't be much changes. It's because I want to show my most natural and honest side to the fans.

Ceci: Do you have any bad habits, for example habits that you'd personally like to change?
Rain: My brain is always filled with different ideas, there are also a lot of matters to think through. I constantly wish that I'm not this way, but no matter how much I try, it still doesn't help. Perhaps I'm destined to be this way.

Ceci: Through so many years, you've experienced many moments of glory as well as memories of hardships. Is there something that you'd specifically like to forget?
Rain: People can't just have sweet memories. With bitterness then comes sweetness. When there is pain to compare, one can only then appreciate even more those happy moments. I don't have any specific painful thing that I'd want to forget. I won't worry about those things that are painful because the path ahead of me is still long, there is still much that I want to do; if I worry about such things it would just be a waste of time.

Ceci: In your mind, how does the future "Rain" look like?
Rain: Continuing to work hard to be a very good singer and actor. Guiding and supporting newcomers, managing business matters well; but aside from all that, I don't have any definite plans for the time being. However if I have the opportunity in the future, I'd like to give myself freedom. Even though at that time I'd still be working hard, I will put my main energy and affection towards family matters, just like my father. He is my role model.

Ceci: What kind of man do you hate the most, for example the kind that you specifically do not want to become?
Rain: The kind of man who cannot be responsible for himself!

(Part 2) HIS HOLLYWOOD


Ceci: Congratulations to you for being the lead character in the Hollywood movie. Heard that this is a martial arts film. Talk a little bit about the movie.
Rain: Thank you. For the filming of this movie, I'm undergoing training, doing physical exercises to build up the appropriate kind of physique for this character. Am also going through some martial arts training. Filming hasn't begun yet, the daily training has been strenuous. The training program formulated for me is done by the group of acrobatic fighting choreographers for the movie <300>. In short, I hope to be able to present a better appearance of myself to everyone.

Ceci: The movie in which you participated is about to hit the screens. Was the English dialogue in it hard for you? Was there anything specific that was difficult to pronounce?
Rain: It was difficult, for me acting out a role in English is certainly not an easy challenge, but there were many foreign actors and staff around me at that time, so the talking environment was very natural. During the filming process, my English standards were enhanced, it will probably be even better in the next movie.

Ceci: Heard that you sang "Kung Fu Fighting" for the OST of Dreamworks' movie. This is a movie that consists of the collaboration of many international stars such as Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Jacky Chan, Lucy Liu and others. You are the first Korean singer to ever sing a Hollywood movie theme song. Does this indicate that your being in Hollywood has opened up a smooth road ahead? Do you personally feel satisfied?
Rain: I hope that every kind of work that I do would be like my first, and I hope that it will be the best one yet. As I hold on to the present, the future is even more important. As for the end result, I'll just leave that to the fans to evaluate.

Ceci: What is your impression of Hollywood? Have you adapted to a completely unfamiliar environment?
Rain: The movie was filmed in Berlin, and then there were some additional shooting done in L.A. I think regardless of who it is, adapting to an unfamiliar place is not an easy task. I wasn't used to the kind of eating and drinking, even sleeping was a problem. Especially because of the time difference, I ate non-stop as the time in Korea and in the US are completely reversed. Fortunately the production company went through great lengths to take care of me, enabling me to work in peace.

Ceci: Please allow me to ask you this bold question: how do you feel about becoming an international star?
Rain: Thank you for viewing me as an international star even though I personally am not deeply convinced if I am qualified to be one. Stars continuously work hard to be liked by people, and this process is accompanied by many painful periods because there is always the need for new actions and new projects.

(Part 3) HIS CHALLENGES



Ceci: Apart from domestic appearances, the world tour, and your entering Hollywood, you even launched your own fashion line. As fas as you are concerned, don't you feel that it's difficult to take on the challenges of a new territory and work? We know that even though challenges can bring much pleasure, they can also bring much burden.
Rain: I'm one who likes challenges. In order to achieve my target, I will surge forward with all my strength, not wasting a single minute or second. That's why I'm constantly testing out new territories. Even though there are difficult times in my work, it is because of the thrill that comes from the achievement of success that I continue to press forward. Entering Hollywood is not easy, but is a good piece of work, I feel very fortunate.

Ceci: I hope that you can frankly discuss some honest feelings, like during the filming process were there situations where you weren't satisfied or felt especially difficult...particularly uncomfortable feelings that you might have felt while in Germany. Hope that you won't merely give me instant answers like "For me this was a good experience" and so on...
Rain: For me, a person's taste for food is very hard to harmonize. One can work hard on nurturing his performance, but you can't just impose on his taste buds. Chinese food, Korean food, Japanese food, no matter how I eat them I can't get enough of them. Even though Western food is good, but for a Korean, eating it everyday can become unbearable. The inability to adapt to the food and the feeling of loneliness from being by myself in Germany were very painful things.

Ceci: Compare to Korean women, Korean men don't have that much of a high appeal overseas. But yet you've become the top male choice for overseas movies! What is your secret formula? As an actor, what is charming and fascinating about you?
Rain: Movie directors hope to choose from a worldwide range of actors, so as an Asian actor I am fortunate to be chosen. Having the chance to reveal my acting in Hollywood is not an easy task, of course, there is also very aggressive competition. But what can be felt is that these days Hollywood is gradually passing on the glory to Asian actors. I really hope to be one of those influential ones.

Ceci: Your performance in the 2003 KBS drama series was superb and convincing; one moment people could break into laughter while the next they were shedding tears alongside the story. But the pity is that ever since then there has yet to be a piece of your work that can simply stir up people's emotions from deep within. Why is this so?
Rain: This could mean that I am gradually maturing. I can't always be acting that kind of role. Based on different characters, sometimes you must speak less, sometimes you must be depressing and burdensome, and sometimes you must be lovable by all. If I were to come across a character like "Sang Doo" again, I think I will still act out the kind of feeling that will stir people's emotions from within.
