abridged version of the article

Quote:
Asian Superstar  Rain (Bi) made a recent appearance on the OBS Weekend Variety Show 'Watch theShow and Movie' (쇼도보고 영화도보고) for "The Interview" segment. Rain openedup and spoke about his personal life as well as accomplishments andexperiences he had been through to further prove that he has profoundmental retardation.

Theinterview started with Rain speaking about alcohol and how his father taught him how to drink during middle school. Rain then proceeded tosay that he's drank up to 40 Soju Bombs ("폭탄주를 최고 40잔까지 마셔봤다"). Rainalso mentioned that there was an incident where he was almost arrestedfor DUI during the Christmas of 2006, therefore he is no longer interested in drinking.

Rain also spoke about his feelings for Park Jin Young. Rain stated that he was ever so grateful because Park Jin Young didn't care about his appearance, instead Park Jin Young took a liking to him due to his diligence and hard work. Rain who suffered from superficial comments while auditioning for others such as "wethink you need some plastic surgery," appreciated Park Jin Young because he accepted him the way he was.

Rain who is now one ofthe biggest stars in Asia as well as through out the world, believes hewas able to accomplish everything because he worked extremely hard, however, he is still not satisfied with himself or his accomplishments yet.

Quote:
This is translation of Korean articleabout the interview he did with one of regional broadcast station whichwill air on Jan 5th.
But some of translation is wrong.

He mentioned max. drink he ever had was 40 soju cocktails(poktanju-Ithink beer mixed with shot of soju) and he also said he had an incidentin 2006 that he got mistaken for DUI due to mouthwash.  He gargledbefore he went out to meet his friends and got stopped at check pointfor DUI.  Because of mouthwash alcohol level, he got mistaken for DUIand after explanation, everything was ok.

Also, mental retardation in translation is not mentioned in any article regarding this interview.
I think it got mistranslated about the rejections from entertainment industry when he first started.
He said he had a lot of rejections from entertainment industry due to his look, height(too tall) and talents.
Base on this rejections and his mistake over the years, he worked hardto improve himself and became what he is now.  And he think he stillneed more work and he will continue to work hard to improve himself.

I hope this clear some of misunderstanding and confusion you guys had and nobody would think he has drinking or mental problem.

ALLKPOP should mention where the source was.
Sometimes when things get translated from one language to another andthen another languages it tends to change  meaning or words.

I don't know you can sign up for this site or not, but if you want tosee this on-air, you can see at www.obs.co.kr on Jan 5, 6pm (koreantime).

I will try to post interview segment with tranlation after it aired.

Thanks.

Das Übersetzungsproblem ist nicht immer leicht zu bewältigen, oft ist es wirklich wie bei "Stille Post", irgendwann kommt etwas ganz anderes heraus als ursprünglich gesagt bzw. geschrieben wurde.

Rain: "My Mother is my motivation"

On OBS’ weekend program, “Watch Shows and Movies,” renown international star Rain appeared in an interview composed of a series of questions pertaining to his successful career. However, it wasn’t the “world star” who answered the questions asked. Instead, it was Jung Ji-Hoon (Rain’s real name) who answered the questions.

When the interviewer asked why Rain lived his life so successfully, Jung, 27, responded by saying, “Without any breaks, I have worked vigorously to get where I am at. I’m testing my pride, and it’s starting to get insecure.”

Jung, however, stated that once he turns 30-years old, he will begin to relax, and that whenever he needs a break, he will not hesitate to take one.

“Who do you seek for inspiration?” the interviewer asked.

“My mother,” Jung said.

When Ji-Hoon was in his second year of middle school, his father’s business collapsed. Shortly after, his mother was diagnosed with diabetes in which his family was financially incapable of providing medical help. Jung’s mother later passed away due to her illness.

“Whenever I think of what my mother went through [with her illness], I can’t help but use that as motivation and inspiration to continue doing what I do,” Jung said.

“I respect my mother, she’s the rock that keeps me sane with everything I do with my career... even if she‘s no longer here with me.”

Jung also shared that he believes his mother is one of the reasons why he’s doing so well in his career. “Whenever I visit my mother’s grave, before a new album is released, my album does really well.”

“Like watercress, I want to become a star who isn’t intimidated by failure or breakdown,” Jung said. “I also don’t always want to be known as just ‘Rain,’ but as Jung Ji-Hoon.”

080105 Rain OBS Interview English Subtitle


Rain who is ready to take the world by storm!


(The Interview RAIN)


His story starts

I'm a guy so of course I'm interested

I was so disappointed at myself

Sometimes I feel bad about myself



~Rain, talks about Jung Ji Hoon~


PD : So you don't date? You don't seem interested in girls?
Rain : I'm a guy I'm a guy so of course I'm interested.

PD : What style do you look for?
Rain : I like a girl with a clean image.

PD : Could you be more specific?
Rain : OK. To be more specific, I'm human being.
I would like to feel at ease with her when I talk...
Someone who's fun
who is a good cook
who enjoys the thing I like
who looks good in jeans a T shirt

the reason I'm bringing this up is..
when I was young
I attended Anyang Arts High School
so I was in the bus and fell asleep when I woke up
there's this girl in cotton pants and white cotton shirt,
her hair is straight and slightly long.
And her hair was flowing with the wind...
you know how it is in the movie.
But she got off just then. I didn't want to lose her..

PD : When was that
Rain : In high school

PD : It will be great if you can meet her
Rain : She lived in Gwachon, Seoul.

PD : So that was around 10 years ago
Rain : Already?

PD : So around 10 years ago, a girl who lived in Gwacheon,
Rain : that was 8 years ago

PD : the girl can contact your office
Rain : I also want to date girls

PD : I'm sure you're interested in girls
Rain : But I'm sure those who work hard will agree
If you love what you are doing, you miss out love
If you are really into love, you miss out your work

PD : You can't restrain it?
Rain : I can't. Rather than saying restrain,
as I've mentioned before I am very much attached to my work

PD : So you must feel a strong connection to a girl
Rain : Yes, I guess that's who people are
you start with love, then comes effort, then respect



YOU CAN'T ME CONQUER ME
-on the stage-

I LACK IN MANY WAYS
-off the stage-



Rain : When I ask, what do you think is Rain's image,
they tell me they feel at ease with me.
So I think I should become a comfortable guy,
that is my strength.

PD : What about when you are on stage?
Rain : When I'm on stage, sometimes I feel bad about myself.

PD : I don't think so
Rain : Of course I've been on nearly 50 concerts
so I do have know-hows and my special something
I just let myself enjoy he stage
It's not work, it's not too hard, it's so much fun so I enjoy it
I've never complained when I danced or went up the stage

PD : I thinks so too
Rain : I just enjoy the stage



I DON"T REGARD MYSELF AS A PUBLIC FIGURE
JUST BECAUSE I'M AN ENTERTAINER

I'M JUST A PERSON WHO IS A REALLY NICE, AN ENTERTAINER



Rain : What I'm scared of is, if there's a misunderstanding about me
my mother fans will be so angry with me
PD : Well but that misunderstanding does not last long

Rain : One night last winter, I got so hungry
so I ate alone and drove out of the house
and I gargled because I wanted to feel fresh
so I'm driving
and there are checking for driving under influence of alcohol.
the police told me to blow
and I did, and there's this red light
Why I didn't even drink!

so the police says, hey you are a public figure,
and I said I'm sorry but did not drink a sip
so the police says, that's what everyboby says
and I told him I really didn't drink
but just because I'm a public figure,
some people were like, let's call the reporters
but I told they need to check for sure.

So a policeman with a higher ranking comes over
he ask, 'you didn't drink?'
and I said I didn't drink!
So he asked me to blow again. I did and it's the red light again!
It's so weird because I didn't drink a sip!
He then brings a cup of water and tells me to rinse my mouth.
I did and I blew and the red light is not on!
and said 'you shouldn't gargle' but it happens you know.
so that's the episode I had.
But I was didn't feel good at that time.



PROMISE HE MADE WITH HIS LATE MOTHER..
YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING IF YOU TRY HARD
YOU MUST GIVE IT ALL AND TRY HARD



Rain : My father who is the drive to my life
and gives me a place to relax...is my source of my motivation

PD : You always felt like way. Whenever you started a new drama
Rain : Yes. Whenever I start a new drama or launch a new album,
I always go first to my mother and tell her
If I tell her, it all goes well
It all goes well and I think she is really helping me so much
And because of that I can't afford to be idle

PD : Yes, I thinks so..Your mother must be like your spiritual mentor.
Rain : She is my religion



I know what it is to be hungry.
I had no place to go.
I don't allow myself to relax




~Jung Ji Hoon talks about Rain~


PD : You always seem so hungry for success. Everytime I see you
Rain : For instance I use to joke,
because I've been jobless for such a long time

Since I was freshmen in high school, my family went through financial difficulty
I thought I should really start on my part time job
and I wanted to provide some kind of a financial support to my family
but I was of no help
and I really felt what it means to be hungry
I really experience the pain of going hungry because I have no money
and I thought I should never go hungry again
I decided I should never face this kind of situation
that kind of fierce determination was formed
So when I work and push myself and if I accomplish something
I feel such a rush of catharsis.
Passion

PD : I read somewhere that you were rejected in 18 auditions
Rain : I said at least 18 auditions. I went on a lot of audtions



Jung UK : Rain danced non stop for 4 hours during his audition.
Other ppl will dance 5 minutes, which is considered to be long.
But he danced non-stop for 4 hours



I was really desperate.
I was so deserated and I really needed to succeed fast.
There was no turning back.



PD : What did JYP look for when he selected you in the audition.

(Q. JYP's chioce..)

Rain : To JYP, it was one thing.
My attitude of working hard
My determination to accomplish something
I don't allow myself to relax.
I feel as if I'm dragging a bus that needs to run everyday
I want to become someone that is irreplaceable.

PD : So you have your own company? J-Tune.
Rain : Yes, J-Tune.

PD : What does it means?
Rain : 'J' stands for 'Ji Hoon' and 'Tune' stands for 'promote'.
I wanted to test my abilities (reason why he set up a new company)
If I accomplish yet another milestone,
people will find an improved Jung Ji Hoon.
This is yet another challenge that I'm relentlessly working on.

PD : So that's why you want to nurture young talents?
Rain : Yes, there are auditions for young talents.

PD : Is there an age limited? Maybe I could give it a shot
Rain : As an actor with an edge



COMING SOON!!


(Q. PD : What is your ultimate goal?)

Rain : When I become 30, I want to loosen up myself.
I've have been working non-stop like a toothed-wheel.



I have such great opportunities right now.
I thought this role is for me
I wanted to overcome that.



Rain : I have great opportunities right now.
PD : So this is a critical moment
Rain : Yes, very critical
I think compared to the passion I had when I released my first album,
I have 10 times the passion
to overcome this mountain I have in front of me.

In the past wanted to work so much
but I couldn't grasp the opportunity,
but now those opportunities are coming to me
So now I can choose the good opportunities and work hard.
Compared to the past, it has become really easy.
But if I grasp the opportunities, from that moment
I have to give it my all.


(Casting to "Speed Racer")


RAin : I auditioned for the role.
At first I was slightly offended.
When I have to audition.
But I came to understand that
In Hollywood, even if you are the biggest star,
whether it's Brad Pitt, everybody has to audition.

So they said, OK come to audition
And I thought if I pass the audition, I get the part.
But they said to come again
So I asked, what is this part, how do I interpret it.
I said, My English is not that fluent
but if you give me that part I will give it my all
I said, that role is for me^^

PD : You said it yourself?

(Rain gets one of the main parts)

Rain : Then they said, OK read the script again.

Next year, in the States, with the name Rain and Jung Ji Hoon,
The movie will be out, my new album will be out around end of the year
So I'm planning to promote
not only the States but also in Korea, Japan, China and Europe.
2008 will be the year to use the sword I have bee grinding

Rain has faced a lot of limitations.
People said, his 1st album will be his limit
his 2nd album will be his limit
his 3rd album will be his limit
his 4th album will be his limit and that's it.
It was always like that.
And I've always tried to overcome that

And now I think it is the time to show some results.
Even if it turns out to be a failure, I don't think it is a failure.
Because I managed to open the door.
And I have to pass that door and now I'm knocking on the door.
If I don't pass the door, then a better new talent will rise
making it easier for the new talent to pass the door
since I've opened it.
If that person does not succeed, then the next person..
If it's not me, someone will be able to pass the door.



~I've always tried my best. That's why I'm always confident.
Rain will continues to work hard
In the future
I want to remembered as Rain who always worked hard.
I think the attitude and the determination
is more important than the number of years
I enjoy working
To me, difficulty is my most valuable asset.
Because I'm not naturally talented
I have to practice real hard
and work hard when others are asleep
so that's why I'm able to dance
I'm always fighting against myself
Please help me to win this battle

Rain's Thanks to message in his 3rd album
