Ok, I really liked Speed Racer. And, no not just because Rain was in it although it was really cool that he was. But even more importantly, he landed on the Wachowski’s radar and THAT resulted in Ninja Assassin. I concur that Rain would make an incredibly good action film star with a healthy side of brood and insolence mixed in. I rather enjoy him in broody, insolent roles where you ultimately end up liking him because somewhere buried beneath those layers of insolence is a decent guy who upon discovering his own decency, lets us in on it. Rain’s Taejo Togokahn is one of those guys.

RAIN 비 (Jung Ji-Hoon)
Yes, Rain just happens to be my own personal #1 favorite K-Shot of Hot! So, it is apropos I begin this journey with him leading the way! As new as I am to K-drama and K-pop, that is how new I am to Rain. I discovered Rain through the K-drama, A Love To Kill. It was a heavy, emotional and sad drama. But Rain blew me away with his honest and very raw performance. At that point, I had yet to embark upon really getting to know ALL of Rain. The music side, the dancer side, the performer side and the actor side. I have a long way to go and a lot yet to learn and discover about Rain, but I am on my way.
