But........


Rain is a sex symbol, they don't just grow on trees. Sexiness/fitness and charisma along with singing talent and an amazing stage presence are special things and Rain has all of them. The thing I've had a problem with for the longest time about the U.S music industry is that talented singers and performers who don't fit the demographics almost never get a chance. Quite a few K-Pop stars are actually Americans. They get discovered then shipped to Korea or Japan to make it big. It's just nuts, the record companies think they can't sell them to a U.S market so they ship them off to Asia where they learn the language a bit and how to sing in it phonetically. It used to be the same with Latin and Hispanic Americans too many years ago. Only in the last couple of decades has that changed. I can't wait for the day when an Asian American artist can get a break in their home country first if that's where they want to be and then branch out into the Asian markets as well.

As far as PSY goes, the song is super catchy, has a chorus that is easy to sing and has some English in it too and the video is hilarious. Gangnam Style was also helped by the fact that K-Pop is an emerging genre that has been picking up steam for a while. So when Gangnam Style hit YouTube people spread the word, YouTube featured it and it grew from there. A lot of people who are dissatisfied with the current state of Pop have discovered K-Pop and love the singing, the dancing and the overall presence of many K-Pop artists. PSY also isn't a 'flower boy' or a pretty boy which in Korea isn't an asset, but in the West it kind of is. I loved the song the first time I heard it and saw the video and I'm glad that America and the West has taken notice. I really hope it's not a Korean Macarena because there are so many great K-Pop and Indie and even Trot stars that deserve to be noticed and appreciated on the world stage. I understand that cultural differences will keep most from making the cross over, but if just 1% of them get a chance on an international stage that would be great for music in general and the Korean and hopefully by extension Japanese music industry as well.

Re: PSY - Gangnam Style (South Korean smash single)

Yeah, Rain's got a great body but a lot of young Seoulites really look after themselves so he's not really that special. His face is quite plain too, he's attractive but not all that striking. I think Tae-yang from Big Bang and Taecyeon from 2PM are way more attractive. Also you'd probably find a couple of guys on each and every subway car who'd be more attractive than Rain...well, on certain lines, anyway! Although, Taecyeon is one of those people you mentioned that are shipped from (or back to, in his case) SK from abroad.

Plus, Rain's got that wonky eye that he tries to hide!

Almost 100 million views It sucks that they made her do that stupid voice , I like her bubble pop better

And about Korean entertainment, I think shows like Strong Heart, Star King, the music shows, some drama's and we got married is great .

MBLAQ Lee Joon is on we got married now and he is hotter than Rain, saw a clip on youtube of him poledancing, wowah.

Seriously I'm sorry that I broke your heart but I hope you'll seek some help in getting over your obsession with me. The fact that you see nothing wrong with making up stupid and blatant lies just to mess with me is concerning.

As I mentioned to someone else, the most recent case of a kid offing themselves because of cyber-harassment made me decide to no longer see it as amusing. And in that thread, at least the poster was attacking me about something that is my opinion. You've gone beyond that. The first step will be to report you on here.

Psy was a draft dodger, used illegal drugs, a notorious plagiarist..

The world really is not fair.
