Now he is starring in the soon to be released movie, Ninja Assassin. Since he can easily be called one of the most famous people in Korea, it’s no surprise that he has so many followers (no, not on Twitter.) From singers to actors, they’ve all names Rain someone they model themselves after.
He is a role model for so many young boys and girls and even the stars. Check out the male celebrities who have admitted their respect for Rain:
Jung Il Woo
“He’s at the top but he’s still so nice and polite. I look up to that. He can act and sing and I wish I could be good at everything like him. I can’t sing or dance but I want to work as hard he does with my acting and be like him.”
“I’ve always liked Rain hyung but when I joined JYP and saw him work I really respected him and looked up to him. I realized his job is not something that happens overnight. He works so hard to be where he is.”
Recently Jaejoong and Yoochun have been spotted w/ Park Tae Hwan during their return to korea.
