05.16.11 [DailyEconomy] Rain compares Asian Entertainment market to USA’s

Rain says that the status of Asian entertainment market compares quite well with that of USA’s.

Singer Rain has intimated he intends to take Asia for his turf by saying that the status of Asian entertainment market compares quite well with that of USA’s.

Through a press conference before his Macau concert as part of his Asia tour on the 14th, Rain said, “Now America is no longer dominant. Many Asian movies and musics have gained incredible popularity in recent years. Asia is even with USA in cultural status now.”

After introducing his new movie being shot “Flight : Close up to the Sun”, Rain mentioned that he wanted to take action films much more and play romantic roles in TV dramas. But he had no comment on his entering the military reported to be scheduled for the end of this year.

At this press conference which started approximately two and a half hours behind schedule, questions were only subject to advance arrangements by his manager. That’s why reporters couldn’t ask him about his absence due to his compulsory two-year military service.

His fans who visited the Venetian Macao casino-hotel where his concert was held, expected that Rain could surely keep his position even after leaving the military.

University student Zhao Wenwei said, “His two-year military service could help him become stronger, more manly, making him better, more mature.”

Another fan who came over from Shanghai, said, “Though we shall be far apart for two years, he’ll be always in my heart. I’ll remember him, watching his movies and his past works.”

    now i hope US fans don’t get a jolt when they read this article. but when you look at how far KBS, MBC, YTN and just recently Arirangs’ announcement of it’s 24 hr program launch here in the US, and the other major tv outlets have expanded their services throughout the world what Rain says here is true. for instance KBS now broadcast in numerous different languages and services those countries. Rain’s Discovery doc. distributed and shown in 130 different countries. his NA film seen in almost 100 countries. not just that, but now we can view Taiwan programs, Japan programs, Bankkok news, Cambodia docs. Thailand news, China tv, Bollywood/India movies, music and fashion and so many others. so yes i would say his statement here is correct. is all of the US watching these networks? probably not unless they channel surf many don’t even know the service is available.

    This article has caused an “uproar” across the internet. I have already made my statements here and at CloudUSA. The general consensus is that some of Rain’s words (intent) was taken out of context and the tone set was unintentional, as this article was distributed worldwide through the Associated Press to many news outlets and as it was also a reporter’s interpretation of Rain’s words. This printed interview didn’t exactly give U.S. fans a “warm and fuzzy” feeling.
