Rain talking about western discrimination


basically he is very aware of it, I guess this explains some of the dirty looks he gives interviewers behind the veil of politeness

  1. This is what I'm talking about. Rain deals with white people professionally for the same reason most POC do - we have to.

  2. The part that REALLY pissed me off was them assuming he must be biracial as if white people have a monopoly on height! I mean so many Hollywood super stars are short or average height yet they get a pass because they are white so they don't have to represent their entire race.

    Ah, yes...the ole "we find you attractive, thus you must have white folks in your family somewhere" bullshit.

    Um...like...Uhura anyone?

  4. Okay, I know I'm supposed to be serious here, but they were just damn funny. They look like they were having so much fun. I love Bi's drunk story. Hilarious! Women in Germany don't play, do they? Can't say that I blame them either.

    On to the serious...

    There you go. I couldn't have said it better myself.

  5. I also died laughing at the story about Rain getting a little whiskey in his system and automatically jumping on stage to dance.

    We've all seen how sexy he normally dances, what does he do once the whiskey has lowered his inhibitions? T_T

  6. (rasping) "Can I get your number?"

    Which presumptuous bitch was trying to get his number?

    Btw...his accent is sexy. Fuck it - Asian accents are sexy. There. I said it. I seriously needed to be said.

    In Ninja Assassin, when he climbs the steps to his apartment in slo-mo swag and then talks to his landlord...my breath catches every single time.

    And every time he switches to English here, in this very vid, the squeal comes pouring out of my mouth before I can stop it. *blink*

    In NA, had he pulled off his mask and started talking to Mika in some thick, all-American boy accent, it wouldn't have been nearly as hot. Remember when he talks about being followed because of their scent, and Mika's like "Our scent? What...you mean like dogs?" Remember that penetrating gaze he gives her before replying in that deep voice, "No. Like wolves"?

    Y'all remember that, don't you?

    Fuck...it's been ages since I watched that shit. I need to go get me a fix.

    You can't get mad at her...according to him, he was more than willing to give up the digits. She knew what she wanted and went after it. And you know how well he dances. If he was dancing the way he normally dances, can you blame her?

    In Ninja Assassin, when he climbs the steps to his apartment in slo-mo swag and then talks to his landlord...my breath catches every single time.

    Gurrlll!!! That's got to be one of my favorite shots of him in the movie. I'm fixated on him coming up the steps all slow like, and then that damn nosy landlady distracts me with her utter nosiness before I can focus back on Raizo again (I can't help it...she's shameless).

    I know. *hangs head in shame* I'm weird.

  8. I don't blame that German woman, she liked what she saw and she went for the digits.

    Yeah, it sounds like something a sista would do, but since it happened in Germany, probably not. I ain't mad at the woman though. She handled her business and almost got Rain's number in the process!

  10. He was drunk, ladies. Had he been sober he wouldn't have been handing out his digits to a stranger. Remember, he's a superstar...they live by different rules. Sober Rain would've asked one of his people to "set things up".

    Yup. But I still give it up to the German chick who stepped up. You go, girl whoever you are!

  12. Oh, yeah...props to that girl. Fuck, had I been in a similar situation, I would've done the same.

  14. He was on the show "Happy Together". Try searching for that. I'll also look for a new link.

  16. summary of the video: Rain is talking about when he was in Germany filming Ninja Assassin. He was on the Korean show "Happy Together". He said most Westerner's do not find Asian men attractive. Some Westerner's asked him if he was biracial because they did not think Asians could be as tall as he is. There was also a story about him going clubbing with some people from the film, drinking too much whiskey then jumping on stage to dance. Some woman approached him and asked for his number. He was willing to give it to her but but he blanked on his English.

  17. To be quite honest, if I saw him in a club and he took off his sunshades and his eyes weren't single-eyelided, I would no longer be interested, lol. I love everything about his face--his eyes, his broad nose and nostrils, full lips. SEXY.
    Concerning the discrimination, I noticed that when he tried to break into the American market back in '06, JYP thought it best to try through the African-American hiphop, r&b popular artists of the time i.e. Lil Kim, 3LW, Omarion, etc. I know the entertainment companies representing the Britneys and Christinas weren't beating down the door trying to get them to duet with Bi. You'll read alot of nonsense online about supposed rampant racism between blacks and Koreans, but I find the truth to be that the two races/cultures actually ban together when necessary. We both, being non-white, understand each others' struggles. No wonder the majority of Bi's music biz contacts in the States appear to be black or minority. Coincidence? I think not.

  18. *nods* Here at the Narrative, we call it the "Pattern" (see the Addictionary).

    Rain has said in interviews that he tends to relate to *paraphrasing here* people without money/power, people who had to struggle/earn their place. So maybe he relates to the African-American experience of being the underdog.
