Exclusive! Interview with Rain


ONE caught up with Hollywood’s superstar Rain, who made a TV comeback after a 4-year-long TV hiatus with romantic drama <My Lovely Girl>, co-starring f(x)’s Krystal Jung.

Set against the backdrop of Korea’s dazzling music and entertainment industry, My Lovely Girl is a romantic drama that tells the story of two individuals who heal their painful memories of love with music.

ONE: Hyun Wook, the character you play in My Lovely Girl, is a talented lyricist who is incredibly successful, somewhat similar to you in real life. For you, what do you think is the key to your success?
Rain: I still have a long way to go. Some people might think Rain is the superstar or super successful, but I am someone who always set new goals and try to accomplish them.

ONE: Talent VS hard work, which of it did you think constituted more to your success?
Rain: It is definitely through hard work.

ONE: What made you decide on My Lovely Girl as your comeback TV drama?
Rain: I have always wanted to act in a ‘fairytale’ drama and this was the perfect opportunity. My Lovely Girl is a drama that can be enjoyed by the whole family.


ONE: How was it like acting alongside f(x)’s Krystal?
Rain: This is actually the first time I am acting alongside an actress who is 12 years younger than me. But age difference is not a problem for me. She (Krystal) is a very smart and talented girl, we share the same thinking as well. She is always polite to crew and works very hard. And I truly admire and thank her for that.

ONE: When things get overwhelming or depressing, what is the best remedy for cheering yourself up?
Rain: It is really the people that I work with and my fans. They never fail to cheer me up, they are the reason why I am strong and are always there whenever I am feeling not so great.

ONE: Do you take defeats well?
Rain: Yes, I do take defeats well. However, I don’t just leave them at that. I will take time to analyze why I was defeated and make sure I don’t make the same mistakes again. I think it is important to learn from one’s mistakes.

ONE: Could you tell us what goes into your daily training regime? How long do you spend on going to the gym/exercising? Is there anything you can’t eat?
Rain: I exercise regularly; I make it a point to spend some time in the gym. It is important for people to enjoy their exercise, so choose a form of exercise that makes you happy.


ONE: You’ve taken on a fair bit of action roles in the past. Which do you prefer – action or romantic roles?
Rain: I do not have a preference; I like them both equally. I never pick a film based on the genre; I choose the characters I play. I will think it through thoroughly – if I am the best person to play the character, if I will be able to excel in it and if I can match with the other characters.

<My Lovely Girl> airs every Sunday at 4.30pm. (2 episodes back-to-back) First and exclusively on ONE.
