Rain’s dance tune Rainism from his new 5th album of the same title has come under fire for it’s rather explicit lyrics and it has gotten so serious that Rain’s company had to defend him through the media, “The lyrics and song content are definitely not referring to sexual acts between a guy and a woman.”
In a phone interview with J. Tunes Entertainment by SPN Daily, “The lyrics in Rainism are describing the dance movements performed by Rain. We considered using magic stick, body shake to describe the long cane stick dance that Rain had incorporated for the Rainism performance. We never thought that this would become a dispute over whether it was inferring to explicit sexual acts. We never wanted to present that but just the dance only.”
Netizens pointed out that the line “Inside your shaking body, there spins my magic stick” was referring to the male sexual organ, while the line “I’ve felt the unbreakable limit of body shake…” was referring to a sexual act between a man and woman, and questioned the explicit lyrics used, causing Rain to become the brunt of attack. But some showed their support saying that the negativity was too harsh since the album had already passed checks.
Rain‘s new Album “Rainism” is now available for preorder on YesAsia.

JUNG Ji-hoon seems likely to turn into a global star through cinema. The pan-Asian pop sensation Bi (Korean word for rain) revealed in a television interview that he is contemplating two Hollywood roles as his next project. One is a romantic comedy and the other is an action film. Rain said that he can’t disclose which films they are, but that both films are interesting.
He also said that Speed Racer was a great way to make his name internationally, but that his main interest was to work with the Wachowski brothers. Rain’s next film will be the Wachowski brothers produced “Ninja Assassin”. Rain also talked about his singing career and that he will release a new album in October.
Rain set his first steps in acting alongside Song Hye-kyo in the popular television drama “Full House”. He made his silver screen debut in Park Chan-wook’s “I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK”. Since then, he has been filming in Hollywood. He also features back-to-back in Time’s “100 of the most influential people” annual cover story.
