Ceci:I really would like to break away from the identity of a reporter and pretend to be a close sister or a friend to have this open conversation with you. Frankly how do you think of yourself as being so fortunate? Rain:Even though there has been many difficult and painful things in between,when I look back,I am overall a very fortunate person. The achievement that I have now is the result of years of effort,but in the world of entertainment there are many others who put forth so much effort and yet are unable to achieve anything. I'm very fortunate,what I've imagined and planned has been realized in every step of the process.
Ceci:Do you still get to eat fried Korean rice cakes by the roadside these days? Rain:Recently because of the training for ,I've had to regulate my diet,I can only eat things such as chicken breast meat and raw fish. Even after becoming famous,I'd still eat fried Korean rice cakes often,just not by theroadside.
Ceci:During such moments,do you suddenly get envious of regular people? Rain:I would really like to learn from the experience of an "on-campus romance",but for me now,that is just impossible.
Ceci:We can say that there will be paparazzi in the future in Korea. I am not in favor that the personal lives of stars be thoroughly exposed. What do you think? What if in the future,or even now,you are pursued by American paparazzi,what would you do? Rain:The intrusion of one's personal life is very miserable. But if that is really the case,I'm still just like how I've always been,there won't be much changes. It's because I want to show my most natural and honest side to the fans.
Ceci:Do you have any bad habits,for example habits that you'd personally like to change? Rain:My brain is always filled with different idears,there are also a lot of matters to think through. I constantly wish that I'm not this way,but no matter how much I try,it still doesn't help. Perhaps I'm destined to be this way.
Ceci:Through so many years,you've experienced many moments of glory as well as memories of hardships. Is there something that you'd specifically like to forget? Rain:People can't just have sweet memories. With bitterness then comes sweetness. When there is pain to compare,one can only then appreciate even more those happy moments. I don't have any specific painful thing that I'd want to forget. I won't worry about those things that are painful because the path ahead of me is still long,there is still much that I want to do;if I worry about such things it would just be a waste of time.
Ceci:In your mind,how does the future "Rain" look like? Rain:Continuing to work hard to be a very good singer and actor. Guiding and supporting newcomers,managing business matters well;but aside from all that,I don't have any definite plans for the time being. However if I have the opportunity in the future,I'd like to give myself freedom. Even though at that time I'd still be working hard,I will put my main energy and affection towards family matters,just like my father. He is my role model.
Ceci:What kind of man do you hate the most,for example the kind that you specifically do not want to become? Rain:The kind of man who cannot be responsible for himself!
