Megan Fox has no qualms about publicly declaring her love for people. After all, this is a woman who told anyone with an ear and a press badge that she'd like to sleep with actress Olivia Wilde. Now she's apparently moved on to Korean pop stars. While making the Transformers press rounds in Europe, Fox said 26-year-old R&B singer (and budding actor) Rain is the new hotness, in her eyes: "There is this Korean Justin Timberlake named Rain, and I'm really on his situation now. I'm trying to fix this up. I'm working hard."
What she's trying to fix up, exactly, isn't clear. But her comparison to America's favorite former teen-pop superstar is a bold statement, indeed. After checking out one of his music videos, we have to at least give Rain props for his decent choreographed moves.
Rain, a.k.a. Jeong Ji-hoon, is a pretty big star on his native continent, and like Justin, he also acts and has a clothing line. But in all fairness, I think it's high time everyone stops declaring anyone in a trendy hat to be the second coming of JT. Also: The title of the song below is "It's Raining." So he's a master of the dance floor and self-serving puns? Hmm. UPDATE: Replaced "It's Raining" with his newer 2008 jam, "Rainism." (Thanks, Mixers!) Pun comment still stands.
Watch the video and tell us what you think of Rain: Talented and Timber-esque, or is Megan Fox crazier than we all thought?
