Megan Fox's crush, Rain: Are you digging the 'Korean Justin Timberlake'?

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?

    Oh, please. Steven Colbert put Rain on the MAP a long time ago!

  • Clarissa

    I enjoy Rain. (Not gonna lie… he’s was pretty much the only reason I sat through Speed Racer.) But Colbert gave Rain the bump way back when.

  • Anne-Marie

    His moves and way of singing and style remind me of M. Jackson.
    He’s sexy, I can see M. Fox’s point.

  • Megan

    The more she talks the dumber she sounds.
    I used to think Megan was like the sexiest chick on earth but the more I read and hear about her the less attractive I find her.
    Oh well, who am I.

  • tt2

    meh…

  • XiaoXi

    The more I see of Rain the hotter I think he is. The stuff coming out about Ninja Assassin is crazy–he is looking fine! But honestly, I think Fox is just a little to freaky for anything to happen between them.

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    Forget Rain. Why do all you girls hate on Megan Fox? She is the most talented actress since Vanessa Hudgens

    • noneofyourbeeswax

      Um, why are you saying that? Vanessa Hudgens isn”t talented!! And Megan Fox is seriously overrated. Everyone treats her like some uncommon, rare beauty, but if all of you would open your eyes for a second, and wipe away her makeup, and also take away the presumed plastic surgery she has undergone, which most of us hardworking women have gone without, you would see she is no more special or intriguing than the next model. or store mannequin. Most of all those american Hollywod actresses allow themselves to follow The same standard of what is beautiful and compelling and attractive, and so they all appear too shallow with no induviduality. I mean actresses like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly were much better. Audrey Hepburn had a sweet personality on and off screen, and worked with children in foreign countries face to face for years, And Grace Kelly was pure elegance. She married royalty. And what is Megan Fox doing? Just wiggling her possibly silicone butt in every movie she can get into. And her intelligence level, at least from what I’ve heard, is ridiculously low. She lets herself say these stupid things. In forty or fifty years, there will probably be no memory of her. just another “hot” body. Not unless she does something worthwhile and good and kind. Otherwise, she will be, quote, “as interesting as a wet carrot” when she gets older. That is why most women do not like Megan Fox. And as for me, I know for a fact, from spending a year stationed in Korea, that most Koreans cultural definition of beauty and what is desirable is different from the American definition. in other words, many of the Koreans,including the hot ones like Rain, don’t find Megan Fox attractive. I heard this from some of their own mouths. they also say she is not very intelligent. They find short, delicate, pale skinned sweet tempered girls very very desirable. It drives them absolutely insane with lust. Not at all like most famous women or women like Megan Fox.

      • noneofyourbeeswax

        O yeah, and I will be extremely surprised if miss Fox if she gets together with Rain. From what I’ve seen, it doesn’t appear likely.

      • elliestar

        so just because she’s pretty, you assume she had plastic surgery? she looked the same as when she did in “confessions of a teenage drama queen.” that was when she was like 16 or 17. yeah, she had a alot of work done then…yeah, right. she is a celebrity so she has the money to go to spas every week or whatnot and have the most expensive skin care done, so just because you can’t take care of your self or work twice as hard doesn’t mean you can bash on someones physical appearance. get over it. and have you heard her interviews? she probably says more impressive words than you honey. also im korean so yeah like you said theyre definition of beauty isnt megan fox, so what? they don’t think you’re pretty either then if you’re not korean or live in that culture.

      • KamiJo

        elliestar…tht was the most stupidest reply ever. are yoo some kind of groupie of megan fox or something b/c yoo totally sound brainwashed and idk how but yoo skipped the main points of noneofyourbeeswax arguements and jst attacked blindly but if it satisfies yoo to worship people yoo technically know nothing abt than who am i to judge

      • wow

        all of you. wooow. peterbilt…i really hope that was sarcasm. noneofyourbeeswax…you’re just pointing out that megan’s a superficial not-so-natural-beauty and that there are different standards of beauty that she doesn’t meet. for awhile. okay.
        kamijo…you are seriously troubled if think you don’t look like an idiot talking about elliestar’s “stupidest reply ever,” while using “yoo” instead of “you.” and you sound just as confused as elliestar. as you say, who are you to judge? just because ellie comes to megan’s defense does not make her worship her. and ellie..i agree with you on the korean part. =/
        please everyone, get over yourselves. kthanks =]

  • scorpiola

    Please post a newer MV of Rain, post ‘Rainism’ please! I enjoy watching him a lot. He’s the hottest!

  • JC

    Why would wanting a piece of Rain’s hotness make Megan Fox “crazier than we all thought?” Frankly, for me, this is the first interesting thing that came out of her mouth. By the way, if you knew how big Rain is in not only Korea but on the Asian continent (and among Asian-Americans), you’d know that he’s more than just “anyone in a trendy hat” being compared to J.T. It’s disappointing to see that somehow, when a woman thinks an Asian man is hot, it’s seen as a quirk or some peculiar preference. You don’t have to like Rain or even think he’s hot, but I resent the implication that being attracted to this man and openly seeking his attention makes Megan strange for some reason.

    • Jayla

      your totally right. how cn u compare JT to Rain. They’re totally different ppl who have thier inspirtation from m.jackson. Just because of the small similarity it automatically makes rain similar to JT instead of the other way around. AND How is liking rain strange. I’m black and I love Rain and K-pop.

      RAIN HWAITING!

    • Jshhu

      Yeah, It’s sad to see him being compared to JT coz he’s so different to JT.

  • Reiko

    Honestly, I haven’t heard of him until now…
    I think Megan’s comparison is pretty accurate; he seems to have a Justin Timberlake fame status in Asia, and his music and style is pretty similar to JT’s. Sure, there are a bunch of differences, but most Korean music aficionados would agree that Rain would be the closest Korean counterpart to JT.

    My roommate went to Korea for a semester of school through the exchange program. When she came back, she would blast Rain from her computer. It was pretty obnoxious. She also bought one of those rice cookers and made a sh*t ton of kimchi. I can’t believe I didn’t murder her in her sleep. That kimchi made the whole apartment smell…

    • Gideon

      yeah , your white people’s cheese smell almost disgusting jack ass!!!

  • Jen Schaver

    Well said…
