He is a role model for so many young boys and girls and even the stars. Check out the male celebrities who have admitted their respect for Rain:

Jung Il Woo
“He’s at the top but he’s still so nice and polite. I look up to that. He can act and sing and I wish I could be good at everything like him. I can’t sing or dance but I want to work as hard he does with my acting and be like him.”

ChanSung of 2PM
“I’ve always liked Rain hyung but when I joined JYP and saw him work I really respected him and looked up to him. I realized his job is not something that happens overnight. He works so hard to be where he is.”

TaeMin of SHINee
“I liked Rain sunbae-nim before debut. My role model is Rain sunbae. When I auditioned, I sang his song.”

LeeTeuk of Super Junior
“I always monitor Rain subae-nim’s TV appearances. I learn from them. My favorite song is Only You from his 5th album. I also monitored his comeback performance last time.”

Kim Hyun Joong of SS501
“I actually bought Rain sunbae-nim’s concert DVD with my own money. I always watch if after everyday even if I come home late. I learn so much from it.”

In an interview…
Q)Who’s your role model as a singer?
A)In Korea, I love Rain subae-nim. I memorize his schedule sometimes because I love him so much. I always listen to him so I feel like my voice tone is becoming a bit like his. People say I remind them of him and that is such an honor.

“When I became a trainee through JYP, I auditioned because of Rain sunbae-nim. I learned how to be on stage. He’s my sunbae but also my teacher. I modeled myself after him and studied. When people tell me I’m a mini version of Rain, it’s such an honor. I’d rather hear that than ‘He copies Rain.’ Now that I’ve followed after him, I want to create my own style too.”

“He’s an amazingly talented person. I realized how amazing he really is when I went on stage myself. Thank you for comparing me to him but I can’t just stop there. I have to keep working hard to be myself. I haven’t met him yet but one day I want to perform with him.”

Park Tae Hwan
He picked Rain as the star he looks up to.
“He really knows how to work hard and I look up to him. I don’t just like him, I respect him”
