Meanwhile, speculation is mounting amongst Korean netizens that the 27-year-old singer and actor has been cast to appear in Hollywood’s adaption of popular online game “World of Warcraft”. Rain had mentioned in several interviews that he is in talks to appear in a series movie whose production cost is set at over 170 million dollars.
