09.21.10 [dkpopnews] Filipino netizens mad over variety show’s joke about Rain’s appearance

Filipino KPop fans were enraged against GMA Network’s variety show Party Pilipinas last September 19, Sunday, after the hosts claim that Korean idol Rain will appear on the show. The viewers, however, were dismayed to see that instead of an actual Rain (who held a concert in Manila a week prior), singer Mark Bautista appeared on stage while being doused by raining water. A caption then appeared, “Sabi sa inyo may Rain eh (We told you there’s going to be Rain).”

Although it was supposed to be a show of humor, not everybody got the memo as Pinoy netizens reacted violently on Twitter and Facebook. Comments include:

“Walang budget ang Party Pilipinas for Rain. Damn! Pathetic! Buti pa ASAP XV Flo Rida na-guest nila. Winner!” (Party Pilipinas does not have the budget to bring Rain, unlike (rival variety show) ASAP XV that brought Flo Rida as guest.)

“WTF! I didn’t like what Party Pilipinas did about the RAIN thing! It’s like they’re DESPERATE TO GET HIGH RATINGS! I’m upset!!!”

“Masyadong maraming pakulo ang Party Pilipinas na yan kasi they have nothing much to offer.” (That Party Pilipinas has so many gimmicks because they have nothing much to offer.)


“Kainis! Ia-announce ko na pa naman sana sa mga Asian friends ko. Buti na lang hahaha di ko tinuloy.” (I’m pissed! I was supposed to announce it to my Asian friends. Good thing I didn’t do it hahaha.)

The joke is reminiscent of the lengths of some variety shows in the past did to lure viewers. One show claimed that they were “Live in Hong Kong,” only to show their hosts speaking their lines in front of a chroma screen with images of Hong Kong being displayed on the background.

    yeah, it was sick…Florida was at the rival show at that same time so they used Rain to lure audiences to switch channel…this is what i call DESPERATION to earn ratings. It is unfair to Rain…

    Did he and his people say he would be there, if not that they were mad for no reason. Unless it’s confirmed don’t believe things that’s desperate fans.

    @debbie Yes I totally agree with you!!!! For me it was not a joke,it was desperation and being disrespectful to Rain and for the people who really expected for Rain to come out on the show. People were really dismayed with the TRICK that Party Pilipinas made last Sunday!!!! Hello! This is not a joke it’s called THE ART OF FOOLING PEOPLE just to have “A FEW SECOND SHOT IN THE LIMELIGHT”….

    i know right…
    Party Pilipinas is a really cheap variety show here in the Philippines…
    They are forever loser compare to their rival show ASAP XV…
    How can they do such a stupid thing..??
    Using OUR RAIN to increase viewers..??
    I knew it from the start that GMA – the station where Party Pilipinas come from – really has a greed when it comes to tv ratings…
    I so hate GMA..!!!!they are BIG copy-cats…!!!

    I know Mark Bautista is a dead ringer for Rain but I didn’t know that they could fool the Filipinos just to get a few lousy ratings. Besides if the Rain fans bought this, then they didn’t know that Rain left for Korea on the 15th and there’s a 0000.0% chance of Rain showing up again in Manila just to guest in that show on that day. Also, Rain’s TV drama will be shown on TV5 and not on GMA7. See, this is why we do not subscribe GMA7 here in LA. They’re a bunch of corny people and they have a dry sense of humor. I’d rather subscribe to KBS world than to spend money on a worthless TV station. You’d be surprised what they show at KBS: dramas and documentaries with English subtitles, TV varieties also w/ subs. The only programs unsubbed are the hourly news but at 5:00 pm they have the English World news version. The MNet program is not subbed but who cares, you don’t need it just to see them sing and dance.

    Kongsao… I’m sorry, but please go easy on your words. You weren’t here in Manila and you’re only basing everything on media reports and fan accounts which are not always 100% accurate.

    I kind of did not understand your paragraph about Mo Twister. I don’t understand because Mo has nothing but good words about Rain (shocking, but true). He has been consistent about that. Unless you’re talking about someone else (the two-faced part)?

    — I know he would still want to go to the Philippines for vacations. He loves it here. For a concert… there’s another side of the question and that is, is if a Filipino promoter would still be interested. 😐

    On Topic: I was one of those who tuned in, not because I thought Rain is showing up (I saw him leave the country, so I know he’s not here anymore) but because I want to see how they are going to pull off the Rain number. I find the joke to be pretty bad, not because they fooled people but because it’s simply very corny. I find it funny how people go at great lengths being angry at Party Pilipinas just for an obvious joke. If I am a fan, I would be happy because that only means Rain has enough star value in this country for his name to be used to gain ratings. 🙂

    All I can say is, the situation here was very complicated (it goes beyond a simple miscommunication issue) so to be putting the blame just on one side of the coin is quite unfair. Both sides have their mistakes. I’m sorry that I touched on a very sensitive topic to some. It’s just that, being someone who was there to witness everything, I sort of understood both sides. I love Rain, but I have come to accept that even he makes mistakes, too. He’s only human.

    I have to agree wiith Pau about Mo Twister. As I’ve said on the previous interview post of Mo with Rain (the longer version), He is well known as a “celebrity basher” and I was surprised to hear good words from him about Rain. I was really worried what would come out of his mouth the moment he talked with Rain, what will his comments and how bad it will be after he interviewed Rain…But to my surprise….He have nothing but praises to Rain and defending Rain on not showing up in the presscon.
