10.18.10 [JoyNews] The press release refuting the claim by ‘Andrew Kim’ who has filed a lawsuit against Rain

In connection with ‘Andrew Kim’s malevolent suit against Rain, including his vicious slander on Rain’s name, law firm ‘Faw’ makes our position in Rain’s behalf about the claim of ‘Andrew Kim’ who was the promotor at that time of Rain’s canceled concert in LA as follows.

Issue 1 : Did Rain borrow $150,000 from Andrew Kim?

‘Andrew Kim’ casing this controversy was the promotor in LA at that time of Rain’s World Tour, and he just had transaction with Rain’s prior agent, or with ‘Star M’ which had the right to the concert, so ‘Andrew Kim’ had no transaction with Rain.

That’s why no money is owed to Rain and ‘Andrew Kim’ as Rain had no transaction with Andrew Kim’.

Andrew Kim is also saying, “I have no I.O.U.”, so our law firm will press Andrew Kim to assume legal responsibility for the action corresponding to his intentionally spreading such false information.

Issue 2 :  Did Rain neglect to prepare for his concert, indulging in gambling in Las Vegas at a time when he was about to hold a concert?

Rain visited USA on June 17th, 2 weeks before his concert in LA (June 30th).

After that, Rain spent busy days, holding a press conference with newspaper reporters, interviewing with the performance team, promoting for the concert, and concentrating on practicing. Meanwhile, Rain progressed meetings with 6 agents including Warner Brothers for choosing a contractor in USA.

Ran had visited Las Vegas on the 24th and 25th for two days and one night in order to greet his acquaintances he had friends of while he worked in USA and to attend his birthday party arranged by them.

But, by that time, litigation related to the cancellation of his concert in Hawaii which became an issue, caused Rain to participate in his birthday party for only a short time and to return to his hotel, so he had never had a gambling problem reaching a serious level mentioned by some press reports and didn’t even have time to do that.

Some newspapers are pretending to meet those concerned in the fact and to confirm it, but we’ll legally hold them accountable, making clear the fact through making sure whether their stories are true or not.

Issue3 : Has Rain gotten legal advice to get the green card ?

Rain was ever advised only on his ‘Walking Visa’ which is essential for inroading into the American market.

Rain was advised only on advance arrangements for his overseas activities, and he has never been advised to avoid joining the army, or to get the green card.

There is no reason for Rain, who has a greater future than anyone else and is loved by his fans while expectations are tremendous for him, to avoid joining the army even with giving up his Korean nationality.

In the circumstances where a reputation has been acquired as a hardest working singer and actor for more than ten years, who that has common sense would do such a thing?

We’ll bring a firm legal action against ‘Andrew Kim’ because we can no longer do nothing about his vicious slander on Rain’s good name.

Issue 4 : Why is ‘Andrew Kim’ bringing such a suit against Rain?

To fix the responsibility on ‘Star M’, JYP, Rain, etc. when World Tour was cancelled, ‘Andrew Kim’ lodged compensation claims against about more than 20 people including Rain, which has been well known in the media many times.

And, the contract related to LA concert clearly specified ‘Korean Commercial Arbitration Board’-sponsored procedures should be prioritized before lawsuit. For this reason, There had been a request to have the case transferred to the ‘Korean Commercial Arbitration Board’ by JYP and Rain, and then U.S. court accepted their request.

So, ‘Andrew Kim’ is only keeping repeating his ridiculous claim when he is at a disadvantage in the lawsuit as it has been decided that the case should be transferred to the ‘Korean Commercial Arbitration Board.

In the case related to the cancellation of World Tour that was brought against Rain by Star M, it has recently been determined no blame is imputable to Rain, so there is no need to comment about apportioning the blame.

It is only a fraud which blows upon Rain’s face in order to turn the suit to Andrew Kim’s advantage, taking advantage of the fact Rain is a famous entertainer.

Rain has done nothing to be ashamed of each report and is full of confidence about this, he has recently brought civil action and criminal prosecution against some press reports and reporters who have been engaging in malicious reports, and he has staked out his position on the issue and called for tighter controls against them by saying “I’m not going to take it lying down anymore just because of a celebrity.”

    i feel a strong sense of relief after reading this…its about time someone stand up and clear his name. all these law suits just made me sick as of how people can go through, defaming others who they called “friends” for their benefits. either way, nothing has been of concrete evidences as yet, but im glad someone has started to speak out for him. he is innocent till proven otherwise, and until then, i believe in him. hope justice will overcome all!!!

    None of this surprises me, I just wish they would back off him. The bad thing about all this is as he gains more in fame the more they try to knock him down. I have all faith in you my brother. MUAH!

    None of Mr. Kim’s allegations make sense. All of these is nothing but to defame him because everybody knows that he is still soaring way up to the top more than any other Korean artists in their history. Nothing could stop his popularity but what they did could in some way affect him immensely. Somehow for me the allegations are senseless, far from the person that we all know Rain to be. I have faith in Rain and I believe in his principles and philosophy in life. He would have not build up his good reputation for such vices that he knows could ruin his life, dreams and future.

    This was a breath of fresh air. I wish people would just leave him alone. We all know that Rain is innocent. And if this Andrew Kim is still on this lawsuit against the cancellation of his concert, then he needs to move on.

    dont believe this man. Maybe he’s suing rain because of the cancelled concert that he lose in a trial court not really because of a debt. Darn it, stop pestering Rain already, he had enough.regarding this military issue, i thought rain has made it clear thru his Fugitive press conference that he’ll go next year or so?
    why wud he need green card to avoid it since he made it perfectly clear that he’ll go?seriously,this is just a gossip all ab out he can think of out his nut head here It doesn’t make scene what so ever… Like everybody else said, that Kim guy is so very fishy!! Let me break it down for ya!

    1.) Why wait 3 years to sue Rain?
    2.) Why go to the US to sue Rain?
    3.) It’s impossible for Rain to “ran out of money!”
    4.) Wasn’t this Kim guy the guy that sue Rain back in 2007 for canceling his concert?” He lost so he wants to find more stuff to sue Rain again…! WTF
    5.) This guy Kimmy Kim Kim is straight up STUPID! He’s going back and forth with his story. Like for real dude, if you gonna sue somebody, at least know what you gonna lie about and keep it one story. LOL! this sound so fishy to me out suddently her come up to rain about his lawsuit and the milarity serive of getting a creencard what reder rain have or not rain already say he will going to military service dram this MR. Kim are that this Andrew Kim guy was the guy that sued Rain and JYP for canceling concerts in LA 2007, and he lost that case. I bet this guy want to get some revenge on Rain now. I hate the way he tries to make look bad when he said Rain wants to get green card to “avoid” military service. My Korean friends all have green cards, but they still have to go military service in Korea anyway. Andrew Kim is an Korean, but why he has to sue Rain in the U.S? He did it because he already lost the case in Korea, so now he wants to get his revenge on Rain in the U.S. He said he bet “his entire life savings” on the concert, then how come he still has a lot of money to lend Rain. after 2007 -Why would the guy wait three years before he filed a lawsuit? -$150,000 in cash? Dude if the canceled concert was bad enough why give $150,000 IN CASH if you already lost money. And how the heck was he able to cash out $150,000 anyway?!
    -I doubt this even happened. Rain makes millions out of his movie and music careers, he can easily pay off the $150,000.plus rain was with MBlaq boy training and other concert he have to does how the HECK my question rain gambling rain a world star that who know exzactly to be put all his money by gambling and goes to mr. kim and borrow his money what this so fishy here top this The Green Card gives him only the right to leave and work in USA for 3, 5 or 10 what that got to do what rain say about don”t want to leave to miliatiry servivice this all boo crap shit he making all up!! and for the pass 3 year just bring all these up OMG!! u must have an eye money trying to do anything just sue rain money but you know what rain anit THAT STUPID !! SERIOULY this guy just wanted full charge of rain if u play hard on rain rain well be hard on you too and why 3 years after now?? make no sent and all thies sond so fishy to me rain not going to let it slide he have won his case so he will going to won again i hope this time rain put his to death! and STOP bugging rain GOD DAMIT

    Don’t really have the time now. Just passing by the site to check on Rain. I’m so glad they responded to the allegations one by one. This makes Rain’s position clearer. I’m sick and tired of these reporters too. They and Andrew Kim doesn’t seem to have any morals at all!
    Ji-hoon, be strong take care of yourself…and may I add pray. See you later guys.

    As the press release itself says “who that has common sense would do such a thing?” And may I say too that “who that has common sense would believe such things”?
