10.20.10 [NEWS] Rain’s innocence to be proved through “all means possible”

Singer and actor Rain’s agency J.Tune Entertainment has vowed to take all forms of action necessary to prove that the 28-year-old superstar is being falsely accused of holding gambling debt.

The move comes after a Korean-American named Andrew Kim stepped forward on Monday to say that he has filed a lawsuit in the United States against Rain because he has failed to pay him back 150,000 dollars he borrowed for gambling three years ago.

Kim also said Rain has a “heavy gambling habit” and also met with a immigrations officer to obtain a green card in the U.S. which would exempt him from serving Korea’s two-year mandatory military duties.

“Not even one percent [of what Kim has said] is true but we feel extremely wronged because what he is saying is being accepted as the truth and it’s ruining the trust Rain has worked to instill in the public for the past ten years,” J.Tune CEO Cho Dong-won told Asia Economic Daily’s Sports Today during an interview late on Tuesday.

Through their legal representative, J.Tune had issued a prompt response which curtly dismissed all allegations made by Kim, but it has done little to quell the heated debate surrounding one of Asia’s hottest celebrities.

“Both Rain and I are angry over the malicious arguments [made by Kim] but also just over this situation we’re in where the public is half-doubting us,” Cho went onto say.

Then overcome with emotion, a Cho close to tears affirmed that J.Tune “will not stay quiet about this anymore” and “take every legal measure, including filing a counter lawsuit and take all means possible, even if it may have to be an international investigation.”

“By no means is Jung Ji-hoon related to any of this. He’s a sound person. I will make sure to reveal the truth,” Cho said resolutely.

    To JTune:
    My suggestion: Show documents to the public to back up Rain’s stand. Stay calm and organized.

    Err, Gambling?

    Ok, begging your pardon, my American proclivities are going to peek out for a minute…

    Las Vegas is a HUGE attraction here in the States. Maybe as a result, we don’t see gambling as a detrimental practice, as long as its not being practiced in addiction. People who visit Vegas often get what we call “The Fever”, which sounds silly, but is a reality for tourists. People not accustomed to the Las Vegas energy become consumed by it, hence the year-long partying Vegas supplies. Its part of the culture, and it contributes to Las Vegas’ global popularity.

    I’d be more concerned if they caught him engaging in questionable behavior with a waitress in a Hard Rock jacuzzi, but NOT for gambling. I’m sick and tired of people racking up reasons to come down on him, now that military service is coming closer. This lawsuit is part of a vile practice people in the business engage in, to take down entertainers. Since military is Rain’s requirement, all of this controversy is designed to kick him when he’s no longer in the public eye.

    If Rain were smart, he’d keep doing what he’s doing now: Smile and wave, act like its all good. In spite of everything, he’s had a blessed life, abundant with talent, language, money and friends. Call it good and keep living a good life. 🙂

    Do what you have to do and please make it quick. I can’t wait for that guy Kim to take a dose of his own medicine.
