This journal called ‘Korean Masculinities and Transcultural Consumption’ has been written by ‘Jung Min’ who is a professor at Victoria college in Australia.
This journal is full of descriptive passages about how the maleness Korean male stars including Rain have shown is spreading across borders, and reforming and gaining acceptance in each country, by regional fandom culture.
This journal is also being used as a major teaching material explaining the Korean Wave at the media communication department of Gold Smith college in England, and at the culture media department of Melbourne college in Australia.
Meanwhile, Rain has been receiving attention as the representative of the Korean Wave Stars as he has starred in Ninja Assassin since he was snapped up by Hollywood to appear in Speed Racer.
