Ninja Assasin - The Rise of Rain

Hellsya! Rain's new movie, "Ninja Assasin," is due out this November. You may know Rain as only the premier pop artist in Korea, or possibly have seen him playing Taejo Togokahn in "Speed Racer," or as Stephen Cobert's nemesis on the Colbert Report. The boy may be a newcomer on the Hollywood big screen but has already had plenty of acting chops with modern classic Korean dramas like, "Full House," and feature films such as, "I'm a Cyborg and That's Okay." .

I have high hopes for Rain in this flick. Judging from the trailer (below), looks like he may just be Bruce Lee reincarnated! Rain's real life reads like a melodrama so he has lots to draw from. Such as his mother's untimely death in 2000 just before he got his first major recording contract. With such intensity in life as in drama, he can easily be the new millennium James Bond. Oh, and in "Ninja Assassin" he gets to kiss the girl! That means more girls (and maybe boys) in his future. Thank you, Lord Buddha.

Watch what took to get so ripped! Also, I really respect that Rain didn't alter his eyes through plastic surgery like the majority of South Korean actors.

Here Rain trains choreographed fights with the 87 Eleven crew (who've worked on 300, Watchmen, Matrix and Borne).
