Break me off a piece of that chocolate

I’m sure most of you have already seen pics of Rain rocking his newly slimmed (10 kg!) chiseled body — achieved through a strict chicken-breast-and-veggie diet — in preparation for his upcoming Ninja Assassin role. But what about this “Chocolate Abs” pic released on the 14th? (Dude, I don’t come up with the names, I just report ’em.)

Rain is currently in Berlin working on Ninja Assassin, dreaming of samgyupsal (pork belly).

It's so bizarre to see how Rain has changed over the years. He increasingly, INCREASINGLY becomes weirder and weirder as time passes.

At least he's not wearing those humongous rimmed glasses and he's finally doing something better with his hair than that parting in the middle thing he was doing. :S.

And... I love your music. :) I was browsing online for Humming Urban Stereo stuff, and found your site and I wholeheartedly agree with you about your love for Kang Ji Hwan. :) You are a girl with good taste!

DANG. Check out that stomach! ** Nice.
Hopefully Ninja Assassin doesn't flop so bad like Speed Racer.

Well, maybe it has something to do with the French term for washboard abs/a six-pack -- which is a tablet of chocolate. That is, you know how a bar of chocolate has all of those little squares? Voilà!

Ohh, haha, that makes sense (newbie). I just thought it was the color palette. But that makes sense. (The article did also mention the term "washboard"; maybe it was being multilingual.)

and thanks, ok-jk! have you entered my Oldfish giveaway?

There is the term "Waschbrettbauch" in german. You could translate it with "washboard stomach" and it describes a pretty flat and muscular stomach.

I... can't... leave... this site! :) It's addictive.

Newbie - haha, that's a great interpretation! So creative!

I was just thinking how weird it is that he calls himself Magic Feet, his clash w/ Colbert... and now chocolate abs? Um... it's getting weirder and weirder, but I guess we can all appreciate his hardwork into his body though!... -_-.

But on the other hand, I'd prefer a man who is highly talented in his profession (i.e., KANG JI HWAN!!!!!) than just a good-looking face/bod.

JavaBeans: will enter OldFish giveaway now.

PS. On a random side note to JavaBeans and to whomever is interested in Hong Gil Dong... I was reading your "reflection" on Hong Gil Dong's last episode, and I agree with you. There is simply no other way I could have imagined the series ending, because it would have been too cliched or sappy. So though it was bittersweet and sad, it was an excellent and ingenious ending to a pretty good sageuk series.

But about the connection of the first episode to the entire series - I don't think it was necessarily Eun Hye's story that was portrayed b/c if you think about the portrayal of Yi Nok, she was so polished and "cool", when really, Eun Hye knows the clumsy reality of Yi Nok.

So I think it was just a kudos to the idea of the LEGEND of Hong Gil Dong being created, rather than a specific reference. As well, HGD has always been known to be more like that clip from the first episode; a well-polished, revolutionary fighter and it's very creative how the writers and director used that traditional stereotype as the 'jumping off point' for the off-beat version of HGD they use in the series.

Okay. Back to Rain though! Haha.

hey javabeans!
i was reading your post about G.I.Joe and Jun Ji Hyun being in Blood the Last Vampire and when i checked on imdb, i found out that she's not playing a random school girl warrior chick but the *Lead Role*! i'm surprised/glad she's playing Saya but like you, i'm a little sad Hollywood keeps typecasting Asian actors. =/
and Rain's new body is too hot to handle. (i thought i should mention something relevant to this post ^__^ )

i agree, rain is getting wierder and wierder O_O. I remember once upon a time when I regarded him as a normal, respected celebrity... but now, I don't know, now I see him as just a dude struggling to make it in hollywood, whose sense of style is deteriorating really fast. Maybe there's something about him that screams "desperate" thats very unbecoming of him. Everybody's talking about how many advances he's making in hollywood, but honestly, these advances look kind of superficial and not very promising to me. In fact, while people are saying he's at the top of his game, to me it seems the exact opposite. Ever since he left jyp, his fiasco of a world tour, and his stint at hollywood, he seems to be on a rapid decline, actually. But anyhows, he actually looks good in that picture, and its been a long while since I've been able to say that! Even though, yeah, his muscles are a little bit TOO much.

i think Rain's image is also sadly affected by how certain people choose to report him. you can only make up a certain amount of crap before people start believing it. sad, but true.

Smiley6yr: I just finished watching Hong Gil Dong and I'm pretty wowed by the talents of Kang Ji Hwan. I started watching Capital Scandal, but decided to pursue Dal Jas Spring instead - I've heard so many good things about Capital Scandal, but I think after Hong Gil Dong, my emotions need a break from such intensity! :) Dal Jas seems to be a cute, light hearted comedy...

Ter/Cj: Definitely agree. Rain is getting weirder and weirder, and it's almost like watching a train crash - horrible to watch, but you just can't tear your eyes away.

After I read the comments I just realized the term "chocolate body" - yes I was also thinking that it refers to the skin tone...but damn, I do want to break the choco bar! :P

I don't find his abs interesting though..it's kinda scary for my liking.

Rain is kinda famous in my country, esp after he starred on a hair shampoo CF, where he danced and said a line, "My name is Rain"
LOL..and what's the relation between introducing his name and his dandruff -free scalp? Some people does have weird idea of making commercial ad.

The french term for this "chocolate abs" that Javabeans discribe is called "tablette de chocolat". And Rain has it well done...hmm just imagine your fingers caressing dans les tablette de chocolat, LOL!

Chocolate abs because they resemble bars of chocolate or because it's so yummy? Or both ?

To pinayfrench : I would rather say "caresser les tablettes de chocolat" - it's less painful than what you wrote!

I think Rain is much hotter now than fully dressed in "Full House" (what horrible, horrible clothes he wore).

Rain is a good looking kid and I liked him a lot in A Love To Kill. I respect him being such an 'overachiever'. But this picture of his body is weird. I have seen six packs etc.... but nothing like this. It just doesn't look right. Anyway, Go Rain. I like your optimistic spirit and energy.
