Rain lies about height. Fans ’round the world cry.

Breaking News: It has just been deemed that Rain has probably lied about being at least TWO CENTIMETERS taller than he actually is.

I know. This changes everything.

Rain was captured in the photograph below with Runaway co-star Lee Jung-jin, off the set while in Japan. This has spurred some controversy with netizens who have pointed out that Lee Jung-jin’s profile says he’s 183cm, while Rain has always touted his 185cm height. Clearly, someone’s not so good at math.

Fans who have actually met Rain in person are putting up comments that he’s at least 180cm, while some reports are insisting that it’s the camera angle that’s creating the optical illusion that Lee is taller.

Okay, everyone say it with me now…WTF?

I know that Korean celebrities have all sorts of profile information out there, and that fans feel ownership over such information, but the level of betrayal and counter-support over two centimeters is…just…

Now, if they were talking about a 2cm difference ELSEWHERE…that’d be a different story.

Celebrities lie about their profile all the time. Whether it be about age, weight, height, etc. It's really not that serious.

What? I understand some of them lie about college degrees but height? He so darn tall anyway so 2cm isn't an awful lot

I don't think his fans will mind it one bit even if he admitted he lied about his height. Wait... did he say it himself or was it made up by netizens and people who post his so called biodata online.

And that first pic is of him is horrible - he looks drugged out

What??? He's 2 cm shorter??? That's it! I'm canceling my membership to his fanclub!

Hahaha, Korean fans need to get a life, there are better things to worry about.

P.S. I do agree with you, if it was a difference of 2 cm elsewhere, then we have a case kkk

Either way he's taller than me... and yummy.

Well, here in the U.S. celebrities lie all the time about height. I consider 2cm to be more on an embellishment or exaggeration... Hardly a crime.

I laughed when I heard the theory about the camera angle, but it may have been true. Fans have been trying to prove his height like crazy: http://news.naver.com/main/read.nhn?mode=LSD&mid=shm&sid1=106&oid=241&aid=0002011225

hahaha, can i just say this made my day? i havent laughed this hard in a while!!

ok, seriously, i dont think theres a point about lying for a 2cm difference or to have a public outcry about such a thing. well, either way, i doubt that he had a choice about what image he wanted to show. that would have been up to his higher ups, no?

HAHA. I so agree. I'd definitely be more concerned about false advertising in other places. 2 cm off the top doesn't really make a difference to me - he's still taller than me.

That's a grave sin! i'm so hearing a lawsuit about it.!

hahaha! so funny! it really doesn't matter at all.
who cares ,.Rain has reached that certain point of confidence and success anyway.

whether he is 5'10 to 6'2 , his fans will always love him. i guess.

Here in the U.S., 2 cm really is meaning less. But I guess ELSEWHERE is extremely relevant to all people.......O_O.
(You always make me laugh out loud.)
By the way, love, love, love the Taec banner. It always makes me smile. The boy's all ears.

HMPH! Why I do declare! I cannot believe that Rain would lie about his height. TWO WHOLE CM! Really?! I feel so betrayed and hurt. Where is the love? Where is the honesty?

*snort/snicker*

Why do Koreans make a big deal out of this? I know cultural differences and all but when I see people going crazy about height with American stars. . . .well all the fans would be viewed as idiots.

Oh, Girlfriday. You naught git. :P

*climbs on soapbox*
Everyone please note; while we may laugh at K-netizens because they appear to be crazier than we are, it is important to remember that we all have our faults and that we all ... um, that we all ...
Pfft. Yeah, they're totally nuts.

i'm not really surprised that he's shorter than some actors... i mean i never thought he was TALL tall. haven't people watched full house? he looks a bit on the short side. or were those his legs? haha maybe the uproar is partially due to the fact that he's built an image and career around his looks and people find out it was "fake"... or whatever

ROFL! It's the hair and shoes. Flat soles and not enough volume in those dark locks of love.^____^ v Rain can make good use of stretches or yoga and who knows even girlfriday's version of ELSEWHERE may benefit as well. Pahehe~

@ Girlfriday:

My friend just sent me this update. Have you seen this?
http://community.livejournal.com/omonatheydidnt/3951609.html

Wholly sheet, this is hilarious. Height is sirius bidness, y'all, and those K-netizens don't play! I'd stay away from reading the poster comments, but the article itself is lulzy enough.

I really don´t think that a 2 cm are the big deal!

It´s still Rain, for the love of God!!
He is still the charismatic, great actor , excellent singer, and hottest korean guy for me, and also for lots of people......
so as long as he doesn´t change his dedication to his work is fine with me!!!

I love you Oppa!

that .73" difference in height is just completely UNACCEPTABLE. Rain should be ashamed of himself!!!

agreed that his shoe size is much more important.. and the size of his hands. if he lied about those, it'd be the end of the world!!!

NOT THAT IT MATTERS but it's been proven this is just a bad angle. There are pictures with him standing eye-to-eye with 186cm Lee Chunhee (both of them barefoot) and he's almost as tall as him.

but like I said it doesn't matter. He's still a giant. haha
