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.

girlfriday,

Your 'ELSEWHERE' comment cracked me up, more than the unbelievable fuss over Rain's height.

Thanks for brightening up our day!

I couldn't care less whether he lied or not. Does that make him any less than he is? NO!

I agree, seriously, K-netizens need to get a life!

hmmm...i guess people should ask themselves: why do i like rain? if it's because he sings and dances well, then how do 2cms. have anything to do with that? if it's because of his acting, how do 2 cms. have anything to do with that? if it's because he's goodlooking/hot, again, how do cms. have anything to do with that? i doubt anyone would take a measuring stick, check if someone's 185cms tall and instantly go gaga over them! seriously, this is a scandal?!

I'm sure this was, in fact, a diabolical and well-managed furor by an inventive and clever public relations department making sure that with all things Rain, he stays in the headlines over something.

Next, it will be the size of the engine in his car, really, it will, and the weight of his back-up singers, or how he squeezes his toothpaste, or, you know, something as important as sanctions against the North!

what's the big deal? 2cm less of 185cm is still tall in height... no matter how tall he is it doesn't make him less as a person. he still looks cute & hot, and is great in everything he does..whether in making music, in acting , business, etc. @[email protected] and what's with the headline? "fans around the world cry because Rain lied about his height" ...seriously?! then why am i not crying here? xD and as i've observed it seemed like, instead it actually made the fans cracked up and laugh because this news is rather ridiculous.

And wouldn't it be even more hilarious if Rain and his management team hold a press conference wherein Rain will apologize (a la Tiger Woods) to his family, friends and most especially his fans for lying about his height?

To this I say - whoody-do pickles. HAHA... gf - you gave me a good laugh - i suppose a 2 cm difference in another place would make a difference... lol

I never really take those stats that the entertainment world releases seriously. really -- I always round my height to the nearest inch anyways. it's just really funny that this made the news. i guess publicity is publicity.

I shared this news to my guy friends and they all agree, "why are females concerned about a guy's height standing upright? we, males, are taller than any one of you females while lying down anyhow." LOL! Good point.

Do you agree girlfriday and javabeans? Anyone else?

I went to his (awfully short) press conference in Jakarta few months ago, and the guy was surprisingly smaller (and shorter) than I expected him to be. My German friend told me in shock "He's average, I thought he supposed to be a lot taller, he's not even 6 ft".

Most of the reporters in that event were also surprised (and a bit disappointed) luckily I'm not his fan, so it doesn't matter.

wow!!! people consider this news worthy? no wonder the world turned out like 5H1T.

I don't think that rain's merit should be judge by his height, and i;m not even a fan. now if memory serves me right, in statistics we often use standard deviations, so i'll put it in to use.

if Rain said he is 185 cm but since people are now saying his 183cm then using the default value of +/-2 SD then i therefore conclude he is between 181 - 187 cms. i'm a genius!!!!

otherwise, i love your wit GF and the last line was a sure clincher. this post just made my day!!!

Dear fans,

Do we love him for his height? His talent? For me it does not matter! Nothing will change! Sometimes we push them to lie, because we cheer the tallest, the handsome, the beautiful face and they need to lie, to do surgeries because that's how sometimes we want them to be! We need to love them for what they do for us! ENTERTAIN!!!! YES ENTERTAIN!!!!

I don't think Rain lies about his height !!!

Please be realistic folk. Think about your height and weight measured from different scales at hospital / school / home / ID Card. They all not exactly the same and normally swing/differ about 1-2 cm./kilos.

My only man "So Ji Sub ssi" is 182 cm. and he is at least 3 cm. smaller than Rain.

So What Rain put in his profile with 185 cm. is not a lie.

yes I dont think he is 185, especially after seeing him in ninja assassin you could tell he is probably around 180. Maybe after wearing platform shoes like some other actors he is 185. , His height doesnt even matter, its not like he will be any less talented if he were shorter, I just wish he and others wouldnt lie about it

oh dear,i thought he didn't lied.
There’s no way he would lie (only) about 2 cm..
And you couldn't judge someones height just because 'you think/see' it is..
Even with a height indicator/something to measure it,we are often made a wrong measurement.

I'm not his fan,but i HATE when someone being ACCUSED.
Yeah, IT'S BEEN PROVEN that THIS IS JUST a BAD ANGLE!

Actually the problem is not the height,but the lied thing..
And the truth is : HE DIDN'T LIED.

All of u are so idiot if u guys didn't know how camera angle can really affect that thing..
There's so much pictures of him that LOOKS TALLER than Lee Jung Jin too.. -_-

Rain is 1.83 without shoes that is what the measurement of the army test throw when he was 19, then he said he was 1.85 when the lady ask again how tall he was now, is that posible to grow 2 cm after 19 years old? actors add a few cms to their height is ridiculous. he can be very confusing at an interview he stand just as tall as Daniel Henney who is 1.88 tall and he was wearing like convers shoes. I would have to stand next to him to really say something he looks a lot shorter sometimes that what he claims to be but other times he looks taller.

tell us something new...every actor lies about his/her height...even regular people do so

for example brad pitt wouldnt be any taller than 177cm if he was in barefeet..with his custom made height increasing shoes ( hidden lifts inside the shoe) he manages to fool most people

Just saying, (sorry if this has been pointed out), but isn't Rain wearing shoes with less of a "platform" compared to Jung-jin. Maybe that's the difference, but I don't really see the big issue. They're both great regardless.

this news made me laugh ... what is the big deal? this is not even considered as a news its a waste of time and energy . so what if his 2 cm short , does his height made him lesser of a person? does his 2 cm short affected his performance ? maybe Rain measured wrong or the one who measured him got mistaken... pls give the guy a break ... Rain even if your shorter han how many your still awesome. its so ridiculous being bashed bec of height....
