Stephen Colbert: Let it RAIN!

Stephen Colbert: Let it RAIN!

Rain, it is time to reign you in…

Stephen Colbert covers Korean R&B phenom Rain in a hilarious music video parody called “Singin’ in Korean,” where — what else — he sings in Korean himself!

Hilarious!!!!! Why so random? Rain beat out Colbert in Time Magazine’s poll of 100 most influential people of the year. The K-pop sensation had almost half a million votes, over 100,000 more than Colbert, who placed runner-up.

    Wow JJ! Thanks for posting this. I thought Amaya and I were the only Colbert nuts on the board. I really need to see it again, because I was laughing so hard I missed parts of it!

  • Amaya

    “Hot Lips”! Jane Fonda would agree with that statement! Hey OC!

  • Anon.

    There are no words… Stephen Colbert is a genius!

  • L

  • http://www.justjared.com cook

    Hilarious!

    Much Love JJ, he is the best!!!

  • ALI

    I saw this on TV. I was dying of laughter

  • selwyse

    holy CRAP………….this is AWESOME!!!!! This is a double treat for me, being both a Colbert and *sheepish* K-pop fan!! ^_^

  • d

    LOL that is hilarious. i’m really impressed w/ his korean pronunciation AND his singing!!! that was a great parody of k-pop music videos. how in the world did rain get #1???

  • me

    -I can understand why Rain beat out steve. Rain is very popular in korea, in other asian country. Seriously, Americans is so self-centric, that they don’t even realize that there are so many other things/culture out there.

  • me

    ps. Rain is like the Justin Timberlake in Korea.

  • Lo

    I loooove Rain :)
    Oh my goodness…..
    he is better than JT any day :)
    Rain is

  • Lo

    Rain is love

  • its raining!

    omg..tat was so funny, and i could totally understand why rain beat steve in the polls….its RAIn! he has all of asia supporting him..for all the ppo tat don’t understand….dont think the whole world just =America …tats so ignorant..and stupid..

  • jen

    found some related music here
    http://www.seeqpod.com great site for this kinda stuff

  • Desdemona

    Oh God.. I almost spit out my drink.. He’s hilarious!

  • selwyse

    ok, you know what, can’t you celebrate Rain’s win without dumping on Americans?

    “Seriously, Americans is so self-centric, that they don’t even realize that there are so many other things/culture out there.”

    I’m American and I knew about Rain. So, STFU!! by the way, that stands for “shut the fuck up” because you obviously don’t speak English well and just came in here to trash America anyway.

  • selwyse

    Actually, Rain fans should probably be thanking Stephen Colbert. He just raised Rain’s profile by 1,000% in the States. Here’s hoping he’ll have Rain on his show when Rain performs in NYC this summer!

  • rach

    What the heck is he sayin’? That’s not even Korean.
    I do agree w/ selwyse.
    Americans never know there’re lots of other cultures and more beautiful things out there.

  • colbertfever

    Colbert rocks!!! His show is THE news…

  • http://www hey Col.

    behave!
    kimchi is more serviceable to people than you!

  • Stella

    Thanks JJ for the video. I love Stephen Colbert’s show and Rain is a great artist.

  • Idleness

    I sense some of Michael Jackson msytique there.

  • DK

    haha that was freakin’ hilarious. *sigh. gotta love Colbert man. Both he and Rain deserved to be in the polls.

  • SKSK

    That is jokes :D laughing my ass off right now
    Actually didnt know who Stephen Colbert was until this
    Guess it is a good way of getting publicity :P

  • z654.MY

    WILL RAIN’S ANOTHER MV publish NEXT TIME. GREAT JOB YOU DONE

  • K

    didn’t know much about Mr. Colbert fm the east part of the world … he’s funny though

  • fp

    i’m korean and rain is not really my cup of tea.
    that was hilarious. hahaha.

  • Sun Yee

    Oh my gosh! I couldn’t believe this when I saw it the other day. I mean, his Korean actually sounds very good. Believe it or not, Rain has actually been on MTV and he toured with Omarion because Omarion loves how Rain (he is actually called BI in Korea because BI is korean for rain) dances. Anyways, I love Stephen’s video and I love his show! Eat his ice cream, it’s delicious! An young!

  • Sun Yee

    p.s.

    Rain is called the Usher of Korea, too because Usher is R&B and that’s what Rain sings. If you want to hear a good song, “Slowly” is good.

  • Douglas

    HAHAHA! Stephen is a Genius! And also…seriously who the f*** is Rain?

    Whoever he is, he sounds like a Korean version of Timberlake, Usher…and Whoop-de-fukcn-doo, he sounds like crap like the rest of them…How he beat Colbert, I don’t know…

  • http://deleted Maldita

    Time should re-rank! Colbert should be number one after this parody! CLASSIC! Sorry, Rain, the white man’s got you down pat!

  • fg

    well an adult making fun on a young man, tried his best though …. the 30% korean pronounce & dance okido

  • jl

    well it’s more publicity for the both of them. its understandable how rain would beat colbert… colbert is only influential with a fraction of americans; whereas, rain is known throughout asia. funny parody, colbert is a clever man.

  • http://msn toby

    rain is a very famous singer in asia . we support him because he may not be the most talent people but he’s the most hard working people . we respect him because he has a very good personality and a kind heart . i agree that mr. colbert just raised rain’s profile in the states . i also wish he’ll invite rain on his show when he performs in NYC this summer .

  • Kris

    Wow, Alessandra. Nice to judge the music when you never heard it and don’t understand the language! I’m a Korean American and I am not a Rain fan but there is no reason to hate on him just because he beat Colbert on an ONLINE poll for an English magazine. What an ignorant thing to do. You do know Colbert’s show is to poke fun at being biased and arrogant right? Oh yea, btw no one gives a crap if you called yourself anything. You aren’t famous.

    On a side note Stephen Colbert is awesome, his dancing was hilarious and his Korean was horrendous but obviously he wasn’t trying to hard. I am surprised he went as far as to even listen to a song that Rain did and then to parody it = )

  • Is

    Hey, American, please do appreaciate the other cultures.

  • Alessandra

    I have heard his music (youtube anyone?) and he sounds just like anyone else but in Korean. He can dance, I’ll give him that……but he sounds like every other generic shit out there…..which we don’t need more of. I’m not American by the way. Lalalalalalalalalalalala

  • Jamie

    As a Korean, I hope we can be civil.

    But if people are not civil to you, I hope you can forgive others. If we forgive, we will reap enormous rewards in heaven, and will receive God’s forgiveness for our own sins.

    But if we do not forgive, neither will God forgive us of our own sins.

    There will be mean people in this world, but they are the ones who will not share in God’s eternal kingdom. Please fogive them.

    God bless.

  • Is

    As a Chinese, I totally agree with Jamie.

  • Fenix

    I just read about this and just saw the video and I thought it was hilarious.

    I’m Korean and I’m in the U.S. Army at the moment and I can understand that people of different cultures don’t understand each other. Alot of my peers come from small towns where they have never seen an Asian person aside from what they’ve seen on television. They think I know Kung-Fu(Chinese) or Karate(Japanese) and that I speak with a funny accent. I just think SOME people have to broaden their horizons and overcome ignorance.

    One thing I know about alot of Koreans is that we are quick to jump the gun. Korean media probably saw the clip of Stephen Colbert mad in the beginning of the segment and parodying his video but didn’t realize or try to find out what his show was about. It was able to cause a stir so they ran with it.

    Also, I just think people need to calm down and think. It was a joke. Get over it.

  • Rikka

    Stephen Colbert sucks!!! Rain deserves to top the poll.. Who is Stephen Colbert by the way? An ignorant old fuckin man!!

  • Kyung Jin

    LOL. First off I’m Korean and found this HILARIOUS!!!~

    To the ignorant and self-righteous Koreans/Asians out there that feel offended by this video… It’s a joke… So just laugh at it… Seriously… Unless your Rain himself, there’s not much of a reason to get mad at Steven.

    Steven… You’re the best. Keep making those vids. I’ll be looking forward to another one!

  • krn boi

    man, krn press has to cool off
    im a krn in the bay area
    laughin his ass off at dis vid
    But krn press was quick to find out nd was enraged
    However i agree with de comments made by most krns up dere about how we should all just laugh bout it cuz its just a joke by none other den STEPHEN COLBERT

    its hilarious that rain beat colbert on de poll, tho
    nd btw, mr. colbert’s krn pronunciation isnt bad at all for a white man

    “dont think the whole world just =America …tats so ignorant..and stupid.. ”

    Don’t think the whole world revolves around your opinion dumdass that is ignorant and idiotic.

    And America being ignorant? ARE YOU F@$KING JOKING? YOU ASIANS ARE IGNORANT. YOU GUYS DIDN’T EVEN VOTE(10) FOR ANYBODY ELSE THEN RAIN! JUST SENDING CHAINMAILS AND POSTS GIVING URLS OF RAIN AND OTHERS ABOVE RAIN. THAT IS CALLED IGNORANCE.

    Totally agree with this. I’m Thai though.

    I’ve just watched the clip. So funny!!!!! Hahahahahahaha….lol. Laugh to death!
    Stephen Colbert is not bad, is he? :-D
    I reckon with hotlips though. lol :-D

  • america is not homogenous

    It’s ridiculous to say stuff like this —> “Americans is so self-centric, that they don’t even realize that there are so many other things/culture out there”

    1.) America is not a homogeneous country. America is composed of groups of people from MANY different cultures and countries. While there are small places in the country that aren’t culturally diverse, they are becoming smaller and fewer. Even outside of major cities, most Americans regularly meet people from other countries and cultures.

    2.) I’m an American. I am not Asian at all. I can read and write 한글…
    내가 한국말을 할 수 있고 김치를 좋아합니다.

    i luv both rain & stephen : D
