    What a nice name he had taken up for his western career. I am so glad he did not go for john, david, michael etc.

    It is sad that the foreign actors have to take up western names but they have to if they want to make it in hollywood….

    Thanks, Jared!

    Yes, I’m another who became addicted to Korean dramas through “Full House” and Bi (Rain) on AZN TV. Comcast Cable discontinued AZN TV from its channel line-up three weeks ago, and I am having terrific withdrawals as I don’t find most of television interesting.

    I’m an over sixty woman (with a university student) who loves Bi (Rain) and, hopefully, things will work out for him in film in the U.S. and, also, be successful in gaining a broader interest with his music. He has an interesting life story and is multi-talented!

    As with the previous poster, I want to see him with shorter hair though he must have it long for projects. Congratulations, Bi!
