Make it Rain -- Korean Singer Sued for $30 Mil!

3/9/2009 8:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

RainRain -- the so-called "Korean" Justin Timberlake -- is fast becoming better known to American fans for his lawsuits than his singing.

Rain, and a host of people in his camp, are being sued for bailing on a 2007 concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. According to a lawsuit filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court, Andrew Kim had the rights to the proposed concert -- but he took a huge financial hit when Rain bailed.

Rain was also sued in 2007 for missing a gig in Hawaii, allegedly over trademark and technical issues.

Kim is seeking an astronomical $30,000,000 -- plus punitive damages.

I know who Rain is, he's a huge artist in Korea and in the Asian community here. If you go on YouTube you will find plenty of his videos.

However, him backing out of his concerts is a bunch a b-s and I'm glad I didn't buy a ticket this time.

The people making rude comments on Rain getting sued are idiots.
You don't even know what it's like to be a celeb or what reason he may have had for backing out.
Judging someone you don't know is narrow minded.
I certainly hope Rain doesn't actually get sued for that much money. It didn't even cost them that much for the concert.

Wow! Rice eating slanted eye SOB? That's a little harsh..but anyways, I think Rain deserved it and who cares. Wow, same things happen over and over: these famous people. :) Look at Rihanna and Chris Brown....bad, bad, bad.
I actually want to tell Rick, next time you want to make racial comments think again to who you are..we know, you're white and so am I but dude, we're a mutt..mixed with everything there is...that's bad enough, don't be ignorant in public. Thanks!

#15 YOU FORGOT TO MENTION... RAIN IS ALSO COMES FROM THE KOREAN FACTORY OF PRODUCING GAY FEMININE SINGERS WITH FAIRY HAIRCUTS AND FEMALE CHISELED BODY TYPES. IF JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IS "GAY-LIKE" THAN RAIN IS 100% GAY. BTW, HE SUCKS AS A SINGER AND SINGS LIKE A HIGHER PITCHED MILEY CYRUS. NO ONE IN AMERICA CARES ABOUT RAIN WHICH IS WHY HIS US ATTEMPTS AT SOME SORT OF A "WESTERN" CAREER FAILS. YOU CAN THANK JYP ENTERTAINMENT AND THAT MICHAEL JACKSON COPYCAT IDIOT WHO RUNS THAT JOINT FOR "RAIN" REAL NAME JUNG JI HOON.
