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.

The only person who should be in court is JYP the management company, we all know that korean stars are NOT in charge the managagement companys are the ones who should be held accountable. Hang in there Rain, you are the greatest!!!!!

I can't believe that some people can say bad things about this beautiful human being who is Rain.
Rain he has been, is and will always be a model to follow, this kind of negative comments are just lies, rain is well known not only in Asia but also in many countries around the world and each time he has a project to make in his career, he performed with all the joy, pride and dedication than many other people I know.

Rain you're fans love you soo much and don't worry for that kind of comments that only seek to harm someone as dedicated as you

Rain is innocent and does not deserve this. He has NEVER cancelled a concert and has performed with a broken arm and when ill in order not to disappoint fans (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCZBWUwzLOU). The Korean entertainment companies have their stars under contract, control their careers, often control their personal lives, and take most of their money. Rain was a victim of the managers and promoters who wanted to use his reputation for profit. He signed contracts committing to give his best performance and he was always prepared to do that. When the promoter failed to have the stage ready and cancelled the concert in LA, Rain begged to go on with just a bare stage. It was bad enough that his reputation and career were damaged by the original cancellations, but now he is being vicitmized a second time in American courts whose juries fail to understand the powerless position of stars under the Korean management system. All the best to Rain - I hope people will come to know the truth about him.

Wow, xcalibur...I'm an American and I care who Rain is. He is one of the best Hip-Hop artists I've seen in a long time. And the reason his "western" career isn't coming on yet is because English is one of the hardest languages to learn. I would like to see you film an entire movie (talking about "Ninja Assassin" ppl) in a language that you have just started learning. Your being judgmental and unfair. You couldn't do any of the things that Rain is doing. So please stop talking like you know how to sing, dance, and act. thx!
