In fact, they are a hit in USA (they were already a hit in Asia). Thanks to the Jonas Brothers who tagged them along at their concert tours.

Wonder Girls opened for the Jonas Brothers’ concert tour with their song “Nobody”. With five beautiful Korean girls, singing and dancing, America was surely mesmerized. Continue reading ‘Wonder Girls Ain’t Nobody’

Rain Interview in Comic-Con

Rain and his Ninja Assassins co-stars were at the Comic-Con last Thursday  (July 24th) to promote their movie, sign autographs,  and answer questions. Rain was interviewed by two reporters  in English and he had  a hard time answering them.  Rain‘s comprehension of the questions and the ability to speak another language was the object of ridicule in POPSEOUL site.

Rain indeed messed up on his English and his answers were way off the questions but despite the language difficulty, Rain managed to wear a smile at all times even on the question that made him uncomfortable (How does a Ninja perform sex with his girlfriend?). Below are the videos of his interview.

For people who can understand and speak English well might find Rain‘s answers funny, but that doesn’t give people the right to make fun of the person who tried hard to speak another language. There is a difference between intelligence and arrogance,  there is also a similarity between  arrogance and ignorance.

A person of intelligence does not make fun of someone who cannot speak a foreign  language well, instead, this person understands and appreciates the fact that someone is trying to learn and speak the language other than his/her own.

An arrogant person thinks he/she knows it all  and can make fun of someone else’s ability to speak another language ( ex. English). These people are also known as IGNORANTS, like  POPSEOUL and whoever agreed with her. Just because POPSEOUL can scribble some English words and maybe can carry out an English conversation (???), she thinks she is high and mighty in grammar and Merriam-Webster dictionary.

In America, if you try to speak English no matter how wrong it is, you are appreciated. In Korea, if foreigners try to speak Korean, they are appreciated no matter how much they messed it up. If a Korean hears another Korean speaks English, the “another” Korean will be the center of criticism.  JEALOUSY. I guess that’s how POPSEOUL and whoever agreed with her feels about Rain.

I am not Rain fan or member of clouds, I am just a person who happens to be bilingual  and who is simply sick of ARROGANT AND IGNORANT people bashing an individual who put an effort in learning to understand, read, and speak another language , specifically English.
