Hip Korea with Rain (Jihoon Jung) is an interesting documentary by Discovery Channel. This documentary aired earlier this year in Europe and Asia, but not in the US. (We don’t know why.) Anyway, Hip Korea offers a fascinating look at Rain’s global rise in music and acting. It includes interviews with JYP and his childhood. It even talks about the Rain vs Stephen Colbert dance off last year and his role in Speed Racer. (BTW – Rain will also be in the upcoming Ninja Assassins movie. Watch Hip Korea with Rain. Hopefully, they will air it on Discovery Channel in the US soon.
