Rain says "Lim Soo-jung is my ideal woman"
Korean entertainer Rain has revealed that actress Lim Soo-jung is his ideal type of woman.
The 27-year-old singer and actor made the remark while appearing as a guest on popular SBS talk show "Steel Heart" which aired on April 4.
On the show, Rain was offered to take part in a segment called "Surprise Ideal Woman World Cup," selecting Lim as his ideal woman among many female celebrities including Shin Min-ah, Song Hye-kyo and Han Ye-seul, his co-stars from dramas and films he has appeared in so far.
Rain even asked out Lim, his co-star from the 2006 film "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK," on a date in a video message saying, "Let's have dinner sometime."
When asked by hosts Kang Ho-dong and Lee Seung-gi if he has any time to date, the singer answered, "I have done everything that I need to in private. I gotta do what I gotta do."
Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, has become one of the most successful Korean stars in the entertainment business since first starting out as a trainee and back-up dancer at agency JYP Entertainment.
He has released six studio albums to date and performed numerous concert tours throughout Asia and in the U.S. including a sold-out concert at Madison Square Garden.
The singer carried his popularity and artistic talents over to acting, appearing in several hit TV series such as "Sang Doo! Let's Go To School" (KBS, 2003) and "Full House" (KBS, 2004) and making his big screen debut in Park Chan-wook's surrealist comedy pic "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK."
In 2008, he made an impressive crossover to Hollywood with a supporting role in "Speed Racer", which led to his star turn last year in martial arts flick "Ninja Assassin" by the Wachowski Brothers.
Rain is currently promoting his latest album "Back To The Basic" in Korea.
