1. [+883, -80] If you guys vote me as best reply, I'll go to Rain's press conference when he discharges and throw two eggs at him; one blue, one red.

2. [+609, -18] Yoo Seung Jun: Damn, I should've just gone to the army...

3. [+555, -41] The military is really playing favorites with Rain, aren't they... If he were a regular soldier, he would've been sent to jail. To everyone enlisting soon, make sure you become a celebrity before you enlist.. You see how easy you can have it, right~~~

4. [+103, -4] To save one person named Rain, the military has decided to drop the morale of 600,000 soldiers across our nation. Once Rain discharges, he best not dare talk about his service on TV or ever call himself a world star.

5. [+85, -2] Well, I hate Jung Ji Hoon now

1. [+1,393, -146] A most extraordinary ba$tard if I ever saw one. Has he ever even kept night watch before?

2. [+1,249, -117] Probation ㅋㅋㅋ If this were any other soldier, the military would've done everything they could to throw him in jail in fear of lowering the troop's morale. What the fu*k

3. [+1,037, -94] ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+208, -3] He needed a consequence and they gave him 7 days of probation;; You ba$tards, you just gave him another week of vacation ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+196, -6] Just discharge him. He's not going to serve properly anyway, why waste resources on dressing him as a soldier

  1. So.. The military that gave him special treatment is the one giving him his one week probation? Something's not right here...

    agreed. why waste korean tax dollars on giving the illusion rain is actually serving his military service honourably?

  4. Seems like Rain is a martyr for all of the other celebrity soldiers currently getting thrown on the chopping block for abusing their perks. While he does deserve punishment, the people who are most at fault in this situation are the people who made "celebrity soldiers" a thing in the first place. It shouldn't even be an option. Just throw them all into active duty if they can handle it and if they're needed for a particular role, then they can perform those duties.

  5. When is Rain going to actually speak up? He's really just letting the army handle all of this for him. Honestly I'm starting to wonder how much money he and/or his company is donating to the army, otherwise he would've been thrown in jail in almost an instant. He's going to loose his fame and popularity unless he wants to be labeled as "The guy who got special treatment from the army" for the rest of his life

  6. why "you were" of course his behavior is wrong but if you loved his music continue to love it his bad actions does not alternate his talent or the qualities of his music

    ReplyDelete
  7. Rain should just take the punishment he deserves. By getting special treatment even now, he is digging his grave deeper ><

    ReplyDelete
  8. His career has died, come back just to die again, and cemented itself into the ground. I wonder what he will do when he gets out?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yeah Rain is truly talented.. A really good singer and dancer... one of the ultimate kpop idols

    ReplyDelete
  10. yes he is ,and even thoug his behavior was wrong it's kind of sad that he has to take the blame for all the celebrities who also had privileges but didn't get caught

    ReplyDelete
  11. oh he will never hear the end of this...like EVER !!!! poor Yoo Seung Joon was treated so harshly, as if other celebrities doing those desk jobs are revolutionary.

    ReplyDelete
  12. First off, I don't think celebrities should receive any special treatment -- Rain doesn't deserve to be treated any better than my dad, who also served in the South Korean army. That being said, I can see why celebrities aren't thrown into active service -- being an active soldier is very demanding, and the suicide rates prove it. If something serious happened to a beloved Hallyu star, it could be a public relations disaster for the military.

    Please, let me be logical for a second.


    You're angry that someone isn't being a good citizen? Well, then, it doesn't really make sense to go off and commit a crime...

    ReplyDelete
  14. If not active duty, then public or non-active service with the same treatment as everyone else, at the very least. The role of "celebrity soldier" should not even exist, in my opinion. In that situation, everyone there should be considered a male citizen with equal rights.

    ReplyDelete
  15. If he comes out with a mega hit like PSY all will be forgiven. Because that's what they did with PSY.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It worked for Heechul so why not?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Exactly. He should not be the "example" if others are doing it let them do their own punishments and let them be outted by netizens.

    ReplyDelete
  18. heechul enlisted as a public service soldier tho? don't see why you have to involve him when they're in two different situations

    ReplyDelete
  19. heechul is a public service worker. and rain enlisted at an active duty solider after years of acting like he'd take his military service seriously and then he switched to being a "celebrity solider" after just a few months, while heechul was always honest about how he would serve..

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, Psy sorta tried to get out of fulfilling his military duty and wound up having to enlist again. Which was years before "Gangnam Style" even came about...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Is it really a crime to egg people?


    So food fights are illegal?

    ReplyDelete
  22. It's better that he doesn't say anything at all. There isn't anything for him to say, no excuses can really be made.


    Staying in luxury hotels, getting several days off, being allowed to date, receiving phone calls... It was already bad enough that he enlisted as active duty but still only had to do a radio show. After the training, which he supposedly did well in, he didn't have to do everything that the other soldiers had to.


    And now, he's only given a week of probation when any other soldier would've been thrown in jail.


    Jail is not a nice place to be, obviously. But it's where people go when they break the rules.


    Seriously... If Rain does "speak up" like you want him to, what do you expect him to say? He's already apologized.

    ReplyDelete
  23. But he still gets to go out drinking with his friends and appears in pictures.


    Which is against the rules.


    He may be in public service, but he's still active duty. Heechul is being allowed to break an extraordinary number of rules.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A week of probation is hardly a punishment. It just means that someone is going to be watching his really closely for a whole 7 days.

    They should either have put him in jail like a regular soldier, or taken away his (and all other idol's) special liberties and make him do REAL military work.

    Fuck Leeteuk's musical.
    Fuck Rain's radio show.


    And good riddance to all the celebrities who are shameless enough to accept the special liberties being offered to them. They could easily have just refused the extra days of leave and the offer to be in a useless musical (Leeteuk can't even fucking sing, WTF) but no. They CHOSE to accept it.


    Smh. Disappointed.

    1. S true ! I mean he spent 70 days wandering around and doing merely anything and they guve him 7 days if probation whaouuu ! "Normal" soldiers spend their everyday working out.what is a punishment for him is the everyday situation of normal soldiers

  25. He should take responsibility and choose to re-enlist himself if he wants people to respect him again...

    ReplyDelete
  26. He could go to America and film movies there....

  27. I think rain has paid enough tax dollars to the government to cover more than a few of his soldiers cost and his....... @.$

  28. i was so over rain for awhile but then he came back with love song. roflmao. it was parodied all over. he'll probably bounce back

    ReplyDelete
  29. i'm not trying to be his savior, but it seems as if many people don't understand the true problem behind all of this. all the blame should not just be put onto rain, but his superiors and the high officials that let him get away with this kind of shit too. any celebrity soldier that attempts to use their fame/fortune to their advantage in terms of military service and the people that let them get away with it should be treated the same a regular citizen. thrown in the cella with all of 'em.

  30. so have a lot of other soliders that didn't get the preferential treatment rain got

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm loving this backlash against Rain. He always came off as an asshole and douchebag. Great to see his fanbase has gone down dramatically.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Even if he re-enlist i dont think it will change anything much. I doubt he wants to endure another 2 years of hardship in military. Also, that would make him disappear from TV screen for 4 years. That would affect his popularity too.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Well it would be "endure 2 years of hardship" because he didn't really endure anything since he enlisted xD

  33. MMA try to get him back to serve but he filled a lawsuit against MMA. He lost the lawsuit and as a result he had to re-enlist. Therefore, It wasn't his decision to re-enlist. He had 2 option: re-enlist or go to jail.

    He never called himself a world star, you morons did.

    Let's wait and see what's gonna happen on the preson. lol this thing reminds me of that incident when a guy throws his shoes at bush.

    [+208, -3] He needed a consequence and they gave him 7 days of
    probation;; You ba$tards, you just gave him another week of vacation
    This so much. 7days probation? Do you mean 7 days of doing nothing?

  36. All Rain has to do is get into another American movie and they'll be kissing his ass all over again,

    ReplyDelete
  37. he did through his company's media play.

    ReplyDelete
  38. To be fair to Heechul, he himself doesn't post those pictures. It's the people he's with and around him.



    Also, "active service" is different from "public service," which Heechul is doing. He's basically a glorified minimum-wage worker for the government with an 8-to-5 job. He's not an active soldier with the task of being with the rest of soldiers that are made to defend the country. If he really was violating some rules, then he would've been punished by now.



    Rain abusing the privileges he's gotten =/= Heechul going out at night.

  39. Eeeeh. Worked for Psy anyway. Everyone knows he fucked up his military service, so he did it twice. Now it's just something they joke about.

  40. A Mega hit by Rain and things will take 180 turn.. Waiting for my World Star

  41. Throw an egg and see what happens later. If the cops doesnt take you away then thats really not illegal. I bet who could DARE to do such.

  42. Only crazy fangirls will do such a thing.. Netizens will only type their keyboard.

  43. I love the third comment on the second article.

  44. Why treat Rain with such disrespect? He's done a lot for Korea by showing the world kpop and even casting in American movies. It seems like actors, actresses, and idols are treated like dirt in their own country more than anywhere else. People make mistakes. He just got caught. Instead of yelling at Rain you should be demanding that the military be reformed because, believe me, this is going to happen with celebrities again, whether netizen's find out about it or not. Rain is going to have a successful comeback overseas and Korea's going to kiss his ass again just like they did with Psy. I hate Psy btw.

    ReplyDelete
  45. He has a metal placket on his leg and he can't fulfill any of the military duties.
    Not like S.Korean military is dying to use his super athletic body and skills for fights, they let him host a radio and let him be.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I kinda feel bad for him..I don't condone what he did BUT I'm sure there are more CELEBRITY names that did what he's done but was never caught. So sad that he's the only one getting all the heat when I'm pretty sure many Celebrity Soldiers is also doing what he did. I guess now they'll treat Rain as an example to not get caught slacking off in the army..

  48. It worked for psy because of GS. Rain just need to re-enlist and release a song like GS.

  49. Koreans have been joking about Psy's 4-year military service long before Gangnam Style though.
