Rain Shares Thoughts On The Future Of His Singing Career

 

de19a9b25eb74b3ba9744f55f4908aaa.jpeg?s=

 

On February 20, Rain participated in an interview to promote his upcoming film “Uhm Bok Dong.” The film is based on the true story of a Korean cyclist named Uhm Bok Dong, who becomes a hero after winning first place against the Japanese at a bicycle race during the time of Japanese colonial rule in Korea.

 

During the interview, Rain, who made his debut as a soloist in 2002 with “Bad Guy,” talked about his singing career and mentioned the possibility of setting aside his title as a singer.

 

Rain said, “My body doesn’t feel the same anymore on stage. That’s why I consistently work out, but a singer who dances is similar to an athlete. Your body needs to be in its prime. Right now, I’m not in my best state. I think I need to eventually let go of my title as a singer who dances.”

 

Rain continued, “I exercise, day and night. However, I need to draw the line at some point. I don’t know when that will be. It might be two, three, or four years later. If my body allows it, I would like to continue promoting as a singer, but I’m also preparing myself to let go of the singer Rain.”

Jung Ji Hoon as 'Bicycle King Uhm-bok-dong' 

 

 

AKR20190220083400005_02_i_20190220204024

 

 

He stepped on the bike pedal like a racehorse running alone.  He turned around in a 420m track from 8 am to 6 pm for six to seven months in an infinite loop. He was better than anyone who was tough, but 'loneliness and fighting' was not easy. "I turned around the track and thought, 'who am I, where am I now?'

 

It is the story of a singer and actor Jung Ji Hoon (Rain 37) since his debut. He took on the leading role in the movie "Bicycle King Uhm - bok - dong", which opens on the 27th. It is a work that depicts the real story of famed cyclist Uhm Bok-dong, who became a symbol of pride for Koreans when he defeated Japanese cyclists and won the championship in a bicycle race which took place during the Japanese colonial rule of Korea.

 

 

AKR20190220083400005_04_i_20190220204024


On the 20th, Jung Ji-hoon who was at Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, took time out to participate in an interview to promote his upcoming film “Uhm Bok Dong.”

 

He took all bike racing scenes personally without any double. Just like a national cyclists he received the same training for three and a half months. During the filming, he was always in the training track, cycling for eight hours a day in the same place. He is well known for his physical fitness, but he remembers the time "I felt like I was in hell with a squirrel," he said. ““My body doesn’t feel the same anymore on stage. That’s why I consistently work out, but a singer who dances is similar to an athlete. Your body needs to be in its prime. Right now, I’m not in my best state. I think I need to eventually let go of my title as a singer who dances.”

 

"When I ride a bicycle I cannot say enough, but my thighs have become very thick. I usually wear 32-33 size pants, but when I wear that size now my thighs do not fit anymore so, I wear my pants in size 38-40 now. I had to reduce my thigh muscles by withdrawing from this undertaking."

 

AKR20190220083400005_05_i_20190220204024


His last Korean film appearance was seven years ago, R2B: Return to Base" (2012). Jung Ji-hoon, a singer & actor read the script, which Lee Bum-soo, the actor & producer wrote and said, "I felt that there was something very exciting in the story." 

 

In the movie, it appears to be intense, but full of enjoyment for cyclists. 

 

"I looked into & searched and found that he was as great as Sohn Kee-chung, although there was a story about this some previous years, based on the advice and the information I have received from my old folks."

 

During the movie filming, there were many twists and turns. The director was replaced during mid-filming and the shooting took three months longer than originally scheduled due to natural disasters.

 

"It was true that I had a hard time," he said. "I tried to do my best all the time, no matter what outside influences there was. All the staff suffered a lot during summer, but we all persevered."

 

 AKR20190220083400005_03_i_20190220204024


Jung Ji-hoon married an actress Kim Tae-hee in 2017 and had a daughter now. Is there any difference? 

 

““I exercise, day and night. However, I need to draw the line at some point. I don’t know when that will be. It might be two, three, or four years later. If my body allows it, I would like to continue promoting as a singer, but I’m also preparing myself to let go of the singer Rain. I cannot follow the trend these days. Although I go to the club and listen to the music that young people listen to these days.

 

We asked about Kim Tae-hee and his daughter, he said, ““Nothing has really changed for me. Nothing changed just because I started a family and I became a father. But I now have a first rule. I am going to separate my family and work.  I adore my child and I want to show her to all of you, but I realized that this can’t happen.  I really don’t want my family to get hurt later on".

 

He has been active as a singer and actor for 20 years.

 

"I have two jobs, being a singer & an actor and sometimes I get confused. Soon, it's time to drop one of them. Being a dancing singer has a shelf life, but I will dance until my body moves. 

 

AKR20190220083400005_06_i_20190220204024


Jung Ji-hoon is very active in SNS these days. He is also in communication with young friends these days.

 

He said, "I have music that can be played by people in their twenties.”Sometimes I go to the club to meet young people who know how to make songs."

 

Jung Ji-hoon said that he would like to participate in an independent short films made by university students. 

 

"I would like to participate in a variety of works even if I have a small role as an actor because I am in the process of improving my career as an actor. It is my dream to work for a long time like Ahn Sung Ki."

 

Jung Ji-hoon mentioned to doing a drama and another movie appearances with his next project, and will release an album at the end of the year and go on a concert tour.

'자전차왕 엄복동' 정지훈 "자전거 특훈, 지구 한 바퀴 돌았죠"

 

(서울=연합뉴스) 조재영 기자 = 자전거 페달을 밟고 또 밟았다. 혼자 앞만 보고 달리는 경주마처럼 6∼7개월간 아침 8시부터 오후 6시까지 420m 트랙을 무한 반복으로 돌았다. 몸이 힘든 것은 누구보다 잘하는 그였지만, '외로움과 싸움'은 쉽지 않았다. "트랙을 돌며 '나는 누구인가, 지금 어디에 있는가'하는 생각이 들었죠."

 

데뷔 20년 차 가수 겸 배우 정지훈(비·37) 이야기다. 그는 오는 27일 개봉하는 영화 '자전차왕 엄복동'에서 타이틀롤을 맡았다. 일제강점기 일본 선수들을 제치고 조선인 최초로 '전조선자전차대회'에 우승해 동아시아에 이름을 떨친 실존 인물 엄복동을 그린 작품이다.

 


20일 서울 종로구 삼청동에서 만난 정지훈은 촬영 당시 힘든 기억을 하나둘씩 꺼냈다.

 

그는 모든 자전거경주 장면을 직접 소화했다. 이를 위해 국가대표 사이클 선수들이 받는 훈련을 3개월 반가량 똑같이 받았다. 촬영 중에도 말만 트랙이지, 흙바닥과 다름없는 곳에서 하루 8시간씩 질주하며 연기했다. 훈련과 촬영 기간 모두 합하면 지구 한 바퀴 정도를 자전거로 돌았다고 한다. 체력 좋기로 소문난 그이지만, 그때를 떠올리며 혀를 내둘렀다. 정지훈은 "다람쥐 쳇바퀴 돌듯 타다 보니 마치 개미지옥에 빠진 것 같았다"면서 "상대적으로 건강한 저도 힘든데, 보조 출연자분들은 탈진하거나 토하기도 했다"고 회상했다.

 

"자전거를 이루 말할 수 없이 많이 타다 보니 허벅지가 엄청 두꺼워졌어요. 원래 32~33 사이즈 바지를 입는데, 그 사이즈를 입으면 허벅지가 맞지 않아서 38~40 사이즈를 입고 허리띠를 졸라맸죠. 지금은 안 먹고, 살 빼는 운동을 해서 허벅지 근육을 줄였습니다."

 


그의 한국영화 출연은 '알투비: 리턴 투 베이스'(2012) 이후 7년 만이다. 정지훈은 선배 연기자이자, 이 영화 제작자인 이범수가 건넨 시나리오를 읽고 "박진감 넘치는 무엇인가가 있다는 것을 느꼈다"면서 "사람들이 잘 모르는 엄복동 선수를 알리는데 일조할 수 있을 것 같았다"고 말했다.

 

영화 속 엄복동은 궁핍하지만 그 누구보다 순수하고, 자전거에 대한 열정이 가득한 인물로 그려진다.

 

"자료를 찾아보니까 엄복동 선수는 손기정 선수만큼 대단한 분이셨더라고요. 물론 그분의 말년에 대한 이런저런 이야기가 있긴 하지만요. 제 주변 친척 어르신들을 찾아뵙고 들은 조언과 각종 자료를 토대로, 엄복동을 순수하고 올바른 청년으로 생각하고 연기했죠."

 

영화가 완성되기까지는 우여곡절이 많았다. 감독이 교체됐다가 다시 합류했고, 자연재해 등으로 촬영이 당초 일정보다 3개월가량 더 늘어났다.

 

그는 "마음고생이 심했던 것은 사실"이라면서도 "어떤 외부의 영향이 있더라도 내 자리에서 최선을 다하려고 했다. 모든 스태프가 한여름에 고생을 많이 했지만, 누구 한명 이탈하는 사람 없이 열심히 찍었다"고 강조했다.

 


정지훈은 2017년 톱스타 김태희와 결혼해 딸을 뒀다. 달라진 점이 있을까.

 

"결혼도 했고, 불혹의 나이를 바라보고 있으니 조금 더 어른스러워져야 하는 것 같아요. 하지만, 음악 하는 사람들은 아이 같은 면이 있거든요. 그런 면이 없으면 요즘 트렌드를 따라가지 못하죠. 어른스러워져야 하는데, 클럽에 가서 요즘 젊은이들이 듣는 음악도 들어야 하니까, 아이러니하기도 합니다."

 

내친김에 김태희와 딸의 근황을 물어보자, 그는 "가족과 일은 철저히 분리하려고 한다"면서 "제가 사랑스러운 딸을 자랑했을 때 언젠가 칼과 화살이 되어 돌아올 수 있을 것 같다"며 말을 아꼈다.

 

가수와 배우로서 20년간 활동한 그는 최근 고민도 가감 없이 털어놨다.

 

"제 직업이 두 개이다 보니 가끔 헷갈리기도 합니다. 어느 순간 둘 중 하나는 내려놔야 하는 시기가 오겠죠. 댄스 가수는 유통기한이 있으니까요. 다만, 전 제 몸이 움직일 때까지 제 스타일대로 춤을 출 것이고, 체력관리를 해서 그 유통기한을 조금 늘려보려고 합니다."

 


정지훈은 요즘 젊은 친구들과의 소통에 부쩍 공을 들인다.

 

그는 "10~20대에 먹히는 음악을 해야 한다. 그렇지 않으면 도태된다"면서 "가끔 클럽에 가는 것도 노래를 좀 만들 줄 아는 젊은 사람들을 섭외하고, 만나기 위해서"라고 말했다.

 

정지훈은 대학생이나 고등학생들이 만드는 독립 단편 영화에도 기꺼이 참여하고 싶다는 뜻을 밝혔다.

 

"그들 중에 제2의 박찬욱, 봉준호 감독이 나올지 누가 알겠습니까. 저는 배우로서 경력을 쌓아가는 단계인 만큼 작은 역할이라도 다양한 작품에 참여하고 싶습니다. 안성기 선배님처럼 천천히 오랫동안 작품을 하는 게 제 꿈이에요."

 

정지훈은 차기작으로 드라마와 영화 출연을 논의 중이며, 올 연말에는 앨범을 내고 콘서트 투어에도 나선다.

Rain Opens Up About Keeping His Daughter Out Of The Spotlight And Protecting Family From The Public

 

6f018d2ec8364f40b1d16de3d38ccf60.jpeg?s=

 

Rain shared his thoughts on speaking publicly about his family.

On February 20, the singer-actor participated in an interview about his latest film “Uhm Bok Dong.”

Rain married actress Kim Tae Hee in 2017, and the couple welcomed their daughter in the same year. When asked if this changed his decisions about acting projects, he replied, “Nothing has really changed for me. Nothing changed just because I started a family and I became a father. But I now have a first rule.”

He continued, “For instance, I could speak positively in the past and say something like, ‘My child is like this and my family is doing this and that.’ But I think the world has become a scary place these days. I adore my child too, so I want to show her to all of you, but all of that returns to bite a person later on. I realized that this can’t happen and I want to completely separate my family and work.” He added, “I really don’t want my family to get hurt. They don’t impact the way I choose my projects, but I’m always careful when talking about my family.”

“I hate to bring this up again, but I’m someone who had many emotions related to guilt about my mother,” said Rain. “Because of that, I don’t have sound judgment when my family gets hurt. Since I’m a celebrity, it doesn’t matter that the public talks about me. But when people talk about my family, I tend to cross the line and not have sound judgment.”

“Uhm Bok Dong” is a film based on the true story of a Korean cyclist of the same name. Uhm Bok Dong became a hero after beating Japanese athletes and winning first place in a bicycle race during the Japanese colonial era. The film will premiere in theaters on February 27.

Rain had nothing but praise for BTS in a recent interview.

On February 20, the actor of the upcoming film “Uhm Bok Dong” spoke about the popularization of Korean culture and the “BTS syndrome.”

Rain was described as a “world star” after working in Korea and abroad as a singer and an actor. Recently, BTS has been recognized for promoting Korean culture and music all over the world through their music.

“People called me a world star at the time because it wasn’t something that had happened before, but I think it was an exaggeration,” said Rain. “I think that all Koreans currently working abroad should be applauded.”

He continued, “Because of them, people in other countries are learning about Korean culture and studying the Korean language. When I went on overseas tours in the past, I had to do the Q&A in English. But now when I ask in Korean, [the fans] understand everything and respond. They’re studying through YouTube because of K-pop singers, Korean actors, and Korean content.”

“In that sense, BTS is really amazing and wonderful,” added Rain. “I also think that others, including TWICE, need to be more recognized from here on out. I sometimes meet up with PSY and say that I’m so happy. PSY and I are both producing. If groups like BTS and TWICE do well now, then a bigger star can come out in the future. I think it’s a proper phenomenon.”

Rain will be making a comeback to the big screen through the film “Uhm Bok Dong,” which is based on a true story about a cyclist who wins first place in a bicycle race during the Japanese colonial era.

"I'm confused of being a singer and an actor at the same time"

Actor Jung Ji-hoon (Rain) is confused between being a singer and being an actor.

 

Jung Ji-hoon said in an interview at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Seoul on the 20th, prior the release of the movie.

 

Since debuting as a singer in 1998 as a member of Fan Club, Jung Ji-hoon has been a singer.  "In the year 2002, I debuted as a solo singer, he said.” I was a rookie as a singer in the field then when I suddenly was offered to do a drama 'Sang Doo! Let's Go To School'. 

 

Jung Ji-hoon said, "Everyone has asked," why do you want to be an actor? "I was one of the members of the former boy group band and I wanted to be an actor as well. I was able to do the drama and even after a little more time, I confess that I needed to decide whether this is what I want, being a singer or an actor. "

 

Jung Ji-hoon said, ““My body doesn’t feel the same anymore on stage. That’s why I consistently work out, but a singer who dances is similar to an athlete. Your body needs to be in its prime. Right now, I’m not in my best state. I think I need to eventually let go of my title as a singer who dances.”

 

Jung Ji-hoon added, "I am more competitive to become a good actor. It stimulates me steadily." 

 

He continues to be a producer as well. Jung Ji-hoon said, "I am collecting songs, and I am aiming to collect more and support children who are doing good music nowadays.  I have already collected a few of them."

 

The movie 'The Bicycle King Uhmbok-dong' is a film based on the true story of famed cyclist Uhm Bok-dong, who became a symbol of pride for Koreans when he defeated Japanese cyclists and won the championship in a bicycle race which took place during the Japanese colonial rule of Korea.

 

 

The movie "The Bicycle King Uhmbok-dong" will be released on February 27th.

[SPO★TALK]"가수냐 배우냐, 비와 정지훈의 갈림길에서 고민중"

 

[스포티비뉴스=김현록 기자]배우 정지훈(비)가 가수의 길과 배우의 길을 고민하고 있다고 털어놨다.

 

정지훈은 오는 27일 영화 '자전차왕 엄복동'(감독 김유성) 개봉을 앞둔 20일 서울 삼청동의 한 카페에서 인터뷰를 갖고 이같이 말했다.

 

1998년 솔로 가수로 데뷔한 이래 가수 비로, 배우 정지훈으로 분야를 가리지 않고 활동해 온 정지훈은 "과거엔 뭔가로 각인된 사람이 다

 

른 일을 한다는 것, 바람을 피운다는 것이 받아들여지기 힘든 구조였다. 2000년대 초반에는 더했다"면서 "신인상을 받고 가수로서 탄탄대로를 가자 했을 때 제가 갑자기 '상두야 학교가자'라는 시놉시스를 읽고 무조건 하겠다고 매달렸다"고 연기를 시작하던 때를 떠올렸다.

 

정지훈은 "다들 말렸다. '왜 굳이 연기를 하고싶니'라고 여쭤보셨다. 전 연영과 출신이고 연기가 하고 싶었다. 무대포 정신인지 무조건 한다고 했는데 다행인지 사랑도 받고 혼도 나며 여기까지 왔다"며 "비와 정지훈이 함께 올 수 있었다. 저조차도 조금 더 시간이 지날수록 비와 정지훈의 길을 이 길인지 이 길인지를. 정해야 할 것 같다"고 고백했다.

 

정지훈은 "몸이 옛날같지는 않다. 스포츠선수처럼 춤을 추려면 몸의 전성기가 필요하다. 사실 몸의 전성기는 지나가는 시기다. 댄스가수라는 역할은 내려놔야 하지 않을까 하는 생각도 든다. 아침저녁 꾸준히 운동을 하지만 어느 순간에는 선을 그어야 하지 않을까"라고 고민을 토로했다.

 

정지훈은 "진짜 연기 잘하는 선후배 동갑내기와 견주어 내가 경쟁력이 있나. 꾸준히 저를 자극한다. 저에게 더 냉정해졌다"며 "예전에는 가수 겸 배우 둘 다 하니까 전투력이 있었던 거지 이제는 배우를 하려면 연기를 정말 잘 해야 한다. 진짜 배우 타이틀을 가지고 가겠다면 버려야 할 것도 많지 않을까. 나름대로 시험하고 싶은 것 같다"고 말했다.

 

가수는 물론 제작자로의 활동도 계속하고 있다. 정지훈은 "곡을 모으고 있다. 요즘 잘 하는 음악하는 아이들을 모아서 지원하는 것이 목표"라며 "제작자로서 준비하고 있는 것이 사실이고 이미 몇 팀을 모았다. 조금 있으면 보실 수 있을 것이다. 신인 가수와 작곡가, 작사가들이 있다"고 덧붙였다.

 

영화 '자전차왕 엄복동'은 일제강점기 희망을 잃은 시대에 일본 선수들을 제치고 조선인 최초로 전조선자전차대회 1위를 차지하며 동아시아 전역을 제패한 실존 인물 엄복동을 소재로 삼은 작품이다. 정지훈은 타이틀롤 엄복동을 맡았다.

 

영화 '자전차왕 엄복동'은 오는 2월 27일 개봉한다.
