Discovery Channel Zooms in on Pop Icon ‘Rain’

Korean pop star Rain is the subject of a documentary on the Discovery channel. Rain’s management agency said the documentary, aired in Australia and New Zealand on Jan. 31, will be screened across Asia including Korea on Feb. 23. The documentary portrays Rain as a symbol of Korean pop culture that has flourished in the past decade.

As part of the special program “Hip Korea” focusing on the popularity of the Korean pop culture, Rain features as a Korean cultural icon who appeals to worldwide audiences.

Rain’s passion and talent are discussed in interviews with Steven Colbert, the host of the U.S. show “The Colbert Report,” which regularly lampoons the singer, actress Susan Sarandon, who appeared beside him in “Speed Racer,” film director Park Chan-wook and actress Lim Soo-jung.

The Discovery Channel specializes in documentaries and is aired in some 170 countries.
