MANILA, Philippines – Asian pop star Rain and Korean-American actor-model Daniel Henney were interviewed on TV5’s “Paparazzi” about their experiences in the Philippines, work and personal life.
The two are in the country to shoot scenes for “Fugitive,” a co-production of Domangja and TV5. The film tells the story of Jiwoo (played by Rain), a famous investigator assigned to solve the mysterious death of an Asian couple in Las Vegas.
“I went to six cities in five countries in shooting the ‘Fugitive’. It’s like a movie schedule,” Rain told “Paparazzi.”
Henney, on the other hand, said his character in the drama is like a puppet master.
“This is the character they’ve never seen. This is most difficult character I’ve played in a Korean drama till now. This guy holds the keys. He plays the puppet master, which is very difficult for me because I have to know every single storyline,” Henney said.
“Fugitive” will be Rain’s comeback to the Korean drama scene. His last drama was “A Love To Kill” which was shown in 2005. Rain shot to fame when he did the drama “Full House” in 2004.
Despite the sweltering temperature, Rain and Henney said they are enjoying their stay in the Philippines.
“I love Manila even before especially Cebu. I’m also recommending to my other friends to visit the Philippines. I love it here,” Rain told DJ Mo.
For Henney, he will never forget a memorable night in Boracay.
“We were in Boracay one night, I remember. We finished the shoot. We had a boat that was kinda off the shore. The flying fish. I’ll never forget it. We were swimming with the flying fish. It’s like forever embedded in my mind. And the beautiful white sand.”
Henney also revealed that he doesn’t have a girlfriend at the moment.
Asked if he will consider having a Filipina girlfriend, Henney said “Of course, why not?”
For him, the most important thing is that the girl should have a sense of humor.
He said his family grew up in an atmosphere that can be likened to “Saturday Night Live,” a comedy and variety show in the US.
“Laughter is very important. (The girl should be) Down to earth but cool at the same time,” he said.
For Rain, his priority right now is his career. He is doing all his celebrity activities before he enters the Korean military early next year.
Rain said he is focusing on his singing and acting careers.
“I will continue singing and acting. But I’m looking forward to show you guys more…a better Rain,” he said.
