'Movie Awards' Upset! Rain Wins 'Biggest Badass' Award Over Angelina!

Mon, June 7, 2010 10:17am EDT by 32 Comments

Get to know Rain, America, it looks like he is going to be the next big thing after winning last night’s ‘MTV Movie Award’ for ‘Biggest Badass!’

Last night’s nominees for “Biggest Badass” at the MTV Movie Awards included; American heartthrobs Channing Tatum and Chris Pine, Australian action star Sam Worthington, and the world’s most famous mom and actor, Angelina Jolie, but it was South Korean pop star and actor Rain who walked away with the award for his performance in Ninja Assassin!

As we told you yesterday, Rain is one of the most beloved singers and actors in Asia, and it looks like he may start making his way over to America! Assassin is his second English language film, after Speed Racer, and he clearly has a huge global fan base given he edged out the other four superstars in his category!

“They told me I was nominated for the Badass award so I’ve been working out,” Rain joked when he accepted his award. The audience didn’t seem to understand his humor so he remarked, “Why so serious? Enjoy. Thank you so much. Thank you.”

What do you think about this possible new American star?

So what???
American should be delighted to have RAIN there…. by the way I’m from Sri lanka and I’m jealous of you all! lol Kidding!

Mtv had been pretty much benefited in every way to have had new MTV fans just because of RAIN!!
Not forgetting the fact he IS a global star….so wherever he appears,his fans(clouds) will make sure to
LET IT just RAIN!!

Rain’s entrance to Western culture happened in 2006 as he won the Most Influential People Award at the TIME POLL Magazine…..He was an advent!

I believe there’s so many more room there for RAIN in the global….sky has no limit,,,, so the clouds will spread all over to LET IT RAIN!!

Thanks!

Rain is the best! Ninja Assassin didn’t begin to show what he can do as an actor – If you REALLY want to see something watch A Love to Kill – complex conflicted character and awesome acting – totally Oscar worthy. And he never ceases to surprise us with his many talents – he works incredibly hard and achieved a professional level as a stunt man for Ninja Assassin, learned Swiss yodeling for I’m a Cyborg – what next??? And he’s fantastic live on stage as a singer and dancer. But best of all, he’s a truly nice guy that you can respect as a person. I’m from the US and glad that he is finally getting some recognition here, but his fan base is global – I’ve talked to fans from Egypt, Peru, France, Germany, Philippines, Thailand, Japan, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Mexico, and many more places. We are all united in our support for Rain. He deserved this award!

He deserve the award 100%,no doubt about it.If people only knew how hardworking this person is then they will stop questioning about him winning in the awards night.He is a multi-talented man and do his very best in everything,he’s not just an actor but a singer,dancer,producer,model, ambassador and businessman.Yes,he has a very huge fanbase all over the world who stand by his side all the time.I guess it will be more huge now that America saw him in the awards night.This is just the beginning,America and rest of the world,prepare,Rain is coming!

RAIN (Jihoon Jung) is AWESOME! The MTV Bio captured it by saying he is a triple threat – DANCER, SINGER, and ACTOR. He debuted as a singer in 2002, and a lead actor in his first Korean Drama in 2003. RAIN has been taking the world by storm every since. He has more talent than others who have graced our American movie screens and have given performances (and I am an American). Seriously check-out RAIN — he is handsome, has a fabulous body, his onscreen presence, charisma, multiple talents, passion and work ethic are non-stop, AND he is a nice guy. He has a loyal and active fan base throughout the world (you will be surprised by some of the countries), who are behind him all the way. When RAIN is scheduled to perform, his concerts sell out in minutes. His last small hurdle with the U.S. was the language barrier, which he has been tackling over the years. However, every time I see RAIN it has improved tremendously.
America has been missing out on this “GEM” called RAIN, and it is time for all of us to enjoy the many facets of RAIN (Jihoon Jung).

Get your umbrellas America! Rain’s coming ROFL yes yes I know….

I am an American (born and raised in California) and its about time the MTV Awards starting showing some culture. I love Angie and Chris Pine is soo hot, but seriously, Nina Assassin is nothing but badass from the opening scene to the credits, so he desereved it.

I love Rain! He is not only multi-talented, he’s probably the hardest working guy in show business. I was so happy he won the badass award, it demonstrates how loyal and dedicated his fans are. Hopefully America will sit up and take notice of him from now on!

Rain was perfect and totally deserved the award. He’s skilled at what he does. Even though he’s not really a martial artist, he’s skilled and transformed his body for the role… I was beaming with joy when he won. And I hope to see more and more of him…. LOVE RAIN!!!!

Rain so deserves this reward! Love his acceptance speech too – so suitable to his award – badass style, short speech, cool act. He has style and he has brains. Hollywood should chase after him!
