In probably one of the most shocking things I’ve heard in recent months, Korean pop superstar Rain mentioned in his interview with CNN’s Lorraine Hahn for CNN Talk Asia that as part of his career plan, he needs to learn the following languages: English (of course), Japanese (because he has to if he wants to keep his Japanese fan base; the Japanese will do anything for a foreign star who strives to learn their language), Chinese (because he has a large Chinese fan base), and… Tagalog. WHOA! I know that’s something to be really excited about for us Pinoy Bi’ers, but… why the heck would he want to learn Tagalog??? What for? We can understand English pretty well. Unless he has any other agenda for it, there is really no need for him to learn our language.
I must admit I was jumping for joy when I heard about it. That could only mean one thing: he really IS heading this way next year, maybe for a concert or a promo tour. Or maybe even for a vacation. Who knows?
