PEOPLE Magazine Got Rain's Photo Wrong

US Celebrity magazine, PEOPLE, has got Korean Superstar, Rain's main photo in their brief interview write up all wrong. (See pic below) In the latest issue of the magazine, the picture was in fact of Karl Yune (brother of Rick Yune), another Korean arising star in Hollywood.
Rain, 26, who lately starred as "Taejo" in his first Hollywood movie "Speed Racer", was apparently not given the superstar welcome as he had in Asia.He lately walked the red carpet with Hollywood star, Susan Sarandon when "Speed Racer" premiered on the 26 April, 2008 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Media reported that his name was merely announced as Taejo, his movie role. It caused an uproar in his Korean's peers and fans as they felt that the Hollywood media had done him injustice to his superstar status in Asia.
Rain's fans are also rather upset and crying foul over People magazine's blunder. "Is that you Rain?", they protest.
