Posted 6/16/07
I don't really give a crap about Rain but I think we need to go shoot some lawyers.

Finally I found some background informations about the cancel -.- Just want to know, how long this band with that cruel name exist? before rain/bi or later? ... but even if they started before rain...I don't understand, why they make such a fuss...they have a name like half of a novel... so you just have to pick out one word of it and go to the court??...crazy

americans just love legal suits. i like Rain's music. the beatles are legends (as many say but i don't see the hype) and half of them are dead already. i hope he has a good defence lawyer...

Man sometimes we Americans can take things too damn far.....Its just a fucking name that is know all over the world. Before I knew his name was really Rain I was calling him Bi then he became Bi Rain to me.

P.S I love his acting as well...Full House rocks!

Haha, true about the "we Americans" part. We're such assholes because we think we matter more than anyone else on the planet and our problems are worse than anyone else's...a bit too dramatic, too deserving of attention. I am not that familiar with this Korean singer/actor...however I've never even heard of that Beatles coverband but legal issues over a band name is somewhat ridiculous...the same issue happened with former Japanese rock band X ...they had to change their name to X-Japan due to the punk rock band X (whom I adore despite this) so there wouldn't be any confusion.

This is what happens when a band wants more publicity / money and lashes out against whoever seems like a good target for money.
