Rain and Park Jin Young recently guested on Knowing Brothers, and during the episode, Rain shared a story of when Park Jin Young scolded him on his birthday.
Rain, who was under JYP Entertainment in the past, revealed that he often got scolded by Park Jin Young.
Rain then talked about an incident that happened on his birthday. He shared that in the past, there was a show called the Park Jin Young Show. At the time, Park Jin Young was considered the number one music producer in Korea.
Park Jin Young decided to let Rain guest on the show, as he wanted to introduce Rain to the public. Rain then began practicing intensely for his appearance.
However, since it was his birthday, Rain and some other trainees decided to get some fried chicken.
The other trainees were already at the restaurant and had ordered for him.
Rain then started heading to the restaurant, but he ended up meeting Park Jin Young.
Park Jin Young asked Rain where he was going, and Rain soon got scolded by Park Jin Young for an hour.
Park Jin Young ended up telling him things like, “Are you in the position to do that?” and “Who cares about your birthday?”
Kim Young Chul then commented that Park Jin Young celebrated birthdays for other artists under his company, such as Wonder Girls and TWICE. He then asked Park Jin Young why he was so tough on Rain.
Park Jin Young then shared that he was concerned since Rain had “the most potential to become arrogant“.
Of all the kids I’ve seen, I was the most concerned about Ji Hoon (Rain’s real name). I think it was because I thought he was exceptionally talented. I thought he had the most potential to become arrogant.

Rain then refuted Park Jin Young’s comment, saying that he believed that he got scolded since Park Jin Young didn’t sleep a lot that day and that something must have upset him. After Rain stated this, everyone began laughing.
