We would've loved to see Rain be a superhero, but he had a good reason for turning down X-Men!

Rain is one of the most popular Korean actors these days, so it's no surprise that studios everywhere want him to star in every movie possible. While this is an enviable position to be in, it turns out Rain is quite humble with what he decides to work on, so much so that he turned down a part in the upcoming new "X-Men" movie!

In a new interview with actor Lee Beom Soo, Rain's co-star in the upcoming South Korean biographical film "Uhm Bok-dong," he revealed that working with Rain opened his eyes to just how humble and loyal his co-star actually is.

Not only did Lee Beom Soo note that Rain had grown into actor with unique aura, he praised his co-star's honesty and loyalty to his commitments, saying that Rain was actually cast in a role of an upcoming new "X-Men" movie. However, Rain turned the part down due to conflicting filming schedules with their current movie "Uhm Bok-dong," as "X-Men" was scheduled to start filming in July while "Uhn Bok-dong" is set to continue filming until August. 

While it's a slight shame we won't get to see Rain dress up as a mutant in "X-Men," we're glad to hear that Rain is not only super-talented, but he's just a nice guy in general!
