Rivalry between Rain and Stephen Colbert continues

For those of you who have been avid followers of Rain during his debut into the American media, you may recall his friendly rivalry with satirist and comedian Stephen Colbert.

If this is news to you, here's a quick run through. Well, it appears as if Stephen Colbert has more to say to this "Biggest Badass Star!"

On the latest episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert talked about his Korean arch nemesis in a segment called, "Who's Not Honoring Me Now?" Describing Rain as a "man who takes cruel pleasure at beating me in things" Colbert listed out all of Rain's achievements in comparison to himself. In addition, he questioned Rain's validity for winning the 2010 MTV Movie Awards for the "Biggest Badass Star," stating, "Clearly, he only won the Badass award because his movie has the word 'ass' in the title twice...and was bad."

Later, Colbert concluded his segment on Rain with the statement, "But you know who you didn't see in that [Ninja Assassin] clip? Me. Who's the better ninja now?" Smart one Colbert!

Now before you get fired up over his comments, keep in mind that Stephen Colbert is a satirist. Don't take it too seriously. As a matter of fact, I'm sure they are quite good friends, if not acquaintances. Don't believe me? Check out some of his earlier clips on Rain on the Colbert Nation and tell me that they are still true rivals.
