PostSubject: Korean Singer Rain Criticized for Wearing Fur   Sat Nov 24, 2007 4:33 am

An animal rights group Wednesday criticized South Korea's top entertainer Rain for "dressing like a caveman" and urged him to set a good example to fans by ditching fur.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Asia Pacific (PETA) said in a statement it had written to the pop star calling on him to stop living up to the name of his first album -- Bad Guy -- by wearing fur.

"You have said that you want to show American women 'how sweet and loving Asian men are'. Correct us if we're wrong, but wearing fur is anything but 'sweet' and there is no 'loving' way to rip the skin off a still-twitching animal," the letter says.

"And although you have likened yourself to 'SexyBack' singer Justin Timberlake, you are anything but sexy for wearing the fur of tortured animals on your back."

PETA said millions of animals are killed for their fur by electrocution on farms or in the wild by drowning, trapping or beating.

Korean singer Rain has won top awards throughout Asia and he became the first Asian artist to be invited to the American MTV Video Music Awards in 2005.
