Rain says he has no desire to star in a big budget movie

South Korean pop idol and actor Rain says he plans to star in a movie next year but he has no desire to be in a big budget film because he doesn't want to become more famous.

Rain's music has become popular throughout Asia and tickets for his concert last month in Hong Kong sold out within an hour after going on sale. The singer is also famous for his role in the TV series "Full House."

He said in an interview with CNN's "Talk Asia," which aired Monday, "There are actually plans for a movie next year, so we'll have to see what happens."

Rain didn't provide more details about the film, but he said he had no interest in a big production because "I have no wish to become any more popular or famous", AP reports.
