Pop star sued over canceled concert

SOUTH Korean pop star and actor Rain is expected to testify in his civil trial stemming from a canceled concert in Hawaii.

A five-man, three-woman jury was selected among a pool of 52 on Tuesday. Opening arguments began yesterday.

Among the potential jurors who were eliminated was a University of Hawaii student who indicated to the court he was a fan of Rain, but could remain objective.

Rain - whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon - and his producers are being sued over the performer's abrupt cancellation of a June 2007 concert in Honolulu.

Attorneys for both sides listed the 26-year-old performer as one of the witnesses they intended to call. He isn't expected to be in court until next week.

The trial is expected to last about two weeks.
