Singer and actor Rain was named the Biggest Badass Star at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (local time).
Rain is the first Korean and the fifth Asian to receive an MTV Movie Award since its launch in 1992, following Jackie Chan ("Rush Hour"), Zhang Ziyi ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"), Lucy Liu ("Kill Bill"), and Chiaki Kuriyama ("Kill Bill").
"I think I've been rewarded for the hardships I had to endure and overcome while working on 'Ninja Assassin,'" Rain said through his agent.
The winners were chosen through an online poll. "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" swept the major awards this year, winning Best Movie, Best Male Performance, Best Female Performance, and Best Kiss.
