Seoul — Korean star Rain surprised Kim Joon Ho on the latest episode of My Ugly Duckling by revealing how much he paid for his most recent choreography.

Comedian Kim Joon Ho together with his friends KCM and Lee Sang Min visited Rain at his agency during the May 2 broadcast of the SBS reality show. Kim Joon Ho shared that he had recently launched his own cat character and asked if Rain would be willing to come up with the choreography for his new character’s theme song.

Lee Sang Min asked Rain how much choreography costs these days, compared to back when he was still active as a singer and music producer, reported  Soompi.

“Choreography these days? It’s really expensive,” replied Rain.
