  1. According to Rain Vietnam fanpage, which obtained the news from a weibo blog (as credited in the pictures), Rain was at a rehearsal for CDAC/Asian Culture Carnival in Beijing today. Rain is invited to perform at Asian Culture Carnival in Beijing, China. In these pictures it looks like he just finished rehearsing the theme song "Our Asia" with 6 singers from other countries in the region. The event is scheduled for 12 May. Besides Rain, other artists attending the event are expected to be Andy Lau, Jacky Chan, Jet Li, Wakin Chau, Jacky Cheung, JJ Lin, EXO's Lay ...
  2. The handsome dad was spotted at 현대카드 (Hyundai Card) Cooking Library last Monday May 6
  3. Hmm not up-to-date journalism? After "Carefree Travelers" Rain spent 2018 New Year's eve in Taiwan performing at the year-end concert! He was last in Taiwan in September 2018! for his fan-meeting! Anyway, I love how he looked at the Tiffany event, absolutely dashing! And am ecstatic at the news of his new drama! Yay, Rain is back to the small screen +dancing across the room+ Love it, love it, love it! I finally got to order the Sketch DVD set 1, another yay, am waiting to order set 2 in June. Can't wait to receive it! The handsome dad was spotted at 현대카드 (Hyundai Card) Cooking Library last Monday May 6 For the Clouds who are in Korea next week, there is a chance to see the man at 28th Gumi University Festival on 17 May.
  4. Congratulations, Rain, on the 17th anniversary of your official debut. Rain's fans posted many of his clips to celebrate the occasion. I'd like to share here two songs from his first album that are special to me. The first is Instead of Saying Goodbye, one of the three singles from his first album, N.001. When someone compiles a list of Rain's top songs, this song rarely makes it, but he actually performs it a lot on stage throughout his career. This song is special to me for two reasons. One - it is a song that could be credited with "reviving" his first album. And two - I just really love him on the stage singing the song, though its lyrics is sad, he was just having so much fun on the stage with his dancing and the whole performance is just really an overdose of cuteness. The second song is my most favorite from his first album, in fact, it's one of my most favorite love ballads in all languages and of all times. As your Vietnam fan club wrote on the congratulatory banner "It has been such a wonderful journey with you"! Happy Anniversary!

  6. Am very grateful to Mr. Kim for always encouraging Rain to act, giving Rain that dual role in the school project to convince him that he can act. As I said earlier, I came to know of Rain as an actor first and he is such a fine actor that I really appreciate. I like it that he doesn't want to be boxed in a stereotype of characters and acting. He challenges himself to portray different roles and act in different genres, both on small and big screens. Unfortunately, for a drama or a movie, it takes so much more than just a good male lead to be successful. Rain's latest Weibo post Credit: RainVietnam fanpage It actually took him about 20mins to finish the post haha, it started with just a "Hi" Then he added in some more words ... Then, finally, he was able to upload a picture! Tada!
  7. Arts, as it appeals to feelings and perception, is subjective so am perfectly okay when someone doesn't like what I like, because a lot of times I don't like what many people like While I agree that MLG's script was ultimately responsible for the drama's low rating, unlike the writer of the soompi post, I have no issue with Hyun Wook falling in love with the younger sister of his deceased girlfriend. Supposedly, Se Na was a strong girl, different from most of the girls in the showbiz even though she aspired to be a musician/song-writer and I could see why HW fell for her. Of course, on the screen, like you @willenette, I don't think Krystal was up to the role. She was too young for it - I don't mean her age, rather I don't think she had enough life experience to portray such a character. Side note: 11 years before MLG, Rain was cast to portray someone 6-7 years older than his real age (Cha Sang Doo was supposed to be around 27-28 years old when Rain was only 21) and he performed beautifully. In my opinion, his excellent performance owed a lot to the fact that up to that point Rain had been through lots of unfortunate experience, he had had to fight hard, he himself has a big kind heart and a strong love for life, so he had a good reservoir of emotion to tap into and project out. Besides, though at the time of Sang Doo, Let's Go To School, Rain had had no acting experience, except for a few acting courses he took at Anyang Arts Highschool (which he often skipped to practice dancing), he did have good acting potential, as observed by his teacher of acting (one of the seven Rainmakers ). Back to MLG, my biggest issues, aside from Krystal's acting, are when the screenwriter decided to have Hyun Wook delayed telling Se Na the truth and eventually let Se Na receive the news from Jae Young instead (arghhh!) and then, 4 episodes later, have Se Na swayed by Hyun Wook's father's words and decided to leave him. That totally doesn't make any freaking sense to me. But I love MLG, really. It's a drama I can come back watching any time, because of Rain's acting - he carried the whole drama. I love how Rain portrayed LHW's loneliness, I love LHW's wit and I love LHW's love for Se Na. MLG isn't as good a drama of Rain as his other K-dramas but, and it's a big BUT, MLG has a happy ending (yay!). Of course, Dalbongie is a huge plus
  8. Although many details have been blurred, as we know, 17 years ago, on April 24th was the first occasion when Rain appeared as a solo singer on stage and danced and sang the famous Bad Guy at the recording for his first show, called Show Music Tank. It was scheduled regularly on Fridays by KMTV, which was a cable channel so the broadcast may have been on April 26th. After two days, on April 28th Rain performed at Popular Song (Inkigayo), and that show was broadcasted on SBS, which is a country-wide TV channel. As we know, Rain regards that day as his real debut. Although his Clouds likes to celebrate him, so usually, we used to hold a four-day yearly event During the first months of his career, he performed Bad Guy on many occasions. He wore a unique and beautiful silk costume in several different colors and tailoring versions. His appearances were almost equal to a fashion show You can find the collection of the first 32 performances between April and July 2002 in the linked blog post. https://incrediblerain.blogspot.com/2016/07/song-history-daltortenet-bad-guy_4.html?fbclid=IwAR2L2NkRFZUVlB_oewHk3kagdahmYgHi188FmQKS9wtTpBpjlqCekidi8us Credit: RAINCloudEurope

  10. True that his official Clouds are celebrating April 28th, but April 24th is still a special day Tiffany & Co is smart, most of Rain's fans are female and are perfect target clients of Tiffany
  11. 17 years have passed, he has come a very long way, yet this song to his fans is still one of the most special. Happy 17th anniversary, RAIN!
  12. 17 years ago today, a rookie singer stepped on the stage of KM Show Music Tank for his debut performance. The PD of the show recalled how nervous yet focused he was, how he kept practicing in the waiting room, and how throughout his performance he maintained a perfect distance with his back-up dancers without a single mistake. This debut stage came after very many failed auditions, years of endless training and teeth-grinding. It came as a result of a strong will, a very good work ethic and, above all, a promise to his deceased mother. Happy 17th anniversary, RAIN!
  13. As usual in all of his concerts/fan-meetings, the tickets that are closest to the stage and allow best view of him always sell the quickest Same thing with his fan meeting last year in Thailand, all VIP tickets sold out so quick. I wonder who coordinates his fanmeetings in Vancouver, and why Vancouver? Most important question: why June? WHY? WHY? I have a training on these exact two dates! And can only be in Canada in August Will try to make it to Hanoi then, he will only perform a few songs but at least that's better than nothing. After an intensive February it has gone quiet again and I miss him
  14. True that. The last time he came to Hanoi, he was still in the army. There is a small SVIP area with seatings, for which ticket price is VND 4,000,000 (about US$170), but actually that area would be further from the stage than the first half of the VVIP standing area. I hope some international Clouds could make it to Hanoi this time to cheer him on. Matching jerseys and single eyelids and the ring Rain is so good with kids, he is absolutely a natural. And I love his hands!
  15. 9 years ago today, Rain released the special album Back To The Basic. One number in that album, Love Song, marks one of his many magic and trademark dances. Full version of the Love Song MV is available on Rain's official Youtube channel Rain Vietnam fan club announces that Rain is listed in the line up for Vietnam - Korea Friendship concert in Hanoi on June 1st (English follows the Vietnamese part). Rumour is the line up includes Rain, MAMAMOO, SF9, Pentagon, N.Flying. Press conference for the concert is expected on 15 April and ticketing information should be available after that.
