Hi @laughter4christ 

You are most welcome, dear. Happy to serve, so to speak, hehe...I also want more about KTH and Baby Jung but I totally agree with you that it must be tiring for Rain to keep answering the same questions about his family. He nonetheless shared bits here and there to satiate enough of initial curiosity. We accept them with gladness and continue to pray that he shares a bit more down the road whenever he is ready to share while we wait for KTH’s return to limelight and share hers! :tongue::D

Park Jin Young Talks About Rain’s Memorable JYP Audition And Once Crying At Rain’s Acceptance Speech

J. Lim December 3, 2017

Producer Park Jin Young opened up about his affection for Rain.

During Rain’s comeback special show “Rain is Back,” which aired on KBS 2TV on December 3, Park Jin Young appeared on the show to talk about his friendship with Rain.


Rain’s music career started with him entering JYP Entertainment as a trainee. Looking back on Rain’s audition, Park Jin Young said, “I still remember every expression he had and how much he was sweating because he was working hard. I think the reason I picked him to join our agency was because of his eyes. His gaze reminded me of a young lion or tiger cub that was hungry and on the brink of starvation.”


He continued to state, “He had already auditioned at 19 other agencies and been rejected by all of them. He had a lot of pride and as the world wasn’t going the way he wanted it to, his eyes seemed to hold a sense of rebellion, cynicism, and a determination to not lose his pride. It was the first time I’d seen that kind of look in a trainee. I wanted to see what he could do, I was curious.”





Though Park Jin Young has been behind countless stars who have shined in the entertainment industry, he has always had a soft spot for Rain. He said, “The most memorable moment for me is when he won his first Daesang [Grand Prize] on KBS. He started crying during his acceptance speech and I think that’s the only time I’ve cried for someone who won an award.”


When asked why he cried, Park Jin Young said, “He was talking about how I had taken him in when he was at his lowest, and each and every word held so much sincerity that it made me cry along with him. He’s still someone I hope for the best for. He’s someone I always keep my eye on.”


Park Jin Young concluded by stating, “He’s someone I will always come running to if he needs my help. I’ve met many people who can dance, but in my eyes, he’s still the best person at filling up an entire stage by himself with his charisma.”

Rain Opens Up About How It Feels To Make His Long-Awaited Comeback As A Singer

J. Lim December 3, 2017

Rain recently opened up about making a comeback as a singer.

He appeared on MBC’s “Section TV” on December 3 to discuss a wide variety of topics and celebrate his 15th anniversary as a singer.


On how he felt about his recent comeback with “Gang,” Rain replied, “For the past four years, I’ve been busy with other things. I shot two dramas and did a few productions in China. But people kept telling me that they missed seeing my powerful performances on stage. So I went back to the mindset I first had 15 years ago and I worked really hard for this comeback. ‘Gang’ is the story of my life for the past 15 years.”




When asked whether it felt awkward to stand on stage again for the first time in a while, Rain said that it felt like coming home. He explained, “If I don’t work hard, I won’t be able to keep up with the younger singers. I at least wanted to show them what I can do as their senior.”


Rain recently made his comeback with his new mini album “My Life” on December 1. Don’t forget to check out the music video for his new title track “Gang.”

S. Park December 5, 2017

I wore a tuxedo that I already owned and [we] didn’t do a wedding photo shoot. We didn’t hire a photographer either. The guests acted as the photographers and we put those photos together and made a video.”






He continued, “Honestly, I have a lot of regrets [about the wedding]. There were lots of things I wanted to do for my wife on that day. I even opened an installment savings account for the wedding. The actual total cost of the wedding came out to a little over 2 million won [approximately $1,840].”

K-pop singer Rain is ready for new direction in life




Fifteen years ago, Rain was the Bad Guy – as he described a persona in the title of his debut song. The 35-year-old is now open to a new direction in life, he said recently while promoting his new EP called My Life Ae.

“I asked (the songwriters) to make me a song that doesn’t sound like me. I even consulted a separate rapping coach so I can rap in a way I’ve never tried before,” The Korea Herald cited him as saying.

“I think it is right for me to seek a challenge instead of stability.” Rain, who is married to actress Kim Tae Hee, became a father in October.

He said: “I’ve now reached Act Two of my life and it’s just an indescribable feeling … I want to raise (my daughter) as a person who can help the world.”

Rain, who is currently appearing on KBS singing competition show The Unit as a mentor, added that he is also relishing the opportunity to inspire younger singers. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
