There are SO many polling opportunities out there that include Rain, that it’s often difficult to tell which ones are important and which aren’t. Let me be frank. Most of them aren’t important. That is the main reason you don’t see Cloud USA promoting them, because although they are fun, most of these popularity polls truly don’t matter much in the long run, and we know your time is precious.
However, this one is different. This one IS important. Why?
Well, for those of you who don’t know, the MNet Asian Music Awards, held annually by CJ E&M through its music network television channel MNet, is one of the most IMPORTANT events in the South Korean music industry. It’s a big deal.
Luckily, the MAMAs poll is also of the few critical Korean music industry polls that global fans actually get a chance to influence through their international online poll. YAY for us!
Rain has won 5 MAMA’s during his music career and has been nominated for 9 of them. This year’s event is also a special award ceremony to us Clouds, because this is the first time Rain has been nominated for the MAMAs awards since he completed his military service and made his comeback last year.
Lucky for us, Rain did manage to prepare a short performance for the MAMAs show last year. And what an amazing performance it was—so exciting for those of us who had missed him so terribly while he was away. (In case you missed that stellar performance, you can still watch it on MNet’s Official YouTube Channel. ♥)
The bottom line is if you are going to spend your precious time voting for Rain online somewhere, then please do it here. Your participation will mean a lot not just to Rain, but also to us here at Cloud USA and beyond.
You will find The MAMAs’ voting poll pages here:

Rain has been nominated in 4 categories:
- #2 – Best Male Artist

- # 16 – Union Pay Artist of the Year
- #17 – Union Pay Song of the Year
(Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the arrows to maneuver between categories.)

You are allowed to vote ONCE per day per account (I.e., MNet ID/Facebook page/Twitter account). So, if you have multiple accounts, you should be able to vote multiple times per day.
After you vote, you’ll receive a ROSE for voting. Please send your ROSE to RAIN.
You must send him a rose so that his star ranking will go up. The star who collects the most roses each day will get a special promotional banner displayed on his/her MAMA voting page the next day!
Right now, Rain is at #24 in the star ranking. So, please vote for RAIN and remember to send him a rose to help push his star ranking even higher. ♥
Don’t forget to also watch the awards show in December to cheer Rain on. The details of the ceremony event are listed below.
Wishing you all many lovely Rainy days. ♥
