[info][from Dot][Cloud USA video] UPDATE: Cloud USA’s Birthday Wishes Cake for Rain.

•July 28, 2014 • 8 Comments


(Rain’s birthday “cake” contains messages from Clouds in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Faroe Islands, Malaysia, France, Hungary, Ukraine, Brazil, Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, and Spain. Thanks to every one of you! ♥)

Way back in late April, Stephe asked me for input in regards to Jung JiHoon’s birthday this year, and fortunately I had seen an idea on Facebook or Pinterest perhaps, and I sent it to her. That was when the Birthday Wishes Cake for Rain project was born! I’ve been the Activities Director for Cloud USA for a while now, but we really haven’t had the opportunity to do something together, so I quickly volunteered to head the project.

I had no idea how challenging it would be but, in the same breath, I’m very happy that I volunteered. This has been a lot of fun. It has given me the opportunity to be creative and also to meet a lot of new Cloud sisters. *waves to everyone*

When Stephe first posted the project, I was worried that people wouldn’t participate and the “cake” might end up being a “cupcake.” :D But so many of you came forward and I started seeing your contributions and requests pop into my email. I like to think my volunteering to make messages for those not so creative helped to give Clouds who usually wouldn’t have participated an opportunity to be a part of our project. And BOY, there was a lot of those, 57 to be exact. (Phew!) It was so much fun to let my creativity flow when formatting messages on backgrounds that I hope everyone will be proud of.

That being said, those that had the time and/or ability to create their own messages did an amazing job. It was so thrilling to see them come in and see how everyone showed their love and appreciation to Jung JiHoon. I did have to edit some of the contributions to fit the required size, so if you see your message and it’s changed, please forgive me and I hope the edits I made have done them justice.







I’ve included photos of the “baking” process in this post, the gathering of materials, the cutting, and the rolling of 139 messages in total. And WOW, thank you all for that, as it enabled us to have a two- tier cake.

Getting the messages on the cake turned out to be the most challenging part, but I figured it out. (I apologize if some pictures are a little blurry. My cell phone doesn’t have the greatest camera.)

I hope everyone is pleased with the way it turned out. Thank you again to Stephe and Terri for letting me mange the project, and a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who participated. Let’s hope it brought a smile to Jung JiHoon.

We have been notified that his cake did arrive at its destination.

The assistant general manager of Chinese gaming portal YZZ.cn posted images from movie director Gao Xixi’s Difficult Love presentation at this promotional event. Very cool! Rain’s Chinese film will be premiering in Asia in November of this year, and looks like it’s going to be a real tearjerker. Get your hankies ready! ㅜ.ㅜ :) (Images credit: 风贼 / fengzei @Weibo)

Popular idol group Got7 got down live on M!Countdown with a medley of Rain’s hit songs on 7/24, namely “Escaping the Sun”, “It’s Raining”, “Rainism”, and “LA Song.” I really enjoyed how they put their own little spin on some of the moves, heheh.

Thanks to Willenette @ the Rain Official Music Thread on SOOMPI for the tip! :) ^@@^

As we understand it, BamBam of Got7 took to his Instagram the same day to thank his seonbae-nim (Senior) Rain for helping them prepare. Very sweet. We like. :)

Sexy movie, musical, and K-drama actor Shin SungWoo wears many hats (music producer and composer, director, singer, sculptor). He’s also a biker and avid motorcycle enthusiast, and it looks like that is something he and his junior Rain have in common. Thank you for sharing your picture, SungWoo씨.^^ (Image credit: shin_sungwoo @Instagram, posted 7/24/2014)

“My bro… Rain!”

* My observation: I believe SungWoo씨’s picture is from August 2011, from the day Rain tweeted from Sokcho about getting caught out in the street, 2 months before going into the military. Rain’s wardrobe is completely the same, right down to the accessories. ^@@^
