MTV Spotted: Rain Creates A Stir In China.
[Cloud USA] MTV USA has a nice Spotted write-up on Rain’s presence at European luxury brand MCM’s mini-salon opening in Shanghai yesterday, July 28.
As you recall, the last time we saw Rain in Spotted! was back in December 2009, when they captured him on stage at Legend of Rainism Las Vegas.
They are watching our man. Really watching our man, now. And we are so pleased, you cannot imagine. Ji-Hoon so deserves this kind of exposure in the States. He has so much to offer the American public and so much more to offer us here, if only he’s given the chance.
We appreciate this tremendously.

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
The fact that high-level fashion outlet MCM opened a store in Shanghai, China is a big deal in and of itself, but the organizers of the grand opening knew exactly how to turn the who thing into a gigantic event. Most grand openings will try to get a big list of stars to walk up, but MCM only really needed one: South Korean pop star/actor/model/independent industry Rain. The star made his way to the brand new store on Wednesday (July 28), where he attracted huge throngs of rabid, devoted fans. For those not in the know, Rain’s star power and influence stretches all across the world, combining the sort of fervor reserved for the likes of Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Eminem. He’s huge, and he continues to make inroads into new places (including the United States, where his film “Ninja Assassin” and the single “Hip Song” have both raised his profile profoundly).
He wasn’t the only star smiling for the cameras, as 50 Cent attended the premiere of the new movie “Twelve” (which stars Chace Crawford and 50 himself) and the Strokes prepared for their big Lollapalooza set next weekend with a show in Australia. Click here for these photos as well as the entire “Spotted” archive, which features over 400 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, the Jonas Brothers, Madonna, Rihanna, Diddy and Justin Timberlake!
