[51/91 weeks done][song of the wk][calendar] 비 Yourself Open Thread for 10/2 – 10/8.
» You can visit the previous Open Thread HERE. And of course, don’t forget that our Cloud USA Forum is a most excellent place for Rain love, fan communication, and self-expression. By the way — have you left a message for JiHoon on The Cloud today? Our Project page for newbies on how to register for and USE the Official Cloud Rain Fan Club site in S.Korea is HERE.)
No news is good news: No further word has been released on Rain’s condition of late, dear fans, since RAINY Entertainment’s initial notice back on 9/25, and that isn’t a bad thing. That, and the fact that his October schedule on his official fan site hasn’t been populated with events yet, simply means that they are biding their time and continuing to let him recover without the pressure of stuff on his plate, as they should. As many of you know, back problems are tricky and unpredictable. It’s a feel-your-way, wait-and-see situation. Continue to take anything you see out there about events and Rain appearances with a grain of salt. That’s just the way it’s going to be, for now. Waiting for good info is just part of being a Cloud, it always will be, and we should pretty much be used to it by now. So, chin UP, and please keep the letters and positive thoughts going to Rain.
He is FINE (well, that too, but you know what I mean. He’s OKAY.)
R2B: Return to Base has touched down on tarmacs in South Korea, the U.S. and Canada, and is on its way around the world. It has premiered in Vietnam and Thailand; now Hong Kong and Singapore are set for October, and Malaysia is set for November. Japan is set for December. Let’s see where else this bird is going to land!
Don’t be thrown off by the name changes in some countries. That kind of thing happens all the time in the industry, and it is for the good of the movie. For instance, I hear tell that when Captain America: The First Avenger was released in Russia, the Russian authorities decided to drop the “Captain America” because “The First Avenger” would play better to their audiences (for political reasons, I’ll bet, and I agree). It’s about getting more people into the theater. Everyone on the planet connects Soar Into The Sun, R2B, and Return to Base with RAIN, anyway. It’s no big deal, folks.
As of this moment, 6054 yellow ribbons for Rain have been added to Twitter and Facebook icons everywhere. Amazing! Thanks for supporting our favorite corporal during his military service and for letting him know you’ll be waiting when he gets home! » For a brief read about the meaning of the Yellow Ribbon, go to our previous post HERE.
SONG OF THE WEEK: “Am I Not Good Enough / Why Not Me? (Naron Andoni / Narun Andwaeni) 나론 안되니”, featuring Hooni Hoon and Ho InChang, Track 9 on Rain’s debut album n001 (2002). A catchy little tune if I ever heard one! Baby Boy was working that beat.

Rain is Eternal. Where clouds stay gathered, rain will always come. It is inevitable.
