[52/91 weeks done][song of the wk][calendar] 비 Yourself Open Thread for 10/9 – 10/15.
» 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.)
Please NOTE: As Rain mentioned on his Speeding Instinct show on Friends 96.7 FM military radio this past weekend, he and KCM will not be hosting Speeding this coming weekend due to a conflicting event on their schedules.
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, 6131 yellow ribbons for Rain have been added to Twitter and Facebook icons since the Brigade was started. 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: “You Already Knew (Almyeonseo) 알면서”, Track 2 on Rain’s second album, Rain2: How To Avoid The Sun (2003). Rain’s talented pipes wrapped around this tune so wonderfully. We can’t ever hear this song without thinking about SangDoo! Can you?
