Getting to the bottom of RAINmaggedon 2013
Because we wouldn’t give Korean netizens a glass of water right now if they were on fire. » [LOL] Our U.S. Netizens on Rain & Kim Tae Hee.
The Center for Military Human Rights is concerned about Rain’s treatment and that of his fellow soldiers. » Tweets abound: Dignity for Soldiers.
The Korean Media is now purposely ignoring official updated statements from the military and Rain’s management, and continuing to only print misinformation and the early untruths to feed the witch-hunt on Rain, and thus, their ratings. The Korean Media in general gives new meaning to the term “bottom-feeding.” » [articles] Rain’s lodging issues explained.
The verdict is in, and the earth is saved from destruction. » [article] Rain who violated the decree on military service, is placed under a period of probation of one week.
By Snail Mail: » [info][Cloud USA] Operation: Tie A Yellow Ribbon.
Through the ROK military (at DEMA): [info] Overseas fans: Please leave a message of support for Corporal Rain on DEMA’s website.
By Twitter and/or Facebook: As of this moment, 6524 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: “Oh Yeah” featuring A.I., from Rain’s Japanese album Eternal Rain (September 2006) and his Vol. 4 album Rain’s World (October 2006). An amazing singer in her own right, A.I. returned the favor, also in 2006, by featuring Rain on her What’s Goin’ On A.I. album with a HOT number by the name of “Too Much.” Rain completely in Japanese (Oh Yeah) and Rain completely in English (Too Much)… I mean, what more could you doggone want? A.I., girl, we owe you. (By the way, “Too Much” was our Song of the Week back when Rain had only been in the military for 11 weeks.)
