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.

SONG OF THE WEEK: “Not A Single Day (Harudo) 하루도”, Track 5 on his Vol. 4 album Rain’s World (2006). This has been an old favorite for many years across the Rainiverse, and he knows it, because he’s included it in every concert tour since the song hit back in the day. If you’ve never had the chance to read the lyrics, some English subs are HERE. The song lyrics have also been translated into Turkish, Spanish, and probably Japanese and some other languages, so hit YouTube up for those subs and enjoy this smooth, heartbreaking tune.
