(2011: With the MILLION Rain pictures out there now after 15 years, it’s damn near impossible to name just one favorite! But out of the huge group of favorites I do have, this has to the The One.❤ Remember when this first came from The Korean Cloud and we were all trying to figure out what it was for? Then word came down that Rain was the brand new face & body for MENtholatum Skincare for Men, in China. And he still is, to this day. It ain’t broke, so Mentholatum China ain’t fixing it.:) Image credit: J.Tune / The Cloud. ^@@^)

[topic thread][SPOILERS] Round 2: What Clouds and fans are watching right now… Come Back, Mister!

There are waaay too many good shows of all kinds on TV and online these days and we need a place to dish about ’em, am I right? On top of that, you’ve had time to watch and digest and mull over the first few episodes of Rain’s new SBS drama Come Back, Mister. What say you about the show? Let’s discuss! ^@@^

WE GOT SPOILERS. Please back out of here & DON’T SCROLL unless you’re good with that.

The previous Cloud-watching post from 11/19/2015 – 2/28/2016 is HERE^@@^

[info][list] Korean entertainer Rain is not having concerts in Washington, D.C. (see full list of cities).

•November 4, 2015 • 9 Comments

PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION SO THAT FANS DON’T MISTAKENLY LOSE THEIR HARD-EARNED MONEY.

oopsThe U.S. concerts at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. that Clouds and fans are currently finding on ticketing agencies online are NOT for 비 Rain (a.k.a. Jung JiHoon).

Those concerts, dated March 8 – 9, 2016, are concerts for the U.S. rock and roll band Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. Some ticketing sites are displaying Bi Rain’s pictures by mistake (how ridiculous!), and fans are leaving reviews about Rain by mistake — they don’t know these are not his concerts.

There are multiple ticketing sites contributing to this problem. I’ll use this one for an example.

[series][fan cam][7 videos] From Stephe’s desk: Rain’s Japanese songs in the order I like ’em. (Finally #1!)

I’ve always admitted that, even though Rain hypnotizes the heck out of me when singing in his native Korean tongue, when he sings in Japanese, every endorphin in my nervous system melts down like a nuclear reactor. Don’t know why. Can’t figure it out.❤ It is what it is! Under those circumstances, it’s waaaay past time for me to share with y’all the 15 songs Rain sings in Japanese and English — that I know of — in the order I like them.

I’d love for you to share your favs, too.:)


1FINALLY! In my #1 spot: The Japanese version of “Love Song”, on his Back To The Basic (2010) mini album’s Japanese edition. *yassssssssssss*

I remember waiting with bated breath, along with everyone else, for fan cams from Rain’s first ZEPP Japan tour back in the summer of 2010. It was such an exciting time and he was his usual workaholic self — winning MTV’s very first Biggest Badass Star Award in Los Angeles, filming The Fugitive: Plan B, doing the ZEPP concert tour, making CFs for the new “Rain” phone for sponsor SK Telesys, etc. When the videos started trickling in, they were awesome. And I was floored because Rain sang “Love Song” completely in Japanese.

Now, I understand he that he recorded it in that language for Back To The Basic‘s Japanese edition, but come on. There’s a world of difference between recording a song in a booth (where you can have notes if you need them) and singing it live in front of native speakers when it’s not your native language…

One more day to celebrate, one more year completed, one more reason to drink a pitcher of margaritas. LOL~

Hope you’re enjoying your time off, eonni.

I wish you many, many more birthdays and things that make you smile. (Yes, I include RAIN on that list!)
