[01.30.09] Will Rain Return to Drama After 4 Years?

Posted in Rain with tags on January 31, 2009 by koala41


The possibility of Rain’s comeback to drama acting is growing. Perhaps even in the second half of this year.

A close source said, “Rain was going to be in a local drama last year, but it didn’t fit his schedule and so it was delayed. This year he’s likely to make his comeback in a drama.”

Rain’s last acting work in Korea was in 2006 with the movie “I’m a Cyborg, but It’s OK,” directed by Park Chan Wook. His last drama was four years ago in 2005 with the KBS 2TV drama “A Love To Kill.”

Writer Lee Kyung Hee, who worked on “A Love To Kill,” mentioned that he would work with Rain in his acting comeback last year, but it was delayed. “It’s yet to be determined,” he said.

Rain will consider domestic proposals for his next drama, and review scripts carefully.

This summer, his second Hollywood movie, “Ninja Assassin,” will be released.

As promised, Rain has begun launching his Korean comeback in earnest, and November’s a busy magazine month for the star, who’s gracing not one but two fashion covers. He shot spreads for the November issues of Esquire (above) and Harper’s Bazaar (below).

With his fifth album — the awkwardly titled “Rainism” — just released on October 15, I foresee lots more Rain news in the making in the coming months.

Reason Behind Rain Appearing On Numerous Variety Shows

Posted in Rain with tags , on October 16, 2008 by koala41

For his 5th album comeback, Rain (26) has been confirmed for appearances on top variety shows on the 3 major television networks in Korea. Why has Rain decide to appear on these representative variety shows all of a sudden? This serves as a sharp contrast with the past when he released his previous four albums under JYP Entertainment and rarely appeared on variety shows.

Rain had stopped promotions in Korea for the past 2 years, filtering instead between America and Germany for his movies. Although he has become a global star, the interaction between him and his fans has been minimal. In his absence, idol groups like Big Bang, Wonder Girls have stepped up, fulfiling the general public demands. This is why Rain is seeking to actively participate on variety shows upon his return and with his album release incoming.

According to J. Tunes Entertainment, “Because of his overseas work commitments, there isn’t much chance for Rain to interact with his fans. Rain actually wants to interact with his fans very much. So to repay his fans, he is pushing himself to appear on as much variety shows as he can.”

The representative added, “Rain’s 5th album is the first that his company is releasing under his name since breaking out from JYP Entertainment. Rain feels that the album will have a bearing on the company’s success or failure. So he is going all out to make sure it’s a success because he knows everyone is expecting a lot from him and he holds himself responsible.”

Actress Kim Sun Ah was at Rain’s showcase “Me, Rain, Dance” last night, performing the tango version of Rain’s song “Bad Guy”, executing it perfectly.

During their performance, Kim Sun Ah showed that her dancing ability was definitely on par with a pro which liven up the whole stage. She expressed, “I pay close attention to dancing normally so I decided to appear for this program because it would be a good experience. Although the preparation time was short, all the sweat from training, smiles, the rythmn and dance moves were like blissful presents to me. I want to expressed my thanks from the bottom of my heart to Rain for bringing a new lease of life to my normal lifestyle.”

Kim Sun Ah had gone through intensive training for the past 2 weeks and managed to remember all the tango moves within 3 days, showing the charisma of a professional actress. To thank Sun Ah for her support at his comeback showcase, Rain prepared a birthday party for her. Rain made a surprise visit on 1st October at the dance studio and had a impromptu birthday party for Kim Sun Ah together with all the staff. Rain also gave her a birthday present.

Kim Sun Ah and Rain’s fantasy tango will be shown through MBC on 17th October through the broadcast of his “Me, Rain, Dance” showcase.
