Singer and actor Rain will put on a great joint show in Thailand upcoming August.

According to his management agency 'Cube Entertainment' on the 18th, Rain will have a performance at Sonic Bang, the best music festival in Thailand, on August 24th, which features many famous Korean and foreign musicians including Korea's Epik High, the U.S.'s top hip hop group 'Far East Movement' where a Korean-American member belongs, Jason Mraz, etc.

This will be Rain's first performance after his two years of military service last 2nd, which attracts fans' attention. However, Cube Entertainment said, "The schedule of the concert was set out before Rain's contracts with Cube, so this concert doesn't have very much to do with what he makes his comeback."

Continuing, "He hasn't even started working on an album yet. He'll begin to work in earnest after getting some rest as it hasn't been long since he was discharged from the army."

Cube Entertainment officially announced that Rain had newly signed on with the agency at the end of May.

Şarkıcı ve oyuncu Rain, Ağustosta Tayland’da büyük bir festivale çıkıyor! /// 19 Temmuz 2013

Bağlı olduğu şirket olan “Cube Entertainment”ın 18 Temmuzda yaptığı açıklamaya göre, Rain 24 Ağustos tariginde Tayland’ın en büyük müzik festivali olan Sonic Bang’de sahne alıcak. Bu festivalde bir çok Koreli ve yabancı dünya starları yer alıyor. Kore’den Epik High’ın da yer alacağı festivalde, Amerikalı hip hop grubu Far East Movement, Jason Mraz, Placebo, Pitbull gibi isimler yer alıyor.

Bu Rain’in 2 senelik askerliğinden sonra vereceği ilk konser olacağı için tüm hayranların ilgisini çekiyor. Cube Entertainment ise şöyle söyled: “Bu konserin planı Rain Cube Entertainment ile sözleşme imzalamadan önce yapılmıştı. Bu yüzden bu konserin Rain’in yapacağı comeback ile bir ilgisi bulunmuyor.”

Ve şöyle devam etti: “Yeni albümü üzerinde çalışmaya henüz başlamadı. Askeriyeden terhisi henüz daha yeni olduğundan dolayı, bir süre dinlendikten sonra çok yoğun bir şekilde çalışmalarına başlayacak.”

Cube Entertainment resmi olarak Rain’le anlaşma imzaladıklarını Mayıs ayında duyurmuştu.

Sunday, 14 July 2013


We have been receiving questions regarding whether or not RAIN will be performing
August 24, 2013 at the Sonic Bang festival in Thailand.

In more than one news article in the last couple of days Rain's new agency, CUBE Entertainment, has said through official staff:

     "As of yet, no concrete schedule has been outlined."

     “There isn’t any special schedule yet. We will consider his activities after his break.”

     "Instead of beginning working right now with a renewed mind, he needs to  consider various
     proposals, and to throw his future plans into shape."

Investigating more into Sonic Bang and Bec-Tero what we discovered July 13, 2013, was that reference to Rain in tweets and at Facebook by Sonic Bang have been removed.  Videos that had been up at youtube announcing that Rain would be at Sonic Bang are now set to private.  A video that appeared to be a news program showing footage from Rain's discharge and then showing footage of Rain performing with a voice over announcing Rain to be performing at Sonic Bang can no longer be accessed.  Attempts to load that site have an error message of "This webpage is not available."    

What does all of this mean?  It means we all need to be very careful.  As hard as it may be, it is safer to wait for CUBE Entertainment or RainyEnt to make announcements on Rain's behalf. 

For now we are willing to list it in the "maybe" column.

[11-Jul-2013]  Rain's visit to the US as his first step since his discharge, has not yet been determined.

English translation by 화니 at The Cloud

Some say that singer Rain (his real name, Jung Ji-Hoon) will go to the U.S. as his first step since he was discharged from the army, but Cube Entertainment representing him expresses regarding this, "It has not yet been determined."

Cube Entertainment, Rain's management company, told Star News on the 11th, "As of yet, no concrete schedule has been outlined. As Rain has received offers from various entertainment agencies, he is available to go to the U.S., but contrary to the rumors that he is going to go to the U.S in August or September, the date of the visit has not been definitely decided yet."

Before this, Rain was discharged from the Defense Media Agency located in Seoul's Yongsan-gu last 10th after making it through his 21-month military service.

As Rain has been discharged from military service, there is an extreme amount of focus on his future moves. Some say that he will go to the U.S. sometime around August or September, as part of his first step since his discharge.
Their claims are plausible because it has been known that Rain has already been received an offer from international artist 'Jay-Z's record label 'Roc Nation'.

However, one of Rain's allies said, "Rain has been in a situation where it's been just a day since he was fresh out of the army yesterday, and therefore there has not been any further discussion or any further movement on that. Instead of backing to the basics and immediately beginning working, he'll discuss future plans with his agency, looking over various proposals."

Meanwhile, after leaving the army base in which he had been serving around at 8am on the 10th, Rain gave his concise and clear thoughts in front of reporters and fans, saying, "I'll try harder from now on."

Although his look of stiffness was apparent due to a current controversy over entertainment soldiers' neglecting their duties, he was an imposing figure on the scene. which attracted attention.

Rain visited his mother's grave at Byukje Memorial Park, in Kyungki-do's Goyang city soon after his discharge. He plans to spend time with his family for the time being.

Discharged on July 10th with 100 local and foreign reporters waiting in front of the Department of Defense, Rain saluted and expressed his thoughts on his discharge, “I will do the best I can”.

He went straight to the memorial park to visit his mother’s grave. Rain gave a deep bow in front of her grave. He stood silently as he expressed his discharge news to his mother. Rain visited his mother’s grave on the day of entering the military in 2011 October 10th, and also on his discharge day.

After that, Rain went to Samsung-Dong to meet up with his family. During a teleconversation with Rain’s management company, Cube Entertainment told Star Today, “There isn’t any special schedule yet.  We will consider his activities after his break.”

In order to meet up with Rain after these long while, fans from Japan, China, Malaysia, Turkey and America as well as local fans of 700 came to the discharge venue. Some fans even followed Rain to the memorial park, as they took pictures of Rain.

10 or more fans even waited at Cube Entertainment, Cube Cafe. They wrote Rain’s name on placards as they wait for Rain’s uncertain arrival.

Meanwhile, Rain’s overseas activities that are expected to start in the second half of the year, have been moved to next year. He is currently excluded from official activities and is now spending time with his family.

Singer Rain greeting reporters after being discharged from the army on the 10th.

The site of the discharge was packed with masses of fans and reporters who had been waiting for him since early in the morning.

Singer Rain (aged 31, his real name is Jung Ji-Hoon) was discharged from the army on the 10th. He has been roiled by controversy since the actual status of the management of entertainment soldiers caused a stir, but his popularity and position as a "top star" have still been the same.

Completing 21months of active military service, Rain was discharged from the Defense Media Agency located in Seoul's Yongsan-gu at around 8am this morning.

More than 800 fans from home and abroad and more than 200 reporters gathered in the discharge site to see Rain being discharged from the army. And, police were even called to prevent possible accidents.

Particularly, it was a situation where there was an extreme amount of focus on what Rain would say as there was a recent controversy over the poor management of entertainment soldiers. After dashingly stepping out, he came to the salute in front of crowds of reporters, saying in a loud voice, "Loyalty!"

They could tell from his face that he was standing clearly with a stiff expression on his face, but he briefly greeted them soon after, "Thank you for coming here, and I'll always push myself to do my best." He got into the car that was waiting for him after making the statement. It was a discharge celebration which lasted only about 20 seconds.

There weren't any press interviews or celebration events. However, he asked the driver to pull over for a while and again appeared to his cheering fans on the scene to greet them. Some of his fans welcomed him warmly by holding placards saying '비의 제2막을 함께 하겠습니다' in their hands. ("We want to be with you who come back with a new second act" in English)

Fans who were there to meet Rain at the scene of his discharge on the 10th.

Meanwhile, actress Kim Tae-Hee who is openly considered as Rain's lover, didn't attend the discharge because of her busy schedules.

Rain who completed the short discharge, plans to spend time with his family for the time being after visiting his mother's grave at Byukje Memorial Park. He visited his mother's grave on 10 October 2011, one day before his enlistment.

Rain and Hong Seung-Sung, the representative of Cube Entertainment representing him, will discuss his future plans after having some quality time with his family.

During a phone call with Star News this day, an official from the company said, "Instead of beginning working right now with a renewed mind, he needs to consider various proposals, and to throw his future plans into shape."

Meanwhile, Rain was enlisted at 306 Supplement located in Uijeongbu City on 11 October 2011 and underwent basic military training for 5 weeks, and then he served as an assistant instructor at the 5th Division. In March last year, he had a change of assignment into an entertainment soldier by being transferred to the service support troop in the Defense Media Agency, part of the Defense Ministry.

Recently, SBS TV's June 25 current affairs TV show's in-depth coverage of entertainment soldiers neglecting their duties out of control, shocked a lot of people.

The Defense Ministry made an announcement at a regular briefing last 5th, "Rain'll be discharged from the army as previously arranged, and any disciplinary action won't be taken against him."  [NOTE: The Defense Ministry ruled that Rain violated no rules.  See  RLC]

Cube Entertainment which is supposed to represent Rain expressed on the 9th, "Rain will be discharged from the Defense Media Agency located in Seoul's Yongsan-gu on the morning of the 10th "

Considering Rain's first public appearance since the actual management status of entertainment soldiers recently came under controversy, crowds of reporters are expected to swarm the scene of the discharge.

According to the management company, Rain'll give a brief greeting to reporters and his fans, but there won't be any celebration and press interviews. This measure seems to be attributed to a recent controversy over the slack military discipline at the public information support services in which entertainment soldiers are serving.

Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry said that they would take decisive action after finishing up their inspections throughout the Defense Media Agency and the military public information support service this week, and that Rain would be discharged from military service as previously arranged.

Army colonel Wui Yong-Seop, the press officer of the Defense Ministry, said at a regular briefing last 5th, "The military has concluded that no disciplinary action will be taken against Rain in connection with the controversy, and that he'll be discharged from the army on the 10th as arranged."

Wui added, "After a concert at that time, Rain had dinner with military officials, not with other entertainment soldiers, and then he went back to the lodge to sleep." "Even though he drank at the dinner table, it is easy enough to see how it happened, in a sense of deriving encouragement under the supervision of the officers."  [Please see ]

Rain will be discharged from military as planned on 10th… Ministry of National Defense would give him no punishment.

Among the controversy around the reality of the military services done by entertainment soldiers, the singer Rain (Jung Ji-Hoon) will be discharged from the military as previously arranged on coming 10th.

Colonel Wi Yong-Sup from Ministry of National Defense talked about the situation of the progression of the specialized investigation about the reality of entertainment soldiers’ military services which became the controversy through the recent report given by SBS ‘Site 21’, in the Cabinet meeting held in the briefing room of the Ministry of National Defense in Seoul, Yongsan-gu, on 5th. According to Ministry of National Defense, the soldier Jung Ji-Hoon has nothing related to the controversy surrounding the entertainment soldiers’ military services, and he will be discharged on 10th as previously arranged without punishment.

Rain had been in the center of controversy when SBS ‘Site 21’, which was broadcast on 25th of last month, reported the scene of him having meal and drinking alcohol outside after the performance of consolation for soldiers. About this, Ministry of National Defense said “Rain came back later after the consolation performance, and couldn’t have a meal with other soldiers. Therefore, after he had meal with the executives, he came back to his lodgings and went to sleep.” About the suspicion toward drinking alcohol, it was explained that “even if Rain had drunken alcohol, it was caused by the order given by the executive. The commanders could have offered him to drink in terms of encouragement.”

The result of other entertainment soldiers’ specialized investigation will be notified on next week. According to the Ministry of National Defense, the investigation of other entertainment soldiers, excluding Rain, and the commanders in charge of those will be proceeded as scheduled, and the investigation will be finished in next week, followed by strict action.

Continuing, "We've been investigating the allegations that the persons in charge have been entertained regarding the business affairs of military broadcasting 'Consolatory Train' run by the Defense Media Agency." and "When the results of the inspection are in, the relevant soldiers will strictly be disciplined in accordance with law."

Since the testimony of the relevant soldiers who held a drinking party and who visited a massage parlor and that of witnesses are not consistent, the special inspection team is known to have done a lot of legwork in an effort to find an eyewitness regarding the soldiers' whereabouts last (June) 21st when the incident occurred.

In particular, it is known that Rain went back to the lodge after he arrived at the place and checked in, went to his room, unpacked, had dinner when a local concert featuring those soldiers including him ended after 9:00 p.m. at that time.

An official from the Defense Ministry said, "We judge Rain had no problem of his whereabouts on that day. He'll leave the army on the 10th as scheduled."

It has been known that serious problems have surfaced as a result of the inspection of the status of the management and operation of the service support troop.

[01-Jul-2013]Rain expresses his willingness to give up a vacation granted to sergeants with little time left in the army. He is due to leave the army on the 10th.

Multiple authorities and military officials told Star News on the 1st, singer Rain who is currently serving as a public information services support soldier in the Defense Media Agency, has willingly given up a third vacation which is available to sergeants with little time left in the army. This shows that Rain expresses his determined will to be faithful to his duties during his military service.

While suspicions have risen about a recent case believed attributable to slack military discipline, Rain's move could raise suspicions that he may settle a controversy. But apart from the situation, Rain has been planning to give up his vacation of 9 nights of his own accord, according to his closest advisers.

It has been said that Rain has taken time for self-examination since he caused controversy due to the excessive outing for dating his lover Kim Tae-Hee last January.  [ Read more on DEMA's findings. ]

Military officials said, "Vacations granted to the relevant soldiers who have recently violated military rules, have temporarily come to a stop during the inspection period, but Rain can take the rest of his regular vacation because he is about to leave the army. However, he has willingly given up his vacation and decided to be inspected by the Defense Ministry."

Another military official added, "Sergeant Jung Ji-Hoon is very careful in everything not to cause trouble because the discharge date is not far off." and "Jung will not be directly affected by a controversy surrounding the current situation of entertainment soldiers' military service because he gets out of the army on the 10th."
