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 variousproposals, 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.
