(Remember when Rain and “big bro” Ronnie Yang went to Everland shortly before Rain enlisted in the military? That ginormous sun visor over his face actually worked and he had a good time! He did not have to do a “YoungJae” in the toilet in Full House, haha.^^ Whisker alert! Come reminisce with me! ^@@^)

Cloud cover by Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^

**NOTE: If you were on our bulk order list to get this hat, you should have received an Update email from me on Friday, February 10, that R.A.I.N. Company has canceled international bulk orders in favor of online ordering at Gmarket.

very soon…

A post shared by RAIN♥ (@rain_oppa) on

Hi, all! R.A.I.N. Company has put the snapback hat Rain personally designed for fans on Gmarket, and the limited online sale started a few hours ago at 8 PM Sunday night (February 12)! For those of you who might want one, here is what you need to know:

•  The English language order page is HERE: → http://bit.ly/2lv64zQ

•  The hat price is $29.oo USD. Gmarket’s quoted international shipping price is around $30.00 USD, give or take. (We know… steep!)

•  As I understand it, the sale will last for as long as the hats last. Quantities are limited.

For anyone who is not familiar with shopping on Gmarket and is having problems following the order process, I’ve made screenshot instructions from when I put in my personal order. I hope it helps! Please see those below:

[2 clips][fan cam] From Stephe’s desk: Some of my favorite Rain ballads… and why. (#1 & 2)

•August 18, 2017 • 3 Comments

I want to know what your favorite Rain ballads are too, and why you love them. Please share! 🙂 ^@@^

“Because of You” (Eternal Rain, 2006). The favorite of my favorites, played more in my car than any other!

Setting the scene: It was December 2009, near Christmas.  (It would be another month before Cloud USA was even born.) I’d been a Rain fan all by my lonesome for 2 – 3 years, and Terri was brand spanking new, just becoming one since we’d seen newly released Ninja Assassin twice in theaters a month earlier (November). I was feeling bummed out one night because Rain was coming to the U.S. for his Legend of Rainism concert tour stop in Las Vegas and I couldn’t go, so I went on YouTube, hunted down an earlier LoR stop (the very first one, at Saitama Super Arena in Japan), and watched the whole two and a half hour concert in my living room, the next best thing. Sort of like being in Vegas in spirit…^^

You know the drill. Add your favorite dressing, stir well with your fork, and dig in! 😛

Fan made. Sexy Rain. By one of my favorite Clouds on YouTube, dear Soorain. This also includes a glimpse of that incredibly HOT “Nan” performance in Daegu (2007) that about burned our eyes out. O_O

•August 14, 2017 • 1 Comment

This month’s theme is Rain’s long relationship with Harper’s Bazaar Magazine. In particular, a few images from Harper’s Bazaar China (sporting MCM fashion) and Harper’s Bazaar Korea (wearing H&M and other brands in New York City) in 2014, and in Korea earlier this year with wife Kim Tae Hee, wearing Dior and other delectable things.

They look better “fitted” or “centered” depending on size, but please feel free to display them however you like.

Just right-CLICK and save them to your hard-drive. Enjoy! 🙂 ^@@^

[2 clips][Eng trans] Kim Kwang Min gives Rain a call on MBCeveryone1’s Video Star, Ep. 54. (7/18)

•July 23, 2017 • 3 Comments

— Cloud cover by Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^

I have to give Rain’s longtime friend, actor Kim Kwang Min, props here. It’s never easy for anyone to admit their shortcomings, much less on TV in front of, like, everybody. And for him to be able to get out of his feelings, look back, and understand that Rain was acting as a friend (not something many people can do, take criticism), he’s a pretty cool guy. These two have worked together on K-dramas A Love To Kill, The Fugitive: Plan B, My Lovely Girl, and upcoming Chinese TV drama Endless August.

Translation begins around a minute into the first video. » For more about what was said before that, see the second SOOMPI News article in my previous post HERE. Thanks to our Sunnypeony for her hard work! ^@@^

[articles] Rain check: Of a bad tenant, a good friend, and Cloud USA in the news.

•July 23, 2017 • 8 Comments

Well, peeps, if Rain re-posting from our Instagram wasn’t cool enough, it also landed Cloud USA in the Korean news (Nate, Newsen, eNews 24, etc.) and on Naver blogs. They must be watching his social media like a hawk! The gist of these write-ups is how Rain revealed a refreshing, handsome appearance [in a picture] of him picking out dessert in a café, how he re-uploaded the picture onto his Instagram from his U.S. fan account, and how even with sunglasses and a hat he could not hide [all that handsomeness]. True, oh, so true.^^

[29 images][2 making of][CF] Rain Ad Campaign of the Day: Nikon, part 4 of 4. (2010)

The materials from Rain’s Nikon campaigns is so extensive, I had to break them up into parts to survive trying to post it all. Are we really — finally — at the end of this thing? Onwards, then! I hope you’ve enjoyed our journey. 🙂

Winter/Spring 2010. After all of that running around Seoul and other places with Rain using his photography skills, Nikon put all of his images together in a D5000 series photo exhibition for the public. I can’t remember if the camera package presented to that lucky winner was a giveaway or an auction, but I do remember that the event happened earlier in the month, online, and all the dude had to do was come and pick his prize up from Rain. ^@@^
