Terri’s Take: “The Best Present”

I think Stephe said it best in her own words: “Rain’s voice is of the heavens. The song is DOPE. The choreography is SICK.  The music video visuals are to die for.”  All I can say is AMEN to that.  I would, however, like to share my own take on the subject of Rain’s newest release, “The Best Present.”  Hopefully, you won’t mind.  :-}

Some of you Cloud USA newbies may not know me.  Why?  Well, I’m kind of quiet.  I have a demanding job and work long hours (sort of like Rain, only I don’t dance and sing, and if I did either of those things in front of you, you would definitely regret it).  So, I usually leave the blog in Stephe’s extremely capable hands.

On the other hand, that doesn’t mean I’m not around.  I’m constantly working on things behind the scenes here at Cloud USA.  I keep our website maintained, answer emails, work on long-term projects, pay the bills.  That sort of thing.  I guess you could say I’m basically the silent partner.  (Or rather the NOT-so-silent partner, as Stephe would likely say.  :-P.)

Rain’s and beloved Korean actress Kim Tae Hee’s touching wedding took place today at 2 PM at Gahoe-dong Catholic Church in Jongno-gu, Central Seoul. (A “dong” is a neighborhood, and “gu” is the district or county.) The pastel-tinted reception was at the elegant SkyFarm Restaurant. Reports say that there were 100 guests, JYP sang “You’re The One”, and Honey Lee (Rain’s Please Come Back, Mister cast mate, a.k.a. Lee Ha Nui) caught the bouquet!

Some of you have already heard the breaking news: Rain kept his word and let us Clouds and fans know first by handwritten letter on his social media that he is going to marry his longtime lady love, actress Kim Tae Hee. He is not leaving his career — he still has lots more singing and acting to do for us, and goals to fulfill. But, after 16 years, many of his fans have gone on to establish households and have kids, and he wants that too, like any normal human being (he’s 35, for Pete’s sake!). He’s the only son and the eldest child (out of 2) in his family. It’s important, donchaknow? Especially when he’s fortunate enough to be deeply in love. 

(By the way: Terri’s “The Best Present” lyrics — English and Romanized — are now up on the Rain Discography page in our homepages. An incredibly romantic wedding song… what a surprise, NOT.^^)

Our heartfelt congratulations to The.Man.We.Love! It’s about doggone time. This next era should be pretty interesting, and will hopefully involve The Return of Superman, keke~

This is for you, Rain. ^@@^ :-}
