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 images] Uhm Bok Dong movie check: 비 wants you to see… (4/23)

… that he’s on set for his new movie, where he’ll portray winning cyclist, activist, and national hero Uhm Bok Dong (b.1892 – d.1951). As you may recall, the filming location is Hapcheon Image Theme Park in Gyeongnam.

Now, I must say that the image I came across first, after he posted, puzzled the heck out of me. One of his hashtags was #beautysalon (#미용실, mi-yong-shil) but as far as I could tell the sign over the door (숙이구이, that font was killing me!) said “steak grill” or “lean grill.” I was pretty sure I’d effed up something and didn’t know what the heck I was doing, hahaha. ^@@^

But then Cloud sunnypeony tipped me off on Twitter that Raincloudhk posted this was a restaurant beside the salon. Eureka! Thank goodness I wasn’t just losing my mind.

And Rain’s pic of the beauty salon popped up. Yaaaaaay^^ ^@@^

As far as I can tell, the caption on the left and the sign on the right say the same thing — Uhm Bok Dong movie location, “Hapcheon Image Theme Park.” ^@@^

The first part of this video is about where Rain’s upcoming movie Uhm Bok Dong will start filming this month — Hapcheon Image Theme Park, in Gyeongnam, about 200 miles south of Seoul. Bravo Gyeongnam’s YouTube channel comments about the movie park are as follows:

“Built in 2004, Hapcheon Image Theme Park is Korea’s open set for filming movies and dramas in the background of 1920’s to 80’s. There have been more than 67 works of music videos, movies, and dramas filmed including ‘Bridal Mask’, ‘East of Eden’, ‘Capital Scandal’, ‘Sunny’, and ‘Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War.’ There are broadcasting experience programs, movie costumes wearing experience programs, and more to enjoy.”

No, we’re not, quite frankly (surprised by these results). Just sayin. 🙂

10 Wealthiest Korean stars in terms of real estate holdings

Wealth can be measured in various ways, and real estate is a prime example.

During its April 18 broadcast, SBS’s “Night of Real Entertainment” took a look at the 10 Korean celebrities who currently hold the most amount of real estate, after recent news of Jun Ji Hyun’s recent purchase of a multi-million dollar building in the Gangnam district of Seoul.

The actress now holds 77 billion won (approximately $67.7 million) worth of real estate, making her the second wealthiest in terms of property holdings. In a previous assessment back in 2014, Jun Ji Hyun was notably the only female in the list of wealthy stars based on similar factors, and had placed seventh at the time.

SM Entertainment’s founder Lee Soo Man maintains his spot in first place, with 110 billion won (approximately $96.6 million) in real estate, while YG Entertainment’s founder Yang Hyun Suk also continues in third place, holding around 53.1 billion won (approximately $46.7 million) of property.

Singers Rain and Seo Taiji are in fourth and fifth place, with holdings worth 43.8 billion won (approximately $38.5 million) and 41 billion won (approximately $36 million) respectively.

Actors Jang Geun Suk, Jo Jae Hyun, Kwon Sang Woo, and Song Seung Hun follow in sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth place, respectively. Jang Geun Suk owns 38 billion won (approximately $33.4 million) in real estate, Jo Jae Hyun owns 36 billion won (approximately $31.6 million), Kwon Sang Woo owns 35 billion won (approximately $30.8 million), while Song Seung Hun owns 33.4 billion won (approximately $29.3 milllion).

In 10th place is entertainer and retired athlete Seo Jang Hoon, whose property holdings worth 30.9 billion won (approximately $27.2 million) were recently revealed to the public.

Are you surprised by these results?

[5 images] Instagrams abound: Rain gives back on the golf course. (4/11)

As I understand it, amateur golfer and enthusiast Rain was invited to the Samchully Together Open 2017 (a stop on the LPGA Tour in South Korea) to encourage and support new golfers. He was there wearing Bridgestone and looking like a million bucks (of course!). Big thanks to sunnypeony @ Twitter and Raincloudhk @ Weibo for this tip, and to the young ladies who shared their pictures from the golf course. (Note: The official dates for this open are 4/13 through 4/16, according to the KLPGA. I believe these ladies were part of the pro-am event on 4/11.) ^@@^
