[topic thread][SPOILERS] Round 2: What Clouds and drama fans are watching right now…

•May 17, 2016 • 71 Comments


There are waaay too many good shows of all kinds on TV in many countries and online these days and we need a place to dish about ’em, am I right? What say you? Let’s discuss! ^@@^

WE GOT SPOILERS. Please back out of here & DON’T SCROLL unless you’re good with that.

The previous Cloud-watching post from 2/29/2016 – 5/17/2016 is HERE^@@^

[info][list] Korean entertainer Rain is not having concerts in Washington, D.C. (see full list of cities).

•November 4, 2015 • 9 Comments

oopsThe U.S. concerts at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. that Clouds and fans are currently finding on ticketing agencies online are NOT for 비 Rain (a.k.a. Jung JiHoon).

Those concerts, dated March 8 – 9, 2016, are concerts for the U.S. rock and roll band Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles. Some ticketing sites are displaying Bi Rain’s pictures by mistake (how ridiculous!), and fans are leaving reviews about Rain by mistake — they don’t know these are not his concerts.

There are multiple ticketing sites contributing to this problem. I’ll use this one for an example.

Guess what happens when you click the green “Buy tickets” button?

Hi, peeps! No I haven’t forgotten you. I’ve been weathering a crisis for the past week and a half, ugh.😦 A blasted Windows 10 automatic update killed my laptop – – my only compter – –  and it’s out for repairs, and the new desktop computer that I’ve invested in as a result disappeared between company and shipping carrier. So, instead of being back online yesterday the 2nd, I’m hoping to be back sometime Tuesday the 6th (the computer company is rushing me another desktop). Fingers crossed… 

Really cool Rain news has been happening this past week, so I’m feeling quite bent out of shape and deprived, unable to share here with y’all, but it is what it is. *sigh* (Using my phone to check social media, blog comments, and interact with y’all is great, but attempting to complete any real work on it is tiring and awful. I don’t know why people do it, ugh) 

(Fresh Rain for sponsor Ming Zhuang Cosmetics. Sourced as tagged.) 

My intent is to share links with y’all in case some of you haven’t already seen the most recent Rain news out there. And to let you know that my Twitter and the Cloud USA: Let It Rain Facebook page are good places to go for that. 

Go get you some news!

And so, as you can see, the man has been doing charity work, getting ready for an MCM event in London, getting ready for the London Fashion Awards 2016 (he is the first Asian to be invited to Europe for it), having his Ming Zhuang campaign rolled out, and looking all silvery and gorgeous at Incheon Airport. 

Have your V apps on your phones and mobile devices trained on his V Live page or go there by computer later… 


… because he’s in London as we speak (flew in to Heathrow earlier today) and you’ll be able to watch him live on the LFA 2016 Red Carpet and at the MCM grand opening on 12/5 and 12/6 (the V Live livestream video itself should show you when, based on your location. Here in Atlanta, it’s 1 PM Monday and 1:30 PM Tuesday. In this instance, thank Heavens for my phone and V app! *squeeeeeeeee*).

Hope to see y’all full on sometime Tuesday, if the computer gods are willing.^^

Tah for now.

[11 images][1 GIF] Rain check. (And Random Rain Goodness. Past time for some!)

11/22. Rain still reigns in yesterday’s local paper where Elsie lives. A more proper subtitle would be: “may no longer be AS popular in Korea”, because he is still popular to a degree in Korea. I mean, c’mon. Don’t get it too twisted, Mr. or Ms. Writer. Let him walk out in the street and stand there, and see how quickly the stores will empty.  ^@@^ (Images credit: @elsie_see)

I don’t know when Mr. Mysterious took this picture in relation to when he posted it (today), but I do know where it is. He’s walking along the side of the Kit and Ace performance clothing store in the neighborhood of Venice, Los Angeles, California. (Looks like somebody might have been in the mood to buy some new duds!) Kit and Ace Venice uses the side of their building for an artists’ wall, and this palm tree mural by Noah Abrams of Noah Abrams Studios was just put up this past July 2016 (and someone’s already tagged it, wouldn’t you know… *sigh*). ^@@^

(Image credit: rain_oppa @ IG / 29rain @ Twitter / RAIN-JIHOON @ Weibo, 11/19. On Weibo, Rain added the simple caption, “Hello…” Of course, this could have been around the end of October, during his private trip to the States. Or… ? ^@@^)

[series][3 clips] From Stephe’s desk: Rain 비 TV performances that made me wanna shout! (#12)

•November 18, 2016 • 15 Comments


What: MBC Rain [5th Album Rainism] Comeback Special

Where: MBC Dream Center in Ilsan

When: October 17, 2008

How many times it made me want to shout: 23

1) OMG, look at that stage. Definitely worthy of a comeback of this magnitude! (Remember, this was not only Rain’s return to the South Korean music scene after being away for several years filming Speed Racer and Ninja Assassin, it was also his first time being completely on his own, without JYP. The song writing, the choreography, the producing, etc. were all decisions made by an independent Rain. And, it would either make or break his career. Scary times… but exciting!)

2) Nice illusion! Rain should always be wet! Haha~ And out of the tank he comes!

3) Rainism! Oh, the visuals! *squeeeeeeeeee*

4) WHAT was that sound he made at :39? *swoon*

[Re-post][guest post][5 fan arts] BiAlamode: South Korea’s Rain — America’s Asian Persuasion, Part 1.

South Korea’s Rain — America’s Asian Persuasion, Part 1.

— by D. LaShore (BiAlamode @ CloudUSA). Original post 10/7/2015.

Uh-oh, what is this? Bi is back on the market? A free agent again? Riding solo? Well, I knew it was only a matter of time. Yep, sure did, only a matter of time. Hey, I’m talking about his recent departure from Cube Entertainment. Seriously, like what did you think I was talking about?😉 Hmm, so, looks like Bi is going to split the different sides of his career between an established agency and a one-man agency dedicated to his entertainment needs and his needs only. Could it really be?

I’ve got only one thing to say, if this will indeed be the case… How fly is that?!

Sooo, me thinking the way I think sometimes… I thought, well, if Bi is going to be partially representing himself, then there really will be no limit as to where he can offer his talented wares. He can showcase his talented self to a myriad of entertainment entities, more specifically entertainment entities in the U.S. (Good mercy, just got a chill.)

I think Clouds know by now that Dee is going to put her two cents into the mix. We all know Rain is about his music and stage performances, but where he will get the most exposure within the American mainstream the fastest and for a prolonged period of time? Yes, I will say it – the small screen. Oh, that’s not to say that he shouldn’t be on the Big Screen too, because he should.

But Rain needs to be on American televisions weekly and, of course, I’ve got ideas. You know I do.

How can Rain’s MENtholatum pics continue getting better and better even after 6 years? Dude!❤

In their Weibo post, Mentholatum China is offering the high-definition version of this mobile phone wallpaper to their customers who use the proper keywords and do it with a quickness. I can only imagine how many downloads they’ve been clocking!🙂 ^@@^
