[tutorial][Eng trans] For 10th Cloud applicants: Adding pics & videos in the Cloud Cafe.

•September 20, 2017 • 5 Comments

** NOTE: THESE ARE MY EXPERIENCES ON MY DESKTOP COMPUTER. Figuring this stuff out on my tablet has been harder, so in the interest of time, I’ve been pursuing my 10th Cloud membership on my PC.

Hi, fellow Cloud 10 hopefuls! Good to talk with you again. Sorry that it’s been a little while, but learning to navigate Naver and trying to get my Diligent Cloud requirements done so I can be upgraded to an official 10th Cloud has been quite distracting. And, I must admit… FUN! I cannot tell you how much I’m enjoying the camaraderie on the site. In roughly 3 or 4 days, I reckon I should be a bona fide member of this new term and finally able to read the private message that Rain left in the Cloud Cafe for all 10th Clouds. Some of the earliest applicants have reached 10th status, I see. Congrats to them! So excited! 🙂

A lot of y’all have asked me how to post pics and videos, so here are my experiences with that in the hopes that it helps.

** NOTE: Though I will also be setting up my Tab A to access the Cloud 10 site soon (with the Naver Café app for Android in the Google Play Store), at the moment I’m doing all of this on my desktop computer. Seems like this will be easier for the time being.

** EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to mention… I did all of this from my computer, rather than my Tab A or my phone. But I imagine it will work the same whether you’re desktop or mobile. ^@@^

Firstly, I want to thank those who went the extra mile for Clouds and Rain fans by posting Naver tutorials based on their own experiences, in the hopes that it would help the rest of us. Korean mega-portal Naver is something most of us have run into in the K-Pop/K-drama world, right? But when it comes to navigating the thing, it’s brand new territory in another language, not to mention daunting, frustrating to the point of tearing your hair out, etc.

Dear Rain fans, it’s a good day to be a Cloud!

The 9th Cloud term has lasted longer than any other, as far as I know, and we certainly got our membership money’s worth, as far as I’m concerned. But, as much as I’ve enjoyed it, it is coming to a close and R.A.I.N. Company has opened the recruitment doors for Rain’s official 10th Cloud fan club, if you choose to walk through them.

(FYI: Even though there is an English Talk board, many Internet browsers now have a tool bar option that will translate the page you’re on with the click of a button. You can successfully use that with the fan club site. Try it!)

Read on!

(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! ^@@^)

•February 13, 2017 • 10 Comments

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:

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

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.

[info][8 images] R.A.I.N. Company has elegant new digs. What a location! (8/22)

Don’t let those images you’ve seen of the R.A.I.N. Company building empty and in ruins alarm you, peeps! It’s all good, because Rain and company have pulled up stakes and moved on up to one of the most prestigious and expensive (if not THE most prestigious and expensive) address in Seoul.

And the agency deserves it, IMHO. (I am wondering what’s going to happen on the site where the building used to be, though…?)

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

•August 18, 2017 • 5 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
