‘Tis the Season, all!

And because of that, I’m taking a quick break from my Rain Career Music special series (4 installments so far) to celebrate that which we all love โ€” Christmas Rain Spam. We all love us some Rain overload at Christmas and New Year’s, don’t we?

January will start off with the next Rain album installment (#5). For now, though…

Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year to you all. โค๏ธ

[Cloud USA][info] Send your holiday cards & E-mail messages to go in our gift box to Rain! ๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿพ

•December 1, 2019 • 1 Comment

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

In a BOX!

We’re sending a box of Christmas gifts to Rain this year. Do you know what would make that even more special? If the box was also filled with Christmas and New Year’s greeting cards from Rain’s Clouds, from North America and around the world.

Things have been quite trying this year for some, and tight and lean for us all. If you can’t afford a gift for Rain, you’re not alone. We collected some nice things for him over the summer and fall, for fans who want to gift him but for whatever reason, can’t. So, send your Christmas greetings! Send your New Year’s greetings, so we can put them in the box.

We will be paying the postage to R.A.I.N. Company. However, if anyone would like to help us out with that, we’re happy to take donations. Just let us know and we’ll tell you how.

Send your cards (UNSEALED) and/or postcards to:

[5 images][10 vids] From Stephe’s desk: Ninja Assassin (the reason Cloud USA was born) turns 10! ๐ŸŽ‚

Last Monday, 11/25, Ninja Assassin celebrated its 10th anniversary! The film that made Rain the FIRST Korean national to land the lead role in a Hollywood movie premiered in 2009 and caused quite a stir in many circles and demographics, oh yes.

Seems like just yesterday, here in Metro Atlanta, my friend and fellow martial arts aficionado Darrell said to me in an autumn 2008 E-mail, “Hey. Did you hear about this new movie being filmed, Ninja Assassin? It’s starring some K-Pop singer named Rain. What do you think? Should we be excited?” This was how I found out about the upcoming movie and Rain’s role in it.

Rain and his movie billboard at Times Square in late 2009. So proud! ^@@^

That means it was all him. Incredible.

And PLEASE, don’t get it twisted. Dancers do have expiration dates, but there is none on vocal cords. There will always be Rain music. This man will never stop singing and recording. Trust!

Read on to also find out about his plans and goals for the future. ๐Ÿ™‚


Yonhap News โ€”

(Yonhap Interview) New film ‘Uhm Bok-dong’ pushes Rain to his physical limit

SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Yonhap) — Having entered the K-pop scene as a teenager, Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, has shown no lack of stamina so far while staging physically challenging pop performances on the K-pop scene.

Even given Jung’s unusually well-built physique, filming “Uhm Bok-dong,” a new drama film where he plays the main role, was a consuming physical challenge like never before.

[10 images][LOL] Cloud USA blocked! Tumblr could not handle the Effect that is Rain.

Dazed, confused, and trying to understand Tumblr’s problem. ^@@^

Imagine โ€” you open up your Tumblr one day to see what folks have posted and to check your feed. Without warning, weird red and blue banners are in your face, screeching at you, announcing you’ve been FLAGGED for ADULT CONTENT.

This happened when I went on our Cloud USA Tumblr some months ago! Oh, it’s true!
