**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…

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:

…come late April and early May, get ready, Japan!^^ And this is the moment when I remind the man that his North American fans have been waiting to meet him on their turf too, for a heck of a lot longer than folks in Asia who see him All. The. Time. Okay? Okay. ^@@^

…that going to the Grammys in Los Angeles last night was one of the things he’s been doing for the past week, since he and wifey arrived at LAX on the 6th. Why is he unexpectedly here in the States again? R.A.I.N. Company confirms that it’s a personal trip, which means not only R&R, but also business that we can’t know about yet. Thanks for sharing, dude! 🙂 ^@@^

There were SO many entries for DIA TV’s “The Best Present” GCDF 2017, I could never see them all!

Congratulations to entrants Sandy & Mandy for taking the championship belt! I can see why their attention to tiny details (like breaths in the right place, etc.) got them chosen. Rain was impressed with several contestants, in fact, and gives his commentary on them and on the winners in DIA TV’s English-subbed video below.

Can you imagine Rain enthralled and saying, “Actually, this is what a good dance team looks like…” while watching your video? OMG. 🙂 ^@@^

Dailymotion clip credit: DIATV GCDF 2017. There is also a re-upload on YouTube HERE, if you have trouble playing the DM one.

These twins are cute as all get-out on their YouTube channel, and this isn’t their first dance cover.^^ Video credit: Sandy Mandy.

Rain signed with Anchor Beer in the summer of 2011 and the campaign, conceptualized and produced by Alchemy Partnership and Emerald City, rolled out across China and Asia from that time and into October (when he went in the military) and on through December. Gosh, the visuals were striking! Just an amazing campaign all around. ^@@^

Back in the day. ^@@^

Expectant mom Byul (Star) posted this pic yesterday of Rain, herself, and friends at her hubby Haha’s restaurant Loco Quan 401. It was a congratulatory get-together in celebration of Rain’s marriage. Cute!

These two have known each other for quite a long time. Byul sang the ever popular “I Think I” on the Full House OST in 2004. The MV was only the second glimpse I’d ever had of Rain, and on my TV no less. Had no idea he was the same guy who’d just caught my attention in his “Na” MV, my first glimpse of him! He and “Young Jae” were complete opposites, haha. 😀

Byul also did a gorgeous duet with Rain called “How Much I Love You” on her debut album Byul Vol. 1: December 32, in 2002. It is one of my favorite Rain songs ever. Here, they’re singing it live at a concert in Daegu in 2003. So special! ^@@^

[series][2 clips] From Stephe’s desk: Rain 비 TV performances that made me wanna shout! (#13)

What: 2014 Auto Music Festival in Chengdu (中国成都汽车音乐节)

Where: Chengdu, China

When: June 15, 2014

How many times it made me want to shout: 25


1) OMG, he’s wearing one of my favorite suits for It’s Raining! We all know that Rain in a dark suit is an amazing visual, but this light-colored number is simply divine. The subtle shine of it reminds me of champagne…

2) What is that, a sound glitch? Grrr, can’t they simply get his mics right? Don’t sweat it, Rain. Just carry on!

3) Ooooh. Did he pour himself into those pants or WHAT?

4) Voice is on point. Thumbs up.
