[announcement] In celebration of our 1-year Anniversary today… it’s another Cloud USA giveaway!

[ETA: Members attacked this thread promptly at 8 pm EST and CLOSED IT DOWN by 9:45. My heavens! We didn’t expect that! But don’t worry—this isn’t our first giveaway and it certainly won’t be the last. Our announcement of the winner is coming up ASAP in a separate post. Thanks, all…! ^@@^]

That’s right, lovelies!  WongFu and James Bong Stephe and Terri have been stirring Ye Old Soup Pot again. And this time we’re pulling something really special out of the Cloud USA stash, because it’s a really special day.

Way back in May 2007, Rain flew into Atlanta to announce the June start date of the North American leg of his Rain’s Coming World Tour to the press. One of the concert stops would have been Philips Arena downtown, except that, shortly thereafter, The Corporation That Will Forever Be Despised had the audacity to try to “legally” stop Rain from using his stage name. And by the time things were settled by the courts, it was time for Speed Racer and no time for North America. Sigh. (We won’t go on about that here. We’re sure you can easily see that boulder-sized chip that’s still sitting on our collective shoulder.)

Well, before that hot mess went down, KoreAm Journal, a national magazine that has covered the Korean American experience since 1990, put Rain on the cover of their June 2007 issue and included a major write-up on his Atlanta jaunt. Writer Corina Knoll did a fantastic job indeed, bringing JiHoon to life in the article. Please see below excerpts from that article and a link to the entire piece in the KoreAm Journal back issue section on the magazine’s website:

°

[Article EXCERPTS] “Let It Rain” / KoreAm Journal, June 2007 / Corina Knoll, Correspondent

[article opening] It’s mid-afternoon in the A-T-L and the temperature is nearing 80 degrees, which is the norm for the month of May in this city.

Welcome to Hotlanta, home to the largest consortium of black colleges, a few dozen Waffle Houses and a style that is particular to XXL T-shirts and Baby Phat. Of course, it’s also a place ripe with history, serving as the birthland of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the backdrop of the civil rights movement. Today, the metropolis of urban sprawl also boasts a thriving music industry. Hip-hop stars like OutKast and Ludacris got their start here, putting Southern rap on the map, and the headquarters of LaFace Records, the label that produces Usher, Ciara and Pink, calls the Peach State home.

What Atlanta is not, is a city where you’d imagine the American success of a Korean pop star would begin. And yet it is here where Rain will announce his 2007 North American tour, projected as the vehicle that will put him in an entirely different class of pop stars. Because while he has sold out concerts across Asia and filled up Madison Square Garden and Caesar’s Palace, he’s now attempting a full-blown, unprecedented U.S. crossover.

The tour doesn’t kick-off until June 15, but he is scheduled to arrive later today for a press conference. Atlanta, a mainstay of the Dirty South, feels like a hard sell, but perhaps it is the proper litmus test to determine if Rain can shine in America.

And let us skip forward to the end ….

[article closing] On my way out of Atlanta the next day, I spot Rain standing alone near the Delta ticket counter. No entourage in sight, he is just one in a sea of business travelers and families at the airport at 9 a.m. on a Friday. Wearing cropped khakis, an army fatigue button-down and black flip-flops, he’s listening to an iPod, his head bowed low, covered with a brown beanie.

I re-introduce myself as one of the many reporters who must blend into an unrecognizable mass for him.

He pulls the headphones from his ears and smiles.

“I know who you are,” he responds fluidly in English.

We make small talk. He says Dallas turned out to be very nice, that, no, he didn’t go to the gym this morning and, no, he’s not too tired from the trip. He has one more leg to go — a press conference in New York — until he returns to Korea.

I joke that he should have made it easier on me in the interview by utilizing what today seems to be perfectly functioning English.

His manager appears to whisk him away, but before he leaves, Rain extends his hand. “Nice to meet you.”

I repeat the phrase back in both Korean and English then bow and wave, unsure as to which culture and language is more appropriate.

“Bye Rain … uh, Bi.”

A few minutes later, I see him crammed in the lineup for baggage security, holding onto a brown Louis Vuitton suit bag with his crew around him.

Putting the bag on the moving conveyor belt, he pulls off his hat and fluffs up his hair. Off comes the button-down, the belt, the flip-flops, the shades — until he is standing barefoot in just a T-shirt and shorts. There is no stylizing, no incognito mysteriousness. He seems naked, vulnerable. Standing next to a friend, he rises to his tiptoes, and the two laugh and playfully punch at each other.

It occurs to me that this is a rare glimpse of Jeong Ji-Hoon, and that if all goes according to plan, I may be witness to one of the last times he can traipse through an airport or chat in the middle of a terminal. Because when he returns it’s game time and he’ll be embarking on a seemingly implausible mission that will either make him want to hightail it out of town or reap the awards of a long-awaited dream.

Whether or not America is ready, Rain is about to fall.

°

And so now comes the COOL part.  What oh what are we giving away, pray tell?  The June 2007 issue of KoreAm Journal, above?

Nope. You can probably still backorder that. But we don’t think you can backorder this

The June 2007 KoreAm Special Rain Edition Journal that was released at the same time.

 

The differences in the June magazine cover and the Rain edition are pretty obvious. This one has background graphics, Special Edition, and his printed autograph added on. And it is ALL RAIN—no additional magazine articles and whatnot, only 28 pages of Rain, Corina Knoll’s terrific article, and images to die for from the Asian leg of the tour, all on thick, sturdy, glossy card stock. You can see a representation of a few of those images in the gallery below.

Big hugs and all our gratitude to a lovely friend and unique lady, Heart888, for donating this edition and quite a few other items to our Cloud USA stash. ♥

So, now that you know what’s being given away in celebration of our first anniversary, how in the world do you actually win it? We admit we’ve been somewhat hard on you in the past, but this time it will be relatively simple. Here are The Rules:

PLEASE READ THESE CAREFULLY!

• To be as fair to the timezone issue as we can, this contest will begin at 8 pm this evening, Eastern Standard time.

• This giveaway is only open to Cloud USA community members who either subscribed to the media blog OR joined the forum BETWEEN January 21, 2010 and January 20, 2011. To be eligible, you had to have signed up in either place BEFORE today.

• Our lovely Queen of GIFs, forum moderator Katie/Purplezest has chosen a number between 1 and 75. The member whose media blog comment falls on that number in this post thread will be declared The Giveaway Winner. We’re not going to tell you what that number is, because again, we want to be fair. No waiting around, counting the comments, and then saying something at the last minute, y’all!

NO comments will be counted that are made before the start time above (8 pm this evening).

• This is an open thread, so you can talk about whatever you’d like. (Emphasis on the word “talk.” You’re not limited to how many comments you can make; do have normal conversation amongst yourselves.

However: A bunch of one to three word comments that say “I love Rain” or “Gahh” or “Blehhh”, or the same comment cut-and-pasted all in a row are cop-outs and will only get you disqualified.) 😛

See?  Easy-peasy!

Incidentally, if you already have this book, be nice and let someone else win it, okay?

Thank you all for taking time out of your busy days and spending it with us, and for being so kind to our site. Without you, Cloud USA would be only that—just a site, and not a warm, vibrant community of people who love and support Rain and each other. We will continue to support sister Rain sites here and around the world to the best of our ability. We will do our best to make 2011 even more interesting and fun for you, as Cloud USA evolves.

Everyone synchronize your watches for 8 pm EST, and happy commenting!

With much love—

Stephe ^@@^ and Terri :-}

    • Oh, Kongsao. I’m sorry you’ve been so upset and downcast. We all have those days — I have them, Terri has them, everybody, because we’re all human and life can be an emotionally hard thing to endure. You know? So, you’re not alone.

      What do I think about you? I think you’re special, and sweet, and well-meaning. And a huge Rain fan, like so many of us. And you have made me laugh a lot. I only wish I had more time to spend in the comment threads here with ALL of you, but to run the whole fan site properly these days, and take care of my parents, that’s just not possible. The main things I want YOU to know are:

      1) If you want to leave Cloud USA for personal reasons, it’s okay. No one will be angry at you, because that is your right.
      2) We all have down days. Just take care of yourself, work your way through it, and it will pass.
      3) You are a good fan to Rain, but YOU have to realize that yourself. YOU have to know in your own heart that you do good for him, and that it does matter, whether anyone else says so or not.

    • Oh, Kongsao,

      I’m so sorry to hear you are feeling sad. I hope that you are feeling better by now. BIG HUGS to you.

      Please know that you are NOT “bugging” us. We like you and really do want you to continue to contribute to Cloud USA in whatever way you would like to. But that is up to you. Please don’t think you have to contribute anything. Just do what you WANT to. Be yourself. That is all.

      I do hope that you enjoy Cloud USA and that it makes you smile sometimes, at least. That is the whole point of the site, to share what we know about Rain with all of you and to make you smile.

      Hopefully, we are making you smile here at least a little bit, Kongsao. Because that is our intention. Please don’t be sad. :-{

      Also, FYI, I wish I had more time to comment on all of the lovely posts. But between taking care of my own family, work, Cloud USA site maintenance/activities, etc., I just don’t have a lot of time to do that. Please know that I am here, though, reading all of your comments (and everyone else’s) and enjoying them very much. I may be really quiet over here in my little corner most of the time, but that doesn’t mean I’m not here. I am. I’m watching and reading, and I TOTALLY appreciate everything ALL OF YOU are doing. Including YOU, Kongsao.

      HUGS,

          • Yeah, that shut us up like real quick.

            Little did Katie know Stephe and I chatted later and Stephe was like, you don’t think she’ll really do something like that do ya?

            And I was like, Gosh, we’re talking Katie here, ya know? She’s liable do ANYTHING.

            ROFLMAO.

            I was also so fun searching for photos and shaping up the vid.
            I am so glad I managed to contribute on time. That near miss with the BOX for Rain still in my mind.

    • Ha ha…we got nothing…SERIOUSLY.

      Our Rain is being very QUIET. I wonder what’s up with that? Should we actually believe that he is resting???

      I sure hope so.

      • Rain resting?
        :falls into a dead faint:
        I certainly hope so! That man is crazy with the way he puts so much wear and tear on his body. He needs to relax for a bit before he wears himself right on out or hurts himself. Hmmphh… :glaring in Paris’ general direction:
