    OMG… a dream come true! Wow, you are so fortunate Girl! I had to reread your posting several times, as it feels like I’m in the moment with you. To have someone that I know (someone in “my” Rain family – Cloud USA Rain sister) giving an account of their meeting Wow! And the details you’ve shared are perfect. You were definitely in the moment and trying to catch everything! Thank you for sharing what Rain smelled like, “Homely” (and Thanks Stephe for the USA added details)…. I guess that’s one of my little fetishes (Oops – Ha, Ha, Ha…) in addition to everything else. Also sharing about his voice, height, hair, lips, hands, skin, crotch (LOL)… Plus the part about, “He really does look fine and huggable, you could just slip your hands under his jacket and snuggle in close to his chest and stay there forever! You could see the muscles through his jacket…” Wow — thanks for that description! …spazzing! Also to hear that Rain was so nice and considerate of his fans, and seem to try and accommodate as many as possible… I already knew Rain (Jung Jihoon) was so SPECIAL, but to have someone I know (my Rain family) confirm it… I believe someone already mentioned loving him more and more now, after hearing your account, and I agree. What I’ve seen all across cyberspace appears to be real… Rain is truly SPECIAL!!!!!!!

    Thank you Katie for sharing your account of this day, and for confirming my thoughts about him. I am so happy for you. I agree that it would be awesome to see Rain in concert, and experience it (and meet) with some of our Cloud USA family! Hopefully that will be the next ‘dream come true’ for some of us, and in 2011, before he goes into the military. 😀

  4. Katie what I wouldn’t have given to be there with you. However your account made me feel like I was living this moment with you. How cool is it that he seems to know about CloudUSA? The way you described him to a tee was awesome. I have to give you kudos for keeping your composure. Thank you Katie for sharing your experience with us.

    Can you imagine how Rain must of felt as he was arriving in his limo and seeing all the fans gathered there just for him? I am sure he felt the love. 🙂

    Thanks again Katie, love ya!

    • I swear, Ceci, I don’t know how she did it! I don’t know how she kept it together like that. She got her fan-on and had a conversation with the man WITHOUT saying something that might have branded her a lunatic LMAO! What?? That is skill.

      But I knew she could. Katie is straight-up CloudUSA material with nerves of steel. (I am still just gobsmacked by her LOL)

  5. @Katie,

    First let me say that when you said you were from Cloud USA and HE SAID…”Aaahh yes!”…….BABY LOVE recognizes “Us”!!!!…(*doing the cabbage patch dance*)(can’t actually do it though).

    I am a woman “of a certain age”, but I would have “PASSED THE HELL OUT” and acted every bit the fangirl….OH I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED your accounting of the day’s events. It TRULY was as if we were there. The staff not talking to him….I don’t know maybe they were instructed not to or maybe they were just star struck as well, all I know is No Way In Hell I’m NOT going to talk to BABY LOVE and he’s right IN FRONT OF ME…..ARE YOU NUTS!!!

    Katie, you timed everything just right. The “stars” were aligned just as they should have been and you met THE MAN Himself!

  6. Katie Omg that has to be one of the best fan accounts I’ve ever read! I felt like I was watching the entire thing from your perspective and all of you senses were mine! (and I mean that in the least creepiest way possible lol)

    And even though I wasn’t there i wont forget it either! I literally had spent my day off watching twitter constantly and spazzing still! Even though I wasn’t there I still felt the excitement because I knew that Rain was going to be (one of?) THE FIRST kpop artsits to hold anything in Europe. And I really hope this continues on because I really believe you all should get some more visits from kpop. I know how it feels when my favorite artists don’t come to my city and it’s not as fun when they don’t. Especially whenbthe closest city is far away. But I digress.

    Still, thanks Katie for your amazing fan account! (p.s. Thanks for tweeting me back too :D)

  7. Dearest Katie!
    If it’s even possible, I love Rain even more now through your fan account! And I also love you more for it, girl! And also so proud of you for holding your composure the way you did. I was wondering wether you had fainted (or pretended to be) and were in his arms *squeals*

    Believe it or not, having a Cloud USA member being that close to Rain, touching him and talking to him makes me feel as if it was me doing it ha ha ha. I was flailing, spazzing along with you the whole while. To be honest, I am still high and have not came down yet.

    As you might have know, I am obsessed with his neck and how good I believe he smells *blush* so thank you so much for answering my unspoken question. *sniffs*

    Thank you so much for your effort in bringing us beautiful pics, vids and very witty and informative account of your experience with Rain. Thanks to the rest of Cloud USA staff for making this happen as well.

    Oh Gosh! He recognises the Cloud USA name! I am stoked!

      Yes, according to Katie, Rain is very humble and cool in person, as well as gracious, gentle, and soft-spoken, and also very strong and fearless, like a lion. He is simply an incredible human being, on top of all his talents. We’re glad you like our fan site. Thanks so much.

      Have a blessed day!

  10. @Katie also, I want to say your videos were perfect. You really captured how he was feeling. I really had not noticed how much he was smiling. He seemed to really be happy and enjoying himself in the crowd. He basically was leaving the bodyguards behind and went off to mingle with the crowd. He seemed like he wanted to stay longer. I feel Rain should definitely do a concert in London or somewhere in the UK. You guys really showed him love and he felt it.

  11. @Katie thank you so much for your very descriptive fan account. I really felt like I was there with you. I felt like I literally was in the basement with you experiencing the pure joy you were living. You answered alot of my questions I had. I too wonder what was on his t-shirt, what he smelt like, and did his lips really look that sexy. I too feel his weight is perfect and you confirmed that. LOL, I was hoping someone would talk about how his crouch looked!!!! Your words “Rain’s crotch in real life is indescribable!!!” is forever stuck in my memory now. I owe you an extra special thank you for your description of that!!! I am so happy you got a chance to meet Rain. I too hope one day I will meet him.

  12. Katie, it was so great to read your account,it’s about time that UK/Europe fans got some love from our man! That is our Rain- charismatic, sensual, passionate, gentle, and loves his fans back! I could only imagine what you must have felt since I was lucky enough to be shaken hands with him at a Vegas concert. He is all he can be and much more, so hard to explain until you experience it yourself.
    Save big starting now bc attending his concerts should be any Cloud’s dream, and let me tell you, it’s WORTH IT!!!!! trust me on this one. 🙂
    I’d love to meet you and all Cloud USA peeps someday at a Rain event, drop me an email if you’d like. Cheers!

  14. Katie you are the luckiest person on earth at this point I must say. And your story just made me so wild with excitement girl! I was hyperventillating in anticipation of what you were about to say in your account. It’s as if I was there beside you as you go along, jumping in my seat with every line you tell about your encounter with Rain. Isn’t it sad though when he left, like you wanted to cry, your chest is heavy and you did not want him to go but you can’t do anything to stop him from leaving. But just to think that you spoke with him and shook his hands twice is something that you treasure forever and add to these, the fact that he signed your items is something that both you and he have shared and so somehow when you see those things he touched you have some connection with him. Don’t you feel that now? I’m overdramatic but hey when it’s Rain we’re talking, I’m too sensitive, I can’t help it. I’ve experienced this myself at the Ninja premiere night. He’s magnetic, overpowering, you’ll just be mesmerized or hypnotized with his persona. Right Katie? Love your account my dear.

  16. What a great accounting of everything that happened! I was “there” with u spazzing that day on twitter and I just felt like I was there with u while reading. I’m so happy for you that u got to meet him finally!!! So awesome… I can’t imagine how u stayed so steady taking the fancams and pics while he was RIGHT THERE …lol. And especially when u were speaking to him. Gah!!! Lolllll @ the banana part!! Now that is a true CloudUSA…hahaaaa. Oh and I love that he seemed to know what CloudUSA was. Very very cool. I’m gonna have to go back and check out the t shirt he was wearing coz I was too busy staring at everything else.

    I just have to say: Remember when he was in the Phillipines and people were saying he’s so standoffish and doesn’t like to b touched by his fans??? Yeahhh well I hope those naysayers are looking at all these vids and fancams and eating crow because he seemed perfectly happy to touch and b touched and surrounded by fans. What a sweetheart he is.

    Thanks Katie!! hopefully one day we can all have fun at one of his concerts. I’d love that. I’ve met some great people here. 🙂

  18. I love that you got to meet him in person. I got to go to the oconcert so if you want anything, go pick from the stash and I will send it to you. That stuff is for the Clouds not for me. Do you want the hat? How do you get a CLoudUSA press pass. I would like one if I get to represent you guys in Korea at his stuff..that I can go to. I may just get a job in Seoul if i can’t renew my contract here. Let me see. What do you guys think?

    • DN,

      Thank you for purchasing a stash to share with us. We greatly appreciate it. :-}

      All, DN’s stash is posted on the forum. Please go over there and see if there’s anything you’d like to purchase from her. It was extremely kind of her to pick up these things for us. DN, I haven’t actually had any time to check out the stash for myself, but I’ll try to do that on my next off day.

      FYI, Cloud USA press passes and identification cards are only provided to official Cloud USA staff members.

    • Hey there.

      When is your contract up, DN? What would interest you in S.Korea if you weren’t teaching? Would you actually LIKE to stay in there or come on back home, if you had your choice? I’ve always wanted to work in Asia in some capacity, preferably in writing or in S.Korean history (like a museum), so I’m fascinated by that!

      Yes, right now press passes are very sparse because we are growing Cloud USA very slowly as far as hired staff go. We’re feeling our way, so to speak. But at some point this year we’re expecting that the need to hire again will come up along the way, and when that happens we’ll definitely be looking back over “Team Cloud” folks who might have the skill set and the drive to fit what it is we need…

      (Jim and Katie might yell for everyone to run far, FAR away with a quickness, though, because we can be really labor-intensive. No one will ever say we’re easy to work for LOL! *pssst, not a word you two* At least I’m admitting it)

      That’s why I personally like having the Team Cloud tag for special tips, images, etc… so members know that they can submit interesting things when the spirit hits them, get full credit if we use it, but not worry that oh, I have to do this all the time now.

      You’re in a really prime location right now. I sure as hell wouldn’t mind being there — gah…! Surrounded by magazines and billboards and ads with Rain, everyday stuff… I would truly have NO life and my equipment would all be DEAD from overuse. ROFL!!!

      • HI,
        4 1/2 months, that is why I am looking now. Awww, but I LOVE the kids I teach now, but I need to start my Korean classes and the other classes I want to take area ALL IN SEOUL! Me being 2 hours away kinda hinders things and drains the wallet. I’d rather stay here, as I learn Korean I can get more information here if youneed iton any KPOP artist you want because I know where they all work and some fangirls show me or tell me what is going on if I walk past and ask.

        Really? I wasn’t even thiking of getting paid for it. I would ask to send me something I need ever so often, that I can’t get here. Like some pure cocoa butter and coconut oil… and deoderant. ONly time I would ask money is if there was a HUGE package I was sending you guys, and I would need help.

        I don’t want to go back home. I refuse to go back to 7.50 an hour. I will work at a hagwon first here or switch countries. I’ll come visit you guys though since Mom is still in GA. I hate driving though. Crap, I need to go back anyway to renew my drivers license. Hey we may be able to meet each other, sinced you lived down the road from me apparently. I wonder how many times we met and didn’t realize we share something in common.

        By the way I am making Rain a Lunar New Year Card, do you guys want to sign it?

    • Jojo,

      LOL. There’s no pleasing all of the fans all the time, that’s for sure. Even Cloud USA can’t keep up with all of the requests WE get. So, we can only imagine how Rain feels.

      We’ve posted everything current that we have about Rain. And as far as I’m concerned no news is GOOD news, because that means he’s RESTING and RELAXING. I would love it if he would take about 6 months off, but I don’t see how that is going to happen with all he appears to have planned for the year. But we will see.

      And no, he doesn’t have his own clothing line any more that we know of. His SixtoFive stores have closed. Something fashion related may be in the works, but we haven’t heard anything through the grapevine about that yet. We will let you know if we hear of anything.

      And I love his auburn hair too. It is quite becoming on him.
