VERY nicely done, Terri. All kinds of strange little snippets have been floating around about this subject yesterday and today. I was hoping someone would get a bit more detailed, and of course, we can always depend on you, chingu. 🙂

Rain to Become Free Agent Before Military Service Begins

On May 31, a representative from Rain’s camp reported that “Rain’s contract with JYP Entertainment” would end in October. According to all of the news reports floating around, Rain doesn’t appear to have yet made plans to renew his contract with JYPE. On the other hand, he hasn’t said he wouldn’t either. The point may be moot anyway, as he is set to start his military service by the end of 2011.

JYP Entertainment became Rain’s talent management agency by default, way back in February, when J. Tune Entertainment, Rain’s former agency, merged with JYP Entertainment. As no new contract was signed at that time, Rain’s old contract with J. Tune Entertainment remained in force. Thus, when his contract expires at the end of October, Rain will effectively become a free agent.

What that means for Rain no one knows. It may be that he will choose not to sign with anyone else until after his military service is complete. After all, he will be gone for almost two years. Then again, he may decide to go ahead and bite the bullet and sign up with another agency who will keep the irons in the fire and hot for him while he is gone. Either way, we don’t think Rain will have any problems finding work when he returns, do you?

Rain recently wowed a sold-out house at the Semperopera venue in Dresden, Germany, when he performed a joint mini-concert with world renowned prodigy cellist Jan Vogler, during the Dresden Music Festival. He is currently busy shooting the feature film, Flight: Close to the Sun and working on a new album, which was previously set to be released in April, but was postponed for reasons unknown. Rain fans are hopeful that the album will drop before his military service begins. Time will tell.

  1. Rain will have no problem getting back on track after military duty. He needs the rest and he can improve more on his english because I read a lot of nasty comments about his english. I personally think hes doing very well speaking plus he sounds more sexy speaking korean. I guess I better learn korean. Love you always Rain


  2. LOL.

    Okay, some of ya’ll go over to hellokpop and comment on Rain’s post over there. Nobody ever comments on any Rain stuff. We need to blow that place up, by golly.


    Terri :-}


  3. Jihoon is good at what he dose and when he is out of the Army Jihoon will do more and better things.


  4. I think Rain is gonna take his sweet time to choose another company to represent him; after all he went thru with J. Tune he is gonna be careful with all those little printed words in his contract. He is a lot bigger now; with lots of awards and good works in his career so he should choose a big company where he can move around freely from acting to music. Sony maybe? Or maybe, he can keep working with hyungs who know him well and make a company together. With Baby Boo you never know what brilliant idea is gonna pop from his mind. LOL!! But I am sure he is gonna choose whatever is best for his future.

  10. The pleases me to no end…I’m not even guessing to what he’ll do. I just hope he makes the best choice….YEAH BOO!!!!

    (just had to get that out) hahahahahaha


  11. Nope! No problems at all when he gets out from his military duties. Movie and TV companies would jump on acquiring Rain even now, seeing he is a hot item now, and even more so as soon as he’s out. As they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. I can almost feel the excitement of the fans and media as soon as he’s back in circulation. No one in Korea will ever forget Rain. He is an icon already, a household name. Rainism was born 2008, and it’s still fresh in their memory in 2011. I think Rain will reign forever. Two years will come and go, but Rain will remain the same.


  12. I would be jumping at the chance to represent Rain if I was an agent. He’s so talented and can do soooo many things. He will have no troubles after he gets out of military service.
