{*Edited to Add: We have an English summary of Rain’s interview in a later post HERE. Thanks.}

It was indeed a pleasure to have Rain with my coffee this morning. Friends FM radio DJ radiojumam had Rain as a guest on his show bright and early Atlanta time (7 am), though across the International Dateline it was Monday evening at 8 pm in Seoul.

The military station played several Park HyoShin songs first, which is always welcome. PHS’s buttery voice will indeed warm the cockles of your heart—the man can sing. And then the DJ welcomed listeners to the show and warmed us up even more with Michael Jackson’s (feat. Akon) “Hold My Hand.” Wow. K-Pop girl group STELLAR was up next, fresh from being honored as ambassadors of DEMA’s Consolatory Train program for the troops. Such adorable young women! Though I’m not fluent in Korean, their lovely personalities came straight over the airwaves.

And then, half an hour into the show, the eagle I was waiting for landed. Our soldier boy invaded the premises. There was no mistaking the familiar timbre of JiHoon’s relaxed, happy voice, and Kim JaeWook and Im JuHwan were with him.

It was an hour and a half filled with laughter, excited chatter, and clear camaraderie amongst all four men as Rain immersed himself in the interview. At one point, one of the guys threw a quick bit of Rain’s song “I Do” into the mix. Hilarious. 🙂 When radiojumam used Rain’s song “Love Story” to end the show, I applauded. What a way to sign off.

This was a great two-hour way to start my day.

When a translation comes available, we’ll bring that to you here, dear fans. In the meantime, this post is Strictly for the Audio. Enjoy!

  1. When I watched the video of his performance in march I seemed to be the only one who noticed his weight gain. I was concerned because everyone seemed to be ok with it, but I thought he looked a little dazed and lethargic. I was glad to hear him agree that he needed to lose some! Here: Rain: When I performed last time (March 26th), my clothes fit so tightly that I was about to pop right out of them even though the clothes originally fit me just right. Boy, was I embarrassed! So I’m trying to refrain from eating larger-than-usual portions. Way to go Rain you look delicious now, and you are right, just like you did last fall. Keep up the good work!


    • Ladylaz,

      Thank you for your comment.

      IMNY, Rain is not or has never been overweight. Not even in his worst times. The only time I’ve seen Rain look “plump” way back when he had first debuted. And that was probably because he was so glad to get food that he was eating a little too much. It must have been heaven to actually know where his next meal was coming from, after living without regular meals for so long. But even then, he was just pleasantly padded. Not really fat at all. In fact, I thought he was sort of cute that way.

      Honestly, everyone’s normal weight fluctuates a few pounds up and down all the time. And the camera adds about 20 pounds to you also. So, I really do wish this “obsession” his fans have about his weight going up or down would disappear. Seriously. It annoys the hell out of me. Can’t the guy just be for a change?


      Terri :-}

      P.S. Please know that I’m not annoyed particularly with your comment. I’ve seen a multitude of other comments about his weight lately and they have been driving me crazy. So.


  2. It was so much fun listening this morning… (4am Vegas time oy) and all of them laughing was hilarious. What a good time 🙂 thank you for the links – I will be playing it again many times 😉
