  1. what joy that have not degraded a rain !


  2. @Terri thanks for the information, not that I thought he had been demoted. I know this might sound stupid but what has been all of Rain’s Rankings? Also, can you tell me what DEMA stand for? I think I have the initials correctly. I have totally forgotten what the initials stand for.


    • Flower,

      You’re welcome. Not all of us did think he had been demoted, but there were a lot of people who have been questioning it because of erroneous media reporting. DEMA stands for Defense Media Agency.

      Technically, Rain has had 4 ranks. All ROK Army soldiers start out as “recruits” with no stripes. Until they finish their basic training and earn some rewards, they stay recruits. The next rank up is a Private, which is the first rank they get. Rain then became a Private Second Class, which is one stripe. Next, he became a Private First Class, which is two stripes. And then he became a Corporal, which is three stripes.

      It’s a little confusing to us here in the U.S., because our ranks are a little different. Comparatively, my nephew, who is in the U.S. Army, is the same rank at Rain. However, my nephew is a Private First Class, because the U.S. Army has more enlisted ranks, which go like this: Recruit, Private (PVT), Private 2nd Class (PV2), Private 1st Class.

      To become a “Corporal” in the U.S. Army takes two more steps up (first to Specialist and THEN to Corporal). Rain’s next rank will be a Sergeant, with 4 stripes, which is the same rank as a “Specialist” in the U.S. Army.

      And I hope that didn’t confuse you even more. LOL.

      • @Terri thank you so much for all the information. You know it is hard for me to keep up with all that is going on with Rain. Truthfully when I do have time in my life and I am looking to find out what is going on with Rain, this site is the first place I come to get my truthful information from. Then I might go some where else if some other site is mentioned or I just stumble upon it and there is info about Rain. So since your site did not mention it before, it did not cross my mind that he could of been demoted. I am happy that he was not demoted. Because come on, once again it is not like he traded military secretes, killed someone, build a bomb, or anything like that. Yes Rain did break the rules but no one is going to conveince me, that there has not been other soldiers who has also done the same thing he did. Come on he is a man and he was trying to spend some time with a women. Its just Rain is not a normal soldier in the eyes of the media and the crazy fans. I be glad when all of this stupid news go away. I feel even though someone is trying to knock him down they have not succeed. You can tell that Rain is still highly respected and liked. I feel that Rain is going to be ok. I cannot wait for him to get out of the military and move on with the next chapter in his life.
