There are several things to note while reading this personal letter from Rain to his Clouds at his 24th birthday fan meet and the things he said after reading the letter:

1. As always, he clearly separates Jung JiHoon and RAIN the entertainer.

2. He wants us to consider him a human being, not a Deity.

3. He hopes he can continue to make us happy as years go by, even through the times we’re all moms and grandmothers.

This is why I am a Cloud. ^@@^

Rain’s letter and talking at his 24th Birthday Party, 6/25/2005

RAIN’s letter at his 24th Birthday party – June 25, 2005

I hope you all have been fine.  I do not know how to express the nervous feelings I have every time I write a letter. Perhaps you wouldn’t understand.  It surely has been a long time to see you.

I missed you and thought about you. I wonder if you did the same? Perhaps you felt the same, I believe.
First of all, I want to express my gratitude to you. I am so happy with the fact that so many people have come to celebrate my birthday. Not only from Korea but also from overseas, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Taiwan… I thank you all for coming over to the party.

Since I’ve been loved so much by all of you, I contemplate what I can do to return your love. And I still do…
As you love and cherish singer RAIN, I will work hard to show you how I also cherish and love you. My expression of gratitude will be shown through an improved self, thus, please don’t forget that showing improved self is a token of my love to you.

Although I’ve written down words like “I love you, I like you, Thank you, I appreciate your support”, I think there sure are important things more than words. Some things never can be expressed by words.
I want you to just watch me, and see and feel how I am doing my best. All right?

Now, it’s RAIN’s 24th birthday party! Are you having a good time?
Yes, that’s good! Wish you a safe trip back home.
I hope this day, the 25th of June is a long memorable day for you. Don’t forget that today is not coming back. Make a future today!
Thank you!

Rain

RAIN’s talk after the fan letter reading

“There’s a saying…

I want to tell you that the work I’m doing now is a kind of job. It might be… how shall I put it… it might be an endowed work. Thus, what I can give you is…

In fact, entertainers are not public officials. Entertainers are people who give you pleasant times. When you feel low or depressed, we can give you hope, I think.

An entertainer can approach you as an ordinary person. In fact, entertainers also use toilets… We also want to be in a romantic relationship, and sometimes can do something wrong.

Um, so I want you to regard me as an ordinary person.
And as the fan letter said, I do think I am a very lucky person.

But, the only thing I can do for you is to work hard to achieve my goal. That is, even some 30 or 40 years later when you become a mother or a grand mother of a family, I want you to remember me when you see rain falling from the sky.  I want to be remembered as, ‘a young man who once had a passion (for his work) that made me happy.’”

    And telling those words in such a young age is worth of respect.

  6. One of my greatest pleasures is watching Rain perform, whether it be acting, singing or dancing, but my great respect and admiration is for Jung JiHoon the man. He has endured so much, overcome so much and accomplished so much, but he is still a humble man with a loving and kind heart. His Mama is smiling on him so proud of the man he has become.
