{*Edited to Add 7/7: Seoul Beats writer Fannie has gone back and updated her article with corrected and more detailed information. Huge thanks to her! And big thanks to the fan who gave her the tip. ^@@^}

Although it sports four or five errors, writer Fannie does a pretty good job on this well put together compilation and catch-up piece on Rain. Even we Clouds got a mention. 🙂

At the end, she asks: “Thoughts, readers? Are you as excited as I am for Rain’s impending return to the K-pop scene?” So y’all should mosey on over and answer her! This is your chance to give Rain some love in a decent article thread and show Seoul Beats readers how you feel. ^@@^

Rain (real name: Jung Ji-hoon; he also goes by stage name 비 (Bi) — the Korean word for “rain”) is an R&B/pop artist who first started out in JYP Entertainment as a trainee in 2000, impressing JYP with his persistence and his talent, despite having initially been rejected several times due to his looks.

He debuted in 2002 with his first album, Bad Guy, [Stephe’s Note: Rain’s debut album was entitled n001, not Bad Guy. That was the song.] promoting the title track “Bad Guy” off the album, as well as “Handshake.” In 2008, he also performed a tango-version of “Bad Guy” with actress Kim Sun-ah….
