Chinese Survey Lists Rain as one of South Korea’s “Cultural Icons”


~Cloud cover by Terri :-}, Managing Editor

Hello, Clouds!  Terri here.  Long time no see!  Well, at least here on the blog, anyway.  I see you everywhere else, don’t I?  So, maybe you haven’t missed me all that much, eh?  😛

Still, it is seldom that I get to write on the blog these days.  So, since Stephe is tied up with her grandson today (not literally, I hope, but you never know, right?), I tip-toed on over here to share some news with you that we missed while I was busy working and Stephe was under the weather.

Back on June 11th, The Cloud’s Overseas Fan Coordinator, Heidi, posted the following message on The Cloud’s English Talk board:

“A Chinese organization conducted a random cultural survey of 5 countries, one of which is Korea.  It collected interesting cultural data and compiled the top 20 cultural icons of each country.  Using Year 2000 as a dividing line, the blue icons were those that appeared before Year 2000, the red ones were those that appeared after.

There are 3 celebrity names that appeared on the top 20 Korean cultural icon [list]:  RAIN, Park Ji Song, Kim Yuna

p.s. The survey was done between March to May, 2014.”

My immediate response was, “Well, of COURSE, he’s a cultural icon.”  We’ve known that all along, haven’t we Clouds?

Thank you, Heidi, for this wonderful news.

Terri :-}
