Vote for RAIN: 2014 MNet Asian Music Awards (MAMAs)


~Cloud cover by Terri :-}, Managing Editor


There are SO many polling opportunities out there that include Rain, that it’s often difficult to tell which ones are important and which aren’t.  Let me be frank.  Most of them aren’t important.  That is the main reason you don’t see Cloud USA promoting them, because although they are fun, most of these popularity polls truly don’t matter much in the long run, and we know your time is precious.

However, this one is different.  This one IS important.  Why?

263Well, for those of you who don’t know, the MNet Asian Music Awards, held annually by CJ E&M through its music network television channel MNet, is one of the most IMPORTANT events in the South Korean music industry.  It’s a big deal.

Luckily, the MAMAs poll is also of the few critical Korean music industry polls that global fans actually get a chance to influence through their international online poll.  YAY for us!

Rain has won 5 MAMA’s during his music career and has been nominated for 9 of them.  This year’s event is also a special award ceremony to us Clouds, because this is the first time Rain has been nominated for the MAMAs awards since he completed his military service and made his comeback last year.

Lucky for us, Rain did manage to prepare a short performance for the MAMAs show last year.  And what an amazing performance it was—so exciting for those of us who had missed him so terribly while he was away. (In case you missed that stellar performance, you can still watch it on MNet’s Official YouTube Channel. ♥)

The bottom line is if you are going to spend your precious time voting for Rain online somewhere, then please do it here.  Your participation will mean a lot not just to Rain, but also to us here at Cloud USA and beyond.

MAMAs Voting

You will find The MAMAs’ voting poll pages here: (Or click on the MAMAs image right above these instructions.)

You will need to register with MNet or another social media site and be logged in to vote.

Rain has been nominated in 4 categories:

  • #2 – Best Male Artist
  • #8 – Best Dance Performance Solo
  • # 16 – Union Pay Artist of the Year
  • #17 – Union Pay Song of the Year

(Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the arrows to maneuver between categories.)

Voting period:

  • 6:00 PM KST on Monday, 10/27/14 through Midnight KST on Tuesday, 12/02/14

You are allowed to vote ONCE per day per account (I.e., MNet ID/Facebook page/Twitter account).  So, if you have multiple accounts, you should be able to vote multiple times per day.

After you vote, you’ll receive a ROSE for voting.  Please send your ROSE to RAIN.

You must send him a rose so that his star ranking will go up.  The star who collects the most roses each day will get a special promotional banner displayed on his/her MAMA voting page the next day! 

Right now, Rain is at #24 in the star ranking.  So, please vote for RAIN and remember to send him a rose to help push his star ranking even higher.  ♥

  1. I’m awaiting for “The Prince” and “For Love or Money” in my area in the USA!!!!!


  2. Got my fingers and toes crossed for RAIN! The “babe” is so much a “WINNER”!!!!!


  3. So wheres my “I VOTED” sticker, Huh? Just kidding. I love the “SHE” song with the visuals.


  4. Hi Terri, I’m new-ish to the KPop but growing to love it. Could you tell me the difference between the actual awards show (is it called the “ceremony”?, the “Red Carpet Party” and “After Party” – are they all at the same venue this year (2014), if not do you know where the after party will be held? I’ll be in HK during the MAMA but clueless on HK ticketing etc. Thanks!


  5. Hi! So other fans of other groups are saving their roses and picking a day or days to vote all at the same time to push their favorite performer ahead.

    Is there anyway we can all unite like that. To vote and then save our roses to all vote on exactly the same day to hopefully get it up where he has the most votes that day rather than scattered rose giving?

    Just a thought as I keep giving roses and he’s down below and I’m all damn!! lol


  6. Terri and Steph: Rain’s roses dropped from over 7200 when I voted yesterday(15th) place to the 5000’s. What could have caused that? I’ve been wAtching that rose count closely. I opened new accounts to vote for him but the the rules say that’s okay right? He’s in 17th from yesterday but that rose count definitely fell. Thanks Beth….:-)


    • To me that means that just as fast as Clouds vote and get him new roses, these other little fangirls start voting their little butts off for their biases. They are kids with nothing to do except vote all day. It can get hard for working Clouds to vote like that.

      Of course I could be wrong……………………………….

    • Plus the whole having to vote in all 17 categories before your vote applies….SUCKS, especially for somebody like me who doesn’t follow the K-Pop groups like that. I follow Rain….that’s it. I could give a rat’s _ss about the others on the list. If you could vote for your bias only, that would’ve helped speed the process along IMHO.

      *Just Being Honest*


  7. U are the best 💋💖


  8. Vote vote vote Clouds! Rain is farly behind Taeyang-ssi


    • I’m voting every day–twice a day, actually, since they’re letting me use two different accounts.

      Unfortunately, we don’t seem to be making much headway against all of the Taeyang and Exo fangirls. Sigh.

      Actually, they let me vote with Cloud USA’s Twitter account too today, so that’s THREE times I get to vote each day. Yay! I wonder why I couldn’t do that before? Maybe it was something I did wrong.

      Terri :-}


      • Oh yeah. And Taeyang did a great job in 2014 so no surprise here. Instead Rain is in the 2nd place. Quite awesome!
        I didn’t know that we can vote on our twitter account. I’m going to vote on it for sure ^^


  9. He seems to be inching up. He was at 24 and last I checked he was at 18. Hopefully, he’s moved up again. SMILES!

  12. I translated by adding a little more from Elsie’s translation.
    15년전부터 팬이었다는 어느 친구의 손편지 왠지 모르게 감동이..
    갑작스러운 메모지에 진심과 정성이 전해져 오는 느낌… 아이낳고 아줌마되서도 응원하겠다며~~
    고마워 덕분에 보약먹은 느낌이야. 그때까지 버텨볼께ㅠ
    RAIN twitter message trans “A written letter from a fan 15 years ago touches me …
    I feel the warmth and sincerity of the heart due to her sudden note(memo,letter)…
    (the fan said) she will forever love me and support me even after she becomes an ahjuma ~
    thank you for the support and the letter. It just like having stamina food (herbal tonics).
    I will certainly do my best all the time(I will keep(stay, hang)in there until then,”).
    I translate the fan’s letter. I am not sure my translation is correct.
    오빠 사실 나쁜남자 나오기 전에 팬클럽때부터 좋아해서 ㅎㅎ 지금은 24살이 되었지용 ㅎㅎ
    베네통 acc 디자이너로 인턴하고 있는데 이회사 들어온게 오빠를 만나게 해줄라나 보다 생각들었어요.ㅋㅋ
    이상한 말들…사실 오빠는 많이 봤지요 ㅎ 콘서트, 쇼케이스 ㅎㅎ 이번 라송때도 가고 싶었는데 4학년이므로 바빠서 ㅠㅠ
    암튼 오빠 이게 중요한게 아니라 오빠가 한국에서 오랜만에 드라마 나와서 얼마나 좋은지 몰라요 ㅎㅎ
    구름들이 다 기다렸다구요 ㅎㅎ 제작진의 빡빡한 스케줄때문에 많이 힘드실것 같은데 ㅠ
    추운날 감기조심하시면서 촬영 마지막까지 화이팅해요
    늙어서 애낳고 엄마가 되어도 오빠 팬으로 남아있을거예요 (웃는얼굴)
    항상 멋있고, 노력하는 모습 존경스러워요! 어떻게 보면 첫 팬레터인데, 급해서 이런데 끄적였지만 읽어주셔서 감사해요 ㅎㅎ
    한때 꿈이 오빠 스타일리스트
    oppa,in fact,I’ve liked you since Fanclub(He is a member of Fanclub group) before”Bad Guy”(his debut song as Rain) LOL
    Now,I am 24 years old. LOL. I’ve worked as an intern designer for the Benetton acc.
    The reason I work for this company(join the company) is that I thought it’s possible to meet you. LOL
    It sounds strange(strange words)…
    Actually, I’ve seen you a lot. LOL. concert, showcase LOL I wanted to go to the showcase of La song but I couldn’t go there due to being busy as a senior in college.
    It is not important matter. I am so happy that you are(play a role) in the drama(show) in Korea after a long time. LOL
    Clouds have been waiting for you. LOL I think it seems to be hard for you a lot because of a tight schedule of the drama.
    Please, be careful not to catch a cold on cold days and “hwaiting(way to go) until the last day of shooting for the drama(MLG).
    Even though I am going to have a baby and become a mother in old age, I will be a fan of you.^ ^
    I admire that you always look great(cool) and you try so hard(try your best,your effort,your hard work).
    In a way, It is my first fan letter, I wrote a letter on this in a hurry but thank you for reading this letter. LOL
    My dream was once oppa’s stylist (At one time, My dream was oppa’s stylist)


  13. LOVE is not about competition! We all LOVE Rain deeply and to death! We are all in it together! Like one big, happy, lovable, dysfunctional family!


  14. ANSWER: I tried to vote for only the 4 categories Rain was in but they would not register. You have to vote in all 17 categories and click FINISH for your vote to count as registered.


  15. Baby boo got my votes And my rose! But honey, trying to compete with these little fangirls that have access to every mobile device known to man is going to be tough.

    • Isn’t it though? About to go put in my votes. I was able to vote with both my MNet ID and my Facebook, but that’s it. It’s either Twitter or Facebook, but not both, apparently.

      And yeah, you have to vote for all 17 categories and submit your vote, ladies, for it to take.

      Terri :-}


  16. Vote every day Clouds, let’s keep out RainRain moving to the top


    • Hear hear. And if you vote every day, you get 2 roses to give him.

      Although I don’t see how we’re going to even get close to EXO. There are a gazillion EXO members and just as many EXO fansgirls. Sheesh.

      Terri :-}


  17. Do I have to vote for the other stuff too? Can I just vote for him? Sorry to be whiney had a bad day at work, on the freeway coming home from work and at home, somebody stole my honey and honey ain’t cheap!


    • Connie,

      I don’t know if you can only vote for the 4 categories Rain is in. I didn’t try. But I’m a K-Pop fan and so I knew who I wanted to vote for in all of the other categories anyway right away.

      So. Experiment and see…

      Terri :-}


  18. yay!!! i just voted w/3 of my accnt!..
