(JiHoon brings the 2006 Rainy Day concert tour to Bangkok, Thailand.)

At the time of this interview and the Rainy Day concert at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, I wasn’t yet a Cloud. I wouldn’t even know that Rain existed for months and months, time lost that I can never get back, arghhh! But I’ve been making up for it since, haha. 😉

Tweaks that I’ve made to the interview are in [brackets]. Also, I’ve added fan cams and a news clip below.

Enjoy! ^@@^

Get to know about the Valentine’s Day of the hottest guy in Asia!

Who’s this month? This time round, especially for our beloved Cawaii! readers, we have got an interview with Rain, the hot Korean guy who is [having] a big concert in Thailand this month. And to celebrate the Valentine’s Day festival which is coming, we’ll ask him what everyone wants to know about his Valentine’s day. Only available here at Cawaii!

Cawaii! : Say something to our readers, please.

Rain : Hello all the readers of Cawaii!

Cawaii! : This will be your first full-scaled concert ever in Thailand. What do you feel about it now? Any pressure or any expectations?

Rain : Not any pressure. ^^ I only feel excited to be meeting fans and it’s the first time that I open a concert there. I’ve been to Thailand a couple of times but never really met up with all of my fans. I hope to have a good response from fans over there. When I had to have surgery at the beginning of last year, I received a lot of best wishes from Thai fans. So I hope this concert will get support and good responses from Thai fans as well.

Cawaii! : What’s your latest works and what’s next ?

Rain : I’ve got a drama, Ijugil Nomui Sarang (A Love To Kill) which has just ended. On Feb 2-3, I will have concerts in New York. And I’ve got a new single “Sad Tango”, which I sing in Japanese. And the last thing is Feb 25, when I will come for “Rainy Day In Bangkok.”

Cawaii! : You work so hard. Then, what do you usually do to regain your freshness. Any drinks or dishes especially?

Rain : To me, sleeping is the best way to regain my freshness. I usually work very hard so when I’ve [got some time], I will sleep as much as possible. And then, a [cool Pepsi in a can] would be good enough to make me fresh again and ready to go on working for my fans.

Cawaii! : Can you describe your music’s progression now? What would you like to add or what would you like to try?

Rain : On each album, I put in [my share of creativity]. For example, I’ve got my share on the melody [beat] of the songs because I have to think about my dance steps along with it. And if I get a chance, I’d like to be a producer too.

Cawaii! : You’ve been to Thailand several times. Anything you especially like?

Rain : Probably food, ’cause Thai food tastes different from others. Especially “Pad Thai”, I still like its taste even now. As for a favorite place, I like Phuket ’cause [the sea is beautiful there]. I went there to film Full House and I’m [still impressed with it] even now. And I also like Thai people, who’re generous and always welcoming me so I feel warm every time I’m there.

Cawaii! : Cawaii! is a magazine about Japanese fashion. What about your fashion? Have you got any favorite fashions?

Rain : Actually, my style of clothing is like [the usual] youngsters out there. I like normal and easy clothes. But I like collecting shoes and clothing too, which I have a lot.

Cawaii! : Don’t forget to travel to Thailand, when you have time. We will always welcome you.

Rain : When I’ve got a chance, I’ll certainly visit there ’cause there are a lot of attractive places there that I’ve never been to yet.

LOVE & VALENTINES

Cawaii! : Could you share your Valentine’s Day experiences with Cawaii! readers?

Rain : My Valentine’s Day is more like kid’s. Something like falling for a pretty girl with red cheeks and giving her a piece of chocolate. Nothing very special. Maybe because I grew up working in this [entertainment] field so I haven’t got much time for that.

Cawaii! : Do you like watching movies? If you do, could you tell us which is your most favorite? And which one do you think is most romantic?

Rain : Actually, I watch every kind of movie. I don’t have a most favorite genre. As for the one I think is most romantic… hmm… I don’t know… I think I’m more romantic than movies. (laughs)

Cawaii! : In your opinion, what makes a girl pretty and what kind of women do you usually fall for?

Rain : A pretty face is not that important to me. But I like to look at women’s eyes. I like women with beautiful eyes and long hair. If she’s good-minded, generous, and a proper lady, I will like her more. And the most important thing, we have to get along well on every issue. Taking good care of me would be great ’cause I work hard all the time.

Cawaii! : If you fall in love with someone, how will you let her know?

Rain : I will walk toward her and whisper in her ear… I love you. (laughs) Just kidding! ^^ I’ll probably use a song to present my love for her.

Cawaii! : If you ever write a song for your lover, what will you name that song?

Rain : “Beloved”… [short but meaningful] because she’s my beloved.

Cawaii! : If you were an ordinary guy, what do you think you would plan for Valentine’s Day?

Rain : Actually, I am an ordinary guy, [with the exception] that I’m known to many people. Yeah, I used to think about what if I’m a normal guy. I’d like to drive my lover to a garden. Must be a beautiful garden, quiet and fresh-aired. And I’d have my lover sitting by my side. Just that [alone is enough] to make us have good times and romantic moments.

Postscript : Rain’s concert entitled “Rainy Day In Bangkok” will be open at Impact Arena, Muang Thongthani on February 25 at 20.00 – 22.00. Tickets are available at Thaiticketmaster, on sale from February 4.

I couldn’t resist adding this quick cam of Rain’s very recognizable back in Bangkok from a different point of view than we’re used to (the sexy Rainy Day dance break in Seoul we’ve all seen from the front). You can thank me later. 😉 ^@@^
