Rain’s The Cloud (Fansite) in South Korea: HOW TO JOIN INSTRUCTIONS… IN ENGLISH.

[ETA 9/24/12:  This post has been edited to include registration instructions for The Cloud’s new fansite created by Rainy Entertainment.  :-}]

The original post and all of its comments are HERE, for anyone who needs to read back on the discussion.  Do feel free to continue the thread on this special page, however.  Thank you. ^@@^)

°

[*ETA 10/30:   Clouds, The Cloud (Rain’s official Korean fansite) has posted a message about their 8th-year membership drive and they are asking for feedback.  Please go over there and give them some super Cloud USA comments, okay?  Thanks so much, Terri :-}]

[ *ETA 10/24: For translation of the buttons on the same line as your name, please look in this thread for RoseHoong’s comments from earlier today, October 24.  Thanks for the additional information, Rose!  — ^@@^ ]

[ *ETA 10/21:  Again, here are highlights of The Cloud Fansite from NY Cloud cuckoo.

–> A Message Support Board for Rain (here is the place to send Rain message)
–> English Talk (basically is English speaking fans section. Mostly, some English translated notice will be posted here, so check it constantly)
–> 구름 가득한 방 (this section is Cloud Notice section, unfortunately, it can only accessed by green [blue] Clouds. Fan club tickets application etc. will be announced here. After new Cloud membership re-opened, you can visit there if you become official Cloud)  — Stephe ^@@^ ]

Lovely Clouds,

As many of you know, Rain’s official fan club is called “The Cloud” and is located in Seoul, Korea.  In the past, some of Rain’s top supporters in Asia (and elsewhere) asked Cloud USA to help them drum up more overseas support for The Cloud’s  official fansite, which is also called “The Cloud.”  Our contacts asked us to register for The Cloud’s fansite and to talk a LOT more on their discussion boards there, to show Rain and The Cloud how much Rain’s global fans really do love and support him.

The good news is you do NOT have to be an official member of The Cloud to participate on The Cloud’s fansite.  All you have to do is register, just like you did on Cloud USA’s forum, for example.

Because many of us global fans don’t speak Korea, many English-speaking fans had trouble in the past with registering on The Cloud’s fansite.  (Many thanks to Rose H. for creating the original registration instructions for the original fansite.)  However, since Rainy Entertainment has updated the site, fans seem to be having an easier time of it.

Still, just in case you are having some difficulty, below are some new instructions we wrote for The Cloud’s new site.  (If you find any errors in these instructions, please e-mail your corrections to letitrain@cloudusa.org.  Thanks.)

How to register for The Cloud’s new fansite at http://rain-cloud.co.kr.

  1. Go to http://rain-cloud.co.kr
  2. Click on the dark, gray button on the top left of the page that says:  JOIN (See Screenshot 1 below).
  3. Two types of membership options will appear on the bottom of the screen.
  4. Click on the bottom right box that reads “Sign up – foreign.”  This is the sign-up link for fans who do not live in South Korea (See screenshot 3 below).
  5. Fill in the membership form with your personal details (see screenshots 4 & 5 below).
  6. Your NICKNAME will be the name that will appear on “The Cloud” fansite once you become a member. That is the name everyone will know you by.  Please note that your NICKNAME is NOT your Log-on ID.
  7. Your Log-on ID is the number you will need to use every time you Log In to the site.  Please note you must use all numbers for this ID.  You may not use letters, spaces, or symbols.
  8. Remember to click on the “Confirm” button to make sure that the ID and Nickname you are trying to use are available.  If the ID and Nickname you are trying to use aren’t available, try different ones.  If the ID and Nickname are available, please make sure you click the OK button in the pop-up box that appears, otherwise you may get stuck in the process.
  9. Once you click the box indicating that you’ve read the Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy and click “Agree,” you will then be registered for “The Cloud” fansite and will be allowed to post comments and messages to Rain.  (Yay!)
  10. Always remember that when you log in you will need to use your ID and Password, and then the site will open up to a page with your nickname at the top.

There are several great places to post messages on “The Cloud” fansite.

On the side-bar on the left, you will see a section called “World Cloud.” Click on that link.  You will find a link at the top of the page that opens up called “World Talk.”  Click on that link and you will find the “English Talk” board.  The English Talk board is a board that has been set up especially for English speakers.  We encourage you to fill this board with tons of messages.

You can also post to “Rain News.”  The link for that thread appears at the top left of the page, in the section called “Notice.”  Please feel free to respond to all messages there, as appropriate.

Please note that even if you are a registered member of “The Cloud’s” fansite (which is FREE to everyone), until you sign up as an official member of Rain’s official fan club, “The Cloud,” (through an official membership drive and which is NOT FREE), not all of the fansite’s areas will be open to you.

Unfortunately, the 8th Cloud membership drive for Rain’s official fan club, “The Cloud” has already passed.  We do not expect another membership drive to take place until Rain has completed his military service.  Cloud USA will let you know when the next membership drive begins, so that everyone who wants to become an “official” Cloud will be able to become one.

In the meantime, U.S./English-speaking Clouds, let’s all show Rain lots of love by posting messages and comments on “The Cloud’s” fansite.

  1. Oh my, this is the answer 😍. Thank you for sharing all this useful information. I had been so frustated since Rain’s The Cloud officially fan site is in Korean. So I will try to do as you mentioned above. Did you know whether the 10th drive will be opened soon?
    Thank you so much, Cloud Usa has been very much helping for Non Korean speaking fans.

    • Hi there, tink. 🙂 Nice to meet you.

      If you registered to use Rain’s official fan site (The Korean Cloud in South Korea), then you’ve done the right thing, for now. You’ll be able to read his news there on various bulletin boards, leave him messages of support, comment on posts and basically “talk” to other fans. (the little cloud by your name will be gray) To join up with his official fan club there, though, you’ll have to wait until The Korean Cloud re-opens membership again for fans to apply, which might not be until he gets out of the military (not sure, may be a little sooner than that).

      In the meantime, enjoy being registered as his fan on the site and have fun with everybody. Rain sanctioned that site himself, so being a part of it is pretty cool. 🙂

    • Hi, Alexandra. Nice to meet you. 🙂

      Yes, now that you are signed up there, you should be able to write and post and read Rain news, and see his photos and leave comments whenever you want to, for as long as you want to. And you can remain that way if you wish. It isn’t necessary to sign up as official to use those non-private parts of The Cloud site. You are okay.

  17. Hello!
    I discovered a few days ago Bi Rain in competition on the Internet at http://ent.jkn.co.kr/star/2011award.html and I see that a lot of vote for Bi Rain on and I was curious to meet him on this singer. Since then I’m not tired of listening to music.
    Bi Rain charmed me with his music, dance, smile, voice, the physical aspect but mostly with his big heart full of love for people.
    I want the fans to show their love by giving him two awards at this contest.
    Blessed Christmas and a good new year!

      • Hi, Renn.

        Yellow and Orange Clouds are “cloudmasters” (or the official head/representative/supporter of their particular country). They help keep the clouds in their country up to speed about things that come down from the Korean cloudmaster and the Korean Cloud executive board. As far as I know, there is a cloudmaster for Japan (yellow) and for China (orange) and they have officially sanctioned (sponsored by J.Tune and Rain) sites like the Korean fan club does.

        Green Clouds are officially-joined members of the 7th Cloud (2009-2011). Cloud membership usually only lasts for one year, but this past membership lasted for two years due to unforseen circumstances.

        Blue Clouds are officially-joined members of the new 8th Cloud (2011-?) and former Green Clouds who have renewed their memberships.

        Gray Clouds are fans who haven’t officially joined The Cloud but have registered to use the official fan site. (They have limited access.)

        I hope this helps! ^^

    • Hi Renn,

      Joining the official fan club in Korea means that you are an “official Cloud” and are counted in Rain’s “official” numbers. Which means a lot to Rain. You do also get whatever perks the club offers. Those are listed in the announcement.

      I’m not sure what “two” clubs you are talking about though. Please clarify.

  27. Hi,

    I joined Cloud 8 on the 3rd of March with the help of Heidi and an English version of the instructins. I started receiving new posts on the 4th; however, I stopped receiving them on the 15th for some reason.

    I used my ID (which is 4 numbers) but forgot my password. I forgot to write it down 😦 I went to retrieve it, but it wants my resident number. I looked up what it was and I don’t have one because I do not live in Korea. I am a Polish American, born and raised and found my happiness is watching RAIN, his career advancements and his devoted fans, of which I am one.

    Could someone please help me start to receive the emails again and obtain a new password?

    Best always,

    • Hi, Kristen.

      I’m so sorry. I’m a little confused. Did you lose your password for The Cloud fan site? Did someone ever answer your question? Just in case you don’t know this process, here’s how to find your password or ID if you’ve forgotten it. (If you are talking about The Cloud’s fansite.)

      Go to The Cloud’s homepage. To the right of the Log-In button at the top there are two more buttons. Click the 2nd button (the center one.

      That will take you to another page. Look to the left. On the sidebar there is a Helpdesk Global button. Underneath it, it says “Find your ID and Password.” Click on the “Find your ID and Password link. Fill out the appropriate form, and they will send you either your ID or Password by e-mail.

      I don’t see where it asks for an ID number though. So, maybe that’s not what you are talking about. So, maybe you’d better clarify. I’ve been a member of the fan site for a long time, and I have never received e-mails from them at all. Even when post news.
