Rain is Samsung Anycall's man

Rain (Jung Ji-hoon) has been appointed Samsung Anycall's Beijing Olympic mascot image ambassador.

The Chinese ladies admire him while he says a couple of words.


What are the Energizer Bunny’s responsibilities as image ambassador? Rain will sing the Samsung Anycall Olympic theme song and appear in the music video (MV) as well.


Samsung has also introduced the “Rain Phone”. Although there has been countless celebrities promoting Samsung Anycall phones in the past, this is the first time Samsung has named a phone after an artist. What an honour for Bi.

Rain Phone: First time ever - Samsung Anycall
names a phone after an artist.

Samsung hopes to increase sales of this phone, especially during the Olympic season.
Samsung’s philosophy – “never stop dreaming, never give up, keep pursuing your dreams ‘till they come true” can be reflected in Rain’s own pursuit of his dreams. This is why he has been chosen to represent the mega company at one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events.

The “Rain Phone” (Samsung music handphone SGH-F258) is available in China and Hong Kong. Samsung plans to release other products in this series later.


The Rain Phone's main selling point -
is that it's catered for the music enthusiast.
Do you want one?


By the way, what’s happening to Samsung Anycall’s Anyband? Won’t they be part of the Olympics promotion too?

Clammy said...

It's a cultural thing, a sign of being polite. Why is it that you think microphone is spelled with a "ke" and you can't spell or tell the difference between to and two?
