Rain: Manchester United match, Kwon Sang Woo & Asian tour

What has Rain (real name Jung Ji Hoon) been up to? Apparently a lot! Check out the Energizer Bunny's recent and up and coming activities.

tteokbokki (I think...what else can it be? Pumpkin sausage?)

Ambassador for Korean food

On 13 July, Rain was at a Korean Ministry of Food, Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries event in which he was appointed Public Relations ambassador for Korean food. At the appointment, Rain said, "Chinese and Japanese cuisines are more popular abroad compared to Korean cuisine. Thus, I want to publicize the health benefits of Korean food so that people all over the world can enjoy kimchi and tteokbokki."

Rain & Manchester United

We have all been wondering if Rain will actually don a soccer jersey and really get onto the field for a soccer match with the Manchester United team. Answer...oh yes he will! Rain and his team will take on Manchester United at a charity match on 23 July, 2009. According to Rain's management company J. Tune Entertainment, Rain's team will consist of soccer players from "Boy's House". All proceeds from the friendly charity match will be donated to youth services.

Rain & Kwon Sang Woo on same stage

Rain and Kwon Sang Woo - wow, at one point, these two were my top favourite Korean males. Anyway, both Rain and Kwon will be making a guest appearance at Yiruma & Baekga's concert. The concert will be held on 25th July. Rain will appear because he is Baekga's (rapper and photographer) good friend. Kwon on the other hand, is related (via marriage to Son Tae Young) to Yiruma.

Legend of Rainism

Rain has announced that he will be embarking on an Asian tour soon. The tour will take him to Japan, China and Southeast Asia. Legend of Rainism will kick off in Japan on 29 and 30 August, 2009.

On top of all that, let's not forget the fan meeting with the theme "Peace" on 26 July, 2009. Boy, he's a very busy man isn't he?

When u said ur fave two males at one point, does it mean they aren't anymore? :P

Any word yet on which cities will the tour cover?

he better lose some weight before he promotes food as being 'healthy'.

Orchid said...

@Serene, Kwon Sang Woo has lost his sizzle (for me). Rain is still special! Bi was the one who introduced me to Korean pop culture. So he will always be special and top on my list <3

Serene said...

Make that two, Orchid

I won't go so far as to say KSW has lost its sizzle but Rain still tops my list. I've several other faves like Kang Ji-hwan, Eric, LBH etc but Rain is my k-pop idol without a doubt. Too bad he has too many detractors

And not to mention distractions : D
