Rain, Korean Hot Men In the Rise
Rain's Australia concert was highly appraised by local media "Rain comes, he did much better than Beyonce"! International Star RAIN successfully held his concert in Sydney, Australia.
Although there were some screw-ups such as sudden change of location, etc, Rain still deeply impressed his fans and local professionals with his excellent dance and stage performance in his Sydney concert started at 7.20pm on Apr 14.
This concert took place in Acer Arena within Sydney Olympic Park, which is also the biggest performance stage in Australia and only world class super stars are able to step on it, says Beyonce.
The entrance of concert hall was jammed up by Rain's fans. They were wearing customised uniform with the word 'RAIN' or his icon. Yuli (19) said, "Since I knew him 5 years ago, I am already his fan. Well, this concert is quite sudden actually, there're still many people who are not able to come even they are aware of it..." She hoped that the organiser can plan the schedule properly next time.
It was said that the scale, equipment & setup, performance level were highly appraised by local professionals. The passionate response from the audience also proved that this concert was a great success~
Performance manager Jade admitted that Rain is the first Asian singer who held his concert in Acer Arena. Indeed, initially they were shocked when knowing that an Asian singer wanted to hold his concert in such a large scale stage. However, the most advanced equipment and strong technologies showed by Korean team during concert preparation surprised them more! He commented that Rain's world tour is definitely high quality no matter where he goes.
Another manager Don Elfor said, "Rain did come... and WOW... What a show it was!" From the viewpoint of performance planning, he agreed that this is the most advanced performance held in Acer Arena. In the meantime, the scale of overall performance, as well as Rain's cultural values and professionality impressed them very much. Undoubtedly the fans are demanding, but Rain's performance satisfied them, and even performed better than what they expected!
A local crew Andre Smith said that such large scale concert is quite rare in Australia. Rain's concert is about two times bigger than Beyonce's concert and in fact it was a spectacular stage! On that day, the locals were shocked by the screams of audience.
One of the performers, Joven knew about Rain through this concert. It was his first time watching Rain's performance but he can't feel there's any difference compared to USA pop stars. Thus he could understand why the audience were so mad about him.
Rain will rest in Sydney on Apr and leaves in the morning of Apr 16.

Rain, Jung Ji-hoon in real life with nickname puppy, was born on 25th of June 1982 in South Korea. He finished post modern music in Kyung Hee University and his hobbies include watching movies, music, collecting shoes and clothes. His favorite sports include swimming and basketball. He is into R&B, hip-hop, and funk music and considers Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and Usher as his idols.
He has taken over asian countries by storm, being known for his style in fashion, music, and acting. He is also known as the dancing machine, an amateur magician, and a shrimp eyed actor to many of his fans. However in one event, PETA or otherwise known as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Asia Pacific, castigated the actor for wearing a fur.
He has been featured as the cover boy model in the December 2007 issue of Cosmo Men, wearing only a denim with his white Calvin Klein underwear.
Recently, he has been rumored to represent oneself with Hollywood’s top producers and directors. The media people think that it was kind of arrogant and stupid to negotiate with well known persona without the help of interpreters and his manager.
In an interview, he commented about the issue of discrimination as the major cause of his downfall in the industry. However a lot would say that the reason behind is due to his failure to entertain the people with his words. That he must learn to be more responsible with his actions and learn from the past mistakes.
Despite detractors, he remained strong and still on his way to take over the world.
