As we understand it, Rain's friends, colleagues, and other movie professionals who were attending the 16th Busan International Film Festival on the 7th gathered for a farewell party for Rain (real name: Jung Ji-hoon, South Korean singer, actor, and entertainer) at Haeundae's snack stall there, in Busan.

Hallyu star Jang Geun-suk, actor Go Soo, actor Jung Suk-won, actress Kim Sun-ah, and Rain's castmates from the movie "Soar into the Sun" were some of the party-goers who enjoyed a good drink and raised their glasses to their comrade, who is temporarily stepping out of the celebrity spotlight to serve his mandatory 22 months in the Republic of Korea military.

Eventually, bodyguards had to form a human shield around the celebrities as throngs of fans from Korea and across Asia were drawn to the festivities at the snack stall, but that didn't spoil the friendly atmosphere in the least as the celebs continued to celebrate Rain and send him off to his duty with great cheer. The crowd was moved by the display of friendship, and responded with remarks about how nice it was to see such strong support for the South Korea entertainer.

In additional news, Rain gave his final concert at the Gangnam Hanryu/K-Wave Festival earlier today, October 9 at 7 pm. The two-hour show, billed as The Last of The Best: K-Pop on Top, was a free street concert that required the closing of at least seven streets off of YeongDong Boulevard, and drew over 20,000 fans and spectators.

Rain will be reporting for his six weeks of basic training this coming Tuesday, October 11, at the Uijeongbu 306 Reserve Troop Station. The star doesn't yet know where he will be serving after his basic training, but that information should be forthcoming from him, so please stay tuned.
