Singer Rain has once again proved his status as a top-notch Korean artist in front of the world's best artists by receiving the Best Buzz Asia Award at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan 2005, which was held May 29 at the Tokyo Bay NK Hall and was attended by 8,000 people. This music festival, now in its fourth year, is organized annually by MTV Japan to recognize the best and most popular music videos of the year.

Rain was the only Asian performing artist, aside from some Japanese singers, who was invited to perform on the same stage with Mariah Carey, Amuro Namie, Orange Range, Ashanti, Hoobastank and Jamiroquai. Despite a large number of high-profile stars who attended the ceremony, Rain drew significant attention when he appeared on the red carpet wearing a silver suit two hours before the ceremony began. Some 500 of Rain's Japanese fans from his fan club "Cloud Japan" flocked to the red carpet, taking pictures of their favorite artist and shouting out his name.

The audience was enraptured when the singer started dancing onstage to the powerful sound and dynamic beat of his song "It's Raining". Rain took full advantage of the whole stage to show off his diverse dance moves. Those in the audience who saw Rain for the first time said they were amazed by the tall, good-looking singer showing off his impressive dancing skills.

In his acceptance speech Rain, mixing Korean with English and Japanese, said that he was grateful for the award and promised to work harder to become an even better artist. He expressed his appreciation to his Korean fans as well as all his fans who were present in the audience.
