Superstar Rain Returns

2008/10/10 | 196 views | Permalink | Source

Vol. 5 - RainismWorld star Rain kicked off his singing career in Korea after a 2-year hiatus by appearing late Thursday for the filming of his comeback special. After he released his fourth album in 2006, he has concentrated on his acting career, appearing in the Hollywood blockbuster "Speed Racer" and starring in "Ninja Assassin" slated for release in 2009. But even while shaping his acting career, Rain has steadily worked on his fifth album, the first product since his departure from his mentor and producer Park Jin-young.

Rain's fifth album "Rainism" showcases a wide range of his abilities. During the filming of his comeback special at the MBC Open Hall in Ilsan on the outskirts of Seoul, 1,000 of his fans gathered to see how far Korea's hottest entertainer has evolved over the years. He has written songs and closely participated in all the phases of its production. In addition to his signature power dance, he showed that he had a comic touch in "Fresh Woman" in which he was dressed up in workout clothes and a fuzzy wig. The audience went wild at his funny expressions and comments.

Actress Kim Sun-ah of "My Name is Kim Sam-soon" fame made a surprise visit to the stage during Rain's performance of "Bad Man". Dressed in a skimpy dress, Kim danced a sultry number with Rain to the envy of his fans. Rain's special will be aired in two parts a documentary and a comeback concert. His much anticipated fifth album will go on sale on October 15th.
