"Singer Rain showed New Yorkers that Asians can dance".

Xinhua News Agency, the state-run news service of China, extensively reported on Feb. 5, "Singer Rain showed New Yorkers that Asians can dance".

Xinhua said, "Singer Rain, a pop star from South Korea, gave his first solo concert at Madison Square Garden Theater in New York, the United States on Feb. 2 and 3, local time. He introduced his own dynamic songs and dances".

The news agency added, "Besides his songs and dances, he showed off the tough chiseled beauty of his body, taking the audience by storm".

Xinhua gave Rain high acclaim by quoting a statement by the vice president of MTV. The MTV executive said, "Rain's music is polished, with the characteristics of Asian traditions but based on the style of American singers such as Michael Jackson. At this moment, a top Asian star named Rain is surely the pride of Asians".

Xinhua also said, "Rain will release an album in the United States in October. We want an Asian singer to succeed in the huge American market. Rain once said, 'I would like that Asian to be me'."
