Where I live has a small town feel. the population here is slightly over 150,000 and less than 1% is consider Asian-America. So when my mom informed me that Korean singer Rain was meant in the local Bradenton Herald. OH! My fan girlness went through the roof.
[Rain talks and movies, but not military duty
In nine years, Rain has gone from an unknown backup dancer to one of Asia’s hottest stars. The South Korean actor-singer also has tow Hollywood movies to his credit.
But his thriving entertainment career must be put on hold later this year when he reports for two years of mandatory military duty. It’s a topic the 28-year-old performer doesn’t want to discuss. At a news conference-delayed- 2 1/2 hours-before his concert at the Venetian Macao casino-hotel late Saturday,organizers banned questions that were not preapproved by Rain’s managers.Instead of discussing how the break would affect his entertainment career, Rain spoke about Macau and fan reaction around Asia.
Rain’s fans are confident their idol emerge from two-year break unscathed. -Herald wire reports
Even though rain was only mention briefly in the Hollywood section. I was still excited to see rain written as an entertainer not tied to the Hallyu wave trend. All I can think maybe more K-pop performers will come my way.. Where I live Bradenton, Florida lucky enough to get a 5 stars circus.
