It’s goodbye entertainment world for Rain (Bi, 비) right now as the Korean singer and actor joined the military service last October 11. The military service is mandatory to all Korean male citizens aged between 20-30.
Hundreds of fans, which included those coming from other countries like Japan and Taiwan went to the Army Base in Euijeongbu last October 11 to properly send him off. Before entering the military, Rain had a concert tour entitled “Rain:The Best Show” which was held in six different locations around the country.
Rain, whose real name was Jung Ji Hoon, was best known for his role in the Korean drama Full House with Song Hye Kyo. He was also included in Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People Poll in 2006, 2007 and 2011. The actor also manages his own entertainment company J. Tunes and has starred in two Hollywood movies, Speed Racer, which was shown last 2008 and Ninja Assassin in 2009.
See you soon Rain! Two years is not that long.
