K-Pop Star Rain Makes Time Magazine

2005/09/13 Source

Korean singer Rain has made it into the pages of the current affairs magazine Time Asia, a sure first step to international iconic status. The K-pop star has not yet made the cover but at least had a feature devoted all to himself.

The Sept. 19 edition of Time ran a piece titled "A Korean Force of Nature" on Rain's attempts to break into the overseas market.

It cited the string of hits Rain has produced in the three years since his debut and his enormous popularity with female fans in Korea and beyond, which culminated in the MTV Video Music Award in China and sold-out performances in Japan and Hong Kong.

The magazine predicts Rain's fame will increase further when he stars in a new TV drama next month titled "A Love to Kill", which features the boyish singer as a macho kick boxer.

Meanwhile, Rain will perform on Oct. 8-9 at the 10,000-seater Hong Kong Convention Center, and then at the 40,000-capacity Workers' Stadium in Beijing on Oct. 22.
