Rain Invited to ABC TV Headquarters in New York

2006/05/04 Source

Singer Rain has been invited to the headquarters of ABC TV in New York.

Rain was recently selected by the U.S. weekly magazine TIME as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" (Time 100). He will leave Seoul on the morning of May 7 to attend a "Time 100" party to be held at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York on May 8 at 8:30 p.m., local time. The trip has garnered attention, as Rain is expected to meet a senior executive of ABC TV, one of the major American TV networks, at the company's headquarters in New York.

According to a person close to Rain, he will visit the ABC TV headquarters in New York on May 8 at noon before heading for the "Time 100" red carpet ceremony. He is visiting ABC at the company's invitation. During his visit, he is expected to have a meeting with a senior executive at ABC to discuss the possibility of his appearing on the TV network.

An official from his agency, JYP Entertainment, has recently said, "Some time ago, we were contacted by an official from ABC TV. The official asked about Rain, his plans, and the possibility of his appearing on ABC TV".

Under these circumstances, if his meeting with the ABC TV executive results in his appearance on the TV's nationwide network, it will have a positive effect on enhancing his recognition in the United States. Rain officially declared his plan to advance into the American market in February, when he gave a solo concert at the Madison Square Garden in New York, a first for an Asian singer.

Following his attendance at the "Time 100" party, Rain will return home on the morning of May 10. Upon arriving, he will head for Busan to act in director Park Chan-wook's new film "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK", the first film he has ever acted in. Since late March, Rain has been staying in Busan to shoot the film.
