Singer Rain, who has recently emerged as a new Asian star following his success in Japan, is now poised to establish his presence in China and Hong Kong, where he will tour starting from July. He will sell the license to his third album, entitled "It's Raining", to the Chinese record distribution company Sungmun Culture Corporation, and hold a showcase and press conference in Beijing, China on July 1. Rain had previously sold the license to his second album, "How to Avoid the Sun", in China as well.

On July 3, the singer will fly to Hong Kong to stage a showcase of his third album as well as a press conference. The license to the album "It's Raining" will be sold via the Hong Kong company Universal Record. Rain's popularity in Hong Kong has soared since the KBS series "Full House", starring the artist, aired in that country.

"Aside from the showcase of his album, Rain will also participate in various promotion events including the Hallyu Culture Festival. He is also very likely to go to Japan straight from Hong Kong to record his second full-length album targeting the Japanese audience due for release on July 11. He plans to rehearse his new songs that were written by Japanese songwriters", said JYP Entertainment, Rain's agency.

Rain will soon release in Korea and Japan his new photo album and DVD that were filmed in May in a desert near Los Angeles, USA, and in Cuba along with writer Cho Sun-hee. Orders for 50,000 copies have already been received.
