Korean pop star Rain celebrated his 23rd birthday Saturday with a party attended by more than 2,000 passionate fans not just from Korea but from China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

The party, held at an auditorium of Kwangwoon University in Seoul, started off by showing images of Rain as he emerged from the stage following the performance of his song "Nan" from his first album. After his enthusiastic performance cooled down, Rain introduced Yoon Jeong-soo, saying that "he is probably the guy who has helped me the most in my life. He often gives me advice when I am in trouble".

Yoon, a gagman who emceed the event, joked, "He picked one of my hundreds of useful experiences and ideas and manipulated it really well. Especially dancing, I taught him three-level popping. I am very proud of his performance and its success".

Rain, fresh from his recent Asian tour, received a glass bottle filled with different kinds of coins made in 1982, the year he was born. Yoon joked again, "Coins are from different nations, but there is not one Japanese coin, because they don't put dates on their coins".

Also at the event, Rain revealed that an ideal girlfriend for him would be actress Song Hye-kyo, surprising many fans in attendance.

Unlike the most other singers, his fans are not limited to a certain age group; they range from 4-year-olds to old ladies.

"I love Rain so much that I even want to marry him. I never missed a single episode from his drama, "Full House"," said a 48-year-old lady from Hong Kong. "He is a hard working kid, too".

Other fans also praised him for his perseverance and effort.

Not only he is a big star, but Rain can also be a catalyst in promoting cultural exchanges among different Asian nations.

In July, Rain is planning to make his first trip to Hong Kong for three days and hold a press conference about his album "It's Raining". He is also scheduled to meet one of the world's biggest stars, Jackie Chan.

"About 1,000 people are going to the Hong Kong airport to welcome Rain", one of the Hong Kong's Rain fan club members said.
