U.S. Band Rain Thwart's Korean Star's American Tour

2007/06/08 | Permalink | Source

The Korean singer Rain's concerts in the U.S. as part of his world tour have been postponed due to controversy over his stage name. His Korean name "Bi" means "Rain" in English, but the singer faces legal action filed by U.S. recording firm Rain Corporation with the District Court-District of Nevada in February. The company, which works with an American band also called Rain, demanded the entertainer drop the English name in the U.S.

Star M Entertainment, the organizer of the singer's world tour, said it did its utmost to reach agreement with the U.S. company, but the concert schedule had to be changed since the court will make a ruling on June 14, when the Korean singer was scheduled to perform in Hawaii, the first leg of his U.S. concerts. A Star M Entertainment spokesman said the singer will stage concerts in the U.S. after August, because he will be shooting the movie "Speed Racer" from July. The singer had scheduled concerts in Hawaii, Atlanta, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles from June 15 to 30.
