The Korean pop star Rain performed a solo concert called “2014 Rain Effect Show In Guangszhou” on Saturday in which many of his top hits were performed including “It’s Raining“.
We weren’t there at the concert, but we would imagine the show began by igniting the expectations of an audience ready to wield their glowsticks. An announcer boomed into a microphone, “Are you ready, people? Are you ready for Rain?” After the audience signaled its compliance, Rain would finally appear from behind a dark shroud, showering his fans with love—meaning, of course, his abs.
Fans expressed their enthusiasm for Rain after the show, noting that his Putonghua had markedly improved. It was apparently much better than when Rain appeared on a Chinese variety show when he spoke none.
But what will Guangzhou do after this? It’s been three years since Rain was last here, and now with nothing scheduled for the foreseeable future, Guangzhou will face a veritable drought.
We love Rain as much as any screaming teenage K-pop idol worshiper (hello, Ninja Assassin!), but we have to say that we’ve had enough rain for now, please come back another day.
