I’ve just written an inquiry at the rain-jihoon.com Rain World community site (both English board and Q&A) asking the Cloud Master to let us know if there will be seat allocations for fans, especially foreign fans, at Rain’s 5th album showcase on Oct 9. It’s only 12 days to go ’til the showcase and until now, they still haven’t given us any straight answers if there will be tickets and how many will be available for the fans.
I think they are very much aware that there are foreign fans who are interested to go. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be posting the announcements in Chinese, Japanese and English. And I also think they know that not everyone can just book a flight a la Amazing Race to go to Korea. Or maybe they don’t since they have lots of money to burn on last-minute booking fees, but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. Well, we’re not like them. We need time to prepare. We need answers and we need them now. I am personally sick and tired of reading nothing but “please be patient” from them because time is running out and my patience is already GONE.
So I told them, if we are not going to be given tickets, then tell us RIGHT NOW so that we won’t have to expect anything. I personally will respect them more if they are more upfront with us instead of leaving us hanging in the air and then scrambling for it at the last minute.
I’m probably the only bitcheroo in that site amongst the “I love Rain, I support him no matter what blah blah blah” messages there. I don’t care. I do support Rain; it’s his staff that needs a lot of . And since nobody is stepping up, someone has to do it.
