Buyer beware.

Check out this press release re: Rain’s 4th album showcase:

10,000 buyers of Rain’s album will see him in his showcase

10,000 people who will buy Rain’s album on October 13, the same day of the concert, will be able to watch him in his “World Tour Premiere” concert in the Seoul Jamsil Olympic stadium.

Those who will reserve and buy his album online and in record stores will be able to get tickets to his concert.

In this event, which will precede his world tour concert in December, approximately 40,000 people are invited to come to his concert. The profits in the event will be used as a charity fund and international relief for handicaps.

This is a good promo to boost sales and everything… but I think the public has the right to know that the seats they will be getting shall be BLEACHER SEATS. Coz remember, you have to be either a millionaire or an insane person (or both) to get flat area seats. Unless you’re a Korean Cloud, of course.

But wait… so how are they going to go about this scheme? Do the first 10,000 buyers get tickets, or is it “buy an album, then pray that it comes with a ticket”? Am I going to fight tooth and nail against 9,999 people just to get one lousy bleacher seat? And what about the seats themselves, are the first come, first served? When are we going to know the answers to all these, on the day itself??? :flaming:

For some odd reason, I am so not looking forward to the showcase. I have a feeling I’ll be bitching non-stop the entire night. Oh please let me be wrong this time.



  1. Let’s see how it goes. The promotion sounds good but executing would be a different monster. StarM better get their act together and pull something off or else, they don’t know what they are up against on that day when everyone is mad.

  2. Hi, be cool :P
    I don’t really know how it is, because I’m from Argentina :P but I think I’m gonna be happy with the new album U_U
    I won’t be able to attend to his concerts :)
    but good luck :)

  3. Hi Belen, and welcome to my blog. :)

    Just to clarify, I never said there’s something wrong with his album. I’m talking about the showcase. With this kind of scheme, there will surely be a lot of confusion come October 13 and since I’m gonna be there, I’m a little apprehensive.

  4. I think this promo will create more complicated situations….on 13 oct….. hope that I am wrong !

  5. With the amount that overseas fans have to pay, I worried can they really attract 10000 overseas fans…..scare to see a lot of empty seats on that day…

  6. sigh, this is getting more convoluted by the day…I guess it’s useful to keep in mind that as fans, we will be there to show Rain our support, love and appreciation for all the hard work he is putting in for his fans… so forget StarM and their crap and totally enjoy yourselves pau, cos that’s what Rain would want, yah?

    This is suppposed to be a charity event right? I think some things are beyond even if he is aware,he may not be able to do wonder he’s looking so stressed … don’t give up on him now biers
