Today, JTune Camp has announced that MBLAQ will be having an Asian tour which includes Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan.
In short, a tour of the Philippines’ neighbors.
Hey, remember when Rain did the exact same thing with The Best Tour? Considering how people love to connect Rain with MBLAQ – cannot be helped, of course – that shouldn’t be a surprise anymore, methinks.
Reality check: Sorry, Philippine Kpop fans, but I think our dear country has reverted back from a country where K-pop artists do concerts, to a country where Korean entertainers do CF/photoshoots and secret vacation getaways.
Searching through old entries for links to ‘Rain’s tour of Philippines’ neighbors’ brought my attention to some of the old comments posted here.
If I’m someone who count the success of one’s blog by the amount of “famous” people (enclosed in quotes because I think some of them wouldn’t want to be tagged as such) who visited and posted comments, would my blog be considered successful?
So far, here are some who are confirmed to have at least read my blog (two of them even posted comments):
1. One of Rain’s dancers from the World Tour;
2. A family member of a Kpop artist;
3. A Filipino singer/actress;
4. (In my delusions) A certain World Star.
Not bad, ‘no?
That’s not my aim, though. I just like to write.
Edited to add this, because it’s somewhat related:
The latest Cloud notice is out, and it’s about how The Cloud will Rain’s 10th Anniversary. (For those who are not members of rain-cloud, or do not want to go through the log-in process just to read the notice, the English version is posted at memo-rain.)
I had wanted to post my opinion on this at Rain-Cloud – since I’m a registered Cloud and they are asking the members’ opinion on whether to use the Cloud funds for it – but I saw that the comments were all coming from Koreans. I have no idea of what they’re saying, and I don’t feel like being the sore thumb sticking out on that forum again. But in my opinion, there are much better ways to celebrate Rain’s 10th Anniversary other than paying a considerable amount of money for a newspaper ad. Like, donating it to charity in Rain’s name, for example. A newspaper ad will benefit who, exactly? Certainly not Rain who’s in the military until next year. On the other hand, imagine how many people can be fed with more than 8 million Korean won (about USD7,000)?
Frankly speaking, paying for a newspaper ad should be done by his agency, not the fans.
So what does Rainy Entertainment say about this? Anyone care to Tweet them? I heard they created an account so that they will know what we have to say (this, I gotta see).
Speaking of which, what’s up with naming every enterprise he owns as “Rainy”? Rainy Entertainment, Rainy Building… with a logo divided by a lightning bolt, to boot. No wonder his career is being rained out.
