Rain Plans for Two Album Releases This Year

On February 19, the agency of famous Korean singer and actor Rain (real name Jeong Ji-hoon, 28), J. Tune Entertainment, announced that he would release a special album this coming April. According to J. Tune Entertainment, Rain will release a regular album around in October after recording a mini album consisting of four or five songs in April. This special album will be recorded one year and six months after releasing his 5th album “Rainism” in 2008. Due to his first Hollywood movie “Ninja Assassin,” Rain was so busy that he could not make a new album last year.

A J. Tune official said in a phone interview with Yonhap New, “We have already recorded some songs, but we are still in the process of collecting better songs from songwriters. We will decide on the title song of the album after completing all of the songs for the album.”

It is an exceptional case for
Rain to release an album in April. Rain has usually released his albums in October after releasing his debut album in May, 2002. The official said, “This upcoming mini album, which will be released in April, would be meaningful for Rain because he debuted in April, 2002.” The official added, “ Rain had completed his Asia tour up to January and he is planning an encore performance in a foreign country. He is also examining scripts to possibly appear in a TV drama in the second half of the year."
