Lee Na Young Teases Rain Before He Leaves
Though pretty much every red-blooded male in Korea (and abroad) would give their souls for an autograph from Lee Na Young, all lucky Rain has to do is call her up. Or to be exact, since it′s not likely that he′d want her autograph, we suppose the lucky people are the ones who befriend Rain in the army...
On October 11, Mnet aired an exclusive broadcast of Rain’s last concert before his enlistment. The concert was held on October 9, at Youngdong Blvd, with an audience of 20,000. Mnet also aired a series of video messages from top stars such as IU, Girls’ Generation, Brown Eyed Girls, Kim Tae Woo, Go So Young, Kim Jae Dong and of course, Lee Na Young.
Lee Na Young, who starred with Rain in the KBS2 drama The Fugitive Plan B, sassily remarked, “If you ever need my autograph in the army, just tell me anytime. Go Rain!”
Rain’s last concert took over seven of Youngdong Blvd’s lanes for about two hours, and many fans from Korea, Japan, China and other Asian regions gathered to see the man perform.
Rain danced powerfully to his hit songs Rainism, Ways to Avoid the Sun and I’m Coming to fervent cheers from his fans.
The concert was followed by a surprise event which brought fellow Flight: Close to the Sun actors such as Kim Sung Su, Lee Ha Na and Cho Sung Ha onstage to join Rain in his last moment. Rain then read a letter he wrote himself, saying that he wrote the letter because he couldn’t sleep.
Rain entered the army to serve as an active officer on October 11 at Gyeonggi-do Uijeongbu. After five weeks of basic military training, he will be moved to his permanent post, where he will serve for two years.
