Rain Appointed Honorary Ambassador of Military
Rain has been appointed this year′s military ambassador.
The singer, who currently serves as a PR agent for the Defense Media Agency (DEMA), attended the ceremony held at the Military Manpower Administration (MMA) on April 10 to receive his appointment plaque from the director of the MMA.
Director Kim asked Rain, as the newly-appointed ambassador, to "let the youth know that they should be proud and honored to be serving their military duties."
The ambassador role was previously taken up by Lee Dong Gun and Seo Ji Seok. "I will probably play a small role, but I′ll work hard to let people know about the changed conscription administration and have those who served their duties be more looked up to and honored in society," said Rain.
Rain began his promotions as the ambassador at the ceremony with a speech for the draftees who were there for their physical examinations and talked about his own experiences in the military.
Rain will be promoting the military by modeling for MMA and attending the military cultural festival during his year of service.
The singer enlisted in October 2011 and was transferred to DEMA mid-March.
