Singer and actor Rain (정지훈) will wipe away the summer heat with his upcoming Asian tour “Legend of Rain” this August.
Starting in Japan, the concert will tour China and Southeast Asia, where the 27-year-old singer is popular, according to the singer’s agency J.Tune Entertainment.
“(The title) shows his determination to become a legendary icon representing this period,” the agency said through a press release.
The event has been in preparation ever since Rain’s fifth album release, which was a year ago, and the singer is planning to show his multiple talents as an entertainer by participating in the overall concert planning.
“Legend of Rain” is his first tour in two years, and the agency stressed that they are planning a grand event to not only wow Asian fans, but fans around the world as well.
An agency official added that the event was to originally to visit more countries, but was downsized due to the promotion tour for the singer’s upcoming film “Ninja Assassin.” The movie is slated for release on Nov. 25.
Rain is planning to meet fans from regions he has never been to, and was quoted as saying that he hoped to meet as many fans possible through the concert. Organizers added that a Seoul concert will take time to confirm.
Meanwhile, Rain is holding a special fan meeting on July 26 at Kyung Hee University to meet fans prior to the concert. (Korea Times)
