Rain named an honorary ambassador for a campaign organized by the Chinese Communist Party, to prevent excessive desertification, which is leading to rampant yellow dust storms, will attend its welcome ceremony to receive the letter of appointment in Beijing on March 1st.
According to his agent, Rain has already recorded a theme song for preventing desertification and will leave for Beijing on the 1st, and after that, he’ll be back home on the 3rd.
Rain has been regularly invited to each of the country’s national events as not only is he the only Korean celebrity to have performed during the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, his exclusive performance was also given even during the closing ceremony of the 2010 Guangzhou Olympic Games.
An official from his agent expressed, “Rain has accepted the invitation to take up the post of Honorary Ambassador in hope that the work for preventing the country’s desertification would be at least a little more helpful in preventing rampant yellow dust storms which cause much damage to all parts of Korea every year.”
