04.12.11 [TheStar] South Korean Pop Star Rain Was A Strange Choice For A F1 Post-Race Party Treat But He Delievered The Goods
By SETO KIT YAN
South Korean pop star Rain was a strange choice for a F1 post-race party treat, but he delivered the goods.
RAIN! Rain! Rain! Rainism reigned high as K-poppers were an exuberant presence among F1 race enthusiasts at the Petronas Malaysia F1 Grand Prix post-race concert on Sunday night.
Malaysian Clouds (Rain’s fans) had been waiting all evening for South Korean sensation Rain (real name Jung Ji Hoon) to continue the adrenalin-pumping action at the hillside celebration party held at the helipad of the Sepang International Circuit.
The excitement raced as the lights dimmed at 9.15pm and Rain, an international star that’s ever larger than life, made his entrance to a screaming crowd.
*Sixtofive1982 Exclusive!! Swee Wei, one of our Malaysian followers, won a Facebook contest for a “Meet-And-Greet with Rain” prior to the concert in Sepang. This is her special fan account. So happy for you girl, and THANK YOU for sharing this with all of us!!! ^ ^

Super tall, broad shoulders and OOH LA LA, extremely muscular! Those were the things that stuck me the most when I first set my eyes on him during our meet and greet session. It was around 8pm, just before his concert performance at the Helipad area of Sepang International Circuit.
World star Rain has been chosen to be the main model for Mentholatum, an international brand.
It is known that he took time from his busy schedule to film a commercial for the brand.
On this day, Rain showed that he was preparing thoroughly in advance at the shooting, which amazed all the staffs. And he was seen trying to maintain optimal physical condition, doing sit-ups and push-ups in the studio.
In addition, it was said the atmosphere was strained throughout the shooting, but he tried to make the atmosphere around him lighter, joking while working.
As it seemed that they didn’t think of him as a world star because he was humble in his manner throughout the work, the people at the shooting were full of praise for him..
Meanwhile, Rain has been busy filming his next movie ‘Red Muffler’ about a deadly strategy of the Air Force pilots of the Republic of Korea, and about their lives and love, where he appears with actress ‘Shin Se Kyung’, actor ‘Yu Joon Sahng’, ‘Kim Sung Soo’, ‘Jung Seok Won’ and so on.
