You know that he’s about to make it rain. Veteran K-pop star RAIN is the first of three artists to be announced as part of the final lineup of WATERBOMB Singapore 2024. He will join the likes of Sandara Park, Jessi, Kwon Eun-bi, VIVIZ and more on 24 Aug (Sat).

This news comes after the 41-year-old soloist recently performed at the Hong Kong edition of WATERBOMB, which took place two weeks ago in early June. Then, he sang Rainism (2017), It’s Raining (2019) and more live.

The singer’s last trip to Singapore was in April last year. Then, he performed alongside K-pop global icon PSY for a three-day celebration of Marquee’s fourth anniversary.

Born Jung Ji-hoon, he debuted in May 2002 with his full-length album, N001 (2002). Alternately titled Bad Boy, he has since released other popular tracks. Some of his most famous numbers include Rainism (2017), Gang (2017),  It’s Raining (2019) and more.

Known for his sleek moves and powerful stage presence, RAIN is no doubt a symbol of K-pop. He later went on to put Asian music in the spotlight by entering Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People In The World twice, in 2006 and 2011.

Aside from singing, Rain is also active in various fields from acting to variety shows. He secured his first role in the romance drama Sang Doo! Let’s Go To School (2003). He subsequently gained recognition with his role as Lee Young-jae in the hit series Full House (2004) alongside established actress Song Hye-kyo.
