Not long ago, Rain gushed about how his daughter has double eyelids, much to the delight of his fans. When Rain met the press for his latest album launch on December 1, the new father candidly talked about how his baby with wife Kim Tae Hee is his source of inspiration for the coming album. He disclosed that he did a thorough preparation for his new EP album, which highlights five tracks. Two of those have already been released.

The singer-actor revealed how he talked with Hongdae songwriters, who are forerunners of Indie music in South Korea, in order to achieve a distinct sound that is unlikely of him.

He added that he intends to challenge himself in his new venture instead of playing safe since he has a stable career. He acknowledged that he owes his fans for paving a way for him to have a happy second life chapter so he is doing his best to up his game.

Rain divulged that the title track of his album “Gang” is a mix of hip-hop and electronic music from producing team Magic Mansion. Another standout track is a break-up song titled “Goodbye”, which is written by Jo Hyun Ah of Urban Zakapa.

Rain admitted how he has reached the stage of his life where he does not dwell on worries anymore.  After marrying early this year and having a beautiful baby, fans couldn’t agree more.

Mentoring the participants of idol reboot show The Unit, Rain indeed has come a long way from debuting in 2002.  He has extended his projects to acting and endorsements, and was cited twice as one of “100 Most Influential People” by the Time Magazine.

Famous for his classic Korean dramas and films such as Full House, A Love To Kill and Ninja Assassin, Rain is expected to star in his second Chinese drama after Diamond Lover with f(x)’s Victoria for Endless August in 2018.
