On October 11th, singer/actor Rain bid farewell to his fans before leaving to begin his military life.
At 1:10 PM, the star arrived at his training camp in Gyeongido, and fans burst into tears when they realized that this would be their last moment together before his hiatus.
Bowing deeply, Rain greeted, “Hello everyone. I feel like I’m causing a commotion again because of my enlistment. I’m sorry. I’ll do my best to come back in one piece.” Rain then took off his hat and revealed his military-standard buzzcut. He waved goodbye to his fans cheerfully, before heading in for duty.
Rain’s enlistment attracted over 1,200 people to the training camp and television channels like tvN andMnet were present to live broadcast his leave. Aside from fellow actor Hyun Bin, Rain was the only other celebrity whose military departure was relayed live.
The world star gave his all before withdrawing from his celebrity career; he released a digital single, wrapped up his last concert ‘Last of the Best‘, and even participated in the ‘Gangnam Hallyu Festival‘. He will also appear in a special 90-minute pre-recorded episode at 6PM KST today throughMnet TV.
Rain will be undergoing an intensive 5-week training program before carrying out his official duties as a soldier. Let’s wish him the best of luck!
