Oh dear, what happened? Well, I don’t feel so bad being Malaysian now – you know, the country where Kpop concerts are cancelled at the last minute? It could be that K stars are fussy pots after all.

What happened?: Why didn’t the show go on?


Korean superstar Rain (real name Jung Ji-hoon) axed his Shanghai concert, which was supposed to be held on Jan 10. His company, J-Tune Entertainment only released an official statement on the matter on Jan 13.

The reason given for the cancellation is that basic preparations are not even ready. Hmm, sounds familiar, huh?

Hasn’t Rain been quoted as saying that he would perform even if there were no stage and only ONE person in the audience? Didn’t he say something like that during the cancellation of his Los Angeles concert?

Anyhoo, the J-Tune representative realises that the cancellation is an inconvenience to the Chinese Cloud but Rain’s Asia Tour is scheduled to go on, thus there will be ample opportunity to meet Rain.

Wrong. Not all fans have the time or money to stalk the superstar and be at all the venues he performs at. Rain, we love you but give us underdogs a break. Sheesh.
