On the 25th of January, British fans finally had the chance to meet a Korean celebrity after a special event by MCM invited Rain for an exclusive appearance. Ohkpop (Me and my sis) were there at the event and the details of this little meet-up will be posted under the cut.

The event was scheduled at 2 o’clock, but due to Rain’s schedule he arrived at around half past two off from a white limousine. Some fans were reported to have queued at around noon just to get ahead of the line. Despite the rain and long queue, Rain initially took the chance to walk around and say hi to everyone before he got unto the main door.

A few minutes later they asked fans who are buying from the store to head inside and pick the products they wanted to be signed. Initially, the chance for a signature and photo were only exclusively for those who purchased the bags – but a few hours before the event, MCM announced that they will cater to any fan who will buy a MCM product.

Sad to say, we were not able to get our stuff signed because of the limited time they have plus the queue for purchase and to Rain itself, but they made up for it by having Rain do a short session outside the shop. My sister had the little moment of asking for a hug, but security apologize that they need to get going. Doing a little bit of fanservice despite the strict security, Rain bade the fans farewell and went back to the parked limousine.

Fans who were early got the chance to have a photo and sign with him, and will be emailed by the official photographer. Sad to say, cameras were strictly not allowed inside the room where he was.

Everyone was happy of this event, and hopefully more Korean stars would follow in this type of publicity. Short and simple, but worth it. I came to talk with some fellow fans outside, and we hoped that this would be the start of putting EUROPE on every Korean act that is having a WORLD TOUR.

Have a good vacation RAIN and feel free to come back anytime! x

    Gelie, I still can’t believe we didn’t see each other. If you look on this pic: https://iloveohkpop.wordpress.com/2011/01/26/ohkpop-exclusive-rain-in-mcm-event-london/attachment/0/

    My friend is covering my face -_____- the one with the pigtails. I’m behind her. Not the one with the grey jeans that’s my other friend.

    Thank you for publishing a very good-looking photograph of RAIN for yesterday.

    Could you lend the photograph?
    Of course, ^ that pastes link.

    It asked you because the photograph that the fan had taken was not able to be used without permission.

    My best regards.
