Rain Enlists in the Military on October 11

Singer/actor Rain has made definite his military service enlistment. On September 23, Rain said he will begin his mandatory military service on October 11. Rain himself made the announcement on his official web site.

Rain thanked his fans for all the support in his 10-year career and apologized for deferring his enlistment until now.

Like expected, he will first receive basic training and will be on active duty afterwards. He will enter a unit in Uijeongbu, but he knows that he may be assigned elsewhere in the course of his duty.

Meanwhile, Rain is on his nationwide “The Best Show” concert tour. It kicked off in mid-August and will wrap this weekend in Seoul. As a means of a send-off, Rain is reportedly set to hold a free concert in Seoul on October 9 for his fans.
