Park Jin Young Talks About His First Impression of Rain

Singer Park Jin Young recently talked about his first impression of Rain at his national tour concert, “Bad Party: The Halftime Show” on December 20.

Before introducing “Instead of Saying Goodbye,” which he wrote for Rain, he talked about how he first met the singer through the request of someone to watch Rain’s audition. “I was told he (Rain) had gotten rejected at 16 other auditions, and when he came in through the door, he looked like a starving lion. He looked so exhausted, but I could see a lion in his eyes, just full of his pride and dreams. He was someone who wanted desperately to be a singer, but his pride wouldn’t let him beg and plead.” 

Park Jin Young’s “Bad Party” is his annual brand concert that started in 2007, and this year celebrated his 19th year since his debut.

Park Jin Young will be performing in Seoul until December 22, after which he will hit Daegu, Pusan, and Incheon on December 24, 25, and 31, respectively.
