 Rain Celebrates 18th Debut Anniversary With Look Back At Old Videos And Photos

As of April 24th, 2020, Rain is celebrating his 18th anniversary since debut!

The legendary K-pop singer took to Instagram to thank his fans for their support for the past 18 years. Along with two videos, he posted a sweet message in both English and Korean as he now enters his 19th year of activities.

Thanks to all my fans who have supported me throughout the years, today marks 19 years since I first released my debut album. I still vividly remember leaving the small practice room to perform for the first time on April 24th 2002. On this special day, I want to share a hidden gem I found of me right before this performance. A big thanks to my cloud family who have been with me since day one. I love you all!

The videos Rain shared show him backstage as he is preparing for his first-ever performance. The second video shows him backstage as he waits to go onstage during filming of “Inkigayo.” In addition to the videos, Rain also posted a series of photos showing a timeline of his 19 years in the industry.

Rain first signed to JYP Entertainment in 2000 where he became a backup dancer while also training to become a K-pop singer himself. At the age of 16, he then debuted as a member of the short-lived boy group Fanclub. After two albums which failed to be a success, Rain then debuted in April 2002 as a soloist, and his career immediately took off with his debut album Bad Guy. He then released one hit after another, becoming a commercial and critical success both in Korea and abroad. He went on to become one of the first K-pop artists with successful overseas activities in the USA, even being named by TIME magazine as the number one person on their list of “100 Most Influential People Who Shape Our World” in 2006.

In 2003, Rain also made his acting debut and soon became another commercial and critical success for his acting chops as well. In addition to starring in many Korean dramas and movies, he also made his Hollywood debut in 2008 with “Speed Racer” before starring in the cult classic “Ninja Assassin” in 2009.

In 2013, Rain married is long-time girlfriend and fellow actress Kim Tae Hee. The couple recently welcomed their second child.

Congratulations to Rain on his long and successful career! We hope to see him active for many more years to come.
