Korean singer-actor Rain revealed that he was not worried about losing his popularity after he enlists for National Service in Korea, during an appearance at a publicity event in Shanghai on Tuesday. “Two years will pass by quickly. I believe after two years (of National Service), my fans will continue to support me. “These two years are very important and meaningful to me. I will enjoy these two years in the armed forces and make myself stronger,” said 28-year-old Rain who will have to serve his National Service obligations this year.
Rain received notice to enlist last year but successfully deferred his enlistment to the end of this year. South Korean men are required by law to serve for 21 months in the armed forces and must enlist before they turn 30.
With the clock ticking, it is no wonder the Asian superstar is making the most of it – Rain is currently shooting his last film before enlisting, the war film “Red Scarf” where he plays a fighter pilot, and will embark on a concert tour during gaps in the filming. His concert tour will see him perform in Beijing, Thailand as well as in Singapore on May 22. It had been nine years since he made his showbiz debut and Rain is working harder than ever. However, the “Full House” star hopes to take things slow in his 30s.
