Sombre news has reached me from South Korea that the nation’s biggest pop idol is being called up into the army.
His real name is Jung Ji-Hoon and he is best known as Rain. Someone dubbed him Asia’s Justin Timberlake. That may take some living down.
Why they’ve called him up now I can’t work out. He’s 29, too old to be doing square-bashing. Maybe the draft board sang to him Doncha’ Think It’s Time
In a farewell to his fans, Rain said: ‘Thank you for the ten years of love.’
