Korean singer, actor and producer Rain says he “now knows how Park Jin-young feels” after watching his own newcomers MBLAQ perform on stage.
After wrapping up his Seoul performance of the Asian tour “Legend of Rainism”, held at Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium on Friday, the singer met with the media to share his thoughts on his first and new boy band.
“I was watching the first performance of MBLAQ from backstage, and I was more nervous than when I was debuting,” the 27-year-old star was quoted as saying. “I thought of Park Jin-young suddenly so I called him.”
The newly turned producer went on to say, “Every decision regarding MBLAQ — from their head to toes — was passed through me. I like about 60-70 percent of what I’ve done but I have a good feeling about them.”
MBLAQ made their debut performance opening at Rain’s concert last week, singing their title song “Oh Yeah”.
The group, who were trained by Rain and his agency J. Tune Entertainment for two years, will make their official debut on October 14. Their teaser video was released today.
The Asian superstar himself is scheduled to promote his second Hollywood film “Ninja Assassin” overseas next month. The actor hinted about “doing a drama in Korea” afterwards.
