One of the most famous conductors in the world, Maestro Chung Myung Whun, talked about Rain in a recent interview. The eye-catching factor is that he is not interested in many popular things – “However, I know the singer Rain”.
World famous, Chung Myung Whun does not particularly like interviews, mostly because of his tight schedule. However, we cannot say that he dislikes them, because he does not express any form for unease. The Maestro was interviewed by Reuters, where he was asked in a part of the interview, “Do you happen to know Korea’s trot music and national singer?”
To this, Chung Myung Whun replied,
“I’m computer-illiterate. I don’t even want to use it.
I’m not interested in how the world works.
I read only one English newspaper every day, I like to read the sports and comics.
My day-to-day life is very simple, so my music, family, and my children, have only been a huge part of my life for over 30 years. That’s it.
What is the trot? I don’t know the famous ‘national singer’ at all.
However, I know singer Rain.
His relentless practice and persistence is somewhere to the right of classic music.
Becoming the best of all does not happen just by itself.”
To be praised in such an honorable way surely is yet another achievement for the singer. Meanwhile, Rain was recently named TIME’s most influential person.He also went to New York for the ‘TIME 100 Gala,’ where he met Sting.

Every episode of Sesame Player bring a new surprise and the leads this time were Mir and Cheon Dung.
Even though Mir is not part of the show, once in a while he shares a video or phone call. This time he was walking around his hometown and introduced his family members. HE was so cute asking his mom about the name of the King’s statue, which he revealed used to scare him while he was younger.
On the other hand, Cheon Dung and G.O were walking around when they suddenly found a cute rabbit. As Cehon Dung tried to get closer and `play with it, the cute rabbit kept running away from him, showing that thunder was almost as slow as a turtle. At one moment he almost caught him, but ended up with his hand covered in a ‘gift’ from the rabbit. Since G.O was making fun of him, he decided to follow him around to share the gift.
Check the video and enjoy their sweet cuteness.
