05.31.11 [Yonhap News] Seoul District Public Prosecutors’ Office indicts ‘Lee’ and two reporters on charges of spreading false reports about Rain.

South Korean authorities have indicted ‘Lee’ (55), a businessman who works on clothes, ‘Kim’ and ‘Yu’ who work as investigative reporters for internet newspaper ‘S’ and news agency ‘N’, respectively, on charges of spreading false reports about Rain.

In March of last year, ‘Lee’ filed a complaint against Rain claiming that Rain embezzled company funds, and he even released the related information to the two reporters to let the papers soon get hold of the story. So, Rain sued the three for libel over the remarks last October.

Before this, the court ruled Rain not guilty at the end of December last year.

Dresden Music Festival 2011: Asian Pop Meets European Classic

Scream Alert at Sempers

Dresden – A new experience in the solemn Semperoper: not a quiet devotion while expecting a musical experience, but a heated up emotional atmosphere reigned Thursday night, when the artful meeting of the chief director of the music festival Jan Vogler on the cello and the “South Korean King Of Pop” (“TIME Magazine”) Rain, took place. With his appearance a scream alert was scheduled.

It was his first stage performance in Europe – a sensation, not only for his fans. There were visitors from 25 countries, families were travelling from Japan, Korea and China. Teenies in Party-Chic, equipped with colorful light sticks, never-ending clicking cell phone cameras and plushies were part of the scenery. To every teasing dance move, every wink of the idol, hysterical screams were not far away. Some ladies in evening gowns must have felt being out of place.
