Ooh, I Wish It Would Rain Down On Me

Pictured below is Korean superpopstar Rain, not performing at the Staples center to a screaming crowd of thousands this past weekend:

Today’s forecast: Mostly Sunny

According to the LA Times, Rain’s much anticipated performance was cancelled just an hour and a half before the show was to begin, disappointing hordes of fans–many who had flown from across the globe. Obviously a huge number of Angelinos were deeply disappointed, including two girls named Jen and Diana that you may know pretty well:

“No Rain tonight? Why, WHY? WHY??” – Jen and Diana (holding back the tears)
…so what was the deal? While some guessed low ticket sales, the LA Times reported that Rain was quick to point the finger at the event’s promoters:

The missed concert — for which 77% of available tickets were sold, according to Ticketmaster — could push back his efforts to establish his pop stardom in America by as much as two years.

“The local promoter didn’t set up everything,” Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-Hoon, said through an interpreter Sunday. “When I came to the venue, the LED screen couldn’t be set up. I have rain falling in the concert — that couldn’t work. The stage wasn’t set up, there were no lights, no sound. I wanted to do a great show. But yesterday, I couldn’t get on stage.”

V2B’s Chief Executive Andy Kim, however, tells a very different story, insisting the tour’s original promoter, StarM, pulled the plug on the show after discovering the production would not be able to use Rain’s massive Korean-made LED screen — a central component of his stage show — because it didn’t conform to American electrical standards.

Oh, Rain. Jen and I understand what it’s like to not get what you want, exactly like you want it. And so, we have a few things for you.

This is a gift from me:

And here’s Jen, playing the world’s smallest violin:

Feel better, dude! See you never!!!
