Insiders say Rain wants to debut a male soloist to follow his footsteps + new 7-member multi-national boy group

According to reports on December 12, singer/actor Rain is preparing to switch gears into producer-mode for the next year. 

Insiders say that Rain is disappointed in the small number of male solo artists currently promoting in the K-Pop scene, and he hopes to debut a new male soloist to follow in his own footsteps. One insider revealed, "Rain is in the stages of discovering and selecting individuals full of passion and talent through numerous domestic and overseas auditions. He has also met with broadcasting station representatives regarding this matter."  

In addition to a new male soloist, Rain is drawing up plans for a new 7-member, multi-national boy group. [UPDATE] Shortly after the reports went up online, Rain Company confirmed, "Both the soloist plans and the boy group plans are in the works. If the plans go fast, they may debut next year; if not, the year after next." 

Do you want to see the next Rain debut in the K-Pop scene?

Honestly I dont know how to feel about this considering that he tried the same thing with MBLAQ and we all know how that ended.

MBLAQ was doing fine honestly. they and Highlight (back then Beast) were "rivals" back then. Beast admitted in one show, i forgot which, but MBLAQ was quite popular and they were on the same level. its just that after Rain left to the military the company went to the shits and did MBLAQ dirty. they weren't able to keep their fame. its sad but their popularity started diminishng and after Thunder and Lee Joon left, there was no saving MBLAQ

I think maybe try the solo artist idea first. Groups have more competition nowadays. And considering how some past groups didn't do too well. But honestly I think producing/managing artists takes full on dedication and support. Not saying he doesn't have it but there's a lot to be proven.

Ummm.. I don't know how I feel about that Rain. When I think of MBLAQ and Madtown you kinda just left them. I believe he has an eye talent but I just don't know.

What about E'Dawn? lol ;)


But really though, I think Rain debuting MBLAQ failed, despite their talent, because he had very little knowledge about being in a group himself. But I think there's promised success in debuting a solo artist to follow his footsteps because he knows so much about it.

Looking back at MBLAQ, Rain surely knows how to spot talent (ironically, better than JYP, who discovered him). And I don't think he's going to do the same mistakes. The soloist though, is what I'm actually excited about. There aren't really many male solos, and the existing ones aren't very popular. (it will change next year if Kang Daniel debuts as a soloist though, and he probably will) Still, I'm excited for his works. I hope he finds a good management and marketing team.

His company couldn't make Mblaq, Madtown and Two X succeed . This isn't a good idea..

Only MBLAQ was his and it actually did really well at the beginning. Until he left for the military. So it's not entirely his fault.

I kinda liked Rain back in the day, Rainism is one my favorite Kpop songs. His "feud" with Colbert was hilarious.
