J.Y. Park says he knew Rain would be a superstar the moment he saw him

AKP STAFF

J.Y. Park talked about Rain.

J.Y. Park was the legend featured in the November 30th episode of 'Immortal Song'. After he saw Rain's "How to Avoid the Sun" being performed, MC Shin Dong Yup told him, "I heard that when you saw Rain, you knew he would be a top star." J.Y. Park confirmed and said, "It was scary how certain I was."

He further said, "He had a great height, dance, and voice. He thought he couldn't sing, but his voice was so good. I didn't want him to know how excited I was, so I was strict to him for a while."

Stardom is a funny thing... I was there when Rain/ Bi was a mega star... He almost had the MJ craze in S.Korea and neighbouring countries... I was a "Cloud" too once... It all fades away... Now BTS is quite happening but few years back it was Big Bang/ 2NE1.... Time flies by so fast...Stardom fades and only good music and memories remain so I hope, everyone does well, strives for better but doesn't cling on to stardom but quality work... and yes, not get depressed when it is all gone...

Rain really was a legend. And he's a winner at life too, given his wife and children. He has worked hard for it.


Incidentally, I find it hilarious that while most artists who are promoting go on Immortal Songs 2 as a contestant, JYP goes as a legend whose songs gets performed. Guess that's what happens when you have songwriting and production credits for over 100 hit songs that reached #1 on the charts.
