On February 20, Rain participated in an interview to promote his upcoming film “Uhm Bok Dong.” The film is based on the true story of a Korean cyclist named Uhm Bok Dong, who becomes a hero after winning first place against the Japanese at a bicycle race during the time of Japanese colonial rule in Korea.

During the interview, Rain, who made his debut as a soloist in 2002 with “Bad Guy,” talked about his singing career and mentioned the possibility of setting aside his title as a singer.

Rain said, “My body doesn’t feel the same anymore on stage. That’s why I consistently work out, but a singer who dances is similar to an athlete. Your body needs to be in its prime. Right now, I’m not in my best state. I think I need to eventually let go of my title as a singer who dances.”

Rain continued, “I exercise, day and night. However, I need to draw the line at some point. I don’t know when that will be. It might be two, three, or four years later. If my body allows it, I would like to continue promoting as a singer, but I’m also preparing myself to let go of the singer Rain.”
