Rain may be making a comeback on TV after two years


Seoul — Two years have passed since K-pop idol Rain appeared in a TV series and it appears that he may be making a comeback soon.
It has been confirmed by a representative from the Sublime Artist Agency that the 38-year-old singer-actor is in talks to appear in a TV drama, with things looking “favourable”.
The TV show is called Ghost Doctor and is a mix of medical drama with ghosts, according to the Soompi news website on Friday (Feb 5). It is scheduled to air in the second half of this year (2021).
The producing director will be Boo Sung Chul, who is known for hit TV shows The Heirs and Jang Ok Jung, Living By Love.
Kim Eun Hee (Live Up To Your Name) will be writing the script.
When Rain, whose name is Jung Ji Hoon, confirms the job, it will be his first starring role in a TV series since 2019’s Welcome 2 Life. Throughout his career, Rain has acted in several TV series such as Full House in 2004, A Love To Kill in 2005 and My Lovely Girl in 2014.
Ghost Doctor, which is a literal translation, is scheduled to air in the second half of this year.
Rain is a singer-songwriter, actor and music producer.
His musical career includes seven albums (six Korean, one Japanese), 28 singles and numerous concert tours around the world. He achieved breakthrough success with his third Korean album, It’s Raining (2004), which spawned the No 1 single of the same name. The album sold a million copies in Asia, and established Rain as an international star.
Rain made his acting debut in the 2003 drama Sang Doo! Let’s Go To School. His lead role in the pan-Asia hit drama Full House (2004) established his status as a Hallyu star. In 2008, Rain made his Hollywood debut in the film Speed Racer and starred in Ninja Assassin (2009), the latter of which made him the first Korean to win an MTV award.
Rain set up his own company twice, the first being J. Tune Entertainment in 2007, and the second being R.A.I.N. Company in 2015. /TISG

Family fun! Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Holker love giving glimpses into their lives with three kids. The former Dancing With the Stars pro became a mom in 2008 when she welcomed her daughter Weslie with her ex-fiancé. She wed the Ellen DeGeneres Show DJ five years later, and Boss became the little one’s stepdad. The Alabama native called Weslie “easily one of the most observant people” he’s ever met in May 2020 while celebrating her 12th birthday. “Man, she is growing up too fast,” he captioned an Instagram slideshow. “I couldn’t be more proud of the young lady you are becoming. The best big sister. Wonderful artist. Taki enthusiast. Such a good ear for music. Giving heart. Entrepreneurial. Bold yet respectful. Mad style. The world is yours for the storming. Another year of discovery and history.” The actor went on to write, “Just know that myself, mom, Maddox and Zaia always got your back, front, and sides. Today marks the day the world gained an angel that continues to walk with us. I love you, Wes.” He and Holker are also the parents of son Maddox and daughter Zaia, who arrived in 2016 and 2019, respectively. The couple exclusively told Us Weekly in February 2020 that they may not have more kids. “We’re not opposed to it or doing it,” the Minnesota native said at the time. “We just want to make sure that all of our kids always have enough attention to feel fully loved. I would never want a kid to feel like we don’t have enough attention to be at their activities, so that’s the thing that we consider. We’ll see how it goes.” While her husband initially “liked the idea of a big family” and wanted “seven or eight” kids, he told Us, “I witnessed childbirth and that number dropped drastically for me. It was like, ‘Oh, never mind. Actually, however many you want to have.’” Going from a family of four to five led to a major shift in schedules, Holker added at the time. “Our morning routines and our nighttime routines [were established], and then you bring a third child home and it’s all interrupted,” she explained. “You have to change everything. I think we’re in the process, right now, of kind of figuring out how that’s affected our household, but the kids themselves are so sweet.” Keep scrolling to see the So You Think You Can Dance alums’ heartwarming moments with Weslie, Maddox and Zaia over the years, from coordinating Halloween costumes to vacation views.
