<Interview> Singer, Rain: World Concert Tour Cancelled
01 July 2007

"AlthoughI've given my all, but things didn't go as I'll like them to, and I couldn't keep my promise of a concert. I'm very sorry."

Rain,whose LA World Concert Tour was cancelled attended the fan-meeting at Wilshire Grand Hotel on 30th June. He apologised several times, andsaid, "This is the last concert in the World Concert Tour. I'm very sadit ended that way."

To the fifty-odd fans who flew in especially from Japan, Rain said, "I had countless practices and was determined to make my fans happy. I didn't expect to reach the concert venue at Staples Centre and encounter a situation where even the stage is incomplete." "Facing a situation where I cannot make any decisions (cannot do anything about), I feel helpless (wronged)."

Below is an interview with Rain:

Q: The LA concert was the only remaining concert left in the US concert tour. What was cancelled too?
A:I was determined to make it a successful concert, but things did not go as I wanted it to be, and the concert was cancelled due to security reasons. When I arrived at the concert hall, the stage was notconstructed at all. Although I did all I can, I couldn't keep my promise to the fans. I am extremely apologetic.

Q: After a succession of cancellations, do you have any plans to reschedule?
A:Due to this ridiculous conclusion to the final concert of my worldtour, my heart is really aching. After successfully completing the Asia tour, I have put in countless effort and determination to make the US tour a perfect end to the World Concert Tour. All I hoped for was to make my fans happy, but things turned out this way in the end. I'll like to thank my Asian fans for making the Asia tour a success, and to my US fans who have been anticipating my concert, I am so very sorry. Iwill work towards meeting my fans on a better stage in the near future. I will definitely do my concerts with good people.

Q: Was there no way to stop that chain of problems that had happened?
A:For what had happened, I'll like to apologize once again. I feel wronged I wasn't able to make any decision (do anything) about this. At the end of the day, I've learned that everything requires me to be evenmore hard working. I will put in even more effort to put on a better performance.

Q: What's your schedule like going forward?
A:I'll be flying to Berlin tomorrow to begin filming of the movie "Speed Racer". In many months to come, I may be unable to give any news to myfans. I will return after the filming concludes.

Below is an interview with Star M Lee In-Gwang:

Q: You didn't anticipate a scenario where the concert will be cancelled?
A:Yesterday (29th), at around 11pm, we realised the severity of thesituation. V2B Global, which has been emphasizing that there are noproblem, did not pay the production people in time. the equipments did not reach the concert site at all. Further more, the specifications at Staples Centre did not meet requirements. V2B Global came to us oncewith the cash and guaranteed to do their best for the concert. We had to make good our promise to let them handle the concert, but in the end, we had to cancel the concert due to insufficient time.

Q: The reason behind all the US concerts being cancelled?
A:The local production and organising companies all made grand promises of being able to handle the concerts, but in the end, they scr3wed up.In the case of the LA concert, due to delayed payment, there was even an incident when the lighting crew walked away. In order to keep ourpromise to fans, we paid the transport logistics, the air tickets of relevant personnel and even food expenses. We have tried our best, butthings simply did not happen according to our will. We are in deepdiscussion about the directly handling issues such as relevant rent andthe ticket sales for the next concert.

Q: In other words, there will be rescheduling?
A:We may have brought too much disappointment to the fans already. For them, at worst, we will even consider doing a free concert. Far all the problems that have happened with the concerts, we will re-look at the mand come up with improved strategies. There after, we will rescheduleafter proper planning. Such an incident will not happen again.
