RAIN had received his enlistment notice in May and there were fears that he might not be able to complete filming for his upcoming drama, Fugitive in time. Not just the drama, RAIN also has on his schedule, undertaking a masters degree course, concerts in Japan and a possible movie.
His company, J.Tune Entertainment then submitted a request to delay Rain’s enlistment because of his busy schedule and word came today from the Military Manpower Administration (MMA) that it has been granted. As a result, Rain’s next enlistment window will happen earliest in 2011.
