South Korean K-Pop legend Rain made his debut performance in Cambodia, headlining the Smart Mega Concert on Diamond Island for up to 50,000 fans on Thursday, 30th March 2017.
The concert was organised by IMS Consulting Group, Cambodia’s premier media agency, in partnership with top rated television network SEATV and exclusively sponsored by leading telecom Smart Axiata.
At a press conference held earlier in the day at Nagaworld Hotel Rain made his first public appearance with the media and a group of contest winning Smart Axiata subscribers. While answering questions from reporters Rain explained he was so happy to finally be performing in Cambodia and thanked his local fans for their support in making it possible.
There were already large crowds gathered on Koh Pich when the Smart Mega Concert started at 5 pm with a celebration of original Cambodian songs performed by many of the country’s most popular singers including Khmeng Khmer, Miss Eda, Miss Laura Mam, Nikki Nikki, P-Sand and Bross La.
At 8:30pm a crescendo of cheers rang out from the audience as Rain launched into the first of two sets showcasing his unique mix of high energy, R&B styled K-Pop. The star, also known as Jung Ji-hoon, sang some of his best-known hit songs such as “It Is Raining”, “Hip Song”, “How To Avoid The Sun”, “I Do” and “La Song” all of which received an overwhelmingly positive response from the tens of thousands of assembled fans.
Following the successful conclusion of the concert representatives of event organiser IMS Consulting Group praised Rain’s exhilarating performance before highlighting both the professional partnership with SEATV and strong support from Smart Axiata in making the King of K-Pop’s Cambodian debut possible.
