On the night of the Lantern Festival, Rain, who was dressed in racer's outfit joined in the fun of setting off firecrackers.
Rain is currently filming his TVC in Shanghai. It was lantern festival the day before, and he joined in the fun of setting off firecrackers. At first he found it fun, but when the sounds of firecracker went on non-stop, it affected his recording work and caused him to lose sleep as well, Rain complained that it scares him!
Rain was in Shanghai the year before to shoot his serial drama "Full House". The beautiful scenery there left a deep impression on Rain. This time round, he is back in Shanghai for five days filming his Pantech TVC, and will be shooting scenes in various part of Shanghai. Female lead, Sun Li of movie "Huo Yuan Jia" will be acting as one of Rain's die-hard fan who was blinded while attending one of Rain's concert. A beautiful love relationship developed between the two.
In the TVC, Rain appears in many different images, changing up to 5 sets of clothings per day, including long coats, F1 race outfits, white shirts, purple coats and LV coats with long boots. Outdoor shooting locations include Che Tun indoor filming site to Xin Tian Di etc. Where Rain appears, hundreds of fans are sure to tag along. Hence, the Pantech hired 6 tall security personnel to maintain safety and orderly.
It's Lantern Festival the night before. According to Shanghai traditions, people were setting off firecrackers everywhere. At the outdoor shooting location, playful Rain had a go at setting off firecrackers as well. At first he found it really fun, but that night, when he was at the studio recording his Chinese song, the ongoing noises of the firecracker soon became a source of distraction. On top of that, sound-proofing proved to be another problem, and the session had to be cancelled. Even when he returned to the hotel, the firecracker sound haunted him so he couldn't rest properly. The next day, he was expressing phobia upon seeing firecrackers.
Other than sleeping problems, he couldn't eat well too. As Rain wasn't used to eating Shanghai food, he got staff members to help him buy Korean rice boxes and Kimchi ramen for meals. As to his female lead, Sun Li, she wasn't worried about worried fans despite the many intimate scenes with Rain, such as hugging and holding hands. She said that Rain was easy-going and very serious towards work, but was worried that Rain would have problem with eating and sleeping because he looked tired during filming.

Rain is very discreet about his trip to Shanghai this time round. Fans had to wait around Che Tun to catch a glimpse of their idol.
Yesterday was Rain's second day in Shanghai. His primary tasks were to familiarize with the dance steps, try out his images designed for the TVC, as well as attend a photoshoot session in Che Tun for the TVC's publicity photos. Filming of the TVC commence officially today, while the main highlights of the TVC, the dance scene with Sun Li, will be filmed on the 15th.
With a lighter schedule yesterday, Rain had a chance to explore Shanghai's nightlife the day before with four bodyguards. He was dressed casually, and was hardly recognized as he walked along the streets. He didn't take the car prepared for him by the local organizer, but took a cab back to his hotel with his bodyguards.
Despite the late night out, Rain woke up early at 6.30am and headed to Che Tun to try TVC images and attended the photoshoot session. Upon reaching Che Tun, he immediately expressed interest in the old buildings of Shanghai in the 30th century. Although the buildings were unauthentic, he still recorded them on his DV, and even requested to make time on his schedule so he can visit these structures.
Yesterday, during his free time between trying on his images, Rain practiced Mandarin with his Chinese tutor. According to his tutor, his Chinese has improved significantly, and he can now converse in basic mandarin. However, he still needs some correcting in his TVC script.
The female lead, Sun Li, also appeared at the photoshoot yesterday. Other than practicing her dance moves, she has also been working hard at her Hangeul, hoping to communicate better with Rain. In order to understand Rain better, Sun Li has watched Rain's serial drama, "Full House", twice.

Rain expressed [I have put in a lot of effort to learn Mandarin, in a scale of 100, I would say I score 80, working with Shun-Li is a very good experience.] When the topic turned to his rumored girlfriend, Song Hae-Gyo, he said [She’s a very good actor, a good friend, we are very busy, so there is no time to work together again.] Question (Why you neglected your fans?) This time the main purpose to come here is to do the commercial shoot, I shall make time to meet my fans next time.]
