The monthly salary of world star Rain who is currently serving in the army shocked many people. What surprised them more is that even with such little pay of 80,000 won($70.42) he confessed, “I have nowhere to use them.”

On April 8, Rain attended the 2012 Culture Festival for Army Recruits and had a talk with military personnel.

When military personnel went up the platform and asked, “I’m curious about how much money you have.” Rain wanted to be recognized as soldier Jung Ji Hoon rather than singer Rain, so he replied, “I’m sorry, but let us only talk about military related stories.” Entertainer soldier Lee Jin Ho, who emceed the event, asked Rain, “I heard that Rain is earning 80,000 won a month.”

Rain revealed, “I honestly have nowhere to spend my money. If I go back in I think I’ll be spending most of them on PX.” Rain who entered military in October of last year said, “I entered here exactly eight months ago. I now have a completely fresh viewpoint.”

The Culture Festival for Army Recruits is an event to express gratitude towards the young military soldiers and their parents.
