Rain and Park Si-hoo have recently seen the glitter of their stars dim down. But putting that past behind, the two stars are expected return to the fans and public spotlight.

This Saturday, the 31-year-old Rain who was discharged from the military in July has scheduled a fan meeting at Kyunghee University in Seoul. This will mark an official first reunion with the public in Korea. After being disciplined in the military for taking days off to date his actress girlfriend Kim Tae-hee, Rain has been keeping a low profile in Korea. But he has been more active on overseas stages such as in Thailand, China. This Friday, again on a foreign stage this time in Singapore, Rain will hold a showcase in addition to attending the “2013 Singapore Fashion Week” held at Marina Bay Sands.

In November, Rain will embark on a four-city concert tour through Japan, starting off with a performance in Nagoya on Nov. 14-15.

Actor Park Si-hoo, 35, was spotted on Oct. 5 returning to Korea after staying in the United States. Park also issued an apology saying that he will return to a “beginner’s mindset.” He was engulfed in controversy when he was accused in February of raping an aspiring actress after having a drink session. The woman later in May dropped the charges. Then his film, “I’m the Murderer” went onto the large screens in Japan where he enjoys high popularity. Park’s agency said that there are no plans this year for his comeback.
