A car carrying Korea’s top pop star Rain was stopped by Hong Kong police last Thursday for violating the speed limit, according to reports.
Rain, who has become an Asian heartthrob, was in Hong Kong Jan. 12-14 for concerts. It was part of the 25-year-old’s World tour titled ``Rain’s Coming.’’ The tour started in Korea last December.
Rain’s car was chased by a horde of paparazzi, who have closely followed the star since his arrival Wednesday, reports said. In an attempt to escape the pursuers, Rain’s car sped to 100 km/h exceeding the speed limit of 80 km/h.
As police stopped Rain’s car, the following cars of the paparazzi and fans also halted, creating a major traffic disorder. The police charged the driver about 450 Hong Kong dollars, or 54,000 won ($58).
Despite the incident, Rain’s Hong Kong concerts thrilled fans with extravagant stage effects and the clean-cut singer’s flashy dance moves, reports said.
