[fan made] Let us revisit the “serene forest deity” & the “introverted rock star.”


— Stephe ^@@^

(now that I can talk again)

This is why Rain’s photo shoots are so successful and full of emotion… he isn’t just posing here.  Not really.  He has created a character in his mind, the same way he does for his music videos and for his acting roles (based on his surroundings, and on the tone the director and photographer need to convey in the pictures).

It may appear that he’s using the same facial expressions in both shoots, but he’s not.  Look closer.  For NR, he was at peace and quietly happy.  For HB, he was sullen and somewhat sad and lonely.

I’ve written fictional characters for years, so I can spot the process when someone else is doing it too.  And so can Terri.

The man is good.
