Revisiting: The beginning of Rain’s farewell to his 2010 comeback trail.

Ah, be still my heart! ♥

Emotionally, this was a hard week (May 24-30). In a small way, we were glad for it because Rain’s May schedule had worn us the hell out, but in a BIG way, we’d gotten used to having new “Love Song” and “Hip Song” stages for two straight months and it was devastating to have to give them up and let Rain go. But he had to move on—Fugitive filming and the Busan National Sports Festival awaited. He also had to hightail it over to the States for the MTV Movie Awards. AND hightail it over to Japan, for ZEPP. So it just couldn’t be helped… it was goodbye to the Back To The Basic comeback trail that he’d begun at the beginning of April. (His Music Bank farewell would air on Friday the 28th, and his Music Core farewell, with that sexy heartbeat dance flow in it HERE, would air on Saturday the 29th.)

Do enjoy this, Rain’s very first farewell show for that week, on M!Countdown May 27th. (I believe 2PM was saying goodbye too… look up in the video’s left-hand corner, where it says ADIEU Bi & 2PM…) There was some discussion at the time about whether or not it was a tear that slipped from Rain’s eye at the end of his performance or just perspiration. I leaned towards the tear theory—it had to have been very emotional for him to say goodbye to his music chart show fans, perhaps for good, especially while celebrating his 8-year career debut… and it didn’t look to me that he’d even broken a sweat. His face was as dry as bone except for that one wet trail. Just sayin’.

And here’s a gallery for all the newer fans who weren’t in the Rain World Nation back at this time.  (Okay, yes, it’s for me too, because he’s wearing my favorite black pants.)

  1. I also think it was a tear. It made me get emotional watching this performance because I didn’t want to see it end.

    It’s crazy how long it’s been since Rains’ debut. I wish I would have known about him from the very beginning. However I am thankful to this blog for always revisiting past performances. It’s great to see how much he’s grown and matured. 🙂


  2. Black pants are the business!!! I always thought it was a tear… Dude wasn’t even sweating…


  3. Awwwww yes, Rain was emotional from the moment he started to sing. His face says it all. Yep, he was crying and BaegKa said the other day in an interview that he don’t cry easily coz all the things that happened in his life so that he cried here breaks my heart. Rain loves to perform; being in a stage with his fans shouting at his every move is what fills him as an artist so to know that he wouldn’t be able to be in a stage for a long time hurts him. He is soo special, usually performers don’t like that his fans scream while they perform a song but Rain wants us to SCREAM!!! and the harder the better. Lol!!!! In the Adieu Concert he cracked me up coz he was singing and he wasn’t satisfies with the volume of screaming so he started to push the audience to scream harder. Lol!!! He was so silly!! I know that being out of the stage is going to be difficult for him and I hope that the powers behind the military gives him the opportunity to permorm while he is doing MS coz he needs that. He will be a fish without water if he can’t perform in a stage.
