[clip] Revisiting August 2009: Legend of Rainism’s first stop, Saitama.

The particular performance of “I’m Coming” at LoR Saitama, Japan, will always stick out in my mind. Why?

Well, because 1) Rain was really earning his Master of Exhale title during the song (heheh) and dancing his sexy butt OFF, 2) I had not heard the Trampoline Dance music nor seen any portion of that dance since his original performance on the MBC Songs Festival (December 2008) and it surprised the heck out of me, and 3) news media from that time period reported that during the first show (the Saitama Super Arena stop was for two nights) Rain had landed wrong and hurt his leg after a mid-platform leap down onto the main stage (and of course, gone on with the show). This is the only place where Rain leapt from anywhere onto the stage during the whole thing, as far as I can see.

Supposedly, people saw him at a Tokyo area hospital directly after the concert, and the injury turned out to be only a sprain and the tour wasn’t affected at all. It did scare me though, because the last thing he needed was to have to go through a bunch of concerts badly injured the way he had in 2007, after fracturing his arm and getting knocked unconscious in Hong Kong, during his World Tour. Thank heavens he was okay this time. *shudder* He’s one tough cookie.

Enjoy this! It’s magnificent.

  4. I think I remember what you’re talking about. I went back and re-watched parts of the concert DVD, which naturally took awhile because I kept getting distracted… But who can blame me?! Cuteness and sexiness galore! Anyways, I only saw one spot where Rain seemed to actually be visibly pained because of his leg, and that was during the encore of With You. I suppose he could have hurt it beforehand during a jump and we just didn’t see his reaction. When I first saw it I thought he had injured it during the encore. But if he injured it before then kudos to him for going through almost the entire concert without anyone noticing!
