[clips] Strictly for the visuals: Before he was “Rain.”

Cloud cover by: Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^

This first one is pretty much a bona fide Blast From The Past, really, if not the ultimate BFTP. It is the clearest version to date that I’ve seen of 비 being showcased and introduced to Korea as a principle dancer (KBS Music Plus, 2001). This was the year before his debut as a singer/idol, and will always be one of the most precious videos I’ve ever come across. Just precious. (We still wonder how he managed to move his body like that!)

And this jewel is 비, barely a month past his April 2002 debut, on an MBC idol game show hosted by radio personality Park KyungLim. I tell you, even without a translation, at times this thing had me hollering. 비 having to successfully eat an orange while being slingshot up into the air? ROFLMAO!
