RAINY DAY Season 3, episode 18: A louder, harder, grittier Hip Song.

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

Asia broadcast 7/30.

We left off last week in the middle of rehearsal for Rain’s BEST Macao concert stop on his Asia tour, and it is there where we pick back up again. Which is just fine with us!

Let me say right off the bat that I dig the totally rocked out way the live band plays “Hip Song”. They add something that gives it such a fresh new flavor. Makes me want to plant one foot forward and do a little head-banging. Awesome. They seem to be pretty attuned to Rain and his vision of how things should go as well, without a bunch of hiccups. He talks, they deliver.

I also dig the way he adjusted his own delivery of the “Hip Song” lyrics to match up with the band’s version. He went louder. Harder. Grittier. And from the fan cams we’ve already seen from BEST Macao, it worked. Beautifully! The rocked out version of this song is something that I hope we continue to hear for a long time to come.

Watch JiHoon go from instrument to instrument, laying down the invisible track that he’s played in his own head. He’s almost like the conductor of an orchestra in the middle of an epiphany.

Oh wow. That was cool—the guitar player coming down and joining Rain at the “Love Story” steam shower. WOW. Not only does the guy play some smokin’ mean strings, he’s good looking to boot!

Well there you go—proof positive that you can’t have guys and lasers in the same place at the same time without a “let’s see what happens when I do this” session. LOL! Rain: Look at my green lasers. I got green lasers. Look at them. Hyung 1: But I can stand on it, though. Hyung 2: Big deal. I can put my arm though it. Hyung 3: I can stop it with my hand! Hyung 4: Huh. Watch this. (stops the beam with his crotch) Rain: Look at my green lasers. I got green lasers. Look at them. 🙂

Will we get more rehearsal next episode, or get into the concert itself, or receive something totally unexpected from the RAINY DAY gods instead? We shall see, fans. Cheers, until next week! 😀

  1. Loved watching this and how he’s changing it up a bit.


  2. I love to see rehersals cuz here you see a mastermind at work!! Rain knows how to put dancing, music, special effects and his singing skills to achieve perfection. Not an easy task!! Everybody must follow him without missing a step. I must say that his band and chorus are spectacular!! Their sound is perfect and they follow Rain to the last note. His dancers are
    great too, they are his crew and know every step
    of every song. Is not easy when you have so
    many songs to dance, specially when ALL of
    them are vigorous dancing. They only take a
    break during Nan. Rain have an amazing team!!


  3. Love, love the guitar, it adds a bit of an edge to the song. Rain certainly has an ear for music…..he’s so good at knowing how to piece everything together.
