RAINY DAY Season 3, episode 27. Come back to Busan Port… a magnificent idea.

Sit back and relax, dear Rain fans. We’re continuing our journey from last weekend, through the casual rehearsal for the RAIN The Best Show 2011 Korea tour concert.

(Yes, JiHoon, inspect the safety harness for that platform thoroughly. Your life depends on it!)

Virtual superhero intro, check. Live band, check. Lighting, check. So far, so good. And it doesn’t matter how many times I see the virtual intro and Rain’s demeanor in that thing, as if he is coming down from On High and he KNOWS we’re going to be under his spell the entire time, I never get tired of it. Watching his creativity play out day to day is so darned entertaining!

And so “Hip Song’ and “Touch Ya” go off without a hitch. And “You (make me crazy)” and “I Love You Again.” The Men Behind the Man are looking GOOD.  The Women are GORGEOUS. Hmm. I never knew that the Union Jack could look so s-w-e-e-t on the side of a man’s thigh, but then it is JiHoon‘s thigh, right? Just an observation. 🙂

Lord, the choreography of “Don’t Stop”, as it flows out of Rain’s long body, has been a favorite of mine for years. Rarrr.

Ah! We get a treasured glimpse of the song most special to the Best Busan stop—popular vintage Kpop hit “Come Back To Busan Port” (or Return To Busan Port), made famous by 61-year-old Kpop legend Cho YongPil, considered by many the most influential figure in Korean Pop music. It really was a magnificent idea, and so thoughtful, to include something so personal to a host city in its concert. Nice job, Rain!

And then… yes! A look at some rehearsal time for “September”, the U.S. R&B 70s hit from the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire (not to be confused with “September 12”, that’s a whole other puppy). Don’t you just love the way he belts out “Septem-baaaaaaah!” Heheh.

Looks like, for all intents and purposes, this Best Korea casual run-through is over, which means we may be somewhere else next Saturday. Any ideas as to where that will be? See you then, Rain fans!

  2. There is still plenty of Rain stuff that we haven’t seen at all, yet. Charity concert events, all the magazine shoots this year, Flight Close to the Sun filming and the press cons coming up and the premiere, his military activities and projects, Paris and Europe and bits of vacation stuff from the wintertime, MCM store opening stuff, all the fan meets this year… I could go on.

    I don’t know that there’s going to be a Season 4, but I don’t see why there won’t be.

  3. I have to say I am more than disappointed that they are putting recent events on this season. I was hoping they’d do a Rainy Day Season 4 next year with this tour in it so that clouds would have something to watch next year while he’s away.

    But considering they are showing the tour in these last episodes I guess there won’t be a season 4. Bummer. Dunno what they are thinking.


  4. I miss you already dearest Rain..
