[audio clip] During Speeding’s K vs R, R vs K: Rain sings live.

Cloud cover by: Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^ 2:38 am EST

{* Edited to Add: Funny thing was, Rain mic-tested like he was gonna bust out a dance song — say ho! say ho-ho! (echo) — but he hit a ballad instead. LOL! 🙂 ^@@^}

Aigooooooooo, what an unexpected treat. I think I had some type of stroke when this happened. I can still feel the aftereffects.

This morning at around 12:27 am Eastern time (1:27 pm Korea time), during the “K대R, R대K” (KCM versus Rain, Rain versus KCM) segment of military radio show Speeding Instinct, our beloved DJs seemed to have a ballad battle on the studio live mic. Before we knew what the heck he was about, Rain stepped up and did a shortened version of Lee Juk’s “It’s Fortunate/I’m So Fortunate” and blew us the hell away. Stunned doesn’t even come close to describing what we were all feeling in Tweetland. I wish I remembered what KCM sang right after that. I know he sounded good too! Perhaps it will come out in the show translation and full show audio clip. *fingers crossed*

In the meantime, enjoy this impromptu performance from JiHoon live on 국방 FM, barely two hours ago. — Stephe ^@@^

  9. The best moment of that program was when Rain was singing that beautiful song He really made me cry with his beautiful interpretation. All the clouds, united in an instant…. was wonderful !!

  10. Did you see it? OMG I don’t know but seeing that translation, even the title “Im so fortunate” it talks about not feeling alone even in the worst moment because you’re always there for me, so I thought JiHoon always says that we, his Clouds are ones who are there for him no matter what and that his Clouds are his strenght. I think he’s trying to tell us that even when he’s going thru a bad moment right now, he knows that we are there for him and that he’ll be alright. Sighhh I want to be wrong but I it’s killing me that I may be right. 😦

  11. Wow!! I am stunned not only cuz JiHoon beautiful interpretation of this song but also cuz its meaning! When I looked at the translation it hit me like a ton of bricks. Call me crazy but I think that JiHoon knows about the petition we did and maybe he’s letting us know in the only way he knows how, thru singing, that he knows and that he is grateful for our support. I could be wrong and I don’t want to upset you with my observation but I think I’m
    right.

  12. I have played this song over and over. Can’t get enough of it. Well, I just really can’t get enough of Bi singing this beautiful ballad. I just went to YT to hear Lee Juk sing this song and even though his version was wonderful, I LOVE hearing Bi sing it.

    Terri I’m with you. Bi would “kill” and audience singing ballads like that. They’d have to give each person a box of Kleenex as they walked into the concert venue. I’m not a “crier” per se and I didn’t just now BUT, I love when a song “moves” me and Bi singing THIS song Moved me. I can’t stop playing it.

    Dude went DEEP………and I was right there with you Bi baby!

    • Hi, Kongsao.

      We were all listening to Rain on his radio show last night when he surprised us and began to sing some of this song — Lee Juk’s “I’m So Fortunate” from the Kdrama “Scent of a Woman.” He was singing it LIVE on the air. Ratoka was recording the show and immediately cut that part out and posted it so that everyone could hear what he had done. (I recorded the show too.) Right afterwards, I posted ratoka’s YouTube clip here. By then, everyone on Twitter and Facebook and Rain sites were already listening to it. Everybody had Rain’s two and a half minute cover last night, right after he sang it.

      Looks like “your friend” got the live song from ratoka too, so I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking. ??

      Never mind all of that. I see what happened, you think I posted the lyrics in the comments but it was Terri, not me.

      I’m sure Terri got the lyrics from a lyrics site. “I’m So Fortunate” is not a new song. It’s an old song that a lot of people already know. People have had these lyrics for several years. 🙂

  15. OMG! *panty liner alert* should be the title of this post!

    You know all jokes aside, I like that I’ve “come to know” all the stages in JiHoon’s singing career. Hearing his teenage vocals up until this point. WOW is all I can say. You can hear the growth. You can feel and hear the maturity and the richness in his vocals. You’d have to be a dead woman not too!

    Geez, he could make a woman any woman WANT TO cook a 20 course meal and do the laundry (without complaint)…….just Sing to me like THAT Sweetness! Honey, that’s “whatever YOU want me to do Big Daddy”…..kinda singing. (SMILES)…………Mercy!

  16. Mesmerizing.

    As good as many singers are, many of them have trouble emoting enough when they sing. Rain, however, seems to do it without any effort at all. Incredible.

    Then again, Fortunate is an amazingly beautiful ballad, with so much meaning behind the words, that maybe it wasn’t that difficult for him at all. Maybe he had no trouble thinking about someone special in his life with those beautiful lyrics (which I share below my comment. Hopefully they are pretty accurate…).

    Rain really should write and perform more ballads and love songs. Maybe now that he is older, he will. Even better, maybe he’ll meet someone that he’ll want to sing them to.

    Terri :-}

    ******

    Fortunate/I’m So Fortunate

    For meeting you…
    And being able to touch your hair
    For meeting you…
    And being able to look at each other
    For getting to hug you
    And being able to cry when it gets tough
    I’m so fortunate
    For the beautiful world that knows you

    In the violent and wind and under a wet roof
    Not getting tossed out there by myself
    Wearisome daily life, and toilsome survival
    It’s not something meaningless

    Always having remained at my side
    It’s because of an amazing person
    You

    For meeting you…
    And being able to make the meals we share
    For meeting you…
    And being able to hold your hand
    Whenever it starts to feel numb
    For getting to hug you
    And being able to comfort you
    I’m so fortunate
    For the beautiful world that knows you
    Placing you here

    In the violent and wind and under a wet roof
    Not getting tossed out there by myself
    Wearisome daily life, and toilsome survival
    It’s not something meaningless
