Bless KB Financial for having the vision of letting Rain endorse their KB Star Card – sincerely and truly, bless you, KB Financial!  In this second installment, I’d like to visit 2 more CFs Rain gave us for KB Star Card.  As in the previous two, I guarantee you will see why Rain’s vast appeal truly does set him apart from other performers, Asian or otherwise – and why I continue to believe that no matter what the project, he approaches each with commitment, dedication, focus and fun!

In this fresh California skater-inspired spot, Rain throws on his magic t-shirt and bounces through the byways of Pomona, California.  Pomona, California?  Huh?  I first thought it could be Hermosa Beach because it looked familiar to me, as I lived in that area at one time.  But, the street signs visible during a portion of this ad (I swear I must have paused the video a dozen times to fully read the signs) reveal that they are indeed located in Pomona, California.

As his t-shirt tells a story, he free-spiritedly moves through this ad full of funk, mischief and fun.  I have to wonder if Rain would be cool with me labeling him funky, mischievous and fun?!  I just love the ever-present easy smile he wears throughout these 30 seconds.

Then, KB decided to capitalize on something we ALL know to be true and collectively agree upon:  Rain’s indomitable sex appeal.  Turning up the heat with this 35 second spot of pure hot, Rain is joined by Lee Hyori and the result is sizzling!  I happen to think the combined beauty of these two together ignite and set the screen on fire.

Check out this making of clip as a primer (no subs).  In addition to all of that prevalent chemistry these two share, they also appear to simply enjoy working together, make each other laugh and genuinely like each other.  I think if I were in Lee Hyori’s shoes, I would have made an art of the NG so that I would have to re-do all of the scenes over and over and over again.  Just speaking my truth here!

Here is the finished product:

I love the concept of this CF with the two of them essentially looking at items they either want to buy the other or simply fantasize having.  Oh steamy dreaminess!  Seeing Rain languidly leaning his long frame against a motorcycle and then locking in on Hyori’s eyes just fires up the thermostat a bit, wouldn’t you say?

By the end of the CF, I completely forgot what it was even about or what it was supposed to be endorsing!  And, Rain in a ponytail…..swoon!!!  I love all of Rain’s looks, but have a definite soft spot for this long hair partially pulled back in a ponytail version.  LOVE.  This must be around the same time Ninja Assassin was happening because he is sporting that gorgeous longer ‘do and his face is so lean and chiseled.

Rain, Lee Hyori and a debit card?  A totally surprising combination of sexy hot that just works!

  1. Nice CF; I agree Bialamode; it’s ancient history


  2. Oh and I agree about the ad. “Booty calls” aside, they did make a great advertising duo and I’m sure their ad was great for business.


  3. There’s a reason you see all that “chemistry” between Bi and Hyori. For you Rain newbies, Hyori was supposedly…..Allegedly one of Bi’s “early-in-his-career booty calls.” Yes, that’s right….and miss Hyori was never one to be shy about her attraction to Bi at that time.

    I won’t re-hash all that old history here, but if you go back to some of our early days comments you’ll get the gist of the “sitchiation” or go back to old new stories. Honestly, I thought it was cute and not surprising…he’s a guy after all. However, Bi (ever the gentleman) has remained “mum” to this day and I’m sure he always will. *SMILES*
