Please NOTE: This translation was done to ratoka’s video on vimeo, but my computer will not go to that URL because it has been alerted to some kind of threat there (virus, malware, spyware, I don’t know).

I’ve no idea if the threat is true or just a false alarm, but in any case I am embedding an alternative URL (ratoka’s video on dailymotion) instead. So if the minute markers and the audio are a little off, you know why. (I can’t imagine anyone not being smart enough to just follow along).

Enjoy. ^@@^

(English translation by 화니)

Rain starts making a run to the top again.

0:49
In front of Rain’s house on 12 November 2013.

0:50~52
[Rain] : Bye.
[His manager] : Bye.

0:56
Hidden cameras are placed throughout his home.

1:22
His pet dog only gives a warm welcome to him.
[Rain] : Jangoony (his pet dog No.1), come on.

1:28
[Rain] : Get out of here!

1:37
Rain looking around.

1:44
Rain can’t seem to get used to the hidden cameras.

1:51
[Rain] : Phew..too many cameras!

1:57
This reality show is quite new to the 32-year-old Rain.

2:05
Rain looking for a place to change his clothes.

2:13
Rain poking his head out the door.

2:21
This solution is a fudge rushed in to hide himself changing clothes. [A what rushed in? S. ^@@^]

2:22
[Rain] : It’s driving me frantic!

2:29
[Rain] : How could they install so many cameras!

2:23
[Rain] : I shouldn’t have accepted the offer.
Rain regretting it very much.

2:39
[Rain] : Phew..It seems to me that it is not.

2:44
[Rain] : I regret immensely what I’ve done. This job is driving me insane.

2:50
[Rain] : Sarangy (Rain’s pet dog No 2), come on!

2:54
[Rain] : Sit down! (to Sarangy) Sit down!

2:57
[Rain] : You’re screwing around because I treat you nicely.

3:02
[Rain] : Sit down! Sit down! Please sit down!

3:16
[Rain] : I know..I know..

3:18
As soon as Sarangy sees the food, he rushes to it like he is possessed.

3:22
[Rain] : Sit down Sit down!
Rain vying with his dog for hierarchy.

3:24
[Rain]: I want to have some food, too.

3:29
Rain is feeling peckish, so he goes through the fridge.

3:45
Rain can’t find the fridge door.

3:48
He finds that there is nothing to eat in the refrigerator.

3:57~4:03
[Rain] : Hey, Gang-pal!, now I don’t have anything to eat. Where are you?

4:05
[Rain] : I see.. I’ll hang up.

4:09
Rain tries operating his TV remote controller, but the TV doesn’t work.

4:14
He seems not to be used to operating electronics.

4:19
He calls his sister on the telephone.

4:26
Rain looking around.

4:29
[Rain] : Hana! Why doesn’t the TV work?

4:33
[Rain] : Now it is working.

4:39
But, TV still doesn’t work.

4:42
[Rain] : Ok, the biggest button on the left?

4:48
[Rain] : The green power is switched on, but TV still doesn’t work.

4:50
[Rain] : I have no idea why.

4:52
As Rain just isn’t interested in domestic life, he’s incapable of doing such a simple task.

5:01
He finally withers on the vine.

5:06
[Rain’s friend ‘Gwang-min’, whose nickname is Gwang-pal] : Hey, Rain.

5:13
[Rain] : Aren’t you hungry?
[Gwang-min] : So I’ve bought some Taco.

5:18
[Rain] : Many cameras have been placed throughout my home.

5:19
‘Gwang-min’ has been working as an unknown actor for 10 years, and putting aside all his work to go follow Rain is a byproduct of one of Gwang-min’s character traits.

5:20
[Gwang-min] : I still get nervous when I am taken by the camera even though I am an actor with ten years’ experience. [laughs]

5:25~31
[Gwang-min] : I should pose for the camera naturally.
[Rain] : You know, it’s over the top. Do as you usually do, please.

5:41
[Rain] : I wonder if the reality show is true.

5:44~54
[Gwang-min] : Frankly, it is difficult to just act naturally while the camera rolls.
[Rain] : Like you?

5:55~6:06
[Gwang-min] : I guess I find myself acting in a play in such a situation.
[Rain] : Don’t worry, let your feelings be your guide and become abusive, because your swear words will be removed in final editing.

6:09~16
[Gwang-min] : I should have shown my Korean gangster rap.
I have to continue to act professionally to support myself.
[Rain] : Your name has been spelled as an unknown actor with ten years’ experience on my mobile.

6:20
[Gwang-min] :That way, I may not receive attention from scouts.

6:21~40
[Rain] : This reality show makes me think I need to share my every movement with fans.

6:41~55
[Gwang-min] : Now you need to throw off the mask of mysterious respectability as a star, and become human again.
[Rain] : Taco is so delicious!

6:58~59
Rain is obsessed with eating!
[Gwang-min] : Mexico-style food is very trendy.

7:03~26
[Rain] : Anyway, I am quite concerned whether….
[Gwang-min] : Me too.
[Rain] : What’s your worry?
[Gwang-min] : I worry about you.
[Rain] : Did I do anything wrong?
[Gwang-min] : I should conduct myself properly.
[Rain] : You don’t have to even think about meddling in my affairs.
[Gwang-min] : If I make a revealing comment, I cannot tell what may happen in the future.
[Rain] : I don’t mind.

7:29~41
[Gwang-min] : [Cutting to other subject], I stopped by Gangnam Station to do my shopping.
[Rain] : What made you decide to go there?
[Gwang-min] : This is the latest thing in mufflers. I got a bargain when I bought it for half price.
[Rain] : You’re running me down. [giggling]

7:45~56
[Gwang-min] : We’ll have to show how well Koreans perform in Japan.
[Rain] : By the way, when I arrived at the airport after my discharge from the army, I found that there were so many newspaper reporters in and out of it as if they resided there.

7:58
Rain left for Japan on 13 November 2013.

8:09~12
[Rain] : I can’t believe my eyes. I wonder how they could place the cameras inside of the car!

8:13~25
[Rain] : Hi, boss, it’s me. PSY just called and told me that he has some concerns that he’d like to discuss when I’m scheduled abroad.

8:26
Rain is pretty much tied up.

8:27~40
[Rain] : I will be holding concerts in the Japan for the first time in four years, and my tour will feature concerts in about five cities for 15 days.
I’m sure that must be very interesting.

8:54
Rain gets a glimpse of a beauty parlor on the way.

9:01
[Rain] : Hello!

9:05
Rain washing his hair.

9:10~16
[Rain] : You should have bought a stuff used for washing hair earlier.
Just pour water on my hair, please.

9:26
Rain getting a massage from a mysterious woman longer than usual.
[Rain] : You are giving me a massage longer than usual.

9:32
[Rain ] : Ouch! Take it easy!

9:37~49
[‘Lee Seo-hyun’, who is a make-up artist in charge of Rain’s make-up and who tries to be all things to him.]
[Rain] : My crew team told me, “It’s incredible that it can be located in a place like this.” [laughs]
[Lee Seo-hyun] : That’s why it is so different.

9:52
[Rain] : Please put on my makeup with great care because I want to look nice.

9:57
It bothers the 32-year-old Rain to think of how he will look at the airport.

10:01
He looking at himself in the mirror with his face nicely made up.

10:08
To the exclusion of his nose, Rain is concealing his face with his collar and glasses after his make-up.

10:13
[Rain] : Let’s go!
Gwang-min is sitting in the car already.

10:16~40
[PD] : Rain, your friend Gwang-min is accompanying you to your tour in Japan?
[Rain] : Yes, he will be a helper for me during the tour. We’ll help each other.
[Gwang-min] : I try to make time for him despite my busy schedule. [laughs]
[Rain] : He has nothing else to do even in Korea. [laughs]

10:41~55
[Rain] : Gwang-min has been my best friend for over 12 years since we were sophomores in high school.
[Gwang-min] : We first met each other when we were first-year high school students.
[Rain] : We started being good friends when we were sophomores.
[Gwang-min] : That’s right.

10:59~11:10
[Gwang-min] : Rain was very popular at the time, but he always stops me from talking back to him, keep bringing up the great reputation he had in his first-year high school days. I’ve also risen to fame as an actor despite being in the underground film scene. [laughs]

11:11~28
It has been exactly three months since ‘Choi Sang-hyun’, who is Rain’s manager, joined Cube Entertainment. When he needs to talk to his superiors, he inwardly breaks in on them.

[Gwang-min] : I think ‘Choi Snag-hyun’ has a facial resemblance to actor ‘Lee Hee-joon’.
[Rain] : Right! I thought that Choi was a model at first. Isn’t he eager to gain a foothold in the job? [laughs]
[Gwang-min] : His job may be a sham. [laughs]

Choi smiles awkwardly for a moment even though he is aware of the fact that the two say that in a jovial manner.

11:30~32
[Rain] : Choi already knows that I’m a little scary.

11:37
Incheon International Airport.

11:39
Rain is besieged by fans who want to get his autograph. It shows no sign of slowing down.

11:41
[Fans] : Please, have a nice trip and be safe!

11:43
The place is swarming with reporters, all in a great frenzy to get the story.

11:47~50
[A reporter] : What’s the purpose of your visit to Japan?
[Rain] : I’m departing from the country for my concert tour there.

11:56
Rain being mobbed by photographers and fans.

12:10
That he is well received among many people puts a smile on his face.

12:15
Rain can entertain himself.

12:31
Rain finally arrives in Japan, showing off his popularity as a world star.

12:46
At a rehearsal before his concert in Fukuoka.
[Rain] : I’m gonna check ‘I’m Coming’ first.

12:50
His concert is in rehearsal.

12:53
Rain keeps tighter checks at the rehearsal because he has come to hold concerts in Japan for the first time in four years.

13:03
The rehearsal reminds people of a real performance.

13:12
[Rain] : Please raise up the monitor a little further.

13:17
[Rain] : Yes, that’ll be fine. Let’s move on to the next.

13:23
Rain wasting no efforts in making thorough preparations for his concert.

13:30
[Rain] : Thank you very much.

13:37
Fukuoka hotel on the afternoon of the day.

13:41
Rain arriving at his hotel after his rehearsal.

13:45
Rain finding the camera.

13:48
The Rain Effect camera can’t be avoided even in Japan.

13:56~58
[Rain] : Whew! Dad, I am so tired I could die!

14:10
[Rain] : I wonder how many of cameras are placed here.

14:12
Rain still has a hard time adjusting to the cameras.

14:14
[Rain] : Aren’t the cameras stashed under the bed?

14:21
[Rain] : This one looks like a camera.

14:33
[Rain] : Wow! There is another one here!

14:35
Rain repeatedly lets out exclamations of surprise at the scene.

14:36
[Rain] : I wonder how many of cameras are placed !

14:40
Rain just wears a vinyl hair cap provided by the hotel.

14:45
The war of nerves between Rain and the cameras seems likely to continue.

14:56
Rain is still washing his face even though the camera is rolling three times faster than before.

15:06
[Rain] : It’s important that I wash my face to be a handsome man. hahaha

15:14
Rain blowing his nose.

15:17~22
[Rain] : I dry my face naturally for my skin health, instead of doing it with a towel.

15:25
Cleansing -> moisturizing the face by using a lotion.

15:29
[Rain] : Good!

15:33
Rain is truly a master of acting.

15:36
[Rain] : I’m asking you guys to hold a surprise birthday party for ‘Park Kyung-ryul’ today.

15:43
It’s been 8 years since ‘Park Kyung-ryul’ became a dancer for Rain.

15:45~16:08
[Rain] : Intentionally I’m gonna pick a fight with ‘Park’, complaining about his dance skills believed to be already obsolete. When it is all done in fun later, he may be more deeply affected by the moment.

16:10
10:00pm

16:14
Rain and the others use hidden cameras to surprise ‘Park’ on that night.

16:22
[Rain] : Come right in, please.

16:24
The atmosphere around the room is cold unusually.

16:31~17:04
[Rain] : It’s just that… I’m very discontented with our present situation where some of you guys seldom do their best during the performance. You have simply become far too slack I’m sorry to say.

17:08~16
[Rain] : I think we don’t agree in tone as we used to. I really don’t feel like working with you guys anymore in such a condition.

17:19
‘Park’ never realizes that he is being had.

17:25
[Rain] : Cut it out! [dumping his water bottle unceremoniously on the floor]

17:27
‘Park’ being startled.

17:34
‘Soo-bong’, one of the dancers, is putting his heart and soul into acting.

17:37
The hidden camera event is reaching the most interesting part.

17:40
Meanwhile, the others get ready for the birthday party for him.

17:50
[Rain] : ‘Soo-bong’, ‘Kyung-ryl’! Why don’t you come inside for a while?

17:54
What is it now?

17:59
They see the room light is off.

18:06
[Rain] : Happy birthday to you~ Happy birthday to you~

18:20
The day is ‘Park’s birthday.

18:25
You are rising to the bait, ‘Park’.

18:29
Hahahahahaha!!

18:38
Don’t cry, please!

18:45
A surprise event for the dancer Rain has known for 8 years.

18:52
[Rain] : Please speak the truth that you were so nervous! [laughs]

18:57~19:00
Dancers : ‘Park’ showed up with a disappointed look on his face. [laughs]
The expression on his face was really awkward. [laughs]

19:04
[Park Kyung-ryl] : Actually, I identified with what Rain was saying. [laughs]

19:11
[Rain] : Happy Birthday!

19:17
‘Park Kyung-ryl’ has a soft heart, contrary to the tough looks.

19:22
Rain and the others making do with ramen for dinner despite his birthday.

19:27
Rain trying to kid ‘Park’ again.

19:29
[Rain] : I think ‘Park’ is feeling very left out today.

19:31
‘Park’ seems to be out of sorts.

19:36
Rain shopping at a supermarket for the surprise party.

19:39~47
[Rain] : It’s been 8 years since I worked with ‘Park’.
Everyone, including him, is indispensable to me.

19:49
They are doing their utmost to prepare special food for the birthday party.

19:56
[Rain] : I was a good actor, right?

19:59
[Soo-bong] : Your acting was definitely natural. (laughs)

20:02
[Rain] : Happy Birthday!

20:14
[Park Kyung-ryul] : I’m sure Rain will do a wonderful job again, like himself.

20:15~21
[‘Gyu-sang‘, who has been working with Rain for 8 years since he knew Rain when he was Rain’s senior in the same junior high school.]
: Rain is always nice to his seniors. I think he was lonely much of the time
because he was really far from home. We’re happy with him.

20:22~26
[‘Soo-bong’, who has been working with Rain for 5 years. loves a tan]
: I think we should make an effort more to have a more fantastic performance.

20:30
[Gyu-sang] : Ah, there is a camera here!

20:32
Rain letting them know where the cameras are.

20:40
[Gyu-sang] : They are placed like this because of ‘Park’.

20:43
[Park Kyung-ryul] : Luckily, I think I had a very good seat.

20:44
[Gyu-sang] : I am very envious of Park who is really receiving good treatment
from world star Rain to mark his birthday.

20:52
Rain goes back to his own personality as ‘Jung Ji-hoon’.

20:56
The early morning on the 18th of November 2013.

[Rain’s manager] : Jihoony hyung (Rain), let me turn on the light.

21:30

21:44
[Rain] : Please, get me some water.

21:43
[Rain] : Have you ordered breakfast?
Rain wanting food as soon as he wakes up.

21:47
[Manager] : I’m trying ordering it. Can I order the same food as last time?
pancake, etc.

21:52
[Rain] : Ok.

21:55
[Manager] : How about a cup of coffee?

21:56
[Rain] : I have no choice.

22:00
Manager ordering food in English.

22:05
[Rain] : It’s a very nice view. [gazing out the window]

22:06
It’s uncomfortable for us to hear the manager’s exaggerative English pronunciation.

22:13
[Rain] : Why are you rolling your r’s? (to the manager)

22:22
Rain ordering food in Japanese.

22:43~48[Manager] : Caesar salad, please.
[Rain] : What did you say?
[Manager] : Caesar salad.
[Rain] : How dare you order what you want. [laughs)

22:49~53
[Rain] : Can I order Caesar salad, please?
Rain doing manager’s favor with pleasure.

23:02
[Rain] : Your words weren’t articulate, so he couldn’t understand what you said.
[to manager]

23:06
[Rain] : It’s time to get ready for the concert, let’s go.

23:24
At a health club inside the hotel after breakfast.

23:18
[Rain] : Look at this. Truly, it is amazing! What is in it?

23:20~25
[Rain]: I don’t like to do exercise. I really hate doing exercise.
It’s a bitter pill to swallow, but I’ll try.

23:30
Rain stays physically fit anywhere, at any time.

23:40
Let me tell you, Rain’s gorgeous figure has not been made in one day.

23:50
[Rain] : He is my amazing security team.

23:59
[Rain] : Phew..

24:02
Rain’s character may be warped if he keeps exercising.

24:05
[Rain]: Now I should stop doing exercise.

24:10~15
[Rain] : I hope I can use revolutionary drugs that may help me lose weight and get in shape without doing any exercise.

24:24
[Rain] : Rain begins preparing himself for his concert in earnest.

24:41
Fans have been looking forward to seeing Rain’s concert..

24:49
Rain finally appears on the stage.

25:06~21
[Rain] : Do you enjoy my performance?
[Fans] : Yeah!
[Rain] : Thank you.

25:15
The concert gives him a meaningful opportunity to communicate and get closer to his fans.

25:18
Rain shows an astonishing performance, ensuring applause and a hearty cheer from his fans.

25:24
The rainy night time grows longer in Fukuoka.

25:29
On the late afternoon of November 19, 2013.

25:32
Rain goes shopping for his costume concept for his new album.

25:42
[Park Hye-jung, who is a stylist in charge of Rain’s costume. She treats him as an ordinary person]

25:52~26:02
[Rain]: ‘Park Hye-jung’ and I have been friends for 10 years. She always treats me as a friend even though I behave rudely sometimes. Right?
[Park Hye-jung] : Yes, you’re right. [with a bad grace]

26:05
[Rain] : We should identify a strong costume concept for my 6th album.

26:10
[Rain] : We should look for a concept that can make me look sexier without exposing my body.

26:15
[Rain] : If there is a reversal in concept, so much the better.

26:19~26:25
[Rain] : Under such a concept, I can look sexier, more cute, and more romantic on the stage.

26:24~28
[Rain] : If we go around shopping parades hunting for items, we can find what we want.

26:30[Rain] : Manager, what kind of clothes do you think I should wear?

26:38
[Manager] : I think it might be better if you take your top off. [laughs]

26:42
[Manager] : Maybe that’s why you currently concentrate on giving your upper body a workout. [laughs]

26:42~51
[Rain] : The reason for doing so is to stay fit. You mistake me for the man who develops chest muscles. (laughs)

26:54~27:01
[Manager] : You told me that your strength isn’t what it used to be, so I think you do so to show that you are still physically strong.
[Rain] : It’s your logic. I have my own logic.

27:07~33
[Rain] : Are you hungry? [to Kwang-min)
[Gwang-min) : Yes, I haven’t eaten and feel very hungry. Let’s get something to eat.
[Rain] : I’m not a mother bird who feeds her young.
[Gwang-min] : My wallet’s fat, so I’ll foot the bill. How about getting something to eat at a high-class restaurant, the price of which is over 700 yen.
[Rain ]: Do you seriously mean what you say?
[Gwang-min] : Of course. A loaf of bread is better than the song of many birds.
[Rain ]: All right, if you say so.

27:34
[Rain] : We should take care of the costume concept first thing because it is the most important thing as of now.

27:41
At a shopping mall in Fukuoka’s Hakata.

27:49
Rain’s words and actions are different. He is already looking at the menu.
Rain confirms the location of the restaurant as soon as he arrives at the shopping mall.

27:52
[Rain]: Let’s find clothes to match the concept after taking a meal.

28:02
Smelling the foods makes them stop walking.

28:09
[Rain] : I have to lose my weight.
28:13
[Rain] : I am the man who has money in his wallet. [pulling out some money from his wallet to pay for something to eat.]

28:15
[Kwang-min) : I’ll get the bill. Please don’t do this.

28:21
The delicious-looking Dakoyaki.

28:28
[Gwang-min) : I’ve bought a lot of Dakoyaki. Let’s eat them together!

28:32
[Rain] : Hye-jung, try it.

28:37
[Rain] : Is it hot?

28:45~52
[Rain] : It is very very hot! How did you eat it?
[Gwang-min) : The owner told me that the food is really hot, so we should blow on it as we eat. I was going to mention it, but it slipped my mind.
[Rain] : You should have told me that!

28:55
[Rain] : My tongue is hurt.

28:59
Let’s eat first, whatever may happen afterwards.

29:07~
[Rain] : I like this food. [pointing to the menu]

29:15
Rain is looking for other menus even before chewing and swallowing the dakoyaki.

29:21~24
[Rain] ; Gwang-min, this is the restaurant specializing in omelet rice you were talking about.
[Gwang-min]: It’s probably delicious.

29:25
[PD] : I’ve never seen such an intense look on Rain’s face since I saw him shooting a film on the studio lot.

29:31
[Rain] : How should I say it? umm..I have a fetish about something to eat.

29:37~41
[Rain] : I’d like to recommend this food to you, Gwang-min.[pointing with his finger] How about going into the restaurant? We have to choose what to eat before going inside.

29:45
[Rain] : Decide quickly.

29:49
The food Rain decided on is udon [noodles], and the one Kwang-min decided on is omelet rice.

29:52
[Gwang-min]: I hope the food is nice.
I am worrying because Jihoony [Rain] may feel bad again if the food isn’t pleasant to his taste.

29:57
[Gwang-min]: Let’s go into the restaurant specializing in omelet rice over there.

30:01
They abide by Gwang-min’s decision.

30:05~10
[Rain] : Recently I’ve cooked food myself. I think I have the right touch about cooking.

30:11~16
[Gwang-min]: Rain’s Jjigae [stew] tasted so good.
[Rain] : Didn’t it?

30:17
What the two said has not been confirmed yet.

30:19~22
[Gwang-min]: Rain’s Kimchijjigae was much better than my mom’s. [laughs]
I was very surprised.

30:24
[Gwang-min]: That is why I was angry with her.[laughs]

30:29
They are treated with the food [omelet rice ] chosen after much consideration.

30:37
Rain reacts with a mysterious smile when he takes a bite of the food.

30:46~51
[Rain]: Is it delicious? hey?

Gwang-min pretends that he didn’t hear.

30:53~59
[Gwang-min] : There is a famous restaurant of the name of ‘Younhee’s Omelet Rice’ widely known for its delicious omelet rice in Daehakro, Seoul. [laughs]

30:01
Rain thinks to himself, “We should have ordered noddle”

30:03
They drive from Hakata to Tenjin.

31:06
Their objective in doing market research is to decide upon which costume concept they should choose for Rain’s new album.

31:13
Rain browses clothes in stores diligently.

31:18
[Rain] : How do I look? Not bad?

31:21~30
[Rain]: Vintage-style clothes are sold here. Street brand or something.
They only specialize in vintage clothes. I think you guys should see them.

31:32
The shop is overflowing with colorful clothes and a wide variety of props.

31:36
[Rain] : The concept for my new album this time is based on a singing beggar. [laughs]

31:42~50
[Kim Hye-jung] : These clothes need mending to apply them to the concept.

31:52~53
[Rain] : If you pick out the most probable ones, I’ll choose some good clothes among them. Then, let me try on those ones.

41:57
‘Kim Hye-jung’ is picking out some clothes for the concept.

32:04
[Rain] : The title track from my new album will be an exciting song with some visual effects.

32:06~15
[Kim Hye-jung] : The song is like upbeat sound of samulnori that heightens excitement for people. The vintage concept is so good.

32:19
The concept seems to be open to the public beforehand [or it is not]

32:22~25
[Rain] : It seems to me that it is not.
[Kim Hye-jung] : Why?

32:32
[Rain] : This is not what I asked for, I’m afraid.

32:46~50
[Kim Hye-jung] : You look great.
[Rain] : What?

[Kim Hye-jung] : Don’t you think?
[Rain] : You certainly are a poor judge of value.

32:55~33:00
[Kim Hye-jung] : You can think like that, but I like clothes of this style.
[Rain] : Alright, Okay.

33:03~06
[Seon-hwa] : So they are not yet finalized, are they?
It is only to get a sense of what he might look like.

33:10~15
[Rain] : They seem about right to me, but they don’t have one in my size.
I like them a lot. That’s what I’d hoped for, and it feels good to look like a beggar. [laughs]

33:25
Is Rain looking to find a gift for his sister?

33:27~34
[Rain] : Hey, just try it on for size. [to Kim Hye-jung]
[Kim Hye-jung] : I have no idea why he does it.

33:39~48
[Rain] : You look good. I want you to have it. It is a birthday gift from me.
[Kim Hye-jung] : Do you really think I look nice in it?
[Rain] : I’ll say. Try out the clothes in front of the mirror.

33:50
She is pleased with his gift.

33:53~56
[Rain] : I’m sorry that I missed her birthday. Now I’ve come to give her a present.

34:00
There is one man posing in front of a mirror in his new clothes.

34:03
[Gwang-min] : Maybe Jihoony will buy this one to me.

34:08
[Gwang-min] : This one appeals to me.

34:16
[Gwang-min] : How is this one? [to Rain]

34:18
[Rain] : Put it back where you found it [laughs]

34:25
[Gwang-min] : The game is up. [laughs]

34:29~32
[Rain] : This outfit seems too thin. [touching what Gwang-min wearing]
He needs clothes that are wearable for the midwinter.

34:35
[Gwang-min] : I can wear many layers of clothing. [laughs]

34:09
Gwang-min is still anticipating being able to convince Rain.

34:40~43
[Gwang-min] : Do you want me to put it back where I found it?
[Rain] : Yes. [laughs] Tact is never his strength.

34:46
[Rain] : Although he knows about the situation where we are busy with work..

34:56~35:04
[Gwang-min] : I think I’ll be back tomorrow and persuade to change his mind again. This is what I want. Good-bye. [kissing the clothes goodbye]

35:06
[Gwang-min] : See you tomorrow. (to the clothes)

35:17
Rain is being taken by the camera.

35:18
Rain and his staffs travel from Fukuoka to Osaka by Shinkansen.

35:20
[Rain] : I wan to travel by train at some future day.

35:27~30
[Rain] : Travel by train is more convenient than others when I have a concert tour.

35:31~37
[Rain] : Are you taking a picture of me? [ to the manager]
[Manager] : No, I’m not.
[Rain] : Please don’t dare!
[Manager] : I had my picture taken by myself.
[Rain] : Oh, you did?

35:41
[Rain] : You do look a sight! [watching him having his picture taken by himself] [laughs]

35:45~50
[Gwang-min] : You look tired, I think. Let’s get to sleep. [to Rain]

They were very tired with their hard works, so they were able to go to rest easily.

35:55
Rain falls again.

36:00
Osaka in Japan.

36:05
The second day of his concert tour : on November 22, 2013.

36:08
Rain clears his throat before the performance.

25:13~21
[Kim Hye-jung] : There is a report about your performance to be presented at MAMA and new album on the newspaper. [to Rain]
[Rain] : That’s what you were saying?

36:25
[Rain] : No one can keep a secret. [Cloud USA can, I’m here to tell you. LOL! S. ^@@^]

36:29~33
[Rain] : Originally I was going to let preparations for MAMA be made under a cloak of secrecy.

36:35
Japanese fans pouring into the concert hall to see Rain’s performances.

36:40
Fans filling up the concert hall.

36:46
Rain has a perfect figure that makes people happy.

36:57~37:07
[Rain] : Today is the 6th day of the tour. Please reserve yourself for later, and be careful not to hurt yourself! Let us all do our best again today. One two  three, fighting!

37:11
They are quite ready now.

37:23
[Rain] : Everyone, how have you been? Long time no see.

37:32
Rain having a fantastic performance for his fans who have been waiting for him for a long time.

37:43
Rain stirs the fans to feel as one by performing passionately on the stage.

37:57
The hall is a seething cauldron of emotion.

38:04
The shows are all finished in Osaka.

38:07
[Rain] : I’m exhausted. Please don’t touch me for 5 minutes.

38:13
[Rain] : In my 30s, I find I’ve lost some of my stamina. I get more tired day by day.

38:19
[Rain] : Hey. Gwang-pal [Gwang-min], suddenly I feel weak as a kitten.

38:22~27
[Gwang-min]: You were seen performing harder on the bigger stage than on yesterday’s one. No wonder you have been exhausted.

38:28
[Rain] : The very thought of performing at MAMA makes me sick.

38:37
[Gwang-min]: If you keep feeling so anxious, you cannot sleep even at night. [to Rain]

38:40
[Rain] : I think I am unable to sleep because I have to form an idea of the main plot for my performance at MAMA scheduled for tomorrow.

38:43
[Rain] : Now I am out of practice.

38:43~48
[Gwang-min]: Haven’t you got the plan of the stage management in your mind beforehand?
[Rain] : I had no time to prepare. I have to cram for it.

38:51
Kansai International Airport at 1:00am on November 22, 2013.

38:57
Rain leaving for Hong Kong right after finishing his concert.

39:02
His fans came to see him off at the airport late at night.

39:12
[Fans]: Fighting!

39:23
[Dancer] : I think you’ve been storing a lot of music in your mobile entirely on your own. [to Rain]

39:98
Suddenly, dancers are taking pictures of something.

39:31
Rain’s body is swaying in time with the music.

39:33
[Rain] : Nobody has heard the music but us.

39:47
That’s the Rain Effect!

39:57~59
[Rain]: I’m trying to close our meeting quickly. Please gather here!

40:02~15
[Rain] : I’ll go up by using wires during the performance [looking at the monitor sent from the MAMA producers]
We have no time to practice, but we have the ability to give such a performance extemporaneously.

40:20~44
[Rain] : Our first priority is to remain cool, but something is still wanting.
I hope you guys can come up with a better idea than this. After concluding the prepared motion, we’ll be finished for the day.

40:48
Finally, they are departing for Hong Kong.

40:58
Dancers go to rest easily, but Rain can’t sleep because of things facing him along with his manager.

41:04
Rain working fastidiously.

41:09
Rain is really busy working on coming up with a concept for the MAMA performance all night. He is a real workaholic.

41:15
They arrived in Hong Kong at 4:30am on November 22, 2013.

41:17~41:30
[Rain] : Rain is saying to his manager in Chinese, “Ni Shipaloma!” [laughs]
[Mamager] : Haha. Weird pronunciation!
[Rain] : “Ni Shipaloma” means “Have you had a meal?” in Chinese. [Phonetically, it means “Damn you” in Korean]

41:32
[Rain] : It seems odd to you?
[Mamager] : Jihoony hyung [Rain], “Ni Shipaloma!” [laughs]

41:42
[Rain] : Don’t say that word in Chinese again. [laughs]

41:51
Manager’s nose is all stuffed up.

41:53
[Rain] : Now I have a nasal decongestant spray. Do you want me to give it to you?
[Manager] : No, thank you. I can stand this much pain.

41:56~59
[Manager] : I like it as it is now.
[Rain] : Really? Are you a pervert? [laughs]

42:02
It is raining without a break in Hong Kong.

42:03
[Manager] : It’s raining again. [laughs]

42:07
Wherever he goes, Rain brings rain to the region.

42:12
Rain who has been up all night, arrives at the MAMA venue.

42:23
At the MAMA rehearsal, about 10 hours before the event.

42:28
[Producer ‘Han Dong-cheol’] : Keeping dangling on the wires is not such an easy undertaking. It may be extremely dangerous.

42:36~41
[Rain]: Regardless of how hard the work may be, I’ll do it.

42:44
But there are potential problems.

42:48
Even if it’s the last thing, Rain wants to do it.

42:52
Rain checking all the equipment.

42:59
[Rain] : Aren’t you able to carry on the work faster?

43:03
The wire speed is much slower than he thought.

43:11
[Rain]; I think I have to dangle on the wires alone to lighten them.

43:15
[Producer] : I’ll try making things work.

43:23~37
[Rain] : Let me give it a try. Clearly, there has to be a surprising scene while I dangle on the wires.

43:40
Rain and the producers understood how dangerous that was, after he tried it himself.

43:51
Rain is torn.

44:02~31
[Rain] : I dangle on the wires with my legs apart and doesn’t look good.
Besides, the disadvantages of the plan far outweighs the advantages in many ways.
There is no choice but to abandon this plan. I’ll give a different performance as a substitute for it.

44:32
[Rain] : I know you guys are too tired, but we have to do our best to the very end. (to dancers)

44:38
Rain begins rehearsing according to the changed choreography.

44:43
[Rain] : One moment, please.

44:45
[Rain]: When you guys appear on the stage, I want you to walk stylishly. (to dancers)

44:52
[Rain] : I’d like you to focus on that.

44:59
They are busy practicing according to the quickly changed choreography.

45:08
They go through a final camera rehearsal.

45:25
Rain and dancers work in perfect harmony.

45:34
[Rain] : I would like to thank everyone.

45:39
Rain is gratified with the result.

45:43
Rain and dancers leave for their hotel to prepare for the performance.

45:51
[Rain] : I am to perform without any wire. [to ‘Park Yong-bok’, a director of Cube Entertainment]

45:54~58
[Park Yong-bok] : Your performance at the rehearsal was great.
[Rain] : I’ll do good work tomorrow. Ah! I’m to do today, not tomorrow.[laughs]

46:05~15
[Rain] : It’s incredible that they do such things by working through the night.
Korean people really have guts! I only slept for about 2 hours.

46:17
[Rain] : Let’s not keep in touch with each other for about 5-6 hours. [laughs]

46:27
[Park Yong-bok] : Alright. Ok.

46:30~31
[Rain] : And, you should turn off your phone. [laughs]
[Park Yong-bok] : I can’t do that. [laughs]

46:34
2 hours before MAMA.

46:37
MAMA is a big festival for musicians.

46:42
1 hour before MAMA

46:47
Rain is really glad to see singers ‘Lee Hyo-ri’ and ‘Lee Ha-neul’ again after all these years.

46:50
[Rain] : It’s been ages! What have you been up to?

46:55
[Lee Ha-neul] : Adultery! Adultery! [laughs][He meant it for a joke]
[Rain and ‘Lee Hyo-ri’ put their arms around each other and hug / Not long after ‘Lee Hyo-ri’ was married]

46:58
[Lee Hyo-ri’] : Don’t mess with me, Jihoon [Rain]. [suddenly being strong for Lee Ha-neul] [laughs]

47:02
[Lee Ha-neul] : You two’s actions can be easily misunderstood. [laughs]
[Rain] : I know what you mean.[laughs]

47:05
[Lee Ha-neul] : Can I intrude myself into the conversation of the two top stars? [laughs]
[Rain] : Please, come on.

47:07
The two do not beat around the bush, embarrassing Rain.
