Oh, no he didn’t take us all back to FanClub days with his “Tubthumping” dance, LOL! Aw, so cute. Hey, BbaekGa! They were sure glad to see you, especially with food.

So, the director yelled “Cut!” and they just kept on jamming. I know that’s right.

God help you if one of those towels you put over the cameras in the bathrooms happens to fall one day at a most inopportune time, JiHoon. You’re going to be scrambling trying to do some post-production edits with a quickness. ROFL! 😛

Dear Mama… ㅜ_ㅜ

When a translation of this episode becomes available, we’ll bring that to you here. Thanks, all. ^@@^

0:02

The music video “La Song” set.

 

0:03

[Rain] : I’d rather stay here.

 

0:07

They break leg and do their best, promising to have a wonderful time having supper after completing filming.

 

0:11

[Rain] : We’re gonna drink 10 bottles of soju [an alcoholic drink] tonight?

[Song Jae-hong] : Sure [laughs]

 

0:12

Meanwhile, staffs are trying to ask people living nearby for help in a situation where it’s snowing so hard they can’t move to another place.

 

0:18

[Sang-hyun, who is Rain’s manager] : Is there a hotel in Gwangtan-myeon?

 

0:20

But, it is not easy to look for a hotel.

 

0:23

In the cold, freezing weather, they keep filming the music videos.

 

0:23

As night advances, it is getting colder and colder.

 

0:37

‘Song Jae-hong’ is having fun and laughing as if he has completely taken leave of his senses.

 

0:40

[Song Jae-hong ]: It’s so cold that I think that I’m going to loose my mind. [laughs]

 

0:43

Staffs are still looking for a hotel.

 

0:45

[Director Choi] : They say there are rooms for 8 available for tonight.

 

0:51

The music video set at the time.

 

0:55

Everyone is still freezing.

 

1:00

Rain also cannot help shivering in the cold.

 

1:05

Filming the music videos is almost reaching the end.

 

1:10

Now Rain has to drag a female dancer outside jauntily, as a scene from the music video.

 

1:15

But, Rain gently does it as if he is presented as very shy.

 

1:19~20

[Rain] : We were filmed?

[Director] : Yes, but it was a little flat.

 

1:24

Rain sweeps a female dancer up into his arms. [laughs]

 

 

1:34

[Director] : That’s a pretty great one.

 

1:38

Everything has gone off all right.

 

1:41~45

[Rain] : I’m exhausted! We haven’t slept for 7 days.

 

1:48

[Rain] : Thanks for your work, and take it easy.

 

1:51

That night.

 

1:56

[Rain] : Let’s drink the cup that cheers! Thank you for your hard work.

 

1:58

Rain and his co-workers are having a wonderful time together, having a drink.

 

2:02~06

[Rain] : I did not feel very cold in the car ‘Sang-hyun’ was driving in the morning. But, it suddenly turned very cold.

 

2:08~2:14

[Rain] : I asked ‘Sang-hyun’ to turn on the heater to take the chill off the car, but my body got hot again. He had to flick the switch on and off because of me. In the meantime, it was snowing in large flakes.

 

2:15~20

[Rain] : I thought, “We are in big trouble now. We’re supposed to film those things outside today”.

 

2:21~26

[Rain] : I couldn’t help worrying about what would happen in the cold because we were due to film the music videos as if we were Brazil’s vibrant street.

 

2:27

[Kyung-ryul] : Neither could we.

 

2:31~36

[Kyu-sang] : Even so, I think we were so cool today. It was absolutely picturesque.

 

2:37

Then, Rain’s Smart phone is blaring out some music.

 

2:41

[Kyu-sang] : It’s the perfect mood to dance!

 

2:44

The atmosphere is heated in a second.

 

2:49

[Rain]: I’m sorry. This is my favorite song.

 

2:54

Continuing, they hear a true class worthy of the highest praise from Rain’s Smart phone..

 

2:56

Korean singer ‘Lee Mi-ja’s song ‘A woman’s Life’, which was a moment in time, plays in the background.

 

3:01~2

[Rain] : Do you know who she is?

[Dancers] : ‘Shim Su-bong’!

 

3:05

[Rain] : It’s ‘Lee Mi-ja’.

 

3:07

[Rain] : It was my late mother’s favorite song.

 

3:11~15

[Rain] : Its title is ‘A woman’s Life’, it means a woman’s weary life.

 

3:19

Now singer ‘Lee Ju-won’s song ‘For Our Precious Love’ plays.

 

3:22

[Rain] : Do you know this song? [to female dancers]

 

3:25

[Rain]: Don’t you know it? [Then, Rain feels a generation gap]

 

3:29

[Rain] : It’s my father’s favorite song.

 

3:31~53

[Rain] : When I gave a CD of the song [edited with a double deck by me] to my father for his birthday, he wanted a real one, not a copy. [laughs] However, he was very pleased at my present.

 

3:55~57

[Mi-hyun] : I have a special song I want to hear.

[Rain] : What is it?

[Mi-hyun] : But, you may not find it on the music sites.

[Rain] : What is it?

[Mi-hyun] : Fan Club! [laughs]

 

4:06

[Rain] : Can I do a knee kick toward a woman for the first time? [laughs]

 

4:09~13

Fan Club was an idol boy group which made a meteoric rise but went unnoticed, and Rain was one of its members when he debuted as a singer. At that time he was 16 years old.

 

4:14

[Seong-tack] : The choreography of ‘Fan Club’s song ‘Fan Club’ is this. [holding a demonstration]

 

4:17

The choreography is a never-to-be-forgotten one that is a sad memory for Rain.

 

4:20

[Seong-tack] : I can’t believe that I’m still remembering the choreography.

 

4:24

They keep hearing old songs.

 

4:29

Now Rain is absorbed in dancing, sitting with his legs crossed. [laughs]

 

4:32

Singer ‘Kim Min-kyo’s song ‘The Final Game’ is playing.

 

4:36~41

‘Kyu-sang’ perfectly reproduces the choreography of ‘The Final Game’ [laughs] and then, he even pretends to make a slam dunk. [laughs]

 

4:45

Kyu-sang sets the table in a roar.

 

4:48

[Rain] : This song is one of my favorites.

 

4:53

[Seong-tack] : G.O.D.’s song ‘Road’? I love it, too.

 

4:57~5:07

[Seong-tack] : JYP showed off his trainee “Rain” on Tae-woo’s birthday, saying as, “I’ve picked out a young talent just like myself”.

 

5:10

[Rain] : Frankly, I should tell you that I am much more handsome than JYP. [laughs]

 

5:14~19

[Rain] : As for me, I think I’m better looking than JYP truly. [laughs]

 

5:21~26

[Seong-tack] : JYP added at that time, “Rain looks a lot like me as if he is like my other self.”

 

5:27

[Seong-tack] : So, I wondered, “Who the hell is he?’ [laughs]

 

5:33~44

[Rain]: When I attended Anyang High School of Art, somebody from an agency for many big stars urged me to have an audition.

 

5:45~54

[Rain]: When I was asked to dance, sing, rap, etc. at the audition, Hong Seung-seong, the president of JYP Entertainment at that time, told me, “You are of no avail.” [laughs]

 

5:59

[Rain]: Hong said, “You are too tall to be a singer.”

 

6:09

[Rain] : Hong added, “Hey, get eyelid surgery!” [laughs]

 

6:11~25

[Rain] : When I met a plastic surgeon, he told me, “Your face is not proper to have plastic surgery.” He bitterly opposed my getting plastic surgery.

 

6:27~32

[Rain] : Soon after, I let ‘Hong’ know about it, taking doctor’s note to him. Hong asked me to take the note to JYP, sighing deeply at the thought. [laughs]

 

6:33

The party is really getting into full swing while Rain is having a long chat with them.

 

6:36~38

[Jae-hong] : The concert tour in Japan was the hardest thing I had ever had to do.

 

6:44

[Dancers] : We don’t have as much strength as we used to.

 

6:42~55

[Rain] : I’ve been a lot busier than most of you. Between my preparations for my comeback to the music scene and acting career, I’ve barely been able to take a breath. I’ve become aware of my physical limitation after the hard work.

 

6:57~09

[Seong-tack] : I think that you’ve never had such a trying time in your life as you’ve been awfully tied up recently. [to Rain]

 

7:11~15

[Rain] : As you know, I don’t lose my composure even in the most difficult situation, but I’m really having a tough time. This experience teaches me that my power is limited.

 

7:17~33

[Rain] : But, this kind of work is second nature to me mentally because I enjoy working with you guys, because I enjoy singing and dancing, etc, and because the task itself is fun.

 

7:34~43

[Rain] : While I’m working, I think I’ve searched my identity.

 

7:45

This is the first stage performance he’s had in many years.

 

7:49

It is time to find his identity even though he is under pressure for his first performance in years.

 

7:53

Rain self-examines himself, thinking of this work as his opportunity to advance.

 

7:58~8:02

[Rain] : Thank you for the hard work, and we can get all this work done tomorrow afternoon. I’d like you to do your best to the very end. One, two. three!

 

8:04

The first night of the work grows darker.

 

08:09

Day 2 : The ‘La Song’ music video set.

 

8:13

Rain heads for the set, wearing thick clothes to withstand the cold weather.

 

8:16

[Rain] : So cold!

 

8:18

[Rain] : Aren’t you cold? [to the camera crew]

 

8:21

[Rain] : It is said that the temperature is minus 11 degrees today.

 

8:25

On the second day, the director explains how the filming works.

 

8:33

Rain and his dancers start dancing with gusto.

 

8:38

Rain and his dancers are eager to make the most of themselves, bearing the cold.

 

8:43

They are adept at dancing even in the cold.

 

8:50

The director gives Rain and his dancers the OK sign just once.

 

8:55

Then, a mysterious guy visits the music video site.

 

9:03

Who is the guy who exchanges warm greetings with them?

 

9:06

It’s Bbaekga who makes a surprise visit to Rain.

 

9:10

Bbaekga bought fried chickens for 20 people and came to the place for Rain working hard.

 

9:13

[Rain] : We gratefully receive!

[Bbaekga] : Please help yourselves!

 

9:21

[Rain] : Please tell me how you are getting along. [to Bbaekga]

 

9:23

[Bbaekga]: It’s been really hectic at work, but I do a slapdash job.

 

9:27

[Kyu-sang] : You must not cut corners on the air. [to Bbaekga]

 

9:29

[Bbaekga]: I don’t mean it! [being flustered]

 

9:31

The situation embarrasses Bbaekga. [laughs]

 

9:33

[Kyu-sang] : How could you be sloppy on Mnet TV? [to Bbaekga][laughs]

 

9:37

[Staff] : Bbaekga is the only entertainer friend that Rain has, right?

 

9:41

[Bbaekga]: Me too. Rain is the only entertainer friend that I have. [laughs]

 

9:43

[Rain] : I wonder whether Bbaekga is eligible for an entertainer. [laughs]

 

9:45

[Bbaekga]: I do two things: run a restaurant and am active as a singer.

 

9:48

They are laughing a lot and having a really good time.

 

9:53

[Director Choi] : I’m sorry, but it’s about time to work again.

 

9:58

Rain has to continue working.

 

10:02

[Bbaekga]: May I see the performance?

 

10:05

Bbaekga is looking forward to seeing Rain’s performance.

 

10:13

Rain has to actually deliver a performance in the scene.

 

10:26

[Bbaekga]: It’s better than expected. Ji-hoon[Rain], it’s better for you to be an actor than to be a singer. [laughs]

 

10:29

[Rain] : I prefer being an actor.

 

10:33

[Bbaekga]: I’m in full agreement with you.

 

10:36

[Rain] : ‘Kyu-sang’ hyung, what did you think about my acting?

[Kyu-sang] : You have to find your way into acting. [laughs]

 

10:43

They appreciate Rain’s powerful and perfect dance routines.

 

10:48

The festive mood of the site is heightening.

 

10:56

As everyone is dancing passionately, there is electricity in the air at the place.

 

11:00

Even though the director shouts “Cut!”, they are still dancing.

 

11:09

They completely fall into a trance without regard to “Cut”.

 

11:12

The director is just sitting there not knowing what to do.

 

11:14

Rain is still walking on air.

 

11:16

[The director] : Cut!!!!

 

11:19

This job is as good as done. It’ll just take another second.

 

11:21

[Rain] : As many of you know, this choreography is dead easy to follow.

 

11:28

Rain needs body language to express himself verbally to foreign extras.

 

11:36

[Rain] : We’ll give it a try.

 

11:40

They are rehearsing the performance.

 

11:46

Finally they are filming the last one of the music scene.

 

11:50

They enjoy the dance performance again to the fun music.

 

11:57

[The director] : OK! thank you for your hard work!

 

12:00

They have completed a short over night trip of 1 night and 2 days in the cold.

 

12:03

They are photographed as a group before breaking up.

—————————-

12:13

Rain has a health problem.

 

12:17

Cube Entertainment.

 

12:19

The staffs are working frantically on final arrangements for the release of Rain’s new album.

 

12:22

[Rain] : I have a terrible cold.

 

12:26

Rain has worked non-stop for months, at considerable cost to his health, while traveling back and forth between foreign countries and Korea.

 

12:28

Rain continues working even if he is sick.

 

12:33

[Rain] : Hyung, thank you for your hard work.

 

12:36

[Rain] : Everything will be okay.

 

12:38

[Rain] : Ahhh…I’m exhausted!

 

12:45~54

[Sang-hyun, who is Rain’s manger] : While Rain continues working, his body moves into the exhaustion stage, it has made him get sick. It is now utterly out of his control.

 

12:56

A few days later – December 26, 2013.

 

13:00

Rain is moving to a place to follow schedules even before he gets over his illness, getting in the car.

 

13:02~07

[Rain] : I had been in bed with a severe attack of flu.

 

13:10~15

[Rain] : Since the MAMA event, I’ve fallen ill, I think. I felt achy all over my body, getting a chill.

 

13:18~25

[Rain] : Fortunately, the difficult scenes from the film were all finished before I got sick. But, as soon as the tension was gone, I was overcome by fatigue and got sick.

 

13:28

[Rain] : I think I simply overworked my body.

 

13:29~40

[Rain] : Now I’m doing nicely. There does not seem to me to be any great problem in being interviewed with news reporters even though I’m still running a fever.

 

13:42

With news reporters and members of the press in attendance, Rain’s new album is about to premiere somewhere in Seoul.

 

13:44

Rain monitors the music video to ‘30 Sexy’ from his new album as soon as he arrives at the scene.

 

13:48

[Rain] : Can you turn the volume up a little?

 

13:52

Rain checks the volume again.

 

13:56

Rain gives the mechanical engineers a few more details.

 

14:09

Rain even pays attention to the details of La Song, one of the double tracks from his album.

 

14:17~32

[Rain] : I’ll be answering questions from the media today. But, on the other hand, my new album is to premiere where news reporters and popular music makers attend before the album is open to the public, as if a movie is previewed.

 

14:34

Countless reporters and members of the press gather to listen to his album, with a feeling of expectancy.

 

14:39

The music premiere begins in earnest.

 

14:48

They are watching the music video to ‘30 Sexy’ seriously.

 

14:57

They are busy writing articles, trying to review the video objectively.

 

15:02

The atmosphere in the hall is more tense than ever.

 

15:09

There’s no knowing how they’ll react.

 

15:13

[Reporter A] : Please say a few words about your comeback to the music scene after an absence of years.

 

15:16~34

[Rain] : I think I worked really hard. I worked harder than I ever had, monitering other singers’ albums. But, frankly, I’m really tense now.

 

15:36

[Reporter B] : What’s next for you?

 

15:40~48

[Rain] : Actually, I’m just grateful to be here. I am filled with gratitude, not only that I’ve been a dance music singer for ten years, but also I am afforded the chance to make it here.

 

15:52~03

[Rain] : I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future, so I try to start work with a renewed mind by remembering when I first began, based on my dancing and singing skills.

 

16:04

[Rain] : My goal is to show what is Rain to the public.

 

16:09

[Reporter A ] : It has been a very eventful year for you. With the year coming to a close, please reflect on the past year of your life.

 

16:13

[Rain] : Literally, I have encountered one difficulty over the past year. [laughs]

 

16:19~23

[Rain] : I’ve been able to grow up one more time, trying to return to my original intentions.

 

16:26~41

[Kyunghyang newspaper reporter ‘Kang Su-jin] : Rain has no equal as a solo performer, and his comeback to the music scene means that it is a time of rebirth and reappearance in the music industry.

 

16:42~56

[Yonhap newspaper reporter ‘Kee Eun-jung’] : 30Sexy, one of the title tracks from Rain’s latest CD, is a sexy song which shows off his sexy performance, and La Song, which is the other one, is a more popular and Latin-flavored song which feels foreign. Rain brings out the best in himself and makes up for the weak to provide his fans with the best-quality album possible.

 

16:56~17:07

[Osen newspaper reporter ‘Lee Hye-rin’] : I think Rain has succeeded in enhancing the brand image “Rain” by using his musical talent not only as a singer but also as a composer.

 

17:10

Rain received an enthusiastic response from the reporters and members of the press at the premiere.

————————————————

17:16

Incheon International Airport on December 30, 2013.

 

17:18

Rain is about to leave the country to perform in Singapore at the end of the year.

 

17:21

Rain is not quite well.

 

17:26

However, he never forgets to sign autographs for fans who have been waiting for him in the cold.

 

17:38

He is boarding his flight as his fans see him off.

———————————–

17:42

2013 Last Day : Rain in Singapore.

 

17:46

2013.12.31~2014.01.01

K-pop concert in Singapore.

 

17:53

There are surveillance cameras which are operational 24 hours a day all around the room.

 

17:57

[Sang-hyun] : It’s me. [knocking on the door.]

 

18:04

Rain gets up late because he is in poor shape.

 

18:16

Rain is hard to get up early.

 

18:24

[Rain] : The camera strikes me as a jarring note now!

 

18:29

Rain wakes up this morning not feeling well because he still has a touch of a cold.

 

18:37

When Rain enters the bathroom, the camera welcomes him.

 

18:43~47

[Rain] : That’s going too far!

 

18:51

[Rain] : Oh, please!

 

18:55

Why are you nagging? [to Rain]

 

19:04

Sang-hyun brings a hair cap to Rain naturally.

 

19:07~10

[Rain] : You don’t have any common sense whatsoever! I’ll be taking a bath now.

 

19:14

Innocent Sang-hyun gets it from Rain.

 

19:16

[Rain] : Can you get out of the room?

 

19:22

Rain’s real features.

 

19:26

[Rain] : Don’t you think that’s a bit harsh? [with a forced smile]

 

19:36

[Rain] : While I’m taking a shower, the cameras must be covered with towels.

 

19:42

[Rain]: Ok, you can’t see anything.

 

19:50

[Rain] : Ok, good!

 

19:53

Rain is humming to himself while taking a shower.

 

19:57

Now he is taking a shower.

 

20:05

We can feel that he is sexily taking a shower even if the cameras are covered with towels.

 

20:15

After taking a shower, he is drying his hair, looking at the camera.

 

20:30

Rain finishes it up in 12 seconds. He tends to be rash at times.

 

20:36

[Rain] : Currently I’ve been getting a lot of hairs on my body since time unknown.

 

20:43

[Rain] : I can’t tell the reason. Am I shedding these days?

 

20:60

Rain arrives at the concert venue for his rehearsal.

 

21:01~19

[Rain] : I was supposed to hold a concert in Singapore, but the plan was on the shelf because of my military service. Now I’ve come to carry out the plan. It will be a concert like a party. I’d like the concert to be fun for the whole audience like I used to, breaking the mold because I don’t like things way it is.

 

21:21

Rain starts rehearsing intensively as the performance is around the corner.

 

21:26

Rain rehearses as if he really performs.

 

21:30

Rain checks the stage thoroughly for the perfect performance.

 

21:33~37

[Rain] : When the camera operators a fade-out of a scene on the stage, I’ll come out and perform ‘Love Song’.

 

21:40~45

Rain even checks the moving line of the choreography, mike, and the acoustics, etc. thoroughly while singing.

 

21:51

[Rain] : The acoustics are good.

 

21:53

[Rain] : See you little later. Thank you.

 

21:58

The pictures on Rain’s album jacket were released to his fans on December 31st.

 

22:05

[Rain] : I’ve received an enthusiastic response since the release of the pictures.

 

22:09~12

[Rain] : I’m so glad that my fans’ response to the pictures is better than I expected.

 

22:13~16

[Rain] : I think the only thing remaining for me to do now is to work hard.

 

22:17~34

[Rain] : Today is the day I post a music video teaser for the song “30 Sexy” on SNS. It’s been 4 years since I started SNS. This morning, I posted the teaser on SNS for the first time after an absence of 3 years. The reaction to the teaser is very good. I’m supposed to post a music video teaser for the song “La Song” on it at 3:00pm.

 

22:38

Rain heads downtown in Singapore to take a break after the rehearsal.

 

22:43

[Rain] : I have to set the alarm clock to 1:55 pm.

 

22:47

[Rain] : I have to post a music video teaser for the song “La Song” on SNS. [Jason, the CEO of Rain’s overseas agency, is sitting next Rain]

 

22:50~23:01

[Rain] : It’s natural that I should personally post the teasers on SNS in return for my fans love for me.

 

23:03

The river runs through the city of Singapore.

 

23:06

Rain enjoys the beautiful sight to the full.

[Rain] : Good!

 

23:14

Rain is enjoying a cup of coffee at an outdoor cafe with his co-workers.

 

23:17

Local fans ask Rain for his autograph.

 

23:35

Then, Rain exchanges messages with someone.

 

23:41~57

[Rain] : I exchanged messages with TVXQ’s Jae-joong:

 

Jae-joong : “Happy New Year!”
