Screen Shot 2014-01-22 at 9.04.05 PMThe third installment of How To Avoid The Sun on Inkigayo’s November 30, 2003 broadcast had all the intensity of the first two. And, it saw Rain beating up on all the competition.

Yes, at this time, the show was about 7 performers throwing their songs into the ring, watching them battle it out, and seeing which one would emerge victorious. For Rain, it was a knockout!

Clearly, yes, there were elements of performance #1 and performance #2 weaved into this third and final performance of the song on Inkigayo. I was hard-pressed to find a copy of this one. It was buried deep within a playlist. It is not the clearest copy, but it is still viewable. In fact, I think it is safe to say that anything Rain-related is viewable, acceptable, and welcomed no matter what the condition.  So long as it is Rain, it is all good!

In performance #3, there is a little interplay with the sunglasses (as always). And some seductive jacket-off-the-shoulders moments (I for one love to see those fine broad shoulders of his).

Raw, emotion-filled vocals.

The ever-present connect with crowd and camera.

But… he left out the rap! Yes, he sure did. I don’t know if it was a network time constraint issue or just a decision he made – whatever the case, it’s just not there.

Still, it is nice to see him win, accept his award, and speak. Always so gracious and adorable! ♥
