Yeah, me neither.  When he returned to the Inkigayo stage with It’s Raining for a second week on November 7, 2004, he tore into the opening with a vengeance. His moves are always crisp and tight, but here he was simply razor-sharp.

What week #2 had a little more of than week #1 was the cute factor. There was lots of cute going on here.  And it was clearly vying for position over badass. Then there was sexy.  Throw in some more cute. Three cups more badass.  Another dash of sexy. Level it off with cute. Mix it all together and that is your recipe for Rain! He really has perfected that recipe, hasn’t he?

It’s Raining has some truly vigorous choreography and the Inkigayo stage received 4 visits of it in late 2004 alone.  Ah-mazing!

I think 2004 could easily rate as an iconic year for the young star and It’s Raining, one of his true iconic songs. It never gets old and is without question a fan favorite.
