An EPIC Blast from the past #226: TV’s got nothing on a good MKMF fan cam.

A7204571-203This fan cam by beloved SooRain proves it. Case closed!

Do enjoy this partial Return To Korea performance at the November 2008 MKMFs (now the MAMAs) from when Rain officially re-entered the limelight in his home country after completing his Ninja Assassin filming. He came on the stage “walking on water” down a high, slow-moving, 45-degree inclined slope, with a slender tether and harness the only things keeping him from plummeting all the way to the ground. (Lord!!)

“Rainism” was brand new, his hair was burgundy, and when it comes to “Only You,” this fan cam shows up close what the TV network tried to hide by only showing Rain from a distance—those Magic Hips and how well they moved during that song. LOL, sorry, Mnet, no cigar for you. 😉

(I suppose they were afraid TVs across Korea would spontaneously combust.)

I’m also including Mnet’s official video of Rain’s entire performance because as far as I’m concerned, this is his BEST “Rainism” television performance to date, and absolutely one of his and his Fabulous crew’s best multiple-song television stages ever. The whole thing, from start to finish, leaves no question as to why Rain was and still is the Magic Feet from Korea. His body is like a rubber band during every song.

And even when it seems like he’s going to run out of air, somehow, in Rain fashion, he powers through it and gets a second wind.

This performance dazzles.
