Please enjoy this fan cam from 2005, Rain’s performance at the MFM4U Melon Concert.

With this being in January, just after New Year’s, it is bone-chilling cold during this outdoor event, so everyone is bundled up and layered up in an attempt to stay warm. Rain starts off with “It’s Raining” and then pauses for a stage interview. He finishes up with “I Do.”

Doggone SCARY moment: I don’t know why these concert techs weren’t more careful about not setting pyrotechnics to go off waaaaay over the top near the artist. This isn’t my first time seeing pyros startle the hell out of Rain, but this is my first time seeing this fan cam and it scared the frak out of me. When the “I Do” dance break started, the explosion at the edge of the stage was so massive that I jumped a mile. For a few seconds, I couldn’t even see Rain or his Crew. Sure enough, when the smoke and the sparks parted, Rain was disoriented, holding his face, and totally thrown off his pace. WTH, techies?!

I dare say it’s a good thing the weather was freezing and that he had all those clothes and that beanie and those sunglasses on. Can you imagine if he’d been hit in the eyes? The sound alone probably had his ears ringing like clap bells to where he had to fight to hear the music again. Of course, he recovered like a champ, but geez Louise, folks. Gah!

Heads should have rolled for that back stage.

Fabulous Ones I could recognize: Hongshi, and SungTak.

Killer pyros aside, I did enjoy this performance and I hope y’all do, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

* NOTE: On Youku, commercial ads are usually played before the video itself. Just give it a little patience, please. Thanks!^^

  1. Good grief, Stephe! I had never seen that. Looks like he may have actually gotten burned by the pyrotechnics. Wow.

    Terri :-}


  2. I couldn’t view YouKu too well, it kept breaking up in my viewing it.


    • Sorry about that, Peachi. Yeah, stuff from China can be temperamental. I couldn’t look at anything on Youku at all, all day Thursday… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ perhaps it will be better if you try later or tomorrow. The connection for me yesterday and today is excellent.
