[series][clip] From Stephe’s desk: Rain (비) TV performances that made me wanna shout. (#1)


What: KBS Open Concert

Where: Seoul

When: 5/16/2010. Six years ago today! ^@@^

How many times it made me want to shout: 7

1) The stage lighting was spot on. From that first shot, he looked positively angelic, with some kind of aura about him.


2) This was during the time Rain was making a successful comeback with new mini-album Back To The Basic, and there was a while between the advertisement and the actual show, so by the time it aired, we were really ready to see it.

3) We got to see “Hip Song” done in “Love Song” attire. Something you don’t see. And that Atlanta bling ball cap.

4) The cameraman panned and got an awesome shot of the Hip Song grind from the side and back, something else you don’t see. Folks have always concentrated on getting the grind from the front, and don’t get me wrong, it’s great that way. BUT. It’s better from the side and back for so many reasons, one of which is that Rain’s assets are even more apparent that way. Might as well tell the truth. *boom, pop, boom, pop* 😉

5) His hair was showing out and giving me all kinds of Life.

6) Isn’t that dark shirt luscious against his skin? We were definitely at the Gun Show.

7) He seemed so relaxed and content, and really connected with the crowd. “What’s that? My name? What?” Matter of fact, in all the performances I’ve seen and there are many, I’ve never heard him respond to the Jung Ji Hoon fan chant like that. Ever. Before or after this. Never. (Clever guy, right, Terri? *wink, wink* *inside joke*)

The fans ’bout lost their minds every step of the way, and he knew it, ha ha. For those of you who haven’t seen this yet, and those of you who have and are back for some more of this long tall drink of Korean water, I’m hoping you enjoy it as much as they did. I know I do, every time!

In my next post, we’ll transport all the way back to 2008 with a performance that contains what is, in my opinion, Rain’s best “Rainism” stage ever. Until then! ❤

    This is the first time I have seen this and I was knee weak. He was so sexy and yet so angel like in this performance. I think having the angles of him really sent me over the top. You are right he was totally enjoying himself with the audience. Thank you for clearing up the chant. I could never understand what they were saying. How sweet to know that your fan see you and not just the persona. if you can find anymore as good as this one I would love to see them. please take care.
