[series][3 vids] From Stephe’s desk: Rain 비 TV performances that made me wanna shout! (#7)

What: The 29th Blue Dragon Film Awards, Special Performance

Where: KBS Hall in Yeouido, Seoul

When: 11/20/2008

How many times it made me want to shout: 11

1) I gave a delighted shout even before the show started because I was still a fairly novice Cloud with extremely limited Internet (dial-up^^) and limited Rain in my life, and I was banking on him being on this show.

Nowadays, there are dozens of ways to watch Korean programming, but back then, few to none. Thanks to an international channel on our cable provider, I got to watch a K-drama, some music videos, and occasional awards shows on my actual TV at night. My brother and I saw the Blue Dragons on the schedule and thought, Rain has a new song out (“Rainism”), the Wonder Girls have a new song out (“Nobody”), maybe they’ll perform, there’s a chance, right? We settled down to watch it and we both got our wish! What were the odds! Yaaaaaaay!

2) Oh my gosh, Rain in a tux. Need I say more.

3) He opened up with one of the first songs I heard as a novice fan, “My Girl”, and his voice wrapped around that gorgeous song was flawless.

4) When he presented actress/host Kim Hye Soo with a bouquet and complimented her with his eyes on how great she looked, who didn’t want to be her? Wahhhh… 🙂 He was right, too. She looked like a million bucks, representing for us women who were in our late 30s and 40s at the time. I was doggone proud of her then, and she’s become my favorite South Korean actress in the years since.

Jung Joon Ho, the male host for the night, was like Ehhhhh how am I supposed to compete with what he just did, Lol~ Poor guy.^^

5) When it was time to step closer to the audience and give the women folk — including a rumored ex — a thrill, he did just that. keke~

6) Dance break time! And. He. Killed. It.

7) It was the Rainism, the Rainism, and he danced his shirt right out of his pants. Git it, Rain!

8) The female celebs were on their phones texting. Hey, girl, hey… I’m watching Rain right now and I’m dyingggggggg

9) Oh, wow. He did the Rainism slide across the floor even though he was in tuxedo! I did not expect that. BOSS.

10) His burgundy-tinted hair had my vote. I can’t lie. ❤

11) Ooooh. He got a little subtle but nasty with the Rainism back-bend. It was more like a Rainism thrust, but I ain’t complaining, haha. Not one bit.^^

bonus2Time for some Bonuses! The reason that Rain presented Kim Hye Soo with a bouquet was an apology for something he accidentally did in 2004.

As I understand it, during “I Do” at the 3rd Korea Film Awards, he was handing out roses to all the ladies in the first row and passed Hye Soo by because she was wearing pants (to make it simpler to remember his blocking, where he was in the song, etc. he was only paying attention to dresses and skirts). At minute marker 3:43, Hye Soo and her friends cracked up because they had roses but he walked right by her and she had no rose to speak of, haha! She was so tickled, and held no ill will towards Rain at all because, hey, stuff happens. Even though she didn’t take it personally, Rain still felt bad about it, though, and four years later, totally surprised her by making up for it at the Blue Dragons. What a guy. 🙂

Just because fan cams are always fun. You can see and hear things that you didn’t during the broadcast.

One of the first fan made videos that became a favorite of mine, set to “My Girl.” It’s a compilation of his Six To Five fashion signing events that took place in the summer of 2009, and I remember practically playing this thing to death for a long time. ❤

Newbie or veteran, I hope you enjoyed this performance, peeps. Please share the things you like about it — I’m curious.

Number 8 is on the horizon. Until next time!

  1. First of all Stephe,your back stories add so much to the videos I have enjoyed and will now enjoy even more knowing the back stories. To remember and make amends on a four year old slight. It is the proof of a good heart and great humility. Would we expect anything less of him?
    Beez, that heffa was not the only one plotting, she was just not subtle with it.
    And that brings to my one big grape with the restraint of the Korean celeb audience at these award shows. If it were not for the fans, one would get the idea he is not liked. In fact my sister was watching one of the videos with me and said, they don’t like him very much, what is it about him you like? That is why I love the fan cams. As you can see it has been a while for to talk RAIN. Sorry.

    • Hi, Libbie. 🙂 Thank you! Rain’s life is so multi-dimensional, sometimes I just can’t help myself. I remember how fascinating his backstories were when I first heard them and how new things still fascinate me about him, and so I think it’s important to keep passing it on. 🙂

      Asian audiences are somewhat quiet (except for extreme circumstances) because it’s just their culture. It’s being polite and giving utmost respect to the person, especially when they like you. It is the opposite of us. Being boistrous disrespects a performance. (Of course, K-Pop fans work differently, haha!) I remember watching a Japanese sporting event and the audience said absolutely nothing until the very end and then they erupted in cheers, LOL~ I was like, oh, I thought they didn’t like it, LOL~

  3. Do we know what was so funny to the actresses in the first video -The 29th Blue Dragon Film Awards, Special Performance?

    I get that a lot of them were trying to play it cool, but then several times as they showed the audience, the actresses seemed to be laughing pretty hard in places where I didn’t see anything humorous.

    Like

    • Hi, Beez. I’ve never known what was so funny. But I can tell you what I think. ^_^

      His leading lady for K-drama Sangdoo, Let’s Go To School! (2003, Gong Hyo Jin, at 4:04 with the shoulder-length hair) was in that group of ladies. Though it was never confirmed by her or Rain, there was reason for folks to believe that the two dated back in those Sangdoo days. So, if I were a betting woman, I’d put $$ on one of the women saying, Gurl, didn’t you tap that back in the day? And her saying, Dang right I did! ahahaha~ And two actresses looked like somebody suddenly called them out, as in You sure are staring at him hard. LOL~ There was one sour-looking ajumma, but no telling what kind of a bad day she’d had, or something.

      But that’s just my take, me having a little fun. You know how women do. 😉

  4. It’s always hard to get through these posts with multiple videos because I have to rewind them over and over. So far, I’ve only watched through the video of the performance of “I Do” at the 3rd Korea Film Awards, I can just see that heffa that stars in all the nasty movies plotting & planning how she was going to get some of that ASAP! It’s written all over her face! lol
