[61 images][news][links][18 vids] 비 Yourself Open Thread for 4/1 — 6/1/2019. FanClub overload!

Seventeen years old, with 2 albums done and his whole life ahead of him. ❤ I love what they did to his hair in Year 2! (1999)

There has been a large influx of new Clouds and new Rain fans, and Rain has mentioned working on new music. So, now is a great time to go all the way back and get folks up to speed on his albums, from 1998 to 2017!

Starting with the albums when he was 16 to 17 years old, when he went by his given name in the 6-boy K-Pop group FanClub (팬클럽), before he was 비 (Bi, Rain)… ^@@^

Fanclub 1 MOTIVE (1998).

This Month’s Features are: All about when JiHoon was 16 to 17 years old and performing in K-Pop group FanClub with band mates Kim HoSang, Yoo SungHyun, Kim KyoMin, Lee SangJin, and Jo Franky. On a good note, JiHoon still had his dear mom. On a bad note… it’s a damn shame those boys had to disband after only 2 years because of their crooked management. But, then he went on to become the icon RAIN, right? 🙂 ^@@^

2011. Rain shared his reminiscing about his FanClub days in tweets about himself and band mate Kim Hosang. Aw. ❤ ^@@^

(brief translation by rain bird @rain-eu.)

“The precious memory in my writing at the age of 16 that I happened to find while I was tidying my room.. The writing says, “There is no path !! Let me try to do my best today.”  I feel so sorry for what I was, such a very determined type of person at an early age.” ↓ ↓

Kim Hosang caught the FanClub social media-itch too, several times. Precious memories. ^@@^


FanClub 1. (1998) Listen HERE, courtesy of Cloud Hungary: Incredible RAIN. Amazing job, sis Harudo11! My FAVES are in BOLD Italics. ^@@^

I’m gonna say this. Mr. Stripe-haired Rapper (not Rain) had me feeling some kind of way by shouting out his “niggas” on both albums. No, no, no. Son, I would’ve thanked you to stay in your lane. Hmph. 😦 ^@@^

MV. “Baby.” Ji-HUN had the fullest, spikiest head of hair of the group and it was all over the place! The whole first solo is his (with a teeny interruption from a band mate). “Check, baby, check, baby, won’t you be mine!” Get it with that grown man voice, boy! ^@@^

MV. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Good luck keeping the girls and the boys apart, coach. LOL ^@@^

Live, Music Station. “Baby.” At the beginning, JiHoon (the tallest) is front and center, then breaks away for his solo. From there, he’s always over to your right. He looks and sounds just like himself, to me! ^@@^

Live, Music Camp. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” JiHoon is bopping around with that freakin’ blue donut, LOL. ^@@^
