[24 images][news][links][12 vids] 비 Yourself Open Thread for 3/1 — 4/30/2020. Rain’s World overload!

There has been an influx of new Clouds and new Rain fans, and Rain has mentioned working on new music. Don’t know if he is or not, but now is a great time to go all the way back and get folks up to speed on his albums, from 1998 to 2017!

The sixth installment of my Rain Career Music special series celebrates the time when Rain — his attention back on Korea after Japanese album Eternal Rain — dropped his next Korean offering Vol. 4 Rain’s World in October 2006. This was to be his final album at JYPE, his final project with the mentor who had discovered him and would forever be his hyung, Jin Young Park. The album’s success lead to a Rain’s World Repackage album a few months later. ^@@^

Rain’s first movie where he had the lead role, I’m A Cyborg But That’s OK, would be released at the end of this year (2006). This was also the year that he donated the funds for 50 wells (enough drinking water for 60,000 people) in Cambodia, and donated the proceeds from sales of the campaign umbrellas with his image on them to low income children. He also participated in the Love Photography Exhibition, an annual charity held by the Social Welfare Society and photographer Cho Sei-Hon, that helps children who are in government care find adoptive parents.

And don’t forget the absolutely MASSIVE BMW Meets Truth campaign. See the FULL film below. ^@@^

Official MV. “I’m Coming.” Camo-Rain, at his finest. As I understand it, Rain himself came up with the concept for the video, which was an angel coming down to earth and defeating the Devil. All I know is this MV enthralled me. Yowza! 🙂 ^@@^

Official MV. “In My Bed.” The song that made Terri a Cloud in record time! 🙂 ^@@^

Official MV. “With U.” From Rain’s first leading movie role in I’m A Cyborg But That’s OK. Yay! ^@@^

Fan cam. A favorite of mine — a “Don’t Stop” performance during his Rain’s World concert tour. He’s loose as a goose! ^@@^

Clip. “I’m Coming” LIVE on Music Core. ^@@^

Audio. Remember Japanese song “Move On” on Rain’s album Eternal Rain? The Korean version is on this album. ^@@^

Clip. Rain at the 2006 S-Fone Concert, in Vietnam. ^@@^

Clip. When Korea’s national team The Reds went to the World Cup in 2006, Rain sang the official song, “Go Forward.” ^@@^

Full short film. From the BMW meets Truth campaign (April 2006), a huge collaboration between BMW Korea, BMW Germany, JYPE, and Rain.  And there’s no telling who else was involved in that thing. A digital commercial release (“Still Believe”) with six different tracks of Rain’s song, a Rain music video featuring JYP and the Beemer, a 26-minute musical movie, an 18-minute dramatic film with villains, kidnappings, car chases, childhood love, and a hero fighting for his life, a 2-minute film trailer, a 4-minute trailer, 15-sec, 30-sec, and 60-second CFs, a website that subsequently got close to a million hits, massive press conferences and photo ops, an extensive online marketing plan completely built around Rain’s image… all to sell the new BMW that was hitting Korea that year. AH-MAZING! ^@@^

MV. The “Still Believe” music video from the BMW Meets Truth campaign. Here comes the Beemer! ^@@^

Clip. Rain accepts his IFPI Hong Kong Music Sales Award via video and in English. 🙂 ^@@^

Clip. From movie I’m A Cyborg But That’s Ok. I will NEVER forget my astonishment when I realized Rain could YODEL. Do you know how hard that is to do? His talent… just incredible, I tell you! ^@@^

Rain is Eternal. Where clouds stay gathered, rain will always come. It is inevitable.

— Stephe ^@@^
