The Fabulous Five in Washington D.C. on May 8. JiHoon with Hongshi, SangQ, Gori, and who looks to me like Yong Deock. Fantastic! (Fan cam: Yuseki Ota. Image credit: Kookmin Ilbo)

Hongshi taking the infamous pic

Hongshi is a real gentleman as he kindly snaps the picture for CloudUSAer Gee and Cuckoo and Scorpiola with Rain after the Arirang World Peace Festival in Washington D.C. on May 8, 2013. (Yong Deock, is that you looking on over there by the van?) Thanks much, dude! 😀 (Image courtesy of Gisele Winnier a.k.a. Gee)

The Magnificent Four with abs galore: SooBong, Gori, SungTak, and Hongshi, on the loose and ready to go for the “Love Song” MV. What did we do to deserve this. (Image credit: Ko SooBong @Twitter, on 3/15/2013)

Now THIS is what you call all kinds of HANDSOME in one picture. Glorious Gori, heavenly Honshi, ravishing Rain, suave SungTak, and stunning SooBong. Wah! 와 !!!! (credit: gori7911 @Twitter, 9/2011)

The Man and the Men getting ready to thrust “Hip Song” out into the world, in early 2010. The rest, of course, is history.

Remember? JiHoon, the Crew, and their strategically placed TAILS? 😉

Yeaaaah.

We’ve seen the broadcast footage, sure, but not the fan cam. The crowd was screaming as if they were being killed. The fans around the fan-cammer were in flat-out convulsions. Ohh, there’s KyuSang, YongDeock, SungTak, Gori, Hongshi… and is that NamYong?? *scream* Rain was seducing everyone who could see him. Look at that sly grin! Look at his reaction when he hears his name—sheer pleasure. Heh. If you don’t damn near pass out watching this, you have a strong constitution, my friends, because this is gold.

WOW. We love raintic.

Behold the men we have dubbed the SEXIEST DANCERS IN SOUTH KOREA.  Ruggedly handsome, buffed and cut, with talent to spare.  And they are doggedly loyal to Ji-Hoon.  We love them for that.

So far, the names we have on The Men are as follows (subject to change):

1. Kim Kyu Sang (Kyung Sang)
2. Park Kyeong Yeol (Gori)
3. (Who are you, sweetie?)
4. Song Jae Hong (Hongshi)
5. Park Nam Yong
6. Jeong Sung Tak (#3 of the 7 Rainmakers documentary)
7. Ko Soo Bong

Questions we have at present are as follows:  Kim Yong Hyun and Yong Deock were both mentioned in Back To The Basic thank-yous… are these nicknames for Men we already have, or is there any additional info out there on them?  And is Kyeong Yeol the same person referred to as Kyung Ryul?  Inquiring minds want to know.

[*UPDATE 12/9/10: Well, well.  The “Yong Deock” Mystery has been solved.  Turns out he is one of the Men we glimpsed a lot during the Hip Song comeback stages in May 2010, and during ZEPP Japan as well — we just hadn’t connected the name and the face.  You can thank Crewman Ko SooBong for kindly giving our Rain cloud sister Glenda this information.  Hugs to you both! ♥]

We’re open to additional information.  Thanks, fans!

Gori, SungTak, Honshi, Rain, (who are you, sweetie??), SooBong, and KyuSang. We want to know who “sweetie” is, desperately! He’s been tearing up the stage with Rain this year, and should be credited. Who are you, hon?

Well, thanks to Rain cloud Glenda tweeting to the handsome Ko SooBong in an attempt to find that answer, and SooBong kindly tweeting the answer back to her, we now know that “sweetie” in the above picture (backstage at the XVI Asian Games in China, November 2010) is hyung Yong Deock (Yongduck), who Rain mentions in his choreography thanks for the Back To The Basic mini-album.

Thanks a million, SooBong!  That’s doing it kostyle! 😀 (12/9/2010 ^@@^)

If you have to wait around on something, do it kostyle-cool. (Rain’s twitpic)

°

The Men in Sapporo…? And WHO is behind the camera, hmm? (Gori’s Twitpic) 🙂

°

Gori…! Dude — the hotness…! O.O (thanks, hnbme and star)

°

Nam-yummy.

°

There’s more talent & sexy cuteness in KyuSang’s little finger than most people have in their whole bodies.

°

Amazingly HANDSOME and doing it kostyle.

°

Ahhhhh… the Power of Three (with BbaekGa along for the ride).

°

So… recognize any “cowboys” in this fan-edited video?  Heheheh!  (credit and edit: lunaluna / courtesy of eye0rain)

The third Rainmaker of The 7 Rainmakers: Rain veteran dancer and choreographer (of It’s Raining and other works) Jeong Sung-Tak, who (along with Song Jae-Hong and Park Nam-Young) has been with Rain since his earliest JYPE training days, well before his 2002 debut.

The Men (and the Women?) behind The Man arrive in Osaka for ZEPP.

Michael Jackson tribute and It’s Raining.  Very special!  Extremely smexy!  From Yoo Hee-Yeul’s Sketchbook this past Spring 2010.  The entire show is over under our IN CONCERT pages.

°

Nam-Yong (who was back in the JYPE days with Rain and Sung-Tak) is also a choreographer for 2PM.  Here he is showing his choreography for 2PM’s recent 2010 hit “Don’t Stop Can’t Stop.”  ROFL! at Chansung and Junsu!  Thanks for the tip, wakki. 😉

°

This fan made treat includes our Man and our Men at their most hilarious, while they were in Los Angeles to learn the basic choreography for “Rainism” from noted choreographer AJ, during RAINY DAY Season 1.  Oh yeah, they were living the Thug Life, ready to hit the streets and start a gang fight.  And what the hell was Hongshi doing?  ROFLMAO!  (courtesy of kuutyan0909)

°

Yes, this nice hot clip is one of our favorites from the 2005 Rainy Day Tour… but the reason it’s here on this page is one person: KyuSang! At about the 5:23 minute mark, three dancers are showcased, and the SECOND one is our precious KyuSang with what looks like dreaded locks.  And he tore that stage up.  Wow.  (courtesy of papercut1987)

    • Hi, Mel.

      I nicknamed Rain’s dancers The Men Behind The Man, and Rain’s Crew. Makes it easier when I’m talking about them in a post. And it sure does fit, doesn’t it? 🙂

  3. Yea, a shout out to the Crew. I agree, they are one hard working and loyal group. They all work together so well and seem like family. I only know Hongshi so far, and will need to find out the other names as well.
    Rain picked an awesome group of guys to work with him.
