As of this moment, 6189 yellow ribbons for Rain have been added to Twitter and Facebook icons since the Brigade was started. Amazing! Thanks for supporting our favorite corporal during his military service and for letting him know you’ll be waiting when he gets home! » For a brief read about the meaning of the Yellow Ribbon, go to our previous post HERE.
SONG OF THE WEEK: “Escaping The Sun (Taeyangeul Pihaneun Bangbeop) 태양을 피하는 방법”, on Rain’s second album, Rain2: How To Avoid The Sun (2003), the album where he became known not only as 비, but as “Rain” as well. This was the project where Rain began marketing himself by the English meaning of his name. And this song was the third Rain song I’d ever heard (in 2006, after “Na” and “It’s Raining.”) All I can say is that it was like a drug. If I didn’t listen to “Escaping the Sun” at least once a day, I’d get severely bent out of shape. And it eventually ended up becoming the theme song for my first dark paranormal character, a guy who could no longer exist in sunlight and had lost the woman he loved a century before (no, he’s not a vampire, I don’t do vampires, they are OVERDONE).

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