[series] Rain’s World of Endorsements: Roadtrippin’ – 1492 Miles
Cloud cover by: Michele, Staff Writer
You can spill it. I know each one of you secretly (and some of you not so secretly) have or have had thoughts of a weekend getaway with Rain. You know, where he picks you up early Saturday morning in his cute car with his cute dog and won’t tell you where you are going but just gives you that mischievous grin? Then, takes you by the hand, plops you in the passenger seat, buckles you in, and you both speed off into the horizon? Yeah, that thought!! When the reality is you fire up Netflix or pop in a DVD and that romantic weekend getaway turns into a marathon of Young Jae, Kang Boku, Sang Doo or Ji Woo. By the way, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that scenario whatsoever! I will never diss the drama marathon, especially one of the Rain persuasion!
Throughout his career, Rain has endorsed many products, but he also has been a model for various clothing lines and fashion. I have always felt Rain was (and IS) a designer’s dream. Perfectly proportioned, tall, fit, athletic and handsome, he was and continues to be a natural. The camera just loves him. And when it comes to clothing, the man can simply wear anything, and wear it well.
Back in 2002-2003, he partnered with 1492 Miles clothing line. When you watch the CF and the short video about the making of the CF (no subs, but enjoy any way), I think you will agree that the relaxed vibe of this clothing was a perfect match for the young and upcoming superstar. Because he’s so comfortable with movement, the clothing was a perfect fit for Rain, the type of clothing I would expect to see him wearing for that weekend getaway or just any lazy Sunday afternoon on his way to the dance studio (because we all know the man would most likely be going to work, even on a Sunday)!
I love this CF. Even though the quality of the video is not spectacular, you can tell that it was filmed beautifully. Perfectly lit by the sun, the vast open road and natural landscapes provide a meditative atmosphere for our traveling man and his canine companion. And doesn’t he just look so happy? With the wind in his hair, not a care in the world, he looks like a man content with the journey he is about to embark on. Kind of fitting, right?
