Cuteness personified! (in 24 hours… a day…)

Rain at the CCTV MTV awards in 2005. And having a grand ol’ time. By this time, he had fully established himself as the Master of Exhale, for real. “Ssssssss…ahhhww?” He was actually asking a question right there, at minute 3:15. Heh.

You don’t see those two things together often (LoR and “Bad Guy”/Nappeun Namja) unless it’s in the concert encore, Tango-style, with red velvet jacket and hot flamenco ladies. But at the tour stop in Seoul, Rain staged an original rendition of his debut song… with a little extra pizzazz and a dance break flow thrown in for kicks. Love it.

Waaaay back in “Blast from the past” history here, we brought you some broadcast footage from this utterly COOL performance at the MBC’s Songs Festival during the 2008 Christmas/New Year holidays. (Unfortunately, a lot of that—Rain’s Trampoline Dance, Rainism, the dance battle/passing the torch between JYP and Rain—has been scrubbed by YouTube.)
Up to this point, I’ve only seen just that… the MBC TV footage. I had no idea that THERE WERE FAN CAMS of it. My eyes are bugging out right now.
I love raintic.

Maybe the name of this event should have been the SOUL Music Festival. Ha.
Enjoy this fan made compilation/condensing of Rain at the summer 2005 Seoul Music Festival. He’s just showing out. Oozing charm. Feeling his Swagger.

Because you all know I have a REAL WEAKNESS for “No No No.” You know.

From 2002, Rain versus Rain… and standing in the rain before “Nan.” WOW. There will never be another dancer like Rain to cross this Earth. Nor another singer with that voice. Ever. As community member Melanie says: “The man is sex on legs.”

LOR Yoyogi, behind the scenes? Where and when this video takes place is unspecified (the upload date is the 18th as well), so this could be concert preparations backstage this weekend, or dress rehearsals from a different day, or even right before Rain and crew left for the venue. And in the whole scheme of things, does it really matter? What is quite obvious here is that it was very recent and our Ji-Hoon was tired but happy, and more than ready to get it on. (I LOVED seeing some of the crew in their “11 Days” get-up. Awesome.)

During the 2005 Rainy Day concert tour, Korea performance. Rain is so young. And SO cocky. And the way he moves is insane.

Because of You. Rain devotee Lunaluna made this video back in 2007, for Rain’s birthday. We must admit, it does give us the warm-and-toasties, not to mention this is one of our favorite songs. Enjoy.
If this doesn’t make a Cloud smile …we don’t know what will. ^@@^
