Take a look back with us and see what we were posting about Rain on this day, March 28!

2013

Kim Jae Wook was about to finish up his Army service, and passed his squad commander duties on to Rain. We were soooo proud. ^@@^

» [soldier account] Kim JaeWook: “I’ve been our squad commander for about a month, and have passed this duty on to Cpl. Jung JiHoon.”

2012

Soldier Jung JiHoon was five months into his 2-year mandatory Army service and had just participated in the 2012 Seoul Peace Concert in Yongsan, sponsored by the military. It was the first time we’d seen him in a civilian suit in forever, it seemed. His trousers should have been getting hazard pay, yowza! In a later interview, he admitted his shock at having gained a little weight and was horrified at the prospect of his pants giving out on the stage. I don’t think any of us would have minded, just sayin’. :) ^@@^

2011

Rain’s first stop on his Rain The BEST Show Asia tour, in Beijing, was all over the news. Thumbs up! ^@@^

He and his Fabulous hyungs (SungTak, Hongshi, Gori, and SooBong, with their sexy backs) were wrasslin’ on the streets of Myeong-dong for charity (the Keep The Promise project) and KBS. Rain was like a cat when it came to kicking college athletes’ butts! He landed on top every time and won all of his matches. The champ was in the house! :)

Rain in talks to star in the Hong Sisters’ upcoming drama

rain2

It has been reported that singer-actor Rain is in talks to star in an upcoming drama by the Hong Sisters.

On March 22, a drama rep told Ilgan Sports, “Rain is currently thinking over a casting offer for MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Feeling Good’ (working English title).” This drama was formerly known as “Jejudo Gatsby,” and model-actor Kim Woo Bin recently turned down an offer for a role in it.

If Rain is to accept, he will be acting as the drama’s male lead—a restaurant owner named Baek Gun Woo, and it will be his comeback to the small screen after six months since “My Lovely Girl.”

The actor to take on the main character will have to take cooking lessons prior to filming, as the role calls for the actor to cook first-hand.

“Feeling Good” is a ‘healing’ romance drama set in Jeju Island. It is said that actress Kang Sora is also in talks to star as the female lead. It is expected to begin airing this coming May.

[article][MV][live stage] Rain creates key choreography for CLC’s debut song “Pepe”.

I don’t know about anyone else, but brand spankin’ new Cube Entertainment girl group CLC (CrystaL Clear) are straight-up cuties from their faces to their costuming to their moves and everything else about them. Love these girls. Well done, Cube!

And speaking of their moves, Rain creating key choreography for his debuting juniors’ song “Pepe” is awesome, indeed. Seniors supporting and giving back to the young’uns coming along under them says a lot. It also means these young ladies are tough as nails. Think about it. Having Mr. Legend In His Own Time, hawk-eyed Rain watch you do the dance steps he taught you, over and over again? *nerve-wracking* (Just ask MBLAQ!)

According to the girls, the chorus in particular is where Rain worked his magic, and while you don’t see much of the chorus in the official music video, you do see it in their live televised performances. I also noticed, though, that what little of the chorus dance you do see in the MV (more cutesy) is quite different from the chorus dance on stage (more sexy). Check it out below… the first 8-count is the same, the second 8-count is different. Did Rain do double-duty? :)

Rain created the choreography for CLC’s debut title song

Cube’s new girl group, CLC, introduced its choreography.

On March 18, CLC held its debut showcase for first album, First Love, held at the AX-Hall in Kwangjin. There, the girls revealed that Rain choreographed their dance moves.

“The focal point of Pepe is the cuteness. The choreography for the chorus especially was created by Rain sunbaenim. The dance doesn’t come out in the music video. We’ll be showing it on stage, so look out for it.”

CLC is the first girl group from Cube Entertainment since 4minute six years ago. CLC represents crystal clear, hoping to become a bright and shining crystal in the music industry with no changes.

The first mini album will be released on March 19.
