[Cloud USA editorial] Please tell us there’s going to be another dance-off! LOL!
[ *ETA: We have heard the sad cries of our UK Cloud sisters, who cannot watch Colbert Nation videos on Comedy Central due to licensing problems and non-renewed contracts between CN and UK broadcasters from back in 2009, and we have emailed CC in hopes that, after all this time, a resolution can be found. It certainly doesn’t hurt to ask, right? ^@@^ ]
[Cloud USA] Oh, we are beside ourselves. Heheheheh! Our favorite humorist and all-around good guy Stephen Colbert is pretending to call out “arch-nemesis” Rain yet again, for winning another round in their “turf war” (MTV snubbed Colbert but good. Awwww!).
He had us cracking up so with his “devastated weeping.” He just can’t get a leg up on our Ji-Hoon. He just can’t! Poor man. ROFL!
Oh PLEASE let this lead to another dance-off. C’mon Rain, get your butt over here and answer the challenge. You can take him. Or… maybe this time Colbert will step into Rain’s territory for an Ozunu Showdown In Seoul, and have to dance or raizo his way back out of Korea alive. Hilarious. “RAIN…! You may have won this round, but I’m still ahead in lexicography!” ROFL!
Hopefully there is no one still out there who doesn’t realize this is all in good fun. (Yes, people have actually argued over this subject like a bunch of fools.) Colbert admires Rain as an amazing talent, and they are actually quite chummy.
“He had came on the show and did his dance, like BANG. Knocked it out. We were all just dazzled. It was incredible to be in the presence of someone who clearly was so talented and had dedicated themselves so completely to their art. It really was like, ‘Oh, I’m in the presence of a master.’” — Stephen Colbert, Discovery Channel‘s Hip Korea: Seoul Vibes – Jihoon Jung documentary, broadcast March 2009
Rain’s sense of humor is as crazy as Colbert’s and he got a real kick out of the 2008 Dance-off. If we know these two as well as we think we do, they will collaborate and have us laughing with this “feud” for a good while yet.
» It can’t be! RAINNNNNNNN…! He’s at it again. “Who’s not honoring me now?” From the Colbert Nation site.
» The Rain-Colbert May 2008 dance-off. Rain is all Raizo’d up and getting ready to film NINJA ASSASSIN, and Colbert isn’t bad at all in the dance department.
Enjoy this fan made video that condenses the Rain-Colbert dance-off and also goes WAY back in the day, to when Rain was welcomed to the city of Tokyo by a popular Japanese reporter and one of their mascots. And had side-splitting exploits on Korean TV. (courtesy of tamuditakko / music: Rain’s Fung Fu Fighting remake for the Kung Fu Panda original soundtrack)
