Végtelen erőfeszítés, végtelen kitartás, végtelen szerénység. (Rain vezérelve)

Tudtam, hogy ránézésre nem tűnök valami nagy számnak, a megjelenésem sem túl vonzó, de a bensőm elég rendkívüli. Minden színpadra lépés előtt azt mondom magamnak, hogy én vagyok a legjobb, és minden előadás után ugyanúgy azt, hogy nem én vagyok. Ezért minden fellépés előtt 120 százalékosan kell felkészülnöm, hogy az előadáson 100 százalékos teljesítményt tudjak nyújtani. Ennek érdekében minden álló nap folyamatosan képzem magam. Már nagyon hosszú ideje alváshiányban szenvedek, mert ha éppen nem dolgozom, akkor vagy edzek, vagy a koreográfiákat és a dalokat próbálom. Éppen úgy, mint a filmfelvételek idején, ha valamit nem csináltam jól, képtelen vagyok aludni. Akár színészként, akár énekesként, a legjobbat kell tudnom kihozni magamból. De nem kell aggódni, hogy most nincs elegendő időm az alvásra, jut arra majd bőven a halálom után. (Rain)

Ez a fiatalság, ez az egészség... és a túlcsorduló önbizalom... az erőfeszítés, amit az oly hihetetlen előadásai sikeres megvalósításáért tett... és a tehetség, amit felmutat, ezek töltenek el spontán tisztelettel engem. Azt gondolom, hogy a történelem a fontos személyiségek között fogja jegyezni. Úgy, mint aki színészként és zenészként egyaránt sikeres lett. ...
Ami igazán meglepő Ji-hoonban, az az, hogy egyfajta düh, bosszúvágy és szomorúság, az összes efféle sötét, komor negatív motiváció az ő esetében rendkívül optimista és derűs módon ölt testet.
(Park Chan-wook rendező)

비·슈주·소시..인천한류콘서트, 5만석 매진 '기염' 

 


비, 슈퍼주니어, 소녀시대 등 한류 스타들이 대거 출연하는 2009 인천 한류콘서트에 쏟아지는 관심이 뜨겁다.

2일 2009 인천 한류콘서트 측은 "2009 인천 한류콘서트의 5만석 전석이 매진됐다"며 "이는 공연이 열리는 인천 문학경기장의 최대 관람인원"이라고 밝혔다.

2009 인천 한류콘서트는 당초 지난달 22일 개최 예정이었으나 김대중 전 대통령의 서거로 오는 5일로 연기됐다. 한 관계자는 "VIP와 관계자, 언론 매체 등 초대 손님을 제외하고도 순수 온라인 창구를 통한 티켓이 전석 매진돼 인천시와 공연 관계자도 모두 놀랐다"고 전했다.

오는 5일 인천 문학경기장에서 개최되는 2009 인천 한류콘서트에는 비, 슈퍼주니어, FT아일랜드, 전진, M(이민우), 쥬얼리, 이정현, 윤하, 소녀시대, 샤이니, 2PM, 카라, 브라운아이드걸스 등 인기 스타들이 총출연할 예정이다.

'얼굴' 바꾼 더페이스샵, 무슨 사연 있기에  




중저가 화장품 브랜드숍 시장의 절대강자 '더페이스샵'이 브랜드의 '얼굴격'인 슬로건을 돌연 바꿔 그 배경을 놓고 업계의 이목이 쏠리고 있다.

더페이스샵은 브랜드 슬로건을 기존의 ‘내추럴 스토리(Natural Story)’에서 ‘뷰티풀 바이 네이처(Beautiful by Nature)’로 교체한다고 1일 밝혔다.

더페이스샵은 창립한지 6년밖에 안됐지만 굴지의 화장품 대기업 아모레퍼시픽, LG생활건강에 이어 업계 3위의 위상을 공고히 다진 성공한 후발업체. 특히 '자연주의' 기치를 내건 브랜드숍의 원조로 지난해 2351억원의 매출을 기록, 2000년대 초반부터 등장한 중저가 화장품 브랜드숍 시장에서 단연 최고 실적을 자랑해왔다.

이런 더페이스샵이 갑작스럽게 회사의 브랜드 아이덴터티(BI)를 상징적으로 보여주는 슬로건을 바꾸자 업계에서는 예상 밖이라는 반응을 보이면서도 더페이스샵이 자사 출신들이 모여 만든 신생 업체 '네이처 리퍼블릭'을 과도하게 의식한 결과라는 분석을 내놓고 있다.

업계 한 관계자는 "더페이샵이 슬로건을 내추럴 스토리에서 뷰티풀 바이 네이처로 '네이처'라는 말을 굳이 슬로건에 넣은 것은 '눈엣가시'같은 후발주자인 네이처 리퍼블릭을 의식한 조치로 보인다"고 말했다.

더페이스샵측도 "자연주의 브랜드숍 원조로 최근 수년 동안 유사한 자연주의 컨셉트를 내세운 후발주자들이 우후죽순처럼 등장해 차별화의 필요성이 커져 슬로건 교체를 단행하게 됐다"며 우회적으로 네이처 리퍼블릭의 의식하고 있음을 드러냈다.

업계 다른 관계자는 "토니모리 등 신생브랜드가 생기긴 했지만 자연주의 콘셉트의 후발주자는 네이처 리퍼블릭 뿐"이라며 "더페이스샵이 '자연주의' 이미지를 뺏기지 않기 위해 슬로건에 네이처를 확실히 못 박은 것 같다"고 말했다.

이규민 전 해외사업본부장 등 더페이스샵 출신 인력들은 네이처 리퍼블릭을 창업, 지난 3월 31일 명동에 1호점을 열면서 더페이스샵이 주도하고 있는 중저가 화장품 시장에 도전장을 던졌다.

이규민 전 더페이스샵 해외사업본부장은 현재 네이처 리퍼블릭의 대표이사로 지난 7월 기자간담회를 열고 "연내 해외 20개 매장을 포함해 총 220개 매장을 열고 600억원의 매출을 달성하겠다"고 밝히기도 했다. 네이처 리퍼블릭은 전국에서 가장 땅 값이 비싼 명동 중앙로에 옛 파스쿠찌 자리에 매장을 열어 화제가 됐다.

네이처 리퍼블릭은 '자연주의' 이미지와 한류스타(비)의 모델 기용 등 여러 가지 면에서 더페이스샵과 닮은 점이 많아 일찌감치 양사간 치열한 정면승부를 예고했다. 양사는 최근 네이처 리퍼블릭 명동 1호점을 둘러싸고 '자리다툼'까지 벌여 갈등이 노골화되기도 했다.

이번 슬로건 변경 조치에 대해 우려의 시선도 많다. '내추럴스토리 더페이스샵'이라는 BI는 창업 후 6년간 쌓아온 자산인데 경쟁심으로 인해 무리하게 슬로건을 변경한 게 아니냐는 지적이다.

또 다른 업계 관계자는 "내추럴스토리 더페이스샵은 이미 광고를 통해 일반에 많이 알려졌는데 졌다"며 "뷰티풀 바이 네이처라는 새로운 슬로건에 들일 기회비용을 감안하면 기존 슬로건을 너무 쉽게 버린 게 아닌지 우려스럽다"고 말했다.

This Friday at 7pm on MTV, "Behind the Screen" returns with exclusive looks -- clips, interviews, set visits... fun stuff -- at a number of hot upcoming movies, including "Jennifer's Body," "Clash of the Titans," "2012" and "Ninja Assassin." That last one, from "V for Vendetta" director James McTeigue, is what brings me here to you now.
Unless you were one of the lucky San Diego Comic-Con attendees to check out the surprise screening of "Ninja Assassin," you've probably not seen anything more than the trailer. We're going to correct that on Friday. Tune in for "BtS" to check out an exclusive clip from the movie, which is set to hit theaters on November 25. And since I'm well aware of how painful waiting for this sort of thing can be, I'm here to bring you an advance look at the clip, in Stop Motion.

immediately after he returned home, and luckily he was not seriously injured and
found that he has no difficult in holding his concert.


Ticket sales opened from September
1st, and it is possible to buy the tickets through Interpark

 08.31.09 [Fan Account] Legend of Rainism Concerts In Japan

Warning. If you love Rain, I suggest you ignore this fan account and just try your best to save and scrape if you have to and make a resolution to go to at least one of his Legend of Rainism concerts! This way you will be full of pleasant surprise. If you really cannot make it then I hope this fan account will not add fire to your desire to go!

Rain stood on the left side of the high stage when the lights dimmed, with his arms stretched out. He wore a silvery jacket with black patterns, black vest and trousers. It’s so funny that as soon as we saw him, every one of us in the arena automatically abandoned our seats and stood up and cheered. (In fact, we all remained standing throughout the show.) He did not move, we cheered again, louder and louder each time. At last the King of the Stage seemed satisfied with our screams, and he started the show with “My Way”.

As early as the second song “Touch Ya”, Rain was already leading us into party mood. He said: “Now shake your body, shake your body”, and the floor shook as we all shook.
Then he went up to the high stage again. My heart missed a beat when I saw him jump down from great height in preparation to sing “It’s Raining”. Here the King transformed himself to MJ and performed “Billie Jean” as a prelude. I don’t need to say anymore, the press, the photo said it all. Rain let us play the chorus too – “Rain, go Rain, it’s Raining, it’s Raining”, the whole concert hall was in motion.

I am not going to recap every song. To me, each one has its special appeal to me, and shed a new light to me about this talented young man. I will just highlight a few.
After “Not a Single Day” and “Familiar Face”, Rain disappeared into back stage to change. (During his change time throughout the show, the chorus, the band and the dancers were introduced and each perform a short piece).

Rain re-appeared with a brownish trench coat, with a gentleman bowler hat to sing “Because of You”. Rain’s body is all “covered”, we couldn’t even see his face hidden under the hat, but he performed the most charming, alluring dance here – elegant to the bone, healthily sexy from within.

The charming gentleman then became your sweetheart boy when he went up stage, sat down with the band and sang “Love Is” and “My Girl”. No dance moves, casual wear, he’s like the boy next door declaring his affection to the girl next door. It’s so warm and cozy. We were all under his spell and charm.
“Nan” was of course another highlight of the evening. Rain tore off his shirt, rain showered over him, he was on his knees, panting, he was in pain and agony. We could all feel his sadness. He did not look up, the shower stopped, the music stopped, he was still in pain. We stopped our breath and watched him. And he suddenly stood up and broke into the cutest, mischievous, lovely smile, as if to say “haha, didn’t I trick you all!” We just couldn’t help screaming and laughing.

And then he pulled down his trousers, we screamed, he pulled down further, we screamed louder, he took off his belt and admired his own body on the big screen! Then he stood against the “curtain” (silver tassels) of the stage and many black gloved hands grabbed various parts of his body from behind the curtain. He then shouted “OK, let’s do it then” and he performed another fantastic dance choreography. His body is so flexible yet so powerful, the dance is masculine yet sexy. Watching this part is like watching Legend of Rain’s Dance.
“11 Days” and “I Like You Again” gave the Broadway Musical feel – Rain looked exceedingly handsome in the royal blue jacket and mustard coloured trousers with another gentleman bowler hat. The chair dance, the props all added to the party atmosphere.
Rain was in his white Rainism outfit when he performed the last 3 songs – “Love Story” followed by “Rainism” (the red magic stick appeared again) and his last song “Friends”. I feel that Rain was particularly emotional in the second night when he sang his last song – or may be it was just me.

Rain was clearly in good moods in both nights for the encore songs. In the first night when he sang “Fresh Woman”, he performed the longest, fastest “hip hip” dance. Imagine a belly dance woman shaking her belly really fast, and Rain is doing the same with his hip! He even got down the stage and took a red wig from the audience and wore it. Rain asked us to jump, to dance, to scream and the whole concert hall went wild. In the second night all of us had an even longer encore dance, because Rain was cheering for all his dancers to perform a solo piece, chanting all the time “go go XXX”. This man has infinite energy – we were all losing our steam but he was still there pulling down his band to go to the stage to dance. He then took bottles of water and splashed on his dancers, disappeared down stage and came out from nowhere again. Of course he got splashed too, as several dancers circled him and took their revenge. It was a wonderful party. The only unfortunate incident was that Rain hurt his knees, and we could see that he was in pain only at the end of the first concert and at the end of the second concert – he just would not let the pain affect his performance.
It was raining heavily outside as we left the concert hall. Rain falls on all of us…

Rain gets injured during concert





Poor Rain injured his knee but his concert was a hit.

Rain, Korea’s very own “world star”, injured his knee during his ‘Legend of Rainism’ concert in Japan on August 29th. It has been reported that as soon as he returned to Korea on the 31st, he went to the hospital to get a number of tests including an MRI. A JTune Entertainment representative has stated,
Rain injured his knee during the concert and has gone to the hospital for an examination. We won’t know until we get the results of his examination but we don’t think his injury was bad enough to cause conflict to his current schedule.
Schedule or no schedule, Rain should take care of himself before he resumes with his promotional activities but it’s probably unlikely. With his schedule to attend the ‘2009 Incheon Hallyu Concert’on September 5th, ‘Legend of Rainism’ concert in Korea on October 9th and 10th, ‘Legend of Rainism’ concert in Hong Kong on December 12th and 13th AND various Ninja Assassin promotional events, I’d be surprised if he even has time to take care of “business” in the restroom.

Rain and Goo Hye-sun get to baking






The pair show off their culinary skills in their latest CF.

A few days ago, we broke the news that Rain and Goo Hye-sun were set to star in a CF for the French-style Korean bakery Tous Les Jours. Well, the CF has finally been revealed and the whole thing is a million times cuter than we could have imagined!
Rain and Goo Hye-sun portray a couple baking bread. The catch, however,  is that the pair are miniaturized while doing so. Imagine the adorable pair wielding  ginormous sifters, spoons and pastry bags all for the sake of making an insanely large pastry. Sounds like a recipe for a super-cute CF to me!
Rain and Goo Hye-sun shot the entire CF in front of a blank screen, putting to use their respective acting abilities. The couple reportedly adapted to the unconventional set and each other as filming went on. Background images and  effects were added in later during post-production.
In the past, Tous Les Jours CF’s featured Goo Hye-sun and actor Jo in-sung. Due to his current stint in the military, however, the actor was unable to film . Fortunately, megastar Rain was brought in and a new CF couple was born. We think Goo Hye-sun and Rain look adorable together, but what do you think? Do these two make beautiful…um, bread together?
Check out the pair hard at work in their new CF~

비, 아시아 투어 신호탄… 일본 ‘레전드 오브 레이니즘’ 공연




가수 비(본명 정지훈)가 일본 공연을 통해 아시아 투어의 첫 신호탄을 쏘아올렸다.

비는 지난 29일 일본 사이타마 수퍼 아레나에서의 공연을 시작으로 본격적인 2009 아시아 투어 ‘레전드 오브 레이니즘(Legend of Rainism)’에 돌입했다.

이번 공연에서 비는 자신만의 새로운 공연 콘셉트를 선보여 눈길을 끌었다. 먼저 가로 3.6m, 세로 7.2m 길이의 스크린을 무대 양쪽에 설치했고 무대 양측에 서로 다른 장치를 추가로 선보이며 비대칭적인 무대를 보여줬다. 또 2∼3개의 곡을 제외하고 대부분의 곡들을 밴드 음악으로 공연을 펼쳐 차별화했다. 또 얼마 전 사망한 ‘팝의 황제’ 마이클 잭슨의 대표곡 ‘빌리진(Billie Jean)’을 공연하며 그에 대한 존경심을 표현하기도 했다.

비는 이번 콘서트에서 게스트 없이 25곡을 무려 2시간30분 동안 선보였으며 공연 도중 다리 부상을 당했음에도 끝까지 완벽한 무대를 보여주는 투혼을 발휘하기도 했다.

현지에서 공연에 앞서 열린 기자회견에서 비는 차기작에 대해 언급해 눈길을 모았다. 비는 “작은 드라마로 팬들을 찾아뵙겠다”면서 “영화 ‘닌자 어쌔신’과는 다른 분위기를 선보일 것”이라고 밝혔다.

비는 11월25일 ‘닌자 어쌔신’의 전세계 개봉을 앞두고 있으며 10월9∼10일 서울 올림픽공원 체조경기장에서 아시아투어의 국내 공연을 갖는다.

비, 차기작은 드라마...유럽 미국 진출도 시도할 것  



[OSEN=이정아 기자]부상투혼을 발휘한 비가 앞으로의 계획을 밝혀 눈길을 모은다.

비는 일본에서 열린 2009 아시아 투어 '레전드 오브 레이니즘(Legend of Rainism)'에서 부상투혼을 발휘했다.

OBS 경인TV '독특한 연예뉴스'에 따르면 8월 29일 일본의 사이타마 슈퍼아레나에서 열린 공연에서 비는 이제까지의 모습과 180도 다른 콘서트를 선보였다. 콘서트 도중 안무를 선보이던 중 다리부상을 입었지만 멋진 안무를 보여줬다. 비는 공연이 끝난 뒤 다리를 절뚝거렸지만 공연에는 지장이 없는 것으로 전해지고 있다.

이번 공연에서 비는 이제까지의 모습과 180도 다른 콘서트를 선보였다. 기존의 화려한 볼거리는 물론 음악에 치중하면서 대중들과의 간격을 줄인 것이다. 특히 댄스 음악임에도 불구하고 대부분의 곡들을 밴드와 함께 선보여 화제가 되기도 했다. 엔싱크, 백스트리트보이즈, 하마자키 아유미 등 해외 유명스타들은 댄스음악도 밴드와 함께 하는 것으로 잘 알려져 있는 비가 이 같은 시도를 해 눈길을 끌었다.

이와 함께 비는 차기작으로 드라마를 선택했다. 비는 현지에서 가진 공식기자회견에서 "작은 드라마로 팬들을 찾아뵙겠다. 영화 '닌자 어쌔신'과는 다른 분위기를 선보일 것이다"라고 전했다.

차기 공연과 관련해서는 "일본 공연을 시작으로 중국, 서울에서 공연을 가진 뒤 동남아까지 투어를 공연을 할 예정이다. 가능하다면 유럽과 미국 진출도 시도해 보겠다"고 털어놨다.

비, ‘월드 투어’에 대한 포기 없는 도전 정신, 그리고 ‘닌자 어쌔신’




[OSEN=최영균의 인사이더] 비가 2009 아시아 투어 ‘Legend of Rainism’의 출발을 화려하게 열었다. 29, 30일 일본 사이타마 슈퍼 아레나에서 아시아 투어의 시작을 알리는 일본 공연을 성공리에 마무리했다.

대형 공연장의 객석 구석구석이 빈 자리 없이 꽉 채워졌고 연령대가 기존의 한류팬인 40,50대부터 10대에 이르기까지 층이 폭 넓어진 관객들은 뜨겁게 환호했다. 관객들의 반응을 열성적으로 만든 비의 공연 컨셉트 변화도 눈 여겨 볼만 했다.

비는 이번 공연에서 댄스 가수로는 드물게 공연의 거의 전체를 밴드 연주와 함께 했다. 워낙 전자음에 기반한 히트곡이 많아 새로운 시도가 어떤 결과를 낳을 지 궁금증을 자아냈지만 결과는 성공적이었다.

원곡에서 강력한 임팩트를 주는 전자음은 그대로 살리되 전반적인 반주를 밴드 실연으로 대체, 기계음 일색의 과거 프로그래밍 반주에 비해 관객들은 좀더 음악에 부담 없이 접근하면서 비의 퍼포먼스를 즐길 수 있었다. 게스트나 멘트가 없고, 공연 중간중간 의상이나 컨셉트를 바꾸는 브리지 부분을 밴드의 연주로 연결하는 시도도 공연의 집중도를 높였다.

이러한 관객친화적 음악 변화에 맞춰 비의 퍼포먼스도 다소 달라진 모습을 보여줬다. 과거 강렬한 에너지와 포스를 퍼포먼스 내내 뿜어내며 관객을 압도하던 모습에서, 파워가 필요한 부분은 여전히 강력하게 강조하되 나머지 영역에서는 부드러움과 여유로움을 많이 가미하는 방식으로 변화를 추구했다.

무대도 이전의 현란한 효과, 댄싱팀과의 화려한 집단 군무를 다소 자제하고 비 자체의 퍼포먼스에 관객이 집중할 수 있도록 연출됐다. 이미 한국의 퍼포먼스를 선도하는 비였지만 이번에는 부드러움으로 강력함을 넘어서는 ‘고수’의 풍모를 전하는 공연을 보여줬다.

끊임없이 변화를 시도하는 비이지만 달라지지 않은 것도 있었다. 공연 전날 자정까지 세 차례나 리허설을 하면서 스태프들을 지치게(?) 만드는 완벽주의와 성실함, 에너지 소모가 큰 댄스 음악을 하면서도 25곡이나 되는 레퍼토리를 준비하는 팬서비스 정신 등이 그러하다.

전반적으로 비의 공연은 해외에 내놓을 수 있는 한국의 중요한 대중 문화 컨텐츠임이 분명하다. 하지만 비는 지난 첫 월드 투어 시도에서 큰 아픔을 겪었다. 공연이 무산되는 것에 눈물을 쏟았고 이후 재판으로 많은 고통을 겪었다. 이런 일을 겪고 나면 ‘월드 투어’를 떠올리기도 싫을 터인데 비는 이번 공연을 앞두고 일본 기자들과의 회견에서 ‘미국, 유럽 공연’을 언급했다.

비록 ‘월드 투어’라는 단어를 사용하지는 않았고 아직 구상 단계이긴 하지만 이번 일본과 중국, 그리고 동남아를 도는 아시아 투어와 연결하면 사실상 월드 투어가 된다. 비는 월드 투어에 대한 도전 의지를 난관을 겪고도 굽히지 않고 있는 것이다. 한국 연예계에서 세계를 향한 이처럼 강한 도전 의지를 만나기는 쉽지 않다. 그 의지 만으로도 비는 높은 평가를 받을 만하다.

비의 월드 투어에 대한 재도전은 11월에 개봉하는 첫 할리우드 주연작 ‘닌자 어쌔신’과 관련이 있을 것으로 보인다. ‘닌자 어쌔신’이 좋은 반응을 얻을 경우 미국, 유럽 공연 시도가 훨씬 용이해지질 수 있기 때문이다.

다행히 현재까지 분위기는 긍정적이다. 공개된 예고편이 화려하고 현란한 액션과 특수효과로 많은 관심을 모았고 최근 완성본을 본 비도 크게 만족감을 표시할 정도로 작품의 완성도가 높다는 평이 관계자들로부터 나오고 있다.

물론 관계자들은 이해당사자이니 좋은 평가가 나오기 쉽지만 예고편에 대한 해외팬들의 긍정적인평가 등 ‘닌자 어쌔신’과 관련된 전반적인 흐름이 관심을 가질만한 분위기다. 불굴의 도전정신을 보여주는 비에게 ‘닌자 어쌔신’의 성공과 미국 유럽 공연의 성사가 연이어 이어지는 올해 겨울이 올 수 있기를 기대해본다.

베일 벗은 비… 뉴 퍼포먼스!



'비' 바람이 열도의 늦더위를 시원하게 날려버렸다.

가수 비는 29일 일본 도쿄 사이타마현 슈퍼아레나에서 펼쳐진 '레인 아시아투어 레전드 오브 레이니즘 인 재팬(Rain Asia Tour Legend of Rainism)'에서 화려한 무대 매너로 1만5,000여 명의 팬들을 열광시켰다. 그는 2시간20분의 러닝타임 동안 총 25곡의 무대를 쉬지 않고 내달리며 팬들과 교감했다.

그는 이날 공연을 위해 당일 새벽 2시까지 총 12시간 동안 리허설을 거듭할 정도로 열의를 보였다. 비의 아시아 투어를 화려하게 장식한 일본 콘서트의 리허설 장면을 스포츠한국이 독점으로 입수해 화려했던 본 공연의 순간들과 함께 엮었다.

#1 '월드스타' 목풀다

비가 본 공연 하루 전인 28일 사이타마현 슈퍼아레나를 찾았다. 6개월 가량 이번 공연 준비에만 매달린 그였지만 '완벽주의자'답게 준비 상황을 점검하며 쉽게 만족하지 않았다. 3번의 사전 리허설을 마치고도 최종 리허설까지 한차례 더 끝내야 '월드스타'의 직성이 풀렸다. 그와 공연 스태프는 새벽 2시 남짓이 돼서야 숙소로 돌아올 수 있었다.

#2 '월드스타' 몸풀다

무대에 나선 비의 이마에 땀이 송글송글 맺혔다. 좌우를 짧게 올려 친 그의 새로운 헤어스타일 덕분에 땀에 젖은 모습은 더욱 도드라져 보인다. 그가 숱한 땀방울을 흘릴 것을 알기라도 했다는 듯그의 목에 귀엽게 걸쳐진 수건이 인상적이다.

#3 로맨틱 가이 비

비가 어쿠스틱 기타의 반주에 맞춰 <사랑이라는 건><내 여자>를 연습 중이다. 이 부분은 이번 공연 중 가장 로맨틱했던 대목이다. 본 공연에서 그가 간이 의자에 앉아 객석을 응시하며 '러브 송'을 부르자 객석 여기저기에서는 탄성이 터져 나왔다. 노래 간주 중 잠시 상념에 젖은 그의 표정마저도 감미로워 보인다.

#4 비가 내리다

비가 무대에 오프닝 영상과 함께 등장했다. 웅장한 드럼 반주와 눈부신 조명을 배경으로 그가 나타나자 객석은 '비'를 외치는 환호로 가득했다. 20초간의 정적이 흐르고 그가 '마이 웨이'를 외치며 노래를 시작하자 공연장의 온도를 후끈 달아올랐다.

#5 한국의 마이클 잭슨

비가 세번째 곡 <잇츠 레이닝(It's Raining)>을 시작하기 앞서 마이클 잭슨의 <빌리 진> 도입부를 재현했다. 누구보다 마이클 잭슨을 흠모했던 비는 이번 공연을 준비하면서 그를 위한 무대를 준비했다. 더욱이 그의 생일에 아시아 투어를 시작하면서 그의 표현대로 "짧고 임팩트 있게" 마이클 잭슨을 추모하고 추억했다.

#6 비가 웃는다

비가 <난 또 니가 좋은 거야>를 부르며 환한 미소를 지어보였다. 그는 이 무대에서 흰 중절모와 네이비 더블재킷을 멋스럽게 차려 입었다. 이 무대뿐만 아니라 대부분 구두를 신고 무대에서 현란한 퍼포먼스를 선보여 스태프를 놀라게 했다. 춤추랴 노래하랴 그리고 웃으랴 무대 위 비는 참 바쁘다.

#7 아듀! 재팬

비가 앙코르 곡 <프레시 우먼(Fresh woman)>으로 팬들과의 안타까운 작별을 고했다. 그는 앙코르 무대 뒤에도 DJ가 만드는 흥겨운 리듬에 맞춰 무대 아래에서 팬들과 함께 뛰었다. 마치 대형 클럽을 방불케 하는 엔딩 무대가 끝난 뒤에도 팬들은 한동안 자리를 뜨지 못했다.

비, 구혜선과 같이 밤샌 사연은?  


비와 구혜선이 환상 호흡을 자랑한다.

 뚜레쥬르 광고 속에서 비와 구혜선은 손바닥만한 크기의 미니 파티쉐 요정으로 변신해 아기자기하고 사랑스런 모습을 보여준다.

 이번 광고는 비와 구혜선이 귀여운 미니 파티쉐 요정으로 변신한 내용이었기 때문에 빵 반죽을 비롯해 주변 소품대형화해야 했다. 촬영을 위해 거대한 모형의 스푼과 포크, 채. 빵 반죽, 그리고 아몬드 조작이 특수 제작되었고, 비는 엄청난 무게의 대형 스푼을 들고 시럽을 뿌리고 구혜선은 나무로 만든 대형 아몬드 조작 모형을 빵 위에 던지는 연기를 하는 등 재미있는 에피소드가 많았다. 특히 거의 모든 장면이 합성으로 이뤄지는 촬영이라 비와 구혜선은 텅 빈 파란 크로마키 공간에서 마치 실제 거대한 빵을 굽고 있는 듯이 연기를 해야 했다. 촬영 난이도가 높다보니 시간이 다른 때보다 더 걸린 것은 당연한 일.

 이들은 힘든 밤샘 촬영을 잘 끝낸 뒤 CM송도 함께 같이 불렀다.

Rain Kicks Off Asia Tour in Japan  





Rain's pan-Pacific tour, "Legend of Rainism" has begun, and forget storms, this hot-blooded star is steaming! The titled "Korean Justin Timberlake" kicked off the first leg of his tour Saturday night in Japan at the Saitama Super Arena. He's been concentrating on working out and rehearsing for the past half year in preparation for this vigorous tour, and it sounds like the work paid off!
After opening with "My Way" and "Touch Ya", Rain performed a vigorous set of hits for a total of twenty-five numbers, including eight songs from his fifth album as well as hits like "It's Raining", "Running Away from the Sun", "I Do", "Love Story" for a two-and-a-half hour concert. The singer even paid a tribute to the
late King of Pop (whom Rain has pinned as the inspiration that got him into dancing) by performing "Billie Jean", complete with Michael Jackson's signature fedora and trademark dance moves.Rain had five or six sets of outfits throughout the night, including the obligatory T-shirt that he eventually tore off while drowning himself in the rain. Phew, Rain's been in the industry as a singer for seven years now, but it never gets old!
J. Tune Ent promised a new, distinctive performance to show how Rain has matured as an artist, and it seems like they weren't kidding - Rain took a step from the previous concerts, opting for a live band instead of using recorded tunes as well as performing romantic ballads like "My Girl" and "The Thing About Love" instead of sticking to pop songs. Even his stage was different - instead of using a symmetrical setup like most concerts, the stage had an asymmetrical design to give Rain's performance a bit of edge. The star also tried to speak in Japanese and Engrish English to better connect with his audience.
J. Tune Ent has confirmed concerts in Seoul at the Olympic Stadium on October 9 & 10 and Hong Kong on Dec 12 & 13; further dates and venues for various countries will be announced on the
tour website once the promotion dates for "Ninja Assassin" (to be released on Nov 25) is set. Wow, Rain's juggling many events for the remainder of 2010; we're looking forward to his upcoming activities!

Rain & Goo Hye Sun Bake for Tous Les Jours

 


Rain, Goo Hye Sun and a bakery... how can an endorsement with all three things NOT be adorable? Yesterday, Tous Les Jours (뚜레쥬르) announced that the two stars of Korea's most popular dramas (Full House, Boys over Flowers, respectively) would be teaming up as models for a new CF and promised to show a cute charm from the duo. With recent screenshots surfacing the net, there's no doubt that TLJ Bakery kept its word.

Dolled up in matching green & white outfits, Rain & Hye Sun take a page out of a fairytale (Jack and the Beanstalk anyone?) and are miniaturized into tiny figures on a kitchen table. Despite their Thumbelina (or Thumbelino in Rain's case, I guess) status, the two manage to bake some pastries from start to finish with creative means, from using a ladle as an elevator to catapulting a chunk of cheese off a fork.

[Aug-31-2009]Rain interview after the first concert in Japan: "I want to give 9points out of 10 to this concert."


 

 


Q :You lamely walked a little after your first concert in Japan. Are you OK now?
Rain : Coming downstairs during my performance, I seemed to put stress on the knee in an instant. A muscle spasm might happen. But I guess I have no difficulty in holding tomorrow's concert.

Q : It was some concert.. How do you feel about it?
Rain : I've hold my concert for the first time in 3 years, and I'm filled with emotion. I especially cared about the direction part, having prepared for my concert for a long time. I think I can give 9points out of 10 to this concert.

Q : What stage did you like best?
Rain : The beginning and end of the concert were under control smoothly.
Once the concert comes in, what firecrackers shaped like Niagara Falls and smoke simultaneously appear on the stage has to be well timed, luckily it went well in ways that I absolutely love.
Above all things, I'm very pleased that I had a good time with my fans just as I dance with them in the club.

Q : You showed a club-style stage in the way that you promised last time.
Rain : That's right. I used to show my stage to the audience one-sidedly in the past, but the best thing about holding this concert is that I had a good time with them.

Q : I dont' know if you moved intensely all through the concert but you looked tired a little.
Rain :That's true, not to mention age will tell. There are quite a number of dance performances in every stage. This concert was pretty hard, but most interesting.

Q : Band might be given more weight.
Rain : All of songs were sung to band accompaniment, exclusive of 2 songs to MR.
I wanted to make the best of live stage, giving vividness to my songs. I think my fans liked more than before.

Q : Now you've opened your concert, what's your preparedness?
Rain : I want to show a stage to understand each other rather than its splendid appearance. There's very little I mention to the audience during the concert. Such tedious mentions can bore them at any moment. I tried to induct them into having a good time each other, by the repeated performances instead of such mentions.

[Aug-31-2009]Rain receives treatment because of an injured knee during his concert in Japan on the 29th. 





Rain consulted an orthopedist for an overhaul at Seoul Kangbook Samseong Hospital on the morning of the 31th, because he was wounded in the left knee during his Asia Tour, Legend of Rainism, in Japan on the 29th, then he was diagnosed with just a sprain and was allowed to return straight after a brief physical therapist.


An official from Rain's agent J.Tune entertainment expressed, "Rain seemed to put stress on his knee in a moment, jumping down from the second floor of the stage during his performance.

He did not get a superficial wound, but since he continuously complained of his knee pain, he went to the hospital immediately after his homecoming. His family doctor suggested to him not to work too hard for some time, but to take a rest."

In front of the orthopedic surgery at the hospital this day, a lot of Rain's fans including patients crowded around him due to his sudden appearance, that raised a confusion.

The agent side said, "Everything will be on schedule unless he abuses his health."

Posted by memo-rain on August 31, 2009 at 7:59pm

In remembrance of his idol, Rain performed to one of MJ’s most celebrated works “Billie Jean”. During the press conference prior to the concert, he said, “Michael Jackson is the most outstanding performer of our time, I know that today is his birthday, that’s why I have prepared a special performance in honor of him.” Rain also disclosed that he wants to act in a drama series again.

Rain Kicks Off Asia Tour in Japan


Posted by memo-rain on August 31, 2009 at 8:00pm




Rain's pan-Pacific tour, "Legend of Rainism" has begun, and forget storms, this hot-blooded star is steaming! The titled "Korean Justin Timberlake" kicked off the first leg of his tour Saturday night in Japan at the Saitama Super Arena. He's been concentrating on working out and rehearsing for the past half year in preparation for this vigorous tour, and it sounds like the work paid off!

After opening with "My Way" and "Touch Ya", Rain performed a vigorous set of hits for a total of twenty-five numbers, including eight songs from his fifth album as well as hits like "It's Raining", "Running Away from the Sun", "I Do", "Love Story" for a two-and-a-half hour concert. The singer even paid a tribute to the late King of Pop (whom Rain has pinned as the inspiration that got him into dancing) by performing "Billie Jean", complete with Michael Jackson's signature fedora and trademark dance moves.

Rain had five or six sets of outfits throughout the night, including the obligatory T-shirt that he eventually tore off while drowning himself in the rain. Phew, Rain's been in the industry as a singer for seven years now, but it never gets old!


J. Tune Ent promised a new, distinctive performance to show how Rain has matured as an artist, and it seems like they weren't kidding - Rain took a step from the previous concerts, opting for a live band instead of using recorded tunes as well as performing romantic ballads like "My Girl" and "The Thing About Love" instead of sticking to pop songs. Even his stage was different - instead of using a symmetrical setup like most concerts, the stage had an asymmetrical design to give Rain's performance a bit of edge. The star also tried to speak in Japanese and Engrish English to better connect with his audience.

J. Tune Ent has confirmed concerts in Seoul at the Olympic Stadium on October 9 & 10 and Hong Kong on Dec 12 & 13; further dates and venues for various countries will be announced on the tour website once the promotion dates for "Ninja Assassin" (to be released on Nov 25) is set. Wow, Rain's juggling many events for the remainder of 2010; we're looking forward to his upcoming activities!

Rain & Goo Hye Sun Bake for Tous Les Jours

Posted by memo-rain on August 31, 2009 at 8:01pm


Rain, Goo Hye Sun and a bakery... how can an endorsement with all three things NOT be adorable? Yesterday, Tous Les Jours (뚜레쥬르) announced that the two stars of Korea's most popular dramas (Full House, Boys over Flowers, respectively) would be teaming up as models for a new CF and promised to show a cute charm from the duo. With recent screenshots surfacing the net, there's no doubt that TLJ Bakery kept its word.

Dolled up in matching green & white outfits, Rain & Hye Sun take a page out of a fairytale (Jack and the Beanstalk anyone?) and are miniaturized into tiny figures on a kitchen table. Despite their Thumbelina (or Thumbelino in Rain's case, I guess) status, the two manage to bake some pastries from start to finish with creative means, from using a ladle as an elevator to catapulting a chunk of cheese off a fork.

[Aug-31-2009]Rain interview after the first concert in Japan: "I want to give 9points out of 10 to this concert."


Posted by memo-rain on August 31, 2009 at 8:04pm



Q :You lamely walked a little after your first concert in Japan. Are you OK now?

Rain : Coming downstairs during my performance, I seemed to put stress on the knee in an instant. A muscle spasm might happen. But I guess I have no difficulty in holding tomorrow's concert.


Q : It was some concert.. How do you feel about it?

Rain : I've hold my concert for the first time in 3 years, and I'm filled with emotion. I especially cared about the direction part, having prepared for my concert for a long time. I think I can give 9points out  of 10 to this concert.

Q : What stage did you like best?

Rain : The beginning and end of the concert were under control smoothly.

Once the concert comes in, what firecrackers shaped like Niagara Falls and smoke simultaneously appear on the stage has to be well timed, luckily it went well in ways that I absolutely love.

Above all things, I'm very pleased that I had a good time with my fans just as I dance with them in the club.

Q : You showed a club-style stage in the way that you promised last time.

Rain : That's right. I used to show my stage to the audience one-sidedly in the past, but the best thing about holding this concert is that I had a good time with them.

Q : I dont' know if you moved intensely all through the concert but you looked tired a little.

Rain :That's true, not to mention age will tell. There are quite a number of dance performances in every stage. This concert was pretty hard, but most interesting.


Q : Band might be given more weight.

Rain : All of songs were sung to band accompaniment, exclusive of 2 songs to MR.

I wanted to make the best of live stage, giving vividness to my songs. I think my fans liked more than before.


Q : Now you've opened your concert, what's your preparedness?

Rain : I want to show a stage to understand each other rather than its splendid appearance. There's very little I mention to the audience during the concert. Such tedious mentions can bore them at any moment. I tried to induct them into having a good time each other, by the repeated performances instead of such mentions.

08.31.09 [Fan Account] Legend of Rainism Concerts In Japan

Warning. If you love Rain, I suggest you ignore this fan account and just try your best to save and scrape if you have to and make a resolution to go to at least one of his Legend of Rainism concerts! This way you will be full of pleasant surprise. If you really cannot make it then I hope this fan account will not add fire to your desire to go!



Rain stood on the left side of the high stage when the lights dimmed, with his arms stretched out. He wore a silvery jacket with black patterns, black vest and trousers. It’s so funny that as soon as we saw  him, every one of us in the arena automatically abandoned our seats and stood up and cheered. (In fact, we all remained standing throughout the show.) He did not move, we cheered again, louder and louder each time. At last the King of the Stage seemed satisfied with our screams, and he started the show with “My Way”.



As early as the second song “Touch Ya”, Rain was already leading us into party mood. He said: “Now shake your body, shake your body”, and the floor shook as we all shook.

Then he went up to the high stage again. My heart missed a beat when I saw him jump down from great height in preparation to sing “It’s Raining”. Here the King transformed himself to MJ and performed “Billie Jean” as a prelude. I don’t need to say anymore, the press, the photo said it all. Rain let us play the chorus too – “Rain, go Rain, it’s Raining, it’s Raining”, the whole concert hall was in motion.



I am not going to recap every song. To me, each one has its special appeal to me, and shed a new light to me about this talented young man. I will just highlight a few.

After “Not a Single Day” and “Familiar Face”, Rain disappeared into back stage to change. (During his change time throughout the show, the chorus, the band and the dancers were introduced and each perform a short piece).



Rain re-appeared with a brownish trench coat, with a gentleman bowler hat to sing “Because of You”. Rain’s body is all “covered”, we couldn’t even see his face hidden under the hat, but he performed the most charming, alluring dance here – elegant to the bone, healthily sexy from within.



The charming gentleman then became your sweetheart boy when he went up stage, sat down with the band and sang “Love Is” and “My Girl”. No dance moves, casual wear, he’s like the boy next door declaring his affection to the girl next door. It’s so warm and cozy. We were all under his spell and charm.

“Nan” was of course another highlight of the evening. Rain tore off his shirt, rain showered over him, he was on his knees, panting, he was in pain and agony. We could all feel his sadness. He did not look up, the shower stopped, the music stopped, he was still in pain. We stopped our breath and watched him. And he suddenly stood up and broke into the cutest, mischievous, lovely smile, as if to say “haha, didn’t I trick you all!” We just couldn’t help screaming and laughing.



And then he pulled down his trousers, we screamed, he pulled down further, we screamed louder, he took off his belt and admired his own body on the big screen! Then he stood against the “curtain” (silver tassels) of the stage and many black gloved hands grabbed various parts of his body from behind the curtain. He then shouted “OK, let’s do it then” and he performed another fantastic dance choreography. His body is so flexible yet so powerful, the dance is masculine yet sexy. Watching this part is like watching Legend of Rain’s Dance.

“11 Days” and “I Like You Again” gave the Broadway Musical feel – Rain looked exceedingly handsome in the royal blue jacket and mustard coloured trousers with another gentleman bowler hat. The chair dance, the props all added to the party atmosphere.

Rain was in his white Rainism outfit when he performed the last 3 songs – “Love Story” followed by “Rainism” (the red magic stick appeared again) and his last song “Friends”. I feel that Rain was particularly emotional in the second night when he sang his last song – or may be it was just me.



Rain was clearly in good moods in both nights for the encore songs. In the first night when he sang “Fresh Woman”, he performed the longest, fastest “hip hip” dance. Imagine a belly dance woman shaking her belly really fast, and Rain is doing the same with his hip! He even got down the stage and took a red wig from the audience and wore it. Rain asked us to jump, to dance, to scream and the whole concert hall went wild. In the second night all of us had an even longer encore dance, because Rain was cheering for all his dancers to perform a solo piece, chanting all the time “go go XXX”. This man has infinite energy – we were all losing our steam but he was still there pulling down his band to go to the stage to dance. He then took bottles of water and splashed on his dancers, disappeared down stage and came out from nowhere again. Of course he got splashed too, as several dancers circled him and took their revenge. It was a wonderful party. The only unfortunate incident was that Rain hurt his knees, and we could see that he was in pain only at the end of the first concert and at the end of the second concert – he just would not let the pain affect his performance.

It was raining heavily outside as we left the concert hall. Rain falls on all of us…
