Rain and Daniel Henney in Manila

Rain and Ukiss recently had their concert last night in the SM Mall of Asia.. I did not have the chance to go to the concert because Manila is a plane ride away from where I live.

Not seeing the concert was ok.. but I turned into a green eyed monster when I saw this picture from the Smart Communications facebook page (they were a sponsor to the show). Apparently, it wasn’t only Rain who came to Manila but there were also other artists who came and one of them was Daniel Henney!!

I so envy some of the people who went to the press conference! kk

And you might be asking why are they here?? Well according to the article “Rain is in the Philippines to film a TV Series called Runaway, which is a Domangja and TV5 Co-Production.” TV5 is one big of the 3 broadcasting companies here in the Philippines.

And why is Daniel Henney here? ” Runaway features your Korean drama favorites. Jihoon Jung, aka Rain, who starred in “Full House”, “A Love to Kill” and “Ninja Assassin.” Daniel Henney, who is a Hollywood actor, starred in “My Name is Kim Sam Soon”, “Spring Waltz” and “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. Lee Na Young starred in “Ruler of Your Own World”, “High Kick Through The Roof”. Lee Jungjin starred in “I Love You, Don’t Cry”, “Love Story in Harvard”. Yoon Sun Ha starred in “Love Greeting” and “Did We Really Love.””

Sigh!

Though I wasn’t there, I saw pictures to relive the moment.. And I’m sharing them!!

Love Song / A Song that will hold you back – Rain

For the past few days I’ve been wanting to update my blog but I was lazing around. Though I’ve seen 500k plus people has visited my site.. I still don’t know what to share.. I have so many ideas what to share but I didn’t know where to start!

And then I saw Rain’s new MV!! And I absolutely had to post this!!! This is the exact thing I wanted to share on my blog! Rain!! Bi!!!

When I saw this video.. my mind went blank!! Literally… blank! I shared this video to a friend of mine and she said she did not know how to react… she had to watch it a couple of times more! I had to watch it 2 more times too before it sank in! Rain is soo freakin’ hot in this video!!! kk.. I think that is the reaction I was trying to figure out when I saw the video… OMG! His abs look good.. His arms look so good! Rain never ceases to surprise us.. And if you are wondering who the girl from the video is, it’s Han Ye Seul (from Will it Snow at Christmas with Goo So).

If you ask me Rain is not that handsome.. I mean there are many more idols who looks better than he do.. and some of my Korean friends say that too. But Rain has an appeal like no other Korean star has. And I think that is why I really like him. This appeal most people cannot explain. I can’t too. According to my Kfriends, Rain is a very hard working celebrity and a lot of them like him because of his rags to riches story. He is an inspiration to most young people and they really are proud of him. I think that’s what makes Rain a very popular star.. well aside from his delish body that is…

I know I haven’t been rambling too much in my blog for a long time, but if I talk too much maybe I would not get to post anything.. so I’ll stop and post the song…

Love Song / A Song That Will Hold You Back – Translation

I’m hanging around your house again today
I’ve gotten angry
I’m stuggling
I’m struggling
Struggling like this…

But I couldn’t help it
It’s too late to change my mind
It’s over
It can’t be helped now…

The familiar hands of yours pushed me away
What do I do…
What do I do…

Even today, i’m still missing your presence
What do I do…
What do I do…
Please…
Oh please…
Come back…

I think of you
I keep thinking of you
We no longer can hold hands like before
I liked you so much
To the point I can’t forget anything about you
And this is the song that will hold you back.

The familiar hands of yours pushed me away
What do I do…
What do I do…

Even today, I’m still missing your presence
I still love you
What do I do…
What do I do…

You’re looking at me again with the old looks in your eyes
Those eyes
Wants to tell me something
That you still love me

The familiar hands of yours pushed me away
What do I do…
What do I do…

Even today, i’m still missing your presence
What do I do…
What do I do…
Please…
Oh please…
I love you…

Love Song / A Song That Will Hold You Back 널 붙잡을 노래  – Hangeul

오늘도 서성이는 너의집 화가나는걸
나 는 힘든데 나는 힘든데 이렇게

하 지만 나는 어쩔 수 없어
니 맘을 돌리긴 너무 늦은걸
끝나버렸어 어쩔 수 없어 이젠

한 순간 내 몸에 익숙했던 니 손이
날 밀어내 나는 어떡해 나는 어떡해
어느덧 떠나간 너의 숨결
아직도 널 사랑해
나 는 어떡해 나는 어떡해
제발 오 제발 돌아와

난 니가 생각나 자꾸만 생각나
예전처럼 니 손 잡을 수가 없어
난 니가 너무 좋아서
너의 모든걸 못잊어
이 노래는 널 붙잡을 수 있는노래
한 순간 내 몸에 익숙했던 니 손이
날 밀어내 나는 어떡해 나는 어떡해
어 느덧 떠나간 너의 숨결
아직도 널 사랑해
나는 어떡해 나는 어떡해
나와 마주치던 그 눈빛으로
그 냥 나를 다시봐요 그 눈빛
내게 말을해줄래 아직도 사랑한다고
한 순간 내 몸에 익숙했던 니 손이
날 밀어내 나는 어떡해 나는 어떡해
어느덧 떠나간 너의 숨결
아 직도 널 사랑해
나는 어떡해 나는 어떡해
제발 오 제발 사랑해

Rain on Discovery Channel

I liked Rain (Bi) eversince I saw his drama Full House. From that time I watched most of his dramas and I listened to his songs. He is one of the best Korean dancers. And, to me he is one of the Korean artists I look forward to hearing news from.

normal_bi_1

One of the recent news about Rain (which I know most Rain fans will be excited about) is that he will be featured on Discovery Channel. So for Rain fans who have cable TV, the date to watch out for is Feb. 23 (it will be shown all over Asia). Rain will be featured in a documentary which portays Rain as symbol of Korean pop culture that has flourished in the past decade. The special program will be called “Hip Korea”. According to the article I saw, this show focuses on the popularity of Korean pop culture and Rain is being featured as he is a “Korean cultural icon who appeals to worldwide audiences”.

I’ll try to see if I can catch this show! But kudos to Rain!!

By the way I also read somewhere that when Rain promotes in the States, he will not be using the name Rain since there is a Beatles tribute band who uses that name. He will instead use the name “The Rain” for promotions — sounds a little weird :D. I’ll forgot where I read that article, I’ll try to post it if I can find it..

Love Story (English version) – Rain

This is the English version of Rain’s Love Story that I was talking about. I usually see this version when I watch channel V. And I have to say, I could understand Rain’s english 😀 ehehehe

Love Story – Rain (English Version)

Oh Baby there’s something’s that I have to tell you bout
Can’t hold it in my heart
All this pain is breakin’ me down
Thought I found my one true love
Couldn’t show you how I feel
I was stupid baby my pride wouldn’t let me be real

I’m asking for one more chance
Didn’t know where you stand or
What your feelings demanded from me

I pleaded your wouldn’t pass
You left me out in the rain
when you just walked away

This song is a story of a true tragedy
I gave up my heart
I tried to give you all of me
We’ve come to the ending somehow
I don’t know what to do

But I don’t wanna forget now
I love you baby, I still love you

This is the sound of honesty
I gave up my heart
I tried to be all I could be

My heart gonna wait forever
I’m still holding on to
All of our moments together
I love you baby, I still love you

We were so much in love
Tell me how could you forget
Wish you were here with me but
Memories are all I have left

It seems the promises
that you made to me were nothing
And you smile girl but I see your hurt within

I’m asking for one more chance
Baby give me your hand
So we can both understand this love
I pleaded your love wouldn’t pass
all the pieces of my soul
want to live in your heart

This is the story of a true love tragedy
I gave up my heart
I tried to give you all of me
We’ve come to the ending somehow
I don’t know what to do
But I don’t wanna forget now
I love you baby, I still love you

This is the sound of honesty
I gave up my heart
I tried to be all I could be
My heart gonna wait forever
I’m still holding on to
All of our moments together
I love you baby, I still love you

Gotta close the door
Just like you did before
See my heart is broken
Baby I can’t do it no more

Even though it hurts
I’ll make a brand new start
And lay the rest all the moments
That played with my heart

But just before I do
I gotta let you know that
No man will love you more
So baby never forget

Listen, I’m without you
All I know is right now
I love, I’ll always love you

This is the story of a true love tragedy
I gave up my heart
I tried to give you all of me

We’ve come to the ending somehow
I don’t know what to do
But I don’t wanna forget now
I love you baby, I still love you

This is the sound of honesty
I gave up my heart
I tried to be all I could be
My heart gonna wait forever
I’m still holding on to
All of our moments together
I love you , I will always love you, yeah

Love Story – Rain

Rain came up with an album last year. The first single he released from his Rainism album was a song entitled Love Story. Its a slow song which tells of person’s love story. From what I read, Rain was the one who wrote this song and it apparently tells something about his own love story. The video starred Ha Ji Won (Hwang Jin Yi and What Happened in Bali). The video tells of a story of a man who falls in love a woman who was the girlfriend of  a ganster. I think Rain looks cute in this video, I especially love the part where he is admiring his scooter. There is an english and chinese version of this song. I will be posting the English version later. I love the Korean version though, I think among the versions, I think that’s the best.

Love Story – Rain (Translation)

Hey
This is my story
It’s true
OK, listen..

Oh baby…words that wanted to say to you
The words that made me sad in my heart
Even though we fell in love very much
But cannot overcome that reason
Like a fool cannot send any words
Give me one more chance
I don’t know
Did your heart changed?
Is not too late right?
Prayed but you turned away coldly

This song is a true love story
My story that I risked everything on
But it’s the end, everything is over now
This is my past love
I love you, I still love you

Oh….is possible to forget loved you
The love that’s in my memory
You left me and all the promises you made with me is nothing
You smiled while telling my story

My heartache like I’m dying, oh no…
If only one time, only to be with you
My heart may not rest
Wish you is my everything

This song is a true love story
My story that I risked everything on
But it’s the end, everything is over now
This is my past love
I love you, I still love you

The real sound from my heart
If I give all my guarantees
Will forever waiting for you to come back to me
I love you, I still love you

I also forget fist
My heart is breaking
Therefore very painful but should break
The hate and all the innermost feeling of you
But still recalling
The man that can give you hug appeared right?
Now everything can be settle without you
Now listen to this song
This song is to your love story
Give it all my sentiment
Not regretting
I forget you now

This is my past love
I love you, I still love you

Listen to your voice for the last time
All my shout
If you heard it please come back to me again
Love you forever
I love you, only love you

Baby, please come back to me
Miss you baby
