Ever since Ninja Assassin has come out (and a bit before), people around me keep looking at me and saying, “You know who’s in it? Rain, the Korean pop star!” Sometimes it will even be with people I thought were unaware of my obsession. Oops. I guess the secret is out of the bag! I love me some Kpop.
Anyway, it got me thinking. Right now, I’ve just been nodding and talking about how multi-talented Rain is. I mean, he is, right? He sings, dances, acts, produces, has his own clothing line… and more, I’m sure that I can’t even think of off the top of my head. GENIUS/INSANE?/HOT (unrelated, but still true)/RAAAAIN. But what if I started showing people Rain’s most recent music endeavors? I don’t think “Rainism” was a bad album at all, but the SONG “Rainism” still makes me giggle (as catchy as it is). BODY SHAKE! I just rewatched the performance for the first time in forever and the person in me who is used to Kpop doesn’t flinch, but if I imagine Kpop noobs watching it… well, it might not be pretty. Don’t lie! You know they’d laugh and wouldn’t understand.
SO. I started thinking. What would I replace “Rainism” with? If I’m looking for a song that is on the same level (i.e. not something “deep” or even a ballad), what would I choose? I can’t decide right now. That’s why I’m posting! I thought I would ask what you thought.
Even if you love Rainism, find a match for it that is more “American” friendly. I know that I got into Kpop for the campy stuff (I’m more discerning now!), but not everyone thinks the way I do. My brain is so fried from studying (why is my school so cruel? IT’S THANKSGIVING BREAK! NOT “BREAK-THE-FANGIRL”!), so I thought it would be fun to do something silly like this.
