The Evolution of Bi

Vol. 1- “Bad Man”

What is the “bad man” trying to run away from? His captors, loan sharks, or simply… bad hair? None of the above. He is “running away from the sun”…

Vol. 2- “How to Escape from the Sun”

I love the guitar intro. This is one of my most favorite songs.

With the success of his two previous albums and a hit television drama (Full House), Bi’s popularity is soaring. He’s so famous that in order to avoid the lenses of paparazzi, he uses a big rig truck as a mode of transportation to his concert. He wears a long fur coat to represent his status, wealth, and spite for little furry animals. (Okay, perhaps no to the last one..) At his performance, people are chanting his name, “Rain, go Rain. It’s raining!”

Vol. 3- “It’s Raining”

Japan, are you ready? Here I come!

Special thanks to Lanice for uploading the MVs and subbing teams for the subtitles.

Weather forecast: Rain in the USA?

Rain is going to release his 5th album (World Wide version) in the 2nd half of 2007, mainly targeting at USA and the rest of the world.

According to Rain’s recent interview by Starnews, “5th album will be released next year as world wide version, as it’s part of the plan to enter USA market…” “Mini concerts will be held to release of new songs, and combined with World Wide…. The event(s) shall be organised in S. Korea and other countries…” Rain added, “The initial stage of brain-storming for 5th album was completed..” So let’s look forward to it.

Rain also mentioned that this album mainly includes English songs so that it can be simultaneously released in S. Korea and overseas markets. It is a totally different concept compared to License Album. “Like what I normally did in the past: Conceptualization for 4th album was done during the release of 3rd album… Therefore we have the ideas for next album after the release of 4th album.” said Rain.

Rain’s World was officially released on Oct 13, and created 100,000 copies of sales record in first day! The figure is still going up indeed. In the meantime, Rain began his publicity activities from MBC SHOW! Music Centre on Oct 14.

doozy: This new album concept of Bi being a some sort of supernatural god/superhero who is going to save the world from death and destruction is… a little over-the-top. And what is with this military theme? He’s trying to expand global, especially into the US music industry, but with the current political situation with the war and all, is this new image/concept going to help or hurt his goals?
Appearance-wise, he looks great! I like the new haircut and love the tanned, well-built body.
Music-wise, from the several songs that I’ve heard, it’s okay. I prefer “It’s Raining” over “I’m Coming.” Although “Move On” is a good song, I still like his previous albums more.
In any case, I wish him the best of success in his quest for “global domination!”

TVXQ Member Recovers from Poisoning


Yuno-yunho, a member of the boy-band TVXQ (a.k.a. DBSG) who drank a beverage containing a harmful substance on October 14 that he received from an unidentified woman, received medical attention and is currently recovering.

The group’s agency, SM Entertainment, said that Yuno-yunho received emergency treatment at St. Mary’s Hospital in Seoul and underwent a health checkup at another hospital later. The diagnosis is yet to be released but the singer is apparently doing fine. His manager, who was with him when the incident occurred, helped him vomit the drink immediately.

Yuno-yunho rested until October 15 and in the afternoon of that day cooperated with police in identifying the suspect.

Aside from the poisoned beverage, the singer also received a letter from the suspect warning him to “watch his mouth” and that “many people switch channels when TVXQ appears on TV.” The letter also called the band “arrogant” and sounded threatening. All members of the group were shocked by the incident because it apparently targeted the entire group.

TVXQ will appear on TV shows without Yuno-yunho for the time being, as it is unable to cancel its scheduled activities at this point. The group will sing its song “I’ll Be There” instead of the title song of its just-released album, because it is easier to replace Yuno-yunho in that song.
