World star Rain (his real name is ‘Jung Ji Hoon’) is on every idol group’s lips, despite
serving in the military.
Pop group ‘B2B’ trained by Cube Entertainment, who aims to become a global group,
considers Rain to be an object of admiration to the group.
‘Chang Seop’, a member of the group, said on its first debut stage during a showcase
held at hotel Marriot in Soeul’s Banpo district on the 21st, “When I was exhausted and
had a hard time while practicing my songs and dances, I endured difficulties, chewing
over what Rain had said. He is my hero and a compass of my life.”
Rain’s words “If your life is compared to a road, now there’s just a traffic jam down the
road for a moment. You’ll drive along the highway some time or another.” are most
strongly impressed on Chang Seop’s memory.
That is what Rain said at his last concert before his enlistment last September, and he
sang “My Way” which says, “I’ll go my way as always.” after he said it.
‘Chang Seop’ kept lavishing praise on Rain, “When I learned to dance first, I looked only
for overseas artist’s videos and watched them, but Rain’s Rainism took my breath away
the moment I unconsciously saw it.
When I saw his Rainism, I learned more than I would have learned through overseas
His eyes taking a person’s breath away and masculine appeal gave me a refreshing jolt
and a cultural shock. Except his performance, I now know that he has given us numerous
meaningful lessons about life.
Writing his good words on post-it notes and sticking them to one space on my desk,
I would fix those words in my mind. Rain is still an object of admiration to me, and I hold
him in respect and want to be like him.” ‘Chang Seop’ clenched his fists, saying so.
B2B who brought who it is under the notice of the public through the showcase, will
release its first album on the 22nd and make its debut on Mnet TV’s Mcountdown on the
