Fangirl Confessional: Forever Jung At Heart

GO and Rain

I think I am suffering from “Double Jung Syndrome.” You know that uncontrollable and feverish urge to love on two Jungs at once? Yes, I am here to set the record straight on my fan girl affliction mostly because I have been living with the fear of being ostracized by the Cloud (Rain’s fans are called ‘Clouds’) community for showering my love, affection and attention on another Jung besides Jung Ji Hoon – Jung Byung Hee (also known as G.O, main vocalist for MBLAQ).

K-Shot Postscript: [images] Let The Promo Games Begin – SBS Radio PowerFM Cultwo Show (1/2/2014)

When you love what you do, it shows. It really, really shows. And this guy right here, well he LOVES what he does. Within two (yes, TWO) short hours of his hot new album, Rain Effect, dropping on us all like a torrential Rain (pun intended), our handsome (and hard-working) World Star made his way promptly to the SBS radio studios in Seoul to make an appearance on the PowerFM Cultwo Show on January 2, 2014. And he certainly remembered to bring a few things.

The smile.

The charm.

The playfulness.

The playfulness. Again.

The performance.

And…more playfulness. Aieeeesh!  This man!!

K-Shot Postscript: The Return of Rain 비 – It’s Raining MVs

Screen Shot 2014-01-01 at 9.38.43 PM

At precisely 12:00 PM Korean Standard Time on January 2, 2014, there was a downpour of Rain that I could not have been possibly prepared for. I only have three words:  Rain. Is. Back.

G.O (Jung Byung Hee)

tumblr_lmj2siYBwE1qcgayao1_500

When I decided upon one of the MBLAQ boys as my next K-Shot, I thought I would have immediately gone straight to Yang Seung Ho who I always felt was my favorite. And true, I could have chosen any one of the members as they all have that special something. If they didn’t, Rain would not have singled them out and groomed them as he did, right? Then I watched the Cry MV and G.O just did me in and promptly stole me away from Seung Ho. In my opinion, he has a lot of Rain quality about him. The way he moves, the way he plays to the camera, the way he delivers a song – all reminiscent of Rain. Furthermore, I think he resembles Rain very much. And, G.O is sexy. And so, of the five that could have made their way here, it is G.O who out-ranked the rest as my next K-Shot of Hot. ♥

[series] Rain’s World of Endorsements: Kyochon Fried Charm – Kyochon Chicken

It is an undisputed fact that Rain loves food. If we weren’t sure, we certainly got confirmation during the first episode of his reality show, The Rain Effect where food was basically a part of the supporting cast! I LOVE that he loves food, seems to think about it often, and goes to great lengths to find something delicious to satisfy his palate.

This love of cuisine translates perfectly to the various commercial films he has made throughout the early part of his career that endorsed some kind of food or beverage product. He always seems so delighted to promote food!

Kyochon Chicken is one of the largest Korean fried chicken chain restaurants in South Korea and even has locations in the US. This must be some serious chicken. ^.^

And for Rain’s part in the endorsement, I am truly amused by the dichotomy…

[series] Rain’s World of Endorsements: Body Built By Bibimbap – GrEAT Korea

I think it is safe to say that of the many characteristics we all find so endearing about Rain, his genuine love of food is perhaps one of the favorites.

It no surprise then when we catch him in food-oriented commercial films. As I progress with this series, I am finding that the food CFs top my list as most enjoyable (and definitely where he rocks the cuteness to the nth degree). Rain does not need to act or feign enjoyment of eating. This is a true pleasure for him.

The Korea Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries let the splendor of Korea’s landscape collide with tasty Korean cuisine then added that special ingredient: Rain, for their GrEAT Korea campaign. The level of delicious is probably beyond that which any taste bud could reasonably tolerate!

Surely the delectable shots of the those fabulous…
