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).

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…

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!

Zepp Tokyo – My Evening With Rain: Round Four (The Final Round)

Zepp T Superdog3

Thursday, November 28, 2013

All good things must come to an end. I know dear Rain was most probably exhausted by this the 10th and final show of his Zepp Tour but the man was still overflowing with so much energy, verve, swag and smiles. I was filled with a mix of excitement and sadness as I made my way to the venue. I knew I was not going to want the evening to end.

Cantavil3

When Korean corporation Daewon Company partnered with Vietnam’s Thu Duc Housing Development Corporation, the Cantavil Premier Apartments were born in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.  New, modern, and high-tech, this new development offered a plethora of amenities if you chose to live in one of its exquisitely designed and architecturally harmonious apartments.  Complete with a Lotte Modern Cineplex, the Cantavil Premier had it all.  And they had one very famous world star to tell you all about it.

Rain just oozes style and class.  So he was the perfect spokesperson for a new and classy housing development.  He happens to be one architecturally harmonious human who wears a suit like it was born into creation and designed solely for him.  See if you can catch that Yves Saint Laurent belt buckle. Hot.
