The Fangirl Lane


The Back Up Dancer That Could

I know that this is going to come as no surprise, but I woke this morning thinking about Rain.  I was thinking how awesome it must be that he finally completed his military service and that he is able to enjoy his time exactly the way he wants to enjoy it.  I was thinking about how hard he has worked to get where he is today and how his rise to fame was no easy task.  Of course, I am ALWAYS thinking about how handsome he is and how his beauty both inside and out just takes my breath away.

Then I remembered this video.  He was only a back up dancer at this point and this only a rehearsal,  yet all the signs were there of what was to unfold.

When I watch Rain in these early clips, I am constantly reminded of how he performs from somewhere deep within himself and how he never fails to give 200%, even when just a back up dancer.   So, I wanted to come here to share it even though I am quite sure every Rain fangirl out there has seen it (and likely more than once)!  It is still a potent reminder of his incredible talent and that his hunger to succeed and be the best is a constant source of inspiration not only to himself, but to many of us who admire him so much.  Dance on, Rain….

Today I actually eased into the day slowly trying to get my footing in this new time zone.  I am finally feeling acclimated.  I am definitely becoming a K-Metro pro but have to say that this is perhaps the easiest public transportation situation ever.  And the Metro stations are like little villages all unto themselves.  You never know what you will find.  I got duly sidetracked today by a Nature Republic store at the Express Bus Terminal stop.  Skin care is a big deal here and admittedly I would have never known about this company had Rain not lent himself to advertise for them.  Take a moment and sigh with me…..

 Really though, I was on a mission to find more vegan food.
