A fan-account about Rain in Dresden.
Well here is my fan account of what happened at the photo-call in the Kempinski hotel. I know that some fangirls got to meet Rain while he was out shopping. You lucky girls!
I want to first thank Lars for letting me post this on his blog. I can’t post this on YAM and I don’t have a blog of my own. So thank you for letting me borrow yours Lars!
I can start off by saying that Rain is so beautiful live it hurts. I bet that all of those lucky enough to be able to sit close to the stage at the Semper Opera could see. His skin is so smooth and it glows, he is as you see him on pictures. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
Me and Dani were invited to the photo-call on the morning of the concert. We were there representing YAM magazine (www.yam-mag.com).
I was hoping to get an interview, albeit short with Rain, but it was clear that it wasn’t going to happen. I did get an interview with Vogler so that is all fine.
Well, me and Dani got to the hotel in where the photo-call was going to be held early and we were just waiting. Suddenly all the photographers arrived to the suite and Sung-Joong Kim came in to the room. She is the woman responsible for the creation of this collaboration, as being friends with both Rain and Vogler and the one that suggested they meet.
Lounging and mingling, we were waiting for Rain and Vogler to arrive when a very panicked Korean girl burst in to the room: ”He is here, he is here. Rain is here” she exclaimed. I stood up a little straighter, made sure to stand as close to the door as possible. I swear, the aura in the room changed, I felt the floor shake and in came Rain. He seemed to be in a hurry, he got in to the suite and was ushered to a side room. Behind him came his entourage, and I must say that it must be the best well-dressed entourage I have ever seen. I think they were 7 people in total. He had his own photographer and video-recording guy…. so classy Rain.
So, while Vogler arrived and the photo session started in honest we are taking pictures, I feel this heat behind me and there He is. You can see the fancam from the photo-call here.
I don’t think I need to explain more from what happened at the photo-call. When it was over we were ushered out because Rain and Vogler were to have an interview with a news channel.
We went out to the corridor and were just standing there waiting. Suddenly Rain comes rushing out of the suite. OK, so this is going to sound a bit nuts and confusing but bare with me because I’m not really sure what happened. I was standing against the wall on the corridor. So Rain storms out right? All I can focus in is his beautiful face.
The corridor was a bit small and both me and Dani where standing on each of it’s walls so it was even smaller. When Rain came out of the suite so suddenly, I couldn’t tell where the heck he was going. Beside me was the opening to go out of the corridor. It seemed as he was going that way, so I moved, I don’t even know why because my body went on pure instinct here. I think my movement confused Rain because he tried to avoid me but then I moved again and them BAM! I am suddenly in Rain’s embrace. Praise the lord, sweet-Jesus and the holy Mary, full body-contact with his face hovering near mine. Mind you, I had to look up, he is that tall.
Well, it took like five seconds. Rain said “sorry”, “excuse me” looked me deep in the eyes, gave me a small smile and then he was off. Dayum that boy is agile as hell. The crash was sudden yet smooth….. woah.
Anyway, he leaves me (very swooned) and starts walking to the end of the corridor. Dani gives me a stink-face and calls me an idiot. I give her a troll-face and tell her that I’m no fool, that was so intentional. Which it really wasn’t, not from my brain at least. My body just reacted. A perfect trip-fall (invisible rock ftw! It has been used on Nickhun before and it always works!) as my dear friends in twitter call it.
Back to Rain, well he walked to the end of the corridor. I thought he was going to his room so I was cranking my neck to see which room it was (hurr hurr hurr). But he was standing there and seemed nervous or bothered, couldn’t really tell. Three of his men were with him and they were talking. We could see Rain talking very agitated and his crew trying to call him down. No idea what happened. To be a Korean speaking fly just then!
Me and Dani got a little worried and almost wanted to go there and ask him if he needed something to call himself down (which I had because mind you, I have met Korean idols before and I know how well I can get overly spazzy about it. I need medicine to calm the fuck down).
When I am about to go up there (crazy and delusional as I am) Rain comes back out. The man has his game face on and he starts to straight his suit. He gives Dani the greatest derp face ever and goes back in to the suite.
At this moment I was in the phone with Cissi, I had to brag about my contact with Rain so I missed to film him as he walked back in to the suite. I only have a fail fancam of his chin passing me haha.
Back to waiting, I was again in the phone with Cissi so I again missed the opportunity to film Rain. This time he comes out and before he disappears bows to us and thanks us. Oh la la la.
He then ran down the stairs, looked like he had someone following him. So stressed the poor thing.
I think in all we spent like 15 minutes in Rain’s presence. He seemed so humble during the photo call, like he was a bit nervous. But he owned the stage on the Semper opera later that night. Dayum what stage presence that man has. He had all the fangirls at his mercy. One of the best concerts I have seen for sure. But there is no need for me to write about it when I can let the fan cams speak for themselves. In all I recorded all of Rain’s performances (sorry Vogler!). So enjoy!
