This opening is probably one of the most famous openings in a Kpop song. If you were alive in Korea in the early 2000s, chances are you know this choreography.

Originally, Rain couldn't get hired by any entertainment agencies because he "didn't have double eyelids." He was told if he got plastic surgery he would be a star instantly because of his talents, but her refused.
Eventually, JYP hired him after JYP himself loved his drive and passion. After his debut he began to see lots of success. Rain was actually named one of the world's top influential people in Time Magazine back in 2006.
He later moved into acting and has seen a lot of success there.
He left the army in 2013 and is now under a subgroup of Cube. He also started J.Tune, the company behind MBLAQ! Let me know if you'd like me to do more Kpop history lessons!
