Bi (Rain) – LA Song / 30Sexy

Rain is back from his military service — two years from the Korean music scene seems like forever and always, even though we all waited much longer for Hyori to come back [1][2][3][4][5].

Did he meet my expectations? I do think that the main single 30SEXY [MV] is a bit tacky (‘coz I’m 30 sexy, girl), and sounds a bit too much like a mish-mash of Justin Timberlake. In a world of Niliria [clip], Ringa Linga [MV], boom shaka lakas, and Doom Dada [MV] though, I’m kinda giddy that this is a la-la-la-la-la kinda song.

It does make me want to swing and raise my hands up. The only questionable section in the music video is the bit where Rain whispers something into a Black woman’s ear, next thing you know her shadow’s badunkadunk grows a size. WHAT? WHY?

Both songs, LA Song and 30Sexy, are included in Rain’s new album titled Rain Effect, which is supposed to be released already.
