Rain vs. B-Boys in latest Samsung Anycall CF

The Energizer Bunny and his gang launch into a dance battle with a team of B-Boys who kick their @s$e$...but wait, we're talking about Rain here. Things wouldn't be complete if he doesn't bounce back - better than before.

Close: Me and my Samsung

That's the premise of Rain's brand new Samsung Anycall music video, which is about working hard to achieve one's dream -- Any Dream. The MV will be edited into a 15-second commercial clip to be aired in conjunction with the 2008 Beijing Olympics!

Rain sings in Mandarin and speaks, like, one line in Mandarin.

Currently, there are two versions of the MV at YouTube - the full version (8:26) and short version (4:24). As a Rain fan, I found the full version a little too long and boring, the song's so-so and isn't memorable.

The fun bits, which are available in the short version as well (above), is when the defeated Rain forms a new dance group...and the people who sign up are dancers wannabe from various backgrounds - a chef & a wage earner - to name a few.

However, under the tutelage of Rain and the talent of the only girl in the group, who also happens to be a gymnast, the motley crew may have a fighting chance at winning the upcoming dance-off. Whoo-hoo.

The Samsung phone plays a vital part in the formation of the group as the Energizer Bunny uses it to capture pictures of his dance members, use it show his team new dance moves as well as to play music from the phone.

Bah, words, words, words...please watch the video, which is directed by Jang Jae-hyuk (helmer of It's Raining MV), and tell me what you think of it?

The edited 15-second clip will go on air nationwide in China and Hong Kong in April. Once Bi wraps up Ninja Assassin (which we think is Ninja Scroll, hee hee), he will visit China in mid-August to take part in Olympic-related events.

the best part of the whole thing was Bi's hair esp in the beginning when there's that closeup and it's all big and fluffy and curly! LMAO that is hilarious!
I am sooo waiting for the HD version to come out (if it ever does) cuz I think lq doesn't do it justice. It is kinda boring though. But's its amusing to hear Bi speak chinese :)

Is director Jang also the one who directed Sad Tango and I'm Coming ?
I thought I heard rain saying on Making the Video of I'm Coming that it was the 3rd time he was collaborating with the same director after making It's Raining and Sad Tango

I watched the 8 min one first which was truly excrutiating....the 4 min clip moves much faster. I wish they had shown a few more shots of actual dancing tho, instead of zooming crazily in and out making it kind of hard to see anything.

The gymnast girl looks sweet, I wonder who she is (I bet she is getting tons of exposure with this clip ^_^).
