Rain tells you his LOVE STORY in English!

The English version of Rain's 5th album (Rainism) ballad Love Story is out!

This seems surreal to me. It's been what i've been waiting for - to be able to understand words that come out from Rain's lips - without needing any subbing/ translation. Okay, let me dwell on this for awhile. Sigh. [ Orchid is happy ]

Okay, where was i...yeah the English version is nice. The lyrics are pretty good and not tacky. But i do still love the original Korean version.

Check it out here!



Which version of Love Story do you like more?

Update (Dec 15, 2008):

Rain has produced Japanese, Chinese and English versions of Rainism and Love Story for the Rainism Asian Album. The Japanese release contains the original 13 songs from the original Korean album and the 2 additional Japanese versions - check hmv.co.jp
The Taiwan version is supposed to have both English and Chinese versions ie. 13 + 4 additional songs.

i'm pleasantly surprised that the english lyrics aren't bad..quite good actually. i'm so used to enjoying a song in it's original language but then it all goes to sh*t when it gets translated to english. i still can't understand his pronunciation of some words so i love how there are english subs for this english version! :P

@shinta, I actually heard it through the Chinese radio station here in Malaysia, MyFM about 2 weeks ago. I'm not that surprise though as Rain is really big in this country...so that's it, i never go search any further ^^

A commendable effort but I still prefer the original Korean version. Now I just gotta wait for the cringeworthy mandarin version = D
