The former king of K-pop’s latest show scores highly for originality
Rain ‘The Squall’
If show names are anything to go by, the former king of K-pop’s upcoming tour stands to be a massive hit.
As for originality and cleverness, it won’t be difficult to top The Best Show or even Rain’s Coming – he’s already done that with The Squall – but it will be difficult to outdo the raw theatrics of his previous concerts, which have commonly featured a shirtless and water-drenched Rain on all fours.
