Rain is laid back and fashion-forward for May's CosmoMen
The May 2016 issue of CosmoMen is about to hit South Korean newsstands, and the new cover and feature belong to guess who! Entertainer Rain (a.k.a. Jung Ji Hoon)! Fresh from wrapping up his latest Korean TV drama Please Come Back, Mister, the busy megastar looks both comfortable and on the edge of fashion in attire from the Spring/Summer collections of several top designers.
Check out the photo shoot at the Keats Hotel in Itaewon. Rain sure knows how to give you face.
Cosmopolitan Korea purposely named the photo shoot "Man in the Mirror" in reference to the late Michael Jackson's song of the same name. It also references how taking account of himself (starting with the "man in the mirror") throughout his career has been an important part of Rain's inner growth.

Some of the things Rain talks about in the article are 1) how he slept only 2 - 3 hours during the last 4 days of Please Come Back, Mister filming, 2) how he chose that script because he wanted to do a heartfelt drama that explored the realities of human nature and left viewers with a good message, 3) how he truly enjoyed doing the drama, 4) how his schedule is such a killer that he has to laugh sometimes, 5) memories of his late mother, and 6) what is truly important in life.

When new Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter fashion collections drop every year, I have to say that a lot of them really aren't my particular cup of tea. But I also have to say that whether I like the clothes or not, Rain's physique is always the perfect clothes hanger for 99.999999999999% of them.
(That big deer kind of creeped me out, though. I kept waiting for it to move or something... LOL)
