Oh, wwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh. I, along with a bajillion Rain fans, are extra-special sadfaced that the superstar South Korean heartthrob, actor, and Stephen Colbert dance-off rival has finally been conscripted for his mandatory two-year bid in the army.
While part of me is a bit starry-eyed at the prospect of HARD-CORE military training and its effect on what is already a siiiiiiick ripped physique (your boy has 0.0002 percent body fat in Ninja Assassin), I can't even deal to think that his hair will be all Jarhead short, even if I'm totally mixing idioms because I think that only applies to Navy dudes (UGH, whatever, it's like sports, ALL THE SAME). And I won't get to see him dance (haha, just thought of that awesome YouTube of those dudes pop-locking in the Korean demilitarized zone). BUT even more is that we won't get to see him in beautiful suits for all his various fashion editorials.
I mean, REMEMBER THIS?
From our Hot Dude Of The Day: Rain Travels Around The World With Dapper MCM Accessories post? COME ON (and I can say this ABOVE reproach because I am Korean...) isn't this *spirit fingers at the all-monogrammed goodness below* ENOUGH WORK FOR OUR COUNTRY? Sigh. NORTH KOREA, YOU'D BETTER NOT WILD OUT WHILE THIS INCREDIBLE SPECIMEN IS ON CALL. Imma be pissed.
Rain for MCM.
