The photos were expected as Baekga (photoby100) gave hints about him and Rain heading to New York for what looked like a photo shoot.
But we were surprised that it was for Harper's Bazaar magazine. Furthermore, what we didn't see coming is Rain on Bazaar Men Style magazine, too.
For Harper's Bazaar Korea, Rain wore the clothing brand H&M and the theme of the photos was City Ranger. Photo credits: http://www.imagazinekorea.com/
Commendation goes to the photographer Baekga and his staff for great photos! It is very chic, the angles are at its best, and the lighting is perfect. All the elements complement the subject. The setting is very fitting to the theme. What better place to shoot than in New York!
Here is the making of the City Ranger photo shoot:

Now four months later, we see him donning the collection with a short interview....
And here are my favorites from both magazines:
Handsome. Stylish. Gorgeous. Rain is at his best fashionable self. It is very clear that is comfortable on camera. May it be on video or stills, our man proves his prowess as a model. Whatever brands he wears and styles he chooses, Rain knows how to make it work.
