Rainbow also appeared on Beatles Code recently. A long video series but funny and informative. Watch the video on Youtube to find parts 2-4; I don't want to bog down your computers with too many videos. 

Some other random tidbits: Jaekyung is set to appear on Laws of the Jungle W on 11/23, Rainbow said they'll be back with a new album in 2013, and their total physical sales in Japan and Korea thus far are around 160K. 

Edit: Some more recent pics

Haven't posted anything on here in months so I hope I did it right. Anyway, congratulations Rainbow =D

hopefully DSP is nice enough to give them a single before disbanding them for Puretty.
rosamajalis 14th-Nov-2012 04:35 am (UTC)
Yay, Rainbow! I hope DSP lets them out of the basement sometime soon.
realme21 14th-Nov-2012 04:38 am (UTC)
No one really cares about this group I thought they are nugus
pineapple_soda 14th-Nov-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
i need them to have a comeback soon
lazmy 14th-Nov-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
they were great but then their company forgot about them
zhexuejia 14th-Nov-2012 04:50 am (UTC)
Seungah looks so good in Romantic & Idol so she doesn't look like a soccer mom anymore.

Comeback please.
asnindie 14th-Nov-2012 04:52 am (UTC)
DSP what are you doing. You had momentum with To Me so why did you just forget them>_>

sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:46 am (UTC)
In all honesty, part of it was their Japanese debut and part probably was Kara's dispute being resolved. Dunno what their management was thinking with Pixie. The idea of a subunit is excellent, but that concept was not. Something Rainbow is critiqued on is being to similar to other groups, and a lot of that rests on who DSP hires to do things like production, styling, choreography.

The girls just need to make their own songs or lyrics at least.
okadarei 14th-Nov-2012 01:53 pm (UTC)
I do agree. They had their momentum, they did a repackage with Sweet Dream, but they kind of lost it insisting in Japan. Is not like they did too bad in Japan, but so many groups were already going there.

Also the sub-unit could've been an excelent idea, but it didn't work out. Personally, I liked the looks but not the music for that Pixie thing. Also, having such a group be out of the game for a whole year is wrong.

It's a pity, because out of most of the groups with more than 5 members, they do really seem to be close.
lysblack 14th-Nov-2012 05:02 am (UTC)
i love them so much and hate dsp just as hard.
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:44 am (UTC)
DSP is okay, they could be part of a worst company. And they really do like the office people they work with, ya know the ones who get the packages and stuff and deliver it to them.

i suppose DSP's problem is the opposite of other companies. They don't have enough for Rainbow to do, in terms of music. 3 years and no Korean studio album is sad. Although it is good their discography has longevity.

Even so, I am happy Rainbow has plenty of time off and a decent dorm. Now a new album would be nice. It's kinda funny, since even the members themselves talk about their lack of activity.
bumie 14th-Nov-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
they need a comeback
diligentsesame 14th-Nov-2012 05:23 am (UTC)
Never hated DSP more for shafting these girls. Love them, hope to see them make a comeback next year!
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:09 am (UTC)
I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by a lot of money going to waste. In the year they have been there they have over 100K in sales and have done well on the digital charts. Gonna Gonna Go was one of the most requested kpop songs in Japan, and their PV for Candy Girls was in the top 5 for iTunes Japan and ranked in the Top 20 on recochoku.

Well they aren't huge in japan, but should have done well enough to recoup some of cost for DSP. I do see what you're saying about 9muses and Sweetune. I don't get what you mean about Sweetune giving up on them tho. Rainbow's last comeback was during Kara's lawsuit, and Sweetune said they wouldn't work with anyone until it was resolved, hence why they worked with Daishi Dance.
jongkeyisreal 14th-Nov-2012 05:32 am (UTC)
dsp da fuq are you doing. we need a comeback
hipployta 14th-Nov-2012 05:53 am (UTC)
This causes a similar reaction to their 1000th day post...they've been around for 3 years?
eebaboya 14th-Nov-2012 06:30 am (UTC)
i feel sorry for them. The venue that they were performing "To me" looked pretty empty.

vagueclarity 14th-Nov-2012 07:07 am (UTC)
ohmygoodness when they zoomed out there's a bunch of empty seats D: around 1:40ish and sporadically throughout :/ :/ :/
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:39 am (UTC)
It was for that Kpop Cover Dance Contest so not surprised. They were just a special performance.
goshipgurl 14th-Nov-2012 06:33 am (UTC)
I think they're having a comeback pretty soon cause they posted pics that looked like it was from the set of their comeback photoshoot a few days ago
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:41 am (UTC)
I think those were for a sponsor thing most likely. But we never know.
pivotandsway 14th-Nov-2012 06:39 am (UTC)
I hope their 4th year is more active than this past one. I really want them to be successful or at least putting out music semi-regularly.
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:56 am (UTC)
I wonder if next year will be less swamped than this past one. So many debuts and comebacks crowded the stage.
vagueclarity 14th-Nov-2012 07:03 am (UTC)
wait. they've been here for three years?

also what kind of fanclub name is rainnous? o_O someone please explain
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:40 am (UTC)
It's a portmanteau of "Rainbow" and "Luminous".
sergel02 14th-Nov-2012 07:53 am (UTC)
Added a couple more pics. They celebrated by having dinner together it seems.

And no one is commenting about SeungA and JB =(
That was my main reason for making this post lol
She'll probably end up with Mir next week anyway tho.

I hope they have Pixie promote singles for the album in between in the future. I'll just have to wait for their comeback when it comes, but i'll probably rage hard if it isn't a full-length album.

rachellovee 15th-Nov-2012 03:17 am (UTC)
op, do you have any more info/links on the show? it looks pretty cute (noooo seunga and jb were so cute :-( )
sergel02 15th-Nov-2012 04:11 am (UTC)
Here's the full cut, LQ and unsubbed tho. Seungah's part will get subbed at some point by Crayola subs

AKP probably has the most info on it. There are some small vids on youtube like this

Here's a loose recap

I think the series is 4 episodes long. Pretty sure she'll end up with Mir next week.
swhyeon1991 15th-Nov-2012 04:14 am (UTC)
I was going to comment about Seunga & JB! They look so cute together~!
Sorry OP, I just checked this post now XD
dio_elaclaire 14th-Nov-2012 10:05 am (UTC)
comeback please? pretty please?
soramai 14th-Nov-2012 10:34 am (UTC)
3 years ?!! Like I thought they were nugus from 2011 or something ....
deaaan 14th-Nov-2012 12:39 pm (UTC)
sheds silent tears at this post tbh gonna sacrifice something to my rainbow shrine

god bless yoonhye's weave she is one step closer to being less awk
encyclopedicace 14th-Nov-2012 01:16 pm (UTC)
I feel like I would care about Rainbow a lot more if Jaekyung wasn't part of the group, or was pushed to the back...I like Woori and Noeul, and some of the others, but Jaekyung just irks me :/
in_noctem 14th-Nov-2012 04:53 pm (UTC)
IA about Jaekyung. Idk if that's the image her management wants her to have but she's such an attention seeker. Even her members looked pissed with her on Dream Team.
love_keiko 14th-Nov-2012 04:16 pm (UTC)
they need to make a comeback. they actually have great music. of all girl groups to fall in to oblivion rainbow should NOT be it.
spread 14th-Nov-2012 05:45 pm (UTC)
I wish these girls were more successful.
Their music is flaw-free & plus they're hawt!!
Same goes for Nine Muse...
sora501 14th-Nov-2012 06:12 pm (UTC)
i've always hated dsp i swear if they disband rainbow i might burn their villa

gazeeet 14th-Nov-2012 08:36 pm (UTC)
I love them that they havent give up even if DSP is being a ass to them, i mean, what is so hard to give them a comeback?! They have fans and we fans need a comeback or i'll send a mad mail or fucking something to DSP.......
zhuer 14th-Nov-2012 10:17 pm (UTC)
gosh, I really like Rainbow! I loved To Me and Sweet Dreams. DSP, what are you doing?
lightframes 15th-Nov-2012 03:58 am (UTC)
Gossip Girl was stuck in my head all day today and now I know why...

I almost didn't recognize Yoonhye.
sergel02 15th-Nov-2012 07:10 am (UTC)
I pray she doesn't get her hair chopped off again.
