Singer Rain's followup hit 'Hip Song' stage gathers interests from netizens with many who commented on how similar it is as compared to the late singer Kim SeongJae's 'As I told You' performances.

Rain had performed the song 'Hip Song' as his followup hit on Mnet M!Countdown, KBS Music Bank and MBC Music Core this week. And for his performance on M!Countdown and Music Core, there were many who pointed out the close similiarities of the outfit concepts as compared to Kim SeongJae 'So To Speak' performances.

The hockey costume fashion and the sunglasses, as pointed out by many netizens, is similar to that of the concept of 'As I Told You' by Kim SeongJae in 1995.

Some netizens defended, "It's just fashion, there is bound to be similariries" etc. And the truth is Rain has revealed that Kim SeongJae is his idol, and many have also voiced if this was a remake concept by Rain.

Meanwhile, Kim SeongJae died the next day after his first solo stage with 'As I Told You' in November 1995. And cause of his death has since been an unsolved mystery to fans till this day.
