The music video of pop star Rain's spectacularly cheesy 2017 song "Gang" has drawn more than 10 million views on YouTube as of Sunday.
The overproduced video has been ripped apart by critics for everything from its inane lyrics to its inept appropriation of hip-hop styles and spawned a thousand parodies.
But the fading idol is ironically enjoying renewed, if somewhat tongue-in-cheek, popularity and catapulted once more on the front pages of entertainment news.
But the video has also put the spotlight on the ageless singer's diet regimen, which apparently consists of nothing but sparkling mineral water, 10 Brussels sprouts, yogurt balls, half an apple, an orange, one baked sweet potato, 200 g of chicken breast and a fistful of nuts.
When he is not sporting various accessories inscribed with his name, Rain can be seen constantly flexing his muscles and showing off his chiseled physique in the video. But it remains to be seen if he can lastingly cash in on his "resurgence."
