According to a music industry insider on July 21, singer and actor Rain was baptized at a cathedral in Gyeonggi-do this month, in the presence of his girlfriend, actress Kim Tae Hee, her family, as well as his close friends and family. It is well known that Kim Tae Hee is a devout Catholic, and it appears that Rain, who was previously agnostic, has been influenced by his girlfriend’s devotion to the religion.
Rain’s agency, Cube DC, told Yonhap News through a phone conversation, “Rain recently received Catholic baptism. It is something that was planned a long time ago.”
With the news of Rain’s baptism spreading in the entertainment industry, rumors of marriage between the famous couple are being raised once again.
After it was initially reported that the two were dating in January of last year, they admitted to being in a relationship, and have continued to meet well, even getting photographed at a restaurant most recently.
However, Cube DC stated, “There are no specific wedding plans yet. Please do not interpret the baptism as an impending marriage.”
