Rain Opens Up About Keeping His Daughter Out Of The Spotlight And Protecting Family From The Public
Rain shared his thoughts on speaking publicly about his family.
On February 20, the singer-actor participated in an interview about his latest film “Uhm Bok Dong.”
Rain married actress Kim Tae Hee in 2017, and the couple welcomed their daughter in the same year. When asked if this changed his decisions about acting projects, he replied, “Nothing has really changed for me. Nothing changed just because I started a family and I became a father. But I now have a first rule.”
He continued, “For instance, I could speak positively in the past and say something like, ‘My child is like this and my family is doing this and that.’ But I think the world has become a scary place these days. I adore my child too, so I want to show her to all of you, but all of that returns to bite a person later on. I realized that this can’t happen and I want to completely separate my family and work.” He added, “I really don’t want my family to get hurt. They don’t impact the way I choose my projects, but I’m always careful when talking about my family.”
“I hate to bring this up again, but I’m someone who had many emotions related to guilt about my mother,” said Rain. “Because of that, I don’t have sound judgment when my family gets hurt. Since I’m a celebrity, it doesn’t matter that the public talks about me. But when people talk about my family, I tend to cross the line and not have sound judgment.”
“Uhm Bok Dong” is a film based on the true story of a Korean cyclist of the same name. Uhm Bok Dong became a hero after beating Japanese athletes and winning first place in a bicycle race during the Japanese colonial era. The film will premiere in theaters on February 27.
