Legendary icon Rain has strongly refuted the rumors of him cheating on Kim Tae-hee, his wife for the past five years.
On October 6, 2022, the artist’s agency gave their official statement to iMBC, saying that the brewing discussions online were ridiculous. They said:
“It’s ridiculous. We will take action immediately.”
The company will be taking action against the spread of this rumor, which stemmed from a report by the South Korean magazine Woman Sense. A week ago, the magazine reported that an A-list celebrity was cheating on his wife with a professional golfer. The wife was also described as a woman known for her beauty and intelligence.
Online discourse about the report snowballed into netizens speculating that the couple in question was Rain and Kim Tae-hee, one of South Korea’s most renowned celebrity duos.
Fans are on the fence as Rain’s agency refutes allegations that he was cheating on Kim Tae-hee
Fans of one of the hottest celebrity couples in South Korea are not sure who to believe. After a rumored report of infidelity by Woman Sense magazine went viral, locals began speculating that it was Rain and Kim Tae-hee.
The couple is arguably some of the most powerful celebrities, both individually and together. The Rainism artist's company later released a statement reiterating that it was a baseless rumor.
However, the entertainment world was recently rocked by two of the biggest, unimaginable cheating cases: Adam Levine-Behati Prinsloo and The Try Guys’ Ned Fulmer-Ariel Fulmer. So while many fans defended Rain and Kim Tae-hee's nearly a decade-old relationship, some had their apprehensions.
Meanwhile, another celebrity couple, Jo Jung-suk and Gummy, was speculated to be the ones experiencing infidelity issues. The former is known for his role in Hospital Playlist and Oh My Ghost, while the latter is popular for her OSTs such as Descendants of the Sun’s song, You are My Everything.
Jo Jung-suk’s agency also denied any connection with the report and refuted the allegations. It mentioned that the actor “has no relationship, acquaintance or otherwise, with any golfer.”
