Korean singer-actor Rain praised actress girlfriend Kim Tae-hee for standing by him even though he was mired in controversy last year, but said they currently have no plans to marry, at a recent media conference for his new album "Rain Effect".
SEOUL: Korean singer-actor Rain praised his actress girlfriend Kim Tae-hee for standing by him when he faced public criticism last year for flouting army regulations, and allegedly taking too many days off, while he was serving his compulsory stint in the army, reported Korean media.
Speaking at a recent media conference to promote the launch of his sixth album “Rain Effect”, his first album since he was discharged from the military in July last year, Rain explained that he had received extra days off "as a reward for performing very well at the rifle range".
He went on to heap praise on Kim, and said “she is really great and truly cares about me”.
Rain, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, added that he hoped to “do everything I can to be considerate towards her” in the future, putting to rest rumours that they have broken up.
While it is clear Rain likes Kim quite a bit - the 31-year-old star even snuck out to meet her while he was on military duty in January last year – Rain said they currently have no plans to marry.
“Right now, it’s time to work. I have always been a workaholic,” said Rain.
“So I’ll still be putting work first for now.”
2014 is shaping up to be an important year for Rain, as he’ll also be returning to Tinseltown in the action thriller “The Prince”, which is expected to be released later in the year.
“The Prince” will be his first appearance in a Hollywood film since 2009’s “Ninja Assassin”.
