Rain is Now Catholic, and Marriage-Worthy?


Rain was recently baptized in a small ceremony in front of family, close friends, and his girlfriend Kim Tae Hee. Since it’s common knowledge that Kim Tae Hee is a devout Catholic, many have wondered if this is a sign that they’re one step closer to marriage. The actors say “no,” but converting to a religion is not a sign of the uncommitted.


On July 21st Rain was baptized at Namhansanseong Cathedral in Gyeonggi-do in a ceremony presided by a priest, Kim Tae Hee’s mother, and actor Ahn Sung Ki. His agency Cube DC announced that this baptism was a long time coming, though I’m sure it was motivated by the fact that he had a devout girlfriend. It’s likely she believes in having her wedding in a Catholic church, and the only way to do that is if both bride and groom are Catholic.

This couple can deny it all they want, but I won’t be surprised if wedding bells are definitely in their future. The pair have been dating since January 2013.

    Awesome! As a devout Catholic I feel the need to clarify that Catholics do not have to marry other Catholics, as the church does not involve itself in love matters of the faithful. The fact that Rain was baptized means he’s either found something that he was looking for in the faith or he is planning a sacramental marriage with KTH (which is a marriage between two members of the faith that is considered one of the 7 sacraments of the Church- baptism is the 1st, marriage is the 5th). He would have had to take classes and prepare for his baptism as this is a very serious matter for adults converting and it proves his devotion. May their love be blessed!
