Kim Tae-hee gushes about RainActress Kim Tae-hee mentioned her boyfriend Rain for the first time in a public event yesterday at a press conference for the new SBS drama “Jang Ok Jung, Live for Love,” which she stars in.
“We are getting to know each other,” said Kim. “I was very worried because the [news] broke out so close to the filming of the drama and because I was worrying too much, [Rain] consoled me by saying some hopeful words and encouraged me [to focus on filming].”
She also added that all she can think right now is the new drama.
The news on the romantic relationship between the two topped the local entertainment scene on the first day of this year. When the scandal was first reported, they were about three months into their relationship.
The two met through work in 2011 when they shot a commercial together and had kept in contact since.
In the upcoming drama, Kim will play Jang Ok-jung, whose real name is Lady Jang Hui-bin, one of the best known concubines of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).
