Has anyone heard the rumours about Rain having dated Jihyun Jeon since October 2009? Check out one of the many online articles here: http://www.allkpop.com/2010/06/is-rain-dating-jeon-ji-hyun
Rain and his management team have denied the rumour, and its always possible that it is just a rumour, but let’s break this down. Rain’s hot, virile and single. He probably gets propositioned/hit on on the daily. I don’t really know how the women in his entourage/staff can stand it–working so closely to him. So its very likely that Rain has met several women in the past year that have gained his interest. I don’t know much about Jihyun, but she seems to be the ideal type he’d go for. Why?
1) She’s older than him. He’s stated over and over that he’s attracted to older (or at least, older than him) women.
2) She’s classy and beautiful (see below), and is a popular actress. Someone on his level.
3) Not alot of people know, but he’s stated several times in interviews that she’s his ideal woman. Chances are this news got back to her. She was engaged to some Korean-American guy for a while, but since becoming single, she probably hit Rain up as quickly as she could. Can’t say I blame her!
Once again, I know this is a rumour, but I tend to think its true. As a fan of Rain, I have mixed emotions: on one hand I am a bit jealous, but on the other, I am pleased to know that he’s normal and loves women. It’d be a waste if he was gay!! On top of that, he works so darn hard that he does deserve joy and happiness in his life.
Honourable mention: Im Soo-Jung. On a recent talk show, Rain said that his ideal girl was his “I’m A Cyborg, But It’s Ok” co-star Im Soo-Jung. He could have said this to divert the media/fans’ attention from his possible relationship with Jihyun, but I thought I’d mention it. My opinion on her is she is a cutie and a bit quirky, so I could see why he would like her.
