Rain’s Agency Responds To Accusations Of Fraud Against His Parents
Rain Company has given an official statement regarding the accusations of fraud against Rain’s parents.
Recently, a post entitled, “Singer Rain’s parents have not repaid the money they borrowed from my parents and have disappeared,” surfaced on an online community.
According to the post, the netizen stated that their parents ran a rice store and that Rain’s parents ran a rice cake store in Seoul’s Yong Moon Market in 1988. The netizen claimed, “They [Rain’s parents] borrowed 17 million won (approximately $15,000) worth of rice and 8 million won (approximately $7,000) in cash. We asked them to repay the money, but they pled that they were suffering from hardships and didn’t pay us back.”
The netizen also uploaded a copy of a promissory note and added, “My parents are now over 50 years old. I have written to Rain and tried to contact him, but I haven’t succeeded. The time to sue has passed, and I don’t have the ability to take legal action either. Repay the money, even if it is now.”
On November 27, a source from his agency Rain Company stated in a press release, “Hello, this is Rain Company. We ask for your understanding in being late releasing our official statement in order for us to verify the truth and respond cautiously regarding the issue.”
The agency expressed, “We are currently in the middle of ascertaining whether what’s being said is accurate. As what the other side is claiming has to do with [Rain’s] mother who is deceased, we will quickly meet with those involved and check the existence of the debt and will do our best to come to a resolution.”
The accusations against Rain’s parents aren’t the only parents of celebrities to have been accused of fraud. Dok2 recently responded to accusations of fraud against his mother. Microdot’s parents are also currently under investigation for fleeing the country after borrowing money from friends, neighbors, and acquaintances.
