Singer-Actor Rain And Yet Another Scandal

Singer-Actor Rain And Yet Another Scandal

Rain Something about singer-actor Bi Rain seems to attract a scandal. Only this week, the "Full House" star was cleared of charges stemming from an embezzlement scandal and before the singer"s fans could breathe a sigh of relief, he was involved in yet another scandal.

He was cleared of a 2010 scandal that led to the indictment of two executives at his record label J. Tune Entertainment. An investor claimed that he and his partners misused funds and that his actions lowered the company"s stock value. The singer was accused of leasing expensive cars paid for by the company and of raising his modeling fee to $2.25 million over three years. But the court ruled that although such behavior might be considered questionable, any damage done to the company"s stock rating was minimal. He was declared innocent of all charges.

Rain, who appeared in the 2008 Hollywood film "Speed Racer," also provoked a scandal when it was learned that he was seeing actress Kim Tae Hee once a week while he was supposed to be on military duty. Enlistees are allowed to take only 28 vacation days in a year and he took over 50. While celebrity recruits do get time off base for promotional duties, he took advantage of that time to see the actress and was seen without a uniform.

A South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman said the incident was blown out of proportion.

"We advise soldiers to wear proper military outfit including a beret during a holiday but a failure to do so is not a punishable crime," said the spokesman.

However, it was determined that he breached regulations by having private meetings while on duty and that he should be punished.

His punishment for repeatedly breaching regulations created more scandal because it was so light.

"Under a decision by the disciplinary commission of his unit, Rain will be confined to his barracks to spend seven days of repentance," said a military spokesman after the incident.

Seven days? Too lenient a punishment, said netizens tired of the special treatment given to celebrity recruits.

Maybe a sterner punishment would have kept Rain out of trouble this week. He was seen drinking with fellow singers Se7en, Mighty Mouth"s Sangchu and singer KCM, when they were on duty.

The celebrity recruits performed at a broadcast and reporters followed them to their motel. After that the singers went out to eat chicken and drink. Then they left the hotel again at 11:30, coming back to the motel at 2 a.m. in civilian clothes. Se7en and Sangchu were spotted at an adult massage parlor.

Rain"s enlistment ends in July. Hopefully, by then he will develop some scandal radar and improve his chances of staying out of trouble.

Rain's Decision To End Mandatory Military Enlistment With 10-Day Leave Not Motivated By Recent PR Officer Scandal, His Rep Claims

Rain's Decision To End Mandatory Military Enlistment With 10-Day Leave Not Motivated By Recent PR Officer Scandal, His Rep Claims

Rain, PR Officer Scandal

Rain's Decision To End Mandatory Military Enlistment With 10-Day Leave Not Motivated By Recent PR Officer Scandal, His Rep Claims A representative for the actor denied that Rains decision was motivated by the recent scandal that ensnared fellow PR officers Sanchu of the group Mighty Mouth and the singer Se7enK-pop singer Rain will use the rest of his allotted leave time to complete his last 10 days serving in the South Korean army as a public relations officer for the Defense Media Agency.

"Rain recently turned in his last leave to show hes determined to work hard in his services until the end," an anonymous source told the publication CJ EM enewsWorld.

"His last leave was to last for 10 days."

A representative for the actor denied that Rain's decision was motivated by the recent scandal that ensnared fellow PR officers Sanchu of the group Mighty Mouth and the singer Se7en, after the pair were filmed leaving an erotic massage parlor at 3 a.m. while on active duty.

"He didnt choose this way because of the recent controversy surrounding PR agents," said a representative for the star.

"He just wished to turn in his leave and work hard until his release."

All eligible males between the ages of 18 and 35 must enroll for roughlytwo years of army service in South Korea (the length of mandatoryenrollment changes by several months depending on which branch of themilitary that they serve in) in a practice known as conscription.

Rain, who appeared in the 2008 Hollywood film "Speed Racer," created a controversy of his own back in January, when a tabloid published photos of the television actress Kim Tae-Hee getting into his car, during his enlistment.

The singer reportedly was sentenced to seven days of confinement for the incident.

And the conclusion of his two years of military service coming to an end isn't the only reason it's shaping up to be a good summer for Rain.

Last week, the singer was cleared of all charges stemming from a 2010 embezzlement scandal that led to the indictment of two executives at his record label J. Tune Entertainment.

Rain was originally cleared of all embezzlement charges in Seoul Central Court back in 2010, according to the website allkpop, yet the case was reopened a year later.

Back in March, a fashion investor named Lee sued the star for $1.8 million on the charge that he and two of his partners misused company funds, according to allkpop.

"There isn't enough evidence to prove the plaintiff's accusations against singer Rain," the court officer said on Monday. "We've decided he is innocent on all counts."

"Rain, who was sued for bringing harm to a company after demanding [millions of dolllars] for modeling fees as its main shareholder, was cleared of all charges following a reinvestigation," the Seoul Central District Prosecutors Office added.

The new scandal involving singers Se7en and Mighty Mouth's Sangchu has netizens wondering. After learning about the celebrity recruits'visit to an adult massage parlor while they were supposed to be onmilitary duty, some netizens wondered how it will affect the singers'future service and the general treatment of celebrity recruits. But somenetizens also expressed concern that the scandal might negativelyaffect Se7en's relationship with actress Park Han Byul.

Se7en, whose real name is Choi Dong Wook has dated Park for 11 years,ever since they were high school sweethearts. Four years ago theyadmitted publicly that they were in a relationship. That made thingseasier for them as a couple.

"Everything became a lot more comfortable," said Park. "I'm not goodat lying so I was scared that people would ask when I went on interviewsor talk shows. Now I'm more confident and at ease since I have nothingto hide."

A few months ago the actress was interviewed for her film, "My BlackMini Dress," and asked about her relationship with the singer. She saidSe7en encouraged her to try out for the film role, as the party girl HyeJi was so different from her previous roles. And at the final filming,he bought pizza and chicken for the whole cast and crew. At that pointshe was asked if the two had plans to marry and she said she was stilltoo young to consider it.

"It feels like something that won't happen until well into ourfuture," said Park, who appeared in the dramas "Oh! My Lady" and "MyFair Lady." "Nothing can be guaranteed in a person's life, but I want tomarry after I turn 30. I think Dong Wook feels the same."

Both Se7en and Park Han Byul are 28 now.

Park has made no statement about the massage parlor incident, whichis being investigated by the Ministry of National Defense. The ministrystated that one of the two celebrities has a bad back and a bad knee andthat's why he went for a massage. But they did not say which singer itwas and offered no explanation for the presence of the other singer.

Immediately after the scandal made the news, screen captures ofSe7en's military profile were posted online alongside Park Han Byul's.His said, "Things can happen." Hers said. "Don't do anything you'llregret."

Was her motto a warning to her boyfriend? He might have listened toher motto instead of his own and saved himself a lot of bad publicity.
