Following the parents of rapper siblings Sanchez and Microdot, as well as the parents of rapper Dok2, singer/actor Rain's parents have also been accused of fraud, according to one online community claim on November 26.
One netizen 'A' wrote via an online community, "Singer rain's parent borrowed money from my parents, then cut off contact."
'A' explained, "In 1988, my parents ran a rice shop at Yongmun Market in Seoul, while Rain's parent ran a rice cake shop. [Rain's parent's side] borrowed rice worth approximately 17 million KRW (~ 15,000 USD) as well as cash 8 million KRW (~ 7,000 USD) in cash. My parents continued to ask that they be requited for the amount, but Rain's parent refused, arguing financial strain. After a while, my parents gave up and asked for only the original amount in return, but Rain's family disappeared."
Currently, 'A's parents are over 60 years old, and as it has been over 30 years since the incident, which likely means that 'A's side will not be able to file a civil lawsuit.
In response to the claim, Rain's label Rain Company told media outlets, "We are currently checking on the matter."
