Back on July 21, Rain posted a photo of a rainbow on his Instagram page, with the caption, "Something good happened..."
Actors Kwak Si Yang and Lee Si Eon commented below Rain's post with congratulatory emojis and since then, speculations began rising over the mysterious 'good thing' that had happened to Rain. Netizens began speculating that his wife Kim Tae Hee was pregnant with a third child, and some even left comments such as "Is it?" and "Should I congratulate you in advance?" However, Rain quickly edited his post to dismiss the unfounded rumors by adding the hastags 'It's work related', 'work, work, work, work', 'good thing', 'personal', 'firmly', and 'completely'.
The 'good thing' mentioned by Rain could have had many different meanings. It could have been business-related, work-related, or merely have referred to a typical good day for the singer personally. However, many netizens quickly took meaning to his post as 'family-related', as his relationship with his wife and top star Kim Tae Hee is regularly spotlighted by media. Many criticized netizens' invasion of Rain's privacy and for leaving comments that spread false rumors of Kim Tae Hee's pregnancy. This is not the first time that a simple work-related Instagram post made by Rain led to false rumors of Kim Tae He's pregnancy. Thus, Rain's quick action of editing his Instagram post showed his exhaustion at the unfound rumors that constantly follows him around, regarding his wife and family.
