Kim Tae-hee has officially admitted she is in a relationship with superstar Rain, who is currently serving the mandatory military service. Their romance was first reported in early January.
Asked about her relationship with Rain during the press junket for her new SBS series,” Kim said, “We have just started dating and are getting to know each other better, and not much has changed. I was concerned and felt sorry for the crew as news broke on the first day of the new year, prior to shooting of the drama. But Rain told me that my hard work will pay off.”
Earlier this year, Rain was grounded for a week after it was revealed that he had been bunking off military duties to meet up with Kim.
Korean prosecutors on Wednesday formally charged four female celebrities, Park Si-yeon, Jang Mi-inae, Lee Seung-yeun and Hyun Young, with abusing propofol, a drug widely used as an anesthetic during surgery, reported Korean media.
Prosecutors said Park was the heaviest user of the four, receiving more than 180 injections of the drug at two cosmetic surgery clinics between 2011 and 2012, for surgical procedures that did not actually take place.
The authorities have also charged the doctors who illegally administered the propofol injections, and an artiste management agency representative who had obstructed their investigations.
Propofol is a fast-acting sedative which relaxes the user and gives the user a feeling of euphoria.
However, it has a number of side effects, and can affect the user’s respiratory and cardiac functions.
Propofol is the same drug that killed US superstar Michael Jackson, who died from an overdose in 2009.

Playing the role of Linghu Chong in the highly-criticised Yu Zheng-produced adaptation, “Swordsman”, actor Wallace Huo stated that he had been expecting the disapprovals since he first decided to take on the role.
As reported on Popular Asians, the Taiwanese actor, however, clarified that “Swordsman” is meant for a different audience, stating, “I am personally against adaptations that differed from the original, but despite its changes, I was quite impressed with the script. I believe that many younger audiences are not familiar with the original, so “Swordsman” is for them.”
When asked about the comments made by fans who wanted his character to choose Joe Chen’s Dongfang Bubai instead of Ren Yingying, Wallace stated, “I know many fans cannot understand why he doesn’t respond to Dongfang Bubai’s pursuits after everything she has done for him. But the ending is set, and nothing can change it.”
However, he agreed that Linghu Chong and Dongfang Bubai’s relationship was a fascinating one and that the two characters cannot have a simple ending.
The popularity of the Linghu Chong and Dongfang Bubai relationship also mirrored the relationship between the former lovers, Wallace Hu and Joe Chen, who became a couple through 2004′s Taiwanese drama, “100% Senorita”.
Wallace explained, “We were young back then. Many things have changed in the past few years. Both of us have experienced different setbacks and different matters, so we have both changed dramatically.”
When asked if Joe Chen remains to be his ideal type, he answered, “Not bad. She’s good, and a pretty girl,” but continued, “I like low-profile girls. I also like those who are forgiving, and someone who I can take out with and manage a house.”
