Actor-singer Rain was recently baptized as a Catholic to share the religion of his high-profile girlfriend, actress Kim Tae-hee, his management agency said Monday.

“Rain recently received baptism as a Catholic. It was something that was planned a long time ago,” said Cube DC, while denying rumors about an imminent marriage between the stars.

The baptism took place at a small church in Gwangju, on the outskirts of Seoul, with only family and close friends attending, including Kim Hae-hee and her mother.

Rain, 32, and Kim, 34, admitted they were in a romantic relationship in January.
