A new trend is emerging in South Korea's entertainment industry known as KPOP. South Korean pop stars are getting baptized into the Roman Catholic Church.
The Korea Herald reports that, "Singer and actor Rain has recently been baptized into the Catholic church following in the footsteps of his Catholic lover, actress Kim Tae-hee, his management agency said Monday. "Rain has recently received Catholic baptism," Cube DC said, without giving details. "It was planned a long time ago."
