Recently, a post titled "Singer Rains parents has not refunded the money they have borrowed from my parents and have disappeared," occurred in a social networking community.
According to the post, netizen stated that their parents ran a rice store and that Rains parents ran a risk store in Seoul's Yong Moon Market in 1988. Netizen claimed, "they [Rain’s parents] borrow 17 million won (about $ 15,000) worth of rice and 8 million won (about $ 7000) in cash. We asked them to repay the money, but they bothered that they suffered from difficulties and did not pay us back. "
Netizen also uploaded a copy of a promise letter and added, "My parents are now over 50 years old. I have written to Rain and tried to contact him, but I have not succeeded. The time to sue has gone and I have nor the opportunity to take legal matters either. Repeat the money, even if it is now. "

The charges against Rain parents are not the only parents of celebrities who have been accused of fraud. Dok2 responded recently to charges of fraud against his mother. Microdot's parents are currently under investigation to flee from the country after borrowing money from friends, neighbors and acquaintances.
