In 2013, the couple made their relationship public, and immediately faced backlash from fans. At the time, many people believed that this was just a “business relationship” to boost the popularity of the two, while some condemned Bi Rain for falling behind Kim Tae Hee in visuals and family background.

When Kim Tae Hee was pregnant, Korean media reported that Bi Rain took extremely close care of wife. He’d buy her good food, take care of his daughter, and go home early to talk to his then unborn baby.
Bi Rain’s affection for his family can be shown clearly through an interview he had on the chat show “You Quiz On The Block”. In particular, the singer-actor said, “Marriage and love are wonderful. Nevertheless, I wish I can enjoy a longer honeymoon phase with my wife. [Kim Tae Hee] got pregnant with our first daughter quickly so we didn’t have much time. Still, I am always so happy to go home and pick up my daughter’s toys. I always feel grateful for having such a happy family life – it’s the kind of happiness I have never felt when I was still single.”
Meanwhile, Kim Tae Hee rarely discussed her private life, but did speak of her happiness once in the media, saying, “Marriage helps me to mature, live better, and add diversity to my emotions and life experiences.”
