He's been ranked one of the most beautiful men in the world, so it's no surprise that the internet went into full meltdown mode when a supposed nude photo of Rain leaked. Only thing is — it wasn't him.
The revealing photo was first uploaded to Korean internet forums by an anonymous poster claiming the snap — which showed a nude male in the shower, eyes covered up — was supposedly stolen from girlfriend actress Kim Tae Hee's phone.
But the 32-year-old idol star — who has starred in movies all over the world, including Hollywood hit, Ninja Assassin — has quickly denied claims that he's the naked man. Furthermore, the singer's legal team have stated in response, via statement, "We shall be filing a complaint either today or tomorrow. It’s completely false."

While it is difficult to confirm the true identity of the subject in the photo, it’s clear that the "Rainism" star is keen for this incident to blow over.
Adds the rep, "We do not know why something like this was released."
