South Korean singer/actor Rain has revealed why does he prefer to keep his personal life away from spotlight. The 36-year-old artist, whose real name is Jung Ji-hoon, shared that his life has changed drastically after welcoming a baby.

During a press conference for the upcoming movie Uhm Bok-dong, Rain stated that he likes to avoid topics about his private side. He said, according to Allkpop: "I think I'm different after having a family. There's nothing I feel I have to do necessarily because I have the title of father, but I have rules now. In the past, I talked cheerfully about how I want my family to get along a certain way, but the world is scary now. I want to reveal my baby, but I feel it could come back as a knife later."

"In the future, I plan to keep a wall between work and family. It's because I don't want my family to get hurt. Having a family doesn't affect the kinds of projects I choose, but I don't want to open up about my family. I'm careful. I have guilt because of what happened to my mother in the past... There can be misunderstandings about me because I have the job of being a celebrity. You can play with me, and throw me away, but you can't cross the border of touching my family," he added.
