A-list actress Kim Tae-hee recently bought a 2.4 billion won ($2 million) high-class house in Irvine, California, according to local entertainment media Newsen Thursday.
"Kim did purchase the residence, but we cannot confirm further details due to privacy reasons," a spokesperson for her agency BS Company told media outlet TV Report.

Newsen previously reported that Kim bought the house to gear up for her Hollywood entry, adding she also considered her husband, singer-actor Rain, who might forge a career in the U.S.
"Kim is expected to announce her Hollywood entry after giving birth to her baby," a friend of Kim was quoted as saying.
But the BS spokesperson said the report has been exaggerated.
"Kim has auditioned for some (Hollywood) films and dramas, but no confirmation has been made," the spokesperson said. "It is uncertain whether she will be cast in the future."
Kim, an alumnus of the prestigious Seoul National University, debuted in a TV commercial in 2000. Dubbed one of the most beautiful women in Korea, she has starred in dozens of hits including drama "Stairway to Heaven" (2003) and "Iris" (2009). She married Rain in 2017 and they have a daughter. Kim is expecting another baby in September.
