The Kim Hyun Joong saga continues with its latest revelation. Kim Hyun Joong’s side has released photos of him and his girlfriend on June 7th at Jeju Island to KBS 2TV's 'Entertainment Relay', showing she was perfectly fine. His lawyers said, "If you see the photo taken at Jeju Island on June 7th, only a few days after she claimed to be beaten on May 30th, she is perfectly fine. She claims that she miscarried the child after being beaten while pregnant, but the accusations do not say anything about a pregnancy or a miscarriage."
In response, Miss Choi's side said, "There is plenty of proof, such as texts that they sent back and forth while they were dating. The truth will be revealed in court."
Kim Hyun Joong is a South Korean entertainer, actor, and the leader and main rapper of boyband SS501. Kim is well known for his role as Yoon Ji-hoo in the 2009 Korean drama Boys Over Flowers, and as Baek Seung-jo in Playful Kiss, for which he received the Popularity Awards at the 45th Baeksang Arts Awards for the former and at the Seoul International Drama Awards 2009 for the latter.
With the expiration of the contract, Kim left DSP Media, who managed him as part of SS501 and joined KeyEast in 2010. He debuted as a solo artist with his Korean mini albums Break Down and Lucky in 2011. He is a member of the charity football team FC MEN as well as a style icon in Korea, having won several icon awards.
In February 2015, Kim's girlfriend was reported to be pregnant with his child. Kim stated that he would take full responsibility if his girlfriend was found pregnant. His agency later reported that his girlfriend cannot be contacted even before the issue came out, thus, they cannot confirm if the pregnancy was true. The pregnancy was later confirmed by Kim and his girlfriend.
On May 3rd it was reported that Kim's girlfriend had filed a mass Psychological injury lawsuit against more than 100 netizens for posting malicious comments about them during their scandal. On the same day, it was reported that Kim was being sued by his former girlfriend as well, for a sum of $1.48 million for the mental damages from her relations with the Kim. On the following day, Kim was reported that he is going to be enlisted on May 12th. Kim's lawyer said the case will not influence his attendance in the military as civil suit can go on without the concerned party, with a substitute. When the DNA checks out that he is the real father then he's going to take responsibility. His lawyer also stated that they would not settle with Kim's ex girlfriend this time.
On August 21, 2014 reports surfaced that a young woman claiming to be Kim's girlfriend had filed domestic violence charges against him claiming he assaulted her causing a fractured rib. He was then investigated by the police, but the investigation eventually stopped after his girlfriend dropped her charges against him. He was later fined 5 million won by the Seoul Prosecutor's office after Kim claimed that they had a mutual physical fight once, but three of the four charges were dropped as they were unable to be directly linked to Kim.
