Hyoyeon, member of Girls’ Generation, was at the center of a media storm as she reported to have assaulted a man on April 1, April fool’s Day. The man who reported the assault turned out to be her former boyfriend. Kim Jun Hyung is now speaking out to speak the truth of the situation and what happened on April 1st.
Kim Jun Hyung (35), CEO of a global marketing brand and writer, is a well-known and highly respected businessman and mentor. It was a surprise and shock for those who know Kim and read the headlines cuirculating around the media.
Kim told Star Today, "I received over 1000 messages on KaKaoTalk... I learned how scary the power of the media can be." Kim also stated, "I wanted to tell those out there who have become disappointed in Hyoyeon through this incident what an awesome person she is."
Kim was asked about the night of the incident. Kim responded, "I was scared that Hyoyeon might fall down if she lost her footing. The drop was 5 meters, I was really scared. I thought that even if it's a joke, she could still seriously get hurt or that something could go wrong. So that's why I thought that I needed to get help from the police. I had called in to ask for help, but it was misreported as me reporting her for violence."
It was reported that Hyoyeon was playing a joke and attempting to jump on Kim when she was stopped and accidentally hit him. Both SM Entertainment and the Police understand the story however netizens are a bit more skeptical. Rumors soon flooded the internet that Hyoyeon was a bully and Hyoyeon attempting suicide started to spread.
"They were rumors that I just could not understand... If you knew Hyoyeon's real personality, those rumors could never have come about... If I were to sum it up, I'd say that people's imaginations were running wild. Hyoyeon is actually very nice and an atmosphere-maker with a great personality. She is also very close with her members like they are her family. She is someone who smiles all the time as she spends happy times with her parents, sibling, and dog. She is the type to not even focus her attention on rumors like that and just brush them off. Everytime she'd be misunderstood, she'd be the type to say 'I just have to do better, I just have to work harder, I just have to show a good image,'" Kim Jun Hyung said.
Kim Jun Hyung and Hyoyeon started their relationship in December 2012 and quickly bonded with similarities such as sports and religion although the 10 year age gap they share. As the two experienced periodic break-ups, the April 1st incident seemed to have been a pivotal point. Kim Jun Hyung responded, "We did not break up because of the April Fools' Day incident... We had decided to just remain as good oppa-dongseng before that. We would just have a meal and such with acquaintances."
"She is one of the nicest, most honest and most positive person I've met... We still keep in touch and ask how each other are doing and cheer each other on." Hopefully the rumors and speculations about Hyoyeon, Kim Jun Hyung, and their relationship will cease and allow the two to move on forward.
