On September 23, representatives for both sides convened at Seoul Central District Court for the third plea hearing regarding alleged damage suit of his ex-lover, a woman who is referred to by Korean media as Choi or Ms. A, Kim Hyun Joong. Lee Jae Man, the lawyer for Kim, present at the meeting along with Sun Jong Moon, who represents his ex-girlfriend.
During the hearing, Sun provided evidence for the alleged pregnancy and alleged miscarriage. Lee provided counter arguments to defend his client.
Sun spoke with the media, after the session concluded. "Kim Hyun Joong's side refers to acknowledge anything, even though evidence was presented," said Sun.
Legal representatives for his ex-girlfriend continued to support her claims that the SS501 star knew that she had previously suffered from a miscarriage and that he had knowledge of his involvement in the paternity of her newborn baby. Her lawyer went to discuss a potential paternity suit against Kim.
"We plan to bring a paternity suit against Kim," said Sun. "It has taken some time because we need to register the birth of the baby and address other matters."
Her lawyer went on to discuss the desire of her side to receive secure and independent DNA testing.
In a report published by Asiae, representatives for the "Boys Over Flowers" star expressed the displeasure of his side, particularly the impact that the on-going legal preceedings have had on his family.
Asiae included a statement from attorney Lee Jae Man, who illustrated the medical consequences the legal battle has had on the Kim family.
"A family member with a panic disorder even suffered from shingles," said Lee.
He went on to describe the aftermath of on-going media coverage and its effect on the career of the singer-turned-actor.
"Her [his ex-girlfriend] use of the press has caused damage to Kim Hyun Joong," said legal representatives for the pop star. "Kim Hyun Joong and his family don't want to meet with her, anymore."
He followed with an optimistic perspective towards the course of the preceedings. "The family and I hope that at this difficult time, there is good news on the other side," said the spokesperson for Kim's legal team.
Kim recently addressed his legal woes through a handwritten letter that was presented by his lawyer during an emergency press conference. In his letter, he confirmed that he completed the DNA test to determine paternity and expressed his desire to stay away from his ex-girlfriend.
