The singer-actor’s legal representatives recently revealed to OSEN, “Around next week, we will be filing a petition against Ms. Choi. She received a settlement of 600 million KRW (approx. $535,000 USD) with the promise of not disclosing information to outside sources. However, she violated that condition, so we are suing for breach of contract for the same amount. Also, another 600 million KRW for defamation after claiming that Kim Hyun Joong assaulted her, for a total of 1.2 billion KRW.”
On July 4, Kim Hyun Joong’s side further shared, “There is no proof that Ms. Choi was pregnant at the time that she claims Kim Hyun Joong assaulted her. According to the statement submitted to the court by the ob-gyn where Ms. Choi claimed in her petition that she received her pregnancy confirmation and treatment for miscarriage, the hospital only issued her a diagnosis of amenorrhea for four weeks. They revealed that they did not give a definite diagnosis of anything related to pregnancy or miscarriage. As Ms. Choi’s claims of miscarriage due to assault appears to be a lie, we will be countersuing.”
Meanwhile, the two sides are currently in a legal battle after Ms. Choi filed a lawsuit against Kim Hyun Joong for 1.6 billion KRW (approx. $1,426,000 USD) in compensation for damages.
