Kim Hyun Joong Claims Ex-Girlfriend Is Lying to Him, Explains His Side

[OP's Note: Not posting a picture.]

At noon September 17, Kim Hyun Joong’s lawyer Lee Jae Man held a press conference at his firm CheongPa, where he revealed a letter sent from the singer, who is currently in the middle of his mandatory military service.

[TW: Abuser]In the letter, the singer carefully apologizes, and explains that the recent rumor of him refusing the paternity test is not true.

He says, “I wanted to apologize for [not being able to relay good news] of late, with all the stories going around online. I, myself, am exhausted and tired, so I can’t even imagine how it must be for you. In order to avoid misunderstandings, I thought it’d be best if I personally said something.”

Kim Hyun Joong mentions his current service, expressing regret that he wasn’t able to properly say goodbye to everyone, and that while he enlisted “like a sinner,” he recently became a private. “I spent the last year under the sharp gaze of the public, but with the wisdom and encouragement of my instructors, I’m becoming more mature and as healthy as I was in the past. I want to say thank you, and I’m sorry.”

The singer says that he wanted to open up once everything had quieted down, but because of potential misunderstandings, he decided to write the letter, and states that, in contrast to the rumors, he is not avoiding the paternity test.

“I just knew that the due date for the baby was September 12; I had no idea the baby had been born at the beginning of September. I saw through the news that the baby had been born, and I saw reports stating that I was avoiding the paternity test,” says Kim Hyun Joong, insisting that he had already prepared all necessary documents for the test prior to his enlistment, and that he was simply waiting for his ex-girlfriend’s side to contact his parents or his lawyer to proceed.

“It’s not because I doubted the existence of the baby,” Kim Hyun Joong continues. “The reason I’m insisting on the test is that only once the paternity test has been done can I take legal responsibility for the child in whatever form. I want to raise the child, but I know that things can’t always happen the way you want, and it’s frustrating for me to only be able to say that I’ll carry out my legal duties.”

He says, “While it seems hypocritical coming from someone who failed to abide by the law himself, I’ll continue for the sake of [my] child.”

Kim Hyun Joong goes on to express how he feels, only being able to imagine who his child takes after and not being able to be with the baby.

“Currently, I’ve only been told the gender of the child, and nothing else. They’re lying to me so that I’m unable to approach the child. While I’m still lacking, I will do everything I can for the baby. They’re telling me that they don’t know the baby’s blood type yet [and can’t tell me], but from my point of view, it just doesn’t make sense. Not even telling the father of the child something like the baby’s blood type, and continuing with lawsuits, it’s true that I can’t help but to think the motive is just money.”

He closes, saying that for the sake of the baby, he hopes that no information [about the child] is leaked anywhere. “I hope you understand. I’ll see you again as a more mature and healthy person.”

BTS Rap Monster indirectly insults WINNER Song Minho (?)

afsd.jpg

Netizens praise BTS Rap Monster for talking about rappers’ problems of insulting women and cussing.

In the recent season of Show Me The Money, rappers such as Black Nut and WINNER Song Minho aka Mino as his stage name were involved in hotly debated controversies. Black Nut was involved in a controversy over his past rap lyrics insulting women and talking about violence while Mino was criticized for offending fans and women when he was accused of objectifying and insulting women with lyrics:
“Mino sniping the girls. Spread your legs like you’re at the gynecologist.”

With many controversies within season 4 of Show Me The Money, many netizens and fans of hip-hop asked why rappers believe they have to constantly rap about objectifying women, cuss, and insult people.
But during the recent interview with Star Today, BTS Rap Monster indirectly insults such rappers who follow such beliefs.

Jellyfish Entertainment hires Quick Service to deliver Ken to his musical schedule



VIXX Ken had his first 'Cinderella' musical performance to go to today but who knows what JellyFish did with his manager because it wasn't his manager who gave him a ride but a 'quickservice' (kind of like an uber for packages you want to speedily send somewhere without waiting for the post to do it, a motorcycle will come up and pick it up and deliver it for you within an hour).

One of Kpop's Biggest International Fan Sites is Run From a Laptop in Los Angeles

soshified-geoffrey-peng.jpg


At a performance at KCON earlier this month, Tiffany Hwang, one of nine members of the popular K-pop band Girls’ Generation, recognized a fan in the audience. It was Oanh “Soy” Nguyen — who was particularly noticeable because she'd recently dyed her hair Sailor Chibi Moon-pink.

Hwang happened to know that Nguyen's favorite Girls’ Generation member is her bandmate Yuri, so she brought over Yuri, who waved, flashed Nguyen a heart hand sign and blew her a kiss. The moment lasted less than 30 seconds, but for a die-hard fan it was a dream. And because Nguyen is the founder of Girls’ Generation’s international fan site Soshified, it was a moment she was quickly able to share with her 176 staff volunteers, 30,000 fan club members and 35,000 Twitter followers, who appeared to be just as excited about it as she was.

SM Entertainment reposts cryptic hint about f(x)’s Amber?

SM Entertainment has left fans confused after it posted a cryptic update regarding f(x) member Amber.

On September 17th, SM Entertainment posted a photo on their official Facebook page and stated it as, “To. The Fans,” further hinting on a date, September 18th, 12 PM (KST). The photo, which is in a form of a present, was a repost from Amber’s original SNS post.

Amber will be celebrating her 23rd birthday on September 18th.

I have only watched the whole thing once, years ago, and I don't know if I could do it again. Let's see...nope, made it to 5:28 before calling it quits...baby Lee Seunghyun!!! But it's so nice to see how far they've gotten. The lizard king makes lots of appearances, be warned, I'd forgotten and couldn't hit mute fast enough.
