According to the September 22 ruling of the ROK Army prosecution, Kim Hyun Joong was acquitted of all the charges his ex-partner Choi brought against him, including blackmail and fraud. 

Kim Hyun Joong had filed suit against Choi with charges of blackmail, fraud, false accusations, defamation of character, and more last July, and Choi had countersued the actor with charges of false accusations and defamation of character. The prosecution arrived at the conclusion that none of the charges filed by Choi was valid.

Prosecution deemed that there is little to no credibility behind Choi's claims that she had to receive a six-week medical treatment for her fractured ribs which resulted from Kim Hyun Joong's alleged assault. Choi had reportedly said at the hospital that the injuries were from bumping into workout equipment, and the fact that she refused to provide a medical diagnosis only served to void her claims further. 

Additionally, as the 600 million KRW settlement amount to cover up the assault and miscarriage is considerably large, prosecution judged that it is hard to believe Choi's claims that she never blackmailed Kim Hyun Joong. 

Prosecution arrived at the conclusion that Kim's charges of blackmail against Choi cannot be deemed a false accusation as the text messages which were leaked in the media greatly contradicted Choi's claims. Prosecution also judged that Choi's mother's text messages to Choi seemed to suggest behavior that is conducive to blackmail. 

Choi's claims that she experienced a miscarriage due to assault and that Kim Hyun Joong demanded for her to get an abortion were deemed unsubstantial, as well, based on documented material from the hospital that she was not with child at the time. 

Previously, this past August 10, Seoul Central District Court had also stated that it cannot accept Choi's assault and miscarriage claims as true, and ruled for 100 million KRW to be returned to Kim Hyun Joong. 

Kim Hyun Joong was also acquitted of the defamation charges Choi filed against him. Prosecution judged that Kim's interviews which were covered extensively by the media were not defamation toward Choi but rather, a response to Choi's interviews. The false accusations of defamation which Choi filed against Kim Hyun Joong were also dropped for the same reason. Because Kim Hyun Joong's lawsuits were not based on fraudulent grounds, prosecution concluded that they cannot be ruled as false accusations.

    Her text messages also gave evidence of some guilt. Of course, you can't expect justice in Korea where wealthy people rule.

    Okay, the *initial* situation of KIM HYUN JOONG stating that Ms. CHOI was injured via a "Martial Arts Demonstration" gone wrong; is NOW VOIDED. Because the COURT finds that there was NO INJURY to Ms. CHOI from that KHJ 'Martial Arts Demonstration' event situation. And now, what is LEFT to determine, is IF Ms. CHOI will be found guilty of possible CRIMINAL BLACKMAIL of KHJ in this situation. And also, KHJ is *likely* to try to get FULL CUSTODY of his CHILD. In particular, IF KHJ can make say a CRIMINAL BLACKMAIL CHARGE to 'stick' to Ms. CHOI. It does look BAD for Ms. CHOI at this point. I *wonder* IF she will even have ANY of the $550,000 USD (less $100,000 USD already, going back to KHJ) remaining once her LEGAL FEES are paid.

    I should add that KHJ did only say to INVESTIGATORS of this "Martial Arts Demonstration" accidental situation. KHJ did NOT ever say of it in a COURT of LAW, or have it verified either. Which now, again, that Ms. CHOI *injury claim* is now VOIDED by the COURT finding.

    Oooops, I may have this a bit confused. The *injury claim* for the *supposed* pregnancy is a DIFFERENT event than the 'Martial Arts Demonstration' event. STILL, you have to WONDER about the *injury claims* related to the 'MARTIAL ARTS DEMONSTRATION' too, at this point. Again, it looks BAD for Ms. CHOI.

    Ms. CHOI will be FORTUNATE if she can AVOID to be convicted of CRIMINAL CHARGES (BLACKMAIL, or like that) at this point. I will *guess* say a 75% CHANCE that Ms. CHOI is found GUILTY of some kind of *significant* CRIMINAL CHARGE. And that she does some JAIL TIME as a result.

    He was found innocent of all charges including the assault charge that started this shit storm. She was found to have blackmailed him over that incident. She has to pay a portion of that settlement back and if and when she is tried she may have to pay all of it back.

    My thinking was that on the "MARTIAL ARTS DEMONSTRATION" event, that this was 'settled' OUT OF COURT for the MONEY that Ms. CHOI got it for DROPPING CHARGES. I am NOT clear how a COURT can then 'turn around' and consider THAT 'MARTIAL ARTS DEMO' event in a TRAIL like this. Plus, that would be a CRIMINAL CHARGE situation. And I thought that all of this was a CIVIL CASE, where Ms. CHOI was trying to get MONEY. I realize that some of the FINDINGS and EVIDENCE will be considered soon in a CRIMINAL COURT about Ms. CHOI doing possible CRIMINAL BLACKMAIL of KHJ. But anyway, we *agree* that KIM HYUN JOONG is *NOT* guilty of ANYTHING at this point. And it only remains to see if Ms. CHOI will be found guilty or not of CRIMINAL activity.

    Dont forget even after her doctor confirmed that she was not pregnant, she still lied to KHJ that she was in the waiting room, under drugs and was waiting for the abortion procedure; KHJ believing all these lies gave her KRW100M. And who knows before that what lies she said to KHJ to extort his money.

    This martial art statement was made by Choi after the KRW600M settlement which was not known then and when she dropped the other 3 assault charges against KHJ. For criminal charges the police will still continue to investigate even if the complainant later dropped the charges. This was to make sure that the complainant was not under duress when she drpped the charges. i.e to make sure she was not forced or threatened to drop the charges. This was what happened in KHJ case. 4 assault charges were investigated and 1 was brought to court. Khj was fined for that charged i.e the one he admitted to the police that he might have hit her during their altercation. And for the other 3 charges the police /prosecutors found there was no evidences and proof of any assault and therefore khj was not charged in court. The same as to prosecutor/police decision to not charged Choi in court for blackmailing and money extortion case in June this year. But again we were lost in the translation. In June the report said Choi was accquited of all charges. This was wrong used of legal terms. When you used the word accquited, it should be used after court verdict. Which means only if the prosecutor had charged choi in court n court and find her not guilty. But this wasnt the case. The police found just like in khj assault case that, there was not enough evidence to charge in court. Same goes with the word prosecution. If you used this word it should be case where the police/prosecutor is involved i.e in criminal charges. Because in criminal charges prosecutor is the one represent the victim/plaintiff and a lawyer represent the defendent. So in sivil suit report should use court verdict or ruling.

    It was proven that she did NOT sustain injuries from him in August 2014. They were fabricated and she forced him or blackmailed him into settling. She signed a forgiveness statement which she then violated. EVERYTHING she accused him of has been proven to be false. Also don't confuse terms like civil and criminal cases. He was charged with causing a miscarriage in this trial among other things. She lied. He won. The End.

    Yes, we seem to mostly 'agree' in that the ONE COMPLAINT was that was INVESTIGATED, was resolved via the SETTLEMENT that took place with KIM HYUN JOONG paying the $5000 USD FINE. And also, KHJ did *NOT* ever admit to any GUILT of a CRIMINAL ASSAULT nature.

    IF what you say is true, about the "MARTIAL ARTS DEMONSTRATION" event to have been FALSIFIED by Ms. CHOI. *THEN* it would *seem* to me that a CONVICTION of Ms. CHOI for CRIMINAL BLACKMAIL (and likely JAIL TIME) would be an easy 'Slam Dunk' outcome in the near future.

    Yes, it would seem that way. But judges in Korea like to flex their muscles. It just depends on who her judges are. (Sometimes judges in Korea base their decisions on egos and not law)

    Krell - the rib injury didn't happen in the one fight KHJ admitted to (the one he said was mutual, that involved per him pushing & shoving - the one which Choi Hye My claimed caused her to miscarry the phantom baby she was not pregnant with at the time....). That happened end of May 2014. The rib injury happened later (June? not sure) and she did take over 3 weeks to go to a clinic. She told KHJ he'd caused it - he figured it had to have happened when he showed off his martial arts moves - she told the first clinic it happened at a gym. Most damning, that first clinic only gave her a 3-week injury statement. So however that injury happened, the two CLINICS evaluated the injury differently.... Now of course two courts have ruled that Choi Hye Mi lied :D I might add that July 2014 she broke into his apartment (w/her BFF or sister) where KHJ & another girl were - so witnesses. We actually don't know much about that altercation, except that Choi claimed to have been beaten for 30 minutes which again is totally unsubstantiated. That is where there was CCTV footage from a security camera (the public does NOT have any idea what's on it) showing the hallway & door - plus the security guards were called to remove her. Obviously there's nothing that incriminates KHJ from that incident considering these latest court findings.

    To be honest, I am NOT clear that the S.K COURT does want to put Ms. CHOI in JAIL for all of this. MAYBE Ms. CHOI should plead like 'TEMPORARY INSANITY' brought on by her disappointment with KIM HYUN JOONG that their *romantic* relationship was/is over. I do *not* see KHJ as the 'nice guy' and 'victim' in all of this exactly. But yes, it *does* appear that Ms. CHOI has *lied* about some *important* matters.

    I agree that the reason the prosecutor didn't send the case to trial was exactly as you say. But KHJ has indeed been victimized by this crazy creature. He's not been 'bad' - he simply chose a psycho for a GF. We've all (well a good many of us) have made bad choices - but that doesn't mean we should be reamed over the coals for it. KHJ is NOT responsible for Choi Hye Mi's craziness and he doesn't deserve the total scandalous mess she's dragged him through.

    Choi didnt lie about some important matters, she lied about everything. Livibg together, pregnancies, assaults, miscarriages. Her claimed that she was beaten to death for 30 min with bff as witness never been said in court. Her pictures of bruises she didclosed through Dispatch was never revealed in her KBS interview and in court. Why? Because all are lies and she knew its felony and criminsl charges xan be brought to her.

    Minion! You didn't die of shame after all! I love it - comparing KHJ to OJ Simpson now? Wow - you know OJ either slaughtered his ex-wife & her new BF with a butcher knife, or paid some goon to do so. I'd say HUGE difference there. Also, OJ may have been cleared of criminal charges but he got hammered in civil court - that reminds me a lot more of Choi Hye Mi than KHJ LOL

    South Korean Court seems to think he is indeed innocent. They called your girl out in court, using the words "blackmail" and "LIAR" You keep defending her sugar. She's all but been abandoned. Even her "best friend" is nowhere to be found. I applaud you standing by your convictions. But you don't have shit for facts now. Good luck and take care.

    It would *seem* as though Ms. CHOI was willing to justify ANY LIES in order to get the MONEY from KHJ that she somehow felt that she deserved it. At this point, it seems a *real possibility* that Ms. CHOI will NOT get much MONEY out KHJ at all. CONCEIVABLY, KHJ might end up with SOLE CUSTODY of his child, And Ms. CHOI could end up in JAIL for awhile. I will *guess* that Ms. CHOI's *lawyer* ends up with a LOT of the $450,000 USD that Ms. CHOI did originally get it from KHJ for the 'MARTIAL ARTS DEMONSTRATION' incident settlement. I will *guess* that Ms. CHOI might have done FAR BETTER *originally* to negotiate a PRIVATE SETTLEMENT with KHJ on how to handle a JOINT CUSTODY situation. It would appear to be a 'TOO LATE NOW' situation for Ms. CHOI, at this point.

    Indeed. She's already been ordered to pay KHJ a portion back. It's possible that by the time her trials are finished, he will recoup all of the money. I just hope that he doesn't decide to drop the charges against her now that he has been cleared of everything.

    I would *guess* that KHJ is going to 'go all out' to get some kind of CRIMINAL CHARGE CONVICTION against Ms. CHOI. IF he can do that (conviction or Ms. CHOI), THEN KHJ can look at trying for SOLE CUSTODY of his CHILD.
