Kim Hyun Joong and his ex-girlfriend publicly known as Ms. Choi were unable to settle their dispute during the latest court appeal.

On January 11, the appeals trial was held for the singer's case regarding damage compensation.  Choi's lawyer stated, "From the originally agreed amount of 1.6 billion KRW ($1.34 million USD) in damage charges, the amount was changed to 700 million KRW ($588,000 USD)."  The reason for the change was, "In the process of deciding whether the two people want to start their relationship over, and Kim's parents rejecting Ms. Choi's offer, a compensation for damages was established due to mental stress."

According to a source, King Hyun Joong's side revealed a total of 600 million KRW ($504,000 USD) in settlement money was paid, violating the settlement.  

On the other hand, Kim Hyun Joong's legal representative stated that Ms. Choi agonized Mr. Kim in faking a pregnancy, and insisted the related context is accurate.  Regardless, "Kim Hyun Joong believed her at that time when she claimed to have a miscarriage after the singer assaulted her. She then submitted documentations relating to the pregnancy, eventually leading to a strong response."

Also, "leading up to his military enlistment, not only was Kim Hyun Joong faced with incredible defamation, it's the question of whether he can recover and resume his celebrity life," the representative commented.

It was also revealed back on January 6 that Ms. Choi was charged with defamation and attempted fraud according to the prosecutors' publications.  

The court revealed, "This appeal's future trial will be determined after carefully reviewing the necessary documentations provided by the prosecutor," upon entering, without confirming any dates for the second trial.  

Meanwhile, Kim Hyun Joong is scheduled to be discharged from the military on February 11.

Oh, I thought this was over. >___>  Also, I'm confused; wasn't he acquitted of the assault charges, but his lawyer said he believed her when she said she lost the pregnancy due to him assaulting her?

Hi everyone. I've read several comments here and noticed many different takes. He did this and she did that, etc etc etc. Does it really matter? In one matter it does and only one. Their child. One day that child will be grown enough to read the tabloids. He/She along with thousands of others many of whom will be that child's classmate. Now, we all know this would never had been known to us in any capacity if Kim Hyun Joong hadn't been a celebrity or if he had been poor. As far as his reputation is concerned will it harm his professions? I highly doubt it IF he maintains a high standard of professionalism. And really, what does his personal life have to do with us anyway? NOTHING. So she wants a bite of the honey pot and will do what she can to get it....and make his life miserable for whatever reasons she may think she has. He on the other hand would naturally fight back because he has no recourse but to do so and any person who works in the legal department would say the same thing. Now, if in fact he is an abuser it will eventually catch up to him. Most of us believe in Karma or as it is otherwise put, "what goes around, comes around". I would like to think he is the sweet oppa in Boys Over Flowers. However, that's acting and not his real life character. On the other hand she could be a totally demanding and even mean person herself who doesn't mind throwing the first punch/slap. What matters above all else is that both of them pull up their big girl and big boy panties and settle things like adults and the parents of a shared child the ONLY one who matters..

It's very obvious at this point that she's the crazy one. Do some research. This post is fine except it assumes that all the news stories & the SK courts must be lying about her guilt.

ALLKPOP february 21st 2015 -  ( CHOi side:  WOMAN SENSE FEBRUARY  21st 2015  went on to quote  the friend who   reveled -  that KHJ  is worried  about  his  upcomming enlistment  into  the army while both families  are discussing about marriage  and the baby -  ALLKPOP  on February 23rd : After  the reports (CHoi's)  KHJ  attempted to contact Choi  again to  confirm the pregnacy, but  was not able to recieve response. Rumors  of both  families  meeting and discussing marriage  are GROUNDLESS. KHJ  stated that he was not going to marry her and that  if Choi's pregnancy  is true, then he will be  taking on the necessary responsibilities.  I  rewrite them just to remember what happened those days.  He told her clearly since the begining that he didnt want to marry her. If he thought it as posibility he casted it  away soon.  His father also said that he asked seriouly to his son if he is sure  to not marry her, he responded that it was decided,  not to marry her and that he will face what ever came, and that KHJ asked them to help him because he would be in the army and imposible to defend himself.  With that decision he lost too much ,  that is true but he will definetely throw her out of his love life and avoid to be  blackmailed. Oviously  that  he will care his baby as much CHoi and the court let him do.  that is all.

but in in this.. KHJ is losing more.. not just his career but also his reputation..

kpop_2016 ephiasus07 Friday, January 13, 2017

He lost his reputation the day she accused him. Winning all these cases is not worsening it. It's only positive for him. You can compare knetz comments then and now and you'll see.

Honestly I think assault is just as bad as lying for money (yes he did and yes she did, do your research). They both made adult decisions and are now dealing with the adult consequences. I don't feel bad for either one of them. The only real victim here is the child.

Sheila_W Ultear Thursday, January 12, 2017

No, he didn't. Do your research. It has already been proven in court that there was no assault by KHJ. That is why Choi was ordered to pay KHJ 100,000 won and the DA has approved the criminal trial against her to move forward with the charges of attempted fraud and defamation.

Ultear Sheila_W Friday, January 13, 2017

The fraud and defamation comes from the "multiple" assaults, cheating, miscarriage, and all the other BS she came up with. What the court says doesnt mean jack, because he is on record admitting do hitting her. This has been known for years lol.

kpop_2016 Ultear Friday, January 13, 2017

He admitted to an altercation, its from both sides and she started it. If you want to call it an assault, then I would say he was also assaulted by her.

teleri Ultear Friday, January 13, 2017

He never admitted to 'hitting' this creature - he said he got into a MUTUAL physical fight, pushing & shoving. THAT'S what he admitted to, as well as taking responsibility for that rib injury which he thought he'd ACCIDENTALLY caused (turned out, not so much...)

Ultear kpop_2016 Friday, January 13, 2017

I agree. It was mutual, which only proves my original point that they are both to blame. However both his agency and himself confirmed it was a physical fight and his legit words at the station were "I hit her once", As soon as you hit someone, that's assault. What else would you call it?

Ultear teleri Friday, January 13, 2017

This crap has been in the news for years. Yes he did hit her, this is so freaking basic lol. He knows how much force he used on her. Why would he think he caused her rib injury in the first place. Stop downplaying his actions. Their kid's well-being should come first. Not his career and not her dirty money.

Sheila_W Ultear Friday, January 13, 2017

The incident where they were in the mutual push/shove happened in May 2014. KHJ has never spoken publicly about this, so it's ridiculous to say that he admitted it at the station. His official police report says that after attempting to break up with her, a minor push/shove from both sides ensued in his attempt to get her out of his apartment. The claim of a rib injury, that has been proven in court to be a lie, happened in July 2014. Yes, he did admit to accidently hurting her, because Choi texted him a week later telling him that her rib had been hurt when they were together, and he believed her. Even Choi said it happened when they were "fooling around", not during a fight or assault. She never mentioned a broken rib until she filed charges against him. Turns out she was never hurt at all. It was discovered, and accepted by the court, that Choi hurt herself at the gym (probably on purpose) just a few days before filing the charges at the end of August 2014. You don't even know enough basic facts to know that these were completely different incidents.

kpop_2016 Ultear Friday, January 13, 2017

Lets not be hypocrite here, hitting someone back who's hitting you is called reaction. You would do that as well I am sure. There has been just one Gandhi this world has produced.

kpop_2016 Ultear Friday, January 13, 2017

Him trying to clear his name has nothing to do with the kid's well being. Its infact important for him to do that, so that the kid doesn't have to face problem afterwards and he can get full custody.

Ultear Sheila_W Friday, January 13, 2017

In May 2014, the first assault happened. She didn't press charges until August 2014. Choi submitted pictures, texts, and a clinic report of her saying she was hit and proof of injury (all from may). It was all authenticated and presentable for court (despite his agency and lawyer saying it was lies and edited). She received her rib injury in June 2014, not a few days before filing as you said but nice try. She claimed it was from the gym. She later went to a different clinic and said she was hit. She also accused him of hitting her other times. He only admitted to doing it once. But it doesn't matter anyway because she dropped all the charges and got back together with him. (AKA end of season 1). They continued investigation despite her dropping the charges and he payed a fine. I guess that is just my opinion though haha?

Ultear kpop_2016 Friday, January 13, 2017

I agree. It's the classic 2 wrongs don't make a right situation. I will disagree about the kid though. I think any kid growing up in an environment where his/her parents are clearly on terrible terms is a big NO. Kids don't want to see their parents in court fighting over custody and settlements. Let's just hope it ends soon for the kid.

teleri Ultear Friday, January 13, 2017

Honey, she NEVER authenticated anything in court except the one medical certificate of bruising from the May incident. That was a 2-week injury claim. PERIOD. Even the rib injury, that KHJ thought he'd accidentally done, is now shown to be compromised - two DOCTORS disagreed on the severity of that injury in fact, while she made two conflicting statements about how it occurred. Plus she contradicted both these statements in the text messages she herself released (the non-authenticated ones). WHERE are you getting that those pictures or texts that she SOLD to Dispatch were ever submitted to the authorities, let alone authenticated? You are sadly misled here. As for when said rib injury occurred, well that's up in the air too. If her statement is to be taken that it happened in June, then she waited over a MONTH to seek medical attention!!!

Ultear teleri Friday, January 13, 2017

This entire case is dirty, but easy to understand if you're not biased. If you honestly believe that all the court had was an injury claim, then more power to you :D. He admitted to doing it, he was guilty and payed the fine (she is guilty too). I don't know where you see the innocence in that. But not everyone is going to think the same I guess. Without further ado, I hope you have awesome weekend.

Sheila_W Ultear Saturday, January 14, 2017

Idiot Troll! Now you're just making crap up.

kpop_2016 Ultear Saturday, January 14, 2017

yeah .. court had all the proofs ..still they penalized her and charged with fraud

teleri Ultear Saturday, January 14, 2017

Come on, try hard to counter my arguments with facts of your own instead of just repeating lies. Where exactly are you getting that the court had anything valid other than the 2 injury claims, one of which was compromised? I'm getting MY info from news releases & reports from a variety of sources (ie not just AKP or Soompi, but NAVER & DAUM, real Korean news sites ya know). If KHJ had not admitted what he thought he was responsible for (you know, like the responsible man he is) then there's be NO case.... He was fined for that rib injury that he thought he'd caused accidentally. But oops, turned out that she'd gone to two different clinics - first one she said she fell at the gym & the doctor only certified a 3-week injury - then within the week she'd gone to another clinic, said she got assaulted & like magic the doctor there gives her a 6-week injury. Fishy as heck, that. Plus she waited a MONTH to go to the clinics in the first place - if you believe her when she said she got hurt in June. Oh & one of her texts she sold to Dispatch has her telling KHJ she got hurt while they were playing 3 different stories out of her own mouth about that injury. So yeah, show me where he's guilty of much of anything other than rank stupidity in dealing with this creature...

kpop_2016 teleri Saturday, January 14, 2017

Whats funny as well as disturbing is that she is not even firm on her own accusations, first accusing KHJ, now dropping that and accusing his parents, contradicting herself all the time- saying she was with khj on 30th May, when KHJ side proves that he was travelling to japan on 30th for his IG fanmeeting on 31st, she changes the date to 4th June. And still, all these trolls trying to justify her....shame...

kpop_2016 Saturday, January 14, 2017

Correction- she changed dates twice, as far as I remember, first from 30th to 2nd. when KHJ's fan submitted pictures of her in a restaurant with friends having alcohol and bitching about khj on 2nd June, she again changed the date to 4th

bangeryun94 Ultear Monday, January 16, 2017

Please stop. You are making me laugh so hard I'm having difficulty breathing. The Courts ruled that everything she submitted was total and completely false and all those photos she leaked on line were not authentic. He admitted to an altercation because she threatened him and blackmailed him and THEN SHE broke the terms of a forgiveness clause. The Court also proved that in just the last few months. We're not going back to 2014 because investigators have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that she lied about EVERYTHING and she forced him to say what he said. He also had no representation legally at the time relying totally on Key East legals who were looking out for the interests of Key East. If you want to rehash all that balderdash from 3 years ago and try to pass it off as authentic be prepared to be buried in facts that prove otherwise.

kpop_2016 VitaminWell Thursday, January 12, 2017

They sure were...she already lost in civil and military court, has been indicted for fraud and defamation in criminal court.

Skyepop Thursday, January 12, 2017

Well im confused. who is sueing who? Why? Can anyone explain??

lizvip Skyepop Thursday, January 12, 2017

she sued him becuaseof "domestic violance" and she said she had an abortion because of it. He apologized and even pay her money, however she had to stop talking with the media. After that they get bacl together and went to juju and couple of months she was pregnant for real, with his baby Then she went talking bad about him to the media again and even ased for more money. But the investigation continued and they found that she actually hit him first and both hitted each other ( wish make her guilty as well), she was NEVER pregnana by him befor eor have an abortion like she said,... medical information stated that fact. They said she did get preganan before and she was young , and did not knew him. So he sued her as well for defamation, and because she borke the agreement of not talking to the media, and eh probbly want to stop giving her money for something clear they both are guilty off. The thingis that now they have a baby.

teleri lizvip Thursday, January 12, 2017

Just want to point out that there was no talk of pregnancies, miscarriages or abortions before Jan/Feb 2015.....

MargtEsperanza lizvip Thursday, January 12, 2017

dont forget that she still wanted to get him back so when his parents rejected her they had to pay her again lol, and now she's being prosecuted too for all the damaged he got from the lies while she ask for more money (after a substantial discount she had to made for getting the money I said) for the couple bruises she forgot to add in the bill last time

prettychristinna Thursday, January 12, 2017
