My first biased in kpop industry. Now I wonder if he's trying to ruin his life. You are better than this KHJ. Jeongsincharyo!

People should admit to themselves that YOU dont hate him for his past scandal, you dont hate him for his DUI, you dont hate him for the fines price, YOU hate him because no matter how much you step on him he still STANDS UP! and you cant deal with it.

Longan_Lychee 4ever_VIP Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Delulu fan. I didn’t hate him at all during his BOF days. I started looking down upon him with contempt after the way he treated his own son and his son’s mother publicly. Now go make the Tinder and write on your profile ''ddlg into anal'', and people will swipe right like there’s no tomorrow. No need to wait for that martial arts expert’s comeback

Try telling that to bereaved families, see how it goes down.

4ever_VIP KirbyX Thursday, April 27, 2017

try telling that to the family of this guy who didnt hurt anyone but still is being trashed more than even a murderer is

Longan_Lychee 4ever_VIP Thursday, April 27, 2017

Tell this to his son who’s gonna grow up and read what a scum his daddy was.The time he should have taken care of him and focused on his fatherhood, he was spending it drinking, partying and DUI. What a great start in life. He was unwanted, had to be proven by DNA tests that he is indeed his fathers son, and on top of that, his daddy wants to come back in ent world, probably to find new young girls to attack their buttholes

4ever_VIP Longan_Lychee Thursday, April 27, 2017

Sorry I only argue with people with brains, you can just keep going on by yourself

Longan_Lychee 4ever_VIP Thursday, April 27, 2017

Yes, I argue with people with brains too :) That’s why I didn’t argue with you, only suggested you to make that Tinder :)

KHJUSAfan Longan_Lychee Friday, April 28, 2017

Wow thanks so much for providing a perfect example of ms chois crimes of liable slander defemation and fraud. She is currently facing criminal charges for these acts and did you know that because this is a media site your commiting the same crime. How ingenious of you to think of being a copycat criminal. I bet your so proud of yourself. Bravo for showing your lack of not only intelligence but honor.

Longan_Lychee KHJUSAfan Friday, April 28, 2017

Hahahahah ’’defamation and fraud’’.. uh.. okay. Keep being delusional and believing in your ’’pure and innocent’’ oppar. That ’’Choi bitch’’ is the mother of his BABY and also once was an intimate partner. Poor baby has to suffer because of his scum of a father. Of course it’s so much easier to put all the blame on ’’Choi bitch''. She was the apple and he was the Eve that fell for this apple. He was innocent all along, but did a sin only because he was tempted by that apple, which turned into a snake after all. It’s all okay because everyone is a sinner, and it was that ’’Choi bitch’s’’ fault that he turned out like this. It’s okay... all okay.. Keep being deluded :)

Civvic Tuesday, April 25, 2017

case closed! looking forward to his comeback :-) :-) :-)

Longan_Lychee Civvic Wednesday, April 26, 2017

You know, you can easily make an Ashley Madison profile or Tinder to look for daddies that would be more than happy to take your anal virginity. No need to wait for this butthole attacker’s comeback :)

Civvic Longan_Lychee Wednesday, April 26, 2017

ur such a rude person....but its okay I forgive you.. God bless.

Longan_Lychee Civvic Thursday, April 27, 2017

You know, you're a nice person so I take back what I said :)

adorabible Tuesday, April 25, 2017

He was fined for falling asleep at a red light.  Penalty will be paid.  I think his handlers will make sure he where he will need to be.  This situation is over.

pink_oracle adorabible Tuesday, April 25, 2017

He was fined for being over the drink limit to drive. Passing out while driving was how they discovered him.

malmalmal pink_oracle Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Honestly, 2 beers and passing out? hilarious excuse.

pink_oracle malmalmal Wednesday, April 26, 2017

He has two kids you know, because he's also the father of lies.

malmalmal pink_oracle Wednesday, April 26, 2017

So true!

pink_oracle Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Oh no, pocket change, I bet that's really going to set him on the straight and narrow for life now. Next time he can drive drunk with his unwanted baby in the backseat.

malmalmal pink_oracle Wednesday, April 26, 2017

do you know why this DUI incident happened on 26th March, but only reported on 30th or 31st? what happened during the 5-6 days? Interesting to know what took media this long to report on this? Money plays a role ?

pink_oracle malmalmal Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Well it's not like the police put these stories out. If the press didn't find out about it at the time then sure, it would take a few days before someone got a hold of the story.

malmalmal pink_oracle Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Kdramas often show reporters camping out in police stations. I guess on March 26th all reporters were on vacation?

pink_oracle malmalmal Thursday, April 27, 2017

It was about 4am, and I don't think Kim was actually taken to the station.

kpopfan7 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Eh I'm out of Kim Hyun Joong Kdrama jokes. lol

Longan_Lychee Tuesday, April 25, 2017

This butthole attacker with strong semen, ribcage cracker with his martial arts expertise and pregnancy termination coercer got off reaaaallly easy considering how grave his offense was. They really need to change the legislation there, so people would be safer on roads. If I ever see him coming back or giving interviews where he expresses his desire to come back, I will consider him as a desperate attention whore

adorabible Longan_Lychee Thursday, April 27, 2017

you really seemed to be obsessed with KHJ. Are you Choi or just a Choi wannabe? The way you talk is so disgusting and vulgar kinda like the text messages that were proved to be falsified. I see a common theme here. If you hate him that much just leave this page and don't bother reading his articles. Your hatred is really boring. Also, respectable women do not speak as you do.

Longan_Lychee adorabible Friday, April 28, 2017

’’Text messages were proved to be ’falsified’’’ Yeah.. right.. stay in your delulu land :)

KirbyX Tuesday, April 25, 2017

fackin' knob

lmm913 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

$1,800? That's it? His blood alcohol level was 2.5 times the legal limit, which is higher than what the law is for having your license revoked. I'm not asking for jail time here. But come on! Making this fool pay $1,800? That's fucking pennies to him.

MargtEsperanza lmm913 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

You think is too little? in my country with 1.800 US dolars you get to buy a used car or pay like 10 months of house rent... TO YOU is too little

Longan_Lychee lmm913 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Exactly. It’s fucking pennies to this martial arts expert. He got off really easy. They should have taken off his license and the car should have been taken from him like they do in my country. The legislation needs to change, because South-Korea is leading in traffic casualties and these kinds of pathetic penalties don’t help at all

Chrysantheneum lmm913 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

But his license HAS been suspended.

allkpopellie Chrysantheneum Tuesday, April 25, 2017

He's gone drive with no license. I wouldn't be surprised.

lmm913 Chrysantheneum Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Exactly. He got the celebrity treatment of getting his license suspended. If it had been an ordinary citizen, they would have gotten it revoked.

lmm913 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

I would like to clarify my mistake earlier when i said that his BAL was 2.5times the legal limit. what i meant to say is that it was 50% higher than the limit at which you get your license taken away. That's just how shitfaced he was.

lmm913 MargtEsperanza Wednesday, April 26, 2017

yeah and to a homeless person $1,800 might as well be $18billion. Wtf is your point? I said that to KHJ $1,800 is nothing, not that $1,800 means nothing to every person on the fucking planet. maybe you should save up for some lessons in reading comprehension instead of some shitty car.

MargtEsperanza lmm913 Wednesday, April 26, 2017

the law is the same for everyone rich or poor, the fines are usually equally for everyone, not just because he is rich he has to pay more... the amount for a regular person is appropriate as "punishment" for a DUI where there's not damage to repair or victims to compensate. Get over your inferiority complex before you complain, you are mad just because he didnt lose all his assets as you wished

Chrysantheneum lmm913 Wednesday, April 26, 2017

I don't know the regulations of Korea on drunk driving, maybe that your country is more strict on this than Korea is. I know that the fine for his DUI in my country would've been around €600-700, which is 550-650 dollars, AS LONG there had been no accident and no damage to proprety. So to me, 1800 dollar seems like a lot of money. You do get your license suspended in my country, but depending on the severity of the case, it can be revoked up til 12 months and a mandatory course on drunk driving. So I don't think 1800 is "the celebrity treatment" as long as he didn't damage anything.

malmalmal allkpopellie Wednesday, April 26, 2017

probably still drinking and ??

lmm913 MargtEsperanza Wednesday, April 26, 2017

here you go again talking shit. at no point did i say that this dude should be fined billions of dollars. but $1,800 as his only punishment is laughable. they could have done something more like also giving him community service. suspending his license when he has a manager to drive him around and fining him $1,800 when he's wealthy won't do anything to correct his behavior. Oh and as for the stupidity of "having and inferiority complex", don't get angry at me because I called you out for your utter lack of reading comprehension. You only have yourself to blame for that shortcoming.

MargtEsperanza lmm913 Wednesday, April 26, 2017

the only reason I talked about your inferiority complex is because you keep ranting about "how rich he is", for a regular person is good enough punishment but for him because he is rich they should add more is what you are saying, SO if some 70 yo guy get sentenced to 20 years of prison and a 20yo one gets the same 20 years for the same crime, the old guy will spend the rest of his life in jail while the younger will finish his sentence and still have a whole life ahead of him, so with your way of thinking the younger guy should get 40 or 60 years of conviction so he experiences the same loss as the old man, both of them should die in jail right? To be "fair", the same with this if the poor guy pays a fine for DUI that's half of his assets or 2 - 3 of his salaries then a rich guy should pay the same half of his assets or 2-3 times his earnings... I dont see how this works in your head as a "fair" process, because you are actually victimizing the offender just to "equally" punish everyone, that's why I said we are all the same under the law, rich, poor, young, old, men, women, the one being measured to calculate the punishment should be the crime, not the criminal...

lmm913 MargtEsperanza Wednesday, April 26, 2017

I'm not saying that KHJ should get a harsher punishment for being a celebrity. I'm saying that the punishment for DUI's in general should be harsher since they do nothing to discourage this behavior in the future. Specially for a celebrity like KHJ where the punishment means absolutely NOTHING to him. The ass backwards country of South Korea gives out jail time for someone who went on vacation to another country and might have smoked a joint, but put peoples lives in danger by getting behind the wheel of an automobile while drunk and what do you get? An $1,800 fine and your license suspended or possibly revoked.

MargtEsperanza lmm913 Wednesday, April 26, 2017

yeah I think there are a lot of laws that should be updated, amended, revised or created not just in korea, I dont actually know "how" they could be more fair, I dont have that knowledge at all, I just know things need to be fixed up or be more acurate, but still I get why punishments tend to be always too lenient, the justice system has flaws and the people running it have them too, so the standard punishment tend to be something that even if they make a mistake, the one being punished wont get it too bad, then everyone gets punished by that standard even if there's no doubt or chances that theres a flaw in the judgment because there's only one law for everyone. Harsher laws would be great for every crime but we would need a flawless justice system to make sure no innocent gets unfairly harshly punished

tomh7259 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

From what I've read, this is not his first time, so IMO, this is not a serious penalty. Here in The State Of Arizona USA, this is the average penalty for a FIRST TIME DUI: 90 Days Suspension Of Drivers License. Reinstatement cost $260, Incarceration in prison for 24 hours, Fine of $1,600, Installation of ignition interlock device, which must be blown into to verify sobriety before allowing vehicle start. Average cost $170, Attorney Fees average $1600, Court Fees average $1100, Increase in Auto Insurance Average $800/year, Traffic School or Substance Abuse Counselling average cost $360, If nobody available to drive your car away, then Towing and storage average cost $170. Total Average cost of first time DUI = $5,800, Plus the prison time.

qwerty_Kpop tomh7259 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

where did you read its not his first time? dont make things up...

allkpopellie tomh7259 Tuesday, April 25, 2017

I swear we get jail time in the US lol, for real, so unfair for the drunk driver lol, and they tow the car too. The driver has to pay the tow and the impound lot fees too. Of course, the impound lot opens 1-4 pm, so if he/she can't make it, the $$$ goes up.

tomh7259 qwerty_Kpop Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Oh sorry, but the point still remains, that a $1774 fine for DUI is ridiculous.

lmm913 tomh7259 Wednesday, April 26, 2017

how is $1,800 too high? the dude put his life, and the lives of other motorists and pedestrians at risk.

tomh7259 lmm913 Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Your comment is in error. Try reading the original post, where I CRITICIZED the amount as being TOO LOW. Thank You.
