Kim Hyun Joong answers a question about his son during 'When Time Stopped' press conference

Kim Hyun Joong

SS501 member Kim Hyun Joong attended the press conference for his upcoming KBS-World drama 'When Time Stopped' on October 23. 




Despite the event being held in light of the premiere of 'When Time Stopped, the singer/actor was then directed a question about his son. Kim Hyun Joong sincerely answered with, "I am sorry to the other actors and staff for such a question, when we are here to promote our drama production. However, I will try to answer honestly. Currently, I'm still in a situation where I cannot see the child. I do not know what the right thing is. Nonetheless, I believe I must do my best in my own place. For that child. This is all I can say in response. Whatever more I say can be hurtful to that child, so I will preserve my words. Because right now, I cannot see him."


Upon the press's request, Kim Hyun Joong further addressed his 4-year hiatus, and his decision to return to the entertainment industry. "After being discharged from the military, I was forced to accept so many different things happening around me, and I was shocked. There were issues and cases. I spent some time feeling lonely. I did not go outside. I debated whether or not I lived a failed life. When I began pondering how to become happy again, I heard some good things. When I opened my ears to listen, people told me, 'Have strength'. That's why I decided that I should start over again with dramas, and with music. These days, I am living hoping that each day will be a happy day. There may not be a farther future, so I am living joyfully with the mindset to just live for today," he shared.

So happy about his drama :D So furious he's not been able to see his child, and I truly wish reporters would stop harassing him. Choi Hye Mi lost ALL her court cases and appeals, admitted she lied and apologized for it. She's proven trash.

Okay, so KHJ needs to file PATERNITY 'Legal Papers' (COURT) to establish his PARENTAL RIGHTS via HEREDITY?

And KHJ has NOT done that yet? ... I did see where Ms. CHOI did DROP her LEGAL CLAIM that KHJ is the FATHER ; thus DECLINING to try for MONEY SUPPORT for their child from KHJ. IF that KHJ does FILE LEGALLY to become a PARENT of their child, does KHJ also become MONEY LIABLE to support their child? I am trying to get an IDEA as to IF that KHJ has FILED the LEGAL PAPERWORK yet in their PARENTAL situation? And if NOT, WHY the DELAY on this from KHJ ???

This kind of thing is trash journalism. the event was about the drama. do a seperate piece for his personal issues if you really must so that it can be covered clearly and not fraught with ambiguity just to get a racey headline. properly report how Choi Hye Mi dropped the paternity case before judge could issue ruling from the sealed lab report and how the was counter suing her custody/support case for full custody of the child showing he was ready to take full responcibility for child...

KHJ answered those questions with quiet grace and courage--the courage he has displayed through all this. A talented, good person has gone through so much misery because of one unbalanced and vindictive person. I hope he continues to hear more support and ignores the hate from people who just like to hate.

Aside from that, I really hate when reporters asks unrelated questions. Thi is a conference for the drama, not his personal life. I know its your job, but do it right.

Does anyone know what's the latest update from the court which happened on the 18th? Is he finally free from her yet or not?

The reporter shouldn't have asked him that at the press conference when it was clearly about the drama not about his own personal issues.

I am sincerely just curious. Henecia fan members, does KHJ communicate with his core fan members during the tough years? Does he directly keep the fans with updated news of his life and does he personally thank fans often for their support? In these tough years, if KHJ takes care of his huge fanclub. He will have a career to come back too. But if he did not, it will be very hard.

I am just curious if he does actively treasure his fans personally instead of others doing the job for him.

Why cant he see his child? She was found guilty and he was found not guilty. I see no reason to why he is not allowed to see his child. That is just not fair on child and father.

We have no clue - he won't talk about it and because Choi Hye Mi dropped the court case (for child support) there's no public records. Lots of speculations, no answers.
I agree, totally unfair.

As observation, MAYBE KHJ should have designated a DIFFERENT DAY and "Press Conference" to answer questions about his CHILD PATERNITY situation. Or just release a STATEMENT that is READ by someone? NOT saying that what was done at this 'DRAMA PROMOTIONAL' Event was okay exactly. BUT, it seems NOT a surprise to me that K-NEWS MEDIA is WONDERING about KHJ's current PERSONAL PATERNITY situation. APPARENTLY, KHJ has had LITTLE to say on the matter. So, now, KHJ gets AMBUSHED if you will. Which, NOT that much of a surprise to me that this would happen. The sad reality, NOT ILLEGAL for K-NEWS MEDIA to ask him questions about his PATERNITY situation. NOT saying anyone has to like that either.

actually he was considering making a seperate statement before then press confrence. however I dont think he was able to due to his current schedual.. he is on tour in japan right now had to fly back after a concert and now fly back for the next one.. I also think that he opted not to just do a press release because reporters would still ask the questions and as he said he doesnt like speaking of the child he cant even see because he doesnt want the child harmed..

I hate when reporters do this! This is a personal matter and should be left alone while he promotes for a drama with the other casts. I really don't think they should have to be asked who are they dating or how is their relationship about this person, things like that. I wished he had not answered it though. I'm upset for him though, he should be able to see his child.

I understand the rulings and everything thats been reported but I cannot support or advocate for this dude. He himself admitted to laying his hands on her. Regardless of everything else when he did that he lost any respect I had for him. If people choose not to support him it is their decision so people need to stop going off on people who aren't fans of his.

you seem a bit confused the people I know here and myself are not as you put it going off on people because they are not his fans.. we are going off on them for making insulting untrue comments about him... also the only time he admitted to putting his hands on her as you say was when she broke into his house and attacked him... so your claim is we should lose all respect for people who defend themselves??? Thats Poppycock. a flawed thought process. If people dont like him So What.. We are not saying they have to like him but they don't have the right to slur his name, falsly accuse him of actions the courts have proven he didnt do. before you say what about the martial arts demonstration he was fined for... well you said you understood court rulings if thats true you know military prosecutors found that he didnt harm her. before you say thats still laying hands on her nope sorry wrestling around showing off martial arts moves is pretty normal and is done in play not as an act of violence.

You obviously DON'T understand any of the court findings nor this case if you still think KHJ actually abused her, beat her, or did anything other than the one MUTUALLY physical fight which involved pushing & shoving - ie when she attacked HIM, biting & scratching (there are fan & professional concert photos/footage showing these injuries BTW - well before Choi Hye Mi went to the police). He 'lay hands on her' by pushing her out of his apartment!!! I mean, what would you do? Just let her stay, trashing your place? Yeah.
Everything she said was a lie or an exaggeration - she's admitted to lying and apologized for it, and has been convicted of both fraud and defamation. She lost every court case and appeal so far, and has to pay a huge fine.
Tell me again why you don't like him? Cause if it's over supposed 'violence' against a woman, you've not got anything to back your opinion up.

(I did GOOGLE Translate Your Above Message) ... The CHILD is *definitely* a child of both KHJ and Ms. CHOI. DNA TESTING did already prove that to the satisfaction of a COURT. But now, apparently LEGALLY, KHJ has YET to establish via COURT LEGAL ACTIONS (Paperwork, etc) that KHJ is too the LEGAL HEREDITY PARENT of their CHILD together. Ms. CHOI is obviously the MOTHER, as she gave BIRTH at the HOSPITAL. BUT also, Ms. CHOI is NOT presently claiming that KHJ is actually the HEREDITARY FATHER. So, currently, Ms. CHOI does also DECLINE any MONEY SUPPORT from KHJ on that 'CHILD Together' basis. KHJ needs to DO something LEGAL, apparently (via S.K COURT activity), IF he wants any PARENTAL RIGHTS in his situation.

Krell I just have to ask you this... The eleventh hour retraction of the paternity case just before the court was set to make a ruling on it. when her lawyer supposedly has confirmation of a possitive dna match that some anonamous hospital staff confirmed in hand. doesnt it make you even a little tiny bit suspicious that the child might not actually be KHJ. Because up until that moment I honestly believed the child to be KHJs.. Since that moment I just cant bring myself to believe it.. that action is inconsistant with everything she had done upto that point except her refusal to go for dna test until the court actually ordered her to...both intellectual and emotional responce tells me something is off about this.
