"K-pop star Kim Hyun-joong, 28, has been accused of assaulting his girlfriend. According to Songpa Police Friday, a woman identified as Choi claiming she is Kim’s girlfriend filed an assault complaint against the singer Wednesday. She claims to have been repeatedly assaulted by Kim at his apartment in southeastern Seoul, from May until July of this year.
The woman, who is in her late 20s claims that Kim punched and kicked her, leaving bruises on her face, chest, arms and backside, which led her to seek two weeks of medical treatment in May. In July she claims things got worse when Kim’s abuse sent her to the hospital for six weeks. Choi told police the alleged assaults revolved around problems with other women, though the police did not further elaborate.
According to police, Choi submitted medical records and other documents proving their romantic relationship. The two have been dating since 2010, Choi said.
“We keep contacting Kim’s agency, Key East Entertainment, to schedule a time to question him,” said police spokesman, Jung Chae-min. The agency reportedly said that they are investigating the situation and will release a statement.
Kim is flying out to Bangkok, Thailand today for the next performance of his “2014 Kim Hyun Joong World Tour”.”
Edit:all other accounts I’ve read said they’ve been dating since 2012… Not that it matters
Honestly I doubt anything will happen to him. The police in Korea are a joke, and Korea continually ranks as the country with the greatest gender inequality in the developed world. What will likely happen…. He’ll probably have to pay a fine… Maybe…but definitely not a big one. And his fans will harass his ex-gf to the point where she may even leave Korea. She’ll get blamed for ruining his career or tarnishing his image and everyone will forget that he’s a psycho. (If he did it) Also why the fuck are the police calling his agency in order to reach him?! And why is he still on tour if charges are being pressed against him? The Korean justice system is insane.
