Kim Hyun-joong, no wings are needed to fall

2017/04/06 | Permalink | Source

Abuse, pregnancy, miscarriage and drunk driving: there's no righteous Kim Hyun-joong.

It's been 3 years since he was sued for abusing his ex-girlfriend 'A'. However, his dark days still continue. Existence of his girlfriend then came out and text messages between them also surfaced. This affected Kim Hyun-joong's image greatly. He chose to join National Service but the trial is still ongoing even after his 21 months of duty and on top of that, he was recently caught driving under intoxication. It looks like he's going to have a hard time regaining his good reputation.

- The start of falling, the lawsuit

Kim Hyun-joong was a popular Hallyu star. He achieved recognition for the KBS 2TV drama "Inspiring Generation" and he became so big, he planned tours in Asia and all over the world. However, 'A' publicly announced that she was abused by Kim and required 2 and 6 weeks of medical treatment. Along with the doctor's statement, she filed for a lawsuit against him. Not long after, she decided to cancel the charges but Kim was still hit with a fine.

- 1,6 billion won in lawsuit and the birth of Kim Hyun-joong's son

While the case seemed to come to an end, 'A' sued Kim again with 1,6 billion won in compensation for pregnancy, abuse and manipulation of abortion. The shocking thing was, they had started seeing each other again after the first lawsuit and 'A' was pregnant with Kim's child.

During the lawsuit, Kim went off to military and 'A' lost the case right before he got out. However, DNA tests showed the child belonged to Kim and put a big mark on his reputation. 'A' appealed for to court but the original trial already sided with Kim. Kim Hyun-joong had a short interview on the day of his discharge and said something about 'the second round' of his life and even planned to have a fan meeting on April 29.

- Drunk driving and lies

Kim Hyun-joong made everything go to waste by driving drunk in March. On the 30th of March, the first trial was held under the charges of fraud on 'A'. Kim Hyun-joong attended the trial as a witness.

Key East claimed that Kim had driven not more than 1 kilometer for parking reasons but regardless, they apologized for his actions. However, this was a lie. It turned out he was 3 kilometers away from the place he claimed to be drinking. He was also asleep for 15 minutes on the spot where he was arrested.

Kim will go on with his fan meeting on the 29th as it's a promise he must keep with his fans. However, his future activities won't be so promising.
