Singer-actor Kim Hyun Joong‘s legal representative has taken a further step to clarify the confusion surrounding the alleged pregnancy and miscarriage of the star’s ex-girlfriend, Choi.
On May 22, the 25th civil department of the Seoul Central District Court has requested reports from five different medical clinics and the National Health Insurance Service, as per Kim Hyun Joong’s request.
Kim Hyun Joong’s lawyer Lee Jae Man told news outlet Star News on May 26, “We are planning on receiving information from the clinic that Choi has revealed to have gone,” adding, “out of the five clinics mentioned, we are not sure where she received the miscarriage report and pregnancy report. We are currently waiting to hear back.”
The star’s ex-girlfriend Choi has claimed that she is currently pregnant with Kim Hyun Joong’s child, and that she had a miscarriage after being physically assaulted by the star in June of last year. Regarding this accusation, his lawyer commented, “We do not have concrete proof that Choi was pregnant and miscarried the child last year. When we receive the medical reports, they will be definitive evidence that could be used in court.”
The two sides will hold a pretrial conference on June 12 regarding the alimony demanded by Choi.
Kim Hyun Joong is currently enlisted for his mandatory military service, but will continue with the legal procedures through his legal representative.
