In the wake of the long scandal involving Kim Hyun Joong, ex-girlfriend (known only as Ms. Choi) has decided to officially lodge a complaint against netizens who posted malicious comments about her.
While her lawyers have announced that she is filing charges, they say they cannot yet comment on the charges themselves. However, it has been reported that they have requested that over a hundred netizens be investigated by the police.
The comments were likely related to the controversy in which she accused Kim Hyun Joong of assaulting her and then dropped the charges after he made an apology, later reconciled with him, and then revealed that she is pregnant. Some netizens have not been kind to her throughout this process, and her lawyers have said that she suffered psychological distress due to some of their malicious comments.
Her lawyers announced on May 4 that they were filing the charges because the insults and libel that were directed towards her and her unborn child were “beyond the level of common sense.”
Kim Hyun Joong’s agency has stated that he does not know anything about the legal action that his ex-girlfriend is taking.
