Kim Hyung Joong‘s ex-girlfriend, Ms. Choi, is said to have given birth.
According to Ms. Choi’s lawyer on September 10, “Ms. Choi gave birth last week at a hospital in Seoul. Currently, the baby and the mother are healthy and they are receiving postnatal care.” They relayed that a paternity suit is in the works, saying, “For a paternity test to be done, the father’s side must give permission. However, since Kim Hyun Joong is refusing that, we will be filing a paternity suit.”
When asked whether Kim Hyun Joong knows about the birth, they replied, “I don’t believe the two of them have communicated since last May. So I am not sure whether he received news of the birth.”
During a phone call with a KeyEast representative on September 10, they revealed, “We heard about the birth through the lawyer. Since Kim Hyun Joong is currently serving in the military, we have no way of knowing whether he is aware of this.”
The representative continued, “As it has been established before, after the paternity test is complete, Kim Hyung Joong will take responsibility if the child is his. The stance hasn’t changed.” The representative then added, “The lawsuit between Ms. Choi and Kim Hyun Joong will continue as planned regardless of the birth.”
Meanwhile, Kim Hyun Joong is currently serving in the military and it was recently revealed that he canceled his first military leave due to personal reasons.
