Kim Hyun Joong And His Ex-Girlfriend To Head To Supreme Court
Kim Hyun Joong and his ex-girlfriend’s ongoing legal battles will continue in the Supreme Court.
According to a source in legal circles, the legal representative of Kim Hyun Joong’s girlfriend (hereafter referred to as “A”) has appealed the second trial for the claim for damages from Kim Hyun Joong. The appeal will be taken to the Supreme Court.
Previously, on October 10, the court upheld the verdict from the first trial and ruled that “A” pay Kim Hyun Joong 100 million won (approximately $88,000). However, due to the fact that she is appealed this ruling, the case will be heading to the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, the two have yet to end their legal dispute over the attempted fraud and libel charges against “A.” After the prosecution indicted her without detention in 2017 on these two charges, the first trial court fined her 5 million won (approximately $4,400) for attempted fraud. However, the court found her innocent of libel through publications. Thus, the prosecution appealed this ruling, but the second trial maintained the original ruling. This led to the prosecution submitting a petition for an appeal against the second ruling on October 23.
