Kim Jung Hoon Sued By Ex-Girlfriend For Allegedly Violating Loan Agreement
On February 21, Kim Jung Hoon’s ex-girlfriend filed a lawsuit against the celebrity for failing to pay her the money he had promised. The news was revealed five days later on February 26.
Kim Jung Hoon’s ex-girlfriend wrote in her accusation that he urged her to undergo abortion after finding out about her pregnancy so that he could maintain his image as a celebrity. When her residential lease agreement expired, she told him she would go live with her parents, but he promised he would provide the money for her housing and the pair found a house for her together. His original promise was to provide the 10-million-won (approximately $8,900) security deposit as well as the monthly rent, but he severed contact with her after only making the 1-million-won (approximately $900) down payment. In the document, she asked to be paid 9 million won (approximately $8,000), which is the remaining security deposit, and the monthly rent during the lease period.
A source from his agency told news outlet OSEN, “We found out about the accusation against Kim Jung Hoon through the press. We have not checked with Kim Jung Hoon himself yet. We are in the process of doing so.”
Kim Jung Hoon has been appearing in TV CHOSUN’s variety show “Taste of Love” where he said, “My desire to date someone had been decreasing because I don’t have the chance to meet anyone nowadays.” On the dating show, he was matched with non-celebrity Kim Jin Ah and received support from viewers thanks to the sweet portrayal of their relationship.
The producers of the show stated, “During our pre-production interview, he had shown eagerness to date saying, ‘It’s been over two years since I’ve dated someone.’ We believed him and got him to appear in the show. As the producers, we are very shocked to hear about this news. We hope the truth will be revealed as soon as possible.”
Kim Jung Hoon has not said anything about the matter yet.
