Kim Hyun Joong rumored to be engaged and an expectant father; he denies it
Kim Hyun Joong's girlfriend is 10 weeks pregnant, according to news reports by TV Report and Newsen.
Over the weekend, a source close to the couple told the media outlets he reconciled with his ex-girlfriend, http://www.dramafever.com/news/update-kim-hyun-joong-indicted-in-assault-case-faces-fine/" target="_blank">who previously filed domestic abuse charges against him. Their parents are even considering marriage for the pair. They speculate he is concerned about the baby and marriage plans due to his upcoming military enlistment.
“Kim Hyun Joong has reconciled with his ex-girlfriend, and they will be having a child together," Women's Sense magazine stated. "The pregnant [girlfriend] is the non-celebrity that had previously filed charges against Kim Hyun Joong for assault and battery.”
Today, the singer's agency responded with the following press release:
"... It is true that Kim Hyun Joong and Choi met after the lawsuit, however, they decided to break up at the end of the year. A few days later, Choi told Kim Hyun Joong that she was pregnant. Kim Hyun Joong and his parents have attempted to contact Choi and her parents and requested that both families meet and discuss the current situation of the expectant mother. So, they can make a visit to the agreed hospital and doctor for examination. However, Choi denied these requests and cannot be contacted.
"After the reports, Kim Hyun Joong attempted to contact Choi again to confirm the pregnancy, but he didn't receive a response. Rumors of both families meeting and discussing marriage are groundless. Kim Hyun Joong stated that if Choi's pregnancy is true, then he will be taking the necessary responsibilities. We ask to refrain from releasing news reports that stretch the meanings of one sided opinions when the truth has not yet been confirmed."
