UPDATE: Kim Hyun Joong's assault case deepens with text messages and injury photos
**Warning: This post contains graphic images**
The assault case involving actor and singer, Kim Hyun Joong seems to be getting more confusing with each passing day. So far what we know is girl "A" was dating KHJ and filed a suit claiming he physically assaulted her numerous times between the months of May and July of this year, which you can read more about here. Then his agency, Key East Entertainment released a statement saying there was in fact a physical altercation between the couple, but not to the extent "A" is claiming which you can read more about here. Now Dispatch, which is the news outlet in Korea that always seems to uncover celebrity relationships and other scandals, released possible evidence that could in fact support the claims made by KHJ's girlfriend.
The so-called evidence are pictures of the two, their text messages, and newly released photos of the injuries "A" allegedly sustained at the hands of KHJ. These photos show KHJ with "A" both in 2012 and 2014. According to "A", the two have been in a relationship since 2012. According to Key East, the two have only known each other since 2012 but have recently started dating in the last few months.
Now, according to Dispatch these are text messages KHJ sent to "A" both in 2013 and 2014. In 2013 KHJ supposedly sent messages saying he missed her, he loved her, and asking if she wanted to live with him. Again, if these messages are real, it conflicts with Key East's statement of the two only recently being in a relationship. The message KHJ supposedly sent in August 2014 is an apology reading: "I'm sorry. I hope you rediscover the two years that you had lost. This is how I truly feel."
There are more text messages that have been revealed from "A" where she says: "I have bruises all over my body. It hurts. I have no reason to be beaten."
KHJ supposedly responded with: "I don't know why I did this to you as I knew that I would be sorry the next day. I am sorry that you were bruised and hurt. Hope you get better soon. I am really sorry."
Below are the most recent developments in the case: photos of injuries "A" allegedly sustained at the hands of KHJ.
