Kim Hyun Joong”s ex-girlfriend denies any discussion or reception of settlement money in assault case

“A,” the ex-girlfriend who recently filed for the withdrawal of her lawsuit against Kim Hyun Joong on the grounds of assault on September 17, made it clear that there were no negotiations or talks over settlement money.

Her attorney told Star News on September 18, “Settlement money was never spoken of from the moment we received this case to the present moment. Without settlement money, we decided to withdraw the lawsuit after receiving the apology from Kim Hyun Joong.”

Her attorney stated, “Our client and Kim Hyun Joong did not simply date one or two times, but sincerely loved each other throughout two years of dating. It”s funny to ask him for money, and there was no reason to accept it even if it had been offered.

Assault is assault, but the problem was that her pride as a woman was hurt. That was why she wanted a sincere apology. Kim Hyun Joong showed regret and we received an apology from him, so she withdrew the lawsuit on the grounds she did not desire punishment.”

Kim Hun Joong posted an apology on his official website on Monday.

Singer-actor Kim Hyun-joong, 28, well known for his role in the KBS drama “Boys over Flowers” (2009), posted an apology on his official website Monday after being accused late last month of beating his ex-girlfriend on numerous occasions earlier this year. 

“I feel so sorry to have physically and mentally hurt the person I loved and trusted for the past two years”, he wrote in the statement, in reference to his ex-girlfriend who, according to local media, is not a celebrity. 

“I feel ashamed, as a man, to have committed an act I shouldn't have”, he continued, adding that the series of abuse was “completely” his fault. “I beg her for mercy. Having learned from this experience, I will try to live more righteously in the future”. 

As of noon yesterday, local media reported that Kim”s ex-girlfriend is currently considering withdrawing the suit. 

The case, which dates back to Aug. 22, has tarnished the princely image of the star. It began when a woman claiming to be his ex-girlfriend filed a police complaint charging that the singer had repeatedly beaten her over the course of several months. 

Local media was soon flooded with reports that one altercation had left her with a broken rib.

Before the star acknowledged he had committed physical abuse, he announced through his agency, Key East, that the broken rib was accidental and due to a “prank”.

Through this incident, I have caused serious mental and physical injuries to a person that I have trusted and loved for two years, and I am deeply sorry for that.

I feel deeply embarrassed of myself for doing things a man should not do.

As this whole case is a consequence of my wrongdoing, that person has no reason to be criticized.

I apologize to her once again, and I want to express my apologies to her family and friends as well.

Above all, I hope she will accept my apology and forgive me.

I will learn from this incident by doing my best to live a more well-behaved and healthy life.

Lawyer Sun Jong Mun revealed to news outlet Newsen during a phone call: “It is exceptional that a celebrity admits to the allegations after being charged. The plaintiff ["A"] must now assess the sincerity of Kim Hyun Joong’s apology, and then decide whether to drop the charges or not.”

“As we originally wanted Kim Hyun Joong to admit to the physical assaults, self-reflect, and apologize, we are actively inquiring into dropping the charges without any terms,” the lawyer concluded.
