The Seoul Prosecutor’s Office announced on January 18 that they will charge ‘Choi’ for defamation and attempted fraud.
The Prosecutor’s office has announced that select KakaoTalk conversations, pregnancy tests and miscarriage claims by ‘Choi’ are false. After reviewing all the documents, it was concluded that ‘Choi’ was never pregnant when she claimed she had a miscarriage.
In the upcoming trial in March, the focus in the trial will be on ‘Choi’ and her false accusations against Kim Hyun Joong and the defamation of character against him.
While, Kim Hyun Joong is set to be discharged from the army in February 11th, many people are now questioning the legitimacy of the baby that was born in September of 2015, and was confirmed to be his biological son in December of 2015.
While no clear reports have been made on the alleged biological son of Kim Hyun Joong, more will be clear after Kim Hyun Joong and Choi face each other in court on March 30th.
