It has been revealed that Kim Hyun Joong's ex-girlfriend has filed a damage lawsuit against the singer-turned-actor.
It said she's suing him for the psychological pain and suffering she's experienced through the recent ordeal.
Y-News revealed on May 4th that Ms. Choi filed the damage suit last month asking for 1.6 billion KRW (~ 1.8 million USD) in compensation for the psychological and emotional stress and suffering she had to go through while in the midst of pregnancy.
Legal representative of Kim Hyung Joong told media outlet DongA, "We've confirmed the lawsuit of Ms. Choi. Currently, we are seeking a way to respond. This case is not something that we will negotiate on to settle. We will be taking strong measures, and if needed, we are willing to countersue."
As previously reported, Ms. Choi has also filed a mass lawsuit, looking to take action against over 100 netizens who posted malicious comments and spread rumors about her.
Meanwhile, Kim Hyun Joong previously delayed his military enlistment back in March, and was thus expected to enlist sometime this month.
