Kim Hyun Joong's agency KeyEast Entertainment has released an official statement concerning the allegations of assault made against the actor and singer.
According to allkpop, on August 23, KeyEast Entertainment presented Kim Hyun Joong's side of what occurred, casting doubt on the alleged "repeated attacks" suffered by his girlfriend as well as other reported facts.
The agency stated, "After confirming [with Kim Hyun Joong], we found that it's true the two parties have known each other since 2012, but they didn't start dating until a few months ago... In the middle of their relationship, the two had an intense exchange of words. Though it's true that in their heightened emotional state things got physical, it's not true that there was continual physical assaults or that she's been battered and beaten over the past two months like what was reported."
In terms of the reports that the woman in question suffered fractured ribs, KeyEast said,
"Their physical fight was a one time occurrence, and her fractured ribs didn't occur due to their recent argument. Her ribs were injured when they were playing around previously, and the next day, they met with acquaintances. As there didn't seem to be anything abnormal, her injury wasn't recognized."
The label made it clear that the earlier reports were one-sided, "We're very disappointed about the one-sided reports from the accuser making headlines and that the truth is being exaggerated."
KeyEast added that Kim Hyun Joong will be willingly complying with police investigations in order to reveal the truth.
The statement further mentioned that he plans to continue to fulfill the current commitments in his schedule, and afterwards, he will be focusing on resolving the case against him.
The official statement concluded that the agency took a day to figure out the situation clearly before addressing yesterday's reports.
